christchurch getting new street signs
The Christchurch City Council has put aside nearly $100,000 for four massive street signs, that will help people navigate the central city.
The signs necessity comes after the earthquakes resulting in a loss of several of the central city landmarks, which consequently is making it hard for pedestrians to find their way around. The signs will be installed as ‘Signal Towers’, that will provide map details to key locations as well as have space for advertising and solar-powered speakers to play music.
The towers are large structures, being 8m in total height and they are thought to have at least a lifespan of five years. It is hoped they will be ready to be installed by late October, right on time for the summer season.

Flavours of weird jelly - beans.

Have you ever thought of making your own flavoured jelly beans well some companies have and it’s getting weird :
Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans have taken inspiration from Harry Potter and have been making some really weird flavoured jelly beans have a look :
1. Black Pepper – Pepper can be a great seasoning for meals at dinner, but by itself the flavour isn’t so great!
2. Booger – Yes this one exists! Who wants to eat candy that tastes like something you’ve just picked out of your nose?!
3. Dirt – You have a backyard full of the stuff but you don’t find yourself outside having a dirt snack! So why would anyone want a dirt flavoured jelly bean?
4. Earthworm – You know those slimy, wriggling little worms that live in the dirt? They are a flavour of jelly bean!
5. Earwax – So gross!
6. Rotten Egg – It’s gross, it stinks and it certainly isn’t a taste you want in your mouth!
7. Soap – Have your parents every threatened to wash your mouth out with soap when you say bad words? Well that punishment is now a jellybean flavour.
8. Vomit – This flavour is just way too weird! Who would want to eat candy that tastes like vomit?! That’s one way to make yourself sick for sure!
9. Stinky Socks – Ever felt like chewing on some old smelly socks that are lying in the laundry? If so, there is a jelly bean for that.
10. Lawn Clippings – Sure freshly cut grass smells pretty nice but the taste is a whole other story!
11. Toothpaste – We’ve always been told not to swallow toothpaste when brushing our teeth, so why would we want to eat a jelly bean which tastes like a big glob of toothpaste?
12. Canned Dog Food – There is a reason it is called dog food and it usually means we humans won’t enjoy it!
13. Baby Wipes  – Not sure we even want to know who came up with the idea for this flavour!
14. Skunk Spray – They say the only way to get rid of the stink of skunk spray is to bathe in a lot of tomato juice…your tongue is going to need a seriously long tomato juice bath after this flavour!
