another update of material so I will announce that when it is done. If
people would rather I printed it for them I can do so and mail it to them
when I am in the financial position to do so. (As some of you may know I
am an unemployed person - who just did financial surgery on his wallet for
a breadmaker, a good buy - and the NZ government is just announcing work
for the benefit, shudder).
