Hi neighbours - Principals in schools are backing the government's plan to ban most vape flavours.
They warn that without firm action, New Zealand will have a new generation of people addicted to nicotine. Many students mistakenly believe that vapes contain only water and flavouring.
What are your thoughts? Should vaping be banned in schools?
Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?
These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.

2 tblsp bees wax
4 tblsp coconut oil
7 drops lavender essential oil

2. Remove from heat, add oils, and whisk well.
3. Pour into containers and leave to cool on the bench.
