Beer sign on school bus - SST article - Setup or real story?

Today I was surprised to be reading the Sunday Star Times and find an article that had stemmed from a Twitpic http://twitpic.com/2znukp I had posted on Twitter a week before. What I thought was an innocent mistake and a bit of a laugh, has made the national weekend newspaper.

Giving Props where props are deserved

I just want to put out there what has been on my mind lately. It's a little bit random, so please bear with me a moment if you will. Also - I'm sure in the past I've touched on it slightly... but I want to make explicit my…

CAMRA - NZ chapter

Who wants to help try and establish a NZ chapter of CAMRA with me? haha..

"CAMRA's campaigns include promoting small brewing and pub businesses, reforming licensing laws, reducing tax on beer, and stopping continued consolidation among local British brewers."

I call el Presidente!

Who wants… Continue
