    Today I learned that a solenoid diaphragm for a washer-decontaminator has a plunger inside which occasionally needs cleaning.

    Did anyone else learn anything today?

      I’ve just completed a week-long study into bacon. Ive eaten it at least once each day, and present my conclusions:
      1. Bacon is delicious.
      2. Bacon makes everything better.
      3. It appears to be impossible to get sick of bacon.

      • caochladh

        Me too! Have you noticed the quality control for sliced packet bacon has taken a nose dive.

        • ex-JAFA

          One does have to choose carefully, particularly at the budget end of the scale. Watch for too much water content! Heller’s Streaky is good quality and price right now.

          • Hedgehog

            You are soo right. Packed Bacon just about half water.

          • Tom

            Westmere butchery smoked bacon. I’m salivating thing about it

          • ex-JAFA

            My knees went weak when I saw Henderson’s at the supermarket last week, but sadly so did my bank manager’s. So Heller’s it was.

          • Tom

            I’ve worked out that it costs the same when you factor in shrink

          • caochladh

            I normally buy the Beehive rind-less eye, but the 20 or so packets on the shelf looked more like scrag ends someone picked up off the floor, so it was Freedom Farms.

      • Nige.

        did you try chicken bacon as suggested by pete the other evening?

        • ex-JAFA

          Tried that some years ago when it first came out. It didn’t do anything for me. Vague baconesque flavour, but that was about it.

        • Hedgehog

          Yup chicken and bacon – great combination. Bit of mayo to make things slide together. Delicious.

          • ex-JAFA

            Oh yeah, chicken AND bacon. I accompany with pineapple slices and a garlic aioli.

          • Tom

            Did you know you can get mayo made with bacon? Baconaisse hahaha

        • intelligentes candida diva

          I’ve had chicken bacon and venison bacon both scrumptious but gotta say bacon isn’t quite bacon if it aint piggy bacon

      We have the best wicketkeeper batsman in the world. Only on six occasions has the sixth wicket partnerships exceeded 200 runs in all tests played in the history of world cricket. Watling was at the crease on three of these occasions.

      • Carl

        I would have to have him as a close second to AB Devilliers on current form.

      • jcpry

        Really great effort by him and Williamson. Williamson is going to be our best ever if he continues in this form.

      I learnt that if you have to wear overalls and a welding helmet today, you have second thoughts about global warming

        Spare a thought for my stepson in Perth – 42 degrees outside the workshop, and worse inside where he spends his days welding.

      • Garbageman

        Thats damn hard work in this heat Steve i supply our 50 lads on the floor an electrolyte drink called Squincher, i dont know how they put up with the heat migging tigging and polishing inside stainless wine tanks and asstd vessels, funnly enough i get a lot of visits from the lads as i keep my air con on full blast

            Good job i didnt mention i also supply ice for the main container as well then, happy workers and all that, all non union as well

        • Steve (North Shore)

          Not hard work, just work. At 62 I can handle it, pity some of the so called ‘fat bastards’ that Cam talks about don’t try working like this. I like it

      No one seems to have left Auckland for the holidays. Around 11;00am it was madness shopping up in Albany.

    • Hard1

      I have learnt that “The Maori”, collectively, before the Pakeha, were never a single cultural entity.

      • Monty Bank

        At a BarbQ over weekend we were talking about cannibalism, well, I was talking about cannibalism, all knew that Maori practiced cannibalism as did some tribes in PNG, unsurprisingly few others had heard about S American tribes who practiced it and none knew about Sawney Bean.
        The real suprising thing was that not one person there (all born in NZ) knew that Maoris kept slaves.

        • Hedgehog

          OK, me too. Thinking about it though, most primitive tribes kept slaves – well I’d think so. Shrunken heads are a bit to time consuming.

          • Nechtan

            I would think most cultures/peoples have had slaves at one time or another.

    • Greg M

      Indeed I did.
      Always turn your dishwasher tap off when you go away on holiday. This avoids flooding two other apartments as well as your own when it develops a pin hole leak, which then goes undetected for three weeks.

      • Nige.

        I think you and water should take a break.

    • Monty Bank

      Yes.
      Old dog, new tricks.
      I’ve been brushing my teeth the wrong way for over 50 years. Today my dentist told me not to brush up and down, because that moves and damages the gums which don’t grow back, rather to use a circular movement.
      Never too old to learn.

      • willtin

        Buy electric – you’ll never look black

        • Monty Bank

          Yup. I’m going back to electric.

            Recently bought a new Braun. Old one finally died after 16 years.

          • Nige.

            BRAUN! Top brand. Just scored one of those old original Braun juicers (if you know throne I mean). Must be 30 years old and still running perfectly.

      I learned that if one wants ones lamb to cook, one must first put it in the oven.

      The only thing stopping me watching Prime TV (and the fantastic QI) was the position of the aerial cable these past 4 months. Twiddled it a bit and now crystal clear. Shazbot!

      • ex-JAFA

        QI is an excellent show, but is sadly shown too little on free-to-air TV. Luckily it’s available on YouTube with 24 hours of it screening in the UK. Seach for “qi xl” to get the 45-minute version, rather than the severely shortened version which Prime screens.

        • Tom

          Did not know they trimmed it.

          • ex-JAFA

            From a two-hour shoot per episode, 23- and 45-odd minute episodes are edited. Both are screened in the UK, but presumably at different times and/or on different channels. The 23-minute version is licensed for overseas markets, making it a half hour show on Prime once ads are included.

        • Chris EM

          I’ve been watching the xl on Youtube. Great to watch, but I really struggle with Alan Davis, just don’t find him funny.

          • ex-JAFA

            I like the ones with Sandy Toksvig best. A classy Scandi lesbian.

          • Chris EM

            Yeah, I like her humour.

          • ex-JAFA

            One of my favourite Stephen Fry quotes: “They can get a man on the moon, but they still can’t get one on Sandy Toksvig.”

          • Chris EM

            Ha! Yeah I think I remember that one, when he was doing the introductions.

    • intelligentes candida diva

      I learned that if you deal with/ serve back BS in the same way it was dished up, at the end of the day I go home with no BS baggage because its dealt to and … damm it feels good too.

      • Putting one of your new year’s resoultions/aims into practice – good for you! I particularly remember that one as I’m applying it to a certain group of people this year. I’m quite looking forward to it.

    Northland’s economy has been struggling for years. The one positive aspect is the influx of International tourists.
    But for how much longer?
    Hardly a month goes by where tourists, visiting Northland, are violently assaulted and robbed of their possesions.
    It is only six days into this year and yet there has been another attack involving two Americans, one whom requires facial reconstruction surgery.
    An international tourist site (Virtualtourism) has identified Northland as one of the most dangerous places on Earth for tourists.
    Who are these scum? What motivates their sense of entitlement? What motivates their violence? Honi Harewera could lead by example by not spewing hate speach towards anyone who doesn’t embrace his warped philosophy, usually the white middle-class is his target. The grievance/victim mentality is somewhat responsible for the far north’s economic stagnating. The one bright light, your tourism industry, is being slowly extinguished.

    • Wheninrome

      Bay of Plenty has similar issues in how they treat tourists.

    “Police said passengers of a car were seen climbing on to its roof and bonnet shortly
    before it crashed.Witnesses saw a car’s occupants climbing on to its roof and
    bonnet and a passenger urinating out of a window before it crashed on Friday.
    Police said the car’s four teenage occupants were very lucky to not have sustained serious injuries.”
    In the Herald today, so if they had died we would have a repeat of handwringing etc., about these youngsters and how it was just the silly things that the young get up to. We would be reminded that “there but for the Grace of God” etc., and so on. I wonder whether if they had caused an accident to someone else what sort of handwringing would take place.

    • Blue Tim

      Tax paying motorists had done the right thing and dialled *555 & reported the car. The police could have scrambled their Hanmer, Culverden and Amberley cops to run them down but I suppose they were too busy pulling people up for doing 102

    • Hedgehog

      Still be labeled speed rather than stupidity.

    • yossarian

      I wonder how the Police factor into their strategy, such as it is, dealing with low IQ numbskulls like this lot. No “drive safely” messages are ever going to reach them, and they put the rest of us at risk every time they get on the road. More time keeping these loonies in check and less time looking for drivers a couple of km above the limit while overtaking on a straight road might be an idea.

        Right, this is the same woman who a judge believed over Amanda Banks. A woman who lied about dates when a relationship started.

  • Cadwallader

    With Tim Roxborogh on in the evenings and the promise of Rachaelly Smallbrain returning soon I am gloomy about the future of ZB. The weekend sports shows are now a bit flashy and glib since the departure of Murray Deaker a year ago, the weekend morning hosts are irritating, and the fill-ins from Bruce Russell are trite. Doesn’t leave a lot. I do enjoy Tim Dower in the holidays and on the odd night he takes over from Kerre. He does have good humour in a self-deprecating way. Over all the future is not looking too good at all with inevitable retirements on the horizon.

    • Hedgehog

      Yep agree totally. Was just about totally ZB for my radio, but now tune in less and less. Just seems like a dumbed down version of a few years back. Maybe they are targeting the stay at home sector – retirees and unemployable s.

      • GoingRight

        Well we are retired and also listen less and less. More time to read, garden or select on TV what we want to watch.

    • Blue Tim

      Same parent company as Herald. Sums it up I think

      • Dave

        Yes, the planned socialist agenda will not fit very well with the majority of ZB’s prior audience, but strategy and numbers was never a strength of the socialists, or it seems the strategists at the horrid herald.

  • Meg

    Anyone know anything about a bunch of nutters establishing a “survivalist camp” in Marlborough? They are stockpiling heaps of stuff in anticipation of the total collapse of society. Alarmingly, that includes ammunition.

    One associated name is Hemon (Herman?) Dey.

    I’d like to know where they are – to avoid them at all costs. I like Marlaborough, spend a lot of time there.

    • Murray Smith

      No, but if society were to collapse, I’d like to have a rifle and ammunition, in order to eat . Quite useful items for survival, I’d imagine.

      • Excitedly awaiting Whodunnit

        Same. Multi calibres and a good old pump action12g. And enough ammo to feed them for quite some time – should the zombie appocalypse happens.

    • Nige.

      There are several people like that in new zealand not just in Marlborough.

      Im a bit uncomfortable about you naming names unless you have some factual specific reasons which are not defamatory.

    • Tom

      Sound like a fun bunch, probably read the civil defense manual cover to cover and can’t rely on their local gunship to keep their preferred ammo in stock. What’s the problem?

      • Isherman

        and Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare.

        • Nechtan

          Don’t remember that one, but Cobra (Sylvester Stallone) was along the same lines as Pete’s Nazi Surfers.

    • Isherman

      Well I remember this, 1987 gave us some movies that I could still watch again now. Predator, The Lost Boys, Hellraiser, Bad Taste even, this wouldn’t make that list I’m afraid as it was bad even by 1987 parody standards, truly awful.

  • Nechtan
    • Isherman

      The expressions and facials of the driver were pretty funny…except looking at the eyes with a contorted face I kept seeing Colin Craig…..

      • Nechtan

        Yeah I guess so (the eyes anyway), the front seat passenger has a sort of Dan Carter look.

  • Rick H

    Earlier today there was an article about the UK Govt using “non UK” photos promoting their fine land and the governence thereof.
    The talk got to “photoshopping” etc instead of getting out with the old Box Brownie.

      I cant tell what it is exactly without downloading. I assume its a game that encourages you to exercise. I go to what might be a boring site but I am almost done walking across America – one state to go. You can join others as a group and complete or just challenge yourself to walk far enough to complete the walk. Great for anyone who has a step/mileage counter of any kind whether the older version or the new wrist ones. http://exercise.lbl.gov/index.html

    I don’t know much about David Seymour except that I voted for him. But tonight I got home to find him going door to door just checking that all was well in the hood and making himself available.
    Well done David especially repeating such an onerous task so soon after the election.

    • Toothbrush76

      We had a friendly recorded message from David today. Normally I would be put off by a “spam” telephone call but I wasn’t today. Somehow he has a way of including you without a hard sell.

    “they dont see you coming do they Bob”
    Anyone got any movie recommendations ?

    • Primrose

      If you haven’t already seen it, “Pride” is well worth viewing. Make you laugh and make you cry. Look on the other side of life.

      • intelligentes candida diva

        I like thrillers or movies that make me laugh out loud till I cry, and cry its delicious a good soul work out TY

    • Moonroof

      No Country for Old Men. Coen bros, and Javier Bardem does brilliant job of bad guy. Beautifully shot and produced, the Blu-ray looks (and sounds) very good.

      • intelligentes candida diva

        I can see a lazy couch session when the weather turns…synopsis that will do fine TY

        • Moonroof

          And for more Coen bros, O Brother Where art Thou still stands, and Fargo. If you’re a Peter Dinklage fan (Tyrion in GoT), The Station Agent is a good watch on a wet Sunday – no thriller, but kind of poetic, despite initial misgivings, enjoyable.

          • Nige.

            Oh those soggy bottom boys crack me up every time!

          • intelligentes candida diva

      Yes. Mazda3 MP25. Very happy with it.

        Nice. The new Mazdas look quite decent, and you can option one with the magic third pedal. Petrol or diesel?

        • Chris EM

          Someone else who likes a manual! We’re a dying breed, Moonroof.

          • Moonroof

            I drive the car, not vice-versa. Not a passenger with steering wheel and pedals…

          • Chris EM

            Absolutely agree. I’ve been a passenger for the last four years, company car with a CVT. : (

          • Moonroof

            And for a closing note, those autos just make it too easy for drivers to be distracted by other things (phones, GPSs, coffee cups, hairbrushes et al) with resulting inattention, slow traffic, and pointless nose-tail crashes.
            Dunno where you are, but I’m sure traffic would move better if folks were on the ball because driving a manual requires attention to job at hand, and looking around you…

          • Dave

            Our car, and work vehicles all have GPS, the rules are NO altering it while driving, we have them set to disable all menu’s when moving. We really rely on them for accurate speed and times to destination, its great to text clients with an ETA.

          • rantykiwi

            Add me in too – current toy is a (slightly warmed over) NC MX5 in manual. RantyJr has caught the manual bug from me too – hates the auto company car he gets to use, much prefers his 3 pedal Corolla.

          • Chris EM

            MX5, proper little sports car. Good to hear Jr enjoys a manual. Some cars just aren’t available with a clutch these days. It scares me.

          • rantykiwi

            I always get out of the MX5 with a smile on my face – it’s not spectacularly quick but the handling is outstanding and driving it is fun.

        • essiep

          Petrol. Auto but I like driving too so use the manual option a lot especially up & down the hills that we have in the Wairarapa.

      • rantykiwi

        Drove a Mazda 3 SP22 (the diseasel one) manual recently. They are quick, quiet and handle halfway decently. Hate the horrible GPS/audio display that looks like it’s just been dumped on top of the dash as an afterthought and doesn’t fold away. Then MrsRanty bought a CX5 – great car, much better than the RAV4 which preceeded it.

          New work vehicle soon, looked at the CX5, but the VW Tiguan 130 KW diesel won, we found it smoother, and over here the diesel’s perform better on the longer distances.

          Love the acceleration. No matter what the Police say I would rather be in the other lane for the least time possible.

    • Alright

      Golf. Auto.

    • Quinton Hogg

      Yup, Volvo V60.
      Safe and secure. Also goes like a rocket.
      Wolf in sheets clothing.

      • Alright

        QH – you should never buy anything wrapped in sheets. It might turn out to be the wrong colour!

      Love the comments, Lance Wiggs gets all scratchy over the numbers, and has a huge smack down from “Maurice” Well worth a read.

      Lance, I admire you in some ways, but give up on the bikes, they are not the solution.

      • Alright

        Its a good thread eh Dave..

        We boys love our cars!

        Are we thinking about sixes now oil prices have gone through the floor?

      I upgraded the shopping basket to a Fiat Punto. Strange gearbox.

    Normally there is nothing at all funny about documentaries involving IS / ISIS. Last night however I watched a doco on the BBC news channel that was about a citizen reporter (and local) in Kobane who is documenting life there since IS turned up. The reporter was talking with an all female Kurdish unit, and the commander intimated that IS fighters dread them the most. Not because of the weapons, fighting prowess or anything like that, but rather their biggest fear is that being killed by a woman.. means they might go to Hell…ROFL.

    • intelligentes candida diva

      Have seen that. Those females are strong focused females…. good stuff that doco.

      • Isherman

        IS should be mindful of that in the parts of Syria they want to get a foothold in, like the Golan for example. If you can go to Hell for being killed by a Kurdish woman, what would the fate be if they got into a firefight on the Golan Heights border with Israel, and were killed by a female and Jewish Israeli soldier…

      Thats awesome Sally haven’t had a good cow killing story here for ages

    • Alright

      Right. A steak in the ground. I don’t want to re-veal much, except to say I’m not mutton dressed up as lamb. But I do hold you deer Sally.

      No capital I on the word Islam. Would a Muslim really let that happen? Probably a stirrer with too much time on their hands.

    • Isherman

      And yet the Kurds (as Muslims) don’t seem to mind dogs at all, the doco I mentioned below has them happily running around providing some light relief and amusement too.

      • caochladh

        In contrast to this……….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3csLrtuEIM

        • Isherman

          That’ll learn him, no sympathy.

          • caochladh

            Absolutely! I hope they organised some rabies shots for the dog afterwards.

      • caochladh

        Which is more than can be said for our home grown mongrels up North who do this to man’s best friend. https://www.facebook.com/Paw.Justice.Campaign

        • Dave

          The most appropriate response for when this little mongrel gets their day in court, would be for the judge to say:

          I’m not going to send you to prison, rather, im going to send you home, right to where you housed your beloved dog, Whereby, you are to be fed and watered just as he was, very little of either, you are to be tied up, as treated just as harshly as he was, your little neck will have a tight wire around it until it bleeds and is so raw it has maggotts crawling on it. You are to be housed and treated like this, until your spirit is broken, you want to die, and you have trouble walking. Oh, and we will get a few mates to come round and put the boot in just in case you were doing the same to your dog.

          After watching the little toerag mess his pants and start sobbing, the judge could continue, Alas, as much as I would like to, I cannot sentance you to that, So its 5 years jail, followed by 5 years voluntary work shovelling out the kennels at the RSPCA, breach that, touch one animal or person, its back to jail.

          Seriously, I don’t condone any violence, but this is just beyond acceptable.

      Id be the smart ass who’d reply with another one…

      “This is Britain.
      We love dogs here.
      If you don’t like them go somewhere else.”

    • Alright
