Re: What is Happening, part II

There wasn't much to see, just a tiny twinkly dot moving across the sky. We were on a dairy farm up a narrow country lane five miles out of town so there wasn't any light pollution. I just looked...

Re: New MoM playground?

I heard a different version of the story today during a tribute programme on the radio. According to them he'd had the nickname since he was a baby. Can't say whether that's true or not.

Re: What is Happening, part II

I can remember climbing through a neighbour's farm hedge to find a place with a clear view of the Sputnik I as it went over, probably with my grandmother, because she was the one who was always...

Re: What is Happening, part II

I'm OK, but that one freaked me out for a bit. It was reported all over New Zealand, which is unusual. Fortunately this house stands up to earthquakes well, it's very solid. We're sitting on top...

Re: What is Happening, part II

They'd scarper. Or you'd hear about it. What's been happening here is a 5.8 earthquake just before midnight. Noisy affair, rattled all my sash windows and the desk I was working at. Classified as...

Re: What is Happening, part II

My tree isn't a tree, so it stays up all year in a dark landing near the top of my stairwell. This year I had the "tree" but only three decorations, because I'd spent a week back in Tauranga for my...

Re: Zel's Automotive Antics & Occasional Distractions.

Just one question - is that dropped floor in the back part of the wheelchair adaptation? It looks as if you've got enough head height to make a couple of drop-in storage trays to make a level floor....

Re: Zel's Automotive Antics & Occasional Distractions.

You didn't think of golf caddy? According to Wikipedia it's a small van and was never marketed in the US under that name.

Re: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all, very quiet here, except for the ***** who decided to let off firecrackers at 4am. No civic fireworks show, but there may be one for the Chinese New Year, which is usually the...

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!

While there are Pern facebook pages, you can't follow a thread on a particular subject easily and it's near impossible to find past conversations. I much prefer the bulletin board format.

Re: Why don't Golds and their riders train with the other Weyrlings?

Another thought that comes to me is that queens, as egg-layers, might have different proportions to the fighting dragons, so would need different flying instructions. In weyrs with more than one...

It seems it is the season for losing parents. My mother slipped away peacefully last night. At 96 and almost completely blind, I'm sure she'll be pleased to be earning her wings. One of my sisters...
