Geoff and Sarah have been informed of our horror night/morning (29.30/12/2019) where Two dogs roamed and mauled Four fur babies. Both are pet owners and would have liked better results for the families of the cats.
Ibanez is still missed and familiar noises are still heard, his gravestone is under the trees, one of his many watch possies. He is only one of many animals, not just cats but rabbits, gineua pigs and even lambs that get attacked and no justice. All animals should have the right to be on their own property and not attacked. Animal control should collect evidence but they don't. If you have a suggestion on how improvements can be made then please go ahead only comments will be forwarded no names. If you think otherwise then let us know too.
I know where the dogs are. There is no gate and dog is visible from road. Animal Control have said no dogs live there. The dog that lives at this place barks at everything even if you stand across the road. The night Ibanez was attacked and killed there was no barking.

Offering a peek behind the curtain, Ryman have released behind the scenes footage from their recent film. Showcasing their passion for life, Ryman residents from New Zealand and Australia feature in the film. Let’s meet the stars.

“If I hear music, I just want to dance – body seems to just move!” says dancer Audrey, 84. Poet Brian, 86, says “Poetry helps me to question and understand the meaning of life”, followed by a witty “– haven’t worked out what it means yet”.

As their residents blaze their own trails, Ryman matches that pioneering spirit. “Ryman villages offer living choices to suit everyone so that you can live the way you want.

Gone are the days of getting one qualification out of school to see you through your working life. Now, upskilling, online courses and on-the-job training are all part of making your way up the career ladder. 

We want to talk to people who have completed micro-credentials, bitesize qualifications for specific skills. 

Perhaps you've pieced together a full qualification by doing online courses, or maybe you've taken a workshop rather than investing in a six-month course. We'd love to hear from you - email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz

Here at Curtain Clean we are big advocates of sustainability. Clean, re-use, recycle!


Help us reduce waste and have fun doing it with our little tutorial on how to turn a T-shirt into a re-usable bag.

You’ll need:
• Old t-shirt – The thicker the fabric, the sturdier the bag
• Sharp scissors, preferably fabric scissors
• Washable marker (optional)


Step 1: Cut the sleeves off so it resembles a singlet.


Step 2: Cut the neckline area into a circle or oval – these will become our handles. Trace a bowl to get a perfectly round circle.


Step 3: Turn the t-shirt inside out. Determine where you want the bottom of the bag to be and trace a line across. Keep in mind that depending on the fabric used, your tote is likely stretch and become longer when it’s filled with stuff.


Step 4: Cut slits from the bottom of the shirt up to the line marking the bottom of your bag. Keep the slits small to prevent large gaps in the bottom of the bag. You’ll want to cut both the front and back layers together because they need to match up for the next step.


Step 5: Tie the front and back fringe together in knots and turn the shirt right side out. For extra embellishments, tie the straps (handles) in knots, or tie bits of t-shirt scrap to the top.
P.S. We'd love to see your creations!!

I have received what could only be described harassment by phone from people who say that are from a company called Global Logic. Do not talk with them and most certainly do NOT type anything into your computer under their instruction. They do have what looks to be a legitimate web page, but it is not. They rang more than 20 times in the space of about 40 minutes. As soon as I hung up they phoned back. Report this behaviour to netsafe, and phone the police who tried to tell me that no crime had been committed in this case as I didn't do as they had asked, but I reminded them that harassment is a crime and therefore I expect it to be treated as such. Good luck with this everyone, and stand strong.
