Another one. Taken a while back, but even that day I walked a bit to find this shot. I doubt it's great, but hopefully you'll have an idea how breathtakingly beautiful it was for me.

Alarm Bleeps...

I recently had to change my alarm on my car... I don't know if I *had* to, but the auto-mechanic said that the alarm was giving trouble, and well, my feeling is, that if I take it back to him every time, I can have what he's used to in the car. It wasn't cheap, but hopefully it will add to reliability.

The interesting thing about this alarm though, is that the "On/Off" bleeps are inverted from how the old one was. My old one was :
1 Bleep : On
2 Bleeps : Off

Our house was always set up like that, and I recall the installers saying "the amount of letters after the O is what it means".

So my current alarm is:
1 Bleep : Off
2 Bleeps : On

How do I get used to this? Well what I did was I decided that when it goes Bleep, it's my car saying "Hi!", and when it goes Bleep-Bleep, it's my car saying "Bye-Bye!".

So now, when the card says Hi, I say Hi back, and when it says Bye-bye, I say bye-bye back. This will hopefully get me used to it.

Well... I know I won't be using the "Send Secret Thoughts" application anytime soon.

Rain in the cape

Yesterday we had rain so highveldlike which we don't often see here. Hail, thunder and lightning, and high volumes of rain in a short time. This picture is after the rain has been gone for at least half an hour, showing how the drain pipes can't handle the sheer volume of water. Fascinating and scary.

Kulula EMERGENCY Poolboy

I'm no amateur,
this is not toy.
I'm an expert in my field,
I'm emergency pool boy!
I'm a jet setter,
I'm a jet setter.

When H2O needs fixing,
Kulula is my ride,
if swimming pool is greener,
on the other side
I'm a jet setter.

I provide a personal service,
more personal than you think,
satisfaction is guaranteed,
nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
Jet setter!

Love the advert, reminds me of Desperate Housewives.
