“I consulted the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and I had a long conversation on the phone to the tree guy there,” she said.”What you do is cut them back, chose the smallest ones, and then take as much of the root as you can and see how you go.”With help from locals volunteering their time and gardening experience, Ms Hogan has begun the process of selecting smaller trees to dig up and move to a new home.

While there is no guarantee the moved trees will survive, the project has already been a success for Ms Hogan.”It is a majorly significant and very intensely, highly meaningful start of what is going to be a bigger, longer and slower process,” she said.”It’s just such a treat to have an idea and to actually execute it.”

Once the warmer weather comes and the larger trees start to bud, Ms Hogan and her helpers will be back to the orchard to take cuttings to try to strike and graft varieties that are too big to move.”You take a length of growing shoot and you bury a number of nodes in a well-draining mixture of cow poo and sand,” Ms Hogan said.”Then this time next year they’ll have roots and be little trees.”

Children and families have helped dig holes, ready for the transplanted trees. Now is the time to prepare fruit and nut trees for the coming spring — and sometimes that means moving them to another suburb.When Mini Hogan spotted an abandoned orchard on Marys Hope Road in Hobart’s northern suburbs, she wondered if there was a way to save some of its fruit and nut trees.

“We’re pretty sure about the cherry and exactly sure about the almonds,” she said of the bare-branched trees.”But we’re not exactly sure about everything else, so there’s a bit of a lucky dip about what will grow.”The end of winter is a good time to move fruit and nut trees when they are still dormant. (ABC Radio Hobart: Carol Rääbus)
Ms Hogan volunteers at the Child and Family Centre in Chigwell, which was looking at establishing a community garden, and she saw a chance to help out with some free trees.”It’s all about food security and biodiversity,” she said, adding that she was not even sure if established fruit trees could be moved.

Some of the trees are far too big to be moved so cuttings will be taken.

A primary school student has impressed NASA with his offer to “learn to think like an alien” in order to protect Earth.Jack Davis wrote to the space agency to apply for the position of planetary protection officer, advertised on NASA’s website in July. The planetary protection officer job involves protecting planets, moons and asteroids from contamination during human and robotic space exploration, as well as preventing any microbes from travelling back to Earth.”Although the planetary protection officer position may not be in real-life what the title conjures up, it does play an important role in promoting the responsible exploration of our solar system by preventing microbial contamination of other planets and our own,” NASA said in a statement.Dr Green said the agency’s staff were happy to inspire the next generation of explorers.”Think of it as a gravity assist — a boost that may positively and forever change a person’s course in life, and our footprint in the universe,” he said.

Jack signed his letter: “Guardian of the Galaxy” (Facebook: NASA)
“I may be nine but I think I would be fit for the job,” Jack wrote.”I have seen almost all the space and alien movies I can see.”I am great at video games.”I am young, so I can learn to think like an alien.”He signed off his application: “Sincerely, Jack Davis, Guardian of the Galaxy, Fourth Grade.”The letter impressed NASA recruiters, who sent back an encouraging reply to the would-be defender of Earth.”Our planetary protection officer position is really cool and is very important work,” Dr James L Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division, wrote.”We are always looking for bright future scientists and engineers to help us, so I hope you will study hard and do well in school.”We hope to see you here at NASA one of these days!”

Five years on Mars NASA’s Curiosity rover has already taught us a lot, but scientists say there’s more to come.

You ain’t pullin’ no wool over this boy’s eyes

I’m gonna leave your head ’bout the shape of a stamp
Kinda flattened out, so you’ll do well
To quit playin’ games with this U.S. Male ’cause I was born
In a Mississippi town on a Sunday morn
Now Mississippi just happens to occupy a place
In the southeastern portion of this here United States
Now that’s a matter of fact, buddy
And you know it well
So I just call myself the U.S. Now I said all that to say all this
I’ve been watchin’ the way
You’ve been watchin’ my miss
For the last three weeks you been hot on her trail
And you kinda upset this U.S. Male Male my friend
The U.S. ELVIS PRESLEYU.s. Male
You better not mess with the U.S. Male
You touch her once with your greasy hands
I’m gonna stretch your neck like a long rubber band
She’s wearin’ a ring that I bought her on sale
And that makes her the property of this U.S. Male my friend
The U.S.

Jack Off Jill – Media C-section Lyrics

Scare with your little disguise, it gives me someone to hide from,
Eating all your roaches and flies, in my mouth like bubble gum
Scar me with your venomous lies, you always have to remember,
Feed you with them razorblades, cause nothing lasts forever! Buy me, kill me, f**k me! I may be an evil girl, with my colgate smile,
And if I am an evil girl, you put me on trial
I want to kill on video, I want to go real far
Let me kill celebrities, and be your next media superstar! Buy me, hurt me, watch me, you destroy me
(I can’t take this shit) JACK OFF JILLMedia C-section Lyrics
Caught me with your video lies, it gives you something to lie about
Watch me with your retail eye, it gives you someone to spy on
Stab me with your double-blade knife, it gives you something to cry about
Drive me with your chemical high, it gives you something to write on
I may be an evil girl, with my colgate smile,
And if I am an evil girl, you put me on trial
I want to kill on video, I want to go real far
Let me kill celebrities, and be your next media superstar!

We won t leave you – Steve Void lyrics

You can turn it around. Steve Void lyrics
Video you Lyrics Steve Void – We won t leave you
On our own we jump, we fall, forgotten world
We’re running out, running out, running out
Won’t hide away anymore, like yesterday
‘Cause we’re running out now.(we won t leave you)
You can see it in our eyes
That we won’t look away
This time we’re here to stay
So we’re running out, running out now
We finally collide, crashing everyday
And if you feel afraid. We won’t leave you. (x3)
There’s a man sitting next to you
With a scar from his head and
Will stand to the last end
He could be the one that saves you
There’s a woman driving in a car
And she talk in the phone when
You crossing the street and
She could be the one that kills you. You can see it in our eyes
That we won’t look away
This time we’re here to stay
So we’re running out, running out now
We finally collide, crashing everyday
And if you feel afraid
We won’t leave youuu. (x3)
Time has come, to stand our ground and close the door
To paralyzed stereotyped f*cked up minds
Everyday, lesser choice versuri-lyrics.info
Where to go? We won’t leave you. You can see it in our eyes
That we won’t look away
This time we’re here to stay
So we’re running out, running out now

And if you feel afraid.

She love to call me daddy, I treat her like Pops

Barbies from New York, I hail out of Brooklyn
That’s why all eyes are on, yeah, I see you lookin’
That’s it, that’s it, that’s it, that’s it.

Blac Chyna Wants To Be Next Nicki Minaj Launch Rap Career

Sources are saying that the retired stripper turned social media mogul has been meeting with record labels including Capitol Records. She also got a restraining order against him so things are very complex between them at the moment. [email protected] @blacchyna #RakeItUpVideoShoot? Her music is described as poetry music and traditional singing, so perhaps she is dabbling in rapping and singing just like Nicki Minaj. We’ve seen other artists likes Cardi B successfully make a transition from reality shows to a career in rap music. Blac Chyna recently shoots a music video with Nicki Minaj and Yo Gotti for their collaborative single “Rake It Up.” Sources are saying that her appearance in the video and previous music videos before that has inspired her to launch her own music career. “She (Blac Chyna) is very serious about her music career and labels are taking her seriously,” sources said. The celebrity socialite has been doing a lot of party hosting at clubs over the last few years so perhaps it’s time for her to take the next step and start laying down some bars. Yes you heard that right and this is no joke, Blac Chyna, the same girl that has a baby for Tyga and Rob Kardashian is currently in the studio working on some new music, TMZ reported. Court docs show that Chyna is currently making way more money than Rob so it will be interesting to see who pays child support. Rob famously posted a bunch of nude photos and videos of his baby mama on Instagram while accusing her of cheating. Just to ?w/?? Only time will tell if she will land a major label deal, but if she is taking meetings and showing off her skills to label execs then it means that she is pretty serious about her next move. She threatened to sue for revenge porn and also said he physically abused her. A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on Jul 20, 2017 at 5:00am PDT

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are currently working out their custody agreement for their daughter Dream Kardashian and all seems to be going well. Blac Chyna recently made headlines for her failed relationship with Rob Kardashian. Blac Chyna is gunning to be the next Nicki Minaj and has already launched her rap career. #ItsBarbieBitch?

Watch Lil Yachty & Diplo “Forever Young” Video

Yachty shows off his affectionate side in the video while treating the reality star to a fun filled day. The tour will climax in Vancouver, Canada on September 24, but more dates could be added. In the day they ride on a waterslide and by evening they were racing go-karts. Diplo did not appear in the video. The track “Forever Young” is featured on his debut album Teenage Emotions. Sources are saying that Lil Yachty and India Love have been dating for a few months now despite his beef with Soulja Boy late last year over their alleged relationship with her. The video was directed by Alev Lill and say Yachty and India Love getting cozy while taking over an amusement park. Lil Yachty drop two music videos this week alone. Lil Yachty has been having a phenomenal year and next week (August 11) he will kick off his highly anticipated “Teenage Tour” in Dallas, Texas. You can always expect Lil Boat to be having fun with his music and in his videos and this time he had his girlfriend India Love as a co-star in the cut. After the fun filled video for “Marmalade” with Macklemore, he drops a new video for “Forever Young” featuring Diplo.

Is Lil Yachty Now Dating India Love Months After Soulja Boy Beef

A post shared by Baller Alert (@balleralert) on Dec 13, 2016 at 4:54pm PST

#lilyachty finally bags #indialove whatever happened to #souljaboy? That didn’t phase Lil Yachty because 10 months later and after his career took off he bagged The Westbrooks star. In the end, Soulja admitted that he wasn’t officially dating India but he still smashed her. The “Bring It Back” rapper says that they are just friends but that’s just the usual MO for celebrities when they started dating until someone spots them kissing in an amusement park or something. India Love co-star with Lil Yachty in his new music video “Forever Young” featuring Diplo, but sources are saying that they have also been quietly dating for a few months now. Soulja Boy has been very quiet on social media these days, perhaps this will capture his attention and we can expect a video rant from him this weekend. Months after his infamous beef with Soulja Boy over reality star India Love, Lil Yachty may have emerged the victor. Back in October last year, Lil Yachty and Soulja Boy got into a heated social media beef over India Love with the SODMG rapper even going as far as to threaten Yachty.

Tamar Braxton – Simple Things Lyrics

Baby
Think about all the times you’ve saved me
Baby let me be here for you
Appreciate everything you do
But not to the point of losing you
Cause you’re working, stressing
Hustling, guessing
About how you gonna pay all these damn bills
But I gotta be honest
That ain’t even why I’m here with you
Cause out of everything
I don’t want it
The day I met you baby
Cause I don’t really need
All the house, cars, clothes, rings
I don’t need nothing else from you
But the simple things
The simple, simple things baby, oh
Now, don’t misunderstand me
I love me a good man
Who love to take care of his good woman
But I don’t think you need to go on out here
And kill yourself over
No car, no house, no jewelry
Because at the end of the day baby
While you chasing all that
I’m really chasing you
We got lights, we got food
We got a phone, we can talk to each other
Hell we even got FaceTime I can find out where you at
And honestly, we don’t need none of that
As long as we got each other
Cause that’s all we really need baby
All I really need
Oh baby, oh baby! All I really want

That’s what I’m talking about baby, yeah.. TAMAR BRAXTONSimple Things Lyrics
When I woke up this mornin’

Before you walk out the door
Cause I ain’t about to walk around here
And watch you stressing no more
Baby
Think about all the times you’ve saved me
Baby let me be here for you
Appreciate all you do

Cause half of these chicks in Chanel baby
Be going through pure hell, oh!

Weezer – Feels Like Summer Lyrics

Which way is the graveyard? I’m an iceberg with a warm heart
I’m spiritual, not religious
I’m a Libra, if it matters
Shattered by an email
Your words will fade away
Castle built in the sand
Will only last one day Yeah it feels like summer to me
And she was a lover to me, to me, to me, to me…. WEEZERFeels Like Summer Lyrics
Climbing up the tower
Just a boy and his computer
I’m still in my bathrobe
Hiding in the shadows
I’m not used to losing
Bye, bye, sugar blue eyes
You’re home with the angels
Thank you for being so kind
I’m holding on and I don’t want to let you go
Yeah it feels like summer! Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer!

ERNEST TUBBIf You Call That Gone Goodbye Lyrics
If you call that gone goodbye ain’t nobody gonna cry
If you don’t want me baby every since I don’t want you
Plenty more with frills and lace a waitin’ now to take your place
So if you leave me it won’t make me feel blue
So go your way my darling I know I don’t mind and if you call that gone goodbye
You may think you’re leaving a broken heart behind
But if I’m blue I know the reason why
I know I never done you any wrong you don’t love me but I knew it all along
Now I don’t know or care just where you’re going but if you call that gone goodbye
[ guitar – steel ]
So go your way my darling…

Hunter – Freedom Lyrics

My pride was silent cry
My life was sacrifice
I DON’T FORGIVE MY CRY! HUNTERFreedom Lyrics
I close my eyes
Look deep inside
All what I see
It’s neverending lies
YOU! You made me feel so grown
And late throw down my crown
So now my youth is gone…
I feel closes of fear
Deep in my brain
All what I feel it’s neverending pain
MY! I introduce my bride
All always by my side
I hate my deadly pride
Now I ask you… This life that we create
This pain behind the gate
I need to feel my hate
PRIDE! Now I ask you
Set me free
Pray the heaven
I must stay like a steel
My belief
You should now give back to me
To my eyes can look and SEE…
HATE!
