There was nothing in the article about Maori translating to the F bomb. A reply wondered what F off in gaelic was. but that's about it. Cool site/article though. Thanks for that. The name Maori referrs to the native peoples that originally settled New Zealand. Here's one of their warriors on my label;

Found a pic of him on the National Geographic site where people are encouraged to upload travel photos. And yeah,it's misspelled in this initial rendering. Gotta redo it.

I just found a video where the Maori people signed a treaty with the NZ government to conceed that they were ripped off. sounds all to familiar to me,being the granson of an Apache chief.
http://
I learned from this video that it's pronounced "Mowree".

At my age,I feel even more for that part of my family. How many of them were butchered for their land? Anything trys to live,evil white men will rub then out. Decent whites aren't like that,but have no idea what it's like to be a half breed to your own people. It ain't easy,it just is. So I understand what the Maori are going through. Makes me wonder. Kinda cool how they say the Maori is greeting the gov guy. Looks like he's ready to kick his a$$ to me...

don't get too serious on me, bruva. past is something we can never change. don't mourn the past, smile toward the future.


today at Okoboji Brewing while picking up a few supplies, 4 people were wanting a single growler filled. they all were tasting what they had on tap. when they got to the Apricot Ale, one of them said, "It tastes really good! Like apricot, but not in a bad way!" it made me chuckle a little.

Yeah I know the article doesn't give the trasnlation, that's why I included it (I'm guessing you are using the mobile app?)

It's just thast seeing what the Maori are going through only now,it brings it all back. that Maori fella at the beginning of the video sounded familiar though. This Latitude48 IPA is good with vodka though. Need it,as I'm a bit sore from bottling day. And no,not using mobile app.

"If your dad drinks soda, then you've really got two mums"

It's been a couple months since I heard that one and I think it has streaked through my head every day since.
