    Re: Who made that one up?

    I could forgive them if there was some genuine Maori language involved. But Misspelling English words and pretending that it is te reo is just tommyrot. A pathetic attempt at political correctness....

    Re: Driver licence renewal at age 75 -

    Nah. The cops go rural for a spot of R & R and some easy pickings where the only place to pull over is in a drainage ditch. Then they can get you for that, too. [Failure to stop or careless use;...

    Oh she has. It's called 3 waters but she doesn't want you to know about that so she will smother you with the Covid blanket and when you emerge, you will be amazed at what went on behind the curtain.

    Re: Driver licence renewal at age 75 -

    It's a wise man who knows when to quit. Having a SWMBO who can drive is a distinct asset. For those of us who are on our own for whatever reason, it is a case of wondering what else they can take...

    Re: Driver licence renewal at age 75 -

    That's exactly how it was with me and I doubled it up on a routine GP visit for an new prescription. All up, $18.50 with an apology that the price had increased by $1.

    But after 80, you have to...

    Re: Just More Racism

    Absolutely not. If I can quit smoking from 40 a day for 50 years, so can they. And the easy answer...? Get vaccinated. No vax; no hospital for any reason. Sure hundreds or maybe thousands would...

    Re: Just More Racism

    So vaccination is not possible unless the taxpayer crosses someone's palm with millions $$$. Lets just say no treatment whatsoever for any cause without vaccination. Broken arm - no treatment, kids...

    Re: We are in Good Hands

    Oh I would agree that lockdowns can at best only slow the spread of the virus and maybe give hospitals the capacity to cope. But the collateral damage to the economy and the mental health of...

    I fail to see how a gathering of 1000s in a manner likely to cause the spread of a potentially deadly disease could possibly be called a "peaceful protest" or "a picnic" by anyone capable of rational...

    There's nothing about gangs that a few hundred well trained men with AK47s couldn't fix. But maybe that would be going a bit too far? What would Mr Putin do?

    Re: Have a nice day - not!

    Nowadays, when I get the perfunctory "'Ow are ya?" I generally reply that I can't remember (on the grounds that some things are better forgotten.) Or, "That is too hard a question. Ask me an easy...

    Re: Ransomware

    I neither received nor required an incentive to get vaccinated. I did it because it is the responsible thing to do.

    I recently got "Enjoy the rest of your day" which might as well have been "Enjoy the rest of your life." Does this imply that I have not enjoyed my day or my life thus far or does it suggest that...
