She was my godmother, who I was named after, and I just found out she had a record!

I assume there wouldn't have been many pressings, but I'm wondering if someone may have an old dusty copy somewhere!"

Biking on footpaths

"I'm wondering whether there may be others as annoyed as me by the increasing numbers of adult cyclists blithely riding on suburban footpaths around Auckland?" writes Brian McDonnell.


"On two occasions on the weekend I had a cyclist come barrelling towards me as I was walking: one in Surrey Cres, the other in the Jervois Rd shops.

"When I upbraided the latter about riding on the footpath and suggesting he stick to the road, he gave me an entitled grin and said he was certain he was allowed to do so.

"I told him to check the Road Code for himself, but want to share the relevant sentence here for him and any other riders labouring under the same misapprehension: 'You are only allowed to ride on the footpath if you are delivering newspapers or mail, or you are riding a small wheeled recreational device that has a wheel diameter of less than 335 millimetres (typically tricycles or small children's bicycles)'.

"So, folks, please obey this law and try not to behave like a drongo."

"New eatery on Victoria St West doesn't sound that appealing," writes Peter.
