    I see another trotter off across the Tasman, just wondering if he is joining Mingara stable ? According to the commentators last night, the connections got a reasonable price for him !! Best of luck to the connections Cheers Archie
  2. Tony, if you do read this , all the best in the new venture and sorry to see you go from the training ranks.You trained a few for us over the years and sorry it eventually did not work out in the long term.Make the most of the new venture and the best of luck. Alan(Archie) Dawson (Perigo !!)

    I see Mingara now racing in Australia and had a good win last Saturday night at Menangle, winning by over 6 metres and also went out favourite.Now trained by Nicole Molander ex Jason and Megan Teaz here in New Zealand.Naturally racing over there as MingaraNZ and owners and breeders still the same, Barbara and Graham Wisnewski (ex Pukekohe).All the best to them for the racing over there. Cheers Archie
  7. Lloyd, I see she has been turned out for a spell for a few days !! Cheers Archie
  8. Must have learnt it all when he was a Gunner(Private) in 161 Battery at Papakura ? Cheers Archie
  9. I claimed years back they would never end , ever since David Lange opened "pandoras box" with the Treaty of Waitangi act, and cannot see them ending as long as gutless governments keep giving into the claims each time, funny how votes required sways decisions does it not? Cheers Archie

    I see the great Race Relations concilliator is very conspicious by his SILENCE !! I wonder why?,perhaps the wrong coloured skin involved!! Cheers Archie
  11. Barry, I did that with Helen Clark when they introduced the "fart tax" years back.Wrote her a letter saying I had farted so many times that week and at 69cents per fart included a cheque for the amount calculated, exluding gst of course. Received a letter back acknowledging my contribution and a week or two later received my orginal cheque back in the mail.I had made it out to her by name so they could not pass it on to something else. Still have the cheque around somewhere, kept it just for laughs !! Cheers and have a good day Archie
  12. AA is not the AA of old when it was Auckland,Wellington etc. Its now AA New Zealand and a commerical enterprise and in it for the profit so will link into any organisation where they think they can make a profit from things,Bp and whoever. Found that out when I queried a few things myself. Cheers Archie
  13. Any bets on how long it before its applied in New Zealand Lloyd? Cheers Archie
  14. You can have Vatuvei for half the price !! Cheers Archie

    And how many of the senior players should be doing the same thing !! They have not got the guts to also accept responsibility for not performing,the coach can only do so much, he is not on the field playing the game. Cheers Archie
