Face of the day

You have to be made of sterner stuff than most to be a body guard.
It also takes courage to stand up and be counted when the personal cost is so great.
He knows that this interview could damage his career but he did it anyway.

We’re not anti Semitic at all. We have a Jew with us.

The serial protesters/rent a mob were out in force again on Saturday, proving that they’re in no way at all anti Semitic.

And to quote Joe Carolan’s rant from the July protest, they can’t be anti Semitic because they had a (token) Jew with them. Just like “I’m not racist, I work with a black guy” or “how can I be sexist, I’m married to a woman”.

Because the people [?] led by Whaleoil and repeated by Paul Henry, and Mike Hoskings, and all the rest of the right wing scum in this country, was that we were anti Semitic. Linda where are you, where’s my good friend Linda? There she is, Linda’s a Jew for peace. Give her a cheer!

It all started nine years ago…today

Today is the blog’s birthday…it is nine years old today.

The first post  was a photo of my desk, my phone, some keys and a knife.

Nine years on…this was the start

Things have changed somewhat…back then I was the only reader…and people wondered what I was doing wasting my time on a thing called a blog…what was that anyway?

For nine years I have lived my life in public…sometime too much in public, but that is how it goes.

This was where it has ended up so far.

The Huddle

newstalkzb

I was on Larry Williams’ show The Huddle last night with Josie Pagani at 1740.

Our topics were:

  • Ukraine and Russia shaping up for fisticuffs.
  • The Oscars, not sure what we are going to argue about on that one, maybe I‚Äôll ¬†Josie take the lead on that.
  • The¬†¬†Cunliffe situation with funnelling money through a trust to fund his leadership bid campaign ‚Äď a bit of hypocrisy! ¬† Read more »

Whaleoil is mobile again

The Team at Cre8d implemented the new theme for Whaleoil late on Friday.  You may have noticed some small visual changes for the main site, but the objective was to fix the mobile view for Whaleoil.

We pretty much didn’t have much to “fix” – we needed something that worked, at all!

So try it out on your phones, tablets, iPads and phablets – it’s going to zoom along.

This is last month’s breakdown of platforms

It will be interesting if those stats change significantly now that Whaleoil does a better job of delivering mobile content.

Now that the Mobile Theme project is off the list, the next thing we need to focus on is to get the merchandising store up and running!  We have a supplier Рnext to-do is to put up a little e-shop.  Will keep you informed.

Another month gone, how did we do?

With February a short month, we still got our coveted 2 mil. ¬†Always hard with the additional public holidays, so that’s made the Team happy.

Thank you, and goodbye… to Nick. ¬†Nick Bird has been a faithful Whaleoil volunteer for well over a year, and it’s sad to have him leave us. ¬†Thank you for all your help Nick, and all the best with your studies. ¬†Whaleoil volunteers may all be doing a relatively small part every day, but add those together and it allows Cameron and I to spend more time on the meatier stuff. ¬† Read more »

Let’s play Whaleoil Bingo

Let’s play Whaleoil Bingo…Annette King and Chris Hipkins were playing today.

Annette King went after me in parliament today, too gutless to speak to me in private, the land lady went troppo…even mentioning SOCKs¬†and Silly First Name Syndrome (starts at 6:01)

I wonder what the police interviews with her say? We will find out soon enough.
