  1. Gnarls Barkely – can you play this classic Patu?

        Allow me to elaborate a little. I love this version even more…

        Whatever, whenever. I’m hoping to get a ‘b side’ from the ‘Stones’, in response…

    @ SF reminds me of In This Moment song Sick Like Me, sounds a little like thrash metal, some like Alien Weaponry in parts.
    Their album Black Widow is Head Banging stuff.

      That was cool PP. The title reminded me of this one.

      Must be that make-up of yours, trav. Clean it off and the world will seem a simpler place.

      Finally dealt to that nail cement with lethal acetone. Softened enough that a sharp knife could clean it off. Top’s a bit marked but not too bad.

      • Thanks guys for your ever so encouraging words of assistance. Seems I’m in. I did a big upgrade to Sierra on the mothership, so maybe that’s the fix.

      • You need to get considerably more OCD about your visitors Alan. Spot a gal with caked makeup and give her a number of plastic sheets. Sit down – one for the bed, lie down – two for the bed. Mandatory use for all surfaces make up is put upon and a general NAIL POLISH ban!

        • I wear makeup and nail polish, but don’t ruin the furniture with it. It gives a girl a bit of a lift to have that bit of colour.

          I bought two flannelback tablecloths from Briscoes that look like material; one looks like a retro barkcloth print. I don’t think that they would like glue, but they’d be all right with makeup. I still hope that the silly moo who did that was using epoxy glue and can’t get it off.

          We had an unforecast thunderstorm this arvo; 13mm of rain, hail, thunder, lightning…the dog was beside himself. I managed to divert him with games and treats to some extent. I must remember this for the future. The thunder was closer than is pleasant. Oh, what a surprise after a lovely sunny morning.

          I don’t know if it’s Orcon, but I have had trouble getting into YNZ and other things and keep being told that there is no connection and other annoying messages. Once a this is spam message flashed up and YNZ softly and suddenly vanished away.

          • Got some nice rain Kitty. So happy for my tomatoes, courgettes and beans and assorted herbs. Just a small garden this year as I’ve so much to do otherwise. We were told to stay indoors. Yikes. Back to sunshine and roses.
            Did you get the mower sorted ?

              Yes to the mower, I hope; it has a new cord, anyway.

              The rain here would have bashed small plants out of the ground, I think. 15mm in an afternoon-and not even a whole afternoon.
