Now that summer has arrived, it is worth remembering that it is not a good idea to leave children in cars. The Automobile Association has issued a plea for people not to lock children and pets in cars in a warning that gets more-urgent as summer months set in.
The AA gets called out for about 760 call-outs for children locked in cars and 650 for pets every year.
On a 30C day, the temperature inside a vehicle can reach 39C in less than five minutes; in 30 minutes, it will be 49°C,”

Once they’re established, it’s almost impossible to remove them and the pests can squeeze the life out of our most precious rivers and lakes. We all need to do our bit to protect waterways by always checking, cleaning, then drying any equipment that comes into contact with the water, between every waterway, every time.

What's the noise disturbance like? Do you notice it?
Was your house cheaper than others in the area?
Is the easy access to transport the reason you bought there?

Hi again
The rescue has been a success. The avos - 'ugly', ground-kissed or clever enough to hide from the pickers - are on the road back to Wellington as we speak and will be available from tomorrow, 14 Dec until sold out.
Price is:
$2 each (the best)
$1.50 each (just babes)
$35 for 20 (for lovers or those with room in the fridge - cool fruit to slow ripening)
$55 for 40 (for serious lovers and those wanting to gift onto others who are lovers / or cafe owners).
Bulk buyers (20 or 40) can collect from 20 Farm Road, Northland. PM me to arrange collection day/time.
All others can be brought from Reef or Kyra on Karori Road, Glenmore St or Miramar, near the airport. We just need to arrange time but expect it to be 1-6pm.

Hi all avocado lovers
Two very keen 18-year-olds are off to Turlough Hill orchard, Katikati, this weekend to rescue the ‘ugly’ avos and bring them back to Wellington. They will be selling them from Mon next week. I’ll post more about where and when and how much but wanted to let you know they’re coming! They’re not perfect and will be a mix of sizes but are good fruit and will be well priced.
PM me if you want to know more or would like to order 20 or more. Otherwise, I’ll let you know where the Ute will be parked up once we have a plan!

Please share amongst your networks too.
