    And now for some memorable Kiwi Quotes.

    First off the mark David Lange, former Prime Minister.

    He was a Plonker at running the country, but his wit was legendary.

    To US Ambassador H. Monroe Browne, who owned a racehorse called Lacka Reason: "You are the only ambassador in the world to race a horse named after your country's foreign policy."

    Of his political colleagues: "If you took the glasses off some of them they'd be rendered dumb."

    Asked about the Security Intelligence Service by an opposition MP, he responded: "I can understand the member's desire to have a passing connection with intelligence which seems to have by-passed him all his life. He has kept his secret for years."

    To a journalist who asked: "Prime Minister, can we go back to Ruatoria for a moment?": "Certainly, goodbye."
    Lange: "Well I think that is a question which I would deem simply so stupid as not to be worth answering,"
    Journalist: "Well I can't quite understand..."
    Lange: "Well that confirms my assessment of the question."

    When asked: "Prime Minister, I wonder if we might have a brief word about Australia" by a journalist, Lange replied: "Wombat"

    The statement which has been made by the Leader of the Opposition was that the intelligence has stopped. I don't know whether that was a personal confession or whether it was a statement of position.

    And the classic from his oppositon of that time.....

    And some quotes about Kiwi Land

    A country of inveterate, backwoods, thick-headed, egotistic philistines" ....... Vladimir Ilyich Lenin 1909



    "I believe we were all glad to leave New Zealand. It is not a pleasant place. Amongst the natives there is absent that charming simplicity .... and the greater part of the English are the very refuse of society." ....... Charles Darwin 1860



    "If it would not look too much like showing off, I would tell the reader where New Zealand is." ....... Mark Twain 1897



    "The first european to find NZ was a Dutch sea-captain who was looking for something else ... It takes its name from a province of Holland to which it does not bear the remotest likeness, and is usually regarded as the antipodes of England, but is not. Taken possession of by an English navigator, whose action was afterwards reversed by his country's rulers, it was only annexed by the English Government which did not want it, to keep it from the French who did."....... William Pember Reeves 1898



    When George Bernard Shaw visited New Zealand a reporter asked him his impression of the place and, after a pause, Shaw is said to have replied: "Altogether too many sheep" ....... George Bernard Shaw 1934



    "Terrible tragedy of the south seas. Three million people trapped alive." ....... Thomas Jefferson Scott



    When asked his opinion of New Zealand: "I find it hard to say, because when I was there it seemed to be shut." ....... Sir Clement Freud 1978



    "New Zealand was colonised initially by those Australians who had the initiative to escape." ....... Robert Muldoon 1981

    Kiwi Land has a funny wee tradition that started in the late 70's on the road to Tauraga from Auckland.

    Someone erected a white cross on the side of the road after a fatal traffic accident.

    All around the country now there are white crosses dotted along the side of the road. Some with engraved plaques, often fresh flowers show the aniversary day for you.

    You can tell a bad section of road or a nasty corner, the crosses grow in number as a silent warning to take care here. One corner I Know of had around 19 crosses on it when I last went through it about 5 years ago.

    You can always tell when driving on main routes that you are coming up to a country Pub, the crosses increase in frequency, and fade away in number after you have passed by. "Now why is that" I wonder mockingly at Kiwi's propensity for doing the number one stupid thing.

    Roading authorities have tried to ban these mute testimonies, and failed. they re-appear after being taken down, Kiwi's as a group have decided they are a sacrosanct monument and should remain.

    Certain crosses on certain roads have more significance than others to us that answer the sirens wail in the middle of the night. Thats just the way it is.

    They have tried to stop some of us from putting them up on more notorious sections of highway, and failed. The public outcry was not worth the effort.

    And the most bizzare part is that the corner mentioned above is probably the same as when i last drove through it. They might fix it in another 10 years or so.

    I hope so.

    These roadway markers are common around here too. I have even seen some at the sites of shootings or stabbings.

    Here is an article of a roadside memorial for two teens killed in Hawaii last August. During the service, the group was struck by a car killing another teen and critically injuring three others.
