A helmet may be one of the best investments you can ever make

Grant Neighbourly Lead from Johnsonville

The attached image is what is left of my sons' helmet after he came off his bike yesterday. It doesn't take much to imagine what would have happened if his head had been unprotected. As it was he walked away with some grazed fingers and a slightly sore neck.

The attached image is what is left of my sons' helmet after he came off his bike yesterday. It doesn't take much to imagine what would have happened if his head had been unprotected. As it was he walked away with some grazed fingers and a slightly sore neck.
After this incident I can wholeheartedly recommend safety helmets as one of the best investments you can ever make.

New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.

New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.

We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.

ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.

Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Charlotte

"I was a stray mum with kittens before coming to the SPCA.
Here's what my foster mum has to say about me:

Charlotte is a sweet wee girl, gentle and friendly with kittenish spirit coming through from time to time. She was initially nervous in her new environment, but patience and gentle encouragement has seen her become playful and sociable.

She likes being patted but isn't too fussed on being picked up and held (although this is improving) and isn't a lap cat at the moment. She spends some of her time in other rooms around the house but mostly likes company and comes when called.

She is an early riser and when she wants something can be quite vocal. She loves playing with small toys and moving things and gets quite absorbed watching action programmes on tv. A warning though, she loves electrical cables. She is a well adapted and house trained cat, and surprisingly, given her underlying nervousness, isn't scared of the vacuum cleaner, however I don't think she will like a rowdy household."

Habaneros for sale (like chillies but much hotter)

Hi everyone,
My little 12 year-old sister and I have some more freshly-picked, pesticide-free habaneros off our bush that we would like to sell to earn some pocket money.

The $1 coin is for size reference, these habaneros are much bigger than chillies I have seen at the local supermarket retailing for $1:30 each (picture included indicating size relative to a $1 coin) and are really hot so you only need to cut up a small portion into food. Habaneros store well in the freezer so any leftover can be frozen until needed for up to a few months.

$1 each or 6 for $5.

I also have some frozen that we would still like to sell at a rate of 2 for $1.50.

Covid-19 safety precautions:
It is recommended that you rinse produce thoroughly with hot water.
See covid19.govt.nz....
