To the Grumpy cyclist on the Hutt River Trail

Trish from Normandale

In case you were not aware this is a shared area.If somebody is walking their dog & taking up no more space than the width of their dog & their own body they should not be yelled at to move over. Your pristine tyres will not get damaged if they get a little bit of grass on them & you … View moreIn case you were not aware this is a shared area.If somebody is walking their dog & taking up no more space than the width of their dog & their own body they should not be yelled at to move over. Your pristine tyres will not get damaged if they get a little bit of grass on them & you also had the option of going slightly to the right & using the full concrete covered space of the adjacent empty carpark. You had also been rude to another person walking a dog further down the trail. Obviously not in a good mood this morning.

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hundreds of thousands of inexpensive items that pass through the retail giant's checkouts every year, so it's only to be expected there will be recalls – Kmart even has a recalls page on its website, and there are 31 products on the list.

The $55 timber Occasional Chair is the latest casualty, although this is a withdrawal rather than a recall. We don't know the reason for its withdrawal, except Kmart says it is for "a potential quality issue". But what other products have been found wanting?
