Did You Know – 03/22/2018

As I am in New Zealand at the moment I thought you may like to know things you did not know about New Zealand


1. The longest place name in the world is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, a hill in Hawke’s Bay.

2. No part of the country is more than 128km (79 miles) from the sea.

3. Only 5% of NZ’s population is human the rest are animals.

4. More people die in New Zealand each year playing lawn bowls than scuba diving.


5. New Zealand is similar in size to the UK, but only has a population of about 4 million (compared to 63 million in the UK).

6. Gisborne airport has train tracks running across the middle of the runway. Quite often, trains and planes have to stop until one moves out-of-the-way.

7. NZ has banned all television advertising on Good Friday, Easter Sunday, ANZAC Day, and Christmas Day.

Poem Friday – You Just Don’t Know

 

It was Sunday,  sitting at the hotel, cigar and drink in hand
I said to David how quiet, peaceful, and beautiful this corner of the land
 
First of the month of October, nothing unusual, last day, tomorrow we leave
I could not have imagined the hours ahead, I could never have perceived
 
Played the poker machines had a good win, ‘til 11:30 or there about
Went back to the room and straight to bed as there was an early checkout
 
Little did I realize what was happening not far away
So unaware, asleep then, to wake up to the news, to my dismay
 
A crazy shooter, many injured, so many lives lost
Never to return home, so much pain for loved ones, dreams gone, what a cost.
 
It is a good thing that we don’t know what is ahead, nothing planned
They would not be there, singing, laughing, listening to music of the band
 
58 more Angels in heaven as  life left their bodies as they fell
One, you can be sure, that shooter, he is in Hell
 
We must learn from this… like butterflies spread your wings,  just go with the flow
Anything can happen in a moment to end your life, your dreams,  you just don’t know
