Today was a remarkable day, I wandered into the center at about 9.30am because I didn't have much to do and turned on the computer. I can only get Facebook at the center because the censorious government here don't want their dissidents to have a chance to yak to the world. Because my mate Gary Miller has been putting the hard word on a few people to help get Koto a second hand or reconditioned oven I posted that he was an all round good bloke. Then I checked my emails, Oh My God! Thanks to Gary the wonderful Andy Docherty of Southern Hospitality had taken up our cause and managed to get a brand new Turbo Fan Oven donated by Moffat and Agility! 'Oh My God.' I cried out... then I cried! Then I did my happy dance again. Gary and Andy are members of the New Zealand Chefs Association which is by far the best, most caring, most professionally responsible group of people that I have ever been privileged to be a part of. You may not like to hear it Gaz but truly... "There's only one Gary Miller" So thank you so much guys, I'm planning a bit of a thank you video which I'm hoping you both will enjoy.
