Curse you, Red Baron!

The drone safely in my charge, being a lot of fun and apparently being so easy to fly, I’m already looking to my next challenge. As a fan of Snoopy, I think that taking to the skies as a beagle atop a kennel/Sopwith Camel while chasing my (and his) World War I nemesis Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen – the ‘Red Baron’.

This option is now available to me:


It’s really cool to see drones flying – and it’s something I know we’re going to see a whole lot more of* – but flying kennels**? Not so much.


* There were three at Wynberg field just yesterday evening.
** There were no flying kennels at Wynberg field yesterday evening.

Snoopy songs

Warning: This post contains some naughty words.

With a Snoopy birthday party happening in our household Real Soon Now™, all things Peanuts® are en vogue. Thus, it was no surprise when, in addition to a plethora of other Snoopy-related requests, I was asked by my 7 8-year-old daughter if I could please find some Snoopy music on my phone.

I had a look on simfy.


Everything seemed to be going just fine for the first six songs.

But then if this meme was ever needed, it’s right here:


We listened to the first song, but then we stopped listening to any further songs in order to leave a suitable buffer zone between us and anything after song six.

Safety first.


Off to the cinema again this evening (yes, I know).


No, I don’t even know what’s going on.
I’m not a huge fan of going to the cinema, but I’m happy enough to go along every once in a while to keep Mrs 6000 or the kids happy. Especially during a week with no football. *hyperventilates*

And I used the Ster Kinekor tablet app to book the tickets. And it was super smooth. And then it put the appointment onto my calendar. And then Google Now gave me directions to the cinema (although I actually know where it is) and suggested a suitable time to leave home to get there with a few minutes to park and buy popcorn.

I feel like I’m living in the future. And isn’t it nice when things just work?
