Not so much something that made me happy as much as something that made me laugh:

BBC's Nicholas Barber has this to say in his review on the new Batman vs Superman movie:

Quote
Here [Batman] at last is the sadistic, fascistic, half-crazed vigilante that comics fans have been waiting for... Superman doesn’t do much except frown in a constipated sort of way, and then disappear into the sky. Much of his dialogue consists of sonic booms

The goat is good. You will be able to sell her milk, and knit shawls.

But be careful, she may eat everything that comes her way, such as a treasure map.

Bobby is a cute name!

I'm not a fan of goat milk because of a bad experience when I was a kid. My aunt got goat milk from her neighbour, but one day the goat escaped from the garden and got into a field full of brussel sprouts. The milk then tasted exactly like sprouts... Not good on my cereal!! So just be warned - strong flavoured food affects the milk!!

I think I need to overcome the negative association though because my friend showed me how to make fresh goats cheese recently and it's so much easier than I thought and tastes great!

ah, we won;t have milk. we will only get one, and it will be a small one. its main 'purpose' will be keeping the grass lawn tidy.

Spent a few hours in the workshop welding up the chassis for a new 5" gauge wagon.
Nice to see some bits come together.....

My car passed it's MOT. And since I sorted out my insurance renewal last week, I'm now officially roadworthy for 12 months (or rather 6 months until my tax is due).

Technically last night, but it's still making me happy today: while lying in the bath, admiring the krakens, I realised that, being the most brainy of all detectives, Sherlock Holmes was really a cephaloplod.

Bought a very rare (but run-down) Märklin SZ970 tinplate railcar.
Got it at less than half the price for units in this condition.
Refurbishing did not take too long.
Someone hat removed the rear wheels and put a new rear axle in front of the old one to shorten the wheelbase. The prop was damaged, driving shaft missing, loco wheels were fitted (with counterweights), the whole body and latticework was bent.
The clockwork was full of dirt but still running. It just needed a good clean and a few drops of oil.

Had an enjoyable time fixing it.
I put it back into its original condition with matching wheels, new (old) prop,...
Nice to see the old toy run again.

Here´s a pic of a similar one:


I fixed it but will not repaint. this would spoil the patina and all the dents and scratches tell a story.

Went to the garden centre with my daughter. Bought twelve small tomato plants, four big bags of earth (the soil where I live is pretty poor and sandy), some very sturdy folding crates and some other stuff.

Got to the checkout and pointed out to the boy that there were four of those big bags, but didn't really check on what he was doing with the barcode scanner.

Loaded things into the car and gave the receipt a quick look over.

Three bags of earth… no sturdy folding crates.

Total saving of the things not totted up: about €50.  Grin

Good to see you are still around Lady Ava (or not so round as the case may be...  Wink ), been a while since I've seen you posting here. This makes me happy also.  Smiley



So my "Happy-Happy-Joy-Joy" for today is that I think one of my neighbours has moved out of the street (or is in the process of) as I spotted a removals company van outside the house a couple of days ago, their door wide open and all the curtains taken down at the windows. Also no lights in their house for last 24hrs.

"They" being the neighbours who earned my ire and focus of my sociopathic side, due to the snotty passive aggressive note they left under my car wiper blade last Christmas.

A pity - I wasn't even trying yet...   Grin  HEH, HEH, HEH, HEEeeeehhhhh!!!......

I second on the nice feeling of seeing Lady A back, it's good to see long time members come back and visit and it's always good seeing others happy.

Today went to the Moscow festival of Star Wars, got an autograph of Boba Fett.

I have a smart kid. He is being recognized in a ceremony for havinging one of the top seventh grade scores on the ACT in the state, which is a test high schoolers take for college admissions. Seventh grade kids are selected by the Duke University Talent Search program to take it.  It is going to open up opportunities for him, such as summer programs, possible scholarships, and who knows what else... I am so proud of him!

ForestB, what grand news - I can see the pride from here!

My good stuff - delivered a slightly belated birthday present to a friend a couple of hours down the freeway. A mountain dulcimer (the next 20 years worth of presents in one lot!). She loved it, and when wasn't playing it sat and looked at it with a silly grin on her face! It's a grand thing when a present hits the mark! Grin

Went to the first night of a magic show that's on for the season in Blackpool and one of the illusions being used is one my husband made and then sold several years ago; spoke to the magicians afterwards and they were very complimentary, saying what a beautiful illusion it is. (And I must admit it did look good on stage - I'd never actually seen it being used as I was always inside it when we performed it!)

got together with a friend I'd not seen in a few years, saw Deadpool. The movie was a good movie. The character was a bit more lucid and sane in areas but I suppose one needed to do that in order to hold a narrative and progress a plot, so I get it. It was a fun action comedy.

Then I spent a good 2-3 hours just chatting about deep stuff with somebody whose up for that kind of talking. It's really nice to be able to discuss topics with somebody who doesn't shy away from pondering things deeply.
