    Why? Beats me, nothing so terrible in their lives, no abuse, no sudden divorces (parents) or anything.

    The stuff I've read points to social media, it becomes almost like a meme....and it seems to be catching.
    Teens don't think well anyway, so I guess it becomes a they all do it, so I must thing.

    My son is slightly anxious, being in Auckland, but that's a financial thing, he's not outright panicking or anything, just the like last time, no overtime, possibly no proper income even...as happened last time.

    But he's sensible, hasn't racked up debt by doing major renos, not selling and buying a more expensive house (like all the neighbours round him).

    The number of Aucklanders queing up for covid tests is insane. Sitting in a que for up to 7 hours when you dont have any symptoms, why?
    It means those who should be tested cant get tested straight away.

    A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

    They are Tangelos that I give them. Not very sweet though. That's why they get them. Lemons any grapefruit my be too acidic but you could try them out.

    So my brother was due to have his 2nd vaccine today.

    On Wednesday he got a txt saying it was rescheduled to Thursday. And at Cashmere....
    So he rang only to be told, no it's all still on for Friday, ignore txt and go in Friday.

    We did, and he was told no it's all closed, go home and rebook.

    He tried. It says the site is down and no bookings can be done at all now and it will probably be September anyway.

    What is the govt doing???!!! It's beyond a joke.
