Welcome to my new blog. (I had hoped it would be a bit more flash before I welcomed you. However, I am so sick of my comments not working on the old blog that I have moving anyhow.)

Again, welcome. My blog is like my new house in Christchurch. Still not unpacked properly, but please feel comfortable. Please, have a seat. Wine, beer, soft drink. How are you?

  1. Hello to you too! I’m fine. Thanks for asking. How about putting a link on your old site so your fans can follow you here……to your nice clean ‘house’ – wiped free of fingerprints!

  3. hi, Steve, it’s 7.30 pm here in Cambridge UK,. so mine will be a chilled white wine – thanks! And here’s to your good health. I like the way the new site is shaping up – in fact, I’m beginning to feel that I might have to do something a bit cooler with mine! Next time I get a holiday, I’ll call in the experts.

  4. Yes, I’ll take a beer as well. Thanks. Oh, I’m doing well! Congratulations on your new homes (both virual and real).

    I have a blessing for them:

    “Arriving in a new place

    Lord, we offer you our conflicting feelings,
    Our apprehensions and our aspirations,
    The strange bed, the changed roles, the fear of the unknown.

    Risen Christ, we acknowledge that you are in our midst.
    Circle this place and make it your own.
    Keep peace within, keep evil out.
    May all memories, influences or powers that are not of you
    flee from this place.
    May the angels guard and welcome us all.

    We turn our eyes upon you.
    Calm us and settle us.
    Help us to feel at home with you and with one another
    So there is no need to pretend.
    Help us to be at ease with ourselves
    And to look upon these new faces as your family.

    – by Ray Simpson, Northrumbria Community”

  5. I’m fine, mate! I stumbled across your blog from the other kiwi (you know, that “tall skinny one”!). Anyway, best wishes for the new year and the new blog!

    Oh, and make mine a Newcastle nut-brown ale please.
