Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    • Te Reo Putake 1.1

      Yep! Kick off at 10.10, Isaac Luke’s first try about 10.11, I reckon.

    • Morrissey 1.2

      Go the Chiefs, you mean. Much more entertaining fare at the same time as the mud-wrestling.

  1. Private Baldrick 3

    Eloping with my turnip.

    Two more nights left of “Much Ado About Nothing” from a ten night season- Shakespeare is gruelling but worthwhile fun, and very much up to date, still, with universal themes and characters.

    Don Pedro. “I think this is your daughter.”
    Leonarto. “Her mother hath many times told me so.”

    • McFlock 4.1

      always got a soft spot for shakespeare – mostly the tragedies, but then I’m a cynic :)

    • Dan1 4.2

      A brilliant show Mac1! How do you remember all those lines and impart so much wisdom! My main connection and enjoyment with Shakespeare has been with the tragedies, and so I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed your show.

    • freedom 6.1

      Twas a fantastic weekend.

      Great speakers, plenty of energy and sustainable domestic gardening has a whole bunch of new converts. Big thanks to all who braved the weather and supplied the smiles.

    deep set in the house

  7. Went to,our eldest son’s capping ceremony in Hamilton /
    A very proud moment for these working class parents from a very poor area of East London who left school at 14 years old .This is what the Labour Party is about.It also tells us that our NZ citizenship was correct ,

    • ghostrider888 9.1

      heard a story told in church this morning of a sister who stayed with a family in Vanuatu; only piece of furniture, one bed, which the home-owner insist she use. Five children, ONE book in the house (clue: the answer may, or may not be, apocryphal) and some of those children are graduates, one working for the U.N.) Education Education Education

    • Rosie 9.2

      Congratulations PP! Well done to your son and to you all as a family:-)

  8. Had the robot turned off all day because of the thunder storms.
    Just sneaked this wip in under the (rain) radar.

    One down, two to go.
