The Ides of March

The Roman Senate used to meet near that tram stop. Of course, it wasn't a tram stop then. So across the street, and somewhere near the ruins in the next two photos...

... Julius Caesar was stabbed to death 2055 years ago today. Of course, they weren't ruins then.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
