Hi everyone, Matt here. Did anyone watch the "War of the Worlds" this Sunday just gone (20 October) and the other two Sundays (6,13).
I don't know what others think, I thought that having the 'War of the Worlds" for three Sundays did not cover the whole story line as far as I was concerned. If whoever had produced the "War of the Worlds" on TV1, they should at least looked the the "Jeff Wayne, War of the Worlds", music version and worked along that kind of story line and push the series or movie to a month and half long, still have on a Sunday but have it more action packed so to speak if that makes sense.
Here is a youtube link if anyone wants to watch the musical full concert version Jeff Wayne and his team did in the UK sometime back.
Photo 1: A white hollyhock flower off my OTHER (NON-PINK) hollyhock bush. =D
Photo 2: My pink Little Miss Perfect roses (shrub bought from Bunnings, of course). =D
Photo 3: A white (or very pale purple) I-don't-know-what flower, but it is very pretty, so I thought I'd take a photo of it - it's the same as the unknown pink flowers I've photographed before, but white. =D
Photo 4: My snapdragons (I think). =D
Photo 5: My beans (all sorts) and pumpkins coming up. =D They are butternuts, I think - I planted the seeds from cut-up pumpkins I'd bought for dinner, then put the scraps (including the seeds) in the compost - YES, you can grow all sorts of pumpkin plants from these, I'm pretty sure that's how one of my previous, VERY prolifically-fruiting butternuts grew - from a seed in the compost!!!!!!!! =D So HERE'S hoping I get some this - or next - year!!!!!!!! =D
Photo 6: Some of my pumpkin seedlings. =D Butternuts, I think - my favourite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D Hehehe. =D
Photo 7: Two of my scarlet runner bean seedlings!!!!! =D Yay - I can FINALLY get them to grow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D AND, what's AMAZING is that NONE show signs of rot. =O The trick is to plant them, and your pumpkins, in a raised bed WITH GOOD SOIL, and then BOTH your pumpkins AND your beans will be healthy - THIS is what I have learned from this. =D Heheheh!!!!!!!! =D
A male Nyala antelope at Wellington Zoo got spooked/frightened by the fireworks and ran into a fence they believe, and they found it dead the next morning:
When Sharlene Clements heard thieves had stolen a car belonging to Denise Pearson and her son Reuben, who lives with cerebral palsy, Sharlene jumped straight to their aid. She immediately offered them a wheelchair-modified van that had been given to her business in a life-changing act of kindness.
