“To get my driver’s licence.”

“I don’t have one, I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions.”

“Mine is the same old boring one – get back into the gym.”

“To learn Te Reo Maori properly and get back to the gym and get fit.”

“To swim 1km, it was my resolution last year but I never did it.”

Matthew Wallace Berhampore “To catch a crayfish with my bare hands.”

Cycleway danger Dear Ed, I know people are sick of the cycle lane, but just have to write as my life has been put in danger, and having reached the age of 80 I do not want to end it doing what I love to do and that is drive. The Parade is now a dangerous narrow two lane

street, it is no longer worthy of the name The Parade. If I try to exit my car, being disabled and having to fight the Wellington winds it takes time, and I could be injured by a bus or a car, which has come up behind me during the time I have taken to exit

my car. No thought has gone into the fact that not all road users are nimble teenagers. The park outside the medical centre was a safe park, now the disabled are taking their life into their hands as they try to disembark from their cars.

A visitor I have from Brisbane was amazed to see The Parade as it is now, she stated it has gone backwards, into the dark ages, as cycle lanes should never be on main thoroughfares. Heather Bevan Island Bay

THE NEXT STEP FOR PLANET EARTH? Are you over wars, terrorism and ongoing conflicts? If the rulers of this planet didn’t want them we wouldn’t have them. Selective informing, (telling us what to think) has served them well for thousands of years. It is called reigning over. Are we adult enough to do the reining in, to take control of, or responsibility for our planet? The information age has arrived. Insiders, (first person experiencers), women and men are gutsy enough to speak out. All we have to do is start listening to them and informing ourselves. Sitting in church being held to an Earth and physical only reality isn’t adult enough to be in charge of the destiny of a planet. We have to understand how the universe works to be aware of possible risks, threats or opportunities. The church version of reality does hint at the different levels of reality occupying the same space, (with the spirit word), but cuts them off with the one word cover story – heaven.


The Human Parasite Story Tellers Responsible for the Earth and Physical Only Stories. Came up with and oversee the King James and myriad of other versions spread around the planet. The Royals with the superior, class loving, born to rule and exploit mind pattern. And their bloodline relatives with the obsessively maintained knife edge, (oddball) genetics – the Blue Bloods. That we are being lied to is revealed on the Prison Planet Revelations .com website – videos and Gods or Spacemen? audio. How the genetic mix (hiding our parasite) came about is also on the website – Hidden History videos. Why it came about is in the Prison Planet Revelations book.

months. Hailey told the Cook Strait News last year that many kiwis were unaware of how many children got soaked by the rain because their parents could not afford wet weather gear. “Even if it is just gumboots and raincoats we can help in a little way,” she said.
