Today is still blowing hard, but not as hard as the past few days. After doing the APANSA filter change (No exploding bombs in North Korea detected yet) I had to do my twelve day check on our hydroponics garden. I love going in there as the smell of the tomatoes is intense and it’s nice and warm and humid. It’s a really good place to go and read your book with your shirt off for an hour or two. Pretty much all our fresh food finished weeks ago. Some, including the tomatoes and oranges were spoilt before they even got here. We are growing all sorts of things such as lettuce, peas’, tomatoes, spring onions, herbs, cucumbers, silver beet and many others. The building used to be the old Aurora lab joined to some other unidentified building both dating back to the 1960’s At least your old lab is being put to good use George !!

After lunch the wind dropped off and it turned out to be quite a good day. I got quite a bit done on the Hag today. It seems like everybody is talking about this week’s foreign movie on tonight. (They are always enjoyed by all, thank you Luc)
It’s called 101 Reykjavik and the plot is as follows;
Thirty-year-old Hlynur still lives with his mother and spends his days drinking, watching porn and surfing the net while living off unemployment checks. A girl is interested in him, but he stands back from commitment. His mother's Spanish flamenco teacher, Lola, moves in with them for Christmas. On New Year's Eve, while his mother is away, Hlynur finds out Lola is a lesbian, but also ends up having sex with her. He soon finds out he and his mother are sharing more than a house. Eventually he must find out where he fits into the puzzle, and how to live life less selfishly
