Nana would put my face under the pillow... then press down... hard...












I learnt to breathe through my ears from an early age....









A skill that has served me well in later life.

after winning the 24 hour screaming contest 3 nights running, i spoke of stories about friends babies who changed behaviors by changing to formula as nothing really is available for babies that young for colic.

so at 11pm at night, i sort off, and drove for 30 minutes by the brother in law to a 24 hour chemist where i spent a hundred bucks on nuloc colic formula, and he slept for 6 hours strait.

considering he wouldnt sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time.

her mum couldnt breast feed her due to colic or a food allergic apparently either, probably genetic.

Any one know if this has been done on a bike?
Might be Philths next challenge!
Pretty exclusive group if only a 100 people have done it, maybe never on a bike, just asking, not interested in doing it myself, just curious

Who is this mysterious "ol mate" that I keep hearing about?
Had two customers in today who referenced "ol mate" on both how to do a job and also how much it will cost! Of course I told both of them to tell their story walking, and get said "ol mate " to sort it, sounds like neither job would be an issue to him
For me, neither job was an easy money making proposition,and one had the potential to get real nasty,so.......step away
These days you have to work smart, sometimes you are better to sit on your arse than take on some shit job that will just bite you over and over

I hear that! Can't believe some of the prices my competitors are doing at the moment. Must be desperate or something! Fortunately, I'm in the position that I can walk away if it isn't worth while.

Business is business. If your competitors are cutting their own throats then you don't have to do it for them. All you have to do is out live them.
