Bicycle Race

There’s nothing like a dream about a strange bicycle race in an unknown suburb.

The three things I remember of the dream

1. I was a professional cyclist (could anything be further from the truth?)
2. The race started in a funny version of Manuka on top of Red Hill
3. We had to cycle through cafes…and kitchens…and parks….and on rooftops…

Don’t ask….

Scary Shower

Last night when I had a shower it proved to be a fairly scary experience, allow me to explain.

Before entering the bathroom I could hear footsteps on the roof…human footsteps (unless the local cats have lost half their legs)…whoever it was cleared off fairly quickly, so I suspect it was one of the local loonies.

When I entered the bathroom I went to lock the door, and it would not lock, it felt like someone was holding the door handle on the other side of the door just out of position so that it wouldn’t lock. A minute later it would lock…

During the shower (by which time I was semi-convinced there was someone in the house) the clock downstairs chimed…the first tone from that clock sounds like a human voice which scared me, but then I heard the rest of the chime and all was OK.

After the shower whilst getting dressed the rack hanging from the shower head slipped and made a large bang…needless to say it made me jump…just after that I felt something on my leg, I looked down and saw a big black thing on my leg, I jumped and shook it off and realised that it was a butterfly…by this time my heart was ready to stop beating…oh what a shower.

New visitor records on Samuel’s Blog

I just had a look at the statistics for this site and noticed that it has broken its records. It has already surpassed 1000 visitors for the month (quite an achievement when you consider the previous record for an ENTIRE month was 818 visitors) and the page views so far this month is on 4578, which is far in excess of the previous record of 2807.

Thankyou to all of you for reading and a special thankyou to all of you who have contributed.

Bus Enthusiast Website

I stumbled across an unusual and interesting website last week about Australian buses, Bus Australia, something I found interesting is that they seem to know more about the ACTION fleet than ACTION do. Including the fact that some of the new green buses (which I’m not a fan of) were originally detined for King Bros, but for one reason or another were never delivered, and were probably really cheap for ACTION as a result. The site also shows some of the old ACTION buses (the models before the current oldest models…I loved those buses…also shows some of the old leyland buses), and shows some ex-ACTION buses being used elsewhere.

It actually shows just about every bus from everywhere in the country…and even some ferries…well worth a look.
