That was a really interesting read thanks D4th :D

I also had a look at the Jobs page :)) It was weird seeing Maine, Bangor, Penobscot in print other than in a Stephen King book (my favourite author)

Well, he lives just down the street
from me.......

A very decent and actually NORMAL
human being, to tell the truth :D

There's just this one little corner of his head.....................................................................

That little corner has produced some brilliant reading material.
Now I know you live near him, I shall expect an autographed copy of The Green Mile or IT or The Stand in the post =)) =))
Also, I demand that he read "Lacey's House" by Jo Graham and then reviews it for her (he is her favourite author too and she would wet herself) =)) =))

Shouldn't be too difficult? :p

I'm not quite so sure gaz . Read the comments from some of his Kiwi compatriots regarding his going on holiday instead of attending the 2 Kiwi soldiers' funeral. Killed in action in Afghanistan, where he sent them. If this was Bliar would you have the same opinion of this 'Feel good' story.

All I can say is he's been PM since 2008.....

How does this match the timeline for Kiwis
going to the Middle East????

I dunno, but we have no palm trees or sand
beaches in Bangor, and sitting on a hard set
of bleachers watching son Max play B-ball
doesn't sound like much of a "Holiday" to me...

It must have been a hard decision for him, but
there are times when the living outweigh the
dead....

I'll go have a look and post-up some more media
tomorrow, but I regret to report that NZ has not
to my knowledge done very well so far :((
