One of my favorite photos: The day after it was taken, snow fell in The Valley. The image sort of sums up what media do worldwide: angels of news.

Graham Clan Traditional Tartanhistory: Graham tartan, as published in the Vestiarium Scoticum. The Graham family of the Cruickshank-Montrose-Graham families were responsible for overturning the law that once prohibited Scottish people from wearing their traditional colors. Courage in freedom and liberty’s truth and a quest for the highest good has always been a marvellous family trait as a rule for most… though, we have all had our fair share of fumbles and trying moments too. :)

Ian and Jamie NZhitting up the fair today… a farming community having fun.

how it was: up at the fair, the young farmers club regional contest is on.

craig williamson from methven-ashburton way is the sponsoring bank’s m.c. as the farmer contestants compete in a constructed obstacle course.

it’s nothing flash: eggs, giant cream trifle squares in plastic containers, forestry, utes, pruning pine trees then felling pine trees to fall on a black balloon, loading quad bike trailers with green fence posts, looking for electronic tags in hay bales, solving concrete blocks puzzles, strainer posts fencing games are what the farmers do over an interesting rural soundtrack barrage of coded farming commentary: it’s all a bit potty, laden with otago gold dig & s-land slap stick comical references to help our farmers out. all done in heavy-undertoned rural humour (heavier than previous years of farming scene observes, i might add) with a serious business face to boot, for sure. the mc truly clever in their craft.

c-bury is in a land so far away to these farmer’s community’s realities, in local terms i question its strong presence at the event’s location. it does recognise diversity of region in nz perhaps, to entertain a group of particular farmers. in farming banter terms souther-exotic even. they’re good sports, they don’t react to the invasion of their consciousness at a cultural-community regionally-proud ag-level in their own right.

the amusing mood? farmers kindergarten-activities for grown ups – meets lots of enthusiastic support. a good crowd to be in. it is harmless fun in the sun.   Read the rest of this page »


On the wall of vertical water in his living room, David inserted the chip. Up came the scroll, of his peoples’ seasonal thanksgiving karakia. The words swam across the wall of incandescent water as he read their life-giving words:

“Eyes of God,

watching over the land and its people,

you reflect on our place in the world.


The season has changed, safe weather for long voyages begins,

the stormy seasons are now past.


Oh, sailing stars above us,

you are peace and plentitude on the land.”
