    North Lakes / Mango Hill vs Springfield Lakes (Brisbane)

    Hi, I don’t know Mango Hill or Springfield Lakes for living. We visit both areas often enough. If you like the beach then the nicest one will be Redcliffe. If you like hustle and bustle, traffic and everything on your doorstep then again I think it would be Mango Hill, although it didnt have an excellent reputation I think with all the new buildings in North Lakes that probably vanished. ‘For me I like a quieter pace and much prefer around Springfield Lakes, you also have Augustine Lakes. You still have the shopping centre Orion which is lovely, the train to the city, etc. Or if you travelled another 20/30 minutes down the M2 you could probably have a 4 bed home on acreage for around $350k.
  5. I would like to introduce you all to @Anthony from Moneycorp Our new contact for Moneycorp. ‘If anyone has any questions about currency transfers or needs help with their account please feel free to let Anthony know.
  6. I would like to apologise to the membership for my delayed announcement. As I’m sure most of you are aware John got married and started a new family and rather than all of us causing him sleepless nights it will be night time feeds and changing nappies taking our place. John has been the face of Moneycorp on the forum for many years, more than I can remember and I know lots of us have had the pleasure in meeting with him in person at the Pomsinoz Meet Ups which helped secure that trust and care he always showed out members. I don’t know if you will read this, but John, you were a great asset to Moneycorp and we all wish you well for the future. I know we have had a few members contact us about Johns account. To stop any confusion this account will now be closed and I will introduce your new contact on a separate post. I have heard he is excellent at his job and is very keen to get to know you all.

    Melton Mowbray Pie in Perth

    Please send it @Johndoe although if the pork all needs to be used in the same batch we may struggle unless the pie freezes fine as one that size would last me a year.

    Hubby loves the Cornish pasty, for me it was Pork Pie and Steak and Kidney Pudding.

    Can you help the owner of the forum - My Mum

    You both know how I feel about this and yes as admin, I can also post on locked threads. However, I do realise the intentions and I would like to thank everyone for all your support these last few years. it wasn’t until I actually took a step back I could see it from an outsiders point of view. My family have had a part time Mum/wife and also as members I haven’t supported you all like I should be doing. ‘I have some work to do in the next couple of days on the forum, so I should be around but I think myself and @ali calculated my current word count per minute is one, although I think I may have improved since then. Then editing on top. So I won’t be very active until we can get on top of this swelling If I don’t get around to contacting you all privately, I would like to wish you all a Wonderful Christmas and hope that 2019 brings you lots of joy and happiness. Ps I believe @Squarepants has been trying to thank you all but I keep forgetting he can’t post on locked posts.

    @Cerberus1 has just sent me this Kev as I said I’d love a nibble of a pork pie and my son said I’ll bake you one, he then asked me how, and I’ve honestly no idea. Would you please mind sharing the recipe either here or via pm sometime. Or he is on here @Squarepants

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Just so you all know. Firstly my grammar will be rubbish as I’m in hospital again for nearly 4 weeks with meningitis and haven’t been able to cope with anything. However, thisnthread has been brought to my attention numerous times tonight with the highest number of reported posts in the last year which is crazy. So a couple of things and I will be short and sweet. Myself and Calngary have deleted a number of posts, probably not enough but a few to get back on track. Please all refresh yourself with the forum rules, it explains all the reasons there for infractions, bans etc. One reason is discussing moderator action on the open forum. ‘Personal attacks are just that “personal” to another member, yes you can disagree with their views but you can’t resort to name calling. Grammar Nazis - I will not tolerate and I’ve personally seen how my own style has deteriorated. People often write totally different on social media to what they would in a business meeting and I know a number of our regular members occupations would actually shock you if you knew the real them. Now some of you may have had a warning tonight or even had a suspension so you can try it out. I can’t stay on here all night watching you pull each other apart. i also suggest a couple of you may want to apologise to @calNgary Now I may not be online for a few more days so please try and be good.

    Not a picture but I thought it very apt of today’s world and life on social media.

    Mortgage Reprosessions

    Unfortunately it’s not like the UK in that respect. I remember we use to look at repossessions, there were also sites where the government would sell off old railway stations, water board properties, etc. In fact we once came close to purchasing an old pub that the brewery no longer wanted. Do them sites still exist?
  15. If you are wanting to or are currently renting a property in Queensland, the Queensland Government is opening the door to renting reform, and invites you to share your ideas about renting in Queensland. You can have your say by completing a short online survey or by visiting a community consultation event. Your feedback will help inform a review of the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008, and help shape the future of renting in Queensland, ensuring better protection for tenants and property owners. The Open Doors to Renting Reform consultation is being undertaken by the Department of Housing and Public Works, together with the Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA). This is your chance to comment on a wide range of topics related to renting, such as looking for a property, finding tenants, bond payments, rent payments and increases, renting with pets, requesting or organising maintenance and repairs, breaking leases and more. The Queensland Government is casting the net wide to listen to the challenges and opportunities with renting, and understand the issues across the state throughout the ‘looking, leasing, living, leaving’ rental cycle. Have your say about renting in Queensland by completing the online survey https://www.yoursayhpw.engagementhq.com/rentinginqld or visit the website for information on community consultation booths.
