First to die

Someone has to be die! And that someone was this little fishy here found dead this morning by myself floating on the surface of the water. We bought 11 new fish for the fish tank about 3 weeks ago I think and now one has died.

Don't know what the cause of death is, I checked the water and the pH was good, water hardness was okay and the nitrogen level was at safe level too. So what killed it? My only other suspicion is it choked to death! I found it trying to swallow a whole ball of fish food the other day, it was smaller than the others so the food pellets were maybe too big for it to swallow but it did managed to eat them all. Maybe this time it finally got choked to death!

As long as they bloom

I saw this tree yesterday outside someone's house and I think it's pretty. Don't know what tree it is but it is in full bloom now. If you know what this tree is please let me know ya.

I like trees that bloom to add a splash of color into the gardens. If I had a big backyard I would definitely plant some flowering trees like this or any other flowering trees as long as they bloom!

Some random shots

This afternoon I took Terese to the local library to pick up some books. While she's looking for her books I sat at the table feeling bored so I took out my camera and took random shots at the library.

I'm sitting at this small round table looking at the reception area. The library has just open so there's not a lot of people around. That's good coz I don't think they appreciate me taking photos of them.

This is the entrance to the library which is on the other side of me. My local council spent a lot of our money renovating this library not long ago. What you think? Nice onot jek?

These are the first row of books closest to the entrance so if you want to steal them and make a run for it you can but book stealing is not a fun thing to do here. Why steal when you can borrow for free?

And this is my pair of legs under the table. So now you know how bored I was just sitting here waiting for Terese to do what she had to do. So boh liao can die!

Ralph & Edna

My friend sent me a funny email today so I thought I'll share it with the rest of you. Its a story about love between 2 inmates of a mental institution, its a story about Ralph and Edna. Enjoy.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool. Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, “Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.” Edna replied, “He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?”

Net Audio Ads

Website advertising has been around ever since the internet took off in its early days years ago. Advertising on websites is a good thing for both the advertisers since they can reach out to a wider audience and good for the website owners because they get to earn a decent compensation for their site’s real estate. But some times when websites are too saturated with too many ads the website becomes too messy, slow loading and becomes a turn off for its visitors.

There’s an alternative to this and that’s Net Audio Ads whereby every visitors to your websites will hear a 5 second audio ad targeting your visitor’s specific interest, demographics and geographic locations. This Pay Per Play system works similar to Google Adword except you get paid for every visitors to your sites! Net Audio Ads has been around for over two years with 66,000 advertisers and over 550,000 websites using this system.

But this lucrative affiliate program will end on February 1 whereby it will be converted to a “host only” model and you will only make revenue from ads placed on your own sites. If you sign up before this deadline you will still participate and share in this affiliate program after February 1 so don’t miss out on this great opportunity to generate some real revenue from your websites.

This is what I've been doing

This is what I've been doing for the last few days instead of blogging. Its the Christmas present my friends got for me and I've started working on it.

There's a lot to be done and if I followed the manual to the tee I'd have so much work to do! There's a lot of details involved and many different colors needed but most of the colors are just different shades of gray. So I said "Bugger that! I'll choose my own colors so I did and left a lot of the details out. I'll show you the final product when its completed okay?

Individual health insurance

Private health insurance is an important necessity of our lives nowadays, relieving the stress on the public system. But not all health insurance plans are created equal with different people having different needs. The thing is to find an individual health insurance plan tailored to your need and choosing the right one can be rather daunting. That’s why it pays to speak to an agent who can find the right health insurance plan for you and your family.

Different hobbies

Terese found a new hobby; jigsaw puzzle. She bought this cheap jigsaw puzzle set from the shop one day and decided to give it a try. When I looked at the 1000 pieces of the jigsaw I eyes see 'flowers' already!

Took her about 3 days to piece everything together. She has patience, she even asked me to help her but I have no patience in these tiny tiny pieces. The only way you'll ever get me to do a jigsaw puzzle is to use a picture of some Star Wars scene.

Here's the finished product; she said she's going to frame it and went out and bought 2 more sets from Kmart today. Well good for her she's found something to occupy herself while I do my scale modeling. We both have different hobbies.

Cheapest prescription glasses

Prescription glasses can be expensive so it’s always good to shop around, especially online where you can find some really good deals around.

Go to Great Discovery: and you will find the cheapest prescription glasses with large selection of frames with single vision lens, tinted sunglasses lens and bifocal lenses. Prices start at an incredible $8 for a complete eyeglasses plus case. They sell their own manufactured frames thus passing on the savings to you.

As per fengshui requirement!

Well what do you know? The last surviving fish of mine has finally joined all his friends in fish heaven so he's not lonely anymore. That's all the fish I ever had inside the fish tank.

Actually I noticed it wasn't eating yesterday but I didn't think much of it until this morning when I woke up and found it floating on the surface. I think its the heat; we've had a couple of days of very hot days with temperature in the mid to high thirties and the bowl wasn't big enough to keep the water temperature down. Looks like I'll be going down to the aquarium to pick up more fish; eight red ones and one black one as per fengshui requirement!

Pay Per Play

There are many ways in which a website can generate revenue by selling advertisements on their site. It is good both for the publisher as well as the advertisers but unfortunately too many ads on a web page can clog up a good site which may turn many visitors away.

But now there’s a new and better way of advertising on your website called Pay Per Play Ads whereby visitors to your site will hear a 5 second audio ad. The ads don’t appear on the web page so they don’t take up any web page real estate. This way every visitor to your website will generate revenue for you and there’s no annoying ads filling up your website.

All you can eat

Not much happened today, it was Terese's nephew's 17th birthday so we took him and his sister to Templestowe Hotel for a buffet lunch. They're both going to Adelaide to see their mum for a week next week so its good to do lunch together.

I think this is the 3rd time we've been here for buffet lunch. The place has a good atmosphere and the food is not that bad either. I always stuff myself with seafood like prawns every time I come here and then fill up as much as my stomach can hold! Why not? It's all you can eat so wallop them all down!

Better health

Many people struggle with their weight and no matter how or what diet system they go on they can never loose that extra weight. Overweight and obesity is a serious health issue and if you find it difficult to shed those kilos then maybe you should consider a weight loss surgery by JourneyLite called Lap Band Surgery. This surgery is safe and proven and most importantly it is completely reversible and adjustable for life.

I never take any chances with these blood suckers!

Today I went to the city to get something I've been meaning to get before the new year. Though its a normal weekday there wasn't many cars and parking was a breeze.

I was at Queen Victoria Market and there were heaps of parking spaces on the street where normally you would never find any. Though I wasn't going to be long I didn't forget to feed the meter just in case...

I'm glad I fed the meter because when I got back from my car two parking inspectors were issuing a parking fine to the car behind mine. One of them even asked me which was mine and I pointed out to him and he replied "You're alright". Of course I'm alright coz I paid up! I never take any chances with these blood suckers!

How's your New Year's Day?

It's New Year's Day and I'm bored already! I have nothing to do and no place to go. Most of the shops are closed but I don't like going shopping either. I have my scale model to work on but I need more paint and the hobby shops are all closed.

I have the fish tank to set up but I need a rubber seal for the canister filter and water conditioner but the aquariums are closed. I'd do some gardening but its 37C outside I cringed just thinking of the heat. Lucky I still got some movies that I downloaded last night to watch so its a hot and lazy New Year's Day thus far. How's your New Year's Day?
