Anyway the point of this is to note that people all knew how to comb their hair in those days and it's about time I grew what's left of my hair into something combworthy and this has the mark of style for me to aim for. The downside is despite now being quite thin on top my hair has yet to recede, which could make the task difficult but at least the colour's right as I still have a few dark hairs.
Unless laziness rears its usual for me head stay tuned for what be become a change of style.
I soon determined that it needed a new part which they call a diffuser, which also happily is available at a reasonable price for this rather expensive machine, but what may have also cropped up with my looking at it was that it failed to boot at all, this meant me having to disassemble it to check inside, that took hours due to an unhealthy lack of information online.
When the new diffuser arrives I still have doubts about the usability of this, Lorna wants to give it to us but I'll get it running and let her work out what to do. It cost her (former) Hubby $2,000 and does seem a clever machine but it's meant for a different type of person to me.
I always refer to Andre Rieu as Roo-boy and Olivia had never heard of him before coming to Australia but she's quite a fan of him now, why not? he's a master of entertainment and this Xmas show was a good-un.
If I wasn't happily married I could have impure thoughts about his chief lady tooter Manou but at least I can enjoy everything with decent intentions as it's common knowledge that married men never flirt.
May anybody who sees this have a jolly Xmas.
Almost a positive for us is that our local NBN line was finally in service yesterday, great timing by the whomsoever wired it up as we can't do anything about changing our service until some of the holiday season wears off.
This whole mess is symbolic of the leaden saddlebags that have been burdening our economy in recent years, way too much red tape and nobody auditing what real costs should be.
It's looking like a fairly bleak Xmas for us due largely to Immigration continuing to sit on their hands regarding Olivia, I can't help but feel her case has become lost in the system but fear that any approach to them will result in her file slipping back to the tail end of the queue. I suppose since they use the same computer company to run their stuff as did the last census debacle I can point the finger at the real villain that has caused such a stressful delay.
Meanwhile we just live day to day spending as little as possible. When the "needy" in our shire get their Xmas alms organised by the Mayor it won't help my mood knowing that none of them are on less income than we are, not that I want any help at all as we're doing OK.
Perhaps it was only because people knew I was there but it felt like 90% of the people milling about were using their cellphone, thus just as smoking does causing Jimby to detour to avoid them.
This is merely a victim of fashion.
This was shortly before we started and I got a shot of the back of our new Mayor Ramon Jayo talking to the building audience.
