He hasn't had to go out to a contract for so long that he has had to return home twice now to get what he left behind. He was on time, now I guess we will just have to wait and see if he does get there on time!


I hate writing titles as they never seem to fit.
Now times for some updates.

I am still continuing to try new and interesting recipes and making notes on what I am cooking, the changes I make and what it would go well with in preparation for e-courses. E-courses though have been a little slow this year though last year's content still seems to be of interest. I will continue with this as who know s where the future might lead.

Smaug & Sloth (bearded dragons)
They seem to be growing well though Smaug still has his problems. Lately he has been seen to be shaking and with bad eye to mouth co-ordination so I swapped him to a different enclosure with a different light. Since going into this enclosure, he has brightened up in colour, as has sloth, become a happier dragon with a better appetite. Sloth, is still going great though and I have no problems with her except that she doesn't like to eat in front of people.

Central Netted Dragons
Well they are a little fat but that will work well with the coming cool months when they should hibernate or at least become less active. Sleepy is growing well and looks like his dad (small boss). He still has sight difficulties but it doesn't stop him from doing anything either. The only thing that makes me think, is if it is a male or female!



Today I received proof that my husband doesn't listen to what I have to say. If he does happen to listen he doesn't actually take it in, at least, not until he is given a website as proof or it comes from someone else unrelated to him.

This is the email he got (mind you, I have been telling him this stuff for a while now and have changed my drinking habits also)


Have you ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? It’s because it gets you high. They took the cocaine out almost a hundred years ago. You know why? It was redundant.

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get it’s hands on into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment)

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dialate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

Him Vs Her

He likes to shop, she doesn't.
He bought 'technology', she bought a blueberry bush and wants a larger reptile tank for the skinks
Her costs are minimal compared to his
Gee, men are expensive to keep!
Boys and their toys!


Soccer has finished just in time for cycling to start so if I want any attention it has to be over and done with by 10pm or I am competing with the tv!
If it's not the kids or TV it is work! (Which I was doing till 10.30pm tonight)
