Yeah, I've seen pictures of the new stations and they look a lot nicer, albeit rather insubstantial. A lot of the old station buildings looked so far past their prime and dilapidated that, even though they have heritage significance, they should probably just be knocked down. The graffiti and vandalism made the whole railway corridor seem rather unsafe. I can see why, in the nineties, nobody was taking the train in Auckland.

I think you would've been better off on the train! That was just after they introduced the Overland, when it was in its prime rather than being the somewhat run-down train hanging in there for dear life as it is right now. I'd still take it over the bus, but I wouldn't be happy about either option.

Yeah? What's the real end-to-end travel time for flying at the moment? If I remember correctly, the flight isn't even an hour, but how much has arsing around with check-in and security added to things?

This Year's Model is everyone's favorite. It's fine, but My Aim Is True is much more fun and less streamlined. Plus, it's his debut, so you may as well start there.

I'll do that. He's one of those people I always meant to listen to more of, but just never had the chance

I think you'll really love him. There are a number of fans here, and I'm more of a distant admirer myself.

Don't worry, all is right with the world: I'm not interested in his music.

Can I make you feel bad?

That was the song my hubby dedicated to his Dad at his funeral 3yrs ago. He died at 59 from Leukaemia. I can't listen to it without getting a lump in my throat and my eyes filling up

Thanks now I do feel bad. No the song makes me sad too, but the fact that Brittany is all choked up is what made me laugh.
