No backup, no pity. Anyway, RAID isn't one.

I'm going to a graduation soon.  Not for our kid.  My SO - who'd been sorely failed by the NZ high-school education system a few decades ago but regardless of that managed to salvage a decent career through determination, character, and hard slog, possibly some luck - but they say you make your own.  She earned a degree the other day - and she absolutely aced it.  Unexpectedly, the academic panel awarded her a double major, apparently some of them literally broke down in tears of joy, telling her that her work was the best they'd seen in their entire careers.

 

Maybe this wasn't something "small".  I've been smiling for days.  Bravo.

Clay-barred, waxed and polished the car on the weekend.  Cat comes along thinking "I'll jump up on that and leave little muddy paw prints, just to sealedMike off"  Jumps on the bonnet and slips/falls right off.  Golden. Take that Shadow-spawn.

Got a Spectra 2.0 Global, next week paid off-time and a travelling voucher from my boss. :-)

 

I agree, not so small - but it makes me smile.

My 6 year old daughter this morning as I woke her up "I love you more than you love me, it's not impossible, it's not impossible and I have a whole bag of "it's not impossible, right here, with your name on it". Took me about 5 minutes to stop cracking up.

 

Big mistake, now it's the only thing she will say :)

Seeing the excellent job one of the parent helpers at my sons school did of making him look "Gangsta" with eye makeup, a singlet and teaching him how to exude a tough attitude for the school production. I wouldn't have thought a short very skinny white 9 year old could look scary :)

That John Campbell has gone somewhere I will never see or hear him and I can once again enjoy my drive home with National Radio :)

Think it would be getting close to that for many people if they have to get 98... Crazy expensive now. Not sure I want to buy a classic cadillac when I win the lotto since filling it up would take the rest of the winnings.

Exceed is a marvellous outfit. They have fixed several things for us and friends - eg. track slider/carriages on 20 yo aluminium bi-fold deck doors that I would never have expected them to have parts for. One friend had some huge, massively-heavy wooden-frame glass doors out to their deck which wouldn’t slide properly - and Exceed fixed those too. Can’t speak highly enough of them.
