Working from home today to allow me the option to go and stand over a bank manager to MAKE him process our new mortgage application in time. This should save me having to make a payment to both the old mortgage AND the new one this month (if that happens I’ll be offline for the…Continue reading Autumnal Musings
Koyaanisqatsi – borrowed from a friend, watched last week. “If we dig precious things from the land, we will invite disaster. Near the Day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky. A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky, which could burn the land and…Continue reading Life out of Balance
tee hee, heh… teee hheeee…. hehee…. Ohhh how she laughed. Well it was more of a giggle to be honest, a muted little murmuring. I wasn’t even sure what she was laughing at… I have a routine, some would say ritual, when I’m in bed trying to get to sleep. Lying on my right side,…Continue reading Mister Sandman
Is it just me? God, I hope it isn’t, I THINK it isn’t. But what if it is? I’m gonna sound daft…. How old do you feel?

Lunch in the Abbotsford. Check holiday details with sister-in-law, get mortgage papers signed and witnessed. Meet up with my parents. Out for dinner to…Continue reading Whoosh
UPDATE: All of the extensions have been checked and are compatible with Firefox 1.0. Thanks to Adrian and Thom for some additional suggestions. I’ve recently introduced a couple of people to the Firefox browser. I have to admit to getting quite a buzz watching their faces light up as you show them the basic features…Continue reading Igniting the Web
Was it fate or coincidence that happened to choose Cake’s ‘Fashion Nugget’ album to play after I listened to Pete’s album? Either way it seemed apt. Vocally Pete’s voice is a mix of Edwyn Collins, David Bowie and.. well someone else I’m sure. Sounds wise I think Cake and the Coral are the first names…Continue reading Don't go to hell
Long term readers may recall that I love my watch. It’s Danish design excellence AND it tells the time. What more could a man want? Well.. this Suunto watch might go on the list. I HAVE mentioned when my birthday is… haven’t I?
