    @Tim XO improves most things Have you tried the GoodChow Paua one?

    Too much shit at the bottom does glug things up when you’re bottling

    yep, however you do it you need a way to get the good beer off the trub.

    I either siphon to a bottling bucket or keg from a Fermzilla, or use the SS Brewtech Brewbucket that has a really nice offtake you can twist to maximise beer return.

    ahhh, beer.

    Speaking of which, got hands on some fresh hops and brewed a nectaron fresh hopped hazy last week with my mate. It's tasting and smelling brilliant already, even without the 500g of dried nectaron we're dry hopping with 🙂

    Round two riwaka arrives tomorrow ... an IPA I expect

    Fed some SQL in yesterday asking it to put the commas before the fields. It just gave me back the exact same SQL and said done!

    Sunset Blvd from 1950

    As good as any film that I have seen. Absolutely brilliant.

    With the greatest closing line in movie history.

    @Winger I'll ask my SIL as she has one for an overactive kelpie that used to run off into other paddocks.

    Thanks.

    The dogs are not too happy too now as they love their walk / run (and swim in the small lakes) every morning so really want to find a solution

    @MajorRage my teenage son recently spent 10 days playing cricket in Barbados. The players, coaches and parents that went were universal in their praise. Happy, friendly locals, buzzing bars and restaurants and great scenery.

    Just spent 8 days in St Lucia watching my son play cricket for 4 of them (supposed to be 5 but rain killed one day).

    Nice to be in the heat again for a while, a real joy having the opportunity to do this. They won all their matches, my son didn't play anywhere near his best (which tbh isn't that high) but he got stuck in and kept on trying. Managed to bowl the only maiden of the entire tour which I think is something he could be proud of. His last spell was crazy. Got tonked for 6 on his first ball, then bowled 4 dot balls followed by a wide. Next over the maiden. Last over he didn't get hit for runs again, but his last 2 balls were wides as he was knackered.

    Anyway got to know a few other parents a lot better (some good, some absolute English posh dickheads), drunk a few pitons, did 6 hours on the treadmill in total & had a cracking day out on a catamaran. Also ready 2 Ant Middleton motivation books as I'm struggling to get my shit together at the moment from a macro point of view, so that was good.

    Holiday for the soul, this one.

    See GOM for further thoughts.
