Great pics JJ, you have a nice family.

I'm a little worried about the pic of you with the ice cream. There's something strangly disturbing about it. Looks like a brain in a cone.

In fact its an ORANGE brain..

Yes, thanks for that. I do have a lovely watch that tells me the time you Kiwi Loon.

Its Christmas, I can stay up late. Its not like I get up at a silly time in a morning like some here....

Besides, I need to get my body clock ready for the 4th Test from Melbourne in a couple of days. I don't want to see an Aussie whitewash in the Ashes.

Lat time I checked, Canada was a Commonwealth member,
Chips - You find these in a bag, Thinly sliced potatoes , fried & crispy
French Fries - Usually square cut. Thick , usually square & served Hot.
Crisp, that is a cold morning. ie "The morning air was crisp"
Pop = Bubble soft drink
Soda - No such thing in Canada

Yeah Commonwealth but the next door neighbour to those Americans. Obviously some bad habits have rubbed off on you guys......

That's it!! They call it the Astina in NZ, but the Jap imported one is the Lantis. I bought it used in '98 with only 5500 km. on the clock. It's now got 83,000+ km,. but all I've spent on it is 2 sets of tyres and a couple of batteries.

It's a 5-speed stick shift, 4 cylinders with Twin Overhead Cam, 1800 cc engine.

Goes well!! And like everything I own, I love to take care of stuff!!

JJ

NZ$1.42 per litre = US$1 per litre = US$3.80 per US Gallon (3.78 litre).

Holy SH.........., !!! we are at about 2.28 / gal currently. we were at about 3.11 / gal about 5 months ago. 3.80 a gal. that sucks! but maybe the saleries and cost of living are different over thereand are in perspective to ours as well.

BTW, it getting close to Bluesville isn't it!

Price of gas there is quiet pricey! Price currently in Toronto is 0.86 cents/Litre (regular).

About 3.44 CDN/Gallon using xe.com for conversion, $2.97 USD/Gallon.

Still pricey compared to USA pricing.
