pains in the assets...
I do love this sudden rush of political enthusiasm about Kiwi mums and dads.
I suspect the mums and dads they're thinking of
look a lot like Fay, Richwhite and their ilk...
These strategic assets are part sold for 10 billion dollars (optimistically), which is what - 40 weeks worth of borrowing $250 million?
Then what do they (we) have to pay the rest of their borrowings (plus interest) back with?
Diminished returns from their half +1 share in these assets and taxation - looks like a backtrack on their hardening stance on land sales to foreigners will be on the agenda if National gets back in...
It's a bit of a gift to Winston Peters' platform too...
on your marks
- hit the hustings!
That coffee place in Chancery Lane was neat:
Number 17, I think... Opposite the original Media Club.
Did the Victorian (cnr Montreal and Oxford Tce)
do coffee - maybe it was Cona or filter...
and what about Leon Langley's
upstairs next to Ballantyne's in Colombo st
@ Marion O
it's not a contest
context is everything
look eye, mmmm. yore farther...
That truly is a staggering corner.
no wonder that cab never arrived!
the physics of memory
can bend time and space
everything that rises must converge...
The Open Late - was that the one on the corner of Richmond Rd and K Rd? (staggering distance home at the time...)
and didn't Charlie Grey's cafes have good coffee
(one in Victoria street and then in Symonds st - hazy memories? See staggering above...)
but Dominos' Tofu - Yes! yum, fond memories...
Tired late-night slip of the tongue, apparently.
One would think that professional journalists who know they have a regular late night spot shouldn't be going for the "tired, late night" excuse - shoddy is what I'm saying - and it just means I can't trust anything they say if they can't be arsed getting the small stuff right...
hmmm, Exxon Valdez anyone...
and don't forget Trade Aid has also helped bring in more and more coffee while ensuring growers get best prices...
it seems other newsmedia can't get the facts right either...
...just watched TV3 news as they blathered on about Oscar possibles, ending with "... and of course Danny Boyle's Inception!"
have to say I did enjoy The King's Speech this arvo
....for ideation flu
Russ never sleeps...
Or Crowe's Road...
whatever else one may say or think about him
that was a good gig that mr le Roq ran there...
Auckland sorely needed an all ages venue
