Happy headlines

From today’s ODT:

Soaring prices for lamb welcomed


Bonding scheme working, Key tells party


South is dodging crisis, says English


New businesses open in town


Flying school plans to open at airport


Tourists flock to colony

Apropos of the last story, on Friday Jim Mora’s panel discussed rural web cams  (at the end of part II) which are very popular in Britian with urban people.

I haven’t unearthed any in New Zealand, but Oamaru’s little blue penguin used to have a penguin cam. It’s not operating at the moment but the website says it’s coming soon.

    Well said Ele. Even up here in the metropolis of Wanganui, it’s not all doom and gloom. One of our major manufacturing plants (where I used to work) cut back production at the end of last year to a three-shift/five day operation. Last week they announced that demand is causing them to revert to a four-shift/seven day schedule, with 40 new jobs to be created. And our own business has grown by something like 30% in the first four months of this year, and we’ve added three staff in the last couple of weeks – we’re now no longer a “small” business, having passed the twenty mark!

    I meant to add – our catchcry for 2009 is “What recession?”!!
