“Every bad thing that’s happened to me has defined me, has shaped, has moulded me.” – Natalia Kills

I seem to be experiencing some issues with my site.  I believe it occurred during an attempt to change aspects of the blog, combined with installing a new hard drive.  I am in the process of attempting to correct this, yet it appears I have lost all posts from November and December.  I will try Read more about “Every bad thing that’s happened to me has defined me, has shaped, has moulded me.” – Natalia Kills[…]

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius

Looking back at my last few posts I realise I forgot to mention that the chicks I had in the incubator hatched.  I placed 12 within the machine and all 12 hatched.  That is a very impressive result as far as I am concerned and I feel that I can recommend the machine to people.  Read more about “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius[…]

“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” – James Cash Penney

I had noticed that the 100 or so tomato seeds I planted were not germinating in the greenhouse, in contrast to the other seeds that had shown great progress.  These seeds were from Southern Harvest, a company which I have had many problems with in the past.  Nearly every time I have had seeds fail, Read more about “Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” – James Cash Penney[…]

“If you have stage fright, it never goes away. But then I wonder: is the key to that magical performance because of the fear?” – Stevie Nicks

It seems that every time I have a large project on the cards, I get injured or sick. I just mentioned in my last post that I have the large project of converting my workshop/laundry into a studio apartment for my mother-in-law. I have almost completed the work I have to do on the project, Read more about “If you have stage fright, it never goes away.

“Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.” – LL Cool J

Over the last week or so, Kitty and I have been very busy  working on a special project.  One that I wanted to wait until we had made some progress on before I revealed it to you all. Several years ago, Kitty’s mother lived with us in our Collinsvale home.  She moved out some time Read more about “Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.” – LL Cool J[…]

“Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.” – Theodore Roosevelt

A little while ago, while driving to work on a dark, freezing cold, Tasmanian morning, I experienced a little car trouble.  As I drove I noticed that the car was not handling as it normally did and it felt a little unresponsive.  I suspected that my steering fluid might be a little low and I Read more about “Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.” – Theodore Roosevelt[…]

“Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.” Voltaire

I have been recently contact by a member of the media, asking if she could discuss Prepping with me for some research.  I was originally a little suspicious and stand offish about talking to anyone from the media.  I have watched the show Doomsday Preppers (as I am sure many of you have) and I Read more about “Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.” Voltaire[…]
