A not-for-profit initiative to turn the empty roofs of Auckland high rises into community gardens has begun.
The project, called Kai in the Sky, is the brainchild of 24-year-old Becky Umbers. Staff from local hospitality businesses, which are struggling because of the pandemic, will tend to the gardens and use the produce grown there for free. Would you tend to and use a roof top garden if they were open to the community?

Full disclosure : the Lauren in this situation is my first cousin.

www.sbs.com.au...

I was at her wedding in January, in Reporoa, NZ.

Her Australian husband returned to the UK to finish up his affairs (of the non-adulterous kind), booked to return to NZ later in March, and resume life as part of our family, and start their own family.

Then along came Covid, and now he is stuck in England and INZ will not allow him to return as he does not have a partnership visa, which Australian partners have never needed before, but now suddenly do. By the time you work out that you need one, you can't get one. There was a time in NZ where being legally married meant something, apparently not anymore.

If you think INZ is being a dick, please consider signing this petition by Oct 4 to support Lauren, our family, and anyone else who may be in this dire situation:

Thank you for listening.

Bowel cancer can strike at any age. Each year about 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die. That’s as many as breast and prostate cancer combined. But it is treatable – and beatable – if detected early enough. Check your symptoms

Handy Tip for Burnt Pots

Last night I put some veges on to cook, got distracted, and forgot to turn them down. The result was a burnt pot!

I remembered seeing a note about burnt pots in my mother's hand written recipe and helpful hints book, so I pulled the old book out and found it. It was simply to soak the pot in tea leaves. So I cleaned the burnt food out of the pot, put hot water in along with a teabag, and left to soak over night. I was pleasantly surprised as the pot cleaned up easily this morning. I thought it was worth sharing as most households have teabags readily on hand.
