It's just after 5am, and here I am getting ready for work. I'm about to hop on my trusty TLS, and ride 100k's to work. It's about 5c outside, with a wind chill of zero; there's snow on the hills, and it is pissing down, for a change:laugh. I'm just having a last coffee, typing this in front of a roaring fire.....I must be mad, leaving this for the pitch black wet cold and windy miserable weather outside:coocoo. If I didn't have a wife and a four year old son to support (he's just informed me that when he's 5 he wants a CR50, or equivalent:)), I'd crawl back into bed and and say FTW....but I have a lovely wife, and an awesome 4 1/2 yearold boy, who rely on me to keep them fed and clothed. (not quite, darling wifey has two part-time jobs, and runs her own on-line business:hail; and still finds time to cook and clean and look after two kids...:dowhat). Oh well, now that's off my chest, I'll see you on the flipside...ciao for now, yours in motorcycle madness, TLJimmy:).

From one Jimmy to another, I can only offer this: You will be rewarded in the kingdom of heaven (or the heaven of your choice) for your efforts here on earth!

I r pissed orf. I got halfway to work, stopped for gas and checked my messages. The guy my mate and I are building the house for is trying to wriggle out of his deal with us to build it. It's a specialist building material -Hebel - and we're two of a handful of people who are qualified to build with it in the region. His son who has been helping us is also a builder - and he's working for $200 per week:dowhat; as opposed to our tradesmans rates. He now thinks his son knows enough to carry on without us, and is wriggling and trying to put us off....they wiil get a shock when they get to the lintels and bond beams - though he seems to think he'll be able to phone us for advice when they get stuck:laugh. It'll be at consultant rates:devious.

Sooo, i rode 50k's out, in the rain, to get gas, then rode home:lol So I'm now off to build a fence for someone:).

I have a coupla houses in the pipeline - but the bullshit paperwork, consents etc take nearly as long as the actual building:O, so I may have to go back to cutting down trees in the forestry; except I see timber useage is down 40 something %, and mill/bush workers are finding it tough too. This is now probably in the wrong forum.....I'm pretty confident I can get ork though - there aren't many qualified and experienced tree fellers out there; apparently it is too dangerous to teach on the Polytech courses:laugh:)
