It drives differently to a normal car? Joy stick? Xbox controller? Voice activation? Cool

1.21 Gigawatts might be a bit much for my 100 kilowatt battery!

Our autumn has had the driest start in a decade. The thirty degree temps will last until at least next weekend. It's hot at night too.

Been sailing twice a week for a couple of days. Rain's gone away and the weather's perfect on the far northern great barrier reef.

Couple of months of cyclone season and with all this heat all over the place you'd have expected more activity by now.

They could be right. I was'nt around a couple of thousand years ago. (although sometimes it feels like it)

I should also point out that this sort of weather at this time of year is not all that uncommon down here.

Ferkin oath. The lardfellow and I attended the Windies Test 20 months ago (early Dec 2015). I took only shorts and t-shirts (luckily I wore jeans down on the plane). It was farkin freezing (12C). Thankfully one of lardy's mates lived near Bellerive and lent us jackets.

We caught up with Mr Dog as well. He was sensibly dressed.

Yep. I can remember snow on Mt Wellington on Christmas Day. Similarly, Christmas day last year was 35c. To paraphrase Forrest Gump. Tassie weather is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

I reckon it was that cold for the Saffie test last year but it is entirely possible the my uncontrollable shivering was due to the Australian batting performance.
