    Is there a way for landlords to join forces and boycott the environment

    Even worse than dihydrogen monoxide being readily available.. Many council FORCE householders to have provision for the storage and disposal of this terrible substance. Without adequate provision for correct removal dHMO causes much danger. Why just yesterday, I saw a news report that a spill...

    HECS debt and death.

    Doesn't the ATO have similar powers at our borders, so you don't skip out on "significant" tax debt?

    HECS debt and death.

    My daughter studied in NZ and had student loans that had to be repaid regardless of where she lived. Not sure how they policed it though.

    HECS debt and death.

    My 50 something sister in law has just enrolled in an Arts degree that she has absolutely no intention of using for anything else than her own self education. Now I have no problem with that at all, except that I have just found out she is eligible for a HECS ( I think it is HELP now?). I...

    What would YOU do?

    I am on the same line as Marg... Live a little With 4k pa shortfall and 90k "spare". You are in a good position. Is there some education you want to do to raise your 50k income? Is there an exotic destination you want to see? Do you just want to travel around Aus for 6 months? If you...

    Sharp Dents from underneath in a flat roof - future corrosion point?

    I would be getting the roofer back and rectify this. At a wild guess they have not knocked down nails (or something) that was there. Have you paid 100% for this job?

    flexi rent

    It used to be "better" to Flexi rent because the amount was deductible immediately rather than having to depreciate the computer. (Although a $1000 laptop is immediately deductible anyway). Now with this years $20k ceiling, it won't make any difference tax wise. If you can afford to pay...

    Apparently I'm considered "Rich" or "Loaded"...

    :) "haters" does seem to be the new vernacular for jealousy. My meaning is to not let distractors deter you from your wealth plan.

    Apparently I'm considered "Rich" or "Loaded"...

    Calm down people... He works in on office with girls aged between 20 and 30, could be 2 could be 5 could be 20. Quite sure he does not work in a harem :cool:

    Apparently I'm considered "Rich" or "Loaded"...

    Regardless of what your workmates and friends might say.( you are always gonna get haters) .. I think the above quote is not acceptable language from a PM ( no matter what age) Have a chat to the principle of the agency.

    $1.6 million house in Caroline Springs

    No Idea about the area at all ( have never heard of it ) but WOW what a house. Shame they didn't have pics of the bedrooms. That is the type of OTT house I would buy with a lotto win (and a team of cleaners)

    Defining wealth

    My definition of wealth is to have enough income to lead the life I wish to at the time I wish to. This definition is different for everyone. My parents and inlaws can do whatever they want whenever they want on a pension. They are simple people who don't aspire to luxury cars and overseas...

    Can you service your existing debts if rates rise to 10% or 18%

    the biggest pain of the whole 18% days of the early 80's was the rapid rise. We bought our first home with 3yo fixed rate of 12.5% at the end of the 3 yo we came out at 18%:eek: Our house did double in 18 months and then doubled again in the next 2 years, after being pretty stagnant...

    Can you powder-coat over anodising?

    Yep no problem.. We powdercoat over anodised no problem at all. Our powdercoater will even coat white over bronze anodised without any hassle. Check with your powdercoater. The ONLY problem we can see is the cost of securing the site while you have no balustrades.

    Having a go: 1984 small business video

    Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed that. I think the keys points that were reiterated at the end of the programme still hold true today. Make sure you have a plan of where you are going. (Woodlyn Nursery) Look for niches within your industry (Paul Wright) If something isn't working...
