Handle9: Miss 10 cleaned up in her netball prize giving. She got player of the year for her club team and won player of the year in the overall competition prize giving. She can battle for recognition at times so this was really nice.

 

 

 

I used to strive to avoid that sort of recognition (and still do) because I find it excruciatingly difficult being singled out in public like that. I even went as far as not attending events in case it happened!

Starting today: Teslas made in Germany. Much easier to prevent complaints about MICs.

Have just stumbled across Taboo on Netflix. IMO it’s a brilliant 2017 series that, when I search back in GZ, I see has been favourably commented upon at times in the TV Series thread.

 

It has a starry cast headed by Tom Hardy and including Oona Chaplin - the granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin. The thing that makes me smile is how strongly some genes work down the generations. Oona was about 30 when the series was made and she is the spitting image of Charlie at the same age when he was reaching stardom 100 years earlier around 1920. The resemblance is staggering.

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

The Tip Shop in our area requiring a vaccine pass when it’s mostly outside except for a draughty bit in the middle.

To enforce this ruling there was a man placed at an official desk at the gate with sanitiser and a clipboard...which everyone walked past and ignored as he kept eyes on his phone. I got the feeling he wasn’t interested in the flak he would likely receive.

Heh, it turned up last night as my primary recommendation. I think Netflix might be tracking me.

God, I love Feijoas. 

 

Sadly my wife can't stand them and the smell of them in the house even is beyond her. It's a constant struggle :)

I did that today too! Except I don't really like them, but felt obliged. Mostly I just let them fall to the ground and rot. :D

Same here today. This year's crop looks to be pretty sparse though. Shame that covid means I could barely taste them...

Mother Neb asked whether I could come up and help glue a terracotta pot that had fallen over and cracked. She was going to use superglue but I wasn't optimistic about cyanoacrylate doing a terribly good job on porous ceramic, unless it was maybe a small chip somewhere. My guess was exterior construction adhesive would be the best bet.

 

 

So when I get there I find this:

 

 

 

 

And those were just the larger parts.

 

 

Kintsugi perhaps?

Check the price of a replacement 1st, it could be less than the cost of adhesive.

I wouldn't put much faith in any attempt to repair that, without internal bracing I can't imagine any adhesive would hold it together long or well. The style is known as a long tom pot but it's quite large and not easy to find in that size, so we'll replace it with a blue glazed one we've got back home.

I have seen houses for sale where people have a cheap pot like that outside with it being held together with wire around it to pull it together. If they are so cheap that they fix a $8 plant pot like that, how bad is all the other work on the house you have to think.

I was just behind a couple of polite kids in line at the dairy. The dairy owner gave them a 25% discount because they didn't have enough money between them.
