    AmeriNZ 356 – Eine schwierige Zeit

    AmeriNZ 356 – Eine schwierige Zeit

    This is probably the most “me” episode in a very a long time. I begin today with the obvious: Talking about where I’ve been, and why I wasn’t podcasting. It was personal.
    I move on to talking about what I’ve been up to (including what may have contributed to my difficult time): I’ve been working on projects, and there’s an update to the solar energy project. There’s even a health update.

    AmeriNZ 355 – Sun cents

    AmeriNZ 355 – Sun cents

    Not for the first time, I decided to re-record because I didn’t like what I’d done. This time, that allowed me to add more stuff to talk about..
    After the Covid and NZ news, I update where things are at with my solar energy system. After that, I talk about my recent guest spot on ArcherRadio. That leads me to talk about some changes I’m going to make in what I do on this podcast.

    AmeriNZ 354 – I got the power

    AmeriNZ 354 – I got the power

    A day late, but I still begin with the vaccination update I started last week.
    The vaccination talk leads to some NZ News about a particular person who tested positive this week. This came after the quarantine-free travel between New Zealand and Australia began on Monday. After that, I talk about why I wasn’t able to record yesterday, including a very powerful development for me.

    AmeriNZ 353 – Working the plan

    AmeriNZ 353 – Working the plan

    This episode includes the debut of a new mini-segment, something I’m beginning because of a conversation I had on the AmeriNZ Facebook Page.
    I begin today by talking about New Zealand’s vaccination programme, how that compares with Australia, and also about related topics. Then I move on to talk about stuff I’m doing to my house, projects to help prepare the place for my retirement. The latest project also fulfils one of Nigel’s dreams, which makes me happy, too.

    AmeriNZ 351 – Fourteen years

    Today is the fourteenth birthday of the AmeriNZ Podcast, and, as it happens, that means it’s exactly one year after my previous episode. Patience is a virtue.
    I begin today talking about what I was up to over the past year. First, the point where I left off: New Zealand being under lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I also talk about health things, my personal journey, and things I did to help me adjust to single life.
