  • Actually yellowish green Seems like blog is almost history.  Given that today marks a significant event in our family history thought I should blog. Today Ket cat, aged 17 or more had a one way trip to the vet.  It would be a gross exaggeration to say Ket was a much loved cat, or even a lovable cat.  Mostly Ket used us for food, warmth and to open the door for her life.  Tony often commented that for Ket the other side of the door was where she wanted to be.  It is over 2 years ago we were told she likely had kidney trouble and that she could last for some time but at a point there would be a sudden detrioration ...

  • Know your Wurth - or because you are Wurth it Thought this story might make you smile - seems too long for a Hangout This morning one of our admin team asked me if I knew anything about a Paypal donation from Malta - my answer was No but it turns out I did…..On Monday Peter, the Arthritis NZ President  was telling the Board members that in the weekend he hosted Reinhold Wurth, who is No 143 on the Forbes Rich List, at his bach in Waipu.  One of Peter’s daughters is the nurse/crew member on the Wurth super yacht, pictured above, which has been cruising around NZ for a few months.  The Wurths were keen to experience a local family meal . . . For the lunch Peter provided his specialty ...

He's been a member longer than you guys have been alive so not surprising.The grounds themselves were being used by keen young cricketers who can now tell their friends that they trained on the MCG.The plushness (a word?) of the members areas compared to the relatively sparse press facilities stood out for me but we may not consider that the very partisan commentators who ...

  • 'Cats!' The presence of one or sometimes two dogs, one of which is extremely quick, at Divers has come as a shock to the cats here. We believed that they would all be gone but it turns out that they couldn't catch Cinnamon who had previously been having the vet's version of psychological treatment. Think it will be undone now. Being chased by enthusiastic dogs brings to mind (for you especially Adrian) the song, 'Oh Cinnamon, where you gonna run to?'The little grey cat they say is a stray was also quite quick when the dogs chased it upstairs last night...looks like it must have escaped through a window. It lives under the house and Lily is ...
