Sad news

On our return to NZ we visited my mum. She is 91, went into hospital four months ago, moved to a rest home two months and has becoming weaker every day. The last thing she said to us was "good to have you home".

On Saturday, 4th of November (around midday) she passed away.
Miss you mum, you are with Jesus now.

Dad is 92 and still has a couple more years I'm sure.

Holiday in Japan - 2023

It has been a long time since our last visit... since just before the world went crazy.

UPDATE: We are home now. Had a fantasic time and should probably write a report...

I'm back... after having a little
subscription glitch

Though my domain name registration always renews at the same time every year, found myself leaving it a little late, forgetting that there might not be bank transfers on weekends. My cut off day fall on a Sunday. I made my payment on the Friday but have to concede it was very late at night.
My redemption came in the fact my service is based in the US and NZ is 18 hours ahead. SO... I did in fact pay in time.

Not so New news!

Naturally the news letters for the past fews years are still on line. I'll send you a link on request. ...

Back in the day, to have a blog meant you would have your own domain and write everything in HTML. None of this clever WISIWIG and data base driven forms.

The earliest example of my page that is still partially available at the WayBackMachine is from 2009. The data structure that used to support this doesn't work so none of the links will take you anywhere.
This 2011 version works well.
