    Re: Separatism by Stealth

    Firstly, to be indigenous does not mean that they were here first, to be indigenous is to be originating in and characteristic of a particular region or country. As I said, they were not.

    Re: How do we save a FB post?

    Thank you, Bogan. That works for the pictures but not the short videos. Do you know how to save those, please?

    Re: Separatism by Stealth

    But, of course, the maoris are not indigenous. Their own stories tell of the journey from their homeland, Hawaiki, to New Zealand.
  6. Some people are offended by just about anything

    Did you watch Seven Sharp last night? They were talking about the letters on number plates and saying that some people could be offended by the letters NGR. Why? What's wrong with that? Although they...

    Re: Estate market

    It's not so much as to the price of the house but how that price compares to how much you are earning. For example, we bought our first house in 1977 for nine years wages - $26,500 - and sold it in...

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    That certainly sounded like an insult to me.:horrified and the reply:

    "TPK "facts" for crissakes???

    I'm bored with you now."

    And that was most definitely a reply insult.

    Thank goodness...

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    I, too, am glad to get rid of him. He kept going on that I was against maori and their languague, but what I was saying that I object to having people like Simon Dallow forcing the languague on me...

    Re: Are you in to genealogy?

    That's fine by me. My father said something about witches in our past which sounds rather interesting, so I'm not worried.

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    It's a bit sad that this thread has sunk to trading insults. Why can't you two discuss the topic in a civilised manner?

    And all I was saying that I object to having maori on TVNZ forced on me when...

    Are you in to genealogy?

    I recently went on a one morning course on genealogy and found it very interesting and I learnt quite a lot but one thing I was not told was a good free genealogy site. The site the tutor was using...

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    Re: I have no use for a cave man language

    I was not saying that I was miserable and no I did not take offence. What I was saying - if you had read my post - is that I object to TVNZ - Simon Dallow in particular - saying something in maori...

    You obviously have not read my post otherwise you would know that that is not correct.:illogical
  19. Re: Why do they wear American baseball caps at cricket?

    If you think so, Clive. Then why don't you start a discussion on a topic "that is a lot more important to the world . . ."? I'm certain that you should be able to come up with something much more...
  20. Re: Why do they wear American baseball caps at cricket?

    Well I called them American baseball caps because I have seen the American baseball players wearing them in old black and white newsreel films in the cinema in the 50s, many years before they became...
  21. Re: Why do they wear American baseball caps at cricket?

    But let's get it right here; I'm not so much a Yankee hater as a Kiwi lover.

    We have our own version of English in NZ, we have our own accent (which on my trips to Yankee land I have been told...

  24. Re: Why do they wear American baseball caps at cricket?

    Not being a cricketer I did not know that. Perhaps it is because I am a traditionalist (and anti American) that I prefer the all round hats. And although I do like the uniforms they wear when playing...
  25. Why do they wear American baseball caps at cricket?

    We watch, with interest, the Black Caps playing the one day matches and I wonder why they all wear American baseball caps instead of cricket hats?

    At one time the cricketers wore sensible white...
