Hi, I'm Iris.  I'm now 87, I live in New Zealand and I've been on the internet for seven years.  I still don't know what I'm doing with it but I'm doing it anyway.

The sound you hear is not the globe above squeaking, but is the sound of a native NZ bird, the tui.
To see the bird click here, then press the back button to return to this page. 

Here's a link with some wonderful pictures and information about New Zealand on it if you are interested:
