Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.
No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?
asleep, wake, stumble, lawn, garden, sun, sea, kids, play, beer, beer, play, kids, sea, sun, garden, lawn, stumble, wake, asleep.
Not enough beers…put a few more in.
Like! to both the above ground
I’m going to spend the weekend working out a rig to carry 6 bikes on a small trailer. Otago Rail Trail here we come…
Camper bike looks like the one for you then r0b.
Nice – I want me a couchbike.
That bike’s pretty frickin’ cool. Otago Rail Trail rocks – enjoy!
My family’s headed away so I’m going to be focusing on cleaning and tidying… I know how to have fun…
Cheers Bunji – and don’t you have too much fun now!
Awesome. I love Otago.
My father bought a patch on land in the middle of central Otago (in the middle of nowhere up a long dusty drive) sorta inbetween St Bathans and Roxbourgh. He plonked two huts on the land that he built them himself entirely from items scavenged from the Oamaru recycling centre.
Everything from the walls, the cutlery, windows, the shower stall. All recycled and put in by hand.
His efforts are stunning and the view/area without comparison. So rare that I get down there these days.
Otago Trail fantastic. Great to stay in places along the way, though some came unstuck by wind hurtling through the cuttings. We hired bikes and that was great and not too expensive.
Couple of wonders last weekend: caught some feisty rainbows in the Wairarapa and found some of my “plantings” among the weeds on a hill side track (good edible root veges- just spread the peelings on the long acre )…was really pleased to see they have taken.
This weekend the chickens are demanding access to the berry beds, looks like a bumper crop coming on. The girls are a little pre-empt as we are a few weeks from ripening, and I intend to out eat them this year (so long as they don’t give me the sad eye and beak treatment).
I’m acquiring two budgie chicks to add to the misery of the oldies in the aviary who just want to be left alone to eat and sleep. Gave up breeding my own chicks – too stressful. The females without eggs or chicks were jealous of the ones who did have them and it was a full time job coping with the feather-flying mayhem. The males would sit on the top-most perches and watch them fighting. They never once lifted a claw to assist me to stop it. Bloody typical.
Drinks with an old friend from South Africa tonight, dinner party tomorrow, Skyfall on Sunday.
Nothing exciting: work, a little light socialising, sleep: rinse & repeat.
Gardening some ellipses…in the Son

Looking for a fun business investment? The video itself is an amusing piss take and commentary on Scientology but those involved are looking to expand the idea into a computer game. I’m seriously thinking for throwing in a grand or two and taking some advice. Watta youse reckon?

Dr contracted to ACC fiddles another $18,300 of fees cos’ 750K wasn’t enough for the year.
The exibition of archaeological “hobbit man” is layed under siege by Lawyers grasping the ring

Locally, broadband roll-out work accelerating under central govt. pressure to complete while
damage problems increase and “skilled staff” (quote) are difficult to find, recruit, train or retain.
Some big “is-ought” gap there in employment training policy and initiatives…?
Quote “skilled staff are decreasing” wtf?
