Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Some supernatural help has been hired in the hope customers and staff at the Resene shop in Cambridge will one day be able to see their favourite furry face again.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.

“Timmy is such an icon around Cambridge, everyone knows him as the Resene cat,” Gloria said.

An extra-ordinary election leaflet.

Tel from Central Whangarei

I was handed an election leaflet to-day that claimed it was from "Advance NZ". The leaflet said it was authorised by J Ross, xxx Botany Road, Botany. (I have redacted the house number.)

The leaflet said it was authorised by J Ross, xxx Botany Road, Botany. (I have redacted the house number.) This leaflet made some extra-ordinary claims. I have made this a public post in case it was an attempt to traduce "Advance NZ". If the document is not genuine then Advance NZ can say so and I will take it to the Police.


The leaflet was stuck on car windscreens in our local Mitre 10 car park with neither permission nor knowledge by Mitre 10.


The leaflet claims that COVID-19 is no more dangerous than Seasonal Flu and decries Lockdowns and Mask Wearing. It says that WHO states that lockdowns do not work. The party worker who gave me a leaflet said that World-wide there were very few deaths from COVID-19. Instead what has happened is that Governments have simply re-labelled many deaths for political reasons.


Thank goodness these people have no part in Government.

Have you seen the tiles on the Hundertwasser Art Centre?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangārei residents have had their first peak of the exterior of the Hundertwasser Art Centre, with the protective shrink wrap coming down on one side on Friday. The tilers have had to unlearn everything they know about straight lines and patterns, to create something more in-keeping with nature.

Scammer surpise

I actually got an economy air mail envelope in my letterbox. And inside I found a letter (fairly obviously photocopied or printed on a printer running low on red ink) that purported that some relative I've never heard of has left 8.6 million pound in a bank account in London and would I like help getting this money into a 'safe' bank account.

LOL.
Nigerian Scam artists supporting the post office, who would've thunk!
But, I cannot pretend I read this missive with a big grin on my face and my wife and I got a good chuckle out of it.
