Hiya friends and ether neighbours !.
Here I am, sitting at my (sometimes !) trusty pc, listening to the bells and whistles of the Guy Fawkes 'celebrations' (a few days too early by the way !), wondering why we celebrate that date year after year here in New Zealand.
Last weekend it was Halloween, which I believe is an American thing ?, and then we have Guy Fawkes, which is a British thing ?.
We have Waitangi Day here. Which I feel would be better buried and forgotten, for all the strife it seems to stir up !.
It seems that our generation is almost being punished for what 'the ancestors' did in the way back when.
It had nothing to do with us at all really, (meaning our generation). I believe that it is simply the natural progression of things, for the 'stronger' nation to assimilate the weaker one ?. (You can read, Greedy, for 'stronger' if you want to, But, what country doesn't want to have their cake and eat it too ?. At least we didn't eat the Maori, as they did to the Moriori when they 'invaded' this beautiful country of ours a hell of a long time ago). What are the Maori doing to 'redress' that issue ?. Oh, that's right, it's hard to help some peoples you have wiped from the face of the earth, eh guys :(
'We' didn't continue to fight them until there were none of them left. Maybe it was because they knew their own country too well for that to happen ?.
The Maori's here are always up in arms about it every year, yet they get far more 'benefits' than any other indigineous peoples that I am aware of.
All the settlements (both cash and land) have been given to them for the 'wrongs' that were done to their people from back then, yet, they still have their hands out for more, more ,more.
Meanwhile, it seems that half of the young Maori are on some form of White mans benefit, while the other half are in White mans prisons, being fed by the white man, three meals a day, plus free bed and board. Not that I am saying they are all mostly low life criminals either folks, But, they do have an over representation of them in jails around the country, compared to the 'average' population.
No-one seems to ask 'the elders' just exactly where has all those millions of dollars they have been given going to ?. They certainly aren't feeding their own people with it. WE do that. They aren't helping them out with free (or at least, cheaper) housing, again, WE do that as well.
So ??. Where does it all end up ?.
'They' built some humungeous hotel/motel complex with some of it, that failed for some reason or other, (after being bailed out by 'the government' in the first place). They 'invested' into one of the biggest casino chains over here, and then bemoan the fact of 'problem gambling' amongst 'their kind'. As for the rest of the multi millions ?.
Who knows where that is now ?, it certainly isn't being used to make life any easier for the young Maori, that seems to be Our job too ?.
I know that this may sound like some sort of rascist rant, But, I don't believe that at all really. It is a legitimate, reasonable question, only.
They have one of the most appaling records of child abuse/maiming/killing in the 'developed' world as well, and yet they still call themselves 'civilised'.
How can that be so ??.
Gidday folks !.
I don't know about you guys, but what exactly is it with the young people nowadays ?.
They seem to be lacking the,, ??, fun,, ??, innocence ?, of the time I was growing up in.
Even though I wasn't exactly any sort of angel when I was younger, I didn't go round stealing cars when I was only fourteen, I didn't loiter outside the local dairy and talk to my other young friends (who would have been the grand old age of ten or so), telling them about how much booze/smokes/ I managed to swipe from my drunken dad last night.
The boy with the stolen car died at the scene of the accident, which isn't too surprising really, after all friends, he did have the whole corner of the house he rammed into,when he lost control of the vehicle, on top of the car, his Thirteen year old accomplice is in hospital as I type this, "fighting for his life", in critical condition.
The dead childs parents are "shocked that this could happen to their, lovely boy"
Your 'lovely boy' is nothing but a low life thieving little turd, lady. (Oh,, and just by the way,, Exactly where were You when he was racing through the suburban streets, trying to get away from the cops ?,, Hmm ???)
As I say though guys, I wasn't exactly a paragon of virtue myself, Butt!!, in my defence, it was more the adults around me that were the serious badguys.
Sure, I flogged a few smokes too from my stepgrandfather, (the one's He wasn't giving me for being 'friendly', when he would take me to work with him on the odd occasion), and I may have even stoned a few windows in the derelict houses around the neighbourhood, but that was about the extent of my 'criminal activity'.
Maybe it is as 'They' say (the religious people, the child phycologists, the Concerned Parents League), and we are moving away from the 'morals and 'values' that used to be instilled into us as young children in the 'way back when' ?. (Not the values of the church either friends, I know how meaningless it is to attribute those people with anything like 'virtues', as for morals ?, ha !, that's a laugh !).
I don't know about you folks out there, but the only way I had that stuff instilled in me was through the rule of fear, which we are told nowadays is totally the wrong way of going about it.
How can they learn about respect, when they don't seem to even respect themselves ?.
So,, they misbehave at school, they get detention, they skip out of there without a backward glance, they laugh at the teachers because they know that they are really helpless to do more than 'stand them down' for however long, they misbehave when they finally go back to school, they get detention yet again, they skip that, they then get suspended.. YIPEE !!!, no more bloody school to worry about !.
See how much of a vicious circle that is.
The teacher can't discipline them in any way than that, so they Are helpless, aren't they.
They get sent home, the parents can't strap them either, so, They are helpless as well.
And the child seems to be helpless from having this crap getting worse ?.
That's the sad part isn't it guys, they don't know it yet, but They are going to be the ultimate losers :(
Hello friends and ether neighbours !
I have just been reading in here about how some woman is 'so glad' she circumcised her baby boys penis.
Apparently she couldn't bring herself to peel it back from the head and clean under it properly,, so she goes and mutilates her childs body,, for her own lazy (or squeemish) benefit :(
I wish I had of been given the choice myself. I think that doing that should be the persons choice only. As for doing it for some religious reason, that is even more ludicrous.
She should be charged with child abuse.
Hi there friends and others !
I just read in here about how maybe people aren't all they seem to be inside this site ?.
You have to be very careful about who you take at face value now.
It is apparently quite easy for people to 'steal' one's identities, without that person being aware of what is happening at the time,, until the credit card people start asking when you are paying back that exhorbitant sum that was used to buy some luxury item that you would never in a million years want to buy for yourself.
I suppose that the less technological one is, the easier it is for those scumbags to get away with it in the first place ?.
Is that the same as a virus thing ?.
I had to reboot my pc ages ago when it started turning itself on, after I had logged out and turned it off in the proscribed manner.
I don't think that that is quite the same as how I started my little ramble, but isn't that just the same as stealing your identity ?.
You have people in here that show you their 'wives', in all their naked glory, Butt !,, how does one ascertain that the person being veiwed even knew they were being goggled at by a total stranger ?.
We are really living in the world of make believe now I reckon.

Just waiting for a woman to text me and tell me when she is ready to drive down from Auckland to pick up a big dining room table that my boss sold to her through Trademe last week.
Don't know why I have to go into work on a Saturday though !.
At least that will be one more piece of the boss' 'clutter' leaving my work area !.
It is very slowly being decluttered with his house crap ! Hahaha!.
Now, all we have to do is somehow get rid of the half a dozen or so industrial fridges that no longer work, and have been returned from the cafe's. That would give me back a bit more of my lost work space alright ! Hahaha!.
It is such a pain having to move them constantly from one side of the depot to the other to get to stock that they are blocking :(
I am heartily sick and tired of moving the bloody things all the time !.
You guys and gals have a great weekend off ok :).
Well friends, looks like I must have left a 'friends' gate open (or at least unlatched) last night after coming back from the wholesales with another beer to share with him.
He disappeared around the time I was ready to leave for home, and seeing that the gate was open, I left it open when I left.
I arrived home and gassed up my bike ready for the next days ride to work, and two minutes later he comes storming through our gate, swearing his head off at me for leaving his gate open, (which his 'well trained' dog must have taken advantage of), and wandered a bit down the road.
Swearing and yelling are one thing friends, but when he got close to me and swung the first of many punches, it changed everything.
His first swing slightly connected with my top lip, then when I started to stagger back out of his reach I stumbled into one of the holes that our dog had dug and fell on my ass.
Which was very convenient for me really, as he leant over me and started raining blows at my head with both fists, which all landed on the bike helmet I was still wearing !.
My younger flatmate came outside to see what was going on, and started telling him to leave me alone and get off our property.
My now Ex friend staggered back from me and started making his way to the gate to leave, but not without throwing a sucker punch at the flatmate on the way past, which chipped one of his teeth.
He then got into his car and drove off.
I have just found out that he went to a mutual female friends place and demanded some pot from her. When she told him she had none, he then cursed and swore at her, before getting back into his car and wheelspinning out of her place, across her front lawn.
I have known him for near twenty years now, (with regular contact), and never have I seen him like that before.
I wonder if he is on more 'medication' than he has told anyone about ?.
I have talked my flatmate out of laying assault charges against him, simply for the fact that we don't need the dramas involved in the whole process.
And from this point on,, I have no friend anymore.
And that hurts me worse than the punch ever did.
And I Still couldn't bring myself to retaliate in like kind.
Here I am again, not quite sober, but not quite willing to lay down and take the shit that life is trying to lay on me right now.
I just got told by my younger (and older) flatmate that I left the gate unlocked when I went out after my bath this afternoon.
I am bloody sure that I locked it up with the padlock.
Now the guys are worreid about getting ripped oft ?.
Didn't worry them for the five or six years that we didn't even have a gate to stop the filthy bad guys ?.
I basically said, " Hmmmm, was that My time " ?.
The amount of times I have come home to an unlocked gate ?.,
If the shoe fits friends ?. LOCK IT !!
The 'psychic' ads here are really starting to get up my goat :(.
Either they are gone.
Or I am.
Hiya folks !.
Here I am, trying to not be stuck in the middle of my friends 'disagreements'
The sort between newly weds !.
Even though they have been going together for the last eight or so years.
The female friend calls me, 'her big Brother'. Her hubby calls me, 'Mate' !.
And yet, ?, they seem to get on better when I am there to,?,, mediate ?, between them ?.
I am no marriage counsellor, nor can I take sides. I see the difference in both of them when I am with either or both of them.
And that's why I can't 'take sides'.
They were both stupid in their own ways when they decided to 'tie the knot'.
Him, for not standing up for himself.
And Her, for pushing him down. (Read,, browbeating ?, the,'Do you LOVE me", bullshit head trip).
I hope they last for another eight years as a married couple. And many more after that as well.

And what do we have ?
Another year over
Another time of stress
A meaningless ritual
Or something else ?.
I talked to my younger flatmate the other day about what his plans were for this 'joyous' time of the year.
He said, "I'm going to see my mum and my sister in Rotorua" (New Zealand). I said that that would be cool, you haven't seen them for a year or two.
And then I got to thinking,,, well, Why haven't you ??.
It's not as if they live miles and miles away. And you 'love' them "So much".
By car it is only an hour and a half drive away.
So,, obviously they don't mean that much to him ?.
I came home ten minutes ago, and said to him how he must be looking forward to seeing them tomorrow.
He said,, " I'm not going there now,, It is too far, and I have to work the next day". (Boxing day)
I just can't folow that line of reasoning I'm afraid.
It would be a good 'excuse' if he was on a pushbike maybe ?.
Hiya girls and guyletts !.
I wonder if the person in that psychic ad in here knows that I would never bother asking them somethng for the simple fact that they should just type in my answer before I have asked it in the first place ?. I just thought I would just throw that in by way of being such a funny chap ! Hahaha!.
You guys know what the all important date coming up is ?.
That's Right !!.
It's the birth of SANTA CLAUS !!! Hahaha!!.
But,,, Seriously friends !.
This could very possibly be THE last time that I have the pleasure of boring you guys to near death with my idiotic ramblings :(.
Apparently we are in the last days right now as I type,, another two or three hours and the world as we know it comes to some sort of full stop ?.
I know they haven't been at all very specific as to how that will come about or anything, but according to the powers that be, it is all due to end by the time I have finished typing this i (!!!!).
You know friends, just the fact of me being able to sit here, munching away on a new brand of hot and spicy rice cracker, it occured to me.
Would my life have changed that much if no-one had ever tried to get me to like that taste of cracker, instead of some other totally different brand of taste ?.
Could we equate that random event, something so simple as my mum giving me half a packet of those new bickies today, with the way that that could influence our life's choices later on ?. Where would I be now if I had just said "no". ?. (Would I have learned to like 'going down' ?).
I don't really know if I had the choice or not of, 'eating at the altar', but if I had of felt that I had the Opportunity to not partake of that feast, how different would my life be now ?.
To mislead a young person is far worse than trying to 'mislead' an adult. Unless of course that adult is a few slices short of a loaf, in which case,, more bad karma on You for being so dishonest to start with.
Frowny face there bad people :(
Not even so much as a frowny face really guys, more like an unhappy, sad for your loss of empathy, face.
It's a hard life out there in the 'wilderness', eh friends, could it be called, 'evolution' ?.
Well guys and girletts, looks like this may be my last year of working for my cool boss :(
He took me to one side yesterday to have a 'chat' about the small family owned business that I have been happily working in for the last (almost) six years.
And the news was something that I would have preferred not to hear I'm afraid.
It looks like a variety of things are conspiring against us at the moment. Like too much competition from the larger drinks suppliers,ie, Pack and Save style supermarkets, etc. Plus the fact that we are still supposedly in a time of 'economic downturn', which equates to people not having as much money to frequent the various cafes and restaurants that are the mainstay of our company. Not to mention the price of the gas to deliver the goods in the first place.
We just can't afford to lower our prices any more than they have already been lowered, otherwise we will all be working for basically nothing.
He suggested that I may be able to 'cut my hours down a bit more'.
Seeing that at the moment I am barely doing fifteen hours a week as it is, I just don't think that that is really a viable option for me right now.
I suggested that I could take a $50 pay cut a week, if that would help, but they need a lot more than that measly sum to stay afloat, unfortunately :(
I told him that if I could find an afternoon part time job,(along with the 'reduced' hours from this job, that would help things a bit, but then the boss would have to come in and work at any times that I wasn't there. And he has had enough of working what is basically five jobs all day, (unloading trucks, putting away the said stock, getting it out again for the incoming orders, loading the delivery van, and Then, delivering said stock).
That is a heck of an amount of work guys !.
He did it for years with his wife doing the repping, and he just doesn't want to take two steps backwards at this time of his life.
So things are looking a bit tight around here now :(.
And I was going to ask him to subsidise a new 'made in Germany' motor that I found on the internet the other day,, pretty cheap at $499, excluding postage that is (From Germany !!!). I imagine that the courier costs of that wouldn't be all that cheap either !. But it has to be better than those crappy made in china ones, eh friends !. 'Buy cheap,,, GET cheap', as the saying goes !.
I really can't complain though guys, I have got three new bikes out of working for him for the last six years, interest free loans too !!. And we have had a lot of laughs over a drink or two at his place after work !.
Just makes me a bit sad that it could all be coming to a stop :(
Oh well, life goes on I suppose.
Take care out there friends !.
All because I offered him my new black and white moped to ride and control on the way to our other friends place, that lives miles and miles away !. I don't care if he damages the new bike on it's real first 'run'. I still have two other bikes to use. As long as he doesn't hurt himself, I am ok with it :).
Hiya guys and girletts !.
I just typed out the foremost thought in my brain then !.
Hopefully the CBC 'club' is getting ready for a longer than usual moped ride before xmas !.
That's (the) Casual Bikers Club for those that don't know :).
I invited my male 'love' to ride out on my new black and white bike, while I ride my favourite red bike, and our friend rides his mountain bike one with the jackshaft kit on it.
A group of friends that don't need the 'macho' crap with 'patches' and whatever other paraphernalia makes them feel at home.
For me friends, it's not the speed that counts. It's the Journey !.
Aman ! (Hahahaha!).
Gidday out there friends !
I am getting seriously annoyed with all the rain we have been having for the last week :(. And according to the powers that be, it isn't going to stop any time soon !).
If I had my back guard on my new bike it wouldn't be so bad at all, but I Hate getting a wet ass !!. I am on the look out for a cheapish new carrier for it, so that at least I can put a magazine on it and use that as the protection against the road spray !. And, it would be a good use for one of those stupid gossip mags too !!Hahaha!!.
No doubt some of you people out there read those mind numbing things ?. More than likely you also watch those other crappy 'real life' dramas on the idiot box as well ?.
East Enders ?,,, rubbish !!
Coronation Street ?,,, crap !!.
Emerdale ?,, BOooRIiiNG !!!..
Who needs to watch that sort of stuff I wonder ?.
Doesn't life have enough ups and downs itself, without having to resort to that sort of drivel for, 'entertainment' ?.
My hated grandmother and adopted mother used to watch that Coro St All the time. Not just the show itself, but also any reruns that came on at any other time of the night or day.
No wonder they were both so screwed up in the head :(.
Hiya guys and girletts !.
I am now the proud owner of my third moped bike friends ! :).
I took the new black and white bike for a 'spin' yesterday, and it went really well too !.
Still have some 'modifications' to do to the back mud guard, just because the things are so much wider than the average bike, but all in all guys, it is looking pretty bloody snazzy !! Hahaha!.
I rode it down to the bike shop where I get my parts and stuff from to see if he could get me a wider than usual brake for the front wheel, but, alas, he told me that the one I already bought from him last week was as wide as they come :(.
So, unfortunately, that will mean that the front guard will have to have a couple of small pieces cut out from the sides of it to allow the brake to be fitted properly., and the back guard will have to have a bit of 'panelbeating' to allow the motor chain to spin without hitting the back guard as well :(.
At the moment it only has a standard back pedal braking system on it, and when I took it for it's first ride a couple of days ago (down to the bike shop, about 6km's or so) it certainly took a bit of getting used to the handling, seeing that the red bike has metre wide handlebars, and this one has some half sized apehangars that I scored for it through Trademe.
So I am pretty bloody stoked with how it is turning out now !!.
It is a pity we have rain forcast for all the rest of this week, or I would be riding it around all the time, and bugger the missing back guard !! Hahaha!!.
And I don't have to ride it like I stole it either guys,, because,, I'm not a lowlife thief !!Hahaha!!!.
Keep cool till after school buckos !!.
You know what really gets my goat sometimes friends ?.
It is a boss that blames me for not getting the 'right' stock out of our depot for the incoming orders.
If we had the stock On Hand, then all would be well and good. But when I am writing down a long list of products that we need, and then, all of a sudden, the courier truck with pallets and pallets of stuff that you have to pick your way through to find the right item(s) turns up, then everything turns to shit. :(.
If the stock was ordered in a sufficient amount Before we ran out it, then I wouldn't have had to waste the time writing it down to start with, and there wouldn't be the, confusion?, of searching through the pallets to begin with ?.
Prevention is better than cure.
And I will tell him that tomorrow :)
How's things hanging out there friends ?.
All is pretty well and good in the land of One69 today !.
Not just because it is Friday either !Hahaha!!.
We are having our first 'official' meeting of the CBC tonight !.
That stands for, the Casual Biking Club !. I did want to add the word Moped in there somewhere, but everyone thought that was one too many letters ! HAHAHA!!!.
And they vetoed the idea of the casual moped club, which I thought made a bit more sense, seeing that one needs a moped to 'join' ?. Oh well, majority rules I suppose ! :)
So, there will be a whole Three of us there tonight ! and four or five 'hangeroners ', (although guys, if you called my mates wife that, she would probably land one on you !! Hahaha!!). Not exactly overwhelming numbers I suppose, but, Hey, we have to start somewhere, eh friends !!. Three 'members', four bikes, two of them being mine at the moment, going up to three, when I get my new black and white bike up and running.
No doubt, a lot of people will think it is merely an excuse to 'get on the piss' ?. And they would be right in that to some extent too !. But, who Needs an excuse to do something that comes as naturally to us as rain falling from a cloud laden sky ?.
Whereas, in reality, we do converse, and talk about what's been gong on out there in the wider world. As well as what's been going down in the home lives. (And then the lovely 'girls' get annoyed with us for changing the subject back to the bikes we have, and the bikes we may someday build !Hahaha!!!)
It isn't as if it is an everyday occurance or anything. The last time we all got together and jokingly came up with the idea of meeting as a club would have to be at least three or so months ago.
Hopefully the weather will hold up for our ride later, and a wee picnic at the local lake for the kids tomorrow !
Must be good karma paying me back for a while !Hahaha!!.
I'll let you know how it all pans out guys,ok !. (If anyone even actually reads these things that is, I can picture a guy in a booth, his only job is to scroll through the screen in front of him, randomly hitting a 'like' button, thereby making all the ep'ers think that somebody gives a crap about whatever they have just written, eh guys !! Hahaha!!)
Have fun friends !.
