Clearly I need to brush up on KM trivia! As a mea culpa, here’s a tragic tale of the ‘Perils of Icecream’ http://bit.ly/55u8oe #tbreaktweet

Am I the only person to find the juxtaposition of ‘Katherine Mansfield’ and ‘camping’ a little unexpected? http://bit.ly/6ERDt5 #tbreaktweet


Today in History 6 Jan 1953, Godfrey Bowen sets world sheep-shearing recordĀ  http://bit.ly/6awwnV

Gotta love NZ and our sheep!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted up here…I’m making a plan to get more buildings and sites etc blogged about over this year.

To keep me going and to keep readers inspired I’m going to re-post tweets by Historydotnet, as they tweet a daily this day in history.

So here is today’s: Today in History 4 Jan 1958, Ed Hillary leads NZ party to Sth Pole http://bit.ly/7S2Xw3 – 1st since Scott in 1912 #onthisday

Also if you have a favourite place or exhibition let me know and I’ll do some research and blog about it for you.
