Peanuts and cupcakes. Vintage and new. Smells good, feels good, tastes good. It is all at the  at the University of Canterbury. A handful of retailers from the Arts Centre, the Christchurch CBD and High Street who lost access to their shops after the February earthquake have found a new home. Well, a new home once a week, mid-week at least!

So apparently, today was day... not in a 'make a donation' kinda way but in a 'do something nice' for a Cantab person or business kinda way. It sounded like a lovely idea at the time, I'm sure... but did anything actually happen because of it? I saw nuthin' much different because of it although I did wear my aftersocks all day, with short trousers too so you could see them. Made a few people smile anyway :) Although that could have just been the sight of someone wearing ...

Wednesday, 13 July 2011 10:04 p.m. by KrisV

No... nothing as dire or dramatic as shifting. Well, not yet anyway. Tonight I'm packing a suitcase 'cos tomorrow me & my darling are off for a break. 10 days rest from Shakeytown and all its broken bits.

I never used to be this happy about leaving my hometown. Now that I think about it, that's a pretty sad development but one that is perhaps unavoidable - certainly understandable - given the circumstances.

As well as being instant geotech and seismic experts, many Shakeytown citizens are now also becoming all too familiar with the intricacies of insurance fine print. First it was the who found that business interruption insurance didn't cover. The insurance companies' argument was, it wasn't the earthquake that was preventing businesses from trading, it was the cordon - introduced by Civil Defense and now maintained by CERA - and wasn't covered under the policy.

Now there& ...

I'm not going to write much about my recent break from Shakeytown 'cos that's not really what this blog is for... however there was one subject that I promised myself would not slide by without a decent rant.

You would think that Auckland, being the land of latte-lovers, would be an ideal place for a random coffee jaunt of a weekend, n'est pas? Think again. Allow me to elucidate on the Day of Disappointing Coffee (DoDC).

A City on a New Plate

A City on a New Plate

Monday, 4 July 2011 2:25 p.m. by Hardy Popular

There are thousands of anxious and worried people in and associated with the city of Christchurch and sadly many of them are moving away. If they could be given some assurance that the foundation on which the city would be built could be stabilised then my proposal may well put people's minds at rest. It won't stop crustal movement but their property will be sitting on a new man made plate, resting on top of nature’s fractured one. If there is movement in one place, it will be abso ...

When we read in the paper that AMI was going to be contacting all their Chch customers, we just knew that they would ring while we were on holiday. Sure enough, less than an hour after arriving in Auckland, we got a phone call. As we were right in the middle of doing all the paperwork for the campervan we're hiring (oh, how middle-aged is that!), we decided to call the insurance company back the next day.

Christchurch Earthquake FAQ from Brendon Burns

Christchurch Earthquake FAQ from Brendon Burns

Friday, 1 July 2011 10:07 a.m. by benyoung Popular

Brendon Burns - Over the past week, I’ve attended numerous public and cottage meetings about last week’s announcements. Thank you to those who turned up or hosted such meetings. Whether you are Red, Green, Orange or even White-zoned, there are many questions left unanswered. I still say people deserved to know what the fate of their land was. At least 5000 households, including perhaps 1000 in Avonside and Richmond in my electorate, now know that they cannot rebuild. But given the wa ...
