It seems to have been a long haul of dust and red dirt this summer, but we have finally had some rain over the last 10 days and the pasture is germinating everywhere.  Because it has not been too cold and we have also had some days of sun, the growth has been quite rapid, […]

While much of Australia over the Summer and early Autumn periods have been getting quite a bit, or even excessive rain, much of the South West of Western Australia has been getting very little.  Our own location here at Eagleburra has only had 29.1mm with the biggest fall on a single day being 4.6mm.  The […]

I’ve been looking through my photos for some that show how the paddocks are doing – definitely been eaten down in the past month so it will be time to start feeding hay in the near future. And one of a litter of rescued orphaned feral farm cats that a friend is helping to raise.  […]

Fairly heavy rains upriver from us in the Blackwood Valley catchment area caused the Blackwood River to flood this year.  Although we did not get any rain here, both ends of our road were closed for a few days – something that we honestly did not expect to see again until mid winter.

I have been hand milking Charlotte for the past ten days and we have been doing OK for a pair of hand milking newbies.  Actually the milking is the easy part – its a) getting her into the yard and then b) getting her into the crush that is the hard part!  She seems to […]

Spring is finally here, the days are warming and the vegie garden is progressing, although slowly as we are still having frosts every night.  In an attempt to get a headstart with some seedlings, I have started some seeds in a makeshift coldframe – white polystyrene vegie boxes covered with clear plastic.  The inside temperature […]

We have a few large piles of wood that are taking up pature space and breeding snakes, foxes and termites (making it no good for firewood either), so now that the fireban has been lifted and itswet enough not to be a risk for everything catching fire, its time to build some bonfires!

As cold as it is, getting up early on autumn mornings in the country can be so worth it!

Like many other things over the hot dry summer that we have just had, this blog has been sadly neglected.  Now that winter is hopefully on its way I do plan on updating this blog more frequently, as well as going back in time and adding some posts and photographs.  Lucky for me I do […]

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
