Free flights from American Express

Rather than transferring points, it is possible to book with AX direct, and they will source trans-tasman flights for you with their choice of airline, probably QF/TG/EK from 25,000 points, or NZD12,500 spend. For comparison, lowest normal return fare is NZD398. Not of general interest, but I know at least a few of you have an interest in ff schemes. See http://www.americanexpress.co.nz for more details. Nothing to Port Vila yet. That is all.

Who is to blame for The Economist?

It used to arrive regularly on Tuesday, already rather late, but now I don't see it till Wednesday most weeks. Although my sub includes net access, it's much more convenient to read the dead tree version. That is also why the so-called paperless office is impossible. People prefer dead tree versions. Tonight was the last night of our speech-craft course, and lots of fun for everybody. Tomorrow, I get to be the general evaluator, a task I quite enjoy. Meanwhile, it is again very late as I post this.
