thought on this and that

Why do I have to enter a code on my tv to watch adult shows but anybody with my remote can upgrade or change my service without the code?

And why does the high school still make the students make title pages for reports? They did that in grade school and Otterboy is not happy about still doing it in 10th grade year 10. I don't blame him a bit.

I wonder, what it is about NZ that makes pine trees grow so much faster here than anyplace else in the world.

According to Nigel Latta, teenagers are brain-damaged but will outgrow it. That's a little bit of information that I cling to. He suggests treating them like you crazy uncle who doesn't really mean what he says or knows what he does. I like that.

There is snow on Mt. Taranaki--already. It seems like we only had two weeks of actual summer weather! I know we had more than that, but it sure doesn't seem to last as long as summer when I was a kid.

Why am I surprised that the NZ school system is adjusting the whole country's classes because the Rugby World Cup is coming to NZ? Maybe I have to be a rugby fan to appreciate it. All I know is ONCE AGAIN the NZ school system sucks by putting anything and everything  before the education of our children.

Sandfly Point, Flea Bay and Taylor's Mistake are place names in NZ.

It must be slow news in NZ if Charlie Sheen makes headlines.

Love your header pic. Is the soil very acidic in NZ?

That's a far piece that Charlie Sheen makes headlines. :( I'm so so sick of these celebs who have way too much money that they don't know how to be a sensible human being. Bleck!

Please tell me Charlie isn't there too. Surely there is someplace on earth....
Love Nigel Latta assessment of teens. That really is a scary age.
Fun post.

Good to know about a different view of NZ.

I love that comment about teens. Sadly, Charlie Sheen is brain-damaged too, but he shows no sign of growing out of it.

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie...he's everywhere on the telly. I think he's lost the plot but I'm still unable to stop watching him. It'll die down soon and then we can get back to the real news.
