An oxymoron has the effect of creating an impression, enhancing a concept, and even entertaining the reader. Can you think of another example of an oxymoron?

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Marge

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Marge, who was once a stray.

"I am a very talkative girl who is always up for a chat with my special human. I have a lot to say, especially when you pat me! I'm also very affectionate, with a particular affinity for head butts, pats, and being picked up. Being slow and steady in your interactions with me is really important, as I can get nervous and unsettled when approached too quickly or intensely.
I'm not your typical lap cat during the day, but at night I want nothing more than to be by your side, whether that's sleeping on you or near you. I love bean bags, and temptation treats (in moderation of course!). I'm not always down to play, but when I'm in the mood, I love ping pong balls and stringy toys!
I'm looking for a quiet home with indoor/outdoor access, and that gives me space and independence when I need it. I would prefer a home without other animals or children as my mood can sometimes change quickly if I feel threatened or am unsure of my surroundings."

Grow an extra row

Yates

While some Kiwis are enjoying home grown vegies, many are going without vegetables altogether.

This National Gardening Week we’re encouraging gardeners to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.

To help get your extra row underway Yates is lending a helping hand.

Just register online HERE between 1st and 25th October to receive a FREE packet of Yates Vegie Seeds.

Once you’ve grown your vegies to share (or if you have spare now) please visit HERE to find a list of the organisations that would welcome your donation of fresh homegrown vegies.

Why should I update my will?​

Public Trust

Just like times change, so should your will – so it’s important to keep it up to date. ​

You’ve built a life around the things and people that matter most. An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy and share it with the people you love. ​

If you last made a will back in the days of cassette tapes and telethons, it may be time for an update. ​
