Re: What UK Items should we buy before we LEAVE !

Bookdepository has solved the books problem, yay.

Re: Traveling to work in Melbourne

Ha ha. Coburg ;) But I take less than zero notice of new build places as they aren't on PT.

Re: Traveling to work in Melbourne

Hi Teri, well done on choosing Melbourne :)

Re: Negative Gearing for Oversea Property on Aus Domestic Income

Yep, we do. We've always made a slight loss on our property in the UK (rent didn't cover the mortgage at first, then tenants trashed it...) so we've always claimed that back from the AU tax man. ...

Re: Face Ozzie Wildlife

Definitely not the huntsman (found my first one in the house yesterday). I think it would have to be the Echidna. Where else in the world, eh? A cloaca? Good grief!!

Re: Upward inflection

I'd say yes, but, erm, I do it too now. I have a really bad habit of picking up accents and I'm sure anyone who knows me would agree, I now have the inflection at the end of my sentences?

Re: Washing Machines !!

Agree - front loaders wash better and use less water. Which anyone, wherever they are in AU, should be thinking about. If you have a machine you like, it works, you know how to use it and its...

Re: [Urgent] Anyone flown Qantas A380 Economy to LA ?

Re: What are U All Doing on Xmas Day?

Just the two of us, roast turkey (probably on the barbeque, unless the weather's like it was this weekend). Pressies, DVDs and catching up on time not spent with each other over a mad mad year.
