AS NEW – Sodastream machine and 4 bottles of “SweetLeaf” liquid Stevia (sugarless) flavourings.
Value $255, cost $80 (looking for a quick sale)
When I was diagnosed a Diabetic, a friend suggest I buy these sugar-free Soda Stream flavourings to replace my habit of drinking Classic Coke, etc. Stevia is not sugar, it is a sugar substitute made from a South American leaf. It has 0 calories.
I only opened the Vanilla Cream flavouring and tried it once – the taste was fine, but in the months following my diagnosis I had given up my desire for fizzy drinks. Three flavour bottles are still sealed.
The Sweetleaf SUGARLESS flavouring was US$15 a bottle (NZ$23)
The Sodastream machine was $159, but I bought it on sale for $119
Also comes with a quilted cotton “tea cozy” cover
The pond could cost 3 million on front page of today's Mail.Green Meadows was a similar original estimate and ended up over double.Can we take the gamble? For that amount of money a smaller purpose built facility for the modellers perhaps could be built at Saxtons or where ever and the original pond left as it is.Fill it with carp and other algae and weed eating fish which are allowed in NZ .Could be quite an attraction for taking kids fishing and also another drawcard for Tahuna . Birds and other wildlife would probably access the area once a food source was available.Thinking out loud .. what do think Mr NCC..
