  5. Re: Did you know there is a salt works in New Zealand?

    They extract their salt from the salt mines. You may remember that the Soviets sent their opposition to the salt mines in Siberia.:waughh:
  6. Re: Did you know there is a salt works in New Zealand?

    They dig it out of the ground - they have salt mines. You might remember that the Soviets sent their opposition to the salt mines. It appears that it was hard work.
  7. Re: Did you know there is a salt works in New Zealand?

    Yes, I did not think that there was any difference between sea salt and any other salt. Just because it comes from the sea or the land, surely it is still salt? So, as you say, Paul, why would they...
  8. Re: Did you know there is a salt works in New Zealand?

    I have always heard them referred to as oxidation ponds, but you made me wonder so I looked up oxidation and this is what it said:

    Oxidation ponds, also called lagoons or stabilization ponds, are...

    The Lake Grassmere Salt Works are about 30km south of Blenheim near the town of Seddon, just north of Cape Campbell. I used to live at Ward, 50km south of Blenheim and travelled into town once a week...

    An interesting and nice coincidence

    When SWMBO flew into Auckland in 1974, she was sitting alongside a young guy who was returning from his OE. She kept in touch and met his mother, a primary school teacher. At the time, she had no...
  12. Re: Do you know the interesting history of Radio Hauraki?

    Unfortunately, BM, nothing HERE. Perhaps you need to do it again?
  13. Re: Do you know the interesting history of Radio Hauraki?

    That would be good, thank you. I would be interested in watching it.
  14. Re: Do you know the interesting history of Radio Hauraki?

    Yes. When they were travelling back to Auckland one evening after having been granted a land licence, DJ Rick Grant fell overboard when the ship lurched in a storm. The Tiri and one other ship...
  15. Do you know the interesting history of Radio Hauraki?

    Prior to the 60s, all radio in NZ was controlled by the government. If you wanted to start a radio station you had to apply to the NZ Broadcasting Corporation, but they were not going to grant you a...

    Thank you, Wainui. I was able to change the picture, but then I realised that it was not the picture that I wanted to change - I wanted to change the administrator.

  18. How do I change the user on the club's laptop

    When booting up the club's laptop, everything goes fine until we come to the part where we put in the password. Above the area where we type in the password is the picture of the previous user (the...

    I certainly can't agree with that. Just because they are that stupid does not mean that we should not care for them - it is the humane thing to do.

    But I do agree with a reward system but it's a...

    As I understand it, being vaccinated does not stop you contracting Covid-19 or passing it on to someone else - it just protects you from the effects of the virus.

  21. Re: I love watching amateur train videos, but . . .

    That's no reason. I am an amateur as well, but, as I said, the video is good - most people use a tripod - it's just the soundtrack that lets them down and it's not difficult to edit the soundtrack....

  24. I love watching amateur train videos, but . . .

    A fellow train enthusiast sends me amateur train videos (not his) which I enjoy watching, but in many cases - although they look good - the soundtrack lets them down.

    Re: An interesting read,

    I wholeheartedly agree!

    We had maoris at our school in the 50s and 60s and they were treated just the same as anyone else. While we knew that they were maori, we did not treat them any differently...
