Quite a lot of rain imminent over the next 5 days here in Chch according to the NIWA forecast... quite happy about that!

The sourdough starter's been getting a workout. Going into guerilla baker mode... Batch rising now.

Essential watching for anyone even vaguely interested in "IP", particularly Copyright.

My lock down fitness solution. Suspect my boys will want turns, too.

Oooo - my yoga mat just got delivered! Home fitness sorted.

I predict muck raking, insult slinging, and localised sneezing all around.

Can't help wondering if, thanks to Covid-19 we might rushing headlong towards a day of reckoning... virtual societies of cat people vs dog people...

Whoops, not sure where "David be" came from must be a autocorrect artefact I didn't notice until too late... Should've been "One of"... Doh.

David be of the coolest features of our new house is this "hound nook", somewhat reminiscent of Harry Potter, but hopefully less psychologically scarring for its occupant...

In all fairness to Microsoft, every proprietary product from Facebook, Apple, Adobe, Slack, Twitter, Amazon, etc. is subject to a similarly obtuse and impenetrable thicket of words. These are designed to completely disempower you.

NZ Schools - given that there don't seem to have been any contingency plans for schools to go online, my suggestion is not to rush into committing to Google this or Microsoft that, or Zoom or SeeSaw the other. You need to understand the implications, and currently you clearly don''t.

The word quarantine comes from quarantena, meaning "forty days", designating the period that all ships were required to be isolated before passengers and crew could go ashore during the Black Death plague epidemic.

It followed the trentino, a thirty-day isolation period.

Our various vent covers (e.g. for kitchen and bathroom fans) are going like the clappers!

Holy Toledo - it's blowing a gale like I haven't seen before in Chch right now! House is shaking.

Grateful that our country has sane and compassionate leadership at this moment
