I'm taking Petey in for a service and check up tomorrow so fingers crossed that it won't be too expensive. Or if it is, that my warranty will cover it!
No other major news at the moment. I'm off for a swim soon, it's a scorcher today!
I've found a remedy to the Jac doesn't like drinking water but it's hot and she has to problem. It has also fixed my coke (cola) habit. Soda water. In a can! Simple, yet brilliant. It's cold, sugar free and it satisfied the need for fizz. Why did I not think of this earlier? I've been drinking the coke C2 rubbish...not sure if it's in Oz yet but it's 50:50 coke/diet coke and has the worst features of each of them (sugar AND the nasty artificial sweetener taste). And did I warn y'all to stay clear of the Coke Blak (blerk). Who mixes fizzy coke and weak coffee? It's all kinds of nasty! Pepsi trialed the same sort of thing in the mid 90's with Pepsi Kona, a screaming flop. As someone in a forum somewhere said (of coke blak) "what soft drink can survive when half its name is made up of the sound you make as you spit it out".
And finally, this little gem. Thanks Booey for the heads up on the amazing sunrise this morning. I hope some of you saw it! This is the tail end of it, I missed the rest.
