  • Southerly: Who was George Hildebrand…, in reply to David Haywood,

    I think you need to add another box around the Geo Coleman signature and JP at the bottom because it appears to differ from the handwriting of the reset of the letter (eg compare the "an" with "any" in the letter). The additional JP was definitely written by a different hand than the crossed out JP.

    This also explains the crossing out of the JP. It was originally intended that Coleman would sign his name in front of this as a witness to Alington’s signature. But then Rev Holland added “me John Holland” which made the intended layout nonsensical.

    Yes. That would seem to be the most plausible explanation.

  • Southerly: Who was George Hildebrand…, in reply to Hebe,

    Nah... I'm still going with Holland as the JP: would be standard for the local parson to be a JP for signing births, deaths and marriage certs. And the ink is different to GC's.

    It looks to me like Geo Coleman in the process of signing put the JP on the left. John Holland thought that this was an inappropriate place for it, so has crossed it out, and written it again in the correct position under Geo Coleman's signature.

    Also, if Geo Coleman was a JP, he may have had to sign lots of things, so maybe his standard quick signature was just Geo C with an underline. He then decided that this document needed a bit more, so added the "oleman".

    For a while last year we’d got into a really good routine where once a week one of our teenagers would cook. It’s harder this year with our son at uni and sports and stuff that means they don’t get home til quite late sometimes, but we really should get back on to it.

    We're quite proud that our teens are each cooking once a week now, but I can see how that may be threatened next year when Boy is off to varsity.

    I suspect they'll be popular when they go flatting, because I'm not aware of similar skills amongst their peers.

    He's to the left of where they are, so he's a leftie. Ipso facto.

    ...from the normal family cooking I do six days a week every week all the time.

    No one else in your family cooks ? That's a bit sad...

    My partner and daughter don't like seafood, so if they're not around I cook up some onion, kumara, gold/red/orange capsicum, parsnip, yam (if available), and greens with some butter in the electric frypan, throwing in some frozen surimi, calamari and mushrooms once the kumara is cooked (about 8 minutes). Quick & easy meal for one.

    Yeah. Our politicians are always planning things for a 30 year time frame. Oh ... hang on ... where did that extra zero come from ...

  • OnPoint: Why does the top 10% paying…,

    Fantastic work Keith. Clearly laid out and explained. When talking about increases and decreases, Tax Rate most certainly does not equate to Tax Amount.

    Oh, and anybody who's put off by the phrase "interactive data visualisation", don't be. It comes with a handy-dandy slide show that explains things in 8 easy steps. Go on - give it a go.

    We went and saw John Gordillo tonight. Really neat show - thought-provoking and funny. It's one of my pet hates - corporations trying to pretend that they are a person, and, moreover, a friend. Recommended.
