Kittens looking for a good home

Dewi from South Taranaki District

When I moved into my new place a small kitten was hanging around and after a little while she adopted herself out to us. Turned out she was pregnant! Now I have 5 adorable kittens which I would like to find a good home for, they've just opened their eyes so it will take a few weeks before they are ready to go to their new home.
2 black ones, 1 dark grey with white feet -this one has found a very lovely home, so no longer available-, 1 stripey one and one tabby with a HUGE M (for meow I guess) on the forehead.
PM me if you would like to give one a good life - approved homes only!

Is there a Butcher still slicing bacon in Wanganui?

Vernon Neighbourly Lead from Whanganui

I am becoming disenchanted and disgruntled with the thickness of bacon being offered for sale here in Wanganui. The last batch of Bacon sliced, vacuum packed by the producer and marketed by Countdown was so thin that any tendency for it to stick to the pan when cooking caused it to tear which resulted in the entire serving appearing on the plate as shredded bacon

In the "good old days," when I was younger, easy on the eye, had energy and hair, I could ask the seller to slice for me, 10 slices of bacon , or many other types of meat, tongue, corned beef, beef etc with their slicer set on 5 or whatever number my fancy desired.
Nowadays I can not find a single purveyer of bacon in Wanganui who actually slices bacon. Countdown, New World, Pak n Save, all have theirs arriving either presliced and in bulk for placement in the Deli cabinet or presliced and vacuum packed for self selection from the chillers. The Mad butcher didn't even have bacon in stock !
Labour saving no doubt but a killer for customer choice.

SO, back to the question, is there a retailer selling bacon sliced to a thickness requested by the customer?
