Yes, I drink your beer, always when I'm in NZ and even sometimes here in San 
Diego,  Steinlarger is a fairly good beer.  Goes well  with your green lipped 
muscles and some good Ciopinno sauce. (of course I add, shrimp, crab legs, 
clams etc.  Any othe questions?

currency here in the US.  I find absolutely no animosity toward the Kiwi's for 
not actively backing the US in the Iraqi war. <br>> <br>> To those of you who 
think we're going to engage in a big retaliation program, well I'll turn it 
back on you -- YOU DO NOT know the Americans very well.  Yes we are a patriotic 
lot, to be sure (especially since 9/11) but,we are also very diverse in our 
culture, our society and our politics.  France and Germany are get
 ting all the flak, because we pulled France's fanny out of the fire twice and 
many suspect both France and Germany had economic interests that kept them from 
backing the effort. I know of no economic interest that colored NZ's decision. 
<br>> <br>> I might also point out that I don't live under a rock.  I'm fairly 
well plugged in and haven't heard so much as a hint that NZ is on the black 
list.  We still use Fisher & Paykel products at my Health Maintenance 
Organization, stores still sell Fisher & Paykel appliances, and most of the 
muscles I see in our stores are from NZ to say nothing of the Lamb.  Don't 
worry, be happy, we're not your enemy. <br>> <br>> In all fairness to the 
French, they pulled our fannies out of the fire too, at the very begining, when 
we had our disagreement with George, and we were very thankful for that.  That 
however was 200+ years ago and over the  past 25 years or so they have been 
flacid in their support of many of our efforts.  (legitimate ones) 
  We do have a question for the French and Germans -- if you get in trouble -- 
who are you going to call? A. Sadaam Insane  B. Russia  C.Japan<br>> D. North 
Korea  E. Raratonga  F. The United States.  Even a Frenchmen could figure that 
out. <br>> <br>> But seriously, I don't think any economic boycott is going to 
befall NZ because of this. <br>> <br>> Enjoy your holiday and quit worrying.
