+All Blacks Depart From Wellington (1953-1954)

Stop the traffic, just for an All Blacks 'parade', I don't think so sonny Jim :)

The way the crowds stand around and stare is quite remarkable. That there are crowds at all on a wet Wellington day is equally outstanding.

Of course an All Black tour was a BIG deal with tours separated by years and lasting months. Reputations that lasted lifetimes could be made or destroyed and the chance to take on the Northern Hemisphere teams wasn't an annual end of season deal as it is these days.

I'm happy we don't wait so long between tours but would love to see the return of a 'proper' tour schedule that allowed visiting sides the chance to acclimatise, settle in and have a few cracks at the home side - like the Lions.

For all the IT ("CS", computer science) teachers out there in New Zealand.

I know Google isn't targeting NZ with this post butvther are a number of resources that can be called upon.

Who says deep AND beautiful can’t go together? Deep sea invertebrates of New Zealand.
Kareen Schnabel

The deep ocean around New Zealand harbors an incredible amount of diversity with the region considered a biodiversity ‘hot spot’ for many groups. The NIWA Invertebrate Collection captures a large portion of the diversity as we know it today with samples collected around the southwest Pacific region and the Ross Sea, Antarctica, over the last 60 years. Kareen will be delving deep and bring up a few of her favorite stories and specimens.

Kareen is the Collection Manager of the NIWA Invertebrate Collection in Wellington and the mastermind behind the weekly Critter of the Week on the NIC Facebook page. When she doesn’t herd deep-sea specimens and scientists in the collection, she describes deep-sea squat lobsters at her microscope and desk.

Wow, very cool for us history buffs (that's a word, "buffs" that demands to sit next the word "history" :)

Argh! I want the new Google Camera app but it only runs on 4.4+

Lens Blur in the new Google Camera app is a great feature to make me even more jealous!

Yes, this is how the UK think of NZ. And I think we come out of this really well.

And no upward inflection which is the essence of being Kiwi :)

The service was friendly but the food took a while to get to us and when it arrived it was ok food trying to be something better. It costs more than it should.

Relaxed, amazingly knowledgeable staff and one of, if not, the best beer choices in the southern hemisphere. Visiting Wellington without coming to HZ is like visiitng your home town and not going to [insert your favourite bar].

The food was excellent and way too much for our birthday stomachs so they happily packaged it up and we took it home

Finally, a bar that serves great beer in a comfy, relaxed atmosphere being less uptight than Hashigo Zake, with more room than LBQ and less 'main street' than Malthouse. I love this bar and it's now my local (I haven't been able to say that about a Wellington bar for such a long time)
