Tall Dwarfs Easter 1985 poster by Chris knox
with support from The Fold and Birds Nest Roys
one of several fine old posters that have just put on Trade Me today…
including a silk screened 6 record release F Nun poster from '85
and even a fairly ordinary John Cale poster I did back in '86
; – )
a letter writer in yesterday’s Press – pointing out a pregnant woman’s rights to bodily autonomy, rather than being overridden by ‘pro-lifers’ insistence they act as incubators for an unwanted child.
Ended succinctly, (and viscerally)…
To paraphrase Frederica Mathewes-Green, no woman wants an abortion like she wants new shoes or a handbag. She wants an abortion like an animal in a trap wants to gnaw its own leg off.
We may have all the trappings of civilisation,
but individual survival is the core…
Well done that woman!
I see the Bunt, clearly, now!
...so that's Grocery Salesman,
after his name on the wedding register
...born in Christchurch, in 1880
Didn't come out from Cornwall then...
I'm liking the sound of that Primitive Methodist Literary and Debating Society, though being linked with the Christchurch Prohibition League would make for a 'dry' diversion.
...that issue of Canta
In case anyone wants to read Mr Uffindell’s calculated piece…
An Open Letter, the one where I upset everybody
4. Also interesting is that none of Eliza’s family were witnesses.
I wonder if the 'John Martin Busch(sp?)' might be her elder brother John
- after a name change to keep the Maiden/family name of Martin or is it Martini?
(as on the wedding certificate maiden name field)
No carton character, this...
Oh and that Graeme Hart too...
Having just sold the 'just beating' heart of the North Island to Japan
(not to mention a big chunk of NZ's corporate history - Carter Holt Harvey)
He is now thinking 'outside the box' and contemplating flicking on SIG Combibloc Group Ltd
I can't imagine much of the possible $US5 billion for that, plus the billion from carving up CHH, returning to NZ, when there are much better tax domiciles to be had.
I suspect he's happy to be the 'Rank' outsider, but I'm also happy to be proved wrong, perhaps he'd like a tilt at governing, he does seem to have some success at managing change and privatising profit...
...actually, forget I just said that,
that's not the change I'm after...
That way we'd only end up with 'small change'
and begging for 'spare change'
we need 'sea change'
men of note...
And lest we forget Salmonella Dub's ever prescient contributions...
<hat tip to BP>
and Rosemary McLeod weighs in and finds that John Banks' 'crimes' are not as bad as disposing of children's bodies in a septic tank...
Good to get some reasoned perspective on these things...
....concurs with your edit.
try this on for scythe…
is there a Cockney aspect too?
Coulda bin Field hay > field’ay > Fielday
Cockies like a good mown…
Baling each other up…
...as the Black Singlet Chorale
bring in their good ’Ar Vests
…and plenty of John Barleycorn of course!
What's behind the force field?
I reckon that's how it should be spelt, too,
How they think Fieldays works is beyond me?
(actually I suspect it is something boring like Copyright and Registered IP that all looked like a good idea at the time...)
