Greetings from Earth.

Watching TV tonight I came across the latest Warehouse commercial where they advised, "Spend less on what you need so you can spend more on what you want". That's the most stupidest thing I've heard all week and I thought nothing could top my brothers billy goat they got this week and named Batman.

Then lastnight there were lights in the skies over Hawkes Bay.

It's funny that despite the great technology we have in cameras and HD Camcorders, we still manage to get pictures that make you think twice. Dunno why it was hovering over Flaxmere of all places .. did their google maps not tell them the promised land was 5ks south-west in PA?

Then theres our baby cooking.
We'll call her (please-please-please-fingers-crossed) LC - obviously!
Sister will roast her till mid September.

She's number 16 .. but I did see a preying mantis on Tuesday and the only one I can think of is Michelle.
Only time will tell.

Preying mantis! From the way you used it it seems sighting one in your tradition means someone is going to get pregnant? Tell me more. Please :)

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
