I rang the Council, asked. There is a section easily findable on their site. I wrote a letter with photos and address no. Submitted about 10 trees that day in our Street . Pohutakawas and a gorgeous Erithina Crystagalli ((??) I got the other st lady to put her name beside mine.
All the other trees are still there. Council has changed tho. Not for the better really.
Some were private others were a primary school. Just because something is native does not mean it is safe.
get violent or simply more unpleasant.
I’ve experienced that. However I couldn’t see what I did without speaking out loud about ( I was already shocked that noone had spoken up before they got through to me ) their behaviour as soon as they got within earshot. Blood over the face and in the middle of Kings Cross did not a fun time make. I’d do it again in a flash.
Yes yes yes.
Cool. I thought it was too.
and well done China! Baby steps are going to get big quickly. Good news everyone!
He’s a man of many talents, that’s for sure. I’d like to see that setup next time you’re down in the Big Smoke.
I'll have to agree with you there Ben.He'll be in Aux next week. Drinks.His interwebs is down tonight or I would drag him in :)
Yup and with my super-basic number I can get star blobs, but not a whole sky-full like that!
Still great effort for your fantastic camera. My other did this one night whilst I drank wine in the sun lounger. They are great viewing of stars at night. I dont know other than, long exposure and he's rigged the telescope ,camera and modified a motor.
plus used his star tracker on the phone. Go figure eh ? :)
I do believe that all our conservation efforts, big or small, should be celebrated
I have a friend (dont look so surprised ;) who has taken it upon himself to berid one side of the Orakei Basin on the Ngapipi Rd side of vermon for the past years . He has made huge progress with possum rats and mice. its his pastime hobby :) he started in 2005. The Council is on board too but my friends efforts are admirable. Only a mouse today and he has thrown up this link Kepa Rd Project and has suggested they need volunteers
She seems to have … issues.
Yes but..... we can all have those days. Let's just hope she realises the stupidity of her statement and corrects herself for everyones benefit eh?
In total fairness to Sofie who I love, I was glad to get a response at all.
Aw shucks :))
I’m not quite sure what Sofie was saying there,
No I wasn't condoning harassment. That is something I have had a fair share of and have learnt to stick up for myself. I was taught that if you remain honest, you will always win the moral high ground. and I was trying to convey that Rugby has its share of idiots that will rear their heads anyway because the size of support in this game is big and statistically in a country as small as NZ we will get idiots. Unfortunately these types are all over the world. I was also happy Ireland won. I'm part Irish. If I had been there t'other night and been near Hannah I would have stuck up for her and given those people an earful. Honestly, and honestly I wouldn't have been there. I'm not a fan of that sport. The RWC was different though. I enjoyed the buzz in the city so got with the program for that with my friends. Plus, I have no problem ever being asked what I mean so feel free please.
