Egg, chill out.
Arky I just discovered your video. That’s bloody rotten luck, mate. Was it just the shed and car or was there more damage?
I’ve worked in kitchens when the Italian family wanted to kill each other.
Mother, ultimately saved the day. Mother dragging down the son to keep that carving knife from his sister. It was mental!
Cooking and making pasta with the sauce was therapy with the lady….I loved that lady. She was a blessing. The family arguments was bonkers.
And now I know how to cook the ultimate pasta sauce.
Yeah, C’mon man, Cat ladies are cool.
This blog has one major rule: The No Dickheads Policy.
This policy is enforced.
Everyone else is welcome.
egg, you are on notice. Continue to post comments in the same vein that you have been doing today, and you will be temporarily blocked or even permanently banned from this blog.
Megan, I have no idea why your comments are ending up in moderation. I have checked the tags and there is no reason for the block.
Up your game, people. Monkey pox isn’t going to just come and get you. You’ve got to make an effort. Or ten.

I have limited time these days and made a considered decision to seriously cut back on my online participation and contributions.
Came over herw for one specific reason – to commiserate with Arky’s loss of the Model A.
As to which blogs I read and comment on- it is absolutely none of your business, you thin-shelled, deluded bossy boots. Free world and all that.
No problems, Adam. I thought it might just be the fact I hadnt commented for a while.
I also have a new phone that is proving to be a wickedly interfering piece of overdesigned tech that has performed at least one weird WTF phone prank on me each day.
[Megan, it may be your phone with some security features. Whenever you are able to, test from another device and see if it gets through. It was puzzling me and I couldn’t work out why your comments are getting blocked. – Admin]

Arky, it was heartbreaking to see what happened to your pride & joy, just devastating.
What caused the shed fire, was the possum smoking in bed?
Go ahead, dickhead!

Matthew McConaughey took over the White House on Tuesday to lecture Americans on guns. It wasn’t all bad, but the bad stuff was HORRIBLE! We take it down point by point. Also, pro-abortion extremists are on the rampage, and you won’t see it on the news. And the FBI failed once again at stopping pedos.

Thanks for the link.
It will get a run.
Arky, that’s truly tragic, man – commiserations.
Every time I did a fire investigation I could feel the pain of the resident’s loss as a palpable presence.
From what I could see from your short video, the fire was discovered and knocked down pretty quickly – to the credit of whoever first responded to it.
Excellent rendition on a nicely tuned piano.
Music takes you places.
*******I played “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” at a station in Japan and many people stopped to listen.
Great post. Thanks, Steve.
Fireys were magnificent. They saved the the house, and aside from the garage, we only had to deal with smoke damage in the rest of the house.
It’s months ago now, I only made the vid so that I can move on with other projects and those who view my tiny channel can know why the car is on hold for time being.
Hey, Arky. After the transverse do you have to plane that timber longitudinally?
Have a laugh.

Scrub planing across to knock down the high spots, then plane with the grain, then progressive waves of sanding.
I’m not really a wood guy, but that is the plan.

Sorry, Ragu. Just catching up. You’ve already posted the PJW – Gay Pride Month. I quickly scroll through to avoid double-posting but didn’t spot it.
Good luck to you.
I would have levelled it off and made a track for my router. Then after a couple of days thinking about it, going through the scrap metal laying about, give up.
It’s all good, Kaysee
Winston, this blog is open to information from a range of topics. Serious, funny or in-between. Readers can pick and choose topics that interest them.
When available, I try to paste in some info with the links (like the blurb below a video or parts of an article) so that those who are busy can quickly read the comment, and those who are interested can click the link and read/watch the entire article/video.
Self-censorship to avoid causing any legal hassles for the blog.
Arky, I got the impression from your video that it was a smaller fire, confined to your shed, and it ruined your Model A. That, by itself, was bad enough. Thankfully, the fireys saved the house.
To have a hobby project that has been your labour-of-love end up in smoke is saddening. But it is to your credit that, instead of giving up, you are prepared to start over again. A Phoenix-car rising from the ashes.
Good Luck, Arky, with the restoration, whenever you decided to begin it.
Good stuff, others have been posting this stuff for years, but it never gets any traction. Facts are haram in the religion of Global Warming.
The BOM is unashamedly on board, and their minions get new jobs and overseas trips as rewards.

One of the core tenets of Western civilisation — that is, the freedom, rights and privacy of the individual — is under threat from both forces internal and external.
External forces include the authoritarian rivals of the West, who see individualism as a threat to their rule.
Internal forces include those so-called “elites” seeking to mimic and establish similar authoritarian systems within Western nations as a means to remove dampen the sovereignty of the citizenry and thus destroy checks and balances to their corrupt use of power.
Arguably, the most potent threat against individual rights to emerge in recent years has been the social credit system within Communist China.
In an ironic twist, it utilises the same tool to suppress individual freedom that once was touted to be its greatest benefactor — the Internet.
The Chinese Communist Party regime holds unprecedented access to its citizens’ digital identity; every website visited, every link clicked, and every text sent — all is monitored by the government’s mass surveillance apparatus.
Those who seem to be too deviant [read: free thinkers] or seem to defy the regime have their social credits deducted and hence suffer a whole host of various penalties.
The social credit system is the most ambitious experiment of authoritarianism — one perfected to completely rid a billion people of their autonomy and keep their minds under siege.
Worse still, we are witnessing the gradual introduction of similar systems within our own Western societies — of course, under the guise of ‘public interest.’
The pathway to a social credit system in the West has been enhanced by COVID-19, with measures such a ‘vaccine’ passport system deployed by erstwhile democratic governments under the hoary old mantra of ‘keeping us safe’ (from a virus with 0.27 per cent infection fatality rate).
These ‘vaccine’ passports were essentially a prototype of the coming digital ID system.
In a recent interview published on the Rumble channel, The Vigilant Fox, Dr Mike Yeadon, who was the former chief scientist and vice-president of Pfizer’s allergy and respiratory research unit, railed against the notion of digital ID systems.
Yeadon has been outspoken about the measures adopted to “fight” COVID-19 and how those measures have and could continue to lead to a loss of freedom, life and liberty.
Of digital ID systems, he rightly said:
The race towards a digital ID system — backed by the World Economic Forum — is building around the world, including in Australia.
But, as yet, there have been few public pronouncements about plans to implement social credit systems linked to digital ID systems.
Perhaps that’s because those in power know there will be pushback.
However, there are some outliers in the West who either have implemented or are implementing social credit systems in their countries right now.
Recently, the Italian state of Bolongna announced its own plans of implementing a social credit system to reward ‘good’ behaviour, to the protest and concerns of many.
In Germany, a similar system is already emerging nationwide.
In the UK, such a system may have already been implemented.
And in Australia, a social credit system is undeniably in the offing in the Dan Andrews’ Socialist Republic of Victoria, with recent explosive reports confirming that a taxpayer-funded unit had been set up to monitor various aspects of the lives of Victorian citizens, including social media posts and credit card purchases along with a range of other data purchased from private companies.
A social credit system is a critical juncture that threatens one of the foundations of Western civilisation itself.
History is in the making, but not on the path of progress unless, we — the good citizens — choose to exercise our rights and act fast.
