NO cases of Covid AT ALL in N.Z. anymore, they say...
I hope nobody from Texas, Florida or Ca plan to go there and ruin the whole thing!

Couple of women from the UK went there, were given permission to break quarantine, went on a 400-mile trip to Wellington from Auckland, then tested positive for Covid and exposed dozens of people along the way, although fortunately they did not use public transportation.

Hey! If you're of the Limey persuasion, we're JUST JOKING! ;-)

BTW, I just saw a new revision today from 23 and Me, and, according to the latest break-down, I'm 45% British/Scottish/Irish - so I'm laughing WITH you, not AT you! ;-)

And that tends to balance out my 45% Polish/Slovak/Lithuanian portion. And not only that, but my Ashkenazy Jew proportion has been increased from 0.5% to 0.6%. OTOH, my Kraut percentage went way up: from 3% to over 6%. If this keeps up, I'm going to have to stop using the word, "Kraut"!

It's hard to keep up with what tribes you're in!

We do it on purpose. It's our heritage ;-).

You may like our government's stance on opening concert halls.They can open but are not allowed to put on live music.

And I bet those girls didn't even try speaking the language and just relied on the locals to speak English! Hope they mentioned the RWC2019 semi-final from last November as often as possible.
