Growing your own veges isn't really worth the money since you can buy them for a lot less at the vege markets - unless you're doing it on some scale or have just 1 person to feed a meagre amount. Eg. My efforts this year to start a vege garden. Cost of: pavers (used & won off trademe), husband spending time putting the pavers down and hiring a saw to cut the pavers, husband's effort making a huge planter, cost of wood and mulch. At least we had earth from leveling the bit of paved area so we didn't have to buy earth. And lastly, cost of seeds - they were cheaper than buying seedlings.
But I can't complain, the veges are growing well and I amuse the cats with weeding and looking for caterpillars to squash. It' just definitely not worth the money, it's more a hobby thing. More about Off the Radar DVD's
This is my fav movie battle scene from the 5th Element. The blue alien sings while Leeloo beats up aliens. Great moves, great music!

... I started life as a tumour. My mum thought something was wrong and went to see a specialist. Negative pregnancy test and he says, "Hmm, it's a tumour." Dad takes Mum to specialist no.2. Negative pregnancy test. "It could be a tumour ..."
... Fast forward many years to another specialist ... I'm visiting him for a knee injury from skiing. While wearing a huge plaster on my chin and gravel burn on my cheek and knee from a recent fall off a scooter. Specialists are so professional & tactful. I think, oh yeah, he's going to say something about me being a super klutz ... and he doesn't say a word about the scrapes! More about Burn After Reading DVD's
"Form a do it now habit".
Yup, just like my mum always said, "Get it over and done with."
And my dad always said, "Procrastination is the theif of time." Yeah, the pressure not to procrastinate was pretty high in my family! :) More about 20 Procrastination Hacks
EEK, is that pic for real? It's liks a flesh-covered Michellin Man!
Muscles are all very well but I think you should aim for a nice balance that you can sustain for most of your life. No use being all hunky for a couple of years and letting it all go.
Like what happens to muscle when you don't sustain your eating and body building routine? Does the volume of flesh remain but it's now flaccid? Euuuwww. I hope you just get smaller slowly.

As for heart disease - the latest research points to needing to eat more animal fat and meat for a healthy heart and blood vessels. Check out articles by this doctor - Dr. Dwight Lundell.
Also check out the Fathead documentary by Tom Naughton. It's funny & intersting, but has a lot of serious facts in it.

1. The best cure to a hangover is not to get one in the first place!
Stick to vodka and gin - they're pureer alcohols and don't have those byproducts (what ever they're called) that things like scotch and red wine do which give you nasty hangovers.
2. If you do get a hangover you can try my dad's hangover cure.
Pour about 150 ml of cold coffee into a large glass. Add a generous knob of softened butter. Add a dash of milk. Crack in 2 raw eggs. Stir with a fork. Drink concoction.
Now you know why I recommend not getting a hangover in the first place - I can't imagine feeling awful enough to want to drink that concoction! More about Avoiding hangovers
This is such a true statement - "The highest volume beers tend to be those with the least amount of flavour so they'll offend the least amount of people."
I never realised that until I started brewing beer at home. Our beers are full of flavour, rich and smooth. Now when I drink something mass produced that's really popular, no names mentioned, I think, where's the flavour? They're pretty blah all right.
And then again I get people who may have had a bad student experince with home brew who won't even try my stuff. Humph, I used to be a microbiologist, it's not like I brewed it in the bath! More about Q&A Get Frank – Hallertau Brewery
A very interesting article. However at the end of the day 75% of wine is bought and consumed on the same day. (I read this stat somewhere.) These people aren't going to notice a rating system. They're probably going to go by price and the grape variety, any maybe a wee gold or silver award sticker on the bottle. It could be a liquorland or new world award sticker, it won't matter.
We have a wine collection in the basement, but alas don't drink quite enough. We like trying and buying tho. It's a lot of fun. Over the years I've learned that the most important thing is that you enjoy the wine.
Don't go by any pretentious description of a wine that goes along the lines of ".... the wine has an intriguing aroma, not unlike a hint of sweaty saddles, ridden by 18 year old virgin girls ...." More about Bucking the Trend
We just don't have the population in nz to have such a magnificant spectacle. And watching a game at the pub or at home just isn't going to help numbers at a live game either. It's a shame really. I hope it's not the beginning of the end. More about Buenos Aires: Football Fervor
