BLOGS: A blog, simply put, is something you have written, or written about.

We have a forum you can post pictures, recipes or jokes you want to share; these are not considered blogs and will be removed. On the other hand, for example, a recipe with a story about a recipe that has special meaning would be fine. Greetings to others, thank you's, etc. are not considered blogs and will be removed.

Summer Delights
Posted On 05/23/2015 23:55:51 by kiwibarb
Living on an island had a charm all its own, but there were times when we felt it necessary to return to civilisation temporarily. Even the Old Salt, who owned the play boat Popeye, and whose life was the sea, occasionally felt the need to depart from his usual activities and try something different.He had a camper van, otherwise known as a motor home, and (even at his advanced age) a girlfriend, whom we called The Mermaid. The pair of them took off in the camper van to the most northerly tip of... Read More

Mention “Blackberry” today, and people think of smart phones. To me, the word conjures up yet another happy memory from my distant past.New Zealand today bears little resemblance to the New Zealand of sixty or seventy years ago. Most of the country was farmland, and our export products were butter, meat and wool. They still are, to a more limited extent. Farming is no longer the lucrative industry that it used to be.Although my family were town dwellers, we still had access to numerous far... Read More

Most people accept clocks for what they are. Devices that indicate what the time is, in a world where mostly it matters what the time is. Others regard clocks as intrusive mechanisms that tick your life away, or wake you up with their noisy alarms or chimes.Well, I like clocks. For me, they hold a lifelong and ongoing fascination. I would like to have had a lifetime of collecting clocks, but that would have been highly impractical given the number of times I have moved house. Packing up to shift... Read More

The Bronze Medallion
Posted On 03/20/2015 23:27:45 by kiwibarb
I grew up in a society in which we had to do something in order to achieve recognition. If we didn’t come up to scratch in our end-of-year school exams, we were not pampered into the next class. We were doomed to repeat that same year’s work again, and again, until we reached proficiency, before we were promoted to the next level. It may have been a bit harsh, but the end result was that all who were not intellectually handicapped, finally left school completely literate. Sadly, there wasn... Read More

Songs For Grandma
Posted On 03/15/2015 14:32:02 by kiwibarb
Singing was a feature of my life as a child, and I have previously recorded in a blog how my English father established and perpetuated the habit that his two youngest daughters, my sister Hazel and myself, were quick to pick up. Dad, Hazel and I all sang in the choir at church in the early 1950s. As a young mother, I sang to my four daughters and encouraged them to sing too. We always sang in the car, especially on long trips, and our favourites included the songs from the popular radio Childr... Read More
