Tragedy looming for visitors and locals alike

As a consequence of the Christchurch earthquakes a possible tragedy is likely to befall all those residing this side of the Tasman. Unless something happens soon we are going to have to eat Australian Vegemite on our toast

Not a problem, I prefer vegemite anyway - not that I've eaten any since I was a kid :)

To be honest, I prefer Vegemite too. I remember when you couldn't buy any onion rings from Burger King because of the earthquakes, now those were sad times.

It is actually not that bad, bean! The do hope to have production up again by July. I love the idea of a "book" on when the supermarkets start rationing Marmite. The kiwi accents on the vox pop make me homesick!!
