Steph Coldstream is Special


THIS WEEK ON 20/20

Thursday 30th April 2009, 9.30pm

This week on 20/20:

TAKING THE REINS: She’s a Kiwi world beater, who refuses to let anything get in the way of realising her dreams. And for Palmerston North’s Steph Coldstream life’s been tougher than most. As 20/20’s Beth Roche discovers, Steph’s battled breast cancer, and never let it get in the way of her and daughter Kody’s life on the road as the country’s top stunt horse riders. She’s even had a starring role in a Hollywood movie, as Hayden Panettiere’s riding double. But now she’s in the race of her life, as her health is threatened once more.

Girls Love Shoes









It really is true girls love shoes, she easily has as many handbags to go with them just to add weight to the stereotype.

The Real Denny Crane


I spent the morning sitting in Auckland District Court #1. It was for a story I'm working on, the court is a sad place none of the glamour of my favourite show Boston Legal. Spending time in a local court can give you a sense that the society we live in is held together by a thin thread that is getting more frayed by the case.
On the bright side I took my daughter to see Lisa Tamiti on the weekend. Lisa ran through Death Valley last year in race called The Badwater Classic, Sonya Wilson and I did a story on her for 20/20 I'll try and post a link. Lisa was spending ten hours running on a treadmill in an attempt to raise funds to have another crack at the worlds hardest foot race. Lisa took a moment from her treadmill bashing to sign a Death Valley hat that my girl had brought along, she was wrapt

This Week on 20/20


This week on 20/20 Sonya Wilson and I meet the Groens eight of whom are members of the New Zealand Barefoot Water Skiing team. Great bunch of people doing what they love and doing it as a family.

Where The Wild Things Are




One of those work days, waiting waiting waiting. Still all this waiting for talent to contact me has let me have a surf around. Being a father of two young girls can make you a bit soft in the head, but I dare you not to find the trailer for Where The Wild Things Are not cute.

I've put up the follow me gadget in the forlorn hope that somebody may actually read this and decide to join.
Hopefully tomorrow will bring some excitement to TV land and I will have something to film.
Over and out.

To Twitter or Not to Twitter

I'm new to this Twitter craze and am not sure of the rules. I noticed that someone I know, but not well from work is on Twitter. I decided I would follow them and added them to my list. Moments later I panicked and removed them. It occurred to me that they might not like me to follow them and would find it uncomfortable, and also find it difficult to ask me not to.
Its kind of wiered a bit like being back at school, trying to hang with the right crowd but not being sure if you fit. Anyway if you want to follow my Twitter along with the whole eleven other random folk go ahead, my Twitter is on the right hand side of the blog.
Cheers and here's to hangin with the nerds.
