Celeb watch.

Currently, my FB news feed is littered with my deranged family and friends and their photos of the All Blacks who have, apparently, been walking around Napier like commoners. It's too wet to go anywhere in The Bay at the moment. The best photo was of one of the players through a window and he was trying to put his hoodie on to avoid the groupies trying to snap a shot of him through the window.

Speaking of groupies.
Nice one Joel. (right)

Who knew Izzy Dagg was a selfies man.
If you wanna be a groupie in Hawkes Bay, Ahuriri is the spot on a Saturday night.
Not that it's going to matter, because it's Argentina, but Dagg hasn't yet been recalled to take up a position in the infamous team for this weeks test.
Salve Argentina!

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!
