Cyclists & cycleways

Gary from Glenview

Can anybody please enlighten me as to why this council spent millions of ratepayers money on a shared footpath/cycle way along Kahikatea drive and Ohaupo rd and then spend more money on installing painted cycle ways as well. I had to travel from Glenview to Chartwell and return 3 times last … View moreCan anybody please enlighten me as to why this council spent millions of ratepayers money on a shared footpath/cycle way along Kahikatea drive and Ohaupo rd and then spend more money on installing painted cycle ways as well. I had to travel from Glenview to Chartwell and return 3 times last Tuesday. The first trip at 8 am and the last at 4-30 pm. All told on those 3 trips I counted 12 cyclists and 9 of them were riding on the footpath. (Not a lot of cyclists to see considering the miles I travelled and at peak times as well)
Now I don’t have a problem with that but I do wonder if 75% of cyclists are using the footpaths why do we need these ridiculous money wasting marker pegs everywhere narrowing even tight and narrow streets and corners. It must be a nightmare for trickiest Traffic would flow a lot better without these hazardous marker pegs everywhere
Am I alone in wondering why the council is pandering to a very small minority eg cyclists?
Look forward to your feedback

TAKE CARE OF THE BLOAT

Naturally Healthy

Take care of the Bloat.
We know! We know! Not the most upbeat, Christmassy way to start a blog. We also know that we’ll be feeling the effects of filling ourselves from the fluffy tufts of our Santa hats to the ends of our mistletoes. We’re talking, of course, of the dreaded but inevitable … View more

We know! We know! Not the most upbeat, Christmassy way to start a blog. We also know that we’ll be feeling the effects of filling ourselves from the fluffy tufts of our Santa hats to the ends of our mistletoes. We’re talking, of course, of the dreaded but inevitable Christmas and Boxing Day bloat. Urrrrgh.
Let’s start by giving ourselves and our loved ones the OK to go a little overboard these holidays. There’s ways to turn the yuletide on feeling full. As bloating is a gut-related condition we’ll focus on how your gut can beat the bloat.

I have tried Google but all I have found is cheap tourist items. The quality of this is top class. Definitely not a Souvenir item.

The Importance of Curtains in a Healthy Home

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Hamilton

Curtains, blinds, or other effective window coverings are an essential way to ensure your home is healthy. Here’s why.

Curtains are good for insulation: Curtains reduce the amount of air exchange between a cold window and the rest of the room. For keeping heat inside the home, high-quality curtains can reduce heat loss by around 40%. This means you will be less susceptible to illness in winter and will save money on your heating bill.

The insulation efficiency of curtains depends on the fabric type (closed or open weave), colour and weight. Curtains also function as effective insulators to help keep your home cool in the warmer months.

Dust build-up and allergens: Curtains prevent allergens from getting into your rooms. When your windows are open, dust particles and pollen enter your home. Curtains function as a barrier and collect these particles. They also prevent moisture from condensation on windows entering your room at night.

Because curtains collect these particles, it is important to keep your curtains clean to prevent mould, dust and pollen build-up. Mould in particular will result in a less healthy home and is associated with several health problems.

Correct curtain installation matters for a healthy home: Curtains should completely cover the window and be as close to the window pane as possible, particularly if insulation or light-blocking are your priorities. This effectively ‘seals’ the room from heat, moisture and light exchange through windows.
Make sure you open your curtains during the day to keep your home healthy: The sun naturally keeps your home warm during the day. It also has antibacterial properties; open your curtains every day to prevent mould developing on the furniture and carpets in your home. Close your curtains at sundown to retain the sun's heat, keep your home insulated, and keep your rooms dark so you can enjoy a deeper, more restful sleep - another health tick!

Curtains naturally attract dust and absorb odours over time. It is recommended to have your curtains cleaned every 3 to 6 months. Having your curtains cleaned on a regular basis is a good idea to keep your house fresh and clean.

If you would like to know more about how curtains improve health in the home, or book your curtains or blinds in for a maintenance clean, contact the team at Curtain Clean on 0800 579 0501.
