AirNZ running on linux
the flight to work
as commutes go, it’s quite a long one, but quite pretty on a nice day like last Friday when i had a day trip to wellington to my other office
airnz is great.
they have a really funny safety video which they show on short haul flights (you’ll probably need to watch it twice on youtube here) and they give you a bag of sweets (which they call lollies, but there were no sticks to be seen)
and when it’s nearly time to land they give you a boiled sweet. apparently airnz tried to withdraw these complementary sweets but the whole country revolted. so they were reinstated.
you’ve got to love a country which is completely laid back about everything except a free boiled sweets to protect your ears when on a plane.
the avro lancaster
we went to a donkey derby yesterday which included a fly by of a rare avro lancaster
according to the blurb in the program it was “an underpowered and singularly unsuccessful aircraft”. classic british design therefore
bees at church
kezia spotted a swarm of bees when we arrived at church yesterday (we’re usually first in as we need to set the PA up and have our band practice). Anyway, whilst we were practising the girls told the church wardens who made this fantastic blockage
they also tried to stop any more bees joining the swarm, although i’m not sure how many can read )or perhaps they can – that’s what spelling bees are about).
and just in case you are interested, here are the bees.
