This day in NZ history in 1918 was Armistice Day. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month was the moment when hostilities ceased on the Western Front in 1918, following the signing of an armistice between the Allies and Germany. In 1942 the troopship Awatea went down fighting. Remarkably, everyone on board escaped safely. In 1978 All Black lock Andy Haden dived to save the rugby test match against Wales.

A quote for today from C.S.Lewis who wrote "The sun looks down on nothing half so good as a household laughing together over a meal."

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
