Told you I could have dealt with it cheaply!
How much is airfare from NZ to Canada, or vice versa?
Better to tie the tooth to a dog sled and yell MUSH!!

Hope you're back blowing on the pipes soon, pain free.
I'll be doing that tonight - I need to play toothache or not (plus if my ears are bleeding, I'll probably forget my toothache).

I've got my own leatherman, and (I believe) I've got the willpower to pull it - it's just that teeth are pretty darned useful.

Yeah, but you don't need them all!

Having a tooth-ache just plain tests one`s resolution...

Never put off until tomorrow that which you can put off indefinitely.

plan

and be sure to include options in your plan

" No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength" (or "no plan survives contact with the enemy") and "Strategy is a system of expedients". " - Helmuth von Moltke the Elder - Wikipedia
My late father used to say that all battles began at the intersection of four maps.

Regards,
Richard.

Then I must be very lazy. But, on the other hand, sticking to your plan for tomorrow requires a great deal of perseverance and energy. I started retiring around 8 or 9 years ago and have been fully retired since 2015. We do whatever we want every day. It was worth it.

Regards,
Richard.

I'm one of those people - I much prefer the cold than heat.
But ... 20C is not hot, even when it's humid. The Nelson Bay minimum last night was around 20C, and I slept with a feather doona over me. You get used to it. Your body acclimatizes. Much better than 40 below where any exposed skin gets frostbite and bits fall off. Much cheaper on clothes too. Sperry Topsiders, shorts, polo shirt, big straw hat works for ten months of the year. I might need jeans and long sleeves for a couple of months a year.

Regards,
Richard.

Now I have started talking to myself in an attempt to convince me that most people are harmless even if they are mentally ill



Now you're making sense



Not my favourite either, but having to choose between that and (shudders) a cold winter... No contest.

Of course, even worse than the cold is the darkness. Those short, short days of December and January really saps all energy.

That's behind us now, thankfully! It's the first day of Spring, right?


I have been noticing how much more light there is these days. Lovely.

A bit like the short, short days of July and August for us?
Yes, except it looks like on your shortest days at 40S the sun is up roughly 8am to 5pm? Here at 60N it's 10am to 3pm. With the sun 7 degrees above the horizon at noon.

The poor sods on the Svalbard islands have their last sunset of the year on October 25th, and first sunrise on February 16th. I'm not at all certain I could handle that OTOH, I wouldn't mind the period with no sunsets between April 20th and August 23rd

One of my grand-uncles pulled his own tooth. Went down into the basement with a set of pliers. Came up rather pale. But it worked.

June, 1987 on a remote fishing lake in Ontario, about 50'N, the farthest north I've ever been, it seemed like it never got totally dark. Always at least a faint glow.
Here, at about 39'N, we still get about 9.5 hours of daylight on the shortest days.
I like daylight, never been a night person.
Time change April 11, more daylight................... in the evenings.
