Have you seen the tiles on the Hundertwasser Art Centre?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangārei residents have had their first peak of the exterior of the Hundertwasser Art Centre, with the protective shrink wrap coming down on one side on Friday. The tilers have had to unlearn everything they know about straight lines and patterns, to create something more in-keeping with nature.

Mum has now retired from the market but invites any of you who would still like to buy her plants to go and see her at 10 Arcus Street Raumunga on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from 9am to 4pm each of those days. She still has a great range of healthy, hardened off plants just as she had at the market, and a variety shrubs.

Scammer surpise

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

This is a new one, to me. I actually got an economy air mail envelope in my letterbox. And inside I found a letter (fairly obviously photocopied or printed on a printer running low on red ink) that purported that some relative I've never heard of has left 8.6 million pound in a bank account in… View moreThis is a new one, to me. I actually got an economy air mail envelope in my letterbox. And inside I found a letter (fairly obviously photocopied or printed on a printer running low on red ink) that purported that some relative I've never heard of has left 8.6 million pound in a bank account in London and would I like help getting this money into a 'safe' bank account.

LOL.
Nigerian Scam artists supporting the post office, who would've thunk!
But, I cannot pretend I read this missive with a big grin on my face and my wife and I got a good chuckle out of it.
