Alpine Water & Bling

I haven't posted for a few weeks while filtering was on hold to attend the National Dragon Boating Champs in the Sth Island. And I can confirm the 3 Bay Teams did us proud bringing home Gold medals and trophys galore.

While there, I was fortunate to walk the Routeburn Track in great weather and stunning vistas. My trusty water bottle could be filled from numerous alpine streams along the way... One of the few places left in NZ where the water isn't contaminated and treated. Simply gorgeous. All back to work now.

If you want to get the Best from your water by taking the Worst out of it, then call me. I've many options to suit your needs and budget.

We had already a few lovely offers for Fijoas. Thank you all. Probably enough for now. Still looking for Apples, windfalls ok, any condition.

Peter from Pyes Pa

Hi everyone. If you have too many Fijoas for your own use, we are doing some preserving so looking for buckets full, I will pick up. Looking also for free Apples to help with some fermenting. If you can help us would be great.

To help maintain the environment we enjoy, in 2009 Tauranga City Council (TCC) adopted a formal policy entitled “Use of Toxic Agrichemicals for Vegetation Management”.

This policy instigated the formation of the Toxic Agrichemicals Advisory Forum (TAAF) which is a forum of interested and knowledgeable people who can assist the TCC in their determination of acceptable toxic agrichemicals and their circumstances of use on council maintained land.

TAAF invites a mix of people with training, skills, practical knowledge
and/or demonstrated interest in environmental issues, particularly use of agrichemicals to participate in forum deliberations.

Formal qualifications are advantageous but not an essential requirement. Membership is voluntary and is not remunerated.

Meetings are held monthly

Blind and Curtain Cord Safety for protecting children

Owner from Curtain Clean BOP Ltd

Take these four simple steps to ensure that blind and curtain cords/chains are out of reach of children, particularly from children under six.

1. Check your blind and curtain cords
• Check for loose or looped cords that your child can reach from the floor or by climbing on furniture.
• Immediately tie cords out of reach and move away any furniture children might climb on to reach them.

• Do this anywhere you are staying, including on holiday.

2. Secure your cords out of reach
• Buy cleats or tensioning devices for securing cords from a hardware store or curtain and blind shop.
• Use screws to fix each cleat or tensioning device in a place that is out of reach of children.

• Never secure these devices with materials that may fail when a load is placed on them, such as double-sided tape or glue.
• If you cannot fix your unsafe cords and chains out of reach yourself, get a reliable tradesperson to do it for you. If you are renting your home, seek help from your landlord or agent.

3. Choose safe blinds and curtains. Buy new curtains and blinds which:
• comply with the national mandatory standard
• have warning labels to remind you of dangers to children
• provide a way to secure cords/chains so there are no loops or strands that children can reach, or

• operate without exposed cords/chains.

4. Keep children away from all cords/chains
• Move anything a young child can sit in, stand or climb on (like cots, highchairs, beds, sofas, tables, chairs and bookshelves) away from cords/ chains—even those tied around a cleat, as your child may be able to untie them.
• Do not let children play near cords/chains they can reach.
• Never leave children alone in a room with cords/chains they can reach.

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

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.
