    Indeed Burwood Hospital is a magnificent facility with great parking too. The Cafe there is also great as Joybel says  and they do a pretty good roast there for $8.90  my friend told me last Wednesday when Desi and I met him in cafe.I enjoyed my cappuchino whilst I waited for my 101 years young mother in law to have her Day surgery.Cheers 😀

    It is that time again when the old folks are reminded to have their flu injection. I always trot along and have mine. Have to sit twenty minutes after in case of an adverse reaction. Have not had the flu for decades and no bad reactions to the jab. A bit like the annual reminder to replace the batteries in the fire alarms. One is no relation to the other apart from from both being great for my good health. Yet many, for reasons, unfathomable, simply ignore both these options.

    Joybel Thanks for that reminder. We are lucky here @harper Gardens they change our smoke alarm batteries  at daylight savings times.

    I am horrified to read this morning of rampages by children in Kaikohe, stealing, vandalising some as young aas 11, out in the early morning hours. Why are parents not held to account for their childrens actions? And when Maori Wardens do such a good job in other areas, are they not operating up north in these constant trouble spots? The police force is not established to look after children, that is the job of parents.

    Yep, just the beginning as youth have little responsibility and cannot be charged with offenses. Where will it be tomorrow? Adults cashing in on it.

    I have heard of cases of that happening already Joybel. Gang members getting underage Criminals to do their dirty work while they take the profits.

    Bryan in my senior position I have lived through so many changes in society initiated by youth from flower children to communes to growing hemp in every hideaway for its wasting ability to make life a dream world, to pants hanging below the crotch, various hairstyles. protest parades and now banner waving. Free abortions, All demanding what the Govt. do to make life better. I remember John F. Kennedy saying, ” Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather what you can do for your country” It seems that the list of needs has grown so great that many are not even receiving necessary help while those who think the world owes them are getting free board and lodgings. what is a calamity is that they are now being forced to double up in the cells. While in the towns and cities as many as fifteen are living in a three bedroom house. The world has lost the plot, methinks and I am concerned for my own family members approaching retirement but just may miss the 65 yr date.
