Monday night began, as any other normal weeknight. Arrive home, fix dinner, fluff about a bit, when suddenly, out of the blue, I have a thought. Maybe I should pull the waxing kit out of the medicine cabinet.

So off I toddle to what’s to be, the site of my demise. The bathroom!!

It was one of those COLD wax kits. No melting a clump of hot wax. You just rub the strips together in your hand. They get warm. You peel them apart. Press them to your leg, or wherever, and, hey presto!! The hair comes off.

No mess!
No fuss!
Perfecto!! How hard can it be? I mean, I’m no genius, but I’ve got smarts enough to work with this.

So, I pull out one of the thin strips. They’re actually TWO strips, facing each other, and stuck together. Okay!! I get it!! but instead of having to rub them together to wa…

The Sunshine Coast of Queensland

Firstly erosion from the surge of cyclone Hamish, took it’s toll on our pristine coastline, and then, a 250-tonne oil slick hit us, from the Hong Kong flagged Pacific Adventure cargo ship, when it’s hull was ruptured by one of 31 containers of ammonium nitrate, (a poisonous powder used in the manufacture of fertilizer), which broke free and plunged overboard into Queensland’s Moreton Bay.

Pacific Adventure battled 9 meter waves, as it travelled into the full force of Hamish. The reason why the ship was out in cyclonic seas will be the subject of a full investigation.

The thick oil slick, 50m wide, spread throughout our eastern seaboard, covering 30km of coastline on Moreton Island, with patches of oil found on Bribie Island, and Sunshine Coast beaches, from Dickie Beach,…

"Gripe Sheet" lololol!

After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out, what has come to be known affectionately as a “gripe sheet” . It points out to the aircraft mechanics, problems encountered with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the same form; the pilots review the gripe sheet right before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humour.

Listed below are some of the actual maintenance complaints submitted by the Qantas’ pilots, (marked with a P), and the solutions, recorded by the maintenance engineers, (marked with an S).

By the way, it is relevant to note that Qantas is the only major airline in
the world that has never, ever, had an accident!

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left in…

Home Renovations....

Sorry I haven’t been around to keep abreast of everyone’s recent uploads. I’m having work done at home, and it’s dragging on forever, as is the nature of renos I guess!! My time on the bubble is down to a few mins a day, or so jolly late at night, I can barely keep my eyes open. As is typical with me, I have to put on my nailbag too and get amongst it. lol!

I’ve also had some trouble with my “series” uploads being mucked up. Those of you who visited my Drifted Wood series, and How’s da la Vista will be able to see what’s been happening to them. All of my uploads have been replaced by the lead shot, repeating itself, and replacing them. :-/ Weird hey??? It’s happened to a total of nine of my best works, and it’s very concer…

Holy Moly!!! A hat trick plus one!!

(4)…that’s FOUR of my shots, one more than my hat trick, (which I was over the moon about), now head up the New Zealand Made front page feature. Howzatt!!! for a great start to the day!! lolol!
Thank you New Zealand Made and thank you all, for your continued appreciation and support of my efforts, to bring to you the beauty that is New Zealand. Drinks are on me!!! lolol!

I have no idea why.....

but I have just realized, that I’m not being notified of anyone on my
watchlist’ posting new shots, with the exception of our darling Hilary, WHO, if my memory serves me right, had the exact same problem a couple of months ago.

I look like having to do what she did then, and delete everyone, and reinstate.

My sincerest apologies my friends.

I have been making time each day to visit each and everyone of you, since returning from my holiday, but I’ll be darned if I know what’s happened to my notifications. Has anyone else been suffering the same glitch?
