    Getting Lost in Kiwiland...

    I'd personally pass on Otago, as that is a BIG TIME collage town, they are called scaffies, and they totally own Otago. Although the cost of living there is very low. North Island has just as much outdoors stuff as the south, just on a different scale (ie; weekend hiking where as in the...

    Can you change Fate?

    I believe in fate..I dont think every min is planed, but i believe we are meant to learn certain things, have certain experiences. Often people have 'themes' following them around because they are just not getting the message. The same message will keep coming along, it may just be wearing...

    At what point do you quit and accept defeat?

    He does not need to 'give up' his dream, but maybe he needs to look at going about it a different way. There is no shame in admitting ones current course is not working out and adjusting it to work in the here and now, but continuing to look down the road and working towards that goal! Its...

    I have not heard starter marriages referred to in that way before, I thought it was a reference to the fact most married people now days are on the second or third marriage, Meaning that younger people are not taking marriage as seriously as the older generation in this 'have an argument get a...

    Having a tough time with getting hit. Advice?

    I would imagine the weight loss would effect in several ways, firstly you obviously dont have as much padding, and there would be a period of time to get use to your new frame, realize that you may get pushed back more that you use. That being said I agree with everyone else about not...

    Dog training-obedience, agility anyone do it?

    I do actually agree with you to some point, and with domesticated animals it is usually a mix of both view points. ie; the family unit is still similar to a pack but of course has some different dynamics as well.

    Dog training-obedience, agility anyone do it?

    The Family unit has replaced the pack but is still the same thing, there are still positions in the unit a pecking order. Everyone of course is entitled to there own beliefs, and mine is that you can take the dog out of the pack but you cant take the pack out of the dog, even after hundreds of...

    I guess you wouldn’t fit into the stereotypical 'norm' and that’s just fine, there is also nothing wrong with being emtionional, I am driven by my emotions and feeling, it’s not a weakness, it makes me and extremely loving caring person. What I was saying earlier about...

    Explain to the dumb Canadian...can everyone carry a concealed weapon in America?

    How would this retailer know the above if the person does not disclose them? Does America have some kind of database of people in treatment?

    very important info-

    Good on you Geo, I applaud your efforts as a parent. Too many kids grow up these days with parents that do not take an active interest in what they are getting up to all day long. This will let your daughter know that you care about her well being and that she is important enough to you that...

    I agree, but what you may not take into account is the emotional ups and downs us ladies tend to have. I consider myself an open honest person, but it is sometimes hard to verbalise exactly what it is we want, because sometimes we just may not be sure. I remember telling my boyfriend that...

    What have you learned from a white belt lately?

    From a slightly different angle, I have remembered what it is like to be a white belt after looking at new arts recently...the excitement, nerves, anticipation, feeling clumsy and awkward, the rush of learning something new and going home to show someone.....

    It has never been said that it is not ok that men wants to fix things, that is your natural reaction when someone comes to you with a problem. The difference is that a lot of the time woman just want to vent, to talk through a problem so as to solve it them selves, when a man lets a woman talk...
