A friend of ours who works for a tow truck company decided to fill his time waiting for an accident to happen by sending his pals updates on traffic and other important traffic info. By other important info I mean the really important stuff, you know? Like where the speed cameras and road blocks are.
He also considers himself a bit of a comedian, here’s a sample from recent broadcasts… Read more…
They never quite look the same with the roof on, do they?
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, returned to earth yesterday after almost five months in orbit, he posted this music video (NASA claim the first ever made in space) the day before his return. This is really really cool! (CBC report here)
What a difference a week makes!
After last week’s humiliation at the hands of those Aussie Warratahs my Kings hosted the Highlanders this weekend, a team packed with All Blacks and boosted with the confidence of a victory just last week against the Sharks, but more about that later.
Remember my “Super season tickets” post back in February? The one where I explained that a local bar had 2 ‘royalty package’ season tickets to hand out as prizes for all home game? Guess who won them this week? Ha ha I can hear you all laughing, of course it was me!
Now as you know, I go to the games anyway, we always have great seats but these? These are special, plus the facilities which were still being constructed during my first visit (bar, restaurant, lounge, flat screen tv’s, big screen etc.) are now all in place. It really is a magnificent (royal (?)) way to watch rugby, or any sport for that matter.
So how did my Kings do this week?
Most here aren’t going to believe me but I assure you that I’m telling the truth we WON!
Not just any old win but a win with a bonus point for four tries. Read more…
Have I mentioned how much I’m enjoying this year’s Super Rugby season?
As mentioned elsewhere, it was the turn of the New South Wales Waratahs to visit our shores. Our Kings have had a good record against Australian teams this year, in fact all 15 of our log points have come against Aussie opposition. (Wins against the Perth based Western Force and Melbourne Rebels and of course that last gasp draw against The ACT Brumbies)
Hopes were high, well mine were, for all of 30 seconds that is, for that is just how long it took for this Aussie outfit to score their first try!
After that? Believe it or not it got worse, they ran in try after try and for all of the first half consistently had more points on the board than minutes passed! Men against boys I kept thinking, it was really really difficult to watch. As a life long Eastern Province supporter (a team who’ve never won any top flight competition) I’m sort of used to losing, this wasn’t just ‘losing’ this was ‘annihilation!’
It wasn’t all doom and gloom, our new darling of E.P.rugby Sergeal Petersen got us out of our seats with a brilliant try just before half time, but I’m afraid that was all my Kings had to offer.
I probably see them every day and thought a picture would be a suitable entry for the current photo competition
Here’s Google’s doodle, can’t find any white faces
It is not that difficult. Declare a no fly zone, stick the drones up, I’m afraid that the use of chemical weapons has to be dealt with and dealt with severely.
Oh! Hang on, let’s wait for a directive from the UN
It’s midnight, just made myself a cup of tea and found this apple crumble tartlet in the breadbin, Thirty seconds in the microwave … …
Mmmmm mmmmm delicious
(Oops, that ‘enjoy’ bit wasn’t for you but for me, I did )
