Little Things You Hate

Word on the street is you drink far quicker than that.
Not lately, I have dropped 5kg since mid Jan by changing nothing (kinda), still eating the same shite and drinking beers in a lesser capacity.

Mid Jan I decided on a dry feb, but it was still 13 days away... so called it '40 days & 40 nights'. Turning 50 this year and needed to shed the corona belt gained through injury, TAFE commitment and corona combined since Jan 2020.

When that finished a few weeks ago I was liking the feeling of being fresh and a little bit fitter.

So now not drinking at home at all, only when I go out socially or head to Melrose.

So rather than consuming 2 cartons a week... 6200 calories which is Coopers pale x 48 at 131 calories.

Plus my extra rides instead of getting on the piss, there is a deficit in my life of probably 10,000 calories a week and I read somewhere that 7700 equates to about a kilo of weight.

Anyhow, now on day 1 of 7 in Iso, going to get the Zwift happening each day. Was due to go to Melrose on Thursday so would have been on the beers then... maybe I can refrain from getting on the cans at home for the whole week of iso too.

If this keeps going, I'll have to drop my Zwift weight :p

When you are almost at the top of an extension ladder and you 'discover' a wasp's nest. Or should that be wasps' nest?
I gave my boys a chat a few weeks ago about 'if you don't annoy them, they won't annoy you'.

About 45 minutes later after my second unprovoked sting from our resident Paper Wasps that I have been letting thrive for a few years, I nuked all 4 of the small nests I knew that were around the house.

The guy who owns the place next to ours rents it out now but lived there for most of his life. He said that at the back corner of our (highset) house there was an impressive foot long and 10cm wide nest of 'native stingless bees' there for around 10 years. The previous owners were proud of their native insect nest.

Roll on 10 years and they got the house painted, a few months before we bought it. Turns out the painters discovered it was actually a big fuck off wasp nest, and they stung like motherfuckers.

Yeah, we had that talk too, until I had to hammer some nails into the carport rafters 2 meters from the nest......

I was happy for them to have their little 'upside-down mushroom' like nests around the place, they were harmless.

We were out dismantling some framing that was on my pergola and the fekkers had stung me and #1 son once each, my second sting was on my ear :mad: that was the last straw.

Armed with a can of fly spray and a can of surface spray, all 4 nests got both barrels... I ran away from each nest after a 5 second blast, then came back 10 mins later to finish them off.

Its a bit shitty because Paper Wasps are considered pollinators :(

You should drink more...they don't bother me!

Otherwise, just smoke them as one would with bees...they abandon ship pretty quick with no harm done.

How are you guys smoking the wasps? It's either bullshit or my technique is wrong. Last night I dried a few out and rolled a wasp joint. All it did was burn my eyes and give me a really nasty coughing fit. Now today my throat is really dry. Should I have used a water pipe?

My mate just reported $2.48 Diesel…I haven’t looked today locally. Scared to.
Dunno what the law is in Vic but in SA they have to report to a Gov body the new price within 30 mins.

The Gov website for SA says about $2.20 for prem diesel here.

Poor chunts in the UK, heat their houses with oil. They've got a double whammy.
