  • Southerly: Who was George Hildebrand…,

    Old electoral rolls? They can be a can of worms. When I was last at the Turnbull Library, I flicked through rolls from the 1940s--to discover that my father appeared in two for the same year--one for a Christchurch electorate, where he appeared to be married, and one in Taranaki, where he was single. There has only ever been one Wilfred Ronald Lealand.
    Not just a cupboard but a truck-load of skeletons in my family!

  • Feed: Meals for Me,

    Josephine does all our cooking for she is so good at it (she used to teach Chinese cuisine) and I do all the rest (washing,ironing, cleaning, shopping, cat feeding). Cooking when she is absent is a bit of an ordeal and it has been largely reduced to a couple of staples: shepherd's pie, rice rissotto, stir fry. Sometimes, white bread beetroot sandwiches will do.
    I have tried to recalled what I lived on when I was studying in the US. I think it was grilled cheese sandwiches, bagels, chillie, and burgers with 'fixings' piled high.

  • Southerly: Who was George Hildebrand…,

    Dear Mr Detective: I love these kind of mysteries. Like trying to figure out the origins of all the photographs of gents in uniforms, signed with affectionate messages to my mother, when we cleared out her belongings (she had also been married thrice, with an illegitimate child between the second and third ,marriage).

  • OnPoint: Budget 2014: Yeah okay.,

    I have not read anything about how Radio New Zealand, NZ Film Commission and NZ On Air fared in the Budget. Is it status quo for them je further squeezing of funding?

    Yes, not doing his/her case (whatever that may be) much favour.

  • Hard News: What rules are these?, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    Jeez! I wish I hadn't clicked on his site, for it made my head spin. What an extraordinary septic tank load of gobbledygook. He might be better employed in the firewood industry.

    All is not lost at the SST. Grant Smithies wrote a perceptive column in yesterday's edition about the obsession women's magazines have with Jennifer Anniston, and peverse interest such magazines have with finding fault with celebs (all those arrows pointing to cellulite zones!).
