Last M.A.M.E standing part 1: Almigo has a plan

Yes I've decided to embark on my most ambitious project to date (well aside from changing a rocker cover gasket on a WRX, on a scale of ...

The Fiverr experiment

Curious to see if a small investment in advertising could net me far more (read: millions, nay billions!) in returns, I decided to take up an offer on Fiver.


Could just $8 (after conversions and fees) really skyrocket my second hand car loving website Driveanotherday.com into the stratosphere?
There was 15 million possible reasons saying maybe..

Cheering on the magic disk

My wife came to me a couple of days ago with a phone problem - the battery on her Samsung Galaxy S5 was holding as much charge as a dead Rhino and if I had a sec could I see if I could fix it.
So I leapt at the challenge, failed miserably and eventually bought a bit of tech to do the job for me.

Enter: The Magic disk.

No wait, my disk has nothing to do with this dog...

My son the town planner

Well it was only a matter of time - after watching Dad drift around corners and most of the time not take out any barriers, save the princess from the Orcs of Orcdale and grab the power up to win the game, my little bloke has started to develop a keen interest in the occasional video game.



And while most of the stuff I play is kept well away from his five year old paws (I don't think he's ready to roam the nuclear wastelands of the Fallout Universe til at least 16..) I have dug out a couple of classic kid friendly games from my own past that I figured he would well and truly gotten into. Everything old is new again in the eyes of a five year old as he takes on the role of both town planner and golf course designer...

The adventures of the millionaire mower

Usually myself and mowers don't go well - I either spend too much on a mower that doesn't do much at all or spend too much time trying to coax life back into free mowers who would much rather be left for dead.



Until this week when I managed to snap up a decent 4 stroke for a bargain price of $50. From a couple who I suspect are actually multi millionaires..

Almigo's house of meat and stuff.

Last night I had a truly amazing meal on the Gold Coast Waterfront at a delicious seafood eatery. The beer was crisp, the garlic prawns to the die for, the steak looked a little different to what I was used to but was still tasty and dessert was decidedly decadent.

Excuse me, what is this?


My only niggle? Given that I don't spend much time doing super fine dining (last night's effort was because I won a voucher, this blog really hasn't generated enough revenue to purchase some small fries so far) I struggled to understand roughly some of what was going on...

Oh spaghetti bolognese, you beautiful bastard

Now you'd think that by now, 19 years since it became the first thing I ever learnt to cook (I'm not counting sausages here because it required very little effort) that I'd be sick of Spaghetti Bolognese - but you'd be wrong.

The inspiration for tonight's post


I freakin love spaghetti bolognese. And I'll happily eat it twice a month until the day I die...

The things on Gumtree that won't cost you a dollar.

So today I'm singing the praises of Gumtree again. Because I'm writing this from the corner of my brand new office, most of which I got for free. Thanks Gumtree!
