    Don't MoveTo Florida

    Here in NZ we live north of Auckland and temp is similar to Florida. Lots of commercial citrus but also large numbers of homes have trees laden with fruit. You can call a group that sends volunteers to pick the fruit and then hand on to shipping companies will carry it free for distribution to folks in the South Island where its to cold for them to grow Just for size comparison as NZ should be reversed.
  2. Saw a large cat sailing by this morning so looked at Marine Traffic: The vessel is currently at port OPUA, NZ after a voyage of 24 days, 21 hours originating from port PAPEETE, PF. MOUSETRAP (IMO: 9674701) is a Yacht that was built in 2012 (8 years ago) and is sailing under the flag of Cayman Is. It’s carrying capacity is 15 t DWT and her current draught is reported to be 3 meters. Her length overall (LOA) is 33.52 meters and her width is 14.05 meters. Was down at Opua wharf later and word was they are returning Kiwi's

    Social Distancing May Not Be Enough

    Here the whole country is in lock down. Everybody but essential workers in self isolation. All business other than essential such as supermarkets closed. No restaurants, takeaways, pubs,retail etc No schools, sports, sailing etc No travel except things like supermarket but then limits on number of customers in store and must keep 2m apart. Its eerily quite, had to go to the chemist in our small town. only 2 cars, all stores but 2 mini supermarkets closed. But overall it seems to be working: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/new-zealand/ If you go to the daily updates and click source you can see the details of testing and tracking.

    "2019-nCoV"

    I posted this another thread but above photo really tells the story: Here in New Zealand we have around 950 case with fairly detail info on each ie cases local to me: Case 1 (RECOVERED): Male, 20s. Departed Paris on flight EY38 to Abu Dhabi on March 14, then to Sydney on flight EY450 and then to Auckland on VA0141, arriving on March 16 Case 2: Female, 40s. Departed Melbourne on flight JQ217 to Auckland on March 15 Case 3: Female, 50s. Departed UK on flight EK38 to Dubai on March 19. Departed Dubai on flight EK448 for Auckland on March 21 (recovering in Whangarei hospital as of 26/3) Case 4: Male, 60s. Departed Los Angeles on flight NZ1 on March 23 and arrived in Auckland on March 24 Case 5: Female, 20s. Departed Dubai on flight EK448 on March 19 Case 6: Female, 20s. Departed Dubai on flight EK448 and arrived in New Zealand on March 24 Case 7: Female, 60s (probable). Travelled from the United States out of LAX on March 18 and arrived in New Zealand on March 19. Case 8: Female, 40s Case 9: Female, 20s. Departed Canada on flight GB615 on March 23 and arrived in New Zealand on the same date. Case 10: Male, 50s. Departed United States and arrived in New Zealand on March 22. Case 11: Female, 30s. No international travel. Case 12: Female, 40s. Case 13: Male, 50s. People are supposed to self isolate for 14 days on arrival, but some don't. They go out and don't social distance From other parts in NZ there are 10 significant clusters. In Auckland, around Marist school there are 60 associated cases, in Bluff, around a wedding, 55 cases, and in Matamata 54 cases. (a pub on st paddy's night) Really brings home the possible spread.

    A rant about flying

    Here is a solution: from the NZ Herald today Sir Bob - who famously belted a TV journalist who interrupted him fishing - was unceremoniously ejected from an Air New Zealand flight in May before it left Auckland for Wellington for refusing to follow crew instructions. The incident unfolded after Sir Bob, who was seated in an exit row, refused to say "yes" when asked if he could open the exit in an emergency, a witness told NZME. News Service. In his column, the former rich lister said he had travelled for more than half a century all over the world, "but no airline, not even in the worst Soviet Union days, matches the infantile nappy-statism of an Auckland-Wellington Air New Zealand flight"."The incessant and unnecessary hostess babble over the intercom, the utterly childish and pointless screeching safety video, the absurd seat-by-seat check that we're an inch or two upright at exactly 20 minutes before landing, and worst of all, the 'this is your captain speaking'." He said his long ordered twin-engine Cessna Citation Mustang jet - believed to be valued between $2 million and $2.5 million - finally arrived from abroad last week. "Oh glory; my self-respect finally regained. No unnecessary 20 minute x-rays queues, no holding pens and more queues to board, no sitting around for five minutes after landing before the doors are opened, nor long baggage waits amidst the sun-glasses topped cell-phone bawlers." Instead, he drove to the Wellington hangar, threw his bags on board and flew away. The return was equally satisfying. "We landed and taxied straight into our hangar where my car awaited. Two horrific hours saved." And he had this advice for Air New Zealand management, whose mindset was "still in the 1970s". "Auckland-Wellington is simply a commuter flight. There's no need of the palaver, the x-ray queues, the intercom earbashing, the tea and coffee and so on. Just have one uniformed hefty bloke to deal with improbable events and leave the passengers alone."
