I was walking around Lake Ginninderra this morning listening to one of my favourite podcasts, viz., “No such thing as a fish” by the QI Elves. I’d like to mention that my favourite Elf is Anna. She is the funniest and wittiest of the group.
So as I was walking and listening I came across a fish. I’m assuming it’s a carp. The lake apparently has perch and cod in it and for all the fishers I see angling, I’ve only ever seen them catch carp.
Carp are an introduced species into Australia. They are vermin of the fresh aquatic waters of Australia. They stir up the mud and make the artificial lakes of Canberra unsightly. When caught, they are not allowed to be released, they must be killed. I’m guessing like other fish, they would make reasonable fertiliser. If I owned land, I’d catch carp and put them in holes in the ground and then plant a tree on top.
What have you done this weekend?
Yesterday I had a personal matter that was troubling but I managed to do some walking and housework but not a lot of cooking.
Today I continue with the troubling personal matter which I won’t divulge here suffice to say, I hope the situation improves. I managed a walk around Lake Ginninderra and I recorded a podcast.
A podcast you say
If you’re not aware, I have two other blogs one of which is also a podcast. The food blog is over at Yummy Lummy and the medical blog is over at Dr Gary Lum. Medical Fun Facts is the name of the podcast and you can search for it in the iTunes podcast store and also in Stitcher. I decided today that rather than dropping two shows a week I’m going to one a week (on Monday nights at 7 pm Canberra time). I’m getting busier at work and I need to adjust my work-life situation. It’s time for a little more work and less life. It’s good to readjust from time to time as situations change. Anyway, the other thing I changed with the podcast was to try video. You may have seen my Yummy Lummy YouTube channel, well, I’ve started a Medical Fun Facts YouTube channel. I’m not sure if it will continue, but it was worth trying. We’ll see!
In the southern hemisphere, we’re now getting close to the start of winter and the end of autumn. I shot some photographs which show the beauty of the change of seasons in Canberra.

I hope the coming week will be good for you
What are you up to in the coming week? For me, I’m going to be busy at work. I also have a day in Melbourne for a meeting which I hope will go well.
Have a good week my friends
