The Australian landscape is dominated by eucalyptus trees, which have also taken well to parts of other continents such as southern Africa, California and even Europe (around Rome)! One variety is the (Sydney) Blue Gum with a Linean name of Eucalyptus saligna. This particular variety has a white/grey trunk, and grows to a height of 55 metres (175 feet for the metrically impaired).

The domain name bluegum.com is not for sale. Well, never say never, but a seven figure amount could certainly change my mind. In other words, I am not really interested in selling it.

One hundred years since end of World War I
November 11th, 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice ending World War 1. To commemorate this event, volunteers knitted or crocheted 62,000 poppies to place on the lawn at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, one for each life lost during the "war to end all wars".
An 8 minute video shows the display:
