A not-for-profit initiative to turn the empty roofs of Auckland high rises into community gardens has begun.
The project, called Kai in the Sky, is the brainchild of 24-year-old Becky Umbers. Staff from local hospitality businesses, which are struggling because of the pandemic, will tend to the gardens and use the produce grown there for free. Would you tend to and use a roof top garden if they were open to the community?

And of course when laws cannot be enforced or respected the law falls into ill repute. It is indisputable however that cannabis is far from harmless. Please don't confuse with the irrelevant puerile alcohol comparison. We're talking about cannabis. I will be very surprised if the intelligent public majority will vote to legalise cannabis as a recreational drug. Since we are too soft to enforce the law in the interests of health and social decency I guess we will have to live with our personal differences and put up with the damage. The first report of a smoking Englishman is of a sailor in Bristol in 1556, seen emitting smoke from his nostrils. It has taken since then to accept that it's a killer. I guess learning does take time but here we are applying much effort to ban smoking tobacco whilst asking a silly question about cannabis which is just as bad. Whilst I have much to say, please explain the sense, the usefulness, the intelligence behind vaping? What on earth is the driving force behind that lunacy.

With three desktops and a 12 year old laptop there was no way I could afford to keep pouring money into Microsoft's wallet. About ten years ago I started to dual boot one of my desk tops with Windows and Linux. I eventually settled on Linux Mint after a spell with Ubuntu. There are many good distributions to choose from. All are FREE. Major companies, governments, schools, military, scientific institutions, universities, et al, worldwide have adopted Linux to escape the monopolistic greedy Microsoft. I can't begin to list all of them but PLEASE see
en.wikipedia.org...
Many millions of dollars have been saved.
Sure, there are some things Linux doesn't do well, playing games is one and running some specialist software of course. Ten years ago Linux had many shortcomings. Printer compatibility was a major one. If there are others they escaped me and today Linux is more than capable. Linux is more stable, uses less memory, runs well on even older computers, it is fast and is relatively free of viruses and malware, free AV software is available. For my purposes there is no way I would EVER go back to MS Windows. I honestly believe, I have found, that Linux literally wipes the floor with Windows. I don't have space to write Windows faults but cost alone kills it. Linux software that comes with it is also free and superb catering for all the most used needs of the home user and most businesses. If New Zealand adopted Linux the savings would be immense. Perhaps someone can calculate it. Finally, Linux is no harder to learn that Windows, I would say it's easier!
