You do make it hard for yourself KM.

I had a mate who's father used to inseminate his own herd. Apparently dairy farming is very hard work.

I always found it odd, how there would be a line of heifers coming out of the master bedroom though. I'm not sure if he was doing it quite right?

AJO look what is in my workshop.   A 1:24 scale radio controlled version of her, complete with twin drives with feathering propellers. Even the steering wheel works. Th

I know several of the people involved in this Auckland cluster. Covid test results in 30 hours.  People have got slack in level 1. Every business is still required to display a code. Even though

Its not hard to get the results if you give a sh*t. Takes less than 3 mins. Just phone your GP. Me and the missus got tested Friday night. My result was back by text 8:30 this morning, so 36 hrs

that is a true work of art - yes, how about a new thread for it? 

I'd sign up to crew except for being too grandiose - 6'3" and 210 Imperial pounds of left wing fightin' fury. 

The story of the original Chasseur  - - 

"One of the most famous of the American privateers, Captain Thomas Boyle sailed Chasseur out of Baltimore's waterfront historic neighborhood of Fells Point, where she had been launched from Thomas Kemp's shipyard in 1812. On his first voyage as master of Chasseur in 1814, Boyle sailed east to the British Isles, where he harassed British shipping and sent a notice to King George III by way of a captured merchant vessel declaring that the entire British Isles were under naval blockade by Chasseur alone. Despite its implausibility, this boast caused the British Admiralty to recall many warships of the Royal Navy back to the home waters from the Napoleonic Wars in Europe and more intense real blockade on the American east coast to guard merchant shipping in convoys." 

Actually the Brits captured far more US ships than the US privateers did - and they decisively won the 1812 war at sea. All US ports were blockaded by the end of the war. They don't teach us that in school !!

What better reason could there be for joining Vets For Peace ? 

Here I am re-enacting the War of 1812 sailors being drunk all the time . . . !!

Actually, its been in place snce the relevant Act of 2009.  A National Government was in power then, n'est pas?   Phase 2 (the more invasive bit that KM had his fun with) is carried out under 2017 legislation - again during the time that the low interference government who were commercially astute ran the country.

A requirement from the Septics in essence.  Of course, this is a nation that requires you to take your shoes off and have them inspected before you get on a plane, but you can carry a loaded semi-automatic weapon in public and dressed in full camo gear...

The love of theatre in the USA knows no bounds.
