    Every family needs a farmer


    Thursday, October 05, 2006

    I need a sub-editor so that I can have wittier post titles

    Da Boss bought another block of land the other day. 16,000 acres, making for a grand total of 71,000 acres (I didn't even knead a calculator to work that out. Clearly I am not a recent school leaver.) The block is about twenty kilometres down the road. No water comes with it, although there is a little river running through it. At least; there is a little river running through it when the little river is running. It still has some pretty useful waterholes in it, which is more than the rivers on this place has. Da Boss is trying to arrange a sharefarming deal on a 7,000 acre paddock between the new place and the old place which has been pulled but not raked. This would allow us to operate it as basically one big farm instead of one medium and one small farm.
    I went for a bit of an explore the other day and found a sheep bridge over the river which is bigger than that coathanger thing Sinny people are so inordinately proud of. There is only one paddock of cultivation which is 2200 acres. I've been running the offsets over it for a couple of days, by my calculations there are fourteen more days of ploughing ahead of me. In the same paddock.
    Sometimes farming isn't as exciting as being a stunt man or an international powerboat racer.
    In other news: did you know that it costs just over fifty times as much to call Vietnam as it does to call the US or UK? Neither did I. Wanna buy a kidney?

    Phone over internet, voice chat in messenger, both have sound quality akin to a front line dispatch from a war correspondent.

    However they cost only as much as the internet connection. Tends to be an improvement on international call rates.

    "knead a calculator" - great turn of phrase! Kind of reminds me of how I struggled through maths in Year 12.

    Long time no speak, by the way. I have no idea how or why this site dropped off my reading list.

    Steve,
    I'm set up at this end, but the Lovely Lady seems to be a little disorganised.
    Flashman,
    welcome back!
    Dollop,
    ayup, I've gone from $108 per hour to $19.80.
    Robc,
    the sex isn't as good, either.
    Hawkeye,
    It sure is, although mine won't capture the audio at the moment.

    steve I've generally found Skype to be superior to phone quality. Plenty of people now use it for business calls. Skype out works out at about the same rate as some phone cards if you need to call an ordinary phone.

    My ISP now has VoIP available at cheap rates and no special setup -billed on monthly ISP bill. I bought a cheap USB VoIP phone for $25 and downloaded X-Lite softphone - works on Skype and my ISP.

    Phone cards usually are cheapest I get 15 hours to Taiwan to my daughter for $10. Vietnam should be about the same. You need to get the best card for the country.
