    Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    What do you think of hazer parley? There's not many hydrogen plays in Australia. Plus I don't buy penny shares, but it's one to watch.

    Project Man Cave

    MIL had the jab yesterday. I have been told mid February. It will soon be back to normal.
  3. I finish my couch to five K tomorrow. It's a good way to do it. I'm still slightly shy of 5 K. Need to increase my speed a little. I run with my eldest son. I've started on odd days again with my youngest, as he wants to get fit. So I'm running six days a week. Time to get some better shoes.

    It could be a good indication of people's appetite for risk.

    Sorry, I'm confused. Can you please explain the relevance?

    Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    Has anyone done any analysis to see whether bitcoin works as a barometer of risk @Parley. I was wondering if there was a delayed correlation between bitcoin movements and movements in the major markets and currencies. If there was it would prove quite useful to follow it's movements.
  7. We seem to be struggling to get stuff. Brother in law had a third of his Sainsbury's order not delivered, and Tesco's are rationing tinned soup. I'm guessing it's covid related. Anyone else having troubles?
  8. I haven't been able to get any knitting patterns, so I'm not exactly sure what I'm knitting, but it's blue. Very blue.

    Is it a good move financially?

    Most governments seem to be actively kindling inflation to lower their debt. We don't know if that will be successful, but it could cause interest rates to spike. If anyone is buying, I would lock in low rates for as long as you can.

    Pension remittance from UK

    I have a different question along with the same lines. If you are resident in Australia and drawing from a UK pension, how much can you draw before you pay tax? Also, I'm assuming that the amount you draw would affect Australian state pension? I'm assuming that if you are resident in Australia, you would pay no tax on UK pension withdrawal to the UK inland revenue? Also, if you are drawing a UK private pension, can you still contribute to sups if you were working in Australia? .
  11. Thinking of getting a home brew kit. Fancy brewing some wheat beers and some alcoholic ginger beer.

    What Book are you reading??

    I'm reading sandy toksviks Between the Stops. It is very funny in parts. For those who don't know her, she host's QI. She talks about the 90s alot. I often think of the nineties as being the same as today. But we have obviously progressed. Not for discussion on here as too political, but a very good read.

    A lot of it will depend on luck and how much money you shift with you. If you sell your UK home and shift a lot of cash, there are a lot of variables such as house prices and exchange rates that will move for or against you. If you leave your ppor in the UK, and sell the rental you would be hedging your bets. I wouldn't want to rent in Australia for four years, but it could be the safest option if you are definitely planning on returning. It is really hard to make a rental 'home'.
  14. We have a village group which is good for keeping up with what's happening locally. It's also good for buying and selling stuff locally. There's one from my old cycling club. I don't use it for much else. Twitter is just an opportunity to rant. I don't expect many tweets get read.
  15. I never had a mullet. I was more shaggy dog.
