First, thanks to all who turned up today. We got the deck around the house finished, oiled weatherboards until we used up all the oil, planted some nikau, and spread lots of grass seed around. Tomorrow, we’ll be up there from 11, nailing bits into the roof and possibly shoveling gravel. All welcome.

We’ll be working up at the new house tomorrow, 10 am onwards, in Brooklyn. We’d love for people to come and do hard manual labour on our account. The house is trucking along, most of the walls are in place and we’ve even got things that are starting to look like roofs. There’s more joist …

Erf. Just back from Kiwiburn. More coherency later, and maybe pics, but: The Illuminati Temple went off. Lots of dancing, great tunes, no disasters, and I loved having a personal base in the middle of everything. Illuminati Shade Camp was a great place to sleep.
