Taieri Gorge Train trip

Today international students were able to take the Taieri Gorge train for free. The train left at 11:30, so Kate and I walked down to the train station at 11. The walk is not far, and the train station is a beautiful building. It's near the Cadbury Factory. We got onboard and the train departed. It went pretty slowly. We went to Hindon, going through the Taieri Gorge and some beautiful countryside. When we got there, there was a barbecue set up for us. It was good, though not exactly what you expect from an American one (not entirely surprising). I guess it is the 4th of July, so a barbecue is fitting. It was cold, and we got back on the train and came back. We got candy for answering questions about New Zealand and had to fill out a survey. It was raining/sleeting/hailing when we got back. It has been windy and cold all afternoon. I got mail today though, which is great. I got my EFTPOS card, a postcard from Rachel A, and a letter from Jeff! It was so nice finding those things in my mailbox.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of
the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on
numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

I have heard excellent things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
