NZ Christmas Tree — Pohutukawa (pic by Peter Aranyi)

Happy Christmas to all readers and contributors at

My wish for you is that you get the chance to re-connect with family and loved ones. Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs, may you get the time and opportunity for some positive reflection … and I hope that you take it!

I’m going to be on holiday with my family over the next few weeks so offline much of the time (that’s just how we do it), hence posting and responding to comments here will be delayed.

Best wishes, Peter Aranyi
