    Re: YOU WILL LEARN MAORI!!!

    I hear it on the news and Seven Sharp in particular and have absolutely no idea what it is about. To me it's just noise.

    So yes, I do believe you are correct, Zippity, we do not have any say.

    Have a nice day - not!

    It's a saying imported from Yankee Land. I think it originated in New York.

    I don't like being told to "have a nice day" or "enjoy your weekend." I'll have a nice day or enjoy my weekend if that's...

    We have put our motorhome up for sale on FB, but we have no idea if anyone has had a look at the ad and if they have, perhaps, left a question.

    I was hoping that someone could tell me as I have...

    When we travelled through the European countryside a few years back we noticed that there was no fences. We are so used to seeing fences on both sides of the road here in NZ that we were surprised at...

    Re: What to do with an old film camera?

    I still have my box Brownie, although I can't buy the film for it any more. It was monochrome. I think there was 10 shots on a Kodak 620 film. In the day that the box Brownie was popular, I had to be...

    Re: Date water-marked - mobile phone camera

    I wonder why they call it a watermark. It doesn't look anything like a watermark.

    A watermark is a figure or design impressed in some paper during manufacture, only visible when the paper is held...

  13. 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:
  14. 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.
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

    Unfortunately, BM, nothing HERE. Perhaps you need to do it again?

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

  23. 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...
