11. Back to the future

This month I had the chance to do an ‘about me’ session at work. This meant sending my sister to my parents’ house and my scrapbooks. (I’d been planning to get these photos myself on a planned visit to NZ in March 2020 but… you can guess why that didn’t happen). Seeing my younger self reminded me of a sense I’d had that we don’t really change that much, we just become the people that we always were. Enjoy this clipping from 1 November 1994.  

Vicky Halloween Winner

Picture of 9 year old Vicky Teinaki sitting outside her house, smiling with an inflatable pumpking and sweets. 

Vicky Teinaki of Whangarei is the winner of the Whangarei Leader's Pascall Halloween contest. Vicky, nine, is pictured with her prize pack, which includes an inflatable pumpkin, Halloween game, masks, decorations, party novelties and a huge pile of Pascall sweets. Vicky is a regular winner of colouring and art contests—she recently won movie tickets at the South of the Mall pavement drawing competition—and mum Cathy says Vicky is imaginative and really uses her creative ability. Consolation prizes went to Rochelle Russell of Ruakaka, Michael-Jon Heta of Otangarei, Anthony Wallis of Ruakaka, Zane Adams of Whangarei, and Anaru Civil of Kerikeri. The consolation prize winners can contact The Leader to collect their prize packs. Whangarei Leader 1 November 1994.

FInally, I went midly viral when I found out that I could create an html (and screen reader friendly) version of Google slides by changing the URL from /edit to /htmlpresent


Until next time,
