    I am not sure but one idea is steel and one is wood. Guess we have to wait and see.
    I get to be in charge of colour, staining and painting. I've managed to paint the house and stain the ceilings. The interior is waiting until the dust settles but one bedroom is finished.

    If there is any doubt about Hone speaking his mind, forget it.

    Never had doubt. Found it cute that The Maori Party are all up "in arms" over Mana,Internet, trying to suggest its all about the money when the irony is that ,that is why Hone left them. As if there couldn't possibly be any thing else to discuss. Maybe even cheap Internet in rural communities which is one possibility right there that would benefit young maori.

    Sadly conjecture gussied up as 'fact' seems to be the new norm in mass media.

    I watched 3 Degrees last night and is it just me or is Rachel Smalley emulating Guyon with a bit of Paddy thrown in? Sad...

    I'm rather impressed that the treads appear to float also. The stairs I mean. I've been privy to the bent wood hand rail he is making as well. The strength is rather comforting too. The dog took to it like a fish out of water which basically she was as she couldn't use the ladder and it became a game to see who got downstairs first when she had to exit outside around the front and in the garage. I had to stumble down the ladder. Happy its relegated to the backside of the house ready to become access to the roof :)

    I’m guessing ‘synthetic heroin’ might be

    Methadone?

    As a post-grad psychopharmacologist I am appalled at the state of ignorance in New Zealand about psychoactive drugs and their dangers – and this includes anti-depressants, “mood” changers etc – all of which are poorly researched. No-one is going to “research” these legal highs if they can’t even do proper assessments of main stream drugs!

    I'm in total agreement with you there debunk. That is probably why I cant fathom why cannabis is considered the devil. Still hysteria doesn't change or help your fact.

    It’s similar to that feeling you get when you’d like to stop building (for a bit) and start sailing.

    Yes plus keeps the Mrs' happy. We like to wash in warm water. ;)

    The bill was introduced in February last year and reported back from select committee in June. Wiser heads than mine will have a view on whether that was long enough,

    He said it was rushed as NAct left it to the last moment to introduce it.

    Blue bar? I see no blue bar… The monster meadow has clearly swallowed EVERYTHING.
