The Timeball Tower to come down

A sad news alert from Time Spanner that the Lyttleton Time Ball Tower just out of Christchurch is to be demolished. However, it may not quite as dire as first seems. Check the comments and there is a link to another story that, while not optimistic, at least gives hope for a future presence.


  1. I thought you might be interested in this 'munted' discussion from the Mayor: "Parker tells Laura's mother Dianne, who is leading dalmatian Shilo, that "the technical term is `munted'. There's mega-munt, medium-munt and minor-munt".

    At 12.51pm, 10 days exactly after the earthquake, Parker looks around at the blasted roadscape, bent houses and silt piles during a walkabout in Bexley with Prime Minister John Key. "This is mega-munt."

  2. Degrees of munted. But munted I think is adequate.
