  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Sorry - last paragraph should read "...below the threshold that it needs to return to Parliament after..."...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Speaking of NZ - and for your ammusement - see this being reported in New Zealand: "NZ First leader Winston Peters has confirmed that the UK political operatives who worked on the Brexit campaign are helping his party this election."...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I have one of these: https://www.myride.co.nz/shop/bikes/road-bikes/avanti-inc-3-urban-bike purchased a few years ago as a birthday present to myself to replace my old road "commuting" bike (with 9sp rear cassette and 3sp front derailer) after about 15 years use when and I...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I suspect you better understand the Ozzie situation being on that side of the ditch, however... My comment was essentially that the web-site referenced in OGH's post # 47 showed the "countries doing well" - which included Australia where OGH...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    An exception - Australia - doing about as well as New Zealand on a comparative population basis....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Of course, if you want to (well, at least I can), you can use a USB-C to HDMI adapter to plug your (android) phone into any screen with an HDMI port - eg an 80" TV. Then by connecting a...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Not saying "everynight" - variety is good. Just saying you don't need to peel them if you roast them. Warm night in Chch tonight (for this time of year) - low expected to be 8 (celcius) - and only one...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Why peel them? Roast them skin and all (I cut them into wedges and remove the seeds first tho'). Roast pumpkin skin is perfectly edible, and if, like some of my kids and grand-kids you profess to not liking roast...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    July-August is actually mid-winter, not early winter, and spring normally commences late August for those who hang around that long. Weather is generally reasonably settled but do expect frosts and cold weather - especially in South Island. But for those...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Re "Alpine Pacific": sorry, I had a brain fade here. This train actually called "Tranz Alpine"....
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    If you are driving south from Picton to Christchurch in South Island (say - after a ferry trip from Wellington) and are interested in aircraft museums, stop off in Blenheim (on the way, just south of Picton) and visit https://www.omaka.org.nz/...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    There appears to be very little standardisation on bike fittings and fastenings. However, one of the (more common) metric threads used on bicycles is "metric fine". It seems many (most) bike shops don't attempts to stock fasteners any more as...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    2" x 4" or 4" x 2" - I guess it depends where you come from so you may be right for your locality. A builder friend of my dad who I "helped" extend our childhood home always referred to...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    My understanding is that (generally speaking), the metric prefixes commonly in use are one thousand higher or lower that that on either side - refer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_prefix for a good summary. The others - deca, hecto, deci and centi, while they...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    For further information about the Hinewai Reserve, which is in SE corner of Banks Peninsula, on the side of the Akaroa volcano, and their practise of using gorse to shelter the understory, it is worth looking at their website: https://www.hinewai.org.nz/...
