    Yes, thanks Hebe. I don't understand why it was taken off YouTube, but I'm glad it's still on the web. :-)

    She amazed me how skillfully she handled that sword.

    Thanks Leigh!

    I love, and delight in, words....which is just as well, since I spend my life immersed in a sea of them-

    at the Cashmere Club during the Tai Chi Festival. 10 Nov 2012

    Do you have any more pictures Gudrun? I was supposed to be there; but the school fair became overwhelming and I couldn’t leave to get to the festival. Cracker fair though: perfect weather; good sized crowd not too few or too many; great food and entertainment, lots of socialising, and it looked like people were spending.

    @Lilith: You were at the fair too? I shall pass on the carrot cake compliment! Tai chi fest?

    Was at neither this year actually. Flatmate brought home the cake. :-)

    Cake stall cake? Good one; the cake stall was my project this year. The amount of love and care put into some of those offerings was amazing. I really wanted to take pictures but didn't have a spare moment. I used to think daily newspapers were hard work; they are nothing compared to a school fair!

    To say the Tai Chi festival lacked something would be unkind but somehow there were components i looked for that were not happening. Experts in their field were too few and most notable the lack of colorful satin tunics and trousers evident in the one of 2009. Part of anything oriental has always conjured up a colorful pallet for me.

    As in any field, the tai chi community has its own politics. There are disagreements and not all see eye-to-eye with the organisers.

    It was a good one! Love and care and skill obvious. :-)
    The Steiner Fair is always great.

  • DeepRed,

    I’m torn. On the one hand, Mayor Bob continues to defend Tony Marryatt. But on the other hand, he’s majorly offside with Baron Brownlee and CERA.

    Thanks Gudrun. I recognise very few people; must be different chi tribes as Lilith alluded to.

    How bad was it after the Quakes and before Demolition? And, was it in the way of the new proposed Convention Centre? Does anyone know?
