  • Busytown: It's like a jungle sometimes,

    Loverly, who needs to travel when we can read things like this

    Mind you it does make me glad that I was brought up in different times and so were my boys...climbing and going adventuring was just out the back door

  • Random Play: Following The Songlines,

    When it comes to taste it was what you like that counts no one elses opinion is worth a tin of fish
    I am not a Kylie fan but I do love her rendition of "Jingle Bell Rock" sung double time (well really fast) in East Timor..fantastic

    I don't know how to place a Youtube thingy in here but if someone has the smarts to do it that would be great

  • Hard News: Birth of the Nasty,

    Danyl, so which large chunks of the private sector in New Zealand are being saved by the "public service"?

    And Russell the "honeymmon" is called that for a reason...not much news actually but it would be nice if some with a left leaning just got used to the fact that national won...get your head around that and then start pointing out their mistakes

    On the other hand I have made my panforte, which obviously must be easy if I can manage it and goes down a treat

  • Up Front: All I Want for Christmas is a…,

    One of the ways I deal with christmas is to talk endlessly about how the christians stole it from us (pagans that is) and we are now in the process of taking it back

    This in answer to the inevitable letter to the paper whinning about the christ being taken out of Christmas

    My wife and sons just endure this but one day I promise I will write a letter to the paperbefore the above letter is published

  • Random Play: The Key’s under the Matt,

    "Well, nothing much has really changed, has it."

    And that of course is why we really have the so called "honeymoon "

    Either nothing much happens or so much happens that the media spend all their time saying "geez look at all this change"

    Sorry folks, but that how we run things here
    Of course it helps that by the time past Governments have got organised it was that really silly season, post christmas news drought

  • Hard News: Speaking Freely,

    On the other hand when you are going for market penitration surely more money is to be made by encouraging people to watch your product

  • Hard News: Speaking Freely,

    A question for our Host
    Why are the programes for the freeview such a secret
    If you have the machine yes you can scroll around and check them out but where are they in print!

    I am sure if the general public could see what is available (as you can for all the Sky stuff) there would be an even faster take up

    I have to say I was in quite early thanks to some of Russell's writings and while not a big tellie watcher just love the so superior digital picture, forget about HD just the D (as in digital) will do me for the immediate future

  • Hard News: Rethinking the EFA,

    While there are good reasons for a 4 year term I compared to 3 year one am fairly sure some time in the past there was a referendium on this and it was soundly thrashed
    Very little popular support at all
    Think 12 years of your less than favourite party
