Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Lost dog

Andrea Neighbourly Lead from Saint Johns

I have , about twenty minutes ago, seen a black , middle sized dog , looks quite young also, cross Baddley Avenue to join other dogs at Madills 'Farm.It was on the road so I sounded my horn, it moved away briefly onto the footpath and then crossed the road to Madills before I could stop my car and reach it. The dog was wearing a collar . Do hope its found asap. Also, on Allum Street, I saw another black dog roaming but passed too quickly to see more. Do hope these gorgeous pooches are safe.

Does anyone have a bundle of magazines they'd be happy to part with? Doing courses with students who need to look through various topics for inspiration. Many thanks in advance.
