Got this in the post the other day… and it made me wonder just what sort of idiots these scam artists think we are? Just *who* in their right minds would respond to a letter that ‘out of the blue’ tells you you suddenly own $800,000? Just *who* in their right minds would send off … More Nigerian scam artists.
We’re quite remarkably well off by most standards. The wife earns a bucket of money, which of course we spend and enjoy pretty much, however the actual ‘quality of life’ issue still raises it’s head now and then. In order for the wife to earn this small fortune she has to leave the house at … More How's your quality of life?
The Powerball jackpot which eventually accumulated to AU$58,000,000 has been won… by a single person… but sadly *not* by anyone in New South Wales so it looks as if the wife still has to go to work today. Still, there’s always next week to look forward to. 🙂
I’m still doing the ‘emailcash‘ thing and it all seems to be working out ok. For those that don’t know, emailcash is an online ‘rewards’ program specifically for Australians. They have nearly a million members now and it’s still growing. Basically you buy things online from selected retailers and receive ‘points’ for each dollar you … More Emailcash doing well.
This morning I was bemoaning the fact that I forgot to enter the Powerball Lottery this week when the Jackpot stood at a record AU$40 million. Today I’m pleased because it didn’t go off so I get another chance next Thursday when the Jackpot will stand at $50,000,000 can you *imagine* winning that?!? 😀 Personally … More Powerball jackpot to hit $50 million
You may have noticed a few changes on the sidebars, for example more adverts and a couple of new boxes dotted about. Nothing to worry about, just adjusting the ‘selling’ side in case someone decides an advert is attractive and clicks to find out more. Of course the more clicks the more ‘return’ I get … More Just fiddling.
Thinking of the problems the neighbour has started me wondering what would happen if someone wanted open a business in our street. I eventually got round to wondering what if *we* opened a business… and the only one I could see someone as idle as me coping with would be running a small ‘hostel’ type … More A nice little earner!
Bands like U2 have been whinging because the poor dears are losing money to those poor sods entirely lacking in musical discernment who download their music… illegally. Admittedly I’ve never bought anything U2 had produced… but then I wouldn’t listen to them either if I had any choice in the matter and wouldn’t download their … More Poor U2 – for a few dollars more?
We’ve sat around this arvo looking at ways to save a few dollars this year. What with one thing and another the bank balance is currently looking a little bare… ok a bit less than bare! So far we’ve slashed $300 a month off our expenses with more to come. Not as much as we’d … More Working on the finances
We’d all like some… me especially. As regulars know last year I tried to sort out some online finance only to have the bank account hacked twice and lost all the profits… which sort of put me off it. However, one source of income has continued to trickle a few dollars in here and there … More Money for old rope?
