If she was from New Zealand, wouldn't she be wearing a Made in New Zealand shirt? Based on what I can see, she could be from just about anywhere.

If you had the Peekatron 500 monitor like I do you would be able to scroll down and see the New Zealand tatoo on her bottom half.

If you enhance the image enough, you can see that she is in a studio in Auckland.

You can also tell that she had fruit and yogurt for breakfast.

I don't know what you boys are making a fuss about. She doesn't look any different from the rest of the women here. And to think, they've got us out numbered around here.......

Why did I get married before moving to New Zealand?

Oh, that's right, cause I met the best wife in the entire cosmos.

You're confusing us for the island that lies to the West of New Zealand.

And, just so we're not confused, I'm talking about the urban centers. Good luck to ya' if you're a guy living on a station on the South Island.

Hey Gnome,

Hows the cycling from Cchurch? Any hills a "reasonable" distance from the city. Or, do you have to head for the alps?

We just spent a weekend, a couple weeks ago, up the Ashburton gorge along the Potts river in the Haketere Conservation area. Absolutely awesome! The more I visit the South Island, the more I relate with it representing what New Zealand has always represented to me.

You're thinking of the sheep that outnumber the men.

There are the Port Hills right on our doorstep. The rest of the hills are a bit away.
