Dear Parents.

Local Documentary

A documentary is well under way which chronicles the life and work of former Wainuiomata resident and current Kapiti resident, Betty van Gaalen.

Betty is an inspirational woman and has been an influential figure at all levels of community and local government in the greater Wellington region for over 40 years. Despite retiring in the 1980s she has maintained a presence in political matters wherever she has lived.

Growing up in Bolton England, she learnt how to box to enable her to stand up to local bullies. She was then to get into trouble for hurting them. This fierce determination to make her way in the world and let nothing stop her, was to become her legacy.

Three lengthy interviews with Betty have captured a huge amount of information, and many memories of local and national political personalities.

Nimlin Productions, a Kapiti Coast based film company are working solidly on this project and hope to have it completed by the middle of next year. Anybody who has been associated with Betty over the years can support the project via Pledgeme.

Just thought I would let everyone know, that we host Bro Millionaire. This guy is pretty hardout, we have been following him since September. I have been catching up with him and writing the articles on his website. The thing is, this guy is making a lot of money just cruzing around New Zealand asking people for $1.

So far Bro Millionaire has made $83,000. Crazy don't you think. So if you have already heard about him or just interested in following his progress feel free to check out his website.

Respect 2005 Hiphop Festival

We were apart of the 3000 people that turned up to witness, D-lo squad who perform at the 2005 Repect hiphop festival and what a day it was, the weather was spot on and for myself, being my first time to see D-lo squad in action.

I must say it's awesome to see, people you have grown up with, entertain a crowd as such. I caught up with one of the members, and asked what they thought about having their own website. They are very interested, so in saying that, we have setup hiphop.ynui.co.nz. Its still to be designed, we will work as fast as we can, to get this site on its way.

While we were there, we managed to take a couple of photos, before we realised that the batteries for the camera were on its way out.
