Some photos of our place.
Awesome fun video of our Slot car knockout!
My contribution to ford mods.
Just found this photo of when we replaced the engine in the falcon. We were working late into the night with torches because the crane had to be back to the hire place the next day.
Well, the great BBQ challenge finals were last week.
Earle and I entered. Here’s a photo of us at the auditions.
We didnt’ even make it into round 1, despite our obvious wit and talent. I still maintain it was because we were too good – it would have made it too hard for the rest of the competitors.

I just found this painting I did 3 months after my Dad died.
Death’s no friend whatever mask it wears. It breaks our fragile worlds apart and in the hearts of each of us plants grief and fear.
(a poem by Bruce Smith.)
I recently preached from John 11 where Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead. The chapter talked a lot about the emotions associated with death.
According to the Bible death is not good,
we should groan about it,
but we have hope because Jesus has defeated it.
Very good article by a lawyer.
I can’t believe the lack of info on HiACE vans.
Here’s how I changed a tailshaft in case anyone else wanted to try it.
mark well, very well.
chisel hit bearing thread before re-assembly
easier as 2 man job to help lift tail shaft.
easier in pit or on hoist.
Total time approx 2 hours. This was the first time I’ve changed a tailshaft bearing.
Why to-do lists are rarely as effective as scheduling time – a great article from Farnam St…
It’s really easy to add things to a to-do list. Because it’s so simple, these lists tend to grow and grow. Even worse they encourage us to say yes to almost everything because, well, we can just add it to our list. This means we’re not discriminating and we’re not as conscious about controlling our time as we should be. As Steve Jobs said, it’s easy to say yes but the real value comes from saying no.
It might be time to get rid of your cordless phone….
I’m not completely paranoid about EMF. I still use a mobile phone. We have fixed wireless NBN.
But I did some measurements of EMF levels around our house and it was surprising how easy it is to reduce 95% of your EMF exposure with about 5% effort.
Take a look at this graph – it says it all…
