We’re now at Alert Level 4. Stay home. Save lives.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Don’t worry. During that time you will still be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine, food, and other home supplies.

ALL THE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS
It’s incredibly important that we all follow the Level 4 plan, all the time. No exceptions. Because doing so will save lives.

A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE
We realise these are big changes. But these are challenging times.
If we don't all stay home, the whole country will need Level 4 restrictions for longer.

SUPPORT OUR EMERGENCY SERVICE PEOPLE
We owe it to the essential services. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else on the frontline. They’re working tirelessly to save lives. We should all do everything in our power to help them do this.
Thank you to each and every person, for doing their bit.

While you’re staying at home:

STAY CONNECTED
• Don’t let physical distance stop you staying connected. Keep in touch with people using video calls, phone calls, chat and texting.
• If you know people who are living alone, vulnerable, or separated from their loved ones, regularly check-in with them.

STAY WELL
• Continue to practice good hygiene – wash your hands with soap. Then dry.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
• Regularly clean surfaces in your home with disinfectant.
• Keep up regular physical exercise, and get some fresh air when possible. It’s good so long as this is solitary, or only with those you live with.

REACH OUT
If you need advice, support or help, try reaching out to friends, family, whānau or workmates.

WE'RE UPDATING INFORMATION CONSTANTLY
For all the latest advice, including answers to your health and financial questions, go to Covid19.govt.nz.

And remember: what you do now, will help protect all of us.

Good day everyone. For the readers amongst us and those who are interested in trying it while stuck at home. Your local library has lots of ebooks and audio books and digital magazines, newspapers and related content.
citylibrary.pncc.govt.nz...
Most require a library card and pin. If you've lost yours or it needs updating - direct message them on Facebook www.facebook.com... and they will hook you up. If you're in the wider Manawatu District Council area - reach out to Manawatu District Libraries via website or Facebook for the same help. Be patient and I'm sure someone will get back to you. Manawatu Libraries you can sign up for a digital only card, I don;t know if PN Library offers this sorry.

Another alternative is www.gutenberg.org...
This site has a lifetime of free ebooks all for the taking. These are much older books so out of copyright. No Lee Child there I'm sorry. But Dracula, Little Women, Sherlock Holmes, Huckleberry Finn and others are available.

Or check out sites like www.smashwords.com...
This is a site where authors can publish their own books. Many are for sale obviously but there are many free titles. Authors often give away the first book in a series free for example.

Most of this content can be viewed on a tablet, iPad, iPhone, Android phone or laptop/chromebook.

Stay home and stay safe everyone.

foldingathome.org...

The way it works is that Folding uses some of your PC's computing power and helps to simulate the folding or unfolding of proteins in order to map how they will react. This allows for labs to try and find ways to battle a wide range of diseases like COVID-19.

If you have a working PC, the net and no data cap then please pitch in by getting the program and let your PC help fight for the cures for a range of ailments.

looking to do large scale pruning jobs

My name is Jack and I am interested in any large scale pruning jobs in the Manawatu area that the average joe bloggs doesn’t have the ability or the equipment to do. I have many years of experience in the horticultural industry, especially when it comes down to pruning and tree care.

I provide following types of pruning:

* Deadwooding
* Crown and canopy thinning
* Crown canopy lifting
* Directional or formative pruning
* Vista pruning
* Crown reduction
* Pollarding

I currently work as a Nursery Technician for the Manawatu District Council, specialising in propagating native plants. I’ve decided to take advantage of my skills and knowledge in horticulture/arboriculture and use that for something to do during my downtime with a bit of extra pocket money on the side, hence me promoting my services.

NOTE: I am not interested in tree removals nor am I qualified or have the experience to do so. Cutting down trees can be very dangerous. I also do not have the equipment to undertake such jobs. I recommend hiring a professional for this type of work.

NOTE: I do have the proper climbing and safety equipment if a job requires me to ascend and work in a tree. I am not a qualified professional or had extensive training in this particular field of work but I do know how to use the equipment safely and confidently with the proper techniques involved. I’m not a risk taker so each job will be considered through a case by case basis.

If you are interested please message or call me and maybe include an image of what you would liked pruned and I can provide a quote. I can also do an onsite visit and provide a quote that way.

Phone: 0274358059
Email: j.felix.mckay@gmail.com

Cheers,

Jack.

Since all our shops have closed down and people still need help in the community with I.T. related issues. I figured it a good idea to have a place where we can collaborate together and anyone can ask an I.T related question.
