    I agree with Ian that the Dunne connection is just a little bit too cosy and old boy network. Are there certain topics prohibited around the family dinner table?

    Great stuff, David! You have been missed 'round these parts.

    This is a welcome alternative to the excesses of The Living Channel, which my beloved subjects me to. Last night some fellow seemed to be making a house out of compacted cow poo,

    You didn't consider mowing your meadow? Cows up here would appreciate such green fodder.

    Frankie Knuckles. What a great name! Sounds like a character from a Damon Runyon story or a Mickey Spillane novel.

    The new release by SIsyphus, combining the talents of Sufjan Stevens, Son Lux and Serengeti, sounds intriguing.

  • Hard News: Gower Speaks, in reply to steve black,

    Yes, and we need journalists to distinguish between polling (randomly selected stratified or quota-selected, representative samples of potential voters) and surveying (self-selected, non-randomised on-line surveys). The new guidelines released by Research Association New Zealand "New Zealand Political Polling Code" are very good.

    I reckon we need a National Feijoa Clearinghouse. The neighbour's lawn is carpeted with small fruit and our big old tree, which requires support for bits heavy branches, is producing large fruit. Several years back we had one fruit which weighed in at 0,5kg.

  • Hard News: Members of the Press,

    My experiences with the Press Council is that they are weak as shit when it comes to inflammatory material eg when I registered a complaint about ACT acolyte Garry Mallet running a series of columns fostering race hatred under the guise of a 'Paid Advertisement' in a local community newspaper. The PC acknowledged that the columns were unfair and unethical but declined to do anything about them.

    It wasn't No. 58 by chance? Our friends Deb and Andrew live there.

    Two good South India restaurants in Hamilton: RR South India (out near the university) and Bananaa Leaf (not sure why the extra 'a') in Hamilton East. A long tradition of Indian restaurants here--might be something to do with the tradition of Indian dairy farming in the Waikato.
