    The wife and I listen to Radio Dunedin over the internet everyday. She has the bug to move to Dunedin in a very bad way!

    Those that refer to themselves as Americans or 'Mercans, are the ones who give the rest of us a bad name, unfortunately. If asked my nationality, I respond that I am a U.S. Citizen. If you ask me where I'm from......I was born Alaskan and I will die Alaskan! Unless NZ eventually lets me in.

    Side note-There are 23 countries on the Continent of North America and 12 Countries in South America. For some reason it really bothers me that only 1 of those countries refers to themselves as America. I think that's the part of the arrogance some of those from the USA exude. Trust me, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth too! We get ship loads of those 'Mercans up here all summer!

    But we are not all bad, I'd say most of the inmates get it!

    There are only three of them so you could just phone them up tomorrow and ask. Direct approach is always best. I predict the answer will probably be "come and see us when you get here"

    By the way if you put "motorcycle" in the trademe search above there are three jobs, postie and 2 x uber eats delivery. Plenty of jobs in construction...

    Did you not see the word ‘unfortunately’ in my post? I am personally not happy about this anti American attitude.
