Start the new year with silent nights

Snorex

Summer is a great time to spend time away - but it's not so great when you have to share a tent or room with someone who snores. Stop the complaints from friends and family by getting fitted for a Snorex.

Summer is a great time to spend time away - but it's not so great when you have to share a tent or room with someone who snores. Stop the complaints from friends and family by getting fitted for a Snorex.

Snorex is a custom made anti-snoring device. Fitting over the top and bottom teeth and made of a soft plastic, the Snorex is discreet and easy to travel with - no bulky masks or machines. It works by holding the jaw forward, opening up the airway and stopping snoring. Made in Stokes Valley for 25 years, each Snorex is custom fitted for comfort and efficacy.

Being custom made it does take time to complete each Snorex, but booking a fitting in before Christmas means that in January you can start having years of snore-free nights.

For more information, or to check available dates for an appointment, go to www.snorex.co.nz or call 0800 766 739

This week's featured bird is the oystercatcher, courtesy of Simon Woolf.

"Pretty rapt to see a clutch of oystercatcher, chicks and their parents, on Wellington's coast tonight. The adult birds were back from last year, and have three young ones in tow.
The adult bird had just caught a worm and the competition was on, as to which bird would get a feed. The bird at the back is the runt, and was also the chick that was attacked by gulls.
It was also the chick that was not in any way defended by the parent birds, while the other two birds were well cared for. You certainly know which chick is the runt, when it runs only metres away from you, after being chased by a gull, and neither of the parent birds felt the inclination to attack me!
Life is cruel for a baby oystercatcher, however if you are the runt of the clutch, life is really hard!"

Caregiver by day and stock car racer on weekends

Bupa Fergusson Retirement Village

The 18 year old became a caregiver at Bupa Gladys Mary Care Home in Napier just five months ago, after completing the Health and Wellbeing course at Eastern Institute of Technology.

“I just enjoy looking after and talking to older people. It’s a wonderful feeling to give back to those who have led amazing lives.”

The Hawke’s Bay born Swift began racing just two years ago after becoming interested in the sport when her older brother purchased a stock car himself.

“It’s a real thrill going super fast and I also like the track atmosphere on race night, nothing beats it. You also make a lot of awesome friends in the sport too.”

With the support of her family, Lauren has chalked up two wins in a stock car and five wins in the mini stock category. She’s also only ever had one major crash in a stock car back when she was starting out. Now with her own pink stock car, Lauren’s racing most weekends and says the sport and caregiving demand different skills from her.

“With caregiving I need to be really caring, understanding and patient. When I’m racing I’m aiming for consistency, fearlessness and to be my absolute best at all times.”

With her future career plans of nursing on the horizon and the determination to keep racing as her fast paced hobby, Lauren has a busy few years ahead of her in caring and racing.
