That should actually go into the "something that makes me smile" thread, it shows that some publications still allow people to use witty headlines rather than the dumbed-down bland stuff that most publications use to make it Google-able. When was the last time you saw a "Headless body in topless bar" style headline?

With only one Bachelor and a number of Bachelorettes, good vibes are probably quite handy 😇

Well you'd need a poultice too if a glass vehicle smacked you in the face.

TVNZ star sells North Shore home for $3m

 

Take a look inside Renee Wright's beautifully renovated North Shore home.

 

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/tv-presenter-renee-wright-sells-north-shore-home-for-3-million/TV6Y5YDKVPDGKOYBRUJ3ICSZHU/

 

 

This isn't in Lifestyle, or Real Estate. This is top of the page news.

 

If there's any value in reading this, it's that you can have a look at what 3 million will get you on the Shore these days. Except that there are no photos - inside or outside of the property, in the article.

I've had about three of these types of letters from NZ post in the last 6 months - they''re just tracked letters to determine how good their delivery network is
