    Re: Buzz Words of yesterytear

    Thank you, Ken. Very original and very droll.

    Re: Buzz Words of yesterytear

    Ban the Americanisms. Promote the Kiwi way. For...

    Shock Horror! I was banned.

    Last week I was banned for making derogatory comments. Personally I did not think it was that bad, but then Jen thought differently and banned me for a week.

    Very true. They are baffling the viewers with a load of old rubbish that very few (including most maori) understand. I think that they are just showing off and it means absolutely nothing to the...

    Re: Maori language week

    I'd say that's about as far as you need to go. No reason to go overboard.

    We went down to the park near the beach. There would have been a few hundred there. (And we thought the parks were...
  10. Why do they remember and celebrate the anniversary of their death?

    I listen to the Magic radio station and every so often they tell us that on a particular day, a popular singer "passed away." (Never understand why they don't say they "died." :groan:)

    I would...
