Kia ora from New Zealand

Yes, I'm a dreaded Kiwi... but I've not been to the UK, so have left no wee welfare accoutrements behind.

I'm an old aged pensioner, retired from daily toil. I write a bit of poetry, some horror and sci fi fiction and love a drop of good oyzo. And I love to cook.

I administer a young person's writer's forum online, and teach poetry at a small schol here in Godzone.

Hi there, you can't imagine how much I'm enjoying this greeting message - the last 50 or so registrations we had were all spammers so - Hey look folks, it's a PERSON!

Welcome. smile

Re: Kia ora from New Zealand

Ta, girls.... now, can I interest you in some big pickture of me sister leg? Nice clean girl... wanting Kiwi/Engrish husband to make her richness. You got money?

Seriously, though, (and this is where the story really begins...) I'm delighted not to be Russian spam. I've been called a lot of things, but that's not one of them. I don't even like American spam... in a can, you know?

Now what do I do?

Now you give Kay a big hint that you would like your own section in the 'books' area because you have written more than one book, and the world is waiting...

Fine by me - I guess you could set one up, Cathy? (that's another big hint smile)

Hints? No good giving a man hints, girls! A brick on the head should work, though....

Love your strap-line! I used to have fun with those mini-biogs magazines always ask from contributors.

Oh good, I'm pleased you like it, Kay! I got bored with the traditional, self-aggrandizing bios, and Rat atouille gave me the chance to be stupid...

Cheers, John

Pleased to meet you, John! I know everybody in the world in space must have asked you this already and you're really tired of it, but is Kia Ora really part of somebody's language, then, and what does it mean?

Ah, a fellow Irvine!  Splendid!  I asked just a few days ago if we knew who was the furthest affield member on the Earlyworks site.  Well, I don't know about there you've got to be the one furthest from Hastings, UK on this one!
Not only a fellow Irvine, but also a fellow Dragon-  even better!  I am known as IceDragon64 on most of my internet haunts:

Do your Irvine forebears come from Shetland?  If so contact me, we could try countin' kin.
