People rarely use multi-quote here! Place goes too fast a lot of the time. Probably part of why I have such a high post count too.

So my poor uncle is working himself into the ground as he can't find anybody else good enough to assist him! He's pretty much the only person in the upper half of the South Island able to bake certain breads and such. And damnit, now I'm feeling hungry too! Wish I had some nice bread ... all I've got is sliced white bread.

Plus, I find responding to each post gets your point out there quicker and furthers discussion while you respond to other posts. And if you're like me and like making a lot of points, that's a damn good thing.

Really? I'm sure there must be some people out there who know how to bake! On the bright side, it means that your uncle is a really good baker and a chef at that Freshly baked bread...

Also, holy shit guys. I passed 20,000 Superthread posts in the last thread. 20,023 as of the end of Rooty Hill Holiday Inn.

Will have to go back and see what #20,000 was.

I'm sure you could find some in the bigger cities, like Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, but outside there, it seems harder. He's in Nelson, which has a population of about 40,000-50,000. Most of the bakeries around there just do basic stuff, pies and sausage rolls and apple buns and what-have-you, and he's the only one able to do various fancy European breads and things with names I can't remember or spell. Every time I'm in Nelson, I stock up on food from him. It helps that he's the other U2 fanatic of the family too. He has THIRTY copies of the One Tree Hill single. Well, 28 now that he's given two to me.

Oh yeah, he's a serious fan, way back to the early eighties too. I'm forever jealous of him since he followed U2 around New Zealand on Lovetown.

It's 1:30am here ... kind of early for me, I tend to disappear around 2-3. We'll see. Have a good one, nice to see you on the threads!

So you're kind of a night owl then. I just noticed your birthday's 2 days before mine (randomfact, not really important)

Well, I'm really off now... Bye!
