You forgot the duty charged when anything over $1k is bought out of Australia. Apparently they call it "free trade" but I haven't yet worked out what that means.

A few years ago we went to war in Iraq to secure a free trade agreement with the Bush administration. Yet when we want to buy anything from US websites, they raise the price 30% or more once they realise the buyer's from Oz.

Indeed, it's a sad day when you have to revert to crotched suits again. Be strong, Andrew.

If I can muster enough discipline to do the exercise and get enough learning about the mechanics and the dos and don'ts of my particular back condition, I think I can minimise that boom-bust cycle. In other words, I'm in trouble!

Just stay where you are and chances are that the water views will one day come to you.

I'm a cheap drunk. After three drinks you will get no sense from me at all. It's been a long time but I'd probably need another three to get there.

Here's a fun trick - if you're on someone's PC search the browser history for "porn" - it's hilarious. Not that I ever tell anyone else of my findings ... it's purely for my own quiet amusement.
