Are you prepared for Omicron?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

With experts predicting that numbers are about to rise rapidly we all need to be prepared.

A basic medical kit should include the following:
Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, a thermometer and re-hydration medicines like Hydralyte. Sore throat treatments such salt gargles, honey, or perhaps a local anesthetic lozenge or spray could also be useful.

Also think about having a plan as to how you get basics like bread and milk if you are isolating. Have you talked to neighbours about how you can help each other?

Butter Back On Menu

Michael from Trentham

At least in Upper Hutt, lovers of pure butter can resist resisting buying butter because it has expanded in price beyond their budget.

PaknSave, Upper Hutt this week and for the last two weeks has been selling one brand of 500g pure butter for $4.99 and another brand at $5.02.

With butter unlike some other dairy products, the brand seems to make little or no difference to me with taste and longevity than the more expensive brands.

I am temporarily at least, out of the market for semi-soft 500g pure butter because PaknSave, UH is selling them for over $10 and no doubt at other supermarkets even dearer.

Whilst on the subject of dairy - yesterday bought a 1kg block of cheese for under $10 from the same PaknSave.
