If you are going to win the 'Cup,' guys, do it first race tomorrow or 'lawyers' will be the winners!

Sad, but haven't we seen this before? The battle will be 'off the water,' not in a sporting way, but one driven purely by money and power. We  need to bring the race back to the water in order for the regatta to flourish. Those 'teams in waiting,' will make themselves known if Team NZ brings home the bacon. We will run a regatta that the world will want to come to. NZ will embrace the teams and despite the very best efforts of the lawyers behind most American teams, the 'spirit' of the original founders of this prestige event will survive and revive. That simply cannot happen if Oracle wins in the 'courtroom; actually the highest court in the USA---The Supreme Court.
Not only New Zealand will be watching yet another match point race tomorrow; many around the world will take interest and throw up a collective moan if NZ doesn't rise to the occasion. The only redemption for Oracle and its backers will be if their team wins---on the water. At that point New Zealanders will need to accept defeat graciously and GET ON WITH THEIR LIVES!

Skiwi the NZ whale has surfaced prematurely!

I am rather disappointed re my efforts with Skiwi, the Kiwi whale who I had been training for months to make a ‘secret’ appearance in SF Bay just when Team NZ needed him most. His presence was merely to deflect some of the effort Oracle had been putting in recently.
I first met him on a lonely walks with Perdy on a West Auckland beach. He was just beyond the surf line and he was able to communicate with me in a manner that scientists have yet to discover. I shall leave that tale for another time.
I named him Skiwi, as that seemed appropriate. He told me that he often frequented the SF Bay area and he saw it as an annual event. It did not take it long for me to convince him that he too could play a part in bringing the Cup back home to NZ, but it had to be a clandestine affair or the Yanks would find another reason to delay, call off or even claim his presence as a reason for them to win.
All went well and sure enough, Skiwi arrived off the coast of SF, delaying his entry into the Bay until I sent a signal to the GP device he had swallowed before leaving NZ shores. Unfortunately he did the old ‘throw-up’ trick a day or two before arriving and decided to enter the Bay yesterday. I have no way of communicating now.
I suspect that he will cause a bit of havoc today, just at a time when his earlier ‘showing’ may cause the officials to use his possible ‘flaunting’ to call off the race----again! Oh well, I hope that he decides to head back out to sea and follow ‘plan B.’
Now that he has been discovered, he is going to tell a group of Dolphins who he met last year in the Bay to do the work for him. Their presence is a ‘constant’ and should not be reason to call off or delay the races. BUT--- they know what to do, as any clever dolphin does!  Wait and see!

P (Methamphetamine) is an ugly word for misery and destruction of everything you love!

Methamphetamine featured on 'Sunday' (A TV programme on NZ TV) tonight. I know from Facebook comments that it 'reached many people. The absolute destruction of people's lives and the affect that this insidious scourge has was only too apparent from the programme. No sector of society, rich or poor, educated or not; 'P' takes hold of lives and weaves a deadly spell. Somehow it connects in a manner that leaves the victim almost powerless. Those who push the 'substance' are equally victims; numbed morally and uncaring for their 'customers.' To see a family torn apart' a mother losing her children and ultimately killed by the ramifications of her usage, must have resonated with many of the Kiwis who watched the programme tonight.
In my own way, I have tried to portray the affects of 'P' on a family, in my book, ROSKILL.
