    Meanwhile our F Club shirts arrived back at the beach...angry  With my GT3 that was supposed to hit Auckland in July on hold....  I'm thinking about getting a 458 or HGTE  until Porsche get their act together on GT3.  The jokes about GT3s at the Porsche dinner last night were scathing........

    Here's the largest gold mine in NZ, the Martha Mine over in Waihi.  It's a pretty tiny pit for old copper porphyry geologists like me, but still fun.

    Age 93 in human years, and Sun can still do three miles!  Blanca spoiled them so a little chub has to go, he's a little wobbly in the legs, but its almost a year since the surgeon claimed he was about to die of Lou Gehrig's diseasekiss

    Much as we loved cruising with Benson, It's good to have his Lordship back as co-pilot and Sky as rear gunnerwink
