    Perhaps NZ should be the good neighbour and send some of its water (**) back to NSW instead of China as it seems that it does originally come to us from the NW.
    I believe that water is currently being given away to those buying up NZ. Sorry but that might be enough for animals but not for grass and other crops as well.

    Our thoughts are with you in your time of need and NZers are a generous bunch so I am sure that we would increase our 3rd world aid budget appropriately.

    (**) We could even be agreeable to do an equal volume swap for some very tasty proof spirit produced just outside Melbourne. I can but wish.

    (I am sure that some kind moderator will move any off-topic remarks to somewhere more appropriate if things look like getting out of hand, but meanwhile . . .)

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 35 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 2,290 new entries have been added and
    • 74 relatives have been matched.
    All numbers up this week, and always good to see New Members joining. Another quiet week and not to turn this into a weather update, but we've had a lot of rain this week. Hopefully the hot weather can return for the weekend.

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches. Everyone wins.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    A reminder to all those who have tested their DNA - you don't have to wait until you've figured out how you're related to your genetic cousins to invite them to join LostCousins. Indeed, it might provide the missing piece of the jigsaw.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 37 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 2,059 new entries have been added and
    • -42 relatives have been matched.
    Bit of a mixed bag this week, only new members up, new entries a bit down and matches have gone negative. It would appear another account has been closed.


    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches. Everyone wins.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    • 37 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 2,426 new entries have been added and
    • 93 relatives have been matched.
    A much more positive week, 37 new members is impressive again, coupled with New Entries and Relatives Matched both increasing.
    Back to school for the local children here so this might free up some time for people.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 58 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 1,764 new entries have been added and
    • 104 relatives have been matched.
    Always good to see New Members joining. Another quiet week and all numbers are slightly down but looking forward to the New Members adding their relations. Numbers for this week are pretty much in line with what they were a year ago.

    In the last year, New Members have increased by 2,747,
    164,795 relatives have been added
    13,755 relatives have been matched.

    Which I think is very impressive.

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches. Everyone wins.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    And it's not just new members who have a role to play - there are plenty of existing members, including some members of this forum, who could enter more of their relatives from 1881. Whilst we can't all be SuperStars or MegaStars, I hope that we all aspire to be Stars!

    • 27 new members joined the LostCousins site

    Always good to see New Members joining. Another quiet week and numbers are down but looking forward to the New Members adding their relations.
    And as Peter has said, it's also us, the existing members that can help, so I will be using FTA today to identify people that I should be adding.

    Always good to see New Members joining. Lots of new entries but relatives matched is surprisingly low, I can only assume an account has been closed.
