Potato quality photo’d I agree…but I was working…and that’s all the car webcam caught whilst driving past…..

20150314_8994

PANO_20150315_092213

…..does anyone in NZ remember Paul?

10-03-2015 Cawthron

Seems some NZ City Councils, even small ones like in Nelson ….

10-03-2015 good

spent like a NZD$1m to get “the name out there” BUT I ask could there be a better way (taking Paul into account)

Here above is my OPEN LETTER to KIWIs everywhere…

So if not a Kea how about a marine version….kinda like Paul….NZ actually has a few of these and thats exactly why I included a photo of NZs pre-eminent marine research authority located in…where else…NELSON.

Surely they can come up with something. Or NIWA s local Nelson office might beat the Wellington Head Office if they get their heads together tomorrow!

Neat sayings…

20150228_7421

…there are…on the back of most Mainfreight trucks.
