Electrical bikes  
Most car trips are less than 10 kilometers, and roads are clogged while bike lanes are expanding. But it seems too hard to grind your way to work through hilly New Zealand, and then to turn up to work all sweaty and needing a shower and change of clothing.   Bikes used to be just considered just fun, recreational, mucking around with the kids or partner on the weekend, and for some fitness/sport.  But with electri...

Diseases in the garden 
Maybe now’s a good time to chat about diseases and disorders in the garden. Coming out of winter, some plants have had a bit of a struggle, but the warmer temperatures will stimulate rapid growth. Rapid growth often makes plants more vulnerable to infections. 
Stuff I’ve seen and heard-of recently; some are tricky: 
* Apricots (stone-fruit) with Bacterial Blast. This appears as a “blowtorch” effect on leaves, a...

More New Zealanders watched Tuesday night’s leaders’ debate than will likely watch or listen to any other-to-head contest in this year’s election. I didn’t think either candidate performed very well. But two things stood out for me: 
There was no blue sky thinking. The debate perfectly exposed Labour and National’s total lack of courageous policy when it comes to addressing some of our biggest issues. I’ve moaned at length about it ...

How’s your geography?
If I gave you a World map and thirty seconds to find the city of Terneuzen, would you be able to point it out? No cheating allowed. No index. Just thirty seconds on the clock. How would you fare?
What about if I told you Terneuzen is a city in Zeeland. The original Zeeland. The single least populated province in The Netherlands?
Sure, that might narrow things down a little... but how many of us honestly wouldn’t ...

Spring Planting   It’s a busy time – at 1:30am on the 23rd of September it is Spring! This means warmer soil temperatures, and in term germination rates increase.   1. Now’s the time to sow new lawns.  First: ensure weeds are removed or killed. Whether you do that with Hitman or Glyphosate is up to you, but honestly: if you are that enamoured by lawns, you might as well get rid of all the weeds before you sow the seeds. Some folk d...

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
