Getting woken up by fireworks at midnight last night in an otherwise quiet suburb - and then I discovered today there's some fire ban in place!

 

 

 

 

The fire siren went off just after midnight here. Not sure if it was a fire or someone using it to announce the New Year!

I got a "marketing" email from a company, and thought to myself "I'm sure I'd previously unsubscribed from these". I clicked on the unsubscribe link, and got "error: you're already unsubscribed".

Yeah, but fireworks aren't included in the fire ban.

There’s a group of people at MetService earning very good salaries as professional liars.

There’s some at JetStar too but they’re way less professional.

Known fact: belts are prone to shrinkage through lack of use, especially during holiday periods that, quite coincidentally, include access to copious quantities of tasty food and beverages.

ETA; this phenomenon also extends to business attire including (but probably not limited to) shorts, trousers and (for women) skirts and dresses.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

That most of the rubbish we throw out is various types of plastic that can't be recycled such as cling wrap, plastic film, plastic bags.

 

Everything else that we can possibly recycle, we do. We also have a compost heap for organics.

Agreed. However, I have noticed that restaurants have switched to absorbent recycled cardboard for doggie bags, which are hopeless as the food sticks to it. They don't even put a wax paper slip in it!
