Never too old to set a goal

We are getting ourselves organised to go to Auckland tomorrow.  We now have a specific task for the weekend - to buy a house.  This is big forums.  Having trout about it foursome time we think it is time for us to have an investment property.  We have decided Auckland is the place to do this - does mean if we ever shift to Auckland we will have a place; it is the area of growth for NZ with well documented rental housing needs so tenants will be possible and finally if one of our children is paying rent in NZ and we can afford a second Mortgage we might as well get the rent and have reliable tenants. 

In a totally unrelated matter there is a hip hop dance group from Waiheke that is entering the national hip hop dance competition.  They would like to be the NZ team representatives at the world hip hop dance festival in Las Vegas later this year.  All this seems very reasonable and worthy but hardly blogable until you know that the group is all pensioners - youngest 65; oldest 95.  At least one of the members is in a wheelchair, several have sticks or walking frames.  

They apparently do flash mob appearances in Auckland - so maybe we will see them over the weekend.  I don't know what their skill levels are but you have to admire their determination and goal setting.  The photo is the group performing
