        Yes, well I think VIC, NSW and TAS are more temperate, right?

        NSW is big enough that it has a bit of everything, depends on where you are. Vic is probably temperate, yes. Tassie…it gets pretty cold down there. Summers can be pleasant, but my brother was down there one summer and people had their fire-places burning…so sometimes they’re cold too!

      Good to see you, @Naomi25 haven't see you lately. My wife and I are trying to rest up a bit after Christmas; hope you and yours are doing well...

        Hi farouk, hope you all had a blessed Christmas. It was fairly busy for us too, but wonderful, catching up with family we haven’t seen for some time. So, yes, we’re resting up too!

      I see you still have that intriguing, eerie avatar photo, which is rather good. The light effect is rather striking.

        I do like the promise in Genesis 8.22: "While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

        Well...me too...but some people experience summer and winter in such a more....mild sense! Something to look forward to in the new heavens and earth! At the very least there I hope I won't feel the heat as much!

      @Naomi25 Still really struck by the photo on the avatar; there is something unique about the light and the Australian Great Outdoors...

        Not having lived anywhere else, I'm probably jaded by it. I most certainly do have my favorite times/seasons here when, yes, it absolutely can be fabulous!

        @Naomi25 Ppl do get accustomed to where they live; I must say that to me what I read read and seen pictures of from Australia makes it seem truly remarkable and unique in many ways.

      While the photo in your avatar is intriguing, and you say of course that it's from the unusual circumstances of the bush fires last year, yet I do think that photos of Australia reveal it in some ways to be a truly unique land that in various respects is really unlike anywhere else in the world: something about the flora and fauna, the land, the light: truly unique.

        So, were you referring to Sydney dementia or Canberra dementia? :)

        Sydney dementia! They seem incapable...no, worse...they recoil in horror, at the thought of living outside of Sydney! they wonder at the sanity and intelligence of those who live outside Sydney! For them, life doesn't exist outside Sydney! It's actually a little bit like Flat-earthers...its an unreasonable notion that Sydney is the only place that can be lived in.

        @Naomi25 I guess I sometimes have too much to say. (Sometimes this can happen in conversational Bible studies also....)

        The word 'problem' there doesn't really fit, either... :) I guess, 'privilege'...... ?

      How's Australia? any snow there?

      We have had snow up here....(Genesis 8.22)
      1. Naomi25
        Naomi25
        No...no snow here. I won't say there's no snow in Australia, because the Country is so big we can get all extremes. But currently our state is dry. Thankfully not so hot where I am, but up further the whole state is on fire...bit scary for all those poor people. The drought has been severe and everything is like a tinder box... Snow would be nice...I don't really like summer :)

        Brisbane is nice, although its a fair distance from where I live! I'm in Southern NSW...about 18 hours away.

      Hi Naomi, You are seeking to understand what God has planned for our future.
      But as there is so much confusion and opinion among Christians and the Bible prophesies are difficult to unravel, this is too hard for most.
      Don't give up! God does want His people to know, if you don't, you may not be one of His children. 1 Thess 5:1-5
      Check out my website; logostelos.info for free articles explaining the prophesies.
