Did a bit of extra distance on the commute home the other day and continued on through Penguin and onto Ulverstone. There's no pathway for that section of the old coast road but it's reasonably quiet. A car came up behind me on a twisty, hilly section and sat behind be because you can't see what's coming to pass safely. A few hundred meters up the road I was able to pull over into a lookout area to let him past. The guy passed me and gave me a friendly wave and smile and I did the same. Simple as that!
This is how it should always be. Consideration from the car driver and the bike rider and everyone is happy.
@Haakon I think it's time you moved north.......

I missed that one - I killed a couple of hours there on Saturday before flying home.

Fuck that arsehole. I hope she has to buy it for a ridiculous cost to hide it from people. Personally I think it is a very flattering image of her. She is a much uglier person than the painting portrays.



Side note - the article mentions the NGA acquisition of a Jackson Pollock artwork in the early 70s. There has recently been chatter about his fame springing from a CIA propoganda/psyop to confuse the commies.

Being I don't drive I am generally neutral to parking officers (or whatever they're called), except for good Friday 2023 when a lady came for an afternoon visit and during the 15 or so seconds of frantic passion one of the vultures fined her for being parked on my driveway. But today! So many of these jer...pel1ople are parking and not following the appropriate signage while also being impolite about having to walk a short distance that it filled me with great joy to watch the vultures swoop on their cars ell issu×e many an infringement notice. It looked to be around 85% of the row of 25 cars took the hit. Evil laughs here.

People are so lazy. It's like they have had their legs chopped of if they can't park directly out in front of the place they want to go. :rolleyes:

I have a right to park here!!!
You are from Newcastle aren't you.
Chatgpt just solved your problem.

In the bustling streets of Newcastle, Safreek, the towering, muscular guardian with a keen mind, teamed up with his loyal companion, Burt, the mighty war dog. Together, they embarked on a noble quest to enforce parking laws, especially against those who parked illegally without consideration, particularly those with no legs.
Their vigilante pursuits caught the attention of the authorities, but rather than facing punishment themselves, Safreek and Burt became local heroes. Instead, those who illegally parked their cars, particularly those who were able-bodied but chose to disregard the rules, faced a unique form of retribution.
These lawbreakers were strapped to rollerblades, their vehicles confiscated, and escorted to the apocalyptic wasteland, a punishment zone for those who dared challenge the parking enforcers. There, they were confronted by giant parking inspectors, imposing figures towering over them like guardians of order.
The lawbreakers, now strapped to rollerblades themselves, were tasked with the impossible challenge of reverse parking between these colossal figures. Their former arrogance and disregard for the law turned to fear as they struggled to maneuver their rollerblades in the unforgiving terrain.
Safreek and Burt watched from a distance, ensuring that justice was served. With each failed attempt, the lawbreakers faced the consequences of their actions, learning the hard way the importance of respecting the rules of the road.
As Safreek and Burt resumed their patrols in the streets of Newcastle, they knew that their efforts had not only upheld the law but also served as a reminder to all that no one was above it. And with each passing day, the streets became safer, thanks to the vigilant watch of Safreek, Burt, and their unconventional methods of enforcement.

Been working in the garden still and decided I did not like the way it was going, things were too tall making it look overcrowded. Chatted to the eldest daughter’s partner about what I had in mind and if I was to cut some of the sleeper posts if he could weld up the corner ones to stop them from coming apart. Tonight he turns up to pick my granddaughter, grabs the welder off the back of the ute and goes “what did you want and where?”
He a damn good welder and goes the extra step even for my garden beds still taking pride in his work and what does he want in return?

Nothing, oh he asked for a drink before he left, he may be a 6ft ranga covered in tatts who looks rough as guts, but hey I’m no oil painting either (okay, maybe a bit better than Gina’s) but he doesn’t expect anything in return.

I will repay him with some beverages from work but at least it’s not “Yeah I’ll do it, but it’s gonna cost ya”
