Thought for the day…”If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
”Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.”
Yesterday, 6th February was Waitangi Day in New Zealand. It is a public holiday held each year to celebrate the signing of the famous Waitangi treaty, which made New Zealand part of the British Empire. There is still a lot of argument over the true translation of the treaty, and the celebrations at Waitangi have often been accompanied with minor troubles and protests. Waitangi Day is also the same date as Bob Marley’s birthday. As Waitangi Day falls in the hottest part of summer in New Zealand, then many people use the extra public holiday to visit the beach.
