Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and equivalent holidays to everyone. I'm on the Gold Coast doing the family thing at the moment, and it's all rather nice. I even managed to do a quick scuba dive on Christmas Eve in Byron, and catch up with good friends who were back on the coast this week. Tomorrow I fly to New Zealand for a short family holiday around the South Island, visiting Christchurch, Nelson, Queenstown, Wanaka and Tekapo, as well as many other places along the way. I would guess mountains, valleys and sheep will be in evidence. I'm not taking the laptop, so I'm going to be out of email range until about the 7th of January, so don't expect a reply from any of my email addresses. I assume mobiles work in NZ, so you can reach me that way if you really want to, although I may have to shout to be heard over the incessant bleating in the background. See you in 2007!
