    Cats - How can I get them out of my yard?

    I don't know why people insist cats need to go outside. my cats are indoor cats and have a wonderful time using their hunt and kill instincts on spiders and cockroaches. Have not needed a pest inspector in years. edit to add: they also have a passion for cobwebs. now if they could only handle dust my life would be complete😀

    contact a local cat protection society, not the RSPCA, they might have some non lethal ideas.

    What training did you do today...

    Hi ex, if you are having trouble finding when shares were bought and sold, the you can go the share registry of the stocks, either Computershare, linkmarket servies or boardroom radio, and they will have the total history of buy, sell, dividends, splits, consolidations etc. sometimes stocks change the share registry so you might have to check with both or all three.

    Straddie Salute 2019

    Strong all round runner. Lots of stairs, but not only a normal step, mixes up one and a half stride stairs and double stride stairs, depending how short you are 😄 also beach running, a bit of soft sand. No where to hide at all come to think of it. Lots of fun.
  8. Ok, do you have high blood pressure ? There is some pretty good research out there on the benefits of daily monitoring of blood pressure. Because BP is so variable, a one off at the doctor’s can sometimes muddy the water. But if you take it daily at different times, then take the records to your checks up it can assist the doctor in prescribing medication etc. anyhoo, if it’s an issue can be worth discussing with doctor.
  9. I wouldn’t be depending on them for monitoring a serious condition. More a curiousity IMHO. The Apple heart tracker is a good data capture. Also their alerts for high heart rate and if you have a heart attack they will ring nominated number is pretty cool. We got one for my dad who lives alone. It also can detect a fall which is essential for him these days. Goughy, did they say what might have caused the strokes?

    Financial planners

    Depends. If he wants to do it himself he can set up an online account. The big banks have their own online platforms. If he banks with commonwealth he can open a CommSec account. Transfer his shares to them, he will need his chess code or HIN. Being a bank customer he will get a slight discount on the trade, usually they charge 19,95 for first $15k then a percentage for amounts above. If with NAB likewise. Avoid Westpac and Anz as they are high fee providers. There are a stack of other online trading platforms which offer various benefits. Canstar have a rating system so if you google it they will give you a better idea. If it’s a really big portfolio then maybe a broker might be a good idea as they can drip feed into the market for best price. Have no idea about how they structure their fees sorry.

    2018 numbers - Swing ya d1ck time

    Hmmm 16 races 🤔 which required lots of swimming, not quite enough cycling and way too little on the run front. goal for this year is maybe not quiet as many races and more balance on the swim bike run front with a bit more strength thrown in
