Chess. Our neighbours dog. Kept us awake for years while he was young. But a good guard dog and fondly remembered for his loyalty.
The ToeToe (Maori name) or Toi Toi is the largest native grass in New Zealand and is found throughout the country in swampy areas and coastlines. This plant has been widely used for medicinal purposes from stopping bleeding (in my case when I was a kid causing bleeding!) and stopping diarrhea. But its worth Googling (is that a word yet?) and check out this cool and humble plant we all take for granted

This is not an airfield!
Two gilders land "uninvited" on the park.
Skimming in over the houses they made good landings in the middle of the park. Lucky as this is precisely where cricket is played most days this time of year. But hey it was welcome entertainment for the locals. So its not all bad and no one was hurt.
