Gore and/or Invercargill, unless I'm much mistaken. One of my earlier known
ancestors set up a jeweler's shop there around the time of the gold rush.

Currently I'm living in Waitaha/Otautahi, where the current Super 12
champions are. Not that I'm a great Buggery Football Union fan, - I much
prefer more open field codes like Aussie Rules - and I never grew up among
the bum-sniffers (bad luck if your favourite gas is selfproduced methane!) -
but it doesn't hurt to keep in touch with popular culture.

You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
