Christmas truce 1914Weekend 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?

    If you can, just focus on the achievement of the effort, for here is a great watch. I imagine it looks even better on a big screen – might go visit a friend’s 50 inch just to enjoy the spectacle again.

    Hmmmn, my chilli’s in the greenhouse have these grey-green raised lumps on the top-surface of the leaves, but otherwise the plants are fine. Any idea people what it is and if it’s going to cause future problems? As I’m probably going to take some cuttings this weekend and try and cultivate them for next seasons chilli crop.

    Otherwise it’s sleep, sleep, 20km bike ride, more scale insect removal (chilli’s be infested with them) and finishing off a side project that’s going to be about 2000 words+ on game level design of all things…

      Keep the seeds from your chillis dry them and store in an airtight container. Do this with gloves on as they are hot. Shouldn’t have to grow them from cuttings. Sow seeds in September then prick out to grow on individually. In the Far North we grow chillis out door all year they can handle mild to medium frosts. Raised lumps will be possibly thrips or midges. Likely to be caterpillar of moth of some kind . Spray with strong neem dose. every 10 days.

        Cheers, as long as it’s not viral that’s good. I’ll just take the cover off the greenhouse and let the frosts do there thing and kill off stuff and hose out the concrete blocks.

        As for seeds – not always the best way for propagation as sometimes you want to preserve a cultivare and are growing different cultivares in the same space, or you’re growing hybrids. In this case, one of the wildfire hybrids from bunnings was a bit weird and instead of large chilli’s and compact-ish growth, it went nuts and produced lots of small, tasty stinking hot chillies. So I want to see how well it’ll go when I plant it outside next season.

        And usually I just let the high heat of the tunnel house bake the bugs :3 Who needs chemical sprays (natural or synthetic) when on a sunny day you can hit 40 degrees plus inside? 😛

        And you can grow chilli’s outside down in Christchurch, it’s just that you get a lot more growth with a greenhouse set up, as night time temperatures are usually a bit too low. Though the rocoto’s are growing like weeds down the back even now.

    Many of you will have heard or read about Lieutenant Colonel Alfred Daniel Wintle MC. This British officer was wonderfully eccentric and was featured in a docodrama in 1995 Heroes and Villains. I was looking him up on wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Wintle and
    he is so entertaining and admirable I thought I’d bring him to The Standard’s attention. He is well worth reading the full Wikipedia. (There is a book which is offered at over $100 and a DVD at much less with amazon uk).

    His mixture of patriotism to Britain, that led him to join up at 18 in World War I (where he very soon was injured, later to loose some fingers and be almost blinded) led to some dramatic and some funny incidents. Here is a quote from the extensive Wikipedia report:

    After the French surrender, Wintle demanded an aircraft (with which he intended to rally the French Air Force to fly their planes to Britain and continue fighting Germany from British air bases); when refused, he threatened an RAF officer (Air Commodore A.R. Boyle) with a gun. It was alleged that he had threatened to shoot himself and Boyle, and for this he was imprisoned in the Tower of London. On the way to his prison, the lieutenant colonel was escorted by a young soldier via train. The soldier is reported to have lost the arrest warrant; disgusted by this, Wintle declared the man incompetent, told him to wait where he was and went to get a new warrant. Since there was no other officer of higher rank at the warrant office, he signed the paper himself. Of his time in the Tower, he wrote:

    I’m reading “A Very Short History of the World” by Geoffrey Blainey. I was surprised to read that geography and sea levels had made it imperative that Hiroshima and Nagasaki be nuked by as early as 100,000 BC. Still, he’s the historian.

      looking for Gr8 mates? Drink Speights (old and dark, 5 malts, Mac) 😀
      what is your day job anyway?

      • The Al1en 7.1.1

        Thought I’d make this Thursdays effort a little dig at a&r people during NZ music month.
        Their – my +

        “looking for Gr8 mates? Drink Speights (old and dark, 5 malts, Mac)”

        First drink I ever had was Olde English cider, and I’ve been an honorary Worzel ever since.

        “what is your day job anyway?”

        Although I’m grey, I have green fingers to match my good eye.

          aye, a good eye. “EMI said you’re out of hand, and they gave us the boot, But they couldn’t sack us just like that, without giving us the loot.”

          in the local community paper was an article about a roots band who use Soundcloud, and a couple of other public listing sites.I don’t go to gigs anymore, moderation on a budget and all that. 🙂

      “Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,

      He put her in a pumkin shell
      And there he kept her very well.

      Had another, didn’t love her;
      Peter learned to read and Spell,
      And then he loved her very well.

    Another fun thing today is radionz drama time. Greg Ellis has ad libbed a great political protest song called We’re going to sell your Assets Because We Care. I definitely think this should be uplifted to reach a wider public hearing. The setting for his muse was Jamaica where he was inspired by Jenny Shipley. And he went off with Jamaican sound effects and style. Radionz after 3 pm sunday.

    Vance Fontaine – Command Performance
    Improvised by Greg Ellis & his band The Peculiar Sensations

    The life and times of Kiwi crooner Vance Fontaine, told in improvised musical storytelling before a live audience.
    With the help of audience suggestions, master improvisers Vance and his band create songs and stories on the spot, and tie it all together into a biographic retrospective. If you can imagine it, it happened to the Vance, and if you can name a musical style, Vance and The Peculiar Sensations can play it.
    Sunday 5 May 2013

    Cast: Greg Ellis with The Peculiar Sensations: Tane Upjohn-Beatson, Takumi Motokawa, Thomas P. McGrath, Matiu Whiting

  11. I got rained off today so I made a few changes to the song (same link as above) in NZ music month and sent it off to a NZ record company, who to my bemusement, have never bothered to reply before.
    I’m not really expecting one, but I can’t work out why? 😆

    NZ music month, so I thought I’d write a song for a&r people, the unsung heroes
    and heroines of the music business.
    Thanks for the mediocre talent in nice frocks, NZ thanks you. Without you,
    talent shows wouldn’t have prizes and I wouldn’t have Ruby Frost.

    Only joking, you rock, agent Grey. 😆
