People complaining to RNZ because announcers have been saying "cock-up" on air.

Year - springtime for me (unfortunately autumn for you) ... raising chilies and rare tomatoes for the summer BBQs. Temperatures climbin' and daylight saving time starts this weekend - one hour longer in the evening! This is worth a grilled roe buck fillet and a french red tomorrow for lunch or dinner (the sportive tinkerlady highly appreciates kitchen deliveries like that).

 

 

 

... and this cover featuring Iron Maiden's Aces High. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzduoBPDRMk

So what's wrong with a nice smooth Carignan based wine in Autumn and Winter? laughing

 

It's so hard to get a decent French Red here in NZ (according to one's taste that is).

Nothing at all! Enjoy any good stuff you have locally there and I would always propagate to buy local food! Unfortunately this isn'nt the case here. You can have any wine (as well from your country) travelled around the whole world. To prevent this you have to drink more wine of your own country. wink

I met that woman 19 yrs ago and we've been married and child free for the last 16 yrs. Many people don't understand our decisions, but that's just it. They are our decisions.

 

 

 

Wishing you both all the best.

 

 

 

PS.... My wife's 5ft 1in so she also qualifies as something small that makes me smile.

When you find a thread on another forum with the exact same issue about crap motherboard USB configurtation, and someone on the thread has made an app and put it on github to change the USB port configuration to not be the braindead one that the motherboard manufacturer baked into the UEFI.

 

All USB 2 devices now on the EHCI controller and plenty of endpoints to go around for all the devices which need them on the USB 3 controller. All endpoint hogging razer devices, game controllers, hubs, card readers, arduinos, HDDs etc all connected and working now.

MikeB4: Being able to use all four limbs. Again.

 

Congratulations.  it's one of these things that most take for granted.

 

Mrs. Floyd snapped her achilles tendon last year and we quickly came to realise that civilisation is not well designed for those with limited ability to move.

Being able to walk in the sun. May not sound like much but it is a new beginning.

Ha, I estimate my 3 kids will have cost me around 1 million dollars by the time they leave home. 

 

Good on you though, everyone does things for their own reasons.

When you check your email and see a message that a particular individual has resigned.
