Well, here we are again into another fabulous year – although 2016 was a great year when you think back. Condolences to all who have lost loved ones, keep smiling and all will end happy for you! Aroha mai. Now to some gossy. Yes, I had a wonderful Christmas as a matter of fact, don’t remember much about Christmas Day, but that’s another story. I hope you all had a good Christmas, I bet you all did – children and all. All put on the weight, preparing for winter.

Timua launched her CD recently, but she will tell you about it. It would be nice if you all wrote pānui to include in Te Pānui Rūnaka, it would save me plenty. So as the weather is blowing up a storm outside, I think that will be enough for now.

You have three chances in life.
Choices – you must make a choice
Chances – take a chance
Changes – to change your life
Luv ya all, till next time. KKK.
Oh, cousin Charlie, I’m a year older now
