    The state of Aussie politics..

    ................. and he was full of negativity about that other tosser Barnaby Joyce. Oh the hypocrisy. Bunch of idiots the lot of them.

    Immigration with 2 wives

    Getting back to the OP's situation ......... he should contact Raul Senise for all the information he needs. As far as the wife who is traded in by the western husband, I doubt very much she would give him the time of day never mind occasionally have sex with him.

    Australia’s Property Crash

    Was 2008 during the so called mining boom? I remember a docco on the TV about WA and it's extortionate rental costs and the big hike in house prices during the boom. It also showed some folk in their very expensive cars and over the top lifestyle. I wonder if they managed to keep hold of their cash and lifestyle.

    We are going to a hotel for Christmas lunch. There are 12 of us. Nice to just relax in good company and let someone else do the cooking.

    Totally agree with you about the state of some rentals. Put me off landlords and rental agents for the rest of my life. Once you manage to buy your own place you also feel far, far more settled. I would have thought that the appalling condition of some rentals would have greatly improved over the last 30 years or so since we rented but apparently not. ........................ and it's not as though some of those places are cheap to rent either.

    Trust in Police

    I've never had dealings with the police apart from an incident in WA and that's another story. We have never been mugged, robbed or broken into. No speeding fines etc etc. There have been incidents which made me angry and that involved the police in NSW and Vic - could be other states too - shooting mentally ill people who were waving a knife around. e.g. A Sydney woman was shot within 41 seconds of police arriving after she was spotted holding a knife. On the whole though most police are decent enough.

    Ok.. so a bit of a strange post.....

    No I've never been to see a psychic/medium. Can't say I have any interest really BUT my Dad had his palm read by a gypsy when he was in his early 20s and she gave him the initials of the woman he would marry. KFM. He didn't go hunting for a girl with those initials but guess what ....................... he did meet my Mum and by complete coincidence her first name began with K and her last name began with M (Mackenzie). He also found out a bit later that her middle name was Frances.

    Summer is coming - are you a fan of the heat?

    I'm inclined to agree about the heat in the UK and the houses are like ovens during hot weather and don't seem to cool down much at night. I don't like the airless stuffiness of over heated houses in the winter either. The north west Tassie coast weather suits me just fine - one of the reasons I wanted to live here. During the winter many Tasmanians disappear up to Qld for 2 or 3 months to get away from the colder weather. I enjoy the winters here.

    Lancashire Cheese Delivery?

    Just bought some yesterday Skani. Funny though - it was cheaper at Hill Street grocers than it was at Ashgrove Dairy.

    Over my lifetime I've spent Christmas in various countries. Experienced heat and humidity, snow and dull, wet weather. None of them bothered me one way or the other. It's the company that matters.
  13. Do they get into your house through the fly screen bottler. What a pest.

    Summer is coming - are you a fan of the heat?

    No way could I walk let alone jog in 40C heat. I always wear a hat, sunglasses and cotton 3/4 length pants and 3/4 length sleeved tops. No problem at all with my skin - never burned and for an old dame my skin is pretty good - don't like sunscreen so rarely slap it on - ever. Not to be recommended in the Aussie sun but there you go.
