    Raglan huh. Nice, surf's up! Place ,(like so many now, Piha, Bethels, Muriwai etc),is getting 'civilised'.
    Don't know about this 'Mainland' stuff though. Bit of Southerners insecurity there maybe?

    Yea, probably, but it's just a laugh really...her son and family live at Edgecumbe, near Whakatane. And her older brother is in Paihia, so we get around usually once a year. I could easily move there, but her 2 other kids are here in AUS. Cheers

    Yeah, there is just a little bit of rivalry between the Islands. Stewart Islanders think of themselves as Kiwis but Chatham Islanders do not. Hell, even in the Land of Ork people on Waiheki don't consider themselves to be Orks, Neither do many on the North side of the mighty Waitamata.
    Bit like you I have friends spread out all over the place and both siblings are now Aussies. I suppose at the end of the day we are all Southerners to the Northern Hemisphere.

    Unfortunately, said in 1787, the words of Benjamin Franklin are showing that our founding fathers had very strong insights.

    This article gives some perspective


    For me, this pretty much says it all.

    Hemmjo, well, that may be for you, but the religious spin is really just a copout the the real problems facing America today, the lack of compulsory voting as a requirement of citizenship being the elephant in the room...but I will exit here with the politics, as firstly, this forum has always been nearly devoid of it and secondly, no forum will ever be capable of doing them justice in today's utterly unenlightened age. Nuff said, thank you for your contributions.

    Itís funny; I occasionally pick up wrenches or sockets from the local pawn shop. Last time I was there, I found all of their 10mm sockets were missing, too!

    10MM sockets are one of the most used sizes so I guess that's why they go missing.
