It can often be said….

….that I, like many others, aren’t always big fans of “big business”..


but at times you do just have to pat them on their back…..

…..for the efforts they do go to, to support locals.

And the extra effort, read design logo / spend money on local adds to promote same that go with it. Kudos or “kred” to Nelson supermarket, Fresh Choice and its owner….aka…“the grocer” for highlighting the “within 200kms of here” campaign and its enlightening of the local buying populace,

Oh and BTW, back in 2009 this supermarket was the same one that was voted to have on its shelves the most Fair Trade items too.

That’s my 2 cents worth.

Where was Nelson, yesterday….

Nsnmail 17th July

wowsers …… what a fog layer we had, so much so that the local paper, The Nelson Mail, even got to featuring it on todays front page


and at our “Branch/Office of the Month” breakfast this morning, I discovered
