Heartwarming clip of an Auatralian firefighter rescuing an injured koala caught in the current bushfires and giving it a drink of water

Here is the koala, nicknamed Sam, later at a wildlife rescue centre.

Today it has emerged that this occurred during some backburning the week before the major fires that are still burning now. Doesn't change the sweetness of the story, but does change the setting a little.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Yes well done that is. It's because like the BBC did once a show called "How do you solve a problem like Maria ?" looking for a new "Maria" for the musical, they are now doing the same here in Belgium. That is some kind of advert for it.

Gotta love Patrick Stewart :p

While we're onto things YouTube and Star-Trekky, check out William Shatner's immortal rendition of Rocket Man.
It's totally Shat-tastic :D
