Don't worry about the world coming to an end today ... it's already tomorrow in New Zealand!
Trust me ... They'll let me know and I'll tell you ASAP. Admittedly, I'm starting to wonder!

One wonders when the New Zealand media will start questioning the NZ government about their botched COVID vaccination rollout scheme.

Answer: TV3 News did so on 4 June 2021. It's a boondoggle ... suspicions confirmed.

They tell us we don't have Covid in the community so don't worry.
Meanwhile, all of us wait for the other shoe to drop.

Understand this, with all of the problems of the vaccine rollout, there is no place better 'in the world' than New Zealand in which to be locked down.

I was hinting to Mrs Wilderness what I wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
I said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 200 in about 3 seconds."
She bought me a bathroom scale.


I have the right 'NOT' to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

Right here seems like a good place to remind some people:
When you're dead, you don't know you're dead. The pain is only felt by others.
The same thing happens when you're stupid.

All Too True
... Some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs. So as you go about your daily life, just be ready. Because you're going to be asked not just to tolerate things that violate your faith; you're going to be asked to endorse them. You're going to be asked to bow down to the idols of the popular culture.

Need Proof?
Rugby Australia sacked Israel Folau, the land's most popular star, after he included homosexuality in a social-media post on sin, hell and the Bible.

That social media post, which Folau has refused to take down, quoted the fifth chapter of St. Paul's epistle to the Galatians:

"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

A quote from former Wallabies coach Alan Jones, aimed at national rugby leaders: "They've destroyed his employment and internationally destroyed his name for quoting a passage from the bible for God's sake."

So quoting the bible is now Hate Speech. Saying what you believe to be true is apparently not covered by Freedom of Speech ... if it is a Christian belief.
Updated!Update on this story:
Former Wallabies star Israel Folau reportedly received a staggering A$8 million settlement from Rugby Australia.
The Daily Telegraph reports the payout is believed to be $8 million. The Australian reports it was "several million dollars". Rugby Australia CEO Raelene Castle described the reports as "wildly inaccurate."

Rugby Australia and Folau issued a joint statement on Wednesday after reaching a confidential settlement, with both parties apologizing for their actions.
Does it matter? He had to suffer hell and take them to court.

AN OLDIE BUT GOODIE FROM THE FRONT PORCH
BANANA ATTACKS GORILLA THEN SPLITS!
I'm just going to report this the way I found it.
By Melissa Reid Fox 8 News Reporter
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - There is a banana at large in Strongsville.

Police say that someone dressed up as a banana and attacked the Wireless Center's mascot, a gorilla, last week.
"I noticed a kid in the bushes. Then he just emerged, dressed up as a banana, and sprinted as fast as he could at our gorilla," said Brandon Parham, the manager. "The kid just speared our gorilla."

Parham and another employee witnessed the attack. "The kid was in mid-air, flying. He just looked like a Spartan from that movie '300,' except he was a banana," added Parham.

The Wireless Center uses the gorilla as an advertising tool on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.

"After he got tackled, the gorilla just got back up and adjusted his head. He kept on waving his sign around," said Parham.

Police say the person, dressed up as a banana, split and headed south on Pearl Road.
According to Parham, the person who was wearing the gorilla costume will recover.

"This is just bizarre. It's really not normal of the food chain. That's not really how this works. The gorilla should have won," said Parham.

Police were unable to locate the banana. They believe it was a prank.

Samuel Adams:

"It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush-fires of freedom in the minds of men."

"Fathom the odd hypocrisy that the government wants every citizen to prove that they are insured, but people don't have to prove they are citizens."

Gas or Petrol
'Petrol' is used in most of the Commonwealth Countries while the term 'Gasoline is basically used in North American Countries. Etymology of petrol is also quite interesting. The word 'gasolene' first came into existence in 1865 which was modified to the modern spelling 'gasoline' in 1871. Initially any other fuel other than diesel or liquefied gas which could be used in engines was termed as gasoline. The word 'petrol' came into existence in early 1892. Carless-Capel & Leonard, a German wholesaler, was the first company to register 'petrol' as a trade name.

I've read your story about your mother 'Goodbye Mom' (and selling your sailboat to make the last trip to see her) before, and I love it. Glad you included it for Mother's Day. Especially pleased to see you credit our loving heavenly father, God, for providing you the impetus to make the trip.
In Christ's love,
