WIiiiiNDY + COooooLD.

The main thing about Welly is the fact that the weather is [email protected] all year round.

Radio Stations.

On the way 2 school the other morning. Kids (6yrs old and under) in the car, radio on. DJ's discuss religion, proceed 2 diss judaism, then discuss why some men aren't always "up for" sex, then play a song containing the (repeated) lyrics, "don't let the bastards get you down", uncensored.

In what civilised country would any of that be remotely acceptable??

Just back to Welly the day before yesterday. the weather is not so nice here but I do feel this place seems just simply better (quality??) than auckland. Mainly ppl I would say.

Have you actually read any other posts I have put on here?

I like to think everyone has the right to comment on observations about things they see around them, don't you?

I'll let you off, you are new to the forum

I>M>E the weather is nowhere near as bad as Crapcoffee makes out. The last 10 days in Winter have been little wind, blue skies and sunshine. It has very high sunshine hours even by NZ standards.
