Favourite foodie finds

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite foodie finds on your travels through NZ. Have you come across a particularly amazing cafe, bakery restaurant or food truck? Had an especially delicious pie, burger, sandwich, smoothie bowl or cronut? Been to what must be one of the country's best fish and chip joints? Or been pleasantly surprised by a town's food scene? Please share the details below and include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Cheers.

What have you been doing to deal with the heat?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hamilton and Cambridge had highs of 29 degrees C on Wednesday, and some surrounding areas reached the 30s.

Spare a thought for those whose job makes the heat unavoidable. Karāpiro Falcon Industries owner Josh van der Valk and his team are an example - welding in head-to-toe protective gear.

Don't poke the bear

Paul from Pukete

One only has to cast their mind back to the White House Correspondents dinner of 2011,where president Obama taunted Donald Trump in the presence of the nations press elite
Trumps response was to take out the presidency in 2016,ousted this year by Biden under perhaps spurious circumstances.
What is his next move



My bet he will follow the example of Ross Perot in 1992 &1996 and Theodore Roosevelt in 1912 start a third party.

consider he gained 75 million votes 48%

Starting MAGA party is a given.

The caps are made and the tea shirts printed already

If each of the 75 million contribute just $10 a month to his war chest, that equates to 900 million a year

1.8 trillion to challenge the next electoral events in 2022, splitting the republican party asunder



He will address the confusion of their voting systems and the arrogance of the digital media giants.

Doesn't pay to poke the bear
