    just sounded so far in the future to us all back then.

    That bloody Bowie, always one or two jumps ahead of the field...
    ... but yes I shoulda twigged from the lineup and clothes.
    Doh!

    While I'm sharing (far too much, probably)
    I am really enjoying the treasures to be found on this site:
    Crying all the way to chip shop
    including this cover of XTC from a Brit kid's show Crackerjack

    and Dream Sequence from Pauline Murray & the Invisible Girls

    I may have mentioned this before - but I was most pleased to see that Barry Linton's brilliant Lucky Aki - in the new stone age has been published by Pikitia Press - last year I think.
    I hope they do the whole epic and some of his other works as well.
    A fun way to learn some history of the Pacific migration...
    ...and a fine lesson in all the ways of literally drawing water, er, figuratively!

  • Polity: Budget 2016: Dull on top, hollow…, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Dr Moreau to triage....

    I basically like governments delivering surpluses, but they’ve had to dig pretty hard to construct this one.

    its more of a 'plaited-plus'
    an unlikely beast
    on the face of it...

    ...an abomination,
    or abnegation,
    if you will...

    Austalingrad...

    No worries, mate

    yeah, odd, I'd have thought with their history of 'white Australia' they'd have embraced bleached reefs wholeheartedly...

    Graham Reid - My mental image of him is way off base.

    elsewhere even, you might say...

    communicable dis-ease...

    I should really ditch Vodafone because their customer service is crap. But I’ve been with iHug since the 90s and have the whole (net, landline, Sky, free MySky) package through them and it would be a major hassle to move everything.

    I have the same situation with Woosh - who I went with when they first started as they were a Kiwi company - but as of late they've been part of a grand game of international pass the parcel - and to 'capital' off they went into administration yesterday...
    ...any recommendations out there for a stable email and domain hosting company?
    Kiwi-owned is probably too much to ask anymore...
