Here it is, my Friday and I want to quick update before the beginning of the long US of A weekend. Though I think a very limited number of my vast audience is located in this country, I figure those elsewhere might want to play along too. The game goes a little like this, you need to have a lot of explosives (fireworks) a lot of flammables (lighters/matches/alcohol/charcoal fluid/charcoal) and a lot of children running around. Mix this with a lot of drinking of the alcoholic beverages to impair judgement, a lot of eating of meat to slow the impaired people's response times even further, and let the fun begin. The game is won by the person with the most remaining appendages at the end of the weekend with bonus points for each of your younger relatives that still have all of their digits.
New Zealand news is sparse. I have just been staring admiringly at my pile of application materials and will start working on them as of tomorrow I believe. Four day weeks are great, next week is a three day week, that's even better. I should be able to make much progress.
Celeste installed a lovely message board under the counter on the right hand side of the page to make it very simple to leave me notes about anything. Please take advantage of that simple way to say hi (or to comment on anything on your mind).
