  1. Considering that I resigned 3 weeks ago and I've had 0 work related emails into my inbox since Wednesday lunchtime, my biggest issue at the moment is "Where are my sunnies?😎"
  2. In 4 weeks time I won't care what my current office looks like...I resigned yesterday 😀 But I don't think they're too concerned about me leaving. My replacement was in the CEOs office this morning at 8am. AJ
  3. Which only goes to show how out of touch some of the media really are. Its kinda simple. To win the world cup you need to able to consistently beat the kiwis and we havn't had a team capable of doing either for about 10 years. About time we put in a coach who is less concerned about PR image, the spirit of the game and political correctness and more concerned about getting the job done whatever way is necessary. Put the best players in the team in their best positions. Win a few games and nobody will care less what they said or did. AJ
  4. Only need 1 Battery unless you're going to be in the middle of nowhere for a decent period of time...but its worthwhile investing in a USB powered battery charger. ($15 on ebay from memory). Just come back from the US where my M100 was the main camera and Mrs AJ was using her phone as a backup. The only time I ran out of battery was during an all day hop on hop off bus tour of San Francisco. Camera spent too much time in "ready to take memorable photo" mode with the rear screen active. Generally took between 160 and 220 photos in a day. Reckon if you turn it off when you don't need it then you'll be fine. For the record, Mrs AJs phone ran out of power most days. Tripod? If you wanted to carry things around would you have bought a small compact camera? My guess is no. Same answer for the tripod. Personally I find having multiple lens is a pain because you'll usually find that the one you want to use isn't the one on the camera. And besides that is just something else to carry. AJ
  5. I want to know why you need a "Caution - May Be Hot" sign on a hot water tap. Maybe we just need a generic warning sign. "Don use this if you're a complete moron with no common sense" AJ
  6. We do. Its known as the Looney Bin. You'll find plenty of triathletes there already.
  7. Bought a DSLR many years ago for the luxury of having the different lens. Problem is that I never bothered how to use it in manual mode properly. Apparently its a common problem with DSLR users. Going on a trip later this year and didn't want to lug the DSLR around so went looking for something smaller. Ended up getting the Canon M100 mirrorless. Pretty much a point and shoot camera but I've been really impressed with the quality of the images. Max of 24Megapixels and apparently it has the same size sensor as the Canon DSLRs which helps the picture quality. Can't remember exactly what I paid but I got it through Amazon. AJ
  8. Disclaimer: I'm not an accountant and I don't play one on TV Think you're asking the wrong people My Best Advice: Get yourself a great financial wizard/genius Accountant that you trust implicitly. From my (very) limited understanding of the tax implications around investment properties, its very easy to make very expensive mistakes. And worse still, the rules around them seem to change yearly. And as a side note, I believe this year the tax man is concentrating on dodgy deduction claims on investment properties regarding renovations called repairs, inspections etc etc etc. AJ
  9. Don't have a lot of motivation to travel overseas. There's too much to see and do here in Australia that I doubt I'll get to see/do even 10% of whats on my bucket list. Problem is my bucket list involves more than just being there but rather spending time there and having a good look around. So the bucket list (in part) consists of: Kakadu and Litchfield National parks in depth. Was there briefly in 2014 but barely scratched the surface. Kings Canyon West and East MacDonnell Ranges Arnham Land Kimberleys Western Australia (yeah all of it) Channel Country of Western Queensland Cape York (but not necessarily the OTT) SA/NSW/QLD border region including Oodnadatta Track, Birdsville track, Coopers Creek, Camerons Corner etc Broken Hill and Silverton (so I can appreciate it more this time) Victorian High Country (in Summer) Flinders Ranges Tasmania (yeah all of it) Murray River (if theres any water in it) AJ
  10. No. Brain just wired differently to others. And its nothing special. Mrs AJ remembers everything....and will drag it out at any time during any argument to prove her point.
  11. Just as a matter of interest, Anybody know if you can get booked for having the viewing screen on when you're driving? Theres been a recent spate of bookings when the front seat passenger has been using a phone/tablet and its been deemed as distracting to the driver. AJ
  12. Yeah I once had a Boss who hurt himself jumping to the wrong conclusion
  13. Personally don't agree with it. Don't have a problem with anybody who does. The way I figure it, its none of my business whether you do or don't. Reckon there are too many people in the world trying to make too many mountains out of too few molehills and in the process only showing that all they really should have done is just shut up.
  14. According to Donald Trump, Donald Trump will show us the light and tell us what is the truth and what is fake news
  15. Maybe its a new Deconstructed Filtered Coffee variety
