No. I'm not from New Zealand or down under, I'm a Yank, a former forester from the US who is now an IT guy of all things. I have a good friend who was in the New Zealand Forest Service for 7 years though, and I love the accent! I wish I could say I could contribute a lot here, and it looks like a great bunch of folks, but I'm a hard workin' stiff with a family, and I don't have an abundance of spare time. Anyway, I have joined quite a few of these sites during this contest, and I'll be evaluating those that I can make the best contributons to and those that will be the most worth what time I have after it's all  over. Right now, it's taking all my time just getting into the contests! Anyway, to those of you meeting in ChristChurch in July, I'd love to shout you a slice and an ale, but unless I win the lottery I'm afraid I can't make it. Good luck to everyone. Hooray!

Well Tony, I hope you'll shout me a tall, cold one when you win. I'll feel better!

Thanks nzbnw! I may be intermittent, but I'm still around. Not sure where to start with the forums though, there's a bunch of 'em. If I find anything I can conribute to, I'm guaranteed to run off at the mouth. If I get to wordy, just insert beer...  :O)

Thanks, kinetic! And congrats on the sweet Mac system. I was just reading Mark Twain's chapters on New Zealand and Australia in "Following the Equater: A journey Around the World." He was quite impressed in his day. I'd love to come down and visit both countries some day. I'd love to get a map of the world like we have at our Outback Steak Houses around here. It's upside down with Australia at the top. Gives a body a new perspective on things. Whoever said north was "up" anyway! Cheers!

Forester1: Outback Steak Houses!


Ooo I've been to one of those, but still can't figure out why I travelled halfway around the world to eat food we serve at home and in Australia! Anyways I thought it was quite good.

LOL! It would be like me coming down there for a McDonald's Big Mac! Actually, we don't go to the Outback much because my wife complains they give you too much food. My thought is "And there's a problem with that?". I think that's why we have take-home boxes....   :O)
