Car accessories

I can still remember back in the days when I was a bit of a petrol head. It started when I bought my first sports car; a 1992 Honda Prelude. It was the best looking car on the streets at the time and I was a slave to it! Everyday is spent cleaning it and buying auto accessories for it. But it was well worth it because the looks I get from the chicks were priceless!

Total fire ban day

Today's the most dangerous fire danger day since February 7th last year. Melbourne is expected to reach a top temperature of 36C but the forecast is usually less than the real temperature. Other parts of the state are expected to reach into the 40's so its a total fire ban for most parts of the state including Melbourne.

Seriously, we're still in spring and summer is not meant to start till next month. If this is what we can expect in spring then I don't want to know what summer is going to be like.

Gold investment

I know of a few friends who invest their money in gold instead of the stock exchange or properties. I suppose you have to know what you’re doing if you want to buy gold bullion as an investment. Some of them told me how the returns is really good so now I’m inclined to do the same too. Not restriciting to just buy bullion, you can also buy gold coin instead.

I’m a little nervous since gold is very new to me as an investment so I have to do my homework before I use my hard earned cash to purchase gold bullion or coins and hope to get a handsome profit along the way. I think I should ask my friends for some advise, I’ll start a couple who buy bullion on a daily basis. I’m sure they can give me some good tips.

That is it

Spent the whole Sunday helping the inlaws move..again. But today we finally got everything out of the old house and into the new one. Its taken over 2 weekends to shift all their worldly possessions. Things that have been accumulated in that house for 26 years. Should have hired a truck and we'd have got everything done quicker because instead we had a trailer to transport all the stuff in several trips thus wasting a lot of time in the process. Nevermind, its all done now so that is it.
