WAKA NATHAN AKA the BLACK PANTHER

John from Woolston

I was saddened to read today that another GREAT All Black has died.
I well remember watching the great Waka Nathan playing - he was dynamic and was part of that great era of All Blacks who were real men not just pumped up gym products.

I well remember watching the great Waka Nathan playing - he was dynamic and was part of that great era of All Blacks who were real men not just pumped up gym products.
Wakas loss will be felt by the older rugby community who will recall with fondness and pride those GREAT All Blacks who toured for months overseas with little compensation and no huge team of support specialists plus they played the whole 80 minutes of the game.

Council to install smart water meters ahead of next year's excess use charge

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

New smart ultrasonic water meters will be installed in about 1200 east Christchurch homes over the next six months.

The meters can send information about water use back to the council directly, which means staff will no longer need to visit a home to get a reading.

New smart ultrasonic water meters will be installed in about 1200 east Christchurch homes over the next six months.

The meters can send information about water use back to the council directly, which means staff will no longer need to visit a home to get a reading.

The new meters, which the council intends to eventually install across the city, also collect more data about water use and can provide readings over the course of the day.

The first installations in east Christchurch come as the city approaches its last summer before the introduction of an excess water use charge.

From July 2022, households using more than an average of 700 litres of water a day over a three-month period will be stung by the new charge. The average Christchurch household uses 540 litres per day. Continue reading here.

There was NOTHING in the messages that I consider to be a problem and the fact many of my messages had many likes would tend to suggest others agree.

The moderation on this site a a joke....

I was attempting to have a robust conversation (within the guidelines) but the powers that be seem intent on silencing anyone you says anything except nice weather and how's your knitting.

Talk about absolutely pathetic.

Morning Neighbours,

Have a look at this wooden plane restoration.
The body was no longer flat and the blade soft an very tired before we restored it.

We built up the blade with a hard facing TIG filler rod forming a very durable tool steel cutting edge. All sides of the body were then sanded, squared up and made flat before a nice coat of oil was applied.

We love doing this kind of work and could do the same for you.

Have a great day.

Cheers

Start of daylight saving prompts tsunami siren testing

Sunday (September 26) marks the beginning of daylight saving and is the day for testing of Christchurch's coastal tsunami sirens.

People near the coast should expect to hear tsunami sirens sounds for up to two minutes at 11am on Sunday.

“People shouldn’t be alarmed to hear the sirens going off and don’t need to evacuate," Christchurch City Council
acting head of Civil Defence and Emergency Management Rebecca Newton says.

"The testing of the sirens though is a good reminder to people in coastal and riverside areas that they should have an evacuation plan in place so that everyone in the family knows what to do and where to go if there is a tsunami evacuation.

“While we are likely to get advanced warning of a distance-source tsunami triggered by a large earthquake overseas, if a tsunami is triggered by a very large earthquake closer to New Zealand people may need to evacuate quickly so they should have an emergency bag at the ready."

In the event of a local or regional source tsunami, there may not be enough time to activate the warning sirens. In those circumstances, the most important warning is the earthquake itself, which is why people are encouraged to adhere to the national tsunami message – ‘Long or strong, get gone’, Newton says.

People can check Christchurch City Council's interactive online map to find out if by they live or work in a tsunami evacuation zone.

Visiting Tom Cat

Faye from Woolston

UPDATE: Thank you everyone for your supportive comments. The paper collar worked, and his owner texted me. I got the impression the owner may now be on the path to getting him neutered. Shame in a way as I may not be visited by him again, but on the other hand it's much better for him.

Hello. This tom cat has been calling to see me for a feed for the last three annual cat mating seasons, then he disappears again. (I don't have an non-neutered female to engage his interest.) The first time he was about a year old, bigger in the second year, and this year he is fully grown. He's reasonably socialised, and will walk into the kitchen like a boss when I open the door. Last weekend I saw him on the front lawn of a house in Smith Street down near Linwood Park, but he may have been stalking a bird rather than relaxing at home.

Does anyone recognize him? I'm weighing up whether to properly adopt him, have him vet checked and neutered, etc, but don't want to steal him away from someone else if he does have an owner. Please reply to this message to contact me.

80-year-old retail veteran yet to face a dull day after 64 years in the industry

Happy Tuesday neighbours,

When 80-year-old Barry Souter landed his first job in a clothing store 64 years ago, the retail industry looked a lot different.

Customers were not able to browse the shelves but had to ask for clothes to be brought out from behind the counter. When a sale was made, Souter had to handwrite the sale docket. And stock-taking was very much a manual task.

But through all the changes, Souter has never stopped having fun. “It’s the people that make it. Human interaction is what keeps us all going.”

Souter’s first job was at Hallensteins in Dunedin when he was 16, and he worked for Munns in Christchurch for a long time before opening his own business in Bishopdale nearly a decade ago.
