Nigel Champion is half way to 100
And to celebrate the event he hosted an evening of music making, food and friends
at his Devonport villa. None of the photos I took on the evening turned out
and I won't bore you with a thousand words. Suffice to say that a very good
time was had by all.
18 July 2001
Saw another Auckland Film Festival movie, Vengo
with Trude. It's not a great movie but it serves as a context for great Flemenco.

My Job is Ending
My employer of the past three and a half years, Brocker Technologies, has decided
to get out of the software development business and consequently mine and many
other jobs are being eliminated. Today I was given one months notice. Let the
new job search begin!

Saw my first Auckland Film Festival movie of the season, " Atanarjuat,
The Fast Runner
" with Trude, Jeorn and Liane. It was great to have
Jeorn there to discuss his native Inuit culture as depicted in the movie.

Club Night at The Bunker
None of several performance options that I had worked out, so I snuggled up
to the Bunker fireplace, relaxed with a Speights Old Dark and enjoyed everyone

My dear friend Jane Blackler started the school holidays by coming up to Devonport
for the weekend. Jane and Trude and I spent Saturday evening wining and dining
and laughing and making lots of good music into the wee hours. On Sunday, after
a leisurely frosty and sun drenched morning, we all took advantage of the crystal
clear weather by ascending the Sky Tower for the first time. It was a great
way to cap off one month and kick off another.
