    My understanding is that this is only a Draft ruling and has not passed yet, is this correct? My accountant tried to explain the possible actions we could take, but it was as clear as mud. I understand if you cant pay the distributions from 16th Dec 2009, (which we can not as the payments...

    iPOD - Is this possible??

    I have a similar problem, because I have tinnitus I use a homemedics sound machine to block out the noise of my ears ringing. You can choose from themes like rainforest, ocean etc. I cant live without it now. It can be set to timer or to run until you turn it off.

    Anyone buying in Perth ??

    Newbie1 I find it odd that you think Rockingham is isolated but Mandurah is not, and I agree that the beaches around Rockingham are some of the best in the metro area (think of Point Peron area)

    Market for renting 4x2 IP

    Hi Jebb, what do you call a decent area. That figure you are quoting will only cover a loan of $400k and that is interest only, cant think where you would buy a "decent" house for that much

    Paying off variable loan early, what penalties?

    Yes as Gee Cee said it may be best not to pay it off. Another option which we are using at them moment is to put the same amount of money into an offsett account so you are not paying any interest, but the loan is still current.

    current curtain fashion

    I have used in the past curtain rods (you cut to size with a hacksaw) with the spring loaded ends which self support - no drilling required. Then buy ready made pocket rod curtains, use one side of the pair for each window, because you scrunch them up they dont have to be a perfect fit, too easy.
