Victoria Bushfires

This photo is by Mark Pardew. 

This past week has been a nightmare for many people and wildlife in Australia. Bushfires have been sweeping through Victoria and parts of New South Wales. Thankfully, Bob and I are far from any fires. But that can't be said for the residents of over 450,000 hectares which are now scarred tracks of land. Over 5,000 people have lost their homes, 180 have lost their lives, and the fires are still burning. 

I know times are tough right now, but if any of you have some spare change, the Australian Red Cross is taking donations to help with relief efforts. Thank you and I wish you all the best.
