Our eco-man Malcolm Rands has been thinking about New Year resolutions you can actually keep that will help our planet:
Each New Year many of us make grand resolutions for the coming year. What if these resolutions were actually climate friendly actions that were easy to keep?
It’s not all about sacrifice
Sometimes we look at the activists that are doing extreme and energy draining activities and although these people need to be appla...

Since we started summer (solstice on the longest day of 21st of December, last year) we’ve basically “turned the corner”. 
The “longest day” was not really the longest day here in Christchurch (but a few days later), but the point is that from now on our days are getting shorter – very slowly. Once we get to mid-to-late February the shortening will speed up and reach its fastest downhill trend of the year… 
This website shows that in...

Ordering free COVID tests was a breeze

The US Government is offering four free at-home COVID tests to each residence and ordering them was super simple - I'd probably describe it as one of the best interactions I've ever had with a government service. To make it happen they tapped the resources of the US Postal Service. The page was effectively a checkout page, with the product already selected, the price very clearly shown ...

The weather has been wonderfully settled for months – I’ll remember it as cloudless blue skies and 27 every day, regardless of what weather forecasters predicted, and even when it wasn’t.
Traveling around the North Island over the Christmas and New Year, I noticed a relaxed Kiwi summer vibe. Maybe it was the exhilaration of being able to leave home towns and visit family and friends, maybe it was the relief another difficult year ha...

New Year is a common trigger for relationships to end.  

Three things to consider:

1. We tend to be attracted to similar people,  people who break up tend to change the person not the problems.  

2. Where there are communication problems we often misinterpret our partners intentions.  

3. If we have kids we have a relationship with our partner for the rest of our life, how we separate matters.

Looking forward to Christmas? Why not dive into the garden with a glass of Campari/Soda, grab a hammock and through squinted eye-lids observe the typical summer features in the bug department 
Close your eyes slightly and look in the direction of the sun. Especially when the late afternoon sun is lower in the sky and temps are up. Millions of tiny insects fly around.

Mumm Marlborough NV Brut Prestige $35
Why I chose it:
- Thought I’d go out with a bang on my last pick for 2021
- A collaboration between Mumm Champagne and Pernod Ricard NZ. A blend of 46% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay and 9% Pinot Meunier.
- Think of it as a Kiwi wine with a slight French accent
- Open carefully by covering the cork with a napkin as you loosen the wire. Best to hold the bottle at 45 degrees.
What does it taste like?
