There is a lot of misinformation out there on the web, and a lot of morons out there who say stupid stuff. Every now and then, I get a chuckle out of it, but this? This was something special. I just couldn’t wait to share it all with you, but I had to… I was […]Read More What on earth???
I was reading the news this morning when I came across an interesting Instagram post from the New Conservative party. In the (most likely) case you haven’t heard of them, they’re a conservative Christian party down here in New Zealand. They’re everything you would imagine a conservative Christian party to be. Anti-abortion? Check. Anti-euthanasia? Check. […]Read More This gave me a little laugh today.
People around the world are focused on the upcoming US election, and for good reason. But in two weeks’ time we have our own election coming up, and I already know who I’m voting for!

[…]Read More I got tested for Covid-19.
Ah so much has changed in the space of only ten days in New Zealand. Ten days ago we only had 6 cases of Coronavirus, and they were all linked to overseas travel. Back then, the government implemented bans on large public gatherings greater than 500 people. The idea that we should go into lockdown […]Read More Going into lock down.

The Waihou River is entirely spring fed, […]Read More Discovering the Spring of Youth.
Yesterday, me and a friend went and saw this movie Hotel Mumbai. Hotel Mumbai is a thriller film based on real life events, where some indoctrinated terrorists shoot up a train station and hotel (among other places). Both my friend and I had seen plenty of action movies, but this was something different. Hotel Mumbai […]Read More Love is bigger than hate.
Last weekend, me and some mates went for a walk over the Kaimai Ranges.
