[personal profile] piranha

don't know which cultivar since there are about a gazillion. i remember when dahlias were those big, stiff balls, and i thought them boring. but these days there are a lot that i like, mostly single and collarette variants. i wouldn't grow this particular one; it's not a colour combination i like -- but it looked nicely dramatic,

rain rain rain. i mostly slept, read, and worked in lightroom. i also got a beta copy of photoshop CS4, which is very different from CS2.

the news for the reformatories today wasn't good: the federal parliamentary budget officer released his report on the projected cost of the war in afghanistan, and it's more than double what the reformatories have been telling us -- pretty much what a couple of other sources have said recently.

he also said said it’s impossible to come up with an accurate number because there are many variables and not all the government departments involved have provided enough information. and he warned that the figures are so ill-defined that the war might threaten the government's long-term budget projections as expected surpluses decrease.

ah yes, these "conservatives" are so good for our wallets. (nevermind the other problems with being this involved with a war on foreign soil, a war the US mostly pissed away after getting us involved.)

From my mum via email: "It is a Juanulloa, possibly Juanulloa Aurantiaca (the plant I mean)." Hope this helps. :)
