    I tried four times first thing this morning to get on the site but it was just buffering & timing out, I've just managed to log in now.

    I haven’t been able to get in at all some of the time!

    Might create a thread to ensure it gets noticed.

    Doing farm machinery stuff the last couple of days.

    I put a thread on the "Front desk" over in MLP about the issue, not sure if it was the right place there :dunno:

    Well the old wardrobe was collected by the local council, the new (used) wardrobe that too big was collected by the guy whom my missus bought it off..........but has now got that wardrobe money burning a hole in her pocket to get another one :ohno:
    I've given her a tape measure & told her to not cock it up again lol :thumb:

    Big day yesterday!

    I had 3 separate sessions of splitting & stacking firewood (also fixed the spitter) yesterday.

    First I came in a after a couple of hours, low sugar! Second I came in with a back so bad I could hardly make it to the house. Third I finished stacking wood and had a massive low just before tea.

    However I got to where I want to be though frustrated everything is so bloody hard these days.

    I have enough wood for the year now though will cut maybe another trailerload of dry from our bush next week to make sure. Then it’s working on next winter’s wood. I like to have 2 years in advance!

    This is what I do in winter after all.

    Gonna have a quiet day today cooking a roast outside, reading a book, listening to music and maybe have a beer at lunchtime.......yeah!

    We had a decent day at the market, marred only by some inconsiderate cow who didn’t even look at our stuff stopping and watching her dog pee on one of my canopy weights, then walking away without so much as a backward glance. I dumped a bunch of water on it, and it was quite breezy, so it dried quickly enough. But some people are just clueless. And arses. Or would it be arsettes? :)

    Your property keeps you busy Digger, I've not done anything in the garden for a week, the lawns need mowing, they're growing like crazy but the ground is sodden.

    It sure does Ian but even though it’s a pressure, I love working here. I’ve been cutting my own firewood for over 40 years and you know what happens when I stop! I am luckier than most having a good supply of firewood on our own property. The only thing is it doesn’t drop itself, nor cut, transport, split or stack itself...Grin~

    However it gives me a reason to get up each day and to keep moving.

    Looking at cheap QANTAS flights to the UK tonight but most are from October to November and it will be too cold by then I suspect. Pity as they are my kind of prices...Grin~

    Worked my a$$ of today with lots of machinery hiccups but I still managed to knock over the green wood pile and turn it into firewood for next year. Still have to stack it though.

    Look at the grain on this redgum log!

    It was incredibly gnarly and almost stopped a 30 tonne hydraulic splitter!
    It would make incredible guitar bodies and does!

    This a pic of some slabs though it varies greatly.
    [​IMG]
    I don’t know why my tree was so torturous but it’s incredibly hard to split with the grain all over the place like it is.

    I’d love to take a slab off it for a chopping board.

    Here you go, this is more like it!

    WoW! Stunning grain pattern in that timber, I should imagine it's quite heavy?

    Exactly right, good for LP’s as they are pretty heavy usually.

    I managed to get into the garden and get the lawns mowed today, they've been growing like crazy lately.
    I've been re-potting yet more tomato plants and bell pepper plants into larger pots in the greenhouse ......when the missus comes in and says there's a wardrobe on it's way this afternoon, I said I hope you've got the measurements right this time :ohno:

    I managed to win a 250gB SSD drive off ebay for the princely sum of £10.50 :thumb: that will be replacing a 1TB hard drive with that damn Win 10 on which now resides in my CCTV recorder, out of arms way from annoying me :D.

    I'll be installing the latest Linux Mint 19.1 'Tessa' OS on it to use just for browsing/Kodi/forums etc.

    <sarcasm> Maybe they oughta make an SG out of it for those people who complain about neck dive. </sarcasm>

    All kidding aside, I do think an SG body in that wood would be pretty schweet. Perhaps with a roasted maple neck and a Pao Ferro fingerboard.
