Shipping News volume 26

Filed under: Shout out — Tony Bridge @ 10:11 pm

Kia ora tatou:

The more observant among you may have noticed the shift in the profile details in the sidebar to the left. I am now ensconced (a painful surgical process..) in my Art Deco flat in Ranfurly. Again I extend a warm welcome to any of you passing by or who want to come for a couple of days.

I have hardly had time to breathe before a major project has come up. More about it as the dust settles… nice to see the snow retreating back along the eyebrows of the Hawkdun Mountains and those long languid G&T evenings beginning…

At the moment my website is undergoing a refit, a bit like Grandpa’s axe or a RNZAF Hercules. When it is done, the dead pages will be gone, a gallery ( that I can edit) will be in, and Blueprintx will be brought into the site and blended with it. Please tell me if there is anything I should change/add/improve.

My apologies to those of you I have been tardy in getting back to-bandwidth has been a real issue for some time, but now I have made a (Faustian?) pact with Vodafone for their new Wunder3G broadband service, I should be able to reply a lot more promptly.

Enough of the plumbing news.

I promise a really serious post next time-if I have the nerve to post it!

Ka kite ano



  1. Best of luck with the various changes, Tony. I do hope you get a chance to kick back and relax in those delightful evenings — but given the forecast for the next few days, you might have spoken too soon ;^)

    Sorry I won’t be around on 1 December for the Selwyn gallery show. Another big trip down South at the end of the year would’ve been great — but I’ll be in some mighty fine places elsewhere… :^D

    Ka kite a tera tau, e hoa.
