### Buddha's head and fairy lights

It has been an interesting day and this afternoon we had a family barbeque under the canopy I made (showers all day so it was useful), it was a good BBQ I think although we did discover that the gas BBQ had as good as run out and in fact did run out during the cooking. And the instant disposable BBQ’s were in fact rubbish which might explain why they were dead cheap. This did not ruin the event but the masses did start to stir a bit because it took rather a long time to cook everything. Hopefully OK but you know what family are like they are kind and would not say, well that was rubbish.

Apparently it was father’s day today………… AH that was a bit of a surprise but luckily for me the family got dad a huge silver Buddha head for the garden so he was well happy and we left him saying “A Gottle of Gear”  and reading the Alphabet “A Gee C Gee E Eeeeefff Gee Gayh I Jay Gay L M N O Gee etc” . I still don’t think dad knows its fathers day yet but he cant remember his birthday either so that’s OK.

It is getting late so will keep this very short tonight and go and watch fairy lights…

I was trying to think of BBQ music and for some weird reason the only song I could think of was this one, does this make me mad?

1. WeLL, you know what they always say: 346,184 out of 519,276 ain't bad.

1. That sounds very clever Mr ESB. I will ponder this but feel it will scramble my brain. I did wonder if you were counting fairy lights. One thing I have learn about fairy lights is a few is rubbish so it is either none or 346,184 at least. Although by the time you have 519,276 it can cause problems with the electricity supply.

2. I wanted a ratio of numbers that went along with the lyric "2 out of 3 ain't bad", and then semi-randomly chose a large 6 digit number that would be easy to calculate its 150 percent value without involving any carries of one 3/2 ratio scale up interfering with another, so I could do the math entirely in my head.
34->51
6->9
18->27
4->6

3. Very impressive, there once was a time when my brain would do things like that, but I became Rob and so my brain has been re-adjusted by my cyber-self.

2. Why is dad speaking like that? Have I missed something?

1. He was practising being a ventriloquist, In Britain the saying "A Gottle of Gear" or "Gottle o'geer is a classic Ventriloquist's joke. it is what happens if you say A Bottle of Beer without moving your lips..... It also can confuse many in other parts of the world who just think the British are mad....

Which in many cases is also true.

3. I completely forgot it was fathers day yesterday! Luckily for me, so did my dad :P

1. It is easily done, and luckily most fathers don't have a clue what day it is anyway.....
