    Sunday News

    Who buys (or reads) the Sunday News these days, I haven’t even seen one for years?
    And isn’t it just Fairfax’s lowest common denominator Truth clone?

    a sour-salt and buttery...

    Fonterra eyes better peak milk flow control

    The sooner they put in dedicated dairy pipelines across the landscape, the better...
    ... 24hr continuous batch brewed milk.
    (it could be called 'Crem o' Tories')

    Better yet if they can powder it, perhaps it could be reduced further, to data on-farm and pumped thru the new rural broadband hook-ups, then reconstituted at the factory?

    Am I helping yet?

    Hmmm, a person who reports on solid dairy matters
    could well be called a 'churnalist'...

    </just thought
    I'd put that
    past your eyes...>

    the udders whey…*

    It still tastes like milk

    I presume someone is using that slogan to good effect…**

    Back in the ‘60s, when the A&P Show was in Addington,
    if ya got up early one could bike from Sydenham
    and get a billy filled with fresh milk direct from source,
    I don’t think I’ve ever tasted ’milk’ quite like that again…

    …those were the days
    he said listeriacally!


    *a cheap pun that just oh, curd…
    or a subtle segue to a glimpse of a Kiwi classic?

    …all will be revealed on the 7th of May!


    **I'll check out one of those pouches you offer, though
    I think Piko stocks them

    Hair apparent…

    …the dawning of the Age of Aquariums

    Tanks for that!

    and when that dries up will it be followed by the Age of Fish Pieces?

    I can see why a Zodiac would be useful, just for getting around on all that water, and fishing and stuff….

  • Capture: The Colour Of Spring, in reply to Nora Leggs,

    Spring algae experiment?

    I think it might be a sign that nzlemming's excellent 'Age of Aquariums' is expanding and polarising, er, pole arising...

  • Speaker: Science and Democracy,

    Phew!
    Here's one problem we can relax about...

    US Homeland Security moves to tackle climate change risks
    "Increasingly, we've moved not only from a security focus to a resiliency focus," said Caitlin Durkovich, assistant secretary for infrastructure protection at Homeland Security

    They'll lead the way on tenable urban planning....

    "The challenges are fairly unique in a dense urban environment," said Zarrilli."There is no one single answer to the problem of climate change.

    oh, nevermind...

    Hark the Herald Angles...

    The Herald is STILL harping on about Labour...

    When they should be squaring up to the returning rampant Government, asking what THEY will be doing differently, letting THEM know they are on notice, in light of what we now know, and their own reporters reported on...

    But no, they are harrying the weakened bewilderbeest that has been marginalised by the herd... hardly exemplar behaviour.

    Geriatric or treat?

    Not that I know any other vindictive grandmas – all the grandmas I know (me being one) are loving, caring sorts.

    Welcome to Bolton...
