The tuis in our area are also repetitive and very monotonous with only one note. From 4.30am to after 9.30pm: “toot. toot. toot. toot.” … “toot. toot. toot. toot.”… “toot. toot. toot. toot.” over and over and over nothing else. I adore the other song (warbling, whistling and coughing) tuis can do but we don’t hear that part, all we hear is one note, four times. Over and over and over. It is extremely annoying and stressful – I have to wear ear plugs otherwise it absolutely drives me nuts.

Comment on The miraculous powers of stinging nettle … by Tricia Curtis by Catharina Bellekom http://happyzine.co.nz/2011/12/06/the-miraculous-powers-of-stinging-nettle-by-tricia-curtis/comment-page-1/#comment-249337 Sun, 07 Aug 2016 02:30:11 +0000 http://happyzine.co.nz/?p=16924#comment-249337 I have been using the stinging nettle tea to make my Kombucha. It really is delicious and I drink a full glass of it before breakfast. I have done this for about three weeks and am noticing that I have less pain.
I also make ordinary tea with it. I would love to grow it but where can I find the plants? I live in Tauranga. Thank you

Comment on Top 10 Happy foods Number 4 – Kefir by Elena http://happyzine.co.nz/2012/10/31/top-10-happy-foods-number-4-kefir/comment-page-1/#comment-249331 Fri, 20 May 2016 19:26:40 +0000 http://happyzine.co.nz/?p=21547#comment-249331 A while ago there was no kefir in supermarkets and few heard about it. I really missed kefir when I come to New Zealand and didn’t know how it was made. Then I found out and got kefir grains and started making my own kefir.

I post milk kefir grains every week anywhere in New Zealand. I have been sharing/selling kefir grains for many years and I am happy to share my knowledge and experience and provide my support in case you need it. I grew up with kefir in Russia and know when the grains produce good kefir. Email lenartnz at gmail.com

But her very first statement was that our lifelong outlook on life was heavily dependent on our sense of “Security and Attachment” in the first four years of our lives. Ergo: if you want to have happy and healthy children, you must give them love and emotional nourishment when they are young.
