大変お待たせしました!帰国してから、約3週間の月日が経ってしまいましたが、実は、この間、コンピューターが使えないでいたのです・・・。デビちゃんのコンピューターは使えたので、メールはウェブ上で読むことはできたのですが、日本語が使えないため、返信ができず、いろいろな人にご心配をおかけしました。もう、大丈夫ですので、じゃんじゃんメールください!(笑)

                                  

さて、私のコンピューターがなぜ使えなくなっていたかというと、デビちゃんてば、私とザックが日本でのほほんとしている間に、サプライズでかなりすごい勢いでリフォームを進めていたのでした。大きなところでは、キッチンと、私達のベッドルームについているバスルームがリフォームされ、他にも押入れ2つがすっかり違う姿になっていました。

 

帰国前に、どんなキッチンが将来欲しいか聞かれていたので、私の希望通りにちゃんとできており、感心感心。バスルームも、私の好みのようにできていました。(これは以前から話し合っていたため。)まだ、完全に出来上がったわけではありませんが、もう、使える状態なので、良しとしましょう。

 

デビちゃんが、リフォームの写真をきちんとホームページにアップしたいから、もうちょっと待ってくれと言うので(どういう意味だろう?リフォームを全部きちんと終わらせてからかな?)、残念ながら、写真は載せられませんが、近々アップされると思うので、楽しみにしていてください。前に遊びに来たことがある方達は、その変化にきっと驚かれると思いますよ!

 

さて、河口湖に行ってから、何も報告していないので、(帰国前数日は、荷物作りでそれどころではなかった・・・!)今日はその辺の報告と写真をご覧ください。

 

河口湖の次の日は、松ねぇと一緒に、天丼を食べに伊豆まで行ってきました!それが目的だったのにも係わらず、天丼の写真撮るの忘れちゃったのですが・・・。見かけは普通の天丼なのですが、たれがとってもおいしかった!その直前に行ったつり橋の写真です。この写真を見ていると、どんなところに架かった橋かわかりませんが、次の写真で、結構凄い崖にかかっているのがわかると思います・・・。高所恐怖症の私は、渡るとき、下を見れませんでした、はい。ビデオではたぶん、下を撮った記憶がありますが、ビデオだけ下を向けて撮った記憶があります・・・。(苦笑)

 

 

 

 

 

そして、その後、天城越えをしたときに、とってもおいしいソフトクリームに出会いました。結構、天城越えのあたりは、わさびが有名なのはご存知の方も多いと思いますが、わさびソフトクリームといえば、緑色のソフトクリームが一般的。でも、このお店だけは、オーダーしてから、目の前でわさびをすりおろし、そのおろしたての生わさびを普通のバニラソフトにのせる、という方式をとっておりました。そしてこれがとっても美味!見たときは半信半疑だったのですが、まずければ、わさびを捨てればいいや、と思い、試してみて大正解でした。天城越えの道の駅に行くことがあったら、ぜひお試しあれ!!!

 

 

 

その後、イチゴ狩りへ向かいました。もう終わりの時間だったのですが、どうにかぎりぎり入れてもらい、30分、思い切りいちごを食べまくりました。最初はあまり乗り気じゃなかったザックも、いちごのおいしさが分かった途端に、うるさいほど、くれ、くれ、と言いまくり、結局10個ほどは食べたと思います。

  

 

そして、それから家へ向かい、東名高速は順調で、7時前には家に着くことができました。おかげで、おいしいカキフライを食べた後、近場の温泉にまで行ってしまいました!ザックは初温泉!でも、残念ながら、さすがにお風呂場にカメラを持ち込むことはできなかったので、あしからず。入り口の写真で、温泉を満喫してください。この温泉てば、うちから歩いて15分のところにあるのですが、すっかり旅館のようで、なんでもそろっており、レストランまであって、1日中でもそこですごせるくらい、施設が整っております。・・・の割には、大人たったの700円とお手ごろ。もうちょっと早く来てれば良かった・・・。いとこは遅番ではないときは、ほとんど毎日ここに通いつめています。今度帰国した時には、デビちゃんも連れて行ってあげよ~っと。デビちゃんは温泉大好き人間なので。

Dishwasher westinghouse 480 2H PDF Print E-mail
Written by David Soede   
Saturday, 03 May 2008

For Sale on ebay :

Approx. 20 year old dishwasher, Westinghouse 480. White in colour but scuffed and scratched, also has a small chip in top left corner plastic now from removal (doesn't affect functionality). Although 20 years old it hasn't been used much - we've used it <10 times in 4 years and previous owners washed dishes by hand as well except for their large meals around christmas holidays. Runs perfectly, seal is fine, no leaks, no visible internal corrosion. Single water inlet (cold), and obviously a waste hose out as well. Just plugs into a standard 240V AC GPO (power point) - doesn't need to be electrician wired up.

It's not going to be someone's pride and joy in a new kitchen, but it works great and could be useful for a cheap granny flat conversion or replacing an old dishwasher in a rental place or installing in a garage or boatshed or something. Reasonably quiet but not silent when running. Definitely worth saving from landfill. Inspections welcome. No Reserve!

Due to size and weight of the dishwasher it's pickup only, I can give you a hand loading into a station wagon or trailer.

Dimensions: 840(H) x 595(W) x 600 (D). Approx. 30mm vertical gap under top plate down rear, with a cavity at bottom rear approx. 60mm deep i.e. so tap / plumbing can be connected and sit at bottom rear whilst dishwasher is pushed against wall from front.

Please check my other auctions as well for more bargains! Good Luck!

Bamboo surfboard 6'4" x 19.5" x 2.5" PDF Print E-mail

Bamboo surfboard for sale on ebay:

6'4" x 19.5" x 2.5" SPS (Stewart Pontin Shaped) semi-fish lightweight epoxy resin / polystyrene closed-cell foam / bamboo veneer / vacuum bagged surfboard with nose guard and tail gorilla grip. 5 x FCS fin plugs for 2 x thruster options, 2 x twin fin options and quad fin setup options. I really liked the twin and quad options, loose and skatey and fast.

I loved this board when I picked it up 3 years ago. Unfortunately, as a 6'3" mid-thirties surfer I'm not getting any lighter and this board is now too small for me to ride (just) as I head north of 90 kgs . . . when I was 80-85kgs the board worked really well, and some friends around 70 to 80kgs rode it and loved it too. But 95kgs is too heavy for a small wave semi-fish board, it's too hard work in slop. Still goes well in 4 to 6 foot clean waves, and I've even pushed it hard in 8 foot heavy reef breaks, but I have other boards in the quiver which work better for those conditions.

I would say this board works best for up to 85kgs surfers in small to overhead waves,it's not a full fish so can handle a little larger than a pure fish of those sizes could. It has a flattish rocker and slightly wider one-foot-off measurements compared to a standard surfboard. Being vacuum-bagged epoxy / styrene / timber veneer (bamboo) construction it is very strong, lightweight, impact resistant and higher reflex (returns from flexed to non-flexed shape quickly, gives boost in turns, snappy and responsive not dull and absorbent) compared to a PU board (polyurethane foam blank with fibreglass and polyester resin). Sunny Garcia won a world title on the boards a few years back, they work!

As you can see in the bottom pictures, there are 3 dings. I haven't bothered getting them repaired as they don't affect performance (they are not structural) and being closed cell the polystyrene foam does not absorb water like older PU boards do. I simply put some clear contact tape over them and kept surfing. There are a few options with the dings - a repair is just a matter of getting some epoxy resin and brushing over the deck and rail cracks, and taping around the nose ding to build up the resin in the ding a bit. if you were really keen you could add a bit of chop-strand glass to the nose repair but it's not necessary. Or you could squeeze some silicon into the dings to waterproof them and leave it at that. Or you could put a bit of contact tape over them (I've left the one on the nose but removed the others to show them better) and keep surfing for years as I did.

Please check out my other auctions for more quality bargains - thanks for looking and good luck!

The EOS 5 is the world's first 35mm SLR camera with Eye Controlled Focus. The camera has five focusing points (||+||).
