It’s not me, It’s YOU.

It’s not me it’s you.

It’s not me it’s you and the sooner you realise that the better.

I don’t care anymore what you think of me. I’m over your shit.

Grow the fuck up and start taking responsibility for your own actions.

It’s not me it’s you

You created this situation not me.

You can blame me all you like, but now I know you are in lala land, the drugs will do that.

The ones you should be taking but refuse to because ya know, big pharma.

And the ones you shouldn’t take but do, because ya know weed cures everything.

It’s not me it’s you.

You claim you were abused, when in reality you are the one who displayed abusive behaviour to your family.

You also abused your mother when it suited. Was it both of us or is it actually you who’s the abuser all along.

You abused your pets, and I’m now convinced my dog got sick and died because of your abuse too.

Look in the mirror and you’ll see the abuser staring straight back.

It’s not me it’s you.

I know we tried to teach you right from wrong, you just did what you wanted anyway.

It’s always been the same. Compulsive lying and flying into a rage the moment you don’t get your own way.

Vitriolic and defamatory rants against anyone you felt wronged you.

Blocking people the moment they dare to point out the error of your ways.

It’s not me it’s you.

A narcissistic sense of entitlement and complete lack of empathy that’s you, not us.

It’s your complete lack of appreciation of consequence for your own actions.

Nothing we could ever do was enough for you. Ingratitude and expectation.

It’s not me it’s you.

Your own mother refused to have you living with you do to the abuse she suffered from you, so I took you in.

Then you turned on me and claimed I was the one being abusive.

When really all I was doing just being a parent and not letting you have your own way all the time.

Yes I would tell you off and not put up with your shit, but that was your atrocious behaviour and entitlement at work.

It’s not me it’s you.

You were given every opportunity to succeed, but all you wanted to do was slack around.

We tried to steer you away from drugs, but all you wanted to do was get high.  It’s already got you in trouble with Police

You vindictively defamed me to people I know and created a false image of the person I am.
Take a look in the mirror, because..

It’s not me it’s you.

Now your mother is on the receiving end of your selfish narcissism

Apparently we both are at fault and you are blameless

Every story has two sides, this one now has three.

It’s not US, it’s you.

Google Home Commands That WORK.

SO I’m compiling a list of commands I’ve used with google home that are confirmed to work. It’s starting out small and hopefully will grow large.

Sanity Check: Commands can and do change as Google updates and generally screws round with the Google Home app. I’ll try keep a status and last confirmed date but hey things change.

I use a simple setup. I’ve got a Google Home mini, a bunch of chromecasts and some of the last available Chromecast Audio’s which are a great way to add an old but awesome set of speakers with an analog or optical input and turn them into a cheap Sonos type speaker that you can add to speaker groups or use as a single set of speakers.

Public campaign to buy Able Tasman beach successful

This makes me very proud to be a New Zealander. When it became apparent a pristine beach in the Able Tasman National Park was about to be sold by it’s owner and could fall into foreign ownership New Zealanders got behind a public campaign organised by Duane Major to raise funds to buy the beach so that it could remain in public ownership for all New Zealanders to enjoy.saveourbeach_abeltasman

Drink Drive Calculator

Alcohol contributes to around 30 percent of New Zealand’s fatal road crashes. Over the last 10 years, fatal crashes caused by drink-driving have claimed the lives of around 1,100 people and caused serious injuries to another 5,300.

From 1 December 2014, the alcohol limit lowered for drivers aged 20 years and over. This has created confusion and people are unsure of how much they can drink before being over the legal driving limits.

You can use our calculator below to ESTIMATE your Blood Alcohol Level (BAC)

Before you do though, please read the notes below !!
