Here in most are buffered from the travails of life raging outside our borders, if we can do anything it's give hope by living the best lives we can.

Nice work Michelle and Teacher Jacqui Hooper.

Just do it parents, you never know one day your kids might point back to these very holidays and say, "That's why I'm a scientist!"

Wow, Sally Phillips is quite amazing with her Moments ... that last one was actually genius.

The Snapper card was also gonna replace all 'loose change purchases' letting you do so much more than just buy a bus ticket:

"WCC will also be Snapper-enabled and spokesperson Trina Saffioti says the payment system will be available at council-owned recreation centres and pools.

[..] a high level of interest from the retail sector, especially from video stores, dry cleaners and shoe shops;"

"Video stores", how the world has changed in a mere 10 years. What's gonna be smiled at in 2030?

Cooking Up A Cloud

The Genghis Khan restaurant on Majoribanks Street (Mt Vic) has been in my Wellington life from the mid-1990. A number of life changing events have occurred inside and I shall always think of it fondly.

The fantastic InternetNZ annual conference is going on-line (but of course it is). They're currently looking for speakers / facilitators.

If you're wanting to attend keep an eye on the website for tickets when they come open up.

I have a pot of old oil post something being deep fried a while ago.

How do I get rid of it?
