Tonys cure for Flu symptoms

We are seeing flu symptoms from the late games at the Rugby World Cup 2011.
With the cold weather appearing due to the late game schedule ,we are seeing guests at the breakfast table at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast with the sniffles and sore throats. I will address my cure for a sore throat in another posting but this one is my advise for anyone that has the beginnings of flu symptoms.
Have a LemSip drink.
I find it works well as a relief .

Rugby World Cup Quarter Finals

its now into the business end of the Rugby World Cup with the Quarter Finals being played in Wellington and Auckland this weekend.
Wellington has South Africa v Australia and Ireland v Wales .
Auckland has England v France on Saturday and New Zealand v Argentina on Sunday at Eden Park.
We are full house at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast so it’s late nights and early starts for Marlene and myself.The atmosphere has ramped up in interest in the games. New Zealand has seen the withdrawal of Daniel Carter and that was like a black cloud of despondency had settled over the country…. But rugby is a team game and I am sure the team will step up to address the issue.
I have commitments with Supercare4u at the games so I will be rolling into bed at midnight and up at 0700 the next morning to help Marlene with the breakfast servings.
that’s business tho. you do what you have to do.
I read that Steve Jobs has passed away.RIP Steve.Your brilliance will be missed.It’s sad that the bright ones seem to go earlier….

Who is Mr Darcy

Today is Mr Darcy’s column. We have a dog on the property. He is a male “Spoodle”. This is a cross from a cocker spaniel and a poodle.
He has the cocker bum which goes from side to side when he is excited to see you and the brains of a poodle. Sometimes a bit too smart !
He is Marlene’s dog and she loves him. He is a small dog and kinda cute……for a dog!
He is 18 months old and has been a welcome addition to the property. I was concerned about the issue of running Eden Park Bed and Breakfast with a resident dog, but so far he has been a treat with the guests. I was surprised one day to see a guest come out to breakfast and then insist on going outside to play with Darcy. Obviously the dog just loves this attention.
We are still full house with the Rugby World Cup 2011 in the country. This weekend we have South Africa v Samoa at North Harbour,Albany and England v Scotland at Eden Park.
Should be lots of face war paint from the various fans.Check out our various U Tube uploads.

Auckland's top Restaurants offer Terrific food, served with great charm and efficiency in a smart but probably somewhat informal atmosphere.
