Curly quotes are good

The curly-quotes discussion has ended, and in favour of using them (consistently within a work)! The MoS has been updated to:

Use a consistent style of quotation marks (“straight” or “curly”) within a given work. It is recommended to use “straight” quotes in works where there are a large number of contributing editors, since consistent use of “curly” quotes may be difficult to achieve.

3 legs

One of the four legs of the metalworking bench was recently sacrificed to make a post for the new letterbox, and so the bench is rather on hold for now. Which is a total relief! Because those bits of jarrah were really a bit rough anyway for the bench I’ve got in mind, with too many holes and rotten bits. So I can now move down the list and get working on the jarrah work stand (or one of… I’ve only got enough timber for one, which will be supremely useless without its mate, but I’m sure I can find more wood for the 2nd stand).


I stopped at the shop and got milk, so had to hurry back with it. Otherwise I would jave tried to get some photos of the building works that are going on at the hotel. Or had a beer. Or both.

I got back and went for the most refreshing swim. It’s hardly a hot day, but four hours of walking made it pretry easy to throw myself in with no hesitating.


I’ve had to give up on my camera because it’s battery has died. So I’m stuck with the phone. Although, there’s something good too about being able to describe photos as soon as I take them, rather than waiting and maybe forgetting why i took them.

Like this strange rusty bouy thing on the beach, but probably this is a bad photo and shouldn’t be used.

Army Jetty changes

Heading back to the Settlement now, and I’ve stopped at the army jetty to have a look at it now that the unsafe concrete decking has been demolished. It’s a bit boring now, just a groyne, but good that it’s nit going to squash anyone I guess!

English: Looking towards the shore on the Army jetty, with new limestone visible in the foreground where the concrete decking was removed in 2019.
