    The flag is now a rag...
    Thank you JK. You have denigrated anyone who stood behind it.
    If John Key wants to have a new flag then may I suggest he goes for the Stars and Stripes and goes to live in the country that has that flag already.

    this will never be the new old Ponsonby

    there will be compensations like better dumplings, different conversations, new groupings

    Its called CHANGE
    And it should get better, otherwise what the fuck are we doing?.

    I was recently mildly shocked to discover that La-Z-Boys are something of a cult item with people around a decade younger than me.

    True Bro. Next thing you know is they've built an extension and a deck on the house in Point Chev, got their own TV show and are complaining about a rates increase.
    Jeez, they'll be shouting at kids to get off their damned lawn next and telling everybody that will listen that the neighbourhood is going to the dogs.

    a renewed sense of community and lack of pretension. Greeting people as you pass on the street, knowing your neighbours,
    the sounds of children

    3 outa 4 ain't bad.
    Seriously though, when we moved "out" to Mt Roskill it was an eye opener in that regard. It was a bit like how I remember Ponsonby Road, a community. Now I shudder every time I get north of K' Road into the heaving bosom of the Nouveau Riche and the home of Mike Hosking, what a wanker.

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race, in reply to FletcherB,

    ASB has not always been a privately held business

    Someone, no doubt, will correct me if I am wrong but wasn't having an account at a trust bank a proviso for getting a mortgage years back, a bit like the old British "Building Societies"?
