If you could please share my Fundraising page and Givealittle link. There are people sharing their stories of their stay at Ronald McDonald House South Island (Christchurch & Invercargill).
I have never had a passion in my life - but this is it I am wanting to kick butt and raise as much as possible!

Every little cent counts - if everyone on this page donated $1 there would be over $22,000 how awesome would that be!

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

They might be black and white in the wild but a waddle of colourful penguins will be coming to Christchurch this summer – and you can help choose the final line-up.

The Pop Up Penguin project will see 115 specially designed sculptures located across the city from November.

The Wild in Art trail will include penguins painted by 50 established and up and coming artists and they will be in place for nine weeks, giving locals and visitors the chance to see them all.

Among the artists taking part is Indonesian artist Zulfirman Syah who survived the March 15 mosque attacks.

Stuff is inviting you to help commission one of the sculptures by voting for your favourite from five design finalists. Voting can be done here from midday on Monday until midday on Sunday, September 27.

Qigong and Zhineng Qigong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese holistic therapy. It is the foundation to Tai Chi, but relatively simpler than Tai Chi.
Qigong includes dynamic and static forms.
Zhineng Qigong emphasises moving meditation rather than static meditation.
It uses the consciousness, body, breath, sound vibration and universal Qi(energy) to bring about positive transformation of the body, mind and spirit.

“After practicing Zhineng Qigong, my cancer disappeared. In the practice, I feel protected, joyful, safe and more energy. Healing comes naturally when we get out of the way and go beyond our attachments. Our new life is starting Now!”
~ Luise Kohl-Hajek, Germany

“The gentle movements stretch every muscle in my body although they look very simple. My muscles feel stronger, and I am mentally stronger too. While practicing, I feel the sense of “unity with the universe.””
~ Susan Sky, NZ

“Through regular qigong practice, my back pain is healed and my spine is more flexible. I had also been suffering severe shoulder pain for months. Just like a miracle, after one qigong class the pain had gone. The pain did come back a couple of days later, but much milder. After regular practice, I am pain free. This was a wow fact for me. I LOVE the feeling of connectin to the Universal Qi, and would like to share qigong with others.”
~ Graham Good, NZ

Wed
10 ~ 11:45 am Qigong intermediate class starts 14 Oct.

My daughter was at the Dogwatch shop, said they were in need of donated goods household goods, clothes etc. She said the shop was busy but they definately are in need of donations. I would be happy to take anything you would like to donate, as their shop is in New Brighton, it probably is a bit far for most. You could drop off to me, or I would be happy to pick up. It is for such a good cause, Dogwatch do an amazing job, and I am not sure what happens to stuff after we put it in the clothing bins. Thanks for your time, Jo

The well-known former Hornby Clocktower site is for sale.

On the corner of Main South Rd and Brynley St, the property is the site of the former Hornby Clocktower building that marked the southern entrance to Christchurch for more than 50 years.

It was built by accomplished Christchurch architect Don Donnithorne in the 1960s, who was part of a new school of architects who dominated Christchurch's post-war cityscape with clean, modernist designs, and was home to the Central Canterbury Electric Power Board.

Family-owned investment company Epoch bought the property in 2005. They completed a full refurbishment in 2010, just three months before the February 2011 earthquake. The building was demolished in 2014.

Epoch has redeveloped the site into a mixed-use complex, naming it the Clocktower Centre in a nod to the past.

It comprises four main buildings with a total of 11 tenancies including fast food chain Carl’s Jr, Snap Fitness, Australian retailer Godfreys, Oil Changers and a host of other businesses.
