First BBQ of the season

Today was a beautiful day in Auckland. Warm, slightly humid and sunny.

We had lunch in the courtyard, the first outside lunch of the season and tonight I am cooking Pork Spare Ribs and Corn on the Cob on the BBQ….To quote Homer on pigs "Mmmmmmm…..a wonderful magical animal".

Not even October and we are BBQing….and the government wants to stop Global Warming!!!!

    Wasn't it a coincidence that in the week Clark announced her carbon trading policies, TV3 showed "The Day After Tomorrow" last night.

    I wonder what movies we might expect in the closing weeks of an election campaign.

    Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" probably, but I doubt the UK Channel 4s sceptical movie will get a showing.

  • We had our first BBQ this weekend, too. Also heard the first cicadas of the season – could this be an early summer? Hope so. Just to make sure, will take car out for pointless trips, to help keep the planet nice and toasty warm.
