Auld Lang Syne

Whether or not a new decade starts tomorrow, a new year does.

Whether or not you call it New Years Eve or Hogmanay, there’s only one song to sing at midnight:

May 2010 be full of love and laughter and be kind to you and yours

    Small story HP: in 1968 first year Uni hols, my mate Ed King and I were picking cherries for Taylor Brothers in Conroys Gully, in Alex. We heard that it was all on in Wanaka, wherever that might have been??? So we two upped on my BSA Gold Flash 650 and set off to Wanaka. Half way there, I blew a head gasket. We got to Wanaka, had a walk around, and turned around and rode very slowly back to Alex…Not the greatest of NY’s Eves: finished up having to ship by train the bike back to Auckland. There were scant BSA dealers in Alex in those days selling BSA head gaskets!
    So now I ride someone else’s bikes through SE Asia! And in March on my big bike through the Five Passes of the South Island!!
    Happy New Year all our correspondents and friends and even a Yo! to Poneke. ka kite! and greetings from Mangawhai.

    ps In the Employment Law course I teach in the Business School at Ak Uni, I still vouch for John Taylor as the best person I ever worked for, except, of course for my current employer, Paul Tremewan and Associates!!!

    Paul T you brought to mind my first motor bike ride , around 1958, went to the carpet factory nearby in Riccarton for a swim in a pool there, didn’t seem to have any trouble with access, and I put a rather upmarket ‘Triumph’ down and puny little bugger I was, had to ask a bystander to help me get the bike back up before anyone I knew saw the problem. All very low speed and just a scuff on a peg from memory.
    All the best for 20 ten to the H P family, specially you, Ele and yours.
    Regards Murray
