    Re: YOU WILL LEARN MAORI!!!

    You have it all wrong! I am not against maori. What I am against is the government giving them privileges that no one else has. The moaris receive millions and the rest of us have to work for a...

    Re: Have a nice day - not!

    You are right. People are offended by just about anything these days. And in many cases some people are being offended on behalf of someone else, in particular the do gooders in this country are...

    Painted white over the stained wood

    Our last address was a villa with lovely wood throughout the house but it was all painted white. The doors were made of Canadian redwood and even the white paint could not hide the grain. We stripped...

    Re: Ransomware

    I did it because I would like to live a few more years. Of course it is the responsible thing to do, but I am selfish - I received my jab for me.:clap

    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...

    No fences in Europe

    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...

    They extract their salt from the salt mines. You may remember that the Soviets sent their opposition to the salt mines in Siberia.:waughh:

    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.
  20. 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...
