I was going to send this message to a number of you privately since it really has nothing directly to do with AWADTalk, but when I realised the number I'd have to PM, I decided to risk the Wrath of AnnaS and do it here.

Sandra and I have sold the house, handed in our notices and are making plans for our move to the UK. Some of you will know that this includes an intended extended tour across the US. We will endeavour to visit as many of those of you who have made the mistake of thinking that meeting me/us will somehow enhance your lives as we can.

We will probably cross the water to the US in mid-June. I'll post a fuller itinerary to Max's i-Drive when we know what we're doing. There's gotta be a first time for everything.

Thank your for your anticipated forbearance for the abuse of this forum!

Well, CK, may I offer you warm greetings from the old country, and hope that you will settle happily among us, when you finally arrive. Let it be said straight away that any help that I can offer you, is yours for the asking.
I'm looking forward to welcomming you at some point.

Just don't get subverted by the sirens of Yankeeland before you've tried the delights of Olde Englande!

Ma Atua koutou e manaaki, e tiaki, i nga wa katoa.

Thanks Max, I appreciate the sentiment even if I couldn't fully understand the verse. As for your comments on the aptness of my handle, Capital will apply regardless. Provided that you are prepared to swallow one of its other definitions, to wit, "excellent".

And you should remember that whata ngarongaro he tangata, toitu he Aotearoa.

Happy packing, CK and SWMBO. I await with great anticipation the posting of your itinerary and your periodic (and profuse, I hope) updates on your adventures. I know that your itinerary will include a swing through lower Michigan, won't it?!?!?!

We're keeping the actual route top secret so that the forces of darkness won't be able to anticipate our every move*, but I don't doubt that southern Michigan will be in there somewhere**



* We haven't planned our actual route yet

** It's between LA and Chicago following "66" as was ...

Seeing that proverb inverted from its regular order suggests one of two things: (a) You're standing on your head to acclimatise to life at the bottom of the world or (3), it was a subtle clue that anastrophe figures on your route.

Blame P.M. Ryan, not me. I rather liked it the first time I saw it. Should toitu he Aotearoa come before ngarongaro he tangata? e.g. NZ remains although people disappear? Bloody typical! Although what of, I'm not sure.
