well its all go tomorrow i’ve rented a car i’m and off to Auckland .. i’ve been busy all week trying to get a job done so i can go away without it being on my mind… now all that is left is to do is study the map , i have been to mikes place many times but this time i’ll be driving , thank god for google….

  i wish you all a happy easter…………

happy day

today i’m on ACC with a sore head , if i didn’t have a hard hat on it would have been worse , so i was home when the mail arrived .. this brough a letter from ACC and it would appear that i have over paid my levies , with this letter was a cheque and not a small one ….  all the things i could have brough , car , motorcycle ,  bicycle(carbon fiber one) .. i brought the one thing that  is better than a  toy , freedom from debt …the bank lost some projected interest today and not a small amount …now this morporc can fly………………………

crunchy or smooth

the world is divided into two category’s those who like crunchy peanut butter or smooth peanut butter…resently i hired a car for the weekend  ,having a bicycle as my only form of transport shopping is small amounts often , so i did a full weeks shopping and brought all the large quantities ..when it came to peanut butter they had run out of crunchy and i’m a crunchy guy  ( death before smooth ) i stood in the peanut butter isle in a quandary … i ended up getting the smooth ( better than nothing )  yesterday making my lunch ( peanut butter ,brie and anchovy ) i opened the jar of smooth  … i haven’t had smooth for so long that i had forgotten how smooth it was , god it was nice ,  i think that every now and then we should see thing from the other persons prospective …. you never know where this will lead……………

mining in new zealand

from the first moment that we wake everything that we do supports the mining industry from the alarm clock to the coffee pot , from  the back door key to the car we drive  , the roads we drive on to the desk we sit at , all are a product of mining  …. coal is the only way to heat the blast furnaces to make steel and without steel we cannot manufacture anything ..mining is the price we pay for all our comforts…if you strongly disagree with mining start and make the changes in your own home now , other wise you run the risk of being hypocritical……

mission imposible

the time has come to transfer my music and photos from my old laptop to my new laptop ..this is a task that i have been putting off for some time now , the main reason i have been putting it off is simple , i need to read the instructions . as a man this goes against all natural instincts , its worse than having to ask for directions.. my first attempt was simple . i connected the two computers with a lead then pressed enter, to my horror nothing happened , i thort we lived it an age of technology.. it was about now that the real horror set in  , i’m going to have to read instruction and that is possibly worse than saying “excuse me mate can you tell me where am i”… so i went  into the network shearing window and opened it up, i did this on both computers.. read the first instruction  and that is about as far as i have got….
