Air Pacific is dead …. Long live Fiji Airways?

Air Pacific to become Fiji Airways again

Item by at 2:10 pm, Monday May 14 2012

Air Pacific has opted to return to its old name as part of a broader overhaul of its money losing business.

Fijian national carrier Air Pacific will return to its maiden name of Fiji Airways, part of a broader overhaul of its image as the partly Qantas-owned airline works to turn around its struggling business.

The airline, which is 46 per cent owned by Qantas, has been in the midst of a restructure since it reported a record F$91.8 million operating loss in 2009-10. The carrier bounced back last year, reporting losses of F$3.6 million.

The airline said the name change was part of the final phase of its overhaul and was designed to strengthen the carrier’s links with South Pacific tourism.

“Globally there is high consumer awareness of Fiji as a holiday destination,” said David Pflieger, Air Pacific’s managing director and CEO. “We want to strengthen that association and also promote Fiji in every country we fly to. Returning to Fiji Airways will better reflect our role as Fiji’s national carrier, and also assist Fiji by growing tourism and interest in the nation.”

The airline said it would unveil its new brand and logo in July and expected to complete the transition to new livery by the end of 2013. The carrier was known as Fiji Airways from its launch in 1958 until 1970.

Qantas has been in talks with Fiji’s military government to sell its stake in the airline since 2010, though the talks have reportedly stalled over price. In March, the Fijian government, which came to power in a 2006 coup, issued a decree barring foreign control of the airline in response to what it said was Qantas’s excessive power over the carrier. Qantas denied that it exercised effective control over the airline.

  1. The Air Pac CEO must be dreaming. This American will shaft our airline to death.

    The name Fili has lost its gloss and its once proud friendly and peaceful reputation thanks to Military coups and dictatorship and quality of leadership Fiji is weathering under.

    Name Fiji is now associated with dictatorship,
    human rights abuses, high corruption. poverty, arbitrary execution/murders by military and worsening levels and standards of Govt Services as well as citizen mass flight overseas.

    Such negative associations will make Air Fiji a name or brand to keep away from….thanks to the Military efforts.

  2. Is this a lazy attempt to free-ride on the international globally recognized FIJI WATER brand that the illegal and treasonous military regime have tried over and over to hijack?

  3. Under the military junta that walsh gets his rocks off on the new name air pathetic suits it better.

  4. It’s called “polishing a turd” . The governments full of turd polishers right now so there you go.

  5. FREE FIJI FIJI FREE

    This is the name to replace Air Pacific. The Logo would look best with lower case
    lettering but large typeset

    f r e e f i j i ! f i j i f r e e ! (on either side of the fuselage)

    Very large letters This is a logo for Fast Forwarding f i j i

    The fiji rugby union Palm Tree might also appear alongside the logo bending in a forward direction.
    We need to keep the logo concise in both appearance and in meaning.

    Fiji Airways is regressive. Back to Captain Ganley: who one feels sure would choose to move Fiji Forward!

  6. Why worry about renaming the planes.

    when there is no passports in fiji?

    How can people leave fiji when junta make no passport policy.

  7. Will you be able to travel on air banana without a passport? Another junta sham!!

  8. The root of all problems faced today in Fiji is National Federation Party , its former leader Jai Ram Reddy and trustee Y P Reddy. Even today a group of thick heads have fully bend down with pants down in front of illegal admin.

  9. Remember the airline is the bread and butter for hundreds of families who are struggling as well in Fiji. So much negativity…you people who just commented should support this airline who has been flying since the 1950’s on a perfect safety record. Alot of develop countries are getting there economies imploded …look at Spain and Italy!!! they have kids literally begging in the streets and families dumping there children at doorsteps….sorry guys but never happened in Fiji. Who was the Junta who travelled without a passport???…obviously he/she got caught up at boarder control to the country they were travelling in huh!!!…The biggest problem facing Fiji today is the FNPF not explaining and educating people not to withdraw all there FNPF, and all the mess it got itself into instead of concentyrating on its soul purpose which was to look after the citizens atr there old age. That institution seriously needs adjustments to its management who make idiotic speeches….Fiji Airways sounds good…its a strong word directly marketing Fiji …this is a step forward for our country .

  10. Spain and Italy are members of the EU. Major difference is they are supported as part of the EU fiscal pact. Same as Greece.

    The EU is the third largest economy in the world. It is well able of supporting itself, including those countries (such as Italy and Spain and Greece), which it continues to do so with the ongoing input of capital from the countries in the North to those in the South.The rescue package.

    Air Pathetic (oops sorry i meant, Air Pacific) is an airline running in deep loss and debt and reliant on a millitary government that believes the FNPF is the piggy bank for a rainy day. A millitary government which it itself so deep in debt and losses its PM goes to India to kiss marble floors and beg for financial assistance for the country he has mismanaged and run into the ground since he did his coup d’etat.

  11. Maybe it is a sign of the times…..back to British rule….hip hip hooray !!!!
    and KEEP THE FART should keep farting hatred and venom

  12. I think they should make Y P Reddy as president of Fiji and J Rawan Reddy as PM , Attorney General and Minister for Women (easy for him to borrow petticoat in time of crisis}

  13. A shattered paradise – 25 years ago
    Lest we forget

    “At 10 o’clock yesterday morning, members of the Royal Fiji Military Forces took over the Government of Fiji. They have neutralised Parliament and by the same process have suspended the Constitution of Fiji”: Lieutenant-Colonel Sitiveni Rabuka announcing the takeover of Dr Timoci Bavadra’s democratically elected National Federation Party/Fiji Labour Party Coalition Government 25 yeas ago.

    The fijians were promised many things like taking over indian owned shops and houses apart from usual looting and stealing of properties, livestock, crops, owned by indo-fijians.

    The coup was planned at the methodists church headquarters and fully supported by the church executives led by Reverand Manasa Lasaro and other thugs after they had carried out a coup of the church, kicking out the President Rev Josetaki Koroi.

    How could on forget the bible bashing talatalas of 1987, who preach that the coup was god sent and Rabuka was a saviour for the fijians.

    The GCC fully supported and abetted the coup making rabuka, a life member of the council- what a shameless act.

    Today, we find that the indigenous fijians are much worse off and the GCC aboished, which is a very good thing.

    Unfortunately the pandora box of coups in fiji has let out the genie and the coup culture will continue……

    Fiji as a whole is much poorer now.

    If the bast*rd had been hung for treason, then there would have been no other coups subsequently

    I posted the above article yesterday but the editor of this blog deleted the same > WHAT A SHAME

  14. Interesting what kind of problems this regime sees as priorities. Rebranding the airline will cost quite a bit of money. Who got this contract? How much is being paid? Who is the minister in charge of the airline? Was the re-branding contract tendered? What is aunty Nur’s role in this? And how much did Khaiyum pocket in the process?

  15. @ Laisa

    Stop spamming every single page with your silliness.

    Fiji is poorer today, than it has ever been, because of your employer, Frank Bainimarama, and those criminals that call themselves ‘leaders’ today.

  16. Hope the government reliases what this CEO is upto before this guy leaves and there is no airline to lookup to, I would rather be travelling Jetstar or Virgin now, because the so called free food and stuff is simply pathetic. you can rather buy fast food at the airport which tastes much better. Before Pfeilger came the Airline made a loss because the Fuel price had been hedged and the GFC made people not travel at all, what is wrong now? they were making record profits before that, and you dont see pfeilger pointing that out? the 90Million loss came about because the airline had infact made a loss of $68M and pfeilger wanted to show the past executives as bad, inflated the loss with creative accounting, no wonder top Finance people got fired by the time this was announced, becuase the ceo wanted one of his man sitting there, no other reason.
    so whats wrong now? why is it still making losses and last year had to ride on the back of a $23M being compensation and refund for aircraft cancellation order to show an overall profit, because the non performing executive cannot produce profits with the huge pay he has to afford his buddies in the airline.
    this guy is making decisions that is not only damaging Air Pacific’s image and brand globally. he is basically ensured the government be so blinded that they cannot see the ways in which this guy go about raping the airline. any guesses for who is behind the Qantas share sale fiasco at Air Pacific?

    Air Pacific has already terminated ground handling agreements with qantas and the code share might be going soon, what will Air Pacific be left with? he claims to be a pilot lawyer and an MBA… now you get to doubt all of the qualifications he cliams he has, because he hires law firms in his hometown to draft basic letters that could be done before under pervious executives through local firms (Munro Leys) for $1000.00 now air pacific is suggested paying upto $35000 USD for the same stuff…..now you dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why the americans are benefitting so much from Dave Pfeilger? The Air Pacific Pilots already make fun of Pfeilger, because he claims to be a qualified 757 pilot but does not know simple things about flying…and MBA… no stupid will try to tarnise a brand that has been built so tirelessly over all this years….its marketable brand is so huge, Fiji will start getting negative travel as a result of this…

    On typical beneficairy has been a guy Loper, who had met Dave Pfeilger at some airport and a month after getting the CEO posts gets an email for this Loper freebie and guess what a few weeks later Loper is the new General Manager Airports Worldwide based in Los Angeles…. now when all your flights depart and leave Fiji, why do you exactly need a GM airports and that too in LAX where they only have 4 flights a week at max?

    the soomer Khaiyum and Banimarama wake up and send this guy packing, air pacific will start making a profit…

    it seems Delta paid Pfeilger to go and tarnise this brand so the government cannot think again about starting another airline…because this is the way it is heading…

  17. @ Indian Man: If you have something of substance to add to the debate, then please let us be mature and civil and have it right here, right now.

    If the best you can offer are childish taunts then I will recommend a Kindy or a juvie facility for you. Otherwise all other such jibes don’t work with me and as such will be ignored.

  18. @Indian Man Ref “….and KEEP THE FART should keep farting hatred and venom”…..Indian Man’s reference to ‘FART’ indicates his mis-understanding of what the article is all about .

    He is focussed and understans the ‘ Air ‘ part of ‘Fiji Air’ and ‘Air Pacific’……..then his twisted mind goes to ‘bad’ or ‘stinky’ air as in ‘fart’……..mentally Indian Man resides in the toilet most of the time

  19. Although he’s gone Ratu Mara surely was the architect of Fiji’s coups.

    Couldn’t take defeat by Bavadra and Co. Rabuka was merely used. Remember that Mara played golf with Rabuka a week before the coup in Deuba. Mara did not want to use his son-in-law because of his mediocrity. He did not have neither the military precision and the depth to successfully execute such a complex operation.

    Sanday was too clean and would not succumb to such an idea. Rambo presented the best potential and also had the respect in the rank and file.

    The old man already had his planners assembled, two still roaming the corridors of power as we blog Kubuabola and Bole. Now Kubuabola is made to preach multi-culturalism and peace, the very opposite of his racism in 1987.

    All he needed was a gun totter to take the lead and things would be done in no time.Mara’s true Son in law, Epeli Nailatikau who was in Australia at that time, discouraged NZ and Aust from intervening confirms his support for takeover. So he too became a complicit and now enjoys sitting on an illegal throne itself. I feel sorry for people who heap praises on this SOB. He should be equally blamed for supporting Rambo in 1987.

    Look at thr price mara had to pay for his sins, he had to run away from his presidential house onto a ship …..and the rest is history.

    The parable of the storey is that every dog has its day ……………..hahahahaha, just wait and see

  20. FNPF 850 million dollar scam loan to Airpacific is doomed.

    the workers of fiji have been ripped off by kaium again.

  21. I can’t understand how non performers still continue to hold on to their jobs much to the detriment of organisations they head. I guess it only happens in coup coup land where a chum of the regime can get away with shit. The sad part though is Fiji citizens are the ultimate losers in all these skulduggery. Just look at the performances now of nemani of Immigration and david of air pathetic who should have been taken to the cleaners long ago yet are still in their seats causing misery and losses to the general public. This is a product of an unaccountable reckless regime who have no consideration for the citizens except for themselves. Its no wonder why many have opted to take all their money during the pensioner reform exercise. Look at where money is being thrown to. air pathetic of all places to invest in. People are not fools its better to take their money now or there will be none sooner or later. With the new reform I wonder if FNPF will remain sustainable in the near future.

  22. A Great Diversion

    What a great diversion for the philanderings of David Philanderer..Oops! Pfliger and Khaiyum. Just change the name to Fiji Airways – going back 60 years- and all will be well with the bankrupt Air Pacific, say the mob Fiji Sun 15 May 2012.

    What difference will it make to AIR PAC’s balance sheet if you call it Fiji Airways? As they say “a rose by any other name…” In any case, why flog the Fiji brand name — what has FIJI got to be proud of under the current regime?

    Ali Baba along with his 40 thieves is in charge of the Banana Republic. All state owned entities are in dire financial straits – Housing Authority, Hardwood Corporation, FSC to name a few.

    But wait until you learn of the rot at the Development Bank. A $22 million loan at 12% interest to FBC where the illegal AG’s brother is the CEO is unlikely to be repaid – interest charges alone come to $2.6m annually!

    But we need FBC TV so that Bainimarama’s party can have pre- campaign publicity for the 2014 elections. After all, we see his and Khaiyum’s mugs on it almost every night making people sick to the point of throwing up.

  23. Last year Rewa Dairy was re-named as Fiji Dairy. New Board, Chair & Management installed.

    One year later, Fiji Dairy still cannot meet regular customer orders, especially in regard to butter. Their milk quality is poor, being mostly just re-constituted low-cream powdered milk. A lot of it still spoils after a few weeks. And the tetra-pack seals are terrible – more than half either cannot be easily grasped between the fingers, or else just tears at the end while remains stuck over the opening when you try to open the milk pack.

    These kinds of disasters happen when your primary attitude towards problem-solving is based around propaganda-shoveling, rather than on understanding and addressing the real issues.

    The Fiji Regime is famous for this kind of thing. If they go through the same motions again with Fiji Airways, then they can expect the same results they have already delivered in respect of Fiji Dairy, Fiji Sugar Corporation, Fiji National Provident Fund, Fiji Hardwood Corporation, etc., etc., etc.

  24. RACISTS MERE Samisoni appear with co-accused in court

    Businesswoman Dr. Mere Samisoni, Mataiasi Ragigia, Semisi Lasike and Apete Vereti appeared in the Suva Magistrates court today.

    Chief Magistrate Usaia Ratuvili told the Defence Counsels that all the outstanding disclosures and bail variation applications are to be heard on the 19th of next month.

    The four are charged with urging political violence and are alleged to have urged one Waisea Kaloumaira to burn the city of Suva in December last year.

    It is alleged that the four, between the months of September and December last year, in Suva intentionally conspired to overthrow by force of violence the Government of Fiji.

    Bail is extended for the four accused

    GOD BLESSES IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS

  25. @ Laisa

    Don’t you have anything better to do than attempt to denigrate those better than you? Shameful.

    Mere Samisoni is a brave and intelligent person – far more than your two bosses, Laisa.

    Stay there in Canberra and enjoy your freedoms, while good people make sacrifices for you in Fiji.

    and on the topic you bring up Laisa, why doesn’t the regime tell the public more detail what they think a breadmaker like Mere did to frighten them so much? Are they scared of inciting more violence against themselves? They should be.

    “Burn the city of Suva” sounds like rubbish to me…

  26. @Radiolucas – for supporting Georgie Speight in the overthrow of the labor government in 1999/2000

    Mere Samisoni is a brave and intelligent person – she was supplying hot breads to all the thugs at the parliament house in 2000, who were merry making , while the elected members were held hostage in the parliament house for 56 days.

    Her articles in 1987 and onwards in the local media were full of racists venom.

    For supplying bread to the thugs, she was given the Lami Open Constituency,by the SDL Party.

    This is a fact of life in Fiji Radiolucas, bubu Racists Mere samisoni’s name is in fijis history…………..for zupplying bread to thugs in parliament….and supporting the 2000 coup in Fiji.

  27. @ Lairo

    So, your personal dislike of Mere stems from her giving bread to George’s band of thugs (I agree with your term there, they deserve their punishment)? And it was a COUP, not an “overthrow”. What Rabuka, George and Frank did is illegal. Full stop.

    56 days of kidnapping in 2000 is NOTHING compared to 6 years of dictatorship, Laisa.

    I am sure that Chaudry has long forgiven Mere for any supposed insult to his ‘race’ by sending him bread to eat. So that is just a f&*#king dumb idea.

    So what about Frank and Aiyaz? They stole your country? They didn’t just take some free bread being handed out – they tortured and imprisoned innocent people, took our freedoms, and stole from the nation – what Frank and Aiyaz are doing affects EVERYONE in Fiji, not just those who like free bread or those who “zupply” free bread.

    So pull your head in and relax in Canberra. Maybe run over to your local breadshop just to make sure that they are not “zupplying” any bread to you either.

  28. Fiji’s Methodist Church says it is against giving gays special rights.

    Methodist Church of Fiji assistant general secretary Tevita Nawadra today told FijiLive the church does not approve of the promotion of gays in the society.

    I wonder what the gay members of this church has to say…….DISCRIMINATORY……..RACISTS….

  29. Methodist Church of Fiji has long lost its direction regarding its spiritual calling. It has got lost in being too enmeshed in customs, culture, politics which have taken the church away from its focus on winning peoples’ soul to Christ. This has thrust the Methodist Church into Nationalist leanings which had often shown non- Christian love towards others in many instances past

    When i see our talatala in my village (in Tailevu) placing himself in the role of one to be served and not to serve (e.g. all his food gardens are planted, kept weed free and harvested for consumption by his flock), being a main player in the regular excessive drinking of yaqona and sigidringi accompanying yaqona abuse etc …..i wonder whether he is or his employer the Methodist Church is aware of how much he is an obstacke to progress, better life and enlightenment to the villagers.

    Although i am against how Fiji dictator’s illegal attempts to muffle the church i totally agree with the sentiments highlighting the church as a problem to Fijian progress.

    Spiritual poverty and deprivation of Methodist followers can be witnessed by the high level of prison population being methodist in Fiji.

    Many high ranked Church officials should be tried for participating in coups that have crippled Fiji.

  30. Chaudhry replies to Vaniqi

    [posted 15 May 2012,1630]

    No amount of whitewashing by Permanent Secretary for Sugar Manasa Vaniqi can hide the fact that the current administration is solely responsible for the sad state of the sugar industry today, said NFU general secretary Mahendra Chaudhry.

    Industry statistics and the bankrupt state of the Fiji Sugar Corporation speak for themselves. But like the proverbial ostrich, Mr Vaniqi and his associates refuse to see the writing on the wall,” Mr Chaudhry said.

    As far as the sugar industry is concerned, it is today a question of the blind leading the blind. In just five short years, the cane crop has declined from 3.3 million tonnes to 2.1 million tonnes. Sugar produced has fallen from 330,000 tonnes to 165,000 tonnes. TCTS has deteriorated from 10 to 13.5 tonnes of cane to a tonne of sugar. These facts cannot be ignored.

    “Mr Vaniqi keeps harping about reforms when, in actual fact, the industry is being deformed.

    “All we know is that the Minister and his officials in the industry have taken several trips abroad under the guise of bringing about improvements but the results have been quite to the contrary.

    “The industry was doing much better before the Army takeover but military politics has reduced it today to a pathetic state where farmers are exiting because of the arbitrary and incompetent manner in which it is driven.

  31. Laisa.

    “56 days of kidnapping in 2000 is NOTHING compared to 6 years of dictatorship”

    You stay the course you’re on the right path, as far as that inebriate and ungrateful git Radio, he has no idea what his spewing about, because he is just as bad as Qarase.

    Fifty six day’s of kidnapping is what it is, as for the six years of what his demented mind has concocted is nothing more than six years of readjustments and not dictatorship as he believes.

    The past six years of Bai’s rule was indeed godsend because he is slowly and methodically readjusting the errors of the past.

  32. “six years of readjustments and not dictatorship”

    So that must explain why Chaudry has joined the chorus of those who call for free elections and the prosecution of your hero for his crimes “readjustments” of money into his own pocket.

    Lord, with Friends as moronic as you two, Frank doesn’t need enemies.

  33. Gobbledygooook, googlodigoom, gobleyourpoop se mani qurutanaiyayaneivoreqe, o vakadinadinataka ga ni nomu rumu i cake sa sinai e na gobbledykutu nei nomu i sa na dictator …..theitar.

  34. Poor Chaudhry how long has he been the leader of FLP/NFU? How long has FLP/NFU been formed and controlled by POOR Chaudhry

    Was it not Chaudhry that said Qarase left too much mess and “Chaudhry ” needed 5 years to stay under Bainimarama’s skirt to sort out SDL’s mess?

    And his lover boy Vayshnoi taking over as an interim minister said the coup was god sent?

    So what the F….K has Chaudhry been fighting and how long more will he be fighting.. and for who?

    He has no mandate.

    So who does he represent? Has he got a fresh mandate to dialog to rape the constitution or colloborate robbery of nation at gun point.

    Most of “US INDIANS” do NOT support CHAUDHRY to seek ANY dialogue ON BEHALF ON FARMERS OR NYONE to ANY change to the LAWFUL Constitution.

    GALI GALI MEIN SHOR HAI, MP CHAUDARY AUR FIJI LABOR PARTY CHOR HAI

    M P Chaudhary, you con man, you bastard, where is all the money collected on behalf of poor sugar cane farmers?

    Why almost $3.5 MILLION DOLLARS DEPOSITED IN YOUR CBA ACOOUNT IN AUSTRALIA?

    When are you going to Distribute it to the farmers? You SOB?

    And you along with your NFU CHOR EXECUTIVES also fooling the poor farmers in labasa about resettlement in Brazil/Argentina and collecting application fees of $30 each – You CONMAN – NOT EVEN ONE FARMER PUT HIS FOOT IN ARGENTINA.

    Whats the difference between you and Timoci Lolohea….both Master CON ARTISTS – obtaining money by false pretence

  35. Ratu Sai & Laisa!

    Why are you guys discussing issues on this blog like you are real people with real concerns?

    You are just RFMF Media Cell ghost-writers obeying orders!

    Nothing you say has any value here because once a democratic Government is back in place, they’ll just change your orders again to put a stop to you attacking the very same citizens who you swore a useless oath to defend. And you will be arguing just as mindlessly again then against the very same issues you are mindlessly spamming about now!

  36. @Jean d’coArk

    It is true that MP Chaudary has accumulated $F3.5 MILLION in his Commonwealth Bank Account, in Australia.

    Now you tell me where that money came from?

    On top of that MPC denied in parliament, after questioning from Qarase, that he had that much money in his australian bank account.

    This year, the bastard paid all outstanding taxes on the same amounting to $80,000.

    HOORAY TO FIRCA………….

  37. John Howard, for you to know this information, you would also have been part of the 2000 planning committee.Why did you hold this information back for so long?
    You are equally guilty as the person you are blaming dude !!!!

  38. @ “INDIAN MAN”

    “for you to know this information, you would also have been part of the 2000 planning committee”

    It is called ‘reading’ – not everyone has to participate or be a witness to an event to know something about it – otherwise we would never learn anything from history and be reduced to a state of perpetual stupidity.

    For instance history teaches us that nasty, brutish things happen to dictators and their cronies – something your so-called “leader” should really take heed of.

  39. RADIOLUCAS……Assumption is the mother of all F@*%K ups !!!.
    Reading what and where? To date there is no document that says that the Commander was involved . Are there any credible documents out here that suggests the same???NO I didn’t think so !! You are just some idiot with plenty of time on your hands and a very constructive imagination.
    Grow up and stop using your employer’s internet !!!!

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your site. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write
    some material for your blog in exchange for a link back
    to mine. Please send me an email if interested. Many thanks!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But imagine if you added some great
    pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog
    could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.

    Great blog!
    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!
    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your
    post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.

    Cheers
    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring
    on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my visitors would value your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.
    Hey there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely
    enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Great blog and fantastic style and design.
    Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused
    .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
    My coder is trying to persuade 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 a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d
    like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
    It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this
    excellent blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!
    Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your website on
    my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my
    mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, very good blog!
    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free
    to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog
    by the way!
    Right now it seems like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    Wonderful post however , I was wanting to know if you could
    write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Thank you!
    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as
    yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!
    Hey! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on. You have done a extraordinary job!
    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired
    of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so
    any help is very much appreciated.
    This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which
    makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.

    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Exceptional work!
    Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

    Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace
    group? There’s a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers
    Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
    Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while
    but I never seem to get there! Thank you
    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
    blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m
    thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
    Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks
    weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!
    I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later.
    Many thanks
    I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this
    website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz reply as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. appreciate it
    Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty
    much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but
    I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
    Hey there are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the
    blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
    work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    Hi there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and
    look forward to new updates.
    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Cheers!
    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
    Hello! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the great work!
    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

    . Long live Fiji Airways? | Fiji Today FijiTodays Open Forum Blog.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it only me or does it look like some of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to keep up with
    you. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your social sites like your Facebook
    page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  45. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this
    is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  46. I think that is among the most vital information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. But wanna remark on few
    common things, The site style is perfect, the articles is truly excellent
    : D. Excellent task, cheers

  47. When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get four emails with
    the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks!
