  3. Rugby League / Union 2013 onwards

    That's one way to win. Little jump into the air as the tackle comes in to win the penalty. .....not happy. Mr Grumpy today!

    Yup ...Sonny Bill is off....and deserves to be....plonker!

  7. Some interesting isolated hefty showers traveling up from the south west. Currently over Cotswolds/Gloucester. Also some over Dorset. Will anything come of these?
  8. New Zealand Weather

    Bay of Plenty area looking wet and windy overnight thanks to Cyclone Cook. A state of emergency is in place in Bay of Plenty and the Thames-Coromandel District. http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/328715/live-cyclone-cook-bears-down-on-nz http://blog.metservice.com/CyloneCookUpdate13April
  9. Incredible photos ...damn hard to photograph glowworms in the pitch darkness!! I was down the caves in Waitomo in December (lots of different caves in the area)......but my photos bear very little resemblance to the stunning photography here!
  10. Sidney had better not be counting his chickens, or mallards for that matter.....plenty of time for that special snowy surprise yet;
  11. Snowing here for the last 20 minutes in north Hampshire. Starting to lay on parked cars.
  12. New Zealand Weather

    Very pleasant weather at the moment here close to Whangarei Heads. A bit of rain tomorrow might encourage me to focus on some Christmas shopping! The run up into Christmas looks to be largely fine with temps around 24c, but uncertainty re cloud cover. Hoping for a sunny Christmas Day for the BBQ and to appreciate the stunning views from the house we're renting. Anyway, the sun is shining now so best make the most of it for the next 10 days or so before our return to the gloomy Brit winter. "Will it snow at Heathrow on 31 Dec?!"
  13. England Football Team

    The only ex England Manager to boast a 100% record!
  14. Earthquake Activity Thread

    7.1 quake, depth 19 miles.....just off the NE coast of New Zealand's North Island. Nearest towns are Gisborne, Whakatane and Tauranga/Mt Maunganui (kiwi sis lives here). No major damage reported in these cities and luckily the region closest to the epicentre is sparsely populated. Civil Defence have issued a Tsunami warning for the Bay of Plenty area "The Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management (MCDEM) has issued a tsunami warning for East Coast of the North Island (including Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty) and Upper South Island.Confirmation has been received that a tsunami was generated at East Cape. A wave height measuring 30cm was measured at East Cape a short time ago.The first tsunami activity has arrived. Tsunami activity will continue for several hours and the threat must be regarded as real until this warning is cancelled.People in the above/ coastal areas should:1. Stay out of the water (sea, rivers and estuaries, including boating activities) 2. Stay off beaches and shore areas 3. Do not go sightseeing 4. Share this information with family, neighbours and friends 5. Listen to the radio and/or TV for updates 6. Follow instructions of local civil defence authorities"
