And really you can’t go past that winning smile.
The following posts are the result of a fascinating few hours, today, which resulted from a perfectly innocent enquiry of Monsignor David Bennett at St Peter’s first thing this morning. ‘When is the mass for the World Youth Day pilgrims being held?’ As I am recording happenings in and about Cambridge with some enthusiasm atContinue reading “Friday in Cambridge”
So much for on the spot blogging. And I get breath tested twice – coming and going. Thursday night and there are police cars everywhere.
I find the branding of Waipa problematical as it subverts the identity of our town. More so when that branding appropriates iconography clearly identifiable as Cambridge. Our Chamber of Commerce refers to Cambridge as a township. My current favourite is little big town which came, I think, from the visitor people. Confusion reigns. Whether weContinue reading “What is Cambridge township?”

Proud under her strenuous 24/7 365 workload our lovely 100 year old ‘high level bridge’ – the Victoria Bridge – at 8:15AM this morning, Tuesday the 8th of July 2008, coated in frost and cloaked with Waikato River mist. At both ends bridge guardians, men in Hi Viz, responsible for the day-to-day care and safe use of our toanga stand in the cold air and watch.
Word about is that there are serous moves afoot to set up in competition to Fairfax‘s Cambridge Edition. There is some agreement around town that, in recent months, ‘The Edition’ has lost it. Too much soft news, much of it provided, and not enough of the real stuff a community needs to know about itself.Continue reading “Cambridge newspapers”
10:00AM Rotunda, Leamington Domain, Wordsworth Street, Leamington. Cool and sunny. 02:53PM Rotunda, Cambridge Domain, Thornton Road, Cambridge. Cold and wet.
The sodium lighting of SH1 Victoria Street, Cambridge, New Zealand casts the shadow of the lytchgate porch gable at the south eastern entrance to St Andrew’s Anglican Church this evening.
Today was all about trucks and I went to the SH1 Queen Street, Victoria Street intersection looking for a convoy. I was a bit on the late side. There were plenty of trucks of all shapes and sizes but all seemed to be gainfully employed.
The My Boss Has Asked Me To Call You telephone campaign is cold calling with all the personality of a recorded message.
A moment of shared joy, at 2:45PM this afternoon, Thursday the 3rd of July 2008, as heavy rain sends water cascading from the shop varandahs in Cambridge’s Victoria Street. (For those unfamiliar with New Zealand shops, most have varandahs which extend over the entire pavement or side walk). Note: I may not have mentioned theContinue reading “Afternoon downpour”
I am pretty sure the modem (D-Link DSL-502T) is faulty. I ring Telecom 126 and am ushered into a call centre experience superior in tone, and helpfulness, to recent excruciating disasters. The auto voice drafting (with push button responses) is simple and to the point.
A railway line lay here between 1884 and 1999. The Cambridge branch line joined the network at Ruakura and terminated at Lake Street beside Lake Te Koutu. Passing through Matangi, Bruntwood and Hautapu it offered passenger services until 1946. The line terminates at Fonterra Hautapu now – a freight only service. The truck to the left travels the last few metres of SH1B which leaves SH1 at Taupiri and links back into SH1 at the St Andrew’s Church corner just over my left shoulder. The coming of the Waikato Expressway, the demise of this railway line – things to ponder as the price of oil rises and today, Tuesday the 1st of July 2008, many celebrate the return to public ownership of ‘KiwiRail’ after a decade and a half in private ownership.
