even got a win up over the mother inlaw, she hates sport.
She decided at the 30min mark that boney jr and I shouldn't be sitting in the media room watching the footy so had a meltdown that the TV had to go off and that no sport gets watched in her house, I calmly grabbed the car keys and my phone to go watch in the car kids started following me she burst into tears took off for the bedroom, father inlaw called her an idiot and the footy stayed on.
She apologised, sort of, about 2hrs later but the kids and I turned in early avoiding the frosty atmosphere.

I reckon Mrs.bonehead should get involved too, but probably trying to find out what’s going on for her.

Unless that’s completely normal for her, sounds like crying out for attention?

I imagine walking in, finding you on top of and squatting over the top loader is a mental image that is difficult to shake.

Yeah same. I prefer Mrs Fui’s family than most of my own.

Once is a mistake.

Twice is a coincidence.

Three times is a clear pattern of behaviour.

mental note, gh seems to frown on top load download.

Up until the last year or 2 I've got on famously with the dragonlady but I dunno what's going on with her mental health. Father inlaw I would count in my closest circle of mates, best inlaw you could ask for, fantastic grandparent to my kids.

Botman just made me realise December will be a mini-milestone for me. It will mark me living in Sydney as long as I lived in Bega.

Kind of trippy, kind of making me feel old. I still remember Day 1 of moving into this share house with nothing but a garbage bag full of clothes and my video collection, no job and only knowing one person. Three months later I discover that share house was actually a halfway house for released cons, and I felt it was time to go.

To think I've gone from there to owning my own place, finding Mrs Fui, and working in the area I am, it's been a bit of an adventure

Life certainly flies by Fui.

Live it..enjoy it.

With the footy season over this thread will ramp up I reckon.

I've got a summer of pure, unfiltered dribble to spill.

Stout’s done. This is easily the best I’ve made. I added different Hops and Grains to this one, and you can tell. This is the first beer I’ve done that has a bit of a profile.

Ready for the Fui original recipes now

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.

I had a great time up at Port Macquarie for the Raiders' trial early in the year. Beautiful places all along the coast. Didn't get up there. But went on a number of day trips as far down as Laurieton. Send us some pics!

Well tomorrow the family holiday in the Macleay Vally is over and we're heading back to 2284. We've had a great time up here. The NSW north coast is just beautiful, along with the scantly dressed women..ha.

We've been staying at Cresent Head. It's a fantastic spot. For those of you who've been to the beach here you'll know what I'm talking about when I mention the inland river that is fed directly from the ocean. A sand bar seperates the surf from the salt water paradise where kids can roam free without being taken by a GWS. At high tide the waves crash over the sandbar and cause a tidal surge of saltwater, it's quite strong.

We've been to Port Mac at least 3 times this week. I love Port. It's awesome. We visited the Billabong Zoo and Koala sanctuary. I highly recommend a visit to this zoo. I had a snake encounter..they wrap a python around my neck. Snow Leopards, African Lion, Cheetahs and the reptiles.

There's a salty there, his name is Shreik. Hes 5.5m long. He wasn't doing much when we saw him. Just laying there doing squat. Dangling a toddler over the fence didn't seem to excite him either.

Kempsey is only 30 clicks away. Had the best serving of garlic prawns there yesterday for lunch. I'm not kidding..it was very neat. I've been doing the majority of the driving up and down the Pacific Hwy all week but yesterday at Kempsey RSL at massive storm came thru and we were stranded at the club after lunch.

So I drank beer..all afternoon knowing MrsPJ could handle the driving back to the holiday apartment. She's a good driver but I don't want to put too much pressure on her. Trying not to tuck into too much takeaway. It's tough on holiday. No one wants to cook a lot but there's a IGA in Cresent Head with everything we need food wise..expensive though..they don't miss ya.

Visited Laurieton, Bonny Hills, Lake Cathie( the local footy team are the Raiders), Kew, South West Rocks as well. We've had a great time. Done plenty of nothing which is ideal.

Cheers..

Having a bit of a mad scientist day in the 2765. This is my latest concoction, which is my 1st original recipe I’ve made. Calling it the Old Fashioned. It should come out a Bourbon and Orange flavoured Pilsner

Another 2 hours cooked wrapped up, and it’s ready for pulling
