Nice ways to cheat in WordPress

One of the things I’ve really found helpful since blogging with WordPress is the way you can write a post and then backdate it however you like. It’s usually possible in other blog software as well, but WordPress, as always, makes it easier. But damn, things are getting hectic and frustrating during the week, at ...

Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all, especially to the mothers, of course, and especially to my mother, who’s much of the reason I’m here, and to my wife, who’s much of the reason I continue to be here 🙂 And Will and Alex appreciate their mother more than anyone, naturally.

Is this blogging while drunk?

Probably not, no. It’s more likely “blogging while extremely tired, probably exhausted, and slightly tipsy”. I’m not much of a boozer, I admit it. Watched the league test tonight at the League’s Club with my brother and a couple of his matest tonight. Drinks were cheap, food was cheap too (thankfully), and the whole night ...

How do I do it?

I’m starting to wonder if I really have a clue anymore. How do I get up quite early, commute quite a distance, work a full day on the day job, commute some more, spend time with my kids, spend time with my wife, eat (and cook most of the time), then have some time to ...

It’s just too late

Read on 37 Signals blog today about their thoughts on sleep deprivation, lack of sleep, and generally the good reasons to get a good night sleep. And I agreed with all of it, in a practical sense. But … (And there’s always a but) … it seems like advice that, while obviously true, will work ...

Boys and their toys

My one-year-old son loves watching me mow the lawn. His older brother was never that excited by it, but Alex just loves it. Both today in the back, and yesterday in the front Alex was just captivated by watching me push the mower around, the loud engine and the grass flying and the smell and ...

Sun, football and back to work

It’s late so there isn’t much to say for now. Woke up in Nelson Bay, another really nice day, and we headed to the beach again. But the water was still dirty and it was surprisingly hot. We didn’t last more than a half hour before heading back to pack up and head home. Listened ...

Review: Robot Chicken Season 1 or Pop Culture geekery at crack speed 1

Miracle of miracles today … good weather! Found out today that there had been 13 days straight of rain before now, which I was also reminded coincided exactly with school holidays. But finally, today was actually pretty nice, so after the usual morning difficulties we headed to the beach. The water was kind of dirty, ...

Such a lazy, lazy day …

We drove up to Nelson Bay late last night, which was probably a bit insane, but safe enough really. It rained a lot at different times, but we got through with only one pitstop for dinner. And today was just so lazy … a public holiday for Anzac day, and it was still raining a ...

If the weather doesn’t improve …

After usually averaging at least a year between visits, we’re back to Nelson Bay this weekend with only a month’s gap since the last trip. It’s a three day weekend, so should be a good relaxing time. Except, the weather is still nightmarish, possibly worse now than earlier in the week. Who can I blame ...
