It's gone quiet - almost too quiet!

It's been almost two weeks since my last post, and although I've had to rush off for a week while my father was in hospital (he's doing good, by the way - and thanks to everyone for their well wishes, also via Facebook and Twitter), nothing much has been happening here in Wellington.

I've been pretty busy with tours in any case, so I've not had a lot of spare time, which is a great problem to have of course.

However, I have been working on and off on setting up some sort of mechanism to offer some souvenirs online - something I've been meaning to do ever since I started touring about six years ago. There's a link at the top of this page called "Precious Things" - I'd be very keen to hear back from people what you think of it. Do you like or dislike the shirt? Am I being too commercial? I promise not to start sending spam your way any day soon!

I'm using an online shop system called Zazzle, which seems to do a fine job of it, and they'll happily take your credit card details etc. The products seem good quality as well, which was my first concern.

Anyway, drop me a line and let me know what you think!

  1. Hello Mike, you know what they say'no news is good news'. Lets hope that's why things have gone quiet. I just checked out the Precious Things page. I love the shirt. Can I get one in black and how do I set about ordering one?

    Good to hear you have plenty of work. You deserve it.

  2. Sorry ,you've got a new name, Jack. I was talking to my son named Mike and I typed that instead of Jack. I must have been having a senior moment.

  3. Ruth, Mike here, oops, Jack I mean... :)

    Glad you like the shirt - you can order it by clicking on the picture of the shirt, or on the links just below it.

    You can also change the style and the colour of the shirt there.

    I should probably make that more clear, eh! :)

  4. Hi Jack. I love the T-shirt and I wish you had it when I took your tour some years ago. No matter. When I visit NZ, I will come see you (maybe I will take the tour again) and buy everything you have!

    Hehe, I'd better make sure I have lots of product for you when you get here then! :)

    In the meantime, the shirt is ready for purchase - just click on it, and it'll take you to the shop!

  6. Yeah, sorry about the name change, Jack. I must have been having a senior moment :)

  7. Thanks for the info about the shirt, Jack. I'm off to order one. Is the price in NZ$?

  8. Ruth:

    Yes, it's in NZ dollars, although I just discovered you can change the link from "\..." to "\...", and it will come up with GBPs...

    I imagine the shipping will be cheaper that way too.

  9. Thanks Jack. I will try that.
