So, what are you doing right now?
« on: December 25, 2013, 12:57:25 PM »
I's hot and windless here.

I'm preparing to do that time honoured South African thang...braaing. The missus is reading and she wanted piano music so that's what she got - from vinyl of course.

Judy the dachshund knows there's something afoot as it is following me from the wood shack to the fridge and then to the braai grill outside :whistler:

The dawg is on a diet so I don't quite know what to do. Maybe some earplugs for its nose??

Also extremely hot here in Great Brak and the sea is only 1km away. Daughter's in Australia, son's in the UK and my wife is out for the day. I liberated the warm crackling from the roast pork and am sitting in the triangle with the crackling, a cold Windhoek Light and some Roxy Music. Does it get any better ?? :) If the kids were here they would be the cherry on the top ......miss those guys !!

Lying down checking the forum while digesting a wonderful Christmas lunch. Slightly cool here in Pta so the traditional turkey etc has been manageable.

Had a nice little Christmas lunch with the family. Got myself nearly soaked with gingerbeer when I opened the bottle too fast.
Been sitting here with the laptop listening to tunes from iTunes via the Sennie HD380 phones, also researching the (in)famous Linn LP12 record player... I have a cunnning plan with a Thorens T165 plus a Linn Basik+ I have here.

Recovering after too much champagne (or should I say Cap Classique).  This year got some Thelema Cap Classique Ultra-Brut - absolutely marvellous, just as good as Moet and 1/5th the price

I'm reading your reply to this topic :ROFLMAO:

Until a few minutes ago, I was busy drilling a 0.25mm hole in a piece of titanium and then turn the thing into a 0.35mm tube. I've been 'at it' since 7:00pm. I made one tube but it flew away. The second one is safely in a closed container.

Only Sterkfontein knows why I'm doing this...

Are you visiting the Phillippines Rodney?  By far the most friendly people I have ever met (apart from Manila) and stayed there for 18 months a few years back.  When it rains, you know all about it!

Sitting on my bed, surfing the internet. Keeping an eye on the pool outside the window, watching the algae die. As they should, I have already fed them three bottles of algaecide. Really hard work.  :whistler:

Working now.  Gonna go to the beach in the arvie with the kids and wife.  An absolute belter in Strand today.  The beaches will be packed.  At least I get parking on the beach with my Life Saving Club membership card.  Will put my surfski on the roof racks and hit the water for a change.
