    Anyone watching the cricket ?

    Big at the weekends here. The local oval has the Devonport cricket team playing against another town's team most weekends plus casual games happening on the greens around town. At low tide the local children have cricket matches on the beach on the hard sand. Devonport Oval and cricket club

    While on a WHV - applying for another VISA

    I worked in the examinations area of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia in Sydney and arranged exam venues in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore for candidates who were studying the ICAA Professional Year. Loads of successful exam candidates from those places successfully migrated to Australia. This was a number of years ago. I thought at the time there must be a glut of accountants here.

    We went for a picnic near Deloraine today. Lovely countryside - very peaceful. Nice sunny day and 22C.

    Is it a good move financially?

    An internal RBA document, made public on Friday, has predicted a 30 per cent growth in property prices over a period of three years if interest rates remain persistently low. According to the RBA’s data mapping, a permanent 1 percentage point (100 basis point reduction) cut in the official rate could increase real housing prices by 30 per cent after about three years. On the contrary, the RBA noted, if low rates are only temporary, house prices would rise by 10 per cent over the three-year period. The official interest rate is currently at a record low of 0.1 per cent, following several cuts since mid-2019, with RBA governor Philip Lower noting on numerous occasions that the rate will not increase for “at least” three years.

  9. He was a talented but very strange man with a few mental problems.
  10. Not according to SOME whiny tennis players and their entourage. I agree it is a great event and I've attended the open in Melbourne a couple of times but maybe not wise to have it this year. Wimbledon was cancelled last year. Made sense.
  11. First of all you would need a visa. You could look at this website to give you an idea - it's Australia wide. https://www.seek.com.au/customer-service-manager-jobs It's no good applying for a job without a visa though.
  12. It was fairly common for in demand skills at one time but not so much these days.
