Hey all lovely neighbours,

If your computer/ laptop is running slow and if you are looking for super-fast performance, I can help you with replacing the old hard drive and installing a blazing fast SSD.

I have replaced hundreds for SSD and have so many happy clients. I will re-install Windows 10 and restore your existing data on the new SSD.

If you are running a computer connecting to the Internet without Antivirus, your system is potentially exposed to unexpected threats.

Antivirus software is an important tool to help prevent such attacks. Not every type of cyberattack can be prevented with antivirus software, but it can be a great asset when trying to prevent intrusion into a computer.

I'm an authorised ESET Security software reseller. I am happy to help protect your home or office devices.

If you need a faster computer, lifetime MS Office, data recovery, anti-virus security, please get in touch.

Why Wool is Cool

• The fleece of sheep has been used to make human clothing since the Stone Age.
• Wool flourishes where there is rain and sunshine. These two elements sustain the grassy fields that sheep graze on. Shearers shave off the wool every year before the weather gets too hot. Wool is the ultimate renewable fibre.
• Wool from about 61 sheep extend all the way from the earth to the moon.
• Wool may be made from mixtures of hair from sheep, alpaca, llama, camel, cashmere, mohair, angora, vicuna, yak, guanaco, beaver or otter. No animals are harmed in the harvesting of wool.
• Wool is flame-resistant. It will not melt and stick to your skin like synthetic fibres. Instead, wool will usually smoulder and extinguish itself when the source of the flame has been removed. The fibre of choice for casinos and airlines.
• The fastest recorded time to shear a sheep is 39.31 seconds by Hilton Barrett of Australia.
• Wool is composed of same protein that makes up the outer protective layer of your skin.
• Have you ever wondered why your wool socks withstand foot stench longer than cotton or synthetic socks? Wool is naturally mildew and mould resistant because it is a natural moisture repellent, MEANING LESS STINK. Wool also reduces dust mite activity (they do not like wool!).

• Over its lifetime, a sheep’s fleece will absorb approximately 30Kg of carbon dioxide.

NZ Post Couriers

Alan from Glenview

NZ Post Couriers would have to be the worst courier company for service in NZ.

On Saturday we had a parcel which had been sent per NZ Post Couriers delivered to our letter box, not by NZ Post but by a person who had found it on the road a kilometre away! With it a note: Courier dropped on road, Homestead Place. I have tried to contact NZ Post Couriers per phone to no avail. I rang the 0800 number and was directed to a series of numbers, but nothing for complaints. I then tried their website and found a section for feedback. They said that they would not answer feedback but I decided to write something anyway but the comment box only allowed me to enter one line. Obviously they don't want complaints. I will in future not deal with NZ companies who intend to send my goods per NZ Post Couriers. Meanwhile, many thanks to the kind and honest person in Homestead Place who took the trouble to deliver the parcel.
