ZenTiger Friday Night Free For All

Egads. All is quiet on this Friday night. I'll kick off the thread and visitors are welcome to chat about what ever, why ever and when ever. I'm going out to a cafe for a nice dinner. Back late(r)

right back at you.
Just come in from the estate, have mowed the lawns, fed the pineapples, trimmed a few palms and have inhaled 3 rum and cokes in time for a good nights sleeep before we take ss pugwash out in the morning to watch the canterbury sink.

Sounds like the life of Riley, Barnsley.

Ah, a nice explosion. Right time of year and all that!

Barnsley Bill said...

No fireworks up here until sunday night scrub, the 10 or so smallholdings in our patch get together and the men pool all the explosives for a really big one.
Mojo, pineapples are like a cross between a chainsaw and an angry croc they fair jump out at you when you get within 3 metres of them. There is always a price to pay for living out of reach of the Beast and her revenue squad.

mojo said...

Yep ... it's been going on down the river for quite some time... thought it was a shot gun initially ... coloured lights heading towards each other with associated whooshes and bangs.

mojo said...

Sounds like you live on one of those Ohu type thingamys, Barnsley.
& what's the story with our beloved 'bare bax' media chapiesse ... seems a bit confused about more than a few things.
Sorry it was the cross between 'crocs' and 'shit' that brought this to mind, not chainsaws.
... mind you I have a high revving husqvarna limbing saw that has gone on and on, like fifteen years, and is still eager for more ... and light enuf to throw around with consummate ease.

I had lunch with FFM a few weeks ago, marvelous chap. By the content of his recent posts I would say he has had a tough couple of weeks with a mate who is a walking disaster and very highly strung. We all have periods in our lives where everything turns to custard. I look forward to him taking a couple of "harden the fuck up" pills and getting back to his witty, incisive and well thought out posts that make mere mortal bloggers like me sick with envy.

mojo said...

There is indeed, perhaps, a tad of integrity in the recanting ... but he's sort of nailed his boxers to the mast there hasn't he? A rather emotionally frought 'coming out?'

Barnsley Bill said...

Out or in, what is your point?
As i mentioned earlier we had lunch a few weeks ago and I felt perfectly safe. Now i am absolutely and completely gods gift. All women want me and all men want to be me. If indeed FFM is as you seem to be suggesting out then i should not worry too much. If he managed to keep his hands of me at lunch then you are unlikely to be "infected" reading his posts.....

rofl!
I have a few gay friends of both sexes and there appears to be no sign of infection yet.

Barnsley Bill said...

He has made a very big deal of FFM's post on his own blog. Perhaps the cupboard door has a dodgy latch in mojo world?

mojo said...

It's all to do with allure barnsley ... 'a thing of beauty is a joy to behold.'

KG said...

On a different subject, there's some publicity being given at last to Labour's economic record when they were in government in Oz.
18% interest rates and 11+% unemployement...
Hard to imagine the voters wanting to go back to that, surely?

Barnsley Bill said...

I hope Howard manages to get back in, the last thing I want is labour in charge of the life boat.

KG said...

*shudders*

mojo said...

& Alan Jones back in charge of the wallabies ... probably a few wanting to go back to that.

KG said...

The lefties are consumers, not creators. Hell, even their beloved arts types rely on others to make the money they so casually fritter away.

KG said...

Dunno, mojo--we Aussies don't regard rugby with the same degree of fanaticism as Kiwis do.
We have other kinds of football, after all. ;-)

mojo said...

Aha, & with equal fanaticism i believe. I have a kid living in the 'out back,' under 1000 population town and floodlit aussie rules field .. and they pay the players for scoring ... reportedly they're not too happy about rugby tackles though.

KG said...

lol! Sounds about right. None of it interests me much though, which makes me something of an oddball in some communities.
I'm looking forward to getting back home--NZ has been a huge disappointment this time round.Same fine individuals, same beautiful country--but a society that's become something I just can't live with.

KG said...

The pillows are calling after a hard day. 'Night BB and Mojo and thanks for the forum Zen and Lucyna.

KG- Just wanted to say, your blog is so good. I regard it as one of the best local Conservative sites. (But the comments procedure is a bit daunting.)

KG said...

Redbaiter, thanks for the kind words.
BUT...a "daunting" comments procedure? I don't even have word verification in place!
Could you mail me and let me know if you're having problems, because I'd love to see you commenting there.

Anonymous said...

Well, perhaps daunting was the wrong word, and conveyed the wrong impression. As a matter of course, I do my browsing with scripts, java applets and ActiveX all disabled. To get to your comments section (even to read them) I have to enable all three of these features and reload the main page. After that, everything works smoothly.

Without doing it, I cannot even see your "comments" link at the foot of each post. I can usually comment on wordpress blogs (like Kiwiblog) without enabling any of these features.

So if you understand the above, you'll probably appreciate that the real problem is laziness on my part. I really should make the effort and enable and reload each time considering your excellent choice of talking points.

(The other side to this too is there's not too much point in just writing "damn right" which is what I feel in most cases:))

Lost your email due to a hard disk meltdown some time ago. Re-email me if you still have my address.

KG said...

Rats! I lost yours when I changed over to the Mac.
The offer of a writing spot still stands, Redb any time you feel like it. (I always admired your comments in Kiwiblog)

I'd all but forgotten about disabling java, active-x and scripts, too. Maybe another good reason to switch over to Wordpress.

OK, I'll do that. Damn shame about Kiwiblog. Mr. Farrar (leaving aside his liberal social perspective) puts a lot of effort into his initial posts, and they're usually informative and interesting, but his good work is mostly wasted.

The leftists have taken over that site and with their usual witless and dated garbage just make each thread a struggle to read. I'm sure that a certain group of pathological leftists have an organised strategy to attack Kiwiblog and "neutralise" its popularity as a source of political comment.

Mr. Farrar has called on some buddies of his to act as moderators, but they're so damn naive and so intimidated by politically correct leftist social codes, they keep pinging people for being "offensive" whilst leaving the deliberate saboteurs to wreak havoc. ("Offensive" of course is code for getting under a leftist's skin or debunking one of their favourite myths or expressing honest contempt for their disgusting political system)

Pity really. Mr. Farrar had a damn entertaining and interesting blog going there for a while.

KG said...

It's certainly a pity about Kiwiblog. For a long time it was a must-read for me.

ZenTiger said...

An RSS aggregator may be the solution to your problem, Redbaiter. Depends if CR outputs comments in a feed too.

I haven't checked - I prefer my news direct from the site visit.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the hint Zen. I've tried them, (but not with CR)however it seemed to somehow diminish the blog experience, and I chucked it in. Like you, I prefer the site itself.
