  2. Day 10 of man flu . Had fun coughing all night. Glad I don't have any beekeeping to do at the moment.
  3. Today
  4. until

    Good looking a.m. in Whangarei. Yesterday people were complaining it was cold at 14 degrees. Had to laugh, Thursday was minus 1 with wind at home until midday. Back home tonight. If anyone wants to phone me and rock up by 9.30 a.m. today they can. See contact details & venue in the first post of this thread. Bring cash or evidence that you have done the bank transfer payment. Cheers. Maggie
  5. How politically incorrect is the name "Blackbutt"? Think a name change could be called for? e.g. Eskimo Pies...
  6. On my Facebook feed ... never mind about Manuka, and love the 35+ !!
  7. Up here they mainly use friesian sheep for milking - used to be a small stud over Waimauku way, but about five years ago, someone stole all the lambs soon after weening and pretty much beggared the plan.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Interesting .... lotsa damaged 70series bits listed on trade me yesterday ..... from Australia .
  10. Yep. Good advice. I didn’t organise the insurance so fingers crossed that’s what they did.
  11. I have a tracker fitted to all my vehicles. Relatively inexpensive if you choose a mongoose with a warehouse mobile SIM card. Also I know it doesn't help for now, but make sure your insurance gives you a guaranteed value. This can be mutually agreed each year. I always do this to exceed any outstanding finance plus the excess. So as an example a vehicle I buy for 30k is insured for 35k with that value agreed in a total loss scenario.
  12. Yep it’s insured. Will have to wait and see what the insurance company says about a payout. It was customised with larger tray and extra springs so we could take our honey boxes to extraction. we’re still trying to get hold of cctv footage that may identify the culprits. The police think it will be either in parts or tucked away on a bush block by now.
  13. thats just terrible you must be feeling sick to your stomach and shattered. is it insured.?
  14. No. She was In Auckland about to be loaded up to come home tomorrow. We’d just spent 1k getting her serviced for the new season. Wouldn’t happen here, the occasional car gets ‘borrowed’ but they usually return it the following day with a box of beers.
  15. was this on the island , where are they going to go ?
  16. Last week
  17. Thanks. I doubt we’ll see her again. It’s devastating.
  18. Feel for you... and really hope it shows up. We had one stolen couple yrs back along with a fair bit of gear.. not ideal. Good luck.

  21. Which people involved in the bee industry have been recognised with a Queen's Honours List award through the years? I've not looked it up, but think that Sir Edmund's recognition was for something else other than beekeeping, and not sure if that was mentioned in the award or not. Peter Molan is one that clearly comes to mind, with the recognition specific to his work with honey. Ivan Dickinson got an award, but I can't remember whether bees or beekeeping was mentioned. He was very involved in community matters. John Hartnell for both service to beekeeping and the community. But that's all that come to mind to me immediately. Who can we add to this list, then?
  22. Yes. Teresa managed to get right around on her travel scoot. Track is a bit rough. We could only manage to the water tank on the summit track
  23. Great, Thanks Adam. Have been working on it for a while now and been selling localy for a few years. How to see a good result out of going to an online store. Please spread the website http://www.thehoneybrew.com Thanks Oliver
  24. The mayor of Tauranga tv a few weeks ago saying that the CBD is dying because of Covid & hinting about some govt intervention. To me the reality is that the CBD died sometime ago. My understanding is locals refused to pay high parking fees and small shops started moving out. Then Farmers moved out to a suburb, and the shops that were left either followed or shut down. I like the Mount for shopping & I like the boardwalk. Have they reopened the Mt walk yet? The hot pool at Fernland is just one pool, v clean, surrounded by bush & has camping ground, and they give pensioner discount.
  25. Best cafe fight I saw was not over a table, but a newspaper. Lady was reading the paper, then got up to go order something else. While she was at the counter, another lady took the paper and starts reading it. First lady comes back and, no paper. She scopes around and sees the other lady reading it so goes up to her, tells her in a loud voice that she was incredibly rude, and demands the paper back. Second lady refuses. Loud standoff ensues, both ladies were obviously used to getting their own way and neither would back off. So the cafe owner intervenes, but no joy. So he says don't worry and he runs down the road to the dairy and buys another paper, comes in with it and gives it to the first lady. But can you believe, she refuses it, saying it's the principle of the thing. She will accept nothing less than the other lady handing back THAT paper. Both these ladies were unable to be seen to back down, in any way. I cannot imagine what life would be like for either of the husbands . Eventually the lady who "stole" the paper got up and left, the other lady took that paper, and the other paper sat idle on the table.
  26. I have spent a few days in the Mount, killing time while bikes getting looked at. It's completely unfathomable to me the attraction of a place where you have to fight for a cafe table.
  27. they reckon it's also the best milk for lattes, the drink of choice for hard working office types.
