    Does this count for what I did to my car or house?
    Started making the new car gate. Gonna be a 5m one. 3 doors. 2 that fold in on them self.
    Got the 25×50 cut to size. Just gotta weld it together. But total fire ban will prevent me doing this tomorrow...

    After socialising and being nice to people all day it’s nice to sit down, drink by myself, and be an asshole on the Internet.

    Been watching the neighbours with interest (and trepidation) the last few days.....

    New years day they came home with a whole lot of pool type fencing and started putting it up around the deck at the rear or the house. Figured they were putting in a spa pool or something similar, why else would you put up a 1.5m high fence with child proof type gate? Thought it was a neat idea, I like spa pools but then the thought of seeing the neighbours in togs is kinda scary (he already does his manly impression walking around without a shirt on) as they aren't exactly spring chickens any more.

    Anyway, for 2 days he worked diligently putting up his pool fence, he worked, she watched (or more likely supervised) and when it was all done they re-arranged the deck furniture and planters but still no pool......

    Today the reason became more apparent, it's just a child proof fence to keep their grand child fenced in and even then he's never let out of sight. The bloody deck is less than a meter high and surrounded by grass......

    Relieved and yet disappointed :hmmm:

    It may have got a weld... Still need to make a cross brace then weld on hinges. Buy a 50 by 100 steel post a slide bolt and we're in business.

    Nice! I actually don't like running so I have to force myself to do it, and I've never been much of a long distance runner :). Now I'm going to have to start running 2 - 3 times a week instead of once, and that's on top of the other training I do =/.

    5km is my maximum distance though, for my needs I don't have a reason to go any longer and I'm not interested in running marathons.

    Thanks mate , personal belief is , that for general fitness , and for weight management , running cannot be beaten , I'm not keen on marathons either, I do other training during the week , and twice a week do the running thing .

    Yep, I totally agree with you! My primary training is a power lifting routine, but that doesn't achieve what running achieves. I think walking for long periods everyday is also very important for your general health and fitness - especially if you work at a desk job.

    One thing I do believe people neglect with running though, is short distance sprinting. So, heading down to a track or an oval, marking out 100m, and doing sets of 100, 200 or 400m at full speed for time, with rest in between. You might only fit in 5 400m runs, and it might only take 25-30 minutes with rest time, but I guarantee your next 10km run will be slightly better for it :).

    With all that said, I've also been neglecting the sprinting... but once I figure out how to fit in with my routine I'll be putting it on one of my running days.

    Brilliant.

    Nah, they're just a pack of ferals. The whole family who lives there is. I just heard them walk past after the police interviewed them, here are a few snippets of conversation:

    "I'm not the one who got stabbed" "Except in the arse"
    "I hope they don't find my bong"
    "I need to get some stuff out of the house" "You can't, mum, it's a crime scene."

    I should clarify, it's not my whole street, just the section a couple of houses up from me where it all went down.

    Nothing like an exciting night.
