huiatahi: WELL Done! That’s one that I forgot when I was changing our clocks. I do that every year too 🙁 Never mind I well do it when I have the car out (if I remember to).
don021, As Eltham is right up close I suppose we will go up in the first puff! Oh well I alway’s wondered what a volcano looked like, it’s just that I didn’t particularly want to see it from the inside! 😉
Well it looks like a good day coming so after Mrs Bryan is up and running it will be off to spend our pension for the fortnight! Have a good day all. Bye Bye……

It is now over a week since the last posting on this thread, and I wonder why. This used to be an active thread that a number of people regularly commented on. Now the silence is deafening. Is it because:-
a) those who had the temerity to post comments that could have resulted in discussion were hounded off the thread? (While I did not agree with most of the comments mommabear and critic made, at times they did offer items for thought.
b) people are not really interested in discussing those things that are going on around us each day? Maybe it is easier to criticise the person who makes a comment that provide rebuttal to their argument. (An analysis of previous posts clearly supports that theory)
c) the event of the Christchurch massacre resulted in a gagging effect because society had become super-sensitive to any suggestion of criticism? To be honest, I chose to limit my contributions to this thread because I could see my motives for my comments being misconstrued.
Watching the was both the world in general, and our country in particular, are going, it is highly likely that our ability to openly debate “what’s happening today” may be severely limited.
It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

halcyon, I would like to think that everybody is satisfied with life at present and have no wish to upset its placid pace. I can only comment on the strange weather which despite warnings of gales, heavy rain and flooding, has been calm and pleasant. I rolled the garden hose up yesterday and put it away, now I wonder if it will have to come out again.#1716761sir-nigel-gresleyMemberMember since: January 10, 2017

I thought everyone had been banned for some reason. Only popped in now, as I couldn’t sleep. 😉

Halycon, I wonder if others have also felt stalked by a person you mention as hounded out ? Quite some time back I found that poster seemed to have more of my personal information than I have chosen to be public on this site. There was a privacy breach on this site, quite some time ago & I wonder if that poster, under a different alias, had stored information from that breach.
In my opinion, discussions have become rather boring over a long period with little room for people who are not avid supporters of any particular political opinion. This has run over into discussions that previously were not intended to be part of politics.

I am a bit in the same boat. I do keep an eye on other threads from time t time but I do try to look in here every Dai I get a chance. As I no longer buy a newspaper (To Bloody Expensive) I read the news on line and poke my nose in here at the same time. Also Mrs health is less than good so that takes some time too!

Yes, Bryan, the paper is far too expensive for what it is. Online news is fine. I also only very occasionally look in at this forum; not what it used to be.
Anyway, you and your wife look after each other. I wish my husband was still here to look after.
Cold and windy here in NP, but crisp and clear.#1716768cook222MemberMember since: December 23, 2018

Like Gaby I felt a little bit stalked possibly by the same person. Mind you. since then I have made a point of going to people’s profiles and I find it very disconcerting that those who chose to do a profile it includes showing their full name in most cases

Thanks for the kind thoughts we are getting by (just at times) but have the support of family close by which is a help. But we don’t like to be a burden as they have a life to live too!
