When I was very young, maybe 4 or 5, my parents took me to watch Torvill and Dean who came to New Zealand and did their ice skating thing at the Hutt Park Raceway
Dear White America For better or for worse, your country is the leader of the Western world.
I pretty much disagree with the man on every political level imaginable, but he is also a friend. He’s planning on running in the London Marathon and raising money for the Cancer Society.
