Well, Viv if Ekemanuka really exists, please tell me where it is so I can go and visit it. Is it a town, river, mountain/hill, lake? It is certainly not on my AA maps. Help!, her with the RD book. MICHELLE!!!!

The book doesn't say where it is, just lists Maori place names with explanations of the meaning. Book is called 'Lilliput Maori Place Names' , reprinted from ' A Dictionary of Maori Place Names' printed in 1962. I brought it home with me, it's only an inch & a half high. lol Vivienne xx

Well Viv if your book says there is such a place I will have to accept it. (makes note to look for the book when she goes to town so she can then ask the publishers where the h... it is). OK, we can now move on to F.
