Central Otago this weekend - Friday 7th Sept

I'm desperately typing away - want to get a nasty draft complete before I head up to Central Otago this weekend - with my friends Mark and Dhana. It will be good to get out of town. For the Minnesotans reading this, it is kind of equivalent to 'heading up north' - only Mark and Dhana live in Central Otago (Alexandra), so it would be equivalent to living permanently in Northern Minnesota.

It took me about two hours this morning to sort out power for my 'flat' (I move in Sunday evening / Monday) - instead of one power company there are at least 6 of them, and they all have a variety of rates. Took me a while to figure out which would be the best deal, but that is now done.

As always, I am enjoying the local newspaper.

From the 'round-up' in the weekend paper ...
