Yes, we are keeping our feet on the ground on this one - no "high-flyers!"
We'll leave that to the experts as you will see on our "Launch" web-page.
Just like the Swiss with the America's Cup, we are using the expertise of
"Kiwis" to achieve a world beating standard.
On the world 'Kiwi' - it's a bird not a fruit - genuine New Zealanders
to themselves as "Kiwis" which is confusing to our US friends who have had
foisted upon them the fruit called "Kiwi" which is an abbreviation of the
"Kiwi Fruit" - now marketed as Zespri [ http://www.zespri.com/ ]
You'll find the New Zealand international sports teams wearing the Silver
perhaps a less controversial emblem.
For the "High Flyer" aspect try my good friend Mark Rocket . Check him out
http://www.markrocket.com/ and his other venture at
My thanks to all the other positive input to our call for assistance.
will follow after this very special family day.
Merry Christmas all; what ever you celebrate at this time of the year may it
be full of
good will, peace and friendship
