Waiheke is only 23km west to east, and 12km north to south. It has a permanent population of only 8000 (which is said to swell to 30,000-40,000 at holiday peaks). It is a very special place to live, a village-rural community, beautiful and quiet, far from the madding crowd of big-city Auckland but with all its benefits only 35 minutes away by ferry, and in emergencies only 6 minutes away by helicopter ambulance from Auckland Hospital.
I am a born-again Christian, which means that my faith in Jesus Christ, God's Son, is the bedrock and mainspring of my life. Yes, God does exist. We can have a personal, moment-by-moment relationship with him; we can be part of his family through the way he provided: Jesus Christ.
I also have a number of other blogs. The main one, which has more posts than any other, is called EStar, the blog for my company, EStarFuture. Its blog is of course http://estarfuture.blogspot.com
The most important page (I think) at www.estarfuture.com is www.estarcar.com which outlines an advanced, innovative electric car that I designed. But the modest amount of capital to build it is lacking. Angel investors who care passionately about the planet (if you exist), please contact me...
