What we did on our holidays.

The reason we went to Stewart Island was Ulva Island. This is a bird sanctuary, and it is wonderful. For most of the day, I was carrying a very long (150 -600mm) birding lens. Fatigue did not help with the shots. These were taken with the cellphone, but one. Following four hours there, we went […]

This week in reaction

As our society moves into lockdown, there is no point at all warning about COVID. You warn about things before they happen, not when you are in the middle of it. Yesterday everyone in the family got a text from our GP advising us that everyone over 70 and the immunocomprimised should self-isolate. At this […]

What we did in our holidays II

For something I was supposed to put together in a short time in January this has taken quite a while. Once we got to Stewart Island we spent the first day exploring. It was the only day when the weather was picture perfect, and we hired a couple of electric bikes. This was the first […]

To start with, one of our pollsters (National party: read globalist business) still believes racism is a sin. One committed by Shane Jones. It is not […]

Had an email conversation with my GP today. I apologized about getting all the family to see her (serially) and getting scripts. She was doing the same thing. In case. That case has just happened. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed this afternoon that a suspected case of Covid-19 coronavirus has tested positive. Ardern said the […]

Midweek reaction (Corona Chan has left the reservation)

The Corona Chan The schools in Italy have been closed because Coronavirus is now in Italy. They are taking the economic hit, now. Locally, some suppliers are running short. We were working on shelving over the weekend and the local big box store has run out of such. We put an order in, now. We […]

Holiday update: To the Island.

We started our holiday with a road trip, deviating to Gore, where the shopping was remarkably good. Then Invercargill, which was a disappointment. I’ve checked with locals afterwards, and we made a mistake: we went into the CBD. Which is a reasonably good place to go if you want to have a worship service, but […]
