    Is there a way for landlords to join forces and boycott kmart?

    I think this has been mentioned, but electric fan heaters are almost 100% efficient ;) I think what you are worried about is that the overall system of turning your cash into heat is not very efficient. :D I suggest open fireplaces in each room. Think of the ambiance!

    Driverless cars - the biggest potential impact to real estate?

    I think there will be some small shifts in which areas are popular, but overall property areas will keep a similar relationship in price. Some regional areas may get opened up more though. Driverless car to and around the Hunter Valley? Yes please! I think though that Driverless cars are...

    Millers Point Airbnb? Two one bedroom apartments sold together.

    I wonder how something like this would go on airBNB. Needs a renovation... But not much airBNB competition in the area. http://www.realestate.com.au/property-terrace-nsw-millers+point-119932913

    Escape room games

    I love the concept of these and badly want to start my own as a business. But I looked at the prices they charged, and the cost to set one up... I am not convinced that there is a huge amount of money in it unless you are super busy.

    Anyone else's phone go forward one hour this morning?

    I had always laughed at the whole curtains fading idea, but this made me actually stop and think that there is something to it. Same with the skin cancer. Apologies if I am just really slow to realise this and you guys were poking fun at people to make the joke without thinking about it -...

    Very bad experience with a property managers

    Fair enough, I have only used Fair Trading for one other dispute, but it was quite effective. What would you recommend as a good way to resolve a dispute if they will not respond to calls or emails?

    Very bad experience with a property managers

    I have also had a very bad experience with this Property Management company. It looks like Fair Trading will also be the best way to resolve my dispute. It's unfortunate - at first the PM was fantastic and I could not have been happier. My lesson was not as expensive as yours though.

    Good deal found

    I contacted scha9799 and got some vague details and narrowed it down to the house I thought it could be. It didn't seem like a overly good deal to me and he would not give me the actual address without meeting in person (fair enough too if he thought it was a good deal for someone). Below...

    Legal action against Coles, need advice

    From what was said I think she made a very reasonable decision and it was not really the reaction of someone trying to run from security. From my understanding, a person in normal clothes stopped her accused her of shoplifting but could not produce a credible security ID. Not knowing if they...

    Legal action against Coles, need advice

    I totally agree that legal action is not the right choice. Which jerrybee acknowledges a few posts in. He was pissed off and over-reacted, but calmed down and is happy to look at the reality of the situation. But I don't think it should just be dismissed as a case of getting over it...

    Do you know this Tree and it's strange fruit

    Looks like it could be a White Malay apple (Syzygium malaccense) which is an Australian Native. http://www.fruitlovers.com/WhiteMalayApple.jpg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnMKQmW7hqs
