Poll: Should Auckland build a monorail? - Reply

Matt from Henderson

Yes, I believe we need to have or build a monorail! Some people may not of think of having this but you need to look at the practical side of life. How many train failures have their been in Auckland in the recent years? Maybe 4-5 (just guessing), could be more than that. You need to have a backup transport system in case one fails so to speak.

People will ring up employers saying they will be coming late because they have to use a taxi or bus to get to work because the train has had a electric fault or failure somewhere along the line or track.

Now when the train fails, the monorail can be used as a back transport system when these things happen to the train.

You wouldn't need to ring your bosses up when the train stuffs up or has a fault somewhere, the monorail would be able to be used to take you to work much more faster and much quicker too!

That's is what I have to say about that! Yes there has been a poll on this already, but sometimes it's good to get another opinion on the matter.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Devonport & Remuera

"Kia ora - John Orr from New World Devonport here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Chalk Hill’s Grenache Tempranillo 2018. As a fan of Rhone Valley Grenache blends, I really enjoyed this Australian variation because it has the full flavour of dark berry fruits with a nice subtle spiciness making it a real pleasure to drink.” And Vaki Plakic from New World Remuera’s pick is Stoneleigh’s Rapaura Chardonnay. “I’m usually a Hawkes Bay Chardonnay fan, but this year I discovered the Rapaura Chardonnay from Marlborough, which is rich in fruit flavour and well balanced. Plus, it’s this year’s Award’s Champion Chardonnay, so you can’t go wrong with this wine!”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.

🌺🌸Flower/plant identification required please🌸🌺

Fiona from Henderson

I have 2 more plants that I need your excellent help in identifying please.
I saw these in a friend's garden and for the life of her, she couldn't remember what they were - we all have those blank moments.
1. The first one is a delicate one with beautiful tiny purple petals with grey like 'pods' on the long stem.
2. The second one is a bush type plant with larger leaves at the bottom and smaller leaves as it got taller. The flower sits on a very long stem.
Thank you all in advance.
