Joel, Chelle, Tayla, Sandy,Jamie and Graham as usual is giving instructions!!!!
Yes it is that time of the year again Grahams birthday, he is not counting anymore. We all went out to Clevedon to the Log Cabin. It was a beautiful Summers day or should I say the 1st of March is the beginning of Autumn here in NZ. We have had a very long hot Summer starting way back in October and in the last six months we have only had three rain events. It is very dry and still the sun shines.
It has been very sad in NZ with the Christchurch Earthquake and all the misery that it has caused. We of course live in the Ring of Fire and we are known as the Shaky Isles.
We now are seeing the utter devastation of the Japanese Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Power Plant problems.
These events all come after the devastating Queensland floods and Cyclone. Perhaps after these three events the Pacific will all settle down and we can all rest a little easier.

We had a wonderful day at Waiheke Island with our friends Carrie and Trevor. We were celebrating Grahams birthday.
