  • falling in the ditch and getting all dirty kinda sounds like fun! lol
    we try to avoid falling in ditches unless it is deliberate and then it is definitely way too much fun. and all our parrots around here are native, rare and endangered so there will be no eating them lol i did take the kids to see the kakapo when he came to the ecosanctuary and he was hell cool. a big green nocturnal flightless parrot. he thinks he is a person as they hand raised him before they worked out kakapo imprint on humans. i think he even shagged some pommie tv person who was out doing a program about him LOL

    • The kakapo is so beautiful in an awkward kind of way. I've never seen one before.

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      • they are very rare. they didnt used to be but being flightless and tasting nice, they were toast. their feathers smell so nice too. they passed a bag around for us to smell when we went to see him. they had counted them tho lol being a weaver, getting my hands on some kakapo feathers would be incredibly exciting.

        • Just googled them as I'd never heard of them before, we dont get many parrots in these climes, except for pets, big buggers aren't they, looks a bit like a giant budgie!

          • LOL it was more shaped like a meat chicken. we dont get too many parrots and all ours are relatively rare or very rare. we were down to about 50 odd kakapo in the early 90s but i think we're up to over 100 now.

            • Ah, yeah, can see it in the wings now, they must be tasty then!! (Not that I plan to find out)

              Only doubled in 20 years or so though, are they bred in captivity or are people, or some people actually showing some compassion for an endagered species?

              • they are incredibly slow breeding i think. they keep them on offshore pest free islands as they arent the smartest when it comes to things like mustelids and feral cats and the like. they smell sweet and apparently taste very good too.

                • Can't imagine um outrunning most hunters?!

                  Some urban areas round here could do with some slow breeders!!

                  • LOL england is vastly overpopulated. i think i would feel like crocodile dundee in new york if i went to london for a visit. auckland was bad enough last time i went there and i used to live there!

                    • You ain't wrong, and it's getting worse!

                      Can't say I'm that big on London, too big for my liking, I live in a city, but can be out in the country in a matter of minutes.

                      • well there are 4 houses on my road including mine and i cant see any of them. there's no one at the end of my road for prob a k one way and 3 ks the other way. no street lights and dirt roads. i liked london but i was younger then and liked to party lots.

                        • A tad remote then, don't think you'ld like my terraced house much?!

                          Thing is, due to the aforementioned overcrowding over hear, bullion's cheaper than property, so to be able to move to the country I'd probably have to quadruple me wages to afford the garage!

                          One good thing is I can walk to all the local Veg/Vietnamese/Indian/Chinese/health food shops in about 20 minutes, not to mention me local butcher! And there's a farmers market about a 15 minute drive away!

                          • all the foreigners have stuffed our housing prices too which means we have to save up to move to the country unless we already live there, or have a paid off house in the city. terraced houses would wierd me out totally. i did know a south african woman who moved to england and she reckoned it freaked her out having the letterbox in your front door. i can walk to the beach and get cockles, mussels and oysters. i have to dice with death and get in the water to get paua and kina. there is crayfish not too far out there too but you need a boat i think. i can also spear for flounder and net for mullet within walking distance and fish off the rocks or spear fish where we get paua for things like moki and greenbone and maybe some blue cod. not to mention, at this time of year, get the pump action out and shot ducks, black swans and geese in the backyard. which ftr, i am not doing as i like ducks, the geese are not the tasty type and the kids wont let me shoot any swans.

                            • i implemented my brain wave this morning. instead of sulking coz i cant run properly and it hurts my ankle. i went for a brisk walk the other way up a nasty 200 odd metre hill. down the other side about 400m. back up the 400m hill and back down the 200m hill. which is way harder than jogging a mile on the flat.
