While we were very close to Christchurch on that terrible day yesterday, we are fine and now in Wellington.

Ta ta

See you all in a couple of weeks, unless this happens.

In my absence you can read a little of what I have written in the past. Not all posts about New Zealand are here.

This first one is not really about New Zealand, but I really like what I wrote.

To Australia's shame when a young HIV+ girl was ostracised in her own country town.

A couple of great train journeys in New Zealand.

I had totally forgotten about this, the promiscuous NZ women.

New Zealand's capital city Wellington lost its electric trolley buses just a year or so ago.

Amusing bus destination in Dunedin, South Island.

The steepest street in the world, aka a fun roll of Jaffas.

A moving letter about renewal post the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.

A strange NZ bird with a rather humorous Stephen Fry video clip.

A memory of our last visit to New Zealand perhaps in 1982 or 1983.

When kangas attack

Our kangaroos who are in regular contact with people are cute and cuddly. Not so the wild kangaroos who are very territorial. I am not sure if this video will work, and if not, try this link.

Ok, found it on Youtube. They really dislike this 'big bird' flying in.

A Compact Royce

It is a nice thing to have a straight male reader who comments on my blog regularly. I wonder if Cro's Compact Royce has headlight washers and wipers as I saw on a not so compact Rolls Royce in Collins Street? Swish swish.

Friday Funnies

Just came across these photos somewhere on the net.

Photo of me cooking my most excellent famous fried rice, the only thing I cook. I have strong muscles from flipping the wok around. I am a bit cute, yes?

Strayer of Cat Eyes---A Cat Woman's Photos does unbelievable work by getting medical treatment for neglected cats along with a huge number of cats desexed. I takes me 'at orf to her for her tireless and quite physical work at times. I donate $US7 a month to her Happy Cat Club. It is an odd figure but it is about AU$10. If you have bought something on the internet it will be so easy to make a donation or a regular contribution. I am sure she won't appreciate this cartoon.

I wonder about the authenticity of this one.

I really don't like pigeons or doves, but it is we humans that have made them such a pest.
