Last Friday, the 26th of June 2009, Zenfolio the image storage facility I use was upgraded to include an embed slideshow function. Great, it works really well – but as this site is hosted by WordPress.com I can’t just pop the code straight into a post. So for those who wish to know such things it goes Zenfolio > VopPod > WordPress. If you want to know more – it is fairly straight forward – email me – michael AT michaeljeans.co.nz and I will explain further. Or you could read this. This slideshow is of images from this blog dating back from June 2008 – posts which are gradually being recovered and republished as time allows.

The database which contains most of my on-line image files is currently undergoing an upgrade. This means that my blog which sources most of it’s images from said database will look rather blank for the next 3-4 hours. Apologies for the inconvenience. We will see you back tomorrow. 1900 hours NZST 26/06/2009 All good 0800Continue reading “Gallery update 26/06/2009”

The line up of allotments down the road from our London hosts near High Barnet used to look very tatty and unloved when I first looked at them 18 years ago. Not so today. Now they are high producing areas much loved and tended by their leasees, in this case mostly Italian. It is a sign of the times, alas, that they are also surrounded by high security fencing.
My name is Michael Jeans. I am a native of Cambridge. Cambridge born and bred I grew up at Whitehall – educated at Whitehall Primary and Cambridge High. I have been Cambridge based for much of my life and a photographer for most of my working career.
Typical of photography services in smaller centres I offer the full range of what we refer to these days as imaging services. Wedding and portrait photography – the very popular and important skills of photo restoration, archiving and storage – photography for business, real estate and insurance. The whole bit. Visual branding and promotion.
I am very very partial to my home town uniquely hugging the Waikato River – its twinness – Cambridge and Leamington – its place as a Waikato agribusiness centre for dairying – as much as an equine centre.
Playing my part in promoting our place I maintain an on line diary or journal – there’s a year’s worth on line at the moment – a visual blog which in part celebrates and promotes the authentic Cambridge I know and love.
I am always on the look out for new and interesting stuff about our place – as I always say – quirky but effective – providing a window on our place for us and the rest of the world to enjoy. I look forward to working with you.

the word ‘kingasini’ brought memories flooding back (oh that I could still play it!). I played it in the late 40’s to 50’s and my kids played Bullrush. I think there might have been a slight variation between the two but for the life of me I can’t think what it is! I wonder what they call it these days, must ask my grandkids.

Dad (at Whitehall in the 1930s) asks me about the word kingasini. Yes, we played bullrush or kingasini in the 1950s and 1960s – at Whitehall (I recall we used the two names interchangeably – or were there two variations each having their own name – a vague memory is saying yes).

Cambridge Community Constable Senior Constable Neil Warren, spoke this evening, about his work in our community. Wide ranging remarks from a committed and passionate police officer. The most serious drug problem faced by our communities – alcohol abuse. He spoke also of the under-the-radar dangers of text bullying with the ubiquitousness of texting in the lives of young folk.
Earthrace [and here] visits Cambridge at Dominion Avenue Cambridge NZ today, Tuesday, the 9th of June 2009. Moored on the Waikato River, below Duke Street hill and the curve of SH1 where the Karapiro Stream joins the Waikato and just below the furthest point on the river navigable from the sea – the boat is receiving local visitors during the day.

The Maungatautari Mission. This annual multi sport race begins in here Leamington cycles to Tari Road Pukeatua traverses Maungatautari on foot to Maungatautari School cycles again to Hora hora and kayaks to principal race sponsors Boatshed Café and Kayaks at Karapiro.
We have had a series of frosts this week. Today was cold and rather miserable – a black frost (a frost with morning cloud cover) – I am not sure if the daytime temperature rose much above 8-9 degrees C today which is a rarity around here even during winter – we are usually slightly milder than this. A related observation, across the river, is made on Velofille’s photostream. And Phil. There is a change coming though – as always.

In September of next year, on the 24 – 26th of September 2010 to be exact, the 125th Jubilee celebration of education at Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools is to be held. There is a website where you can find out more and perhaps get involved in the planning yourself. http://125kthw.wordpress.com/
The Jubilee website.
Twenty-Five or so years ago when my Mum – Phyllis Jeans – gathered the material for Centenary 100 Years of Education in the Taotaoroa Whitehall Karapiro Districts. 1885 – 1985 [ISBN 0-473-00307-4] the manuscript was typed (by Lesley Sewell) and set again for the printing presses at Cambridge Independent. We on the other hand have access to all the current digital tools enabling us to share and edit documents from home – view them online at meetings and share much more readily and rapidly to a greater audience the fruits of our research and planning. Above the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa and Karapiro Hydro Schools’ 125th Jubilee committee meets at Karapiro School this Thursday evening the 4th of June 2009. The 125th Jubilee is being held in September 2010.
Get it by emailing your subscription request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Lots of good stuff.
