Just checking, who knows this?

Eva from The Brook

As a slightly scared lady (always wanted to be a lady! ;) ) cyclist, I would be interested in finding out something.
How how many of you know the expression "Sail before Steam", and how do you understand it?
Thank you.

House bricks

Sean from Toi Toi - Washington Valley

I need four house bricks to repair a hole in the wall of my house. They are proving hard to find... 230x75mm or close. Colour is not an issue - not compared to the hole anyway ;-)

Do you know someone who's had to wait a months to sit their restricted licence?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Students, refugees and people who rely on a licence for their jobs are having to travel hundreds of kilometres to sit their restricted licence, or wait months in their home town. Do you know someone who has experienced the challenges of locking in their practical test? Since the story was published, driving instructor Kevin Bannan says more test times have been opened up in April.

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
