    With how hot this week has been, I have been so tempted to get a frozen or cold drink but since I had one on Sunday, I'm holding strong. Now I have to get through the rest of the week and weekend. My smoothie is a given so I'm not counting that.

    Lately, I have seen how "little" purchases can add up and it's shocking.
    I could use as beer as cold as how some people at work don't respect my practice, but I'll settle for some lemon and mint infused water that frigid.

    That also sounds good though. I hope it will work for you.

    Nice that people are taking the time to print and post these around. I have been seeing this shared on social media as well.

    Annoying that these have to be posted though.

    My water was nice and cold, and my money stayed in my pocket for something else.

    There's probably roads like this all over the world. I went on some interesting "roads" in Australia. Is yours a driveway or road? This is an actual road. This is a small section of it. It's about a kilometer or so long.
    It a road, leading to the spot of my yet-to-be-built house!!
    The farm has been in neglect for years, with thick undergrowth. Wild jungle trees have invaded and has grown 20ft high.
    At least the old fruit trees are bearing fruits.. free of pesticides..

    It's cheaper to lay two cement strips than a 8foot wide surface..it'll be good enough for any non-4WD vehicle and medium size lorry/trucks to pass thru.
    The funds saved, will be used for culverts and side drainage. Critical for slopes

    Have you looked into permaculture at all?

    There's lots of resources online.

    Sounds like your farm would be perfect for this type of farming.

    I was also asking because we have friends in Australia who have a driveway like that as well. As you mentioned a lot cheaper.

    Our farm driveway is just gravel. No plans to pave or anything. Way too expensive.

    The USA is in a very bad place at the moment.

    The UK isn't much better I should point out.

    Not entirely sure how France is but I know that immigration everywhere is a big topic currently.

    I don't blame you for going new when given the chance. Sometimes you have to take the plunge.

    There is still a part of me that's tempted to get an XZ3. As much as I had certain gripes, I did like the XZ2. I just felt that LG was offering a bit more in the G7/V35 to what I wanted.
    I have little complaints about the phone.

    Other people have bigger complaints about small things (to me but big to them).

    I don't think any phone is perfect but I think this one is definitely a good one and I see as a starting point for them to improve on.

    I'd like to see upgrades to the Cinema Pro app and some minor changes to the camera app.

    They're getting rid of the What's New app (finally!) and Audio Recorder (though I don't use this it could be handy).

    The finger print scanner could be better and I'd prefer a larger battery but other than that I'm happy.

    Thanks for the introducing me to permaculture, a new word for me. It does read like old fashion village farming without a fiefdom!!
    We're starting slow, getting the access road, clearing the field and old terraces.
    Once that is done, we'll figure the spots for small cabins, rest huts, workshop, storehouse etc.
    We're looking into solar panels for electricity.
    The main problem would be water. Rain water collection and a small stream won't be enough

    We hired a mixer to do up the lower portion of the road. Half day work. When the cement dries up, I'll be driving my small car up!!

    Permaculture is a lot more than just old fashioned village farming. :P There is some that in it. One of the creators (they're Australians) spent a lot of time in France looking at methods here.

    To me permaculture just makes sense from both a farm design perspective and overall farming method.

    There's an ethics to permaculture as well - Earth Care (soil, plants, water, animals), People Care (you, your neighbors and community), Fair Share (sharing surplus with other people and animals)

    The other aspect is about reducing the amount of work you have to do as a farmer. Hence the word perma, short for permanent. The culture part is both agriculture and cultural shift in thinking.

    If you want some good resources at all I will happily point you in the right direction. We've found out recently that there's stuff going around claiming to be permaculture but isn't.

    I know you're just at the beginning and have lots of work to do but if you're interested you might find permaculutre a good way of doing things. It's the way we're doing our farm.

    Darn... After more than a month of not using my Charge2, and having the updates on my nokia 8.1... The two still are not on speaking terms!
    I would have thought Fitbit would have solved the pairing bugs by now.

    Don’t be too convinced it’s the Fitbit. I had nothing but trouble with a Nokia 6, 6.1 and 7.1 when it came to Bluetooth. My Ionic has never had pairing issues like it did with the Nokias. Surprisingly, Samsungs were hit or miss but usually good. Sonys and iPhones are “buttah”.

    So for something a bit lighter in topic than politics or mobiles I thought I would enlighten you to some things you may not know about Europe and in this case specific to France (though Germany/Austria fits into this as well).

    That is the word F**K is not really a swear word here. In fact it's practically meaningless. Doesn't exist in the French language or officially as a French word so is not viewed or thought of as anything. Bearing in mind that they do know it's a swear word in English.

    So what does this mean exactly and why am I telling you this?

    Well, if you come to France you can turn on some music, watch TV or hear music in a shop, restaurant, cafe, etc (you get the point) and there's no censorship any time of the day.

    As you can imagine this can upset some more sensitive people from North America or UK...

    The word F**K is thought to derive from German and is not considered much of a swear word there. In Austria there's a town called F**KING which consistently has it's sign stolen. I recommend reading the WIKI on the town it's quite amusing.

    So with that in mind I'm posting a picture of a treat display from a French cafe. Don't worry I blurred the words but to give you an idea of where this is located. It's in a large national bagel sandwich shop. To add to this the register had some advertising on it as well saying "F**k Burger Queen". Yes Burger King is here in France...

    Usually this has some sort of sweet things in it. You can tell they know what the word means but don't care.

    Weird to have 2 orders wrong back to back. Fortunately, I will be getting credit for both things but still. Why? I know that human error is real but back to back from places that don't usually mess up is odd.

    Also got to work, and my papers are misplaced on my table. Not only that, they took my pen away, gave me another one and decided to log into my computer. Really?! It was easy to figure out who used my computer but it's just weird.

    The day will improve. This I know.
