I Made a Shed

Firstly, I am appalled by the mass shooting in Christchurch that happened last Friday. Obviously, the actions of a handful of disturbed individuals do not reflect the views of the the vast majority of New Zealanders. Our thoughts go to the family and friends of those killed and also to the injured and their loved ones.


It’s a Hot and Dry Summer Here in New Zealand

Canterbury is one of the driest areas in New Zealand but even by Canterbury standards this summer has been exceptionally dry and there is a worry that we may have forest fires of the like that the Nelson area has been experiencing. My folks are visiting in March, so I’m sure it will rain then, but I’m hoping that it rains tonight, as forecast, as we need it.
