If it's any help there's houses for sale up here in Taranaki and TSB has a real good mortgage interest rate at present!
Just a little light relief!

Freemind-- There are none so blind as those that stand in glass houses and thow stones at those on the outside who look in from a different angle.

Well we wouldn't have much worry there would we Bryan. He who thinks he should be obeyed has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms anyhow and I do lust after his rental property. If I was going to make any long distance move you could guarantee it would be to the 'Naki, New Plymouth certainly does it for me and for a couple of the others who have visited.
Trouble is he and his wife and our Wgtn based daughter who all own this house can envisage it as a place for their 4 kids to dwell in while at Uni, obviously they could be thinking of residential care for us by then Or maybe that we will have popped our clogs/or some other family member is giving us refuge.
Lovely day in Paradise, the sun is shining, gentle breeze and Freemind can go take a running jump. I am no Ken Ring fan but it cannot be any coincidence that we get more rumbles around the new moon. So there

Imagine being inspecting down a manhole when Sundays shocker struck. having wet washing underfeet is nearly as bad when the knicker crisis is worsening.
The worst in four months and the happy expert says its to be expected. Can't helping worrying about how the house is coping with each new one though. He calls them aftershocks!! Does that mean that one can still claim on damage. One can always hope .

Slow, creeping earthquakes lasting up to 30 minutes are taking place deep beneath the Alpine Fault on the South Island's West Coast, regarded as New Zealand's most hazardous fault line.
Scientists have been puzzled for decades by an apparent absence of earthquakes in the central section of the Alpine Fault, between Fox Glacier and Whataroa Valley 50km to the north.
But a study led by Victoria University Geophysics Professor Tim Stern found the area often experienced seismic tremor, or a series of slow, creeping earthquakes that each last up to 30 minutes.

Just been 'Googling' for something and noticed an "end is nigh' site" clicked on it, as the prediction was for the 27th May 2012. According to the author of many books on the subject, due to Christ's coming as WW111 descend, and the nuclear bombs will destroy us.
