When you unbend sufficiently to mow the lawn to the Greatest Hits instead of Paris, which is your standard lawnmowing album - and you find that it actually puts a spring in your step and lightens up a cold dark winter morning (so maybe I'll bookmark it for future gloomy-day lawnmowing).

In case temperate-region people are wondering why we mow lawn in winter, it's because we're in a Mediterranean climate here, where winter is a growing season while summer is dry and has 3-5 months of drought, so you won't grow anything then unless you're going to water it.

And for those who feel lawnmowing is a pointless waste of life, after considering the mild exercise benefits of it - here's an even better thing to do: Set up a permaculture system, because with permaculture you never do anything for just one reason, and you never waste anything. Lawn clippings are always useful, whether in compost or as mulch, and they're currently going on my broccoli bed to stop the hundreds of volunteer fennel seedlings progressing any further without me having to weed them out. Remember to give a bit of blood & bone to your desired plants when you're doing this to make up for the deficiencies that can be induced by the decomposition of lawn clippings - and to test whether water is getting through your mulch, because fresh lawn clippings can block infiltration (be ready with your garden fork to make holes - and perhaps give your desired plants a good drink, which you'll want to do with the blood & bone anyway).

When you're lying in bed at night musing aloud, "Why am I always hungry?" fantasising about a bowl of cornflakes or a hazelnut scroll...and you immediately follow up with,"The spiderman is always hungry. Hmmm. And so is the spiderwoman, apparently."

Ended up eating both those things and hopefully that will be the end of it. For today anyway.

Because the hungry ghost tells you that it's never enough?  ;)

Ooooh, @Ulrich, that's very good!  :beaming-face

On the other hand, of course, if you're hungry and within 10 metres of a nice batch of hazelnut scrolls, why not just say yes?  :winking_tongue

That argument would be even more valid if you had access to some fresh Brezen. Especially with butter on them.  :yum:

You can go down the road and get those anytime you like, just like we can get sausage rolls down the road anytime we like. The problem is, sausage rolls aren't nearly as nice as Brezen, not even very good ones that aren't filled with sawdust and pig fat. Ever seen a sausage roll? In cross-section they look exactly like your arteries will after 20 years of featuring those things in your diet on a regular basis.  :-D

I'm struggling to come up with a Cure song title to sum up THAT particular predicament. There is no if - and statistically more rapidly so if you eat junk? ⚰️💡⏰

When your husband is suspicious of your ability to navigate along a pathless section of ridgetop on a bushwalk and starts impudently playing air guitar at your person and informing you that the track is Watching Me Fall.



 :P

Doubting Thomas that he is. We found our way across to the official track very quickly and nobody fell off a cliff. If you want to see how high up we were you can check out our forum's Happy today because... thread here.

When you take a picture of your new cross-country hiking shoes you bought because you got screaming feet wearing your mountain boots for anything over 14km...



...and your husband says, "I've been looking so long at my pictures of shoes that I almost believe that they're real."  :yum: 

Tragic case that he is.  :beaming-face

PS: I thought there was some added semantic hilarity to Brett's little line appropriation in the last post, because in the original line "they" means "the pictures" but with the re-write, and the singular/plural swap from the original, it implies that the person saying the words almost believes that the shoes are real... ah, the English language...

...when you think this cartoon is cute, and when you go, "That stick man actually looks uncannily like Roger O'Donnell!"

It's something about the upright posture, the hair, the serious expression, and elbows held behind the body.

Jason Cooper is in the wrong spot on stage though, and Brett reckons Simon Gallup should be on the right, but I'm buying it because he often gallivants all over the stage and goes to jam with other people with guitars. Speaking of, is that Reeves Gabrels with a toupee? Also, the pink versus purple guitars gave me cognitive dissonance. I was expecting Simon Gallup to have the pink guitar, but if you look at the body language, plus the greater abundance of hair, he's clearly the one with the purple guitar.

I found this on https://twitter.com/curefans - which I occasionally look at and which often has interesting links on all sorts of stuff.  :smth023

Due to technical ineptitude, I was unable to embed it here. It wouldn't show up as an image and the tweet wouldn't embed for me. So I gave up and posted straight links.

... you think that football stadiums should actually resound with the bass line of Subway Song instead of Seven Nation Army.
