    Fair enough gabyone, sorry about that.
    I’ll amend that to read “…no others are in the warming scam camp…”

    A pity no others are willing to apologise for making offensive remarks.

    Given we discussed your claim climate change is a scam and as you couldn’t show any evidence of it being a scam then I would suggest it is you who should apologise to Paulinem for saying it is a scam.

    On the other hand the debate on nzissues might be more challenging as there might be more knowledgeable people there like Kragus was on here in the past.

    Cheers 🙂

    Hero : I remember Kragus as being very knowledgeable & interesting.

    So far on NZ issues people seem to be brief & to the point without pontificating as we see at times on here. So it may not suit those just wanting to challenge any opinion that differs from their own. Personally I prefer to weigh various opinions without feeling pressure to commit to a particular belief. In my life I have noticed that not much is actually either black or white ( for the want of a better way to describe)

The Obituary came out just fine paulinem and I must agree with the sentiment it detailed.

What a lovely day to wake up to,no blinding sun, the gardens nicely dampened from light rain, unfortunately no sign of any useful rain, just a lot of hope. Too bad we cannot exchange some of our weather with Westland, my sympathy with those flooded out.

How vague are the age categories we are so often fitted into,if trhe average lifespan of a male is 84 years, is middle age 42? When do we become seniors, is there an age when we are classed as old, or do we just decide according to how we feel? The vaguest of all is ELDERLY, what on earth does this mean? Is this indefinate meaning because we are all so different that we cannot be caterorised? At age 93 I feel safe calling myself old. Am I right?
