Poll: Do you use a top sheet on your bed?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Along with landline phones and bar soap, top sheets are allegedly an "endangered species".

It's a topic of discussion that crops up every year or so and in some places, using a top sheet when you make your bed is almost unheard of. What's your preference?

Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, groups and people from all walks of life are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees. This World Refugee Day, we challenge everyone in New Zealand to join together and take a step to make a difference.

You can take part in the #StepWithRefugees campaign, where participants will collectively walk, run and cycle 1 billion miles - the distance refugees cover each year to reach safety, by adding your steps here: stepwithrefugees.org...

Another option is to volunteer with the New Zealand Red Cross as a Refugee Support Volunteer. Volunteers help families start again, while teaching them about New Zealand culture and connecting them with people from the community.

For anyone based in the Wairarapa, Masterton Neighbourhood Support has a programme called 'WeConnect' that matches new residents from diverse backgrounds including refugees to a local buddy. If you're interested in volunteering or supporting the programme in other ways you can email Masterton Neighbourhood Support Area Coordinator, Cathy Cameron, at: cathy@connectingcommunities.org.nz

This Week is Volunteer Week!
Thank you to every single person in our community who takes time to care for others by giving of their efforts, skills and resources. Volunteers often work tirelessly and do it without payment. They show love and kindness, compassion and a sense of sharing, mercy and grace.
A BIG SHOUT OUT TO EVERYONE WHO VOLUNTEERS. How about you use this post to give thanks and pay tribute to those you know who volunteer in any way, shape or form. Like a Good Sorts Post! They might be currently active. They might be retired but you are thankful for what you saw them doing. They might no longer be with us but their memory and what they did is something you would like to honour.
I will start:
* I want to honour all the parents who go into schools to help out with reading, sharpening pencils, school trips and camps, looking out for kids and providing a uniform when they see someone is without or the parent who sends along extra lunch to share for kids who don't have any. (I know schools say not to, but I was never good at following those kinds of rules and neither were my kids, if a kid is hungry and they have no lunch, too bad, I sent extra sandwiches to share...sshhh no growling me!) And the parents who coach sports teams - you ROCK! And the parents who look out for other parents and go out of their way to make friends, so that they feel supported and welcome. Susan Brown, Lisa Reeves, Paula Richardson, Claire Barlow, Adele Stuart, Rona Akkerman (sorry about the spelling not sure there), Julie Norris, Benji Carey-Smith, Val Baker, Simon Moffit, Coach Moore for Soccer, Craig who has done the Gymnastics at the Hastings Gym Club, Peter Alexander, Sasha Watt, ... oh my the list goes on for me! Huge thanks to you and the many others who volunteered to help my kids and other kids!

The line's open and we're looking forward to freight trains travelling along it soon. But… trains and stock don't mix. So, please round up those wandering herds! And keep yourself and your stock safe: if you’re moving animals across the rail corridor (the tracks and land five metres either side) you need to use an approved private level crossing (with a Deed of Grant). Then please ring our KiwiRail train control team on 0800TRAINC or 0800 872462 every time you’re on the move. More information: grants@kiwirail.co.nz  or contactus@kiwirail.co.nz

Poll: Do you ever eat food past its best before date?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

In the US last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yoghurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date.

In the US last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yoghurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date.

"I mean, I ate heavy cream I think 10 weeks past date," says Nash, "and then meat sometimes a good month past its date. It didn't smell bad. Rinse it off, good to go."

It was all part of his year-long experiment to test the limits on food that had passed its expiration date.

Almost a quarter of young people say the older generations should help first-home buyers into the property market, a new survey shows.

Westpac NZ polled 1000 people about their opinion on parents assisting their children into their first homes.

It found widespread acceptance of the idea: More than half the parents said they would loan money interest-free and only 38 per cent would expect it to be paid back.
