Could someone please write a more positive letter? I seem to get these emails every month.I shouldn't be made to feel guilty about having money in my account, most of which was returned to me over a long period where there were no guarantees which could be made. How about accenting the positive by sending profiles of someone requiring the money, and pointing out I can fund from my credits?See More

I thought New Zealand has so many good wines that you don't need any of that imported stuff. On the other hand, I understand that you have to "sample" it just to confirm that this is still the case.

Hi Grant

I guess we also know each other from Kiva. I am actually half a Kiwi myself - you see we have a lot in common. Looking forward to keeping in contact on this site.
