National Folk Festival

I went to the NFF with Kate, Wing and Morgan. It was the first festival I have been to in a long time and camped and it was a great break. I will add some reviews to my lost on the internet site of the CDs I have purchase, though I have a few more to buy.

There are several videos, but this was one of my favourite songs.

clogged drain

Well, I came home and the washing machine had not finished. I presumed it had become unbalanced, so I put it though the spin again. Nothing happened. After some fiddling, I got it to restart the wash cycle on fast mode. But again it stopped. With a front loader you cannot open the door when it contains water. So I opened the inspection hatch to drain the water. At least this way I could get my clothes out. I saw that the hatch actually shows the pump. So I allowed it to run with the hatch open. Lots of water on the floor. Eventually I noticed a bit of bamboo, from the clothes basket, stuck in the impeller. I removed it. It all seems to be working now.

New Glasses

Well, my old pair date back to 1999. I have been meaning to get a new pair for some time, but two things stopped me. 1) All the current glasses, stylistically, are crap, and 2) I could not find my old optometrist. By chance I found the old script and hence once again I had her address. (Rosa M Klinger - 146 Wycombe Road Neutral Bay). So I have been there, spent over $1k on two pairs of glasses and now have an ugly, but fashionable pair of glasses. Even through there is only a small change in the script, my vision is is significantly improved. I have also noted that my left eye has better focus than my right. Maybe I need to swap the eye I use to take photos.

Dinner at Hooters

Some time ago, a friend suggested that we go to Hooters, Parramatta. I have never heard of it. He took my indifference to mean that I did not want to go. Recently Billy organized for a small group to go. So I had an evening of American food and entertainment. I did not take any photos of the food, but it was not even remotely hot. But it contained something my body reacted to for days. This was not overall a bad thing. The food itself was very oily. I was not much of a fan of the wings, but then again, I never am. My meal, the quesadilla, was simple, but strangely appealing and I enjoyed the food.
  • 911 Wings - 1.5 out of 10 on a hot scale.
  • Jalapenos - 1 out of 10, though I suspect them in the after effect stakes.
Oh, and they danced the nutbush.
