    A friend and I got up at 5.30am, and took our scooters into the domain for the dawn service on Saturday. It was packed, and there were some personal moments when the daughter of good friends got up to speak and lay a wreath.

    However, Len Brown was a little disappointing, to be honest, but you get that.

    Another couple from in the St. James.

    habaneros from March

    Sizzle. I can attest, a little goes a long way.

  • Hard News: About Campbell Live, in reply to Hilary Stace,

    I thought only live watching got counted in the stats they are quoting? Not delayed or on demand.

    There seems to be much confusion over this, and surely it is important. The way people are consuming television in general, and news in particular, has to be part of the dialogue, even for advertisers. Relying on a traditional ratings approach is destined to become part of history, one way or another.

    On my own viewing habits, I will often be drawn into watching by social media buzz, which CL does better than just about any other programme. He's also been incredibly adept at getting money out of viewers for genuine causes that change people's lives. I really hope we don't lose this aspect.

    Then being able to selectively watch on-line is also important. With three under 14s in the house, this is their prime-time viewing, and as much as I'd like them to be watching Campbell Live...

    Just remembered we posted a few photos on the Laneway blog, as this was the next day.

    Here’s one not posted before. Was quite a surreal, and enjoyable night. Sad it’s likely to be the last of Hugh’s Sundae Sessions. They have been great.

    Also very sad to hear about Grant. F#$k cancer.

    Went to capture the sunrise from Mt Roskill, but it was late, and didn’t really live up to the hype. So just got the early morning traffic on the move.

    I’d really love to be able to know enough in advance to hop on a plane and see one.

    I nabbed this from Paul's timeline, and he would know better how to interpret it.

    From the Space Weather Prediction Center.

    I was thinking the same thing last night. Would certainly hop on a plane to see this first hand, if I had some advanced warning.

    On the move, from the road. Vespa-cam.

    Where I used to play.

    Hi Chris. Afraid I'm a bit slow on the uptake lately. Welcome home to you, and your family. Hoping it's treating you well so far.

    We're on the move too soon, but just half way round the block, not half way round the world.

    One for Ian D.

    Finally got the Flying Nun anniversary card set proof framed. Nicely double sided for easy viewing. I’m stoked. :-)
