I thought we could try this. Just, you know, general talking about anything off-topic, on topic , anything on your mind. just place to chit chat, bring up the odd subject which doesn't fit into other threads, tell what's on your mind, how was your day.. anything.

So how was your day? biggrin.gif

What a nice topic.

Today I slept way too long and I was pretty much all day alone with my son. He's very loud and sometimes his crying hurts my ears a lot, but most of the time he's such a charmer. So after I woke up, made some coffee, checked my mail and changed few diapers and called my mom. She was expecting me to join her in gym, but I told her I couldn't since I was with the baby all day. So I turned the tv on and started watching MacGyver season 4 with my boy. Rest of the family were riding the horses today. Later on, I had to order pizza, since I couldn't find the time to make food today, so what did I have. Salami, jalapenos, pineapple, bacon and pepperoni sausage.

Harry Jackson: There was a time when I could run all day without breaking a sweat. I tell ya: it's hell getting old.
MacGyver: Age is only in the mind, Harry.
Harry Jackson: Well, my mind tells me I'm gettin' old.

Can I complain? XD

Kidding... lol Uhm, not much right now. Just finishing up dinner (coconut almond granola w/ almond milk) and I'm about to meet one of my friends on Xbox Live.

Had a great time visiting my Dad in New York. Though, I came home to a bad stink in my apartment. According to my landlady, there was a power outage on Friday, which caused my fridge to conk out. We're not sure if the thawed food shorted it out, or if it just never came back on, but it was off for several days until I came home. God, what a mess.

The fridge is working fine now, but I had to throw away everything in it... thankfully, there wasn't a lot.

Besides that, I got nada in the excitement department. OH! Here are some pics I took when we went to Madrid, NY. It's a rural area, but it's pretty there. happy.gif

Great topic Duckt tape! biggrin.gif

Beautiful pics Jedi!

And speaking of beautiful, A great pic of your wife, Harry!

On Monday, it will officially be Spring in south Africa but as luck would have it, today is a COLD day. Windy and snowing in some parts. So the weekend looks pretty grim. Still, hoping to visit some family and take it easy.

Other news?

Anyone else noticing the crazy news about the Ebola outbreak? Sheesh! I hope they find a cure with the trial tests of the new anti viral starting next week.

Tomorrow here will be a kind of annual country fair. There's gonna be some music artists, ponies for kids to ride, stales where you can buy some traditional food and handmade stuff etc. our neighbor used to make fireworks there every year but i doubt there'll be any fireworks this year since my neighbor has retired. And after that I'm gonna see a friend and we'll skype to our mutual friend who's living in Columbia at the moment.

This doesn't look like a great Saturday for me, it's rainy and my plans are only to go see my husband at the hospital, the weekly shopping and some housework. Fortunately not all days are like this, I hope tomorrow will be better. smile.gif

i can imagine!

Try to see the bright sides people smile.gif Harry you're at work all weekend but you get money from that and then you can go home and have a good time with your wife and children.

cmbj I hope your husband is ok. Maybe you could buy something nice for you when you go to shopping to make a day a little better and at least you can see your husband at the hospital and make the best out of it smile.gif

Hope you guys have better day tomorrow.

Well my day also didn't go as planned. Didn't see my friend as she was too busy and next week I'm going back to my apartment which means I won't be able to see any of my friends probably until christmas.

But tomorrow I'll go to Stockholm cruise with my mom. something to look forward to. smile.gif

Oh yeah, I remember those. I'm not sure if the Mega ones are the same thing or not. I use to be a big fan of the rice crispy kind, but they don't sell them in north america anymore, just everywhere else. In their place we got pretzel m&ms, which actually taste more like a cookie than a pretzel. smile.gif

Anyone here ever had to rent a storage unit to store their stuff? It sucks trying to live out of one of those. Well, not live *in* it, just having to go there for every darn thing you happen to need. Today another renter was showing me where water leaked into the building and ruined some of their stuff. On top of that some idiot has put moth balls in their unit somewhere in the building and the whole place stinks. I need to find another facility before my things wind up damaged or reeking of chemicals. sad.gif

Survived the weekend. I don't often do long days, so I was really tired.. I tried to watch MacGyver after work, but fell asleep after few minutes. Now I'm trying to fill the customs papers, since ordered few SAK's from USA. I'm still missing few SAK from my MacGyver collection and it's actually hard to complete it when sellers refuse to send over sea. Other times I might find the right item and seller but the condition is poor doh.gif . It's a quest and I don't see end to it anytime soon macsak.gif

That is the fun of it, Harry. Because when you have finally completed that collection, you will appreciate it more knowing it was not easy to do!

Harry did you try ebay? they send all over the world often with free shipping.

I've been thinking about buying a new SAK also but still don't know. I't would be cool to actually have a real victorinox SAK but do I need one as my current knife usually gets the job done. On the other hand would it be that bad to have two SAK especially when the one I have doesn't include some items that any real SAK would have and I didn't buy it I found it from our cabin.

Well it's officially autumn now and my school will start next week. Tomorrow I'll be heading to my apartment and since I now have a single apartment I can take my dog with me. God I'm so nervous! Last time I travelled with Leevi in a train was when Leevi was still a puppy and that time there wasn't any other pets in the same wagon. I doubt he remembers anything about it and I have absolutely no idea how he'll react and it's 5 hours train travel. And after that 8 km walk to my place with 3 luggage and a dog. Might be that I also have to carry Leevi if he gets too tired but I'm positive he can walk. And that's only for the journey. Then there's the whole living alone in a new place thing. I've never actually lived alone before. I've always have flatmates. Now I'll be alone and I'm a bit worried about how lonely it will be. I hope my dog will make it a little bit easier. But then I'm also worried about how my dog will manage. He has lived in a big family house all his life and now I'll take him to a student flat. It won't be permanent as we'll still visit my parents every month and then Leevi can stay with them if he wants to or come back to my place if he wants to. And with me he mostly only has to be 3 hours alone per day and with my parents he always has to be 8 hours minimum alone per day. I just hope he wont bark so much that my neighbors start to complain and that he won't destroy my flat while i'm at uni. unsure.gif

Well its officially spring this side of town!!!

Original SAK are great Duckt tape. More so, however due to their durability. With so many to choose from, would you know which one you would be interested in getting?

Yes, the search is part of the fun, but definitely a challenge, because of so many retired models. I'm collecting these for a MacGyver display set and not to be used in everyday life. I have other SAK's that I use for different daily tasks. If I were to buy one, I would get a Leatherman or Swiss multitool. What I have heard RDA collects SAK's also and has been using multitools like Leatherman often. I remember RDA saying in some video that he used to take SAK's from a filming set MacG.gif

I think the coolest SAK I ever bought was one I bought for my sister. It's a basic model, so it's one of the small ones, but it has a flash drive.

She loves it because she's got all the basic tools, plus the flash drive, which she uses for work.

I believe that modern MacGyver would have a flash drive on his SAK. XD Am I right?

In other news... I managed to drag my butt out of bed before noon! GO ME! smile.gif

It's interesting thought, what kind of SAK would modern MacGyver use or would he use Leatherman instead. Like in the new movie for example.

Harry Jackson: There was a time when I could run all day without breaking a sweat. I tell ya: it's hell getting old.
MacGyver: Age is only in the mind, Harry.
Harry Jackson: Well, my mind tells me I'm gettin' old.

Today I heard horrible news about my cousin. Some skinhead attacked and stabbed him multiple times in front of restaurant. He's now in intensive care unit and has been operated. I haven't heard any details of this case yet or if the police caught the guy.

Harry Jackson: There was a time when I could run all day without breaking a sweat. I tell ya: it's hell getting old.
MacGyver: Age is only in the mind, Harry.
Harry Jackson: Well, my mind tells me I'm gettin' old.

That's horrific news, Harry. sad.gif Here's hoping that perpetrators are apprehended and a speedy recovery to your cousin!


I attended the Atlantic International Balloon Festival this weekend. Several flights were cancelled due to (not so) high winds. Above 16-18km/hr and they won't fly. Anyway, get some great photos. Here's one that's very MacGyver appropriate. A PPGer doing some crafty maneuvering around a balloon ....

Here's a link to some more images of the hot-air balloons:
