  • Hard News: Schools: can we get a plan up…,

    A significant section of our local school in Wellington was found to be not earthquake safe (3 classrooms and the Hall). We were assured it should be fixed by next term, then the school decided they should build up due to significant roll growth, and of course that required ministry involvement...

    As of now, those classrooms and hall have been closed for two years (although the school did manage to buy an adjoining property to turn into a library, and got two port-a-cabin classrooms). Building has not yet started, and when(if) it does, it is unlikely to be completed before the end of the year. The whole thing is farcical.

  • Hard News: See you Latta, Bob ...,

    Right now he's telling me to eat another afghan

    Don't worry, that's in the bible too.

    "I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another's flesh during the stress of the siege imposed on them by the enemies who seek their lives. "

    Prov 13:24: "He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes (diligently)."

    Oooh. Are we doing bible quotes? How about:

    Psalms 137:9: "How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones against the rock"
