Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

My Dog

Tracey from Atawhai

Last night around 9pm On Dodson valley road my best dog in tis world was ran over and killed. The truck didn’t stop I’m not sure if he knew he done it or not. I really want to thank the young man on his scooter who stoped and stayed with me while I sat in the middle of the road trying to breath life back in to my baby. I hope you see this message and know you were appreciated. Also the other people who came out of their homes to offer help. I am completely shattered and heartbroken atm but I just wanted to say thankyou

Nelson City Council - sea level rise

Cally from Atawhai

Nelson City Council has obviously decided that sea level rise is less of a problem than it was, as they have removed my house inundation notice from the LIM report that they issued last November. They were using a 2m rise for all their planning. However it has dropped to 1.5m.

I rather think this has more to do in wanting to push through a $44M state of the art, "better than Te Papa", Vanity, Eco Building Project on the river front, creating lots of waste and using "mitigation" to stop the sea coming in, rather than hoping the sea will stop rising!
