I was belting out I’m a Believer by the Monkees last night on the way home. Mrs Fui told me to quit it, because she hates that song.

I thought she was kidding at first, but then I saw her face...

3 months ago i moved house, went from a 15yo masterton 1000m2 block 5 bedroom 3 bathroom 3 garage semi rural into an ex rental 700m2 block 4 bed 2 bathroom 2 garage in a 75% rentals estate.
Dead flat block but 200mm topsoil on clay not a plant on it. I spent the last fortnight planting natives, Banksia Ericifolia, Banksia Giant Candles, Grevillia Robyn Gordon's, Lilly Pilly resilience plus some Nandina and lavender.
Trying to get the bees back and give the birds something, there's all manner of parrots around but they just sit up on the tv aerials.
Heaps more to do, i need to box around the Banksia and plant out the rest of the front yard.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Treat yourself and get Highlands.

I actually live on an old dairy farm now (would post pictures, but defeated by technology). We will definitely get some cows, but they're all Droughtmaster/Charbray up here (actually, some Dexter, too).
