The 8.5's are calling it a nationals, with 2 boats back on the water that haven't been seen much for the last couple of years, and the regular visitor from Tauranga

 

Unfortunately a couple of regulars are MIA due to babies, weddings etc - I think they need to get their priorities sorted out ;)

 

Be interesting to see how raucous the beach party gets on Saturday night, and how many boats are still there Sunday morning!

Since wages is plural that should be the wages of sin ARE death.

Speaking of the happy new year, I wonder if any year ever had less chance of being happy. It’s as though the whole race were indulging in a kind of species introversion — as though we looked inward on our neuroses. And the thing we see isn’t very pretty… So we go into this happy new year, knowing that our species has learned nothing, can, as a race, learn nothing — that the experience of ten thousand years has made no impression on the instincts of the million years that preceded. Steinbeck

grammarphobe have your answer - in ancient usage "wages" could be singular

 

The Oxford English Dictionary has published references from the late 1300s to the 1700s of the plural noun (wages) construed as singular.

 

...the 1395 revision of the Wycliffe Bible of 1382:

 

The wagis of synne is deth.”

 

http://www.grammarph...ges-of-sin.html

 

for lexicologists

 

the above link

 

also links, wage = pledge = gage - mortgage = death pledge
