Weeks 13 and 14

Hi once again.
Sorry it's been so long between drinks, but I don't seem to be able to get to the computer as often as before.
Anyway, I've kept on keeping on. We played probably our best gig the other week - it was for the local branch of the National Security Force (or something like that) who were given something of an evening out. They came out to The Park in the afternoon, we played them off the train, and then they went up to the golf course for an afternoon of driving (and presumably also the real thing - not sure about that) and other entertainment, including, you guessed it, us. But, while we were waiting to play, and after we played we also were allowed to go to the driving range too! They put on a BBQ, which we ate (I'd never before seen a chicken wing on a skewer until that night!) This was the best meal I'd had courtesy of OCT!
The highlight of the night, however, was watching them collect all the golf balls at the end of the evening. Do you think they came out with a machine or something? Of course not. This is China! They sent a bunch of dudes out with baskets and golf-ball-rakes and picked them up by hand!

The other big news is that Casey (Geoff's replacement) has arrived and is settling in. She's finding it a little hard at present, but I'm sure she'll cope.
The Wii is getting plenty of use, Victor is practically addicted to the bowling game, and is getting quite good.
That's about it for now.
