    is my electricity bill normal

    I live in a 2 bed unit with no gas connection. My last 4 monthly electricity bills are $140, $229, $100 and $193. Our stove top is electric (ceramic) and there is no air conditioner. A couple of persons have told me that my electricity bill is a bit higher, for a 3 person household, because of the electric stove. If I replace it with a gas stove, the bill would go down to approximately $80-$130 range monthly, on average. I still have to authenticate this myself.
  2. Me & my OH are flying out to Perth in June, the shippers are coming in in a couple of weeks. My OH is a carpenter and wants to take most of his hand/power tools. I have just sat down and started to clean up some of them, but I've given up! I have spent ages cleaning one of his power tools, and there are so many more to go!!, however clean it maybe, it still does'nt look like it's just come out the box, obviously they have all been well used so will never look band new again, exactly how clean do they have to be? or has anybody has their tools professionally cleaned, maybe thats an option? He has purchased some new ones to replace some that we towards the end of thier life, so they will be ok, but he has so many that need to be cleaned, it's going to take forever!!!

    Best Energy Company

    Hi All, I will be moving into my first rental apartment soon in Sydney. How can I choose the best energy company in terms of charges? Browsing on the internet, there seem to be comparison websites around. Do these really work? Has anyone tried them before? Many thanks in advance.
  4. Totally trivial topic but wondered whether there were enough Take That fans amongst us that could sign a petition and send it to the official Take That website and get them to come out in concert???!!! Realise this is probably one for the ladies but just think guys if you sign up the lady in your life will always be indebted to you!! I have emailed once but maybe if we can get enough together - social media power may do the trick!! If it doesn't work then I will just have to keep dreaming!!!
  5. Inspired by the idea of the things people have been mentioning regarding the up coming seasonal celebrations I thought. Of a special thread that will allow us to send a special wish to anyone on PIO. We read of each others journeys, struggles, hopes, dreams & ambitions, well I thought it would be a posititive thing to be able to send out a wish to a fellow PIOer. I've just granted my first wishes To Naomi & To Pablo, & may they both get those things they are desiring & requiring swiftly & without obstacles. So Get Wishing Pioers & enjoy the spirit of giving :wubclub:

    Rental Secured - power, gas etc

    Hi, We secured a rental in Curtain today. A couple of hours later I had a txt message and a phone call asking to connect power, gas etc from connectnow pty ltd. Is this the main (and only) provider? Are they ok or is it a scam? Thanks, ChrisW.
  8. We are about to move into our new flat and I am confused as to which power & gas company to use (I am in Victoria). I compared prices with a little help of the internet and read a couple of customer reviews about certain companies. The thing is I know that most often only those people write reviews about products or services who want to complain about something. So the reviews I found were not very reassuring. The Direct Connect people who are on some contract with our estate agent only offer AGL power&gas which is not the cheapiest supplier so I thought I'll have a look if there are any other good companies with better prices. Well, yes, there are other companies for Victoria but maybe they are not good in other aspects??? (I did some research about Australian Power and Gas, Red Energy and Origin, and all of them seem to suffer from bad customer service.) Now, maybe some of you guys have more experience as to what (not) to believe. Has anyone recommendations? Any advice would be much appreciated.:wubclub:

    Anyone have Solar power...

    Received an offer from AGL to install solar power. The cost would be $5000 for a 1.5KW system. I have no idea how much cheaper my electricity bill would end up being if I did this. Anyone accepted one of these offers or have any opinions...

    Positive Power

    Hi Guys, I haven't been on here for a while, but after scrolling through some threads, I have noticed a lot of demotivated people on here. Some are angry, some are frustrated and some are extremely confused and rightly so. As a pick me up, I have decided to strat up this thread to try and lift some spirits. If anyone wants to add any positive quotes or funny stories, please feel free. Here is my little contribution. " Whenever you permit yourself to think what persons, things, conditions, or circumstances may suggest, you are not following what you want to think. You are not following your own desires but borrowed desires. Use your imagination in determining what you want to think or do. " Christian D. Larson ( 1874 - 1962 ) Keep The Faith, John
  18. Evening all, My OH and I started the pre visa application process 6 months ago and he has passed his VETASSESS assessments (written and practical) and his ILETS exams. We were planning to apply for for a 175 and SS after our recce trip, switching to 176 when we got the SS. From what I can understand, this isn't going to be an option (unless we pay the fees twice which I'm not prepared to do) now. I'm not really clear on what the caretaking role of the Government means to us in terms of applying. Can we still submit an application? OH is a mechanic. We aren't 100% sure about which state we want to move to as our recce trip isn't until May 2011 and neither of us have even been to Oz before. I don't want to wait to submit our 175 as the ILETS and VETASSESS will expire and it's too expensive to resit them. I know we won't be in a priority processing group if we submit without SS so it's a real dilemma. Can we even submit an application prior to the election? Thanks in advance for your comments and advice Regards Emma & Steve:smile:

    The Power Of People.

    The question is this. Do we have to accept the way things are? In other words do we as responsible adults 'let' things carry on as they are and accept that that is just the way it is? Do we admonish ourselves of some responsibility when we say to ourselves, 'It is someone else's problem, (normally government). We all I dare say see things every day that in our opinion 'should' be changed, your idea of change could be wholly different to mine, but that is not enough reason to realise that your own point of view 'may; have some validity, even as I have just said, I may not agree at all with your reasoning. There were many thousands of people who protested about the gulf war, fox hunting, poll tax, etc, the list is endless, some of this 'direct' action resulted in many government policies being changed or abolished completely, so in essence can things 'change' if enough of us stand up and be counted. I know that we are all living very, very, busy lives, I understand that completely, but in essence is it the 'responsibility' of us to have the will and fortitude to continue to make our voices heard until change comes about. I know that we are all legally entitled to vote, (if we meet certain criteria) and in so doing for all its shortfalls we in some strange way vote a certain party into power, but is that where our voices should stop being heard. I reckon there are three types of people in this world, I fear I am going to cause offence here but here goes. Firstly I think by far the largest group are those in the SSS group, in other words the Shrugging Shoulder Syndrome. Where people have seen things, heard things over many many years and we/they just accept that it is the 'way' of the world. Where no matter what they do and say nothing will ever change, so there is no point in making a stand and to do so would have little or no impact at all. (I USED to be one of the many, so I understand this mindset completely). The second group are those that are in the FY group, I often try and refrain from swearing but basically this means 'Feck You', or I'm all right jack and I really can't be bothered to try and change anything as I'm doing all right and bugger the next person. Thankfully I reckon this group of people are very small in comparison and thankfully always will be. The third group of people are what you could call direct 'activists' where they believe that if something needs changing then they will shout and scream from the rooftops until their voice is heard. They will do all sorts of things to see if change can come about, write letters to newspapers, contact their MP's, even march on local government and indeed parliament. They may have some very weird ideas in YOUR opinion but at the very least they are in the belief that what they say is right and just. I am far from judging anyone, far from it. As I said, I know only too well that we are all very busy, we have to concern ourselves with our nearest and dearest and make sure they are cared for and looked after in this world. But I often wonder if enough of us took more 'direct' action then things 'maybe' could change. For instance, if enough of us wrote a petition or even joined a march to parliament to ask for proper sentencing for different crimes. Or the need for proper and compassionate care for those that really needed it. Or march against the money that is spent on commissions, quangos, by the government, the list is endless. We all have our own ideas and thoughts that are important to us, each one of us is an individual after all, and in as much we are all different. But does a sense of 'Social Consciousness' stop when we have cast a vote in a general election. Is that the end of our responsibility? Do we in some way believe that government has all the power in this modern world? If so I 'think' we are mistaken, and often at our peril. If we believe that those in power have the last word on many matters are we not giving them carte blanche to walk all over us and 'think' in their own minds that what they say and do is the be all and end all of the situation. Time and time again government has shown that they have acted completely irresponsibly and without compassion. They have for all intents and purposes done what they 'see' as right because not enough of us stood up and fought for what we believed in. As I said, your ideas about what is right and proper 'may' be totally out of kilter with mine, but my point is this. Even if we may disagree on a certain subject surely if this subject was raised in a more direct and forthright manner then at the very least a debate would be started and some form of conclusion be drawn after this debate. Or am I living in cloud cuckoo land, where to concern ourselves with such matters is often more than we can do, simply because we are concerned with trying to look after our own family in this ever more pressured and busy world we find ourselves in? Maybe I am being totally naive about this situation, maybe. But I happen to believe that if enough of us did that little bit more, i.e., write a letter to an MP, emailed them, marched on parliament, then maybe, just maybe things MAY change for the better., IMO. Cheers Tony

    UK power unit for Wii

    I am returning to UK and wonder if anyone has a Wii they brought from uk and needs an Aus power unit for it. I would like to swap the power unit if possible, rather than using an adapter back in the UK.

    Power tools

    I sold all my carpentry and joinery tools about 1 1/2 years ago but then got fed up sitting around waiting for our visa so decided to start a joinery workshop again, only 5 months ago. It now looks like we could be going sooner than we thought, so do I sell all my new tools or is it cost effective to take them. Will I be able to buy pins for my axminster air pinners and dewalt pinners. Spare parts and batteries for other tools! Or should I have a bootfair AGAIN! Thanks Clinton.

    Power Tools

    Hi, we are finally moving to Perth on the 24th June after a very long wait re visas and selling our home. My husband is a joiner and is a bit unsure as to what power tools are used on site, are they 110 or 240 and also is it worth bringing them with us or buying new when we get there. With regards to Passlode nail guns, are the nails and gas cheap. Many thanks Dee.:confused:

    Power Tools?
