    The questions to the seller on this auction are superb and prove that a sense of humour still exists after such a disaster!

    News just out that no bodies were found in the Cathedral. Still a lot of digging to do. I think that guy should rebuild his house around Rocky.

    For the record I didn’t submit “Christchurchian” (sic).

    Rocky’s owner is the friend of a friend and he’s apparently been inundated with questions on the auction, the majority of which he’s managed to find a witty reply for. I take my hat off to him (and all long suffering Cantabrians who’ve managed to retain a sense of humour), it’s Kiwis like him that make my adopted home so great.

    Christchurchian? I think the word you’re looking for is Cantabrian. :P

    There is a house in Fountain City, Wisconsin, that had a large rock tumble down the bluff and embed itself in the building. It’s now a quirky tourist attraction, “The Rock in the House” – as distinct from The House on the Rock, elsewhere in the state.
