For many people New Zealand’s remoteness where nothing much ever happens holds huge appeal.
On the other side of the ledger we do miss out on a lot. For example, while we’re daily told of the rest of the world basking in global warming, once again we’ve miss out, the national weather agency (NIWA) reporting two record cold months in a row.
Still, it’s not all bad and just occasionally we have some massive excitement, as the Stuff Website reports. It showed a large photo of a miserable looking Timaru bloke standing beneath some pretty Spring blossom. And the story. He’s upset at such foliage extending beyond people’s boundaries. By God, that should make the front pages of the world’s press.
