What Made You Happy today?

Is this rugby we are talkin' about?

Oh...and happy anniversary you lovebirds!

Cheers mate.

Rugby League - very distinct from Rugby Union (commonly referred to as "Rugby") which is the more traditional international game played on most continents. Rugby League is more Aus, NZ and Pacific Islands, and England. (although there is a "world cup" - it's not really a world sport). Rugby league doesn't have the massive scrums that union have, and no throw in from the side lines. Union also doesn't have a tackle, and play the ball. Rugby League is easily the more entertaining game (in my view). It's the one thing I hate about summer, no NRL (National Rugby League). It's also the saving grace of winter - I hate the cold....

I highly recommend to all to check out State of Origin as a great sporting rivalry. It's as good as any you will find. Started in 1980. There are plenty of fun clips about it on ytube.

Yes, love TP but have not watched Season 3 yet. Planning on binging the whole season over the Christmas holiday 🙂 

You're in for a ride!

Go in with no expectations.  It requires a second watch, or 3rd or....🙂

The correct way to watch is 

Season 1

Season 2

Fire, walk with me

Season 3

Enjoy!

I remember seeing Fire Walk with Me when it first came out. Great movie. I have it on DVD. The cabin scene is worth the price alone.

Finished the 9th and last window today. Now I just have to scrape and clean up the edges. Started on the door bathroom door frame to give it the same color.

Painting the outside of window frames was something I used to groan about when they needed doing. Eight years ago I had all my windows and doors replaced with double glazed all white PVC frames, it cost a fair few quid but it was well worth it. All white, the only maintainence  they need is  wipe down with soapy water now and again.

The ones I just finished are all inside. I'll start on the outside next year. It's going to be a lot of work. Keeps me busy. :)

Wow! That's beautiful.

It had some structural problems, but the buyer didn't care.

Today I was able to get into my 34 inch waist denim's. It's been many moons since that happened. :)

34" is good, congradulations! Just don't take it too far and go for the Jimmy Page, 1977 look :P

Thanks. Probably never happen getting that skinny. If I can drop 10 more pounds, that would be it.

Yes. I am hoping she may be able to take it apart to repair it (she said she does some luthier work), but the luthier I sent it to to have the fret board redone said he believes it should be ok. Thanks. It's a good feeling to shed the poundage. Damned sugar and carbs is what causes me to gain. 

 
Don't want to be a fat man
People would think that I was just good fun, man
Would rather be a thin man
I am so glad to go on being one, man
Too much to carry around with you
No chance of finding a woman, who
Will love you in the morning and all the nighttime too
Don't want to be a fat man
Have not the patience to ignore all that
Hate to admit to myself
I thought my problems came from being fat
Won't waste my time feeling sorry for him
I've seen the other side to being thin
Roll us both down a mountain and I'm sure the fat man would win
