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?

    Jeepers one and all, has everyone deserted The Weekend Social? Where are all the Weekendistas?????

    I will consult with the feathered fiends, quote Shakespeare to them and be answered with a cluck! An intelligence level that may well exceed replies at a certain Party Conference. If you are in doubt go to YouTube and look up “The Secret Life of Chickens”. Clever girl!!!!!!!

    Plants, Yes, Wellington is turning on a terrible spring courtesy of Global Warming: the warm surface water mass in the Pacific is early and dragging cool water mas air north, constant bloody southerly which tomatoes do not appreciate. Will perchance the above Conference debate how this phenomenon chills my chickens legs and nurdles my tomatoes grunions? Or will it blithely go happy motoring and more carbon on the basis I will grow more trees?

    I give up, fishing it is.

      Not conferencing, working. Annual deadlines suck 🙂 

    • Uturn 1.2

      That reminds me of a film, The Natural History of the Chicken.

      Approximately 55 minutes of kindly chicken madness.

      Hello E in R. Yes, most definitely blustery and damp here in Wgtn this arvo. Especially up here at the top of the northern burbs, its come over all wuthering heights. Still, have managed to construct a wind shelter for the tomatoes and capsicums. Admit it was too early plant capsicum and our ducks have a fondness for them, so they are struggling a bit. If the wind and drizzle settles a bit we have the intention to plant up the remainder of the free council plants we received to jazz up the verge in between the footpath and the boundary. Next weekend the project gets bigger as I’ve joined a neighbourhood planters group and the next task on the list is to plant up one of our reserves………….

      Happy fishing:-)

    I’m doing nothing 😉 Christmas tree light up at the Rathaus on Saturday and the Christkindl markets open, wurst, punch and waffles from now until New Year.

      Rosy are you in Germany?

      • rosy 3.1.1

        We’re in Vienna for a couple of years. I know… it’s hell 😉

          Well Rosy, think of us back here in NZ swatting sandlflies and mozzies at xmas as you feast on delicious lebkuchen and sip on gluvein (sp?) in the quaint surrounds of a charming 500 year old establishment. Sure does sound like hell………..:-)

            Ah, so you know this part of the world at Christmas… Yes, we will enjoy it. It is strange, though, not having a BBQ and water fights with the kids on Christmas day. Prost!
