    You did your best rdytdy. The problem was you kept cutting and pasting articles from Muriel Newman and Mike Hosking. Yesterday's people with yesterday's views, who have been shown to be entirely out of touch with New Zealand.

    Kelly Myers posted this update online:
    "For everyone asking about Rosie..
    She is not conscious yet but moving around a bit more. Once she can follow a simple command such as squeeze a hand and let go they can hopefully take tubes out and she will have surgery on her face.
    Is very much a waiting game and we will keep you updated on any progress.
    All your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated. We all know that what Rosie lacks in size she makes up for in determination 💪 she got this💓xx"

    Berri, while you might find the rantings of those who frequent discussion boards, such as this one, worth following I prefer to take note of official party policy. This from their Animal Welfare Policy.. 
    F. Animals in Entertainment
    Animals must not suffer to provide entertainment for people. The Green Party will:
    1.26 Support a ban on the use of animals in rodeo events as these events rely on inflicting pain and distress to animals to get them to perform.
    1.27 Require all racing codes that use animals to make publicly available the numbers of animals bred, raced, injured, euthanised and re-homed or retired from racing through birth to death reporting.
    nothing too major there and I think we all would agree that official reporting of figures around rehoming, etc is preferable to those wildly inflated figures we see from some of the so-called animal welfare groups. And its an official policy, not one made up on the hustings as we are seeing from one particular party leader who you seem to think would be best person to assist racing.
    and lets not let the truth hit you in the face - the original bill was the result of Winston letting loose his officials in the DIA. It was in fact the National & Green members of the select committee who pulled it into shape after the reading and hearing the submissions. The NZ First member, who lead the committee, was as useful as tits on a bull.

    While we put the All Blacks and league players as tough/hard or whatever we must acknowledge just how jockeys probably beat the lot for courage putting themselves at risk day after day,week after week,I personally reckon a lot want gold medals for their efforts that in many cases aren't acknowledge by the general population.

    So much for this guy's "facts" - more like "alternative facts". The UK is now up to a rolling seven-day average of 20 deaths per million and rising.  He says there hasn't been a second wave. Yeah right. There is just so much unsubstantiated stuff in this video where the author says things and then doesn't give any source at all for his spurious claims. Take the virus seriously, don't listen to the conspiracy theorists and anti-science brigade or those protesting in virus-spreading numbers (2,000 at an anti-mask protest in Auckland recently) and saying their "civil liberties" are being infringed. You don't have any civil liberties if you are dead. I know someone who died from this virus and it annoys the hell out of me that there are people trying to undermine the work of health officials and scientists who are doing their best to protect us by spreading such nonsense.

    Some years ago I went to the Melbourne Cricket Ground to see Carlton versus Richmond.  76,000 crowd for a mid season club game!  And the score board showed the placings at Caulfield that day as the football game progressed. I saw that and wondered if Eden Park would ever do the same.  Okay, Randwick placings did not rate a mention, but who cares about those bastards north of Albury.  Those Aussies adore a footy game, a beer and a bet.  And is that MCG one of the world's greatest sporting stadiums?  Great views.  Plenty of bars serving up grog quickly and not at rip off prices.

    Just the most watched sport in NZ and Australia. They get more people to a club game than any Allblack game. Maybe broaden your horizon.

    One I remember from so long ago, back when Uncle Remus had a couple of starts as a two year old and had run  unplaced. Resuming as a three year old the comment in the  form guide  was "   The future looks all black for this fella "   Would take a brave man to write something like that these days.

    Done a bit of digging , Pharr Canal , out of mare called  La Fontaine . La Fontaine (La Fonteine)  is a  County in Louisiana , in that County is a township called New Iberia where in 1872 Henry Newton Pharr was born . You've guessed it Henry Newton Pharr grew up to head the Louisiana -Rio Grande Canal Company . He built a canal near  New Iberia called Pharr Canal where now it's pretty good for fishing by all accounts . Straight up legit name in honour of Mr Pharr .

    I agree,  but when you have people in positions of influence paying silly money at yearling sales they have to justify these actions in some way and the main focus point is stakes. Unfortunately none of them really care about the general health of the industry, they do however care about their own.
    The pie has never really been. the problem as I see it, it's always been the slicing up of the pie that's the issue,of course now the industry wants the small guys knife, fork & napkin to sell to get a temporary bigger pie. The industry will find a sustainable place if participants are willing to accept reality and leaders stop selling them a BS narrative,  that however won't happen and it will continue down the gurgler.

    A different scenario below, but similar in that the national scouting body ran roughshod over the local community of Waiau after the scout hall was earthquake damaged and the scout group went into recess
    “The group had applied for all the funds that will be generated from the property sale and had hoped to at least secure half the proceeds to benefit local youth.
    “We have been battling to retain some of these funds for the youth of our community, but it is Scouting NZ policy that all property proceeds are retained by the national association (as legal owner),” the group says in the latest eCitizen, the town’s local paper.
    “We have consulted with a solicitor who advises, legally, we don’t have too many rights here. It is disheartening that the hard work put in by the community to have the land gifted, build the den and keep it going for all these years, can so easily be lost to the ‘legal’ owner on paper. Scouting NZ told the group it was willing to consider a modest investment of about $10,000 in the community, based on a process of a business case detailing how the money would be used to benefit the youth in the community. We are now putting together our business case to try to receive this reduced payout as we wish to retain some funds for our community.
    “We have worked hard over the past 18 months to come to the best agreement and are disappointed with this outcome, but do not wish to sacrifice it all with a legal stoush we cannot afford”, the group says. “There is no morality. Nothing in it for the community who had worked to build the den from community fundraising,” she says.
    The land was originally gifted by D.C. Macfarlane and J.L. Macfarlane to “The Boy Scout County of Canterbury Trust Board” in 1956. It was subsequently transferred to “The Boy Scouts Association of NZ” in 1964.
