  • i had to get up as i couldnt jusitfy laying in bed anymore even tho it is still dark. so i am up now! i should get my trainers on too but i will be hopping about on one leg. it looks less swollen today so we shall see too!!! i havent heard of John Galt either. i always find it bizzare that we need to get the million bux in unmarked notes before we can go live a simple life somewhere in the boonies without power. note i am studiously ignoring the biscotti comments. am over the GF bread and feel quite sick LOL how is the hammy now doc?

      I guess you don't really need the money... but it does provide for a bit of "security"... as it were... There are some "comforts" that I don't want to live without.... like a refridgerator... or a freezer, which requires money to either pay the power bill or to buy the power generating capacity (wind turbines, solar power panels, power inverters, batteries etc) THough barter works too... if you have what the other person wants.... if not no trade. Money is just the universal trade good.
      Hammies feel much better than earlier. Have walked a bit, pushed a seed planter a little, so I haven't locked up, which will be bad. I may take a muscle relaxer before I go to bed just in case....

      • i always say running hot water is civilisation as i have lived without that when we built the last house. i did used to like laying in the bath at night outside with my candle in a jar reading my book. i also missed being able to turn a tap on and get hot water very badly. i do prefer defrosted fresh venison to salt preserved venison and i have tried it. corned venison instead of corned beef i mean. not that i mind it either. but yeah. preserving flesh is something we dont usually think about and always assume we can have fresh meat. still if i could get a huge piece of land and have to do without power, i poss would just do it.

          • LMAO some of the tracks into the bush here have been asphalted for the yanks so as they dont get their tennis shoes dirty. not too many tracks but there are a couple. we came across an asphalted short track thru the bush to a rather spectacular waterfall over the haast pass when we were there last. was a very strange thing. and i never even knew hotels put mints on your pillow?!!!

              Damn tourists!

              Some hotels put mints on your pillow, but not all of them do... the fancy-schmansy ones do.... most of the hotels I have been to charge by the hour and you have to bring your own sheets... just kidding!!!

                • 2 funny. last time i was in a motel, was when we went skiing in september last year. no mints but it was awesome fun. but yeah dammed tourists! they wander around my beach and get under my feet. prime tourist season right now too. some of the foreigners who move here are as annoying. same i guess with everything tho. people are just people as some of the people who already live here can be equally annoying and some of the foreigners are fine! life is always about balance.

                      If you get whiskey'd up and get schnockered, you won't mind so much.... then your head will hurt more than your ankle! Have a good rest/sulk!

                          • well actual. ho hum. i didnt go for a walk anyways as it pissed with rain real bad when i had gotten to the stage of wanting to go more than i felt like i should rest. i reckoned if i got spotted out in my shorts limping around in a freezing cold torrential downpour, it would be way too visible crazy. so i stayed home. i've been crabby ever since. dinner was horrid. the kids are misbehaving. nothing is right. thankfully i found some bourbon so i put it in my coffee and put the whole lot in so now my coffee is horrid too LOL roll on tomorrow. gym day so i can at least feel like i am doing something strenuous. i have done some body weight stuff today and a bit of clubbelling not to mention a few chin ups into the cobwebs on my leanto roof. wrecked my hair LOL right now i have my foot up with some heat on it. i have decided that makes it feel better than the ice pack does. mind you the bourbon helps too! how is the hammy doc? any better yet?
