My Hippy'ness


Well people on this day in 1985 the first Rainbow Warrior was sunk off New Zealand. I don't agree with everything that Greenpeace do but they do have a good outlook on the things that go on in our world so good on them. There was much conspiracy about the sinking but it later came out that French intelligence sunk the ship and two agents were later charged with the murder of a photographer that drowned the night it was sunk. It seems fitting that on this day in 2006 France lost the soccer. I have nothing against France but this does confirm the age old saying, if you sink a Greenpeace ship and kill a guy then 21 years later you will lose the world cup final. Also good on Roger Federer for winning Wimbledon Nadal had no chance.
Well now the headlines are out of the way I can tell you I am absolutely rooted. I worked this morning pouring concrete and it was tough. I wheel barrowed 4.8 cubic meters of concrete into a footing inside a house and it was a long morning. Concrete ways 2.25 tonnes per cubic meter so go on and get your calculator out and believe me it equals HARD work. So now I'm just sitting down and relaxing while I drink green tea. Have fun now.
Bye

Speaking of beer, I now have enough money tucked away (in a sock)* to get a bar fridge and several cartons of whatever when we move into the new house.

*It's not in a sock.
