    Maybe everyone is on the dole and at home sleeping?
    Or at work.
    If it's the weekend looks like a good day to stay home in front of the fire.

    ^ Just joking. All the Kiwi dole bludgers go over to Oz .. higher rate. It was dead as a door nail 20 years ago when I lived there. Doesn't seemed to have picked up.

    It's not that bad though.

    It's nice place to retire in. Good place to raise young kids.
    You can use logic to justify anything. That's its power. Itís also its flaw.

    I used to manage the "Strollaway Bar" in the square. Is that still there?

    How are the ducks going?
    I don't remember the Strollaway Bar, I'm guessing that it was in the corner by The Press building & along from Warners. Warners is now branded as a Novotel.

    People don't seem to be any more worldly wise (or maybe I just know the wrong people). Xenophobia grows quicker than GDP.

    Plenty of ducks around the Avon. The unemployed haven't taken to killing them for food yet - at least I haven't

    Some years ago two Chinese were arrested for grabbing a swan from western springs in Auckland.

    Things might have changed since those pics were taken, after this morning's quake.

    Might have shaken up the Ole town a bit.

    Oh, how I remember that day and the quakes yet to come over the coming months.

    A couple of shallow little nudgers this afternoon.
