      ‘Tis true – it is indeed ‘Morning’ (At leas in our small part of the world) and, wonder of wonders , there’s NO rain !!!

      Should NIWA be advised?

      Despite that ‘inconvenience’ (The lack of rain) I hope that you (and indeed all our fellow YSBer’s) have a great day.

      • I’m not a morning person, so I’m rarely around for ticking the first comment in either direction but it amuses me that it gets some folk so wound up if a tick is in the wrong column.
        I wonder – you don’t suppose – just maybe – thats why whoever does it does it at all?
        And I wonder if an uptick causes as much excitement as a down tick does?
        Heavens the other day someone expressed personal dislike for an anonymous ticker..
        Thank you for making me aware of the richness in my life that makes ticks relatively insignificant.
        Fill ya boots.

  1. The Financial Incentive to Murder and Poison Children.
    There are more deaths from vaccines than from the diseases they are said to prevent. The cause of SIDS has been known for decades. In 2009 NZ ranked 26th out of 34 Nations for vax induced Infant mortality (SIDS).

    • A Kenyan doctor declared last week that the globalist World Health Organization (WHO)’s proposed “Pandemic Accord” treaty aims to pave the way for a new lethal man-made virus and vaccine, as well as establish a global government by undermining national sovereignty.
      Dr. Wahome Ngare explained before the Second African Inter-Parliamentary Conference on Family Values & Sovereignty that the real purpose of the pending treaty, which would achieve unprecedented medical control of the WHO over all of its member nations, is depopulation.

      • I don’t know why there’s all this talk of a “lethal man-made virus and vaccine.” There’s no need to kill the population off since birthrates in the East and West are way below replacement levels.

        If you wanted to be pragmatic (as a farmer of mankind), you would cull out the old, the mentally and physically ill, and the unproductive.

        Besides, if the population falls, who will buy the goods and services produced by the corporations of the world of the “elites”?

        In a true dystopia we would be bred like battery hens and forced to constantly fight in wars against the “other side” like in “1984.”

  2. Parking lots full of Tesla vehicles are becoming impossible to ignore as the electric automaker seemingly can’t sell enough cars and trucks to match its rate of production. According to its own figures, the electric automaker produced 46,561 more vehicles than it delivered to customers during the first quarter of 2024. Where are all these cars going? Parking lots at its factories, malls and airports.
    Recent drone footage from the automaker’s Fremont, California factory shows that cars are still rolling off the assembly lines at a high rate to fill the site’s lots. Things aren’t different on the other side of the Atlantic. Neuhardenberg, a small town in Germany of less than 3,000 residents, is complaining about the noise Tesla transporters are making as the company parks cars at the nearby regional airport.

  3. The flight was coming into Wellington when a combination of mechanical
    errors and unstable weather caused the plane to start
    plummeting to the ground!

    The pilot feverishly worked his controls, and finally, the
    engines roared back to life in time to prevent the plane
    from going splat on the runway!

    As the plane landed, airport officials rushed to the
    disembarking gate and were stunned to see 100 midgets shakily
    get off the plane. Finally the crew got off the aircraft and
    the local manager of the airline came up to congratulate the pilot
    on his perseverance under extreme odds.

    As the official and the pilot were talking, the official
    commented how unusual it was that there were so many midgets on the flight.

    “Those weren’t midgets,” the pilot replied. Those were
    politicians with all the shit scared out of them!”

  4. Warning, this article shows images of some very ugly people, speaks with people with a criminal conviction like the Duke of Montrose and J. Shipley and confuses Welshmen with being a Native although someone, long ago, may have had a Native in them to produce a Welshman who claims to be a Native.

    • “Sir Douglas Graham says getting rid of the Waitangi Tribunal would be absurd”
      I see this fucker is still sticking his oar in.
      “For Sir Douglas, the tribunal must have a role for decades to come.”
      That prick has never cooked a meal in his life – gravy gets cold and thick and gets thrown out after awhile.

    • McBride is a smart operator and Hurring is as well. while it seems a major actually it’s not and these things always have to be managed. Takes a lot of effort and funds to go retail. Its a whole different space.
      I imagine that they have plans that are not said yet.
      After all the Tatua dairy pay and continue to pay more than anyone else.
      They make for brands including their own but don’t retail service.
      The money is in the science which fonterra has plenty in store.

      • Not sure I agree with that Viking. Back in the early 70s the Dairy Board and Nestle were similar sized companies. Obviously Nestle has grown to what it is today, mainly through consumer marketing activities.
        The Irish equivalent to Fonterra (forgotten it’s name. ) got into consumer marketing in a big way and has been very successful)

        • Yes Ross, controlling your product as far as possible always pays dividends if well managed and buffers so much more.

          Should Fonterra basically be a one raw product provider, (Milk Powder) then in a few years time watch China come along and fuck them over – big time. China have a record of doing this, look at the Nickel market in Australia for example. Clive Palmer will tell you all about that and how it worked out for him. I believe this proposed move leaves Fonterra and its Shareholders very vulnerable, but you know, the farmers will take the reputed $300K that is supposed to be in it for them, and then when it turns to shit because China manipulated the market to Chinas benefit, the will complain.

          I used to go to Chile on business a lot in the 1980’s – 1990’s, the NZDB and later Fonterra were very large there in Dairying then and they also had a substantial control of the Fertiliser market in Chile. Much the same for Fonterra in Uruguay. I believe under Mr Hurrells’ leadership, Fonterra have divested themselves of all their interests in these markets. Retrenchment seems to be the game under Hurrell, not growth or expansion.

    • Fonterra dont do anything important
      Their main activity is to collect some milk, boil the water out of it and stick the remaining powder in brown paper bags; for export .

      Simple model for overpaid, simple employees.
      I mean they paid toddy ‘nutbar’ muller ex nat MP $750 k pa to be a ?????
      Nicky Willis was employed there. Not sure if she worked there, though.

      The place is a failure
      No-where has copied this model of all in one, representing all (almost all)
      Australia looked at it and went.. tell im hes dreaming

      The prior model of competitive producer co-ops with the Dairy Board as a marketing arm worked.
      The Dairy Board was more innovative than Fonterra which has had NO Wins in 20 years and many failings.
      Many overseas partnerships have failed
      Andrew Ferrier was probably the only half way decent CEO and he did SFA except internal restructuring.

      It is about selling product.
      None of theirBrands are premium brands,
      Diane Foreman did more with her Emerald Icecream brands than Fonterra ever could.
      Tip Top is as pretty basic product that was already flogged off.
      Kapiti icecream was started by others then purchased by Fonty
      They cant innovate

      Fonterra largely do what the dairy factories did 60 years ago, but they had better marketing !!
      Scathing yes, but it is what it is
      and it aint pretty

      • Does the DRI in PNth still operate? It used to do some great work on processing efficiencies etc. in the 60 &70s and then moved onto some product development. Other than dried colostrum I’m not aware of any major new products coming out of there.

  5. Jumping on the latest band wagon –AI.

    https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/mike-hosking-breakfast/audio/richard-appleby-livestock-visibility-solutions-ceo-on-their-ai-program-flow-which-streamlines-cow-movement/

    What this guy describes for it’s use in dairy farming is not new (it maybe better, I don’t know) I remember reading a few years ago of a guy who was a self confessed geek. He owned a dairy farm just south of Christchurch but also had a house in the Queenstown area. He set himself the task of trying to set up the farm so he could operate it from his Queenstown house and he succeeded. It involved, among other things, having the gates opened remotely, those fancy automatic milking systems etc. etc. I’m sure he still visited the farm routinely but the set up gave himself some more freedom.

  6. This worth reading. The author rips into a column in the ODT by Metiria Turei

    https://breakingviewsnz.blogspot.com/2024/05/gerry-eckhoff-metiria-tureis-column.html#more

    This bit is new to me :

    ” It may well be of interest to Ms Turei that some Maori men were entitled to vote as early as 1853, and all Māori men in 1867. Maori men were entitled to vote as communal landowners, unlike Europeans who needed (at that time ) to hold land as individuals before being eligible to vote. This was 12 years before all men of European heritage were allowed the vote as they were not landowners. “

    • Maori women gained emancipation at the same time as Pakeha women in 1893.

      Some may say that was when the wheels fell off but I’ll leave it to my fellow correspondents to make their own assessments. 🙂

    • haven’t tried to read it
      but this is a language that was only really invented 200 years ago
      mainly by sticky beaked but possibly well meaning religious types

      Instead, have they thought about using Esperanto
      also developed in the 1800s
      There would be more people that could read it 🙂

      Esperanto …an artificial language devised in 1887 as an international medium of communication, based on roots from the chief European languages. It retains the structure of these languages and has the advantage of grammatical regularity and ease of pronunciation.

  7. The porangi prelate is putting the wind up the advocates for gender confusion, queer sex education & poofs in libraries. From https://www.nzherald.co.nz/whanganui-chronicle/news/brian-tamakis-destiny-church-notice-with-time-to-kill-tagline-extremely-concerning/BTWTVOQ4W5FO3PFLHEFP6QSAKY/

    ……”A person from the rainbow community is calling out ads for a Brian Tamaki church event showing a boy carrying a severed head – an apparent reference to David and Goliath – and bearing the tagline “Time to kill”.”……
    (Tamaki has explained it as a reference to Ecclesiastes 3:1-3. ‘…there is a time to kill, a time to heal.)

    A spokeswhatever for the freaks who:

    …….”did not want to be named but identified as non-binary, said the church’s promotional material was extremely concerning.

    “[This is] dehumanising talk, where we’re the paedophiles, and we’re the filth, and we’re the degenerates. And there’s a logical end point where we get attacked on the street.”…….

    This could get interesting. 🙂

    Does Inflation Lead To Civilizational Collapse?

    With the US national debt at $34 trillion and climbing, USD reserve status under pressure, inflation destroying standards of living, and the Biden administration stoking costly war on several fronts, perhaps it’s time for more thoughts on the Roman empire.

    80% of all dollars in circulation today were printed since Covid…

  13. WHAT RELIGION IS YOUR BRA?
    A man walked into the ladies department and shyly walked up to
    the woman behind the counter and said,
    ‘I’d like to buy a bra for my wife. ‘
    ‘ What type of bra?’ asked the clerk.
    ‘Type?’ inquires the man, ‘There’s more than one type?’
    ‘ Look around,’ said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable.
    ‘In fact, despite the abundance of options, there are essentially only four types of bras available to choose from.’
    Relieved, the man asked about the types.
    The saleslady replied:
    ‘There are the Catholic, Salvation Army, Presbyterian, and the Baptist types.
    Which one would you prefer?’
    Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them.
    The Saleslady responded, ‘It is all really quite simple.’
    The Catholic type supports the masses;
    The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen;
    The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright;
    The Baptist type makes mountains out of molehills.
    Oh and
    Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD , E, F, G, and H are the letters used
    to define bra sizes?
    If you have wondered why, but couldn’t figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!
    {A} Almost Boobs.
    {B} Barely there.
    {C} Can’t Complain.
    {D} Dang!
    {DD} Double dang!
    {E} Enormous!
    {F} Fake.
    {G} Get a Reduction.
    {H} Help me, I’ve fallen
    and I can’t get up!

    oh They forgot the German bra.
    Holtzemfromfloppen!!
