    According to reports, takeaways have been popular - I saw pictures of people queueing for coffee in Point Chevalier.

    There’s a new KFC being built just a few miles away, but with the shortage of chicken and it being close to the coast, it might be a KFS, Kentucky Fried Seagull.

    I'm sure NZ has a few offshore islands that need clearing of cats for the wildlife's sake - perfect opportunity for Unlucky Fried Kitten to move in.

    They were gang members, bringing the drug takings from Hamilton, and a snack for the boss. The amount was $NZ100,000.

    To get through the border around Auckland, you have to be an essential worker, with proof of a legitimate purpose and of a negative covid test in the previous 7 days.

    They could ask Kate to source some Guga.
    So they could not provide the negative test reports?:rolleyes:

    The police saw them speeding on a side road - they were caught before they reached the checkpoint.

    Hopefully not resulting in something similar to the Ch4 drama, 'Help'?

    Covid-19: New allergic reactions to hair dye reported

    Hairdressers in parts of the UK are reporting clients having new allergic reactions, like rashes and burns, to hair dye after contracting coronavirus.

    Scientists at Imperial College London are now researching how the disease could be reprogramming our immune system, in a similar way to other illnesses.

    The trade body that represents hairdressers and beauticians is warning professionals to carry out additional patch tests to avoid facing legal action.

    Gemma suffered a reaction to a patch test despite using the same hair dye for years. She had also recovered from a previous Covid infection. Her salon says it has seen four clients with the same issue since it began compulsory patch tests for all clients.
