A Walk in the Wild – The Amazing Natural History of Norfolk Island

Thursday, February 28, 2019


Agnes Hain, one of Norfolk’s most respected tourism entrepreneurs launched the ‘Walk in the Wild Amazing Natural History of Norfolk Island’ DVD and video 5 years ago. 


We now have a digital record of Norfolk’s ecosystem from the volcanic eruption 3 million years ago through to recent times.  You can learn about the work to save several of our endemic bird species from extinction.  Do you know about the world’s tallest tree fern, how the Providence Petrel saved a settlement, or how the root of the routi tree was distilled to produce alcohol?  Be amazed by the bird without a nest, and the bird that can glide for 10 minutes.  Wonder, (like us), where the Whale bird goes after leaving Norfolk each year – it remains a mystery.  Hear Bubby Evans talk in the Norfolk language about how he supplied the local school with ink from the sap of the bloodwood tree up until the 1940s.


This is sure to become one of those ‘must have’ mementos of a Norfolk visit, with profits from its sale going towards scholarships for young Norfolk Islanders.

9 Words women use

Thursday, February 28, 2019


(1). Fine:

This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.


(2) Five Minutes:

If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.


(3) Nothing:

This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.


(4) Go Ahead:

This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!


(5) Loud Sigh:

This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)


(6) That's Okay:

This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. 'That's okay' means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.


(7) Thanks:

A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'. that will bring on a 'whatever').


(8) Whatever:

Is a women's way of saying a really bad word.


(9) Don't worry about it, I got it:

Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.
