"I'm My Own Grandpa"

Many, many years ago when I was twenty-three.
I was married to a widow who was pretty as could be.
This widow had a grown-up daughter who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her and soon they too were wed
This made my dad my son-in-law and really changed my life
For now my daughter was my mother, 'cause she was my father's wife
And to complicate the matter, even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father of a bouncing baby boy
My little baby then became a brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle, though it made me very sad
For if he were my uncle, then that also made him brother
Of the widow's grownup daughter, who was of course my step-mother
Father's wife then had a son who kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild, for he was my daughter's son
My wife is now my mother's mother and it makes me blue
Because although she is my wife, she's my grandmother too
Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild
And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild
'Cause now I have become the strangest 'case you ever saw
As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa
I'm my own grandpa, I'm my own grandpa
It sounds funny, I know but it really is so
I'm my own grandpa

Bang on!
Every day, there's another story in the news about Auckland's housing problem. Usually, it's fuelled by a new report from a real estate agency, telling us house prices are again rising - New Zealand Herald

I just killed like a dozen carpenter ants and now I have no idea what I'm going to do with all these little tool belts.

The Imitation Game

An amazing movie, about an amazing man Alan Turing, played by actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Well worth a watch. Based on a true story, it tells the tale of Alan, who figures out how to crack the German code, during WWII.

Musicals I love them. The Phantom of the Opera​, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat​, Les Misérables​, Grease​, the list goes on.
But Cats. That one I just don't 'get'. At all. I've tried. I've even watched it repeatedly, but nope. I just don't like it!

Trying to remember a movie I saw years ago. I think it was called Blue something. Had something to do with a rest home, and people getting younger. Any ideas?

Not particularly friendly service upon arrival, made us wish we'd picked somewhere else! We mostly picked this place as they had a deal with free breakfast included, and it was certainly a lovely breakfast. Lovely large buffet style, and a lovely view of the harbour.

We had a great tour guide (man from the painting area of Weta Cave, and South African), who was funny, great with the kids, and a joy to chat with as we made our way around the studio. Awesome talks about how they make props, including seeing real costumes from various movies they've worked on. Really worth making the stop - we caught the bus out, and was very easy to find.
