Big shout out goes out to my brother from another mother, James Reid, who is turning 28 tomorrow (Saturday 9 th ). Congratulations brother, I hope Norah spoils you rotten and you have an awesome weekend!

And of course my dad, who is turning 62 next Tuesday the 12 th , love you dad, you don’t look a day over 60! Look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks with the entire family!

Well, it been a busy week here at Destination Rotorua Tourism Marketing , let me recap just one day this week…

On Wednesday, we had a team building day for work. We all met at the office before heading out to Peppers on the Point (a local luxury lodge) for a team briefing/meeting, outlining the year ahead and brain storming a few ideas for the website and marketing opportunities. While we were there we enjoyed morning tea and an exquisite lunch. After lunch and a short tour of the lodge, we headed out to the Whakawareware Forest for our team building activities. It was like treasure island with compasses, where we had to find hidden clues and decode them. We also had to compete in timed activities along the circuit including bull whip cracking, mountain biking, miniature catapult building and firing and other various team activities. Needless to say, the team I was in won by a close margin of only 1 point. As it was now getting dark due to the other team getting lost in the forest, we then headed back to Action NZ headquarters where we enjoyed some laser clay bird shooting, mechanical bull riding and drinking. Then it was quickly home for a freshen up before heading to Skyline Skyrides for buffet dinner. And what a buffet I must say, first buffet I’ve ever been too where you can order fillet steak cooked to order! And of course the apple crumble dessert, Kim was gutted when she found out what she missed for dinner. It was a very enjoyable day had by all.

That about wraps up my week.

This weeks funnies will be up shortly on AdrianHodge.com so check back before lunch.

Have a great weekend everybody, Kim and I never rest, we are heading over to Taupo after work to stay the night tonight with Jason and Jane before leaving Joshua with them for the day Saturday while we drive to Auckland for a one day seminar with Andrew Demitri . Should be interesting, and fast track our Australian stock market earning potential.

Ciao for now
