Secret Ambitions of an Oceanmaster

Recently, every time I log onto a certain ocean I get a very nasty four letter word tell from a pirate I shall just refer to here as ‘Pesky’. He seems to have my work schedule memorized, but also seems to find me within seconds of logging on even when I’m filling in for another Oceanmaster. I don’t mind pirates sending me ‘Ahoy!’ tells when I’m on, in fact I very much enjoy that. But the tells this particular pirate sends me gives me chills and causes me to grind my teeth. Looking through recent logs I find:

Peskypirate prods Hera. Blog.

Peskypirate tells ye, "Blog blog.

Peskypiate tells ye, "/e pokes. Blog :o"

Peskypirate tells ye, "BLOG"

I am well behind on my blog this year. My good intentions of monthly updates have fallen behind recently due to lack of time. Autumn has been busy here and while most of the calves I’ve been grazing have gone on to greener pastures (literally; I ran out of grass due to lack of rain), there still has been lots to do.

My current home project is to try and become more self sufficient. I’ll never achieve true self sufficiency; I like my creature comforts and need to buy in luxuries such as chocolate, coffee and tea! However, given I live on a 10 acre block of land (approximately 4 hectares), I’ve got the space to be growing enough vegetables to keep me from needing to buy any.

Salty Sue

Sadly, my existing vege patch had been sorely neglected by the previous owners and has been in desperate need of mulch and fertilizer. Happily, I know a lady who keeps a lot of horses. And horses are fantastically good at producing fertilizer. Good job too, as I'm intending on expanding the vege garden as well as intending to grow soft fruits. And so, this autumn has seen me shoveling lots of barnacle rather than writing in my blog!

Chickens will be my next project. I’m hoping to get a few free ranch chickens to keep me stocked with eggs, but for that I shall need to make a hen house and that demands a lot more research on my part. (Anyone who has ever seen me carp knows I’m hopeless with a hammer!)

Finally, for those who have ever asked me for a Hera doll, I’ve a forum competition up that gives you the opportunity to win one. All you have to do is write a song parody for me – I’m not even demanding that you sing it*! Easy, eh? Go and give it a go!

*Although, you can if you like! It would be rather nice to have a few parody songs that I could listen to while I work in the garden!

Check the inside lining for a serial number. Fake <a herf="http://brandcheapsale.com/Burberry-watch-s170/">burberry watch</a> will not have an 8-digit serial number stamped on the leather lining. Authentic burberry watch will have this number hidden on the inside of the shoe, next to the shoe-size. The inside of real burberry watch are lined with leather and have a stamp with the words "burberry Made in uk" visible on the heel of the watch lining

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post.

his words and discount soccer cleats were subjected to instant analysis and querulous criticism. The audience of 70 million Americans gathered to hear white soccer shoes was inherited by a small band of network commentators and self-appointed analysts, the majority of whom expressed in one way or another their hostility to what nike mercurial victory had to say. It was obvious that their minds were made up in advance. Those who recall the fumbling and groping that followed President Johnson’s dramatic disclosure of his intention not to seek adidas f50 adizeros have seen these men in a genuine state of nonpreparedness. http://www.soccershoesclearance.com/ LJP
