International planes still flying into New Zealand ...WHY??πŸ›«πŸ›¬

Fiona from Henderson

Would someone out there be able to tell me why are we (New Zealand) still allowing planes from China, Malaysia, Hong Hong, Honolulu, Santiago, Doha & even Fiji to land here in this lockdown?
I thought that the extended timeframe for these airlines was last Friday.
It is still happening daily.
Before anyone says it's only Air New Zealand flying anywhere or even maybe they are cargo flights, they're not.
The various airlines flying in or out are:
China Eastern Airlines
China Southern Airlines
Shanghai Airlines
Malaysia Airlines
Fiji Airways
Polynesian
Cathay Pacific
LATAM Airlines
Qatar Airways
Qantas
I do know that Swiss Air and Lufthansa (along with Austrian Airlines later in the week) are here for a 'mercy dash' to remove their citizens via Auckland & Christchurch, so they don't count.

Greedy WatercareπŸšΏπŸ˜’

Fiona from Henderson

Well, the May water bill has landed in our email.
Each month we analyse it to see where or if we can save money and/or water.
What we noticed this month was the last time we got an actual reading was way back in February. The following 3 months have been estimated.
All of the estimated readings were based from our summer usage, when we were watering our gardens.
So, my questions are, "At what point does our usage and payments level out? Will they be paying us for the month of June & July, especially as we have significantly been reducing our water usage over the last few months?"
I understand that lockdown was the reason for the first 2 months estimated readings, however May should've been an actual reading.
It really comes across as if Watercare are bleeding us financially dry, and all the while we are all doing our best to reduce and save.

Interactive map shows where Auckland's new speed limits will be

Fiona from Henderson

Wow, my old neighbourhood is going to be 30km/h very soon.
That's going to put a crimp into the speed racers, that and those damn awful speed humps!
Maybe we should start looking for a horse or 2 along with grazing grounds & stables - all very eco friendly πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
From June 30 there will be lower speed limits in Te Atatu South as well Auckland's CBD - most speed limits will go down from 50km/h to 30km/h.
Here is the interactive map: atgis.maps.arcgis.com...
