Sheds

Way outta my league :-))

Those ain't sheds, not a workbench in sight and I'd hate to swing a 12' length of 3"x2" around in them. :-O

I would call them either garden sheds, micro caves or outhouses myself. :-D

They are interesting though. ;-)

Cheers.

Lucky devil, bit sharpish here :-(

I won't be seeing anything of the 1st match, but I maybe home in time to see half of the 2nd match, though I will have my radio with me so I maybe able to listen to them if I can get a signal where I'll be today.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone from a cool but sunny Saturday morning down under.

I just finished cleaning up the brewroom after bottling 6doz longnecks of ginger beer yesterday and getting a post or 2 in before my visitors wake up.

Goodness knows if I'll get a Beer O'clock in today as I have a trip, 1.5hrs south, to make, so I don't know what time I'll be back this arvo/evening (if I get back today at all).

Anyhow, I hope that you all have a great day.

Cheers.

Cheers.

Cheers.


[edit 2] Oops.. I don't know what I did there,... The WI's are batting and are now 8/145 in the 38th over.... I better go again. ;-)

Good morning Wiggo, may the lappy and iphone job go quickly for an early beer o'clock :) Cheers :)

It should hopefully be a very quick job Zapped, but a lot will depend on the other person's understanding and remembering what to do (it'll be more of a teaching lesson than anything else, I hate teaching).

Cheers.

Not that button the other one! Cheers :)

Yes, I'll probably need an extra beer or 2 during Beer O'clock after that, not to mention that the person should've been here 30mins ago. ;-/

My missus used to handle this sort of work, but sadly next week will be 8th year since her passing. :-(

Cheers.

Thanks for the update Matt. :-)

Well my main rig did do a dip into CPU backup work, probably about 5mins before things started to move here (as usual), but it's still very hard to get much work.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, after my late night, just watching the cricket was all I was doing this time.

Now I'm just waiting for a laptop and iPhone to turn up for Thorsday's job of the day.

Beer O'clock in 3hrs.

Cheers.

One of the conundrums of life Annie :-)

But what I want to know is this. If men get beer bellies, what do women get drinking wine?

They get pissed and pass out.

Or very sick. ;-)

Cheers.

I've sort of let this thread slide for a bit, but Alex, I and many others around the world have to agree with Umpteenth Snark here.

If it wasn't for your "fakelaki" tradition, your country wouldn't be in the financial mess that it's in now (and that's a fact). :-(

Anyone caught practicing that tradition here will at least be sacked, if not spend quite some time in jail (we had a state Premier here recently lose his position over an undeclared gift of a bottle of vintage wine and a few other politicians are actually facing prison time). ;-)

Outlawing that stupid practice there would in fact help your country a very great deal.

Cheers.

We've had a heatwave here the last 2 days with 29C yesterday and 30C here today plus tomorrow should be about the same before a cool change arrives again.

Cheers.

I'd go with James' train of thought myself, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here in Aussieland. ;-)

Cheers.
