With Maori Language Week upon us, we've been adding a few more words to our te reo vocabulary and using them in our everyday lives.

Auckland skies will soon be alight with fireworks displays.
With Guy Fawkes looming, the event sparks ongoing debate over the use of fireworks.
Auckland Council and a range of national organisations have renewed calls to ban the private use and sale of fireworks after a parliamentary select committee decided in August to leave regulations unchanged.
Some people will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, held to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
Should fireworks be banned?

I am starting up an E-waste reconditioning service where I collect equipment from companies and home users, test it all, build as many working computers out of it, and provide them to community and youth groups and schools.
Even if you just have anything that is broken, I can take it and recycle it through proper places. There is generally something that can be salvaged and put together with other parts.
I am in contact with a couple of people (one building computers for kids down the bottom of the South Island, and another one that used to do it in Wellington) that are willing to link up and get something going nationwide.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in helping with, or you know of companies that have old computers and other computer/networking devices that may be willing to give them to a good cause, please come back to me.
As Halloween edges closer, some Auckland streets are going all out to decorate their homes and stock up on sugary treats.
Others will be banning trick-or-treaters this Saturday night in post-pandemic New Zealand.
