Asthma suffers….


its that time of year again that you love? :-)

If look centre of photo just above the tree line you’ll instantly recognise what I’m talking about, and if you haven’t noticed any bodily reactions yet, the yellow remnants already there on your windscreens are a dead giveaway.

Main Rd Stoke drivers….

please be aware that Transport NZ (I’m guessing)

40k now

have installed some new “Kidsafe” signs just before and after Stoke Primary School. Please drive safely. First sign is as pictured just before Ranui when you are heading south, and the other sign, obviously coming the other way on Main Rd, is not too far from the Polstead Rd / Main Rd intersection.

NOTE: So during school arrival / leaving times the main speed limit will drop to 40km/h.

And the EXTRA good news…they appear to be solar powered, so once they are paid for – then “surely….” that’ll be it til “next time……???

1,2,4,8 dig in, don’t wait…

That sure seeming to be the feeling on this auspicious day


the 3rd August (UK time) will go down in NZ Olympic rowing history as a very special one at that.


Even though Nelson started very untypically today,……..


….it certainly appeared as if there was a new found vigour to their strokes.
