Got to attach my bookshelves to the wall, and hide my horror DVDs. Apart from that, my house has passed its safety check :D

Very nice Joolz. Any idea when you will be getting it?

Well done, that's another step closer.

That really is good news! :D

What you need to do with the horror DVDs is put new covers on them with really boring titles. Like Vetinari does with his books on camouflage. ;)

Just imagine though, the kid who decides that "different paint drying speeds" sounds like a fascinating DVD, or has to do a school project about "The Brassica Vegetable Crop Rotation Method circa 1939"
Or is horrendously dyslexic so just guesses at which DVD to watch!

You need to know the kid. Find out what they don't like, or think is totally not cool, and use that. Or get a lockbox and wear the key around your waist in a hidden belt, which should work even with the dyslexic kids.

Nice bike. Funny, the only Kawasakis you ever see around here are the so called "crotch rockets". Prefer the classic designs myself.

Couple things made me smile,

Grabbed a new keyboard. (came with a mouse too) not to fond of wireless, but since the problem with the last one was a loose cord, can't really complain much. :D It has a calculator button. (yes i'm easily impressed)

Just hit 400 subscribers on youtube. Should probably plan now to do something for 500, but have no clue what.

The author of the story my last video was based on complimented me on it. Was surprised, and honored.

Well done. :D :D
Never realised how important bracing the bookshelves to the wall was til I saw Harry , who can't walk yet , managing to climb shelves :shock: :shock:
