  1. The shipper we are considering has advised us that around 60% of consignments have damage done upon the quarantine inspection. I suspect/ hope this is just a sales technique to get me to take the all risks insurance. Can anyone tell me if they had any damage done to their shipment and if so how bad it was. ​Thanks in advance
  2. or more specifically time. I was wondering you views on this guys. A crack has appeared in the glass on our shower near the bottom. It started out very small, and of course is getting gradually bigger. Now here's the thing, our apartment it what you could desribe is 'tired' Its by no means a dump, but lets just say it needs some TLC. Now the glass at the bottom you can see has been holding water for years after you have a shower, turning the inside of the glass a bit mouldy. There is already a few chips in the glass, its evident this it what has started the crack. Now the worry I have is that we didnt cause the crack even though it happened while we where here, and its only going to get bigger, eventually running the full height of the shower cubical. We have an inspection in a couple of weeks, and im wondering if I should be straight up with the agent and just show them? On the basis of the condition of the apartment im hoping it will be seen as relative. I really dont want this to effect our bond in the long term. Any thoughts? :idea:

    skin damage

    one good reason to move back to the uk is to stop your skin being damaged by the sun. using sun block or not people here 90% of the time look at least 5+ years older than they are, sometimes worse. i had a friend i was working with last year, keen offshore fisherman, who in the conversation said,"you know that bloke he's our age", i thought , excuse me?, i was 39 at the time and had this fellow down as being 50 at least. turns out he was 44, i thought well thats the sun for you!. anyone else noticed this?, also how many aussies smoke!, absoutley loads here!!, that combined with a real dental problem and bad diet....fast food!, makes me think i'm living in a blue collar nightmare, (not everyone is like this but a lot of people are). i am a blue collar person myself but if i compare these things with the uk , ( i know im not in the uk!), person for person it seems peoples attitude to health/food/smoking etc is 20 years behind uk. footnote....didnt oz get the unhappy title of the fattest nation on earth?, if it did beating the yanks is some going....sort of blows the bronzed aussie god myth out of the water.......just my observations...i'm not having a go...honest!
