Big sale right now on airfare to Australia and NZ and Tahiti depending on the airline - and Qantas having a Black Friday sale.

Just got tix RT SFO-SYD for all of September, about $750pp. Anything under $1K is a damned good deal.

Friends build island to avoid New Year's Eve alcohol ban at New Zealand's Tairua estuary


Because the friends were in "international waters", they technically were excluded from the alcohol ban.

Sorry!! I'll take it back. Christchuch is in dire need of portaloos.

Sorry I missed your earlier concern. Yes, it's legit. I know some of the people involved and they're on the level.

That's pretty nice of them, when you think of all the, er, crap going down.

Re the impact of the quake, here's two good articles in the NZ Herald on it:

cost of the quake

financial health of NZ's earthquake commission

Basically NZ has a pretty good set-up to handle this kind of thing. I'm pretty confident the Cantabrians will bounce back. They are a pretty staunch bunch, Nevertheless, sure send them toilets!!

Unlike long-drops, the smell of which is not usually noted for having a fish component {#Wink}

Got this appeal by email today. Please help out if you can.

The 6.3-magnitude earthquake that struck Christchurch on New Zealand's South Island on Tuesday toppled buildings, buckled streets, and caused hundreds of deaths (100 confirmed with more than 225 people missing as I write this). The Christchurch community needs our industry's help. In fact, our colleagues in New Zealand have directly appealed to the U.S. plastics industry for a very critical, specific need: portable toilets.
Wednesday night, Simon Wilkinson, my counterpart at Plastics New Zealand, explained to me that the public sewage system in the impacted area may not be operable for more than a year! This is a dire sanitation problem that will quickly become a public health crisis if we do not offer our assistance. Simon informs me that there is a growing need for portable toilets in order to avoid adding disease and sickness to what is already a nightmare for these citizens. 


Manufactured largely from polyethylene, portable toilets are a specific need that our industry is uniquely qualified to meet. 


Here's How We Can Help

From the 2010 earthquakes in Haiti, to Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike on the U.S. Gulf Coast and the 2004 tsunami and earthquakes in Asia Pacific, I have been extremely proud of the way my colleagues in the plastics and chemical industries have lent a generous hand with both monetary contributions and in-kind donations of the supplies that our companies manufacture: Bottled water, water purification chemicals and kits, PVC pipe to rebuild water and sanitation systems, water storage containers, plastic houses and other building supplies, personal care products, medical supplies and even prosthetic limbs.
The Christchurch earthquake is no different and SPI is spearheading an industry-wide effort to produce and ship 2,500 portable toilets to New Zealand. While one portable toilet manufacturer has already graciously offered to manufacture and ship 50 units at no cost, I am asking the rest of the industry needs to help fund the overall effort. I am appealing to you so that we can raise the $1.5 million necessary by next week - in both cash donations and in-kind contributions of resin and colorant. Be assured that 100% of your donation will be used directly for this effort's production and shipment costs only. 


Act Now: Quick, Easy Ways to Participate


Please click "Donate" to securely make a donation using a credit card. If you wish to make a cash or in-kind donation directly without going through the website, please call my assistant, Susan Douglas, at 202.974.5224 or email her at sdouglas@plasticsindustry.org. Thank you for supporting the plastics industry and the people of New Zealand in this humanitarian effort. 


Sincerely,
Bill Carteaux
President & CEO
