New blog, new-ish pearlers but no new bath....yet

Sadly, no rippage has yet taken place.
The toothy-pegs were over-hauled with more attention paid to them than the inches contained within Scarlet O'Hara's whalebone corset.
Tartar has been reigning unopposed; that would be the dental tartar not the Crimean Tatar and certainly don't confuse it with the Volga Tatars!
There was a minor almost completely bloodless coup in the dental tartar camp with an overthrow of the ruling leader and a benign happy state of self-rule is once more in state.
The bathroom rippage will begin tomorrow, after an apologetic phone call with an "oopsie' explanation.

The new blog, Dunolly & District, was launched last night without fanfare; there are still a few holes in my chronology so expect several upcoming dates to be a little on the thin side and admire the pictures posted to distract you from that sad fact.
I would cheerfully move permanently to Dunolly just for the peace it brings my feral kidlet but without a car it would leave us at the mercy of the whims of the sporadic bus service/s in an isolated town.

1757 Scottish engineer Thomas Telford was pupped.
1840 Britain allowed Canada to sell off public land formerly set aside for the church and gave the proceeds to the Churches of England and Scotland.
1870 The Melbourne Town Hall was officially opened.
1930 George Nepia played his final All Blacks test.
The Nylex Clock is still busted.
Yellow = New Zealand
Orange  = Canada
Green = Australian
Red = UK or other nationality
Italics, bold and coloured blue are links to further info. 
Anything outrageous is usually sarcasm and/or humour


  1. If you keep promoting Dunolly this way, many people will want to got there, so it's possible a better bus service will ensue? You know, so the government can tax all those lovely tourist dollars flowing in.
    I just hope that doesn't spoil the lovely little town.

  2. See, there's a method in my madness, River :P

  3. That Chinese guy has my I-pod. He's taunting me. I feel it.

    Get bicycles and move to Dunnolly. If you get a bicycle made for two, Feral beast can be your eyes. Plus, he won't be able to see if you need to take a little break and stop pedaling.
