solar-powered, graphene-energy storage-fueled - water homes of light: future architectural thinking.
a favorite recent post - all i.t is written across light… therefore we are light, in the world.
history: 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. :)
good momentum of the day: 11th feb 2013: a Kiwi songstress, kimbra, wins a grammy x 2. whoot! And: was able to help one nz business, (a pop & mom investor’s business), make inroads with their new product into the usa.

Although the spirit of Waitangi Day lies in honoring Maori inclusion as equal business partners with The Crown each day, Waitangi Day celebrations are “to give us a full sense of nationhood” du jour in agreement for all that New Zealanders as a team are trying to achieve.
To stay in agreement with the principles of Waitangi’s foundational spirit (to see others different to ourselves as equals) is the benchmark of respect in New Zealand that our founding fathers and mothers hoped for, when they as intelligent and adventurous people inked a deal to uphold justice – in the concept of communities evolving and being strong trading partners working together for the good of Aotearoa, NZ.
Prime Minister John Key said, he believed Waitangi Day was a valuable opportunity for discussion and stood by his commitment.
“How will history judge [us]? History will judge [us as New Zealanders] well because [we] come back year after year.”
He also urged the iwi [Ngapuhi] involved in the Te Hiku collective to sort out their differences and move toward a settlement, saying it would inject as much as $200 million into an area that greatly needed it.
Ngapuhi has over 20% of the Maori population. Ironically, the tribe is one of the last to settle with The Crown. So, a timely speech from the PM to Ngapuhi.

TTG, NDA GROUP, AG-SCI & WHAT GREG MUIR’S TEAM COULD DEVELOP NEXT FOR NZ FARMERS BEST INDUSTRY INTERESTS & ENDEAVORS
The agri-tech group finished 16th on the TIN100 survey of companies set up to improve technology and research. TTG splashed $73m for the acquisition.
What’s needed now is for a company like TTG, to develop the same thing with a banking software system invention, that can then track ‘white gold’ (aka dried dairy product with the water then extracted) around the world to see if NZ farmers are achieving the best brand leverage from dairy leaving the farm gate to distribution world wide.

“I know you’ll always give it to me straight, as only a friend can, telling me not only what I want to hear, but more importantly, what I need to hear to make the best possible decisions on behalf of the [people]… Gets it done. And that’s the kind of focus, but also the kind of heart, that [we] want.”
~President Obama on Denis McDonough‘s of Stillwater’s selection as new Chief of Staff, the position originally held by Rahm Emanuel. What all leaders need are honest people around them. Being afraid to tell the truth, doesn’t help leaders at all. What we need to hear, always comes at great cost. It shouldn’t though, it should be normal.

Naomi Watts, Ashton Kutcher, Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey and Amanda Seyfried are joining Nicole Kidman and a bevvy of other stars to promote low budget indie films at Sundance Film Festival.
Sundance is the ongoing vision of pioneer mega-producer Robert Redford and his team. This year a focus on the indie film festival is the same as any other year of the festival. That being: “what is a movie star?” A movie star [on screen] is really someone who has the ability to make real human stories come to life while playing decent roles. Sundance always achieves that each year. (more…)
Some mothers do have ‘em… I for one am glad they did.
What’s on our minds in New Zealand is feeding the future leaders. Ensuring their futures don’t get encroached upon without the future leaders of existing NZ citizens having say, knowledge with truthful information as to how they see the direction of their own NZ heading.
Seriously though: Aren’t this lot the happiest birthday peoples ever?! Too much fun.

“Now the first movie has grossed more than $1 billion, [the studio] should repay the $67 million back to New Zealand.”
–Winston Peters said on Unexpected Journey. Unfortunately, Hollywood or (the US economy, structured in thin air on -$16trilli coin), doesn’t quite see it that way once the mullah goes into that economic machine.
For PJ & RT… it was an expensive platform then for the ROI… how it is.

It’s a very sad time for a New Zealand family. Patricia McGrath known as Wowo‘s tangi (a funeral) at Titoki, reminds us of why violence* in homes and domestic violence hurts communities, families and lives. Domestic violence always has tragic effects. Many lives have been healed and have recovered from it in a journey of recovery. For Wowo, sadly New Zealand lost a daughter, mother future grandma as a result of domestic violence.
Say no to domestic violence is the family’s message as NZ speaks. (more…)

Lady Diana‘s photo with Dorset deer farmer, Adam Russell, as a teen was publicized on NZ news this evening. As the pic came with instructions from the photog, “not to be published,” let’s go with this photo of Diana in a black hat instead.
The story goes, “as a person, she was complete alone” or with someone else quite special.
Those who knew her as a friend… glow (physically)… when they say her name. It’s quite amazing to witness her friends say her name and glow. Diana’s friends are all throughout California. Usually working, in some capacity, with USA’s billionaires to this day.
When their faces light up at the mention of her name, it is intriguing to observe…. She was quite a remarkable lady. (more…)
