Pet of the Day: Snuffy and PK.

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Helen Moore, from Napier, sent us this sad but lovely story on Snuffy and PK.
"Snuffy, aged 17, a fierce defender of her property, a drama queen and dedicated rodent hunter. Died from kidney failure late 2018. PK, a massive show off and occasional thief, her sister, died aged 19 early in 2021, a week after my husband died. She comforted me beforehand even though she was unwell herself, snuggling up and licking the tears from my face."

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.
