    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    I hate all those groups and societies that call themselves "Smoke Free Aoteroa" or "Breast screen Aoteroa"

    Its almost as if they are pushing some agenda.

    Fantastic idea. Tourists will be flocking to visit Te Ika-a-Maui and Te Waipounamu o Aoteroa.

    Sorry Gary,
    Can't call them Bill and Ben - Bill's got to be Wiremu these days. Dunno anout Ben - I guess there'll be an equivalent.
