Car maintenance benefits

I’m a big advocate for doing what you need to do in order to avoid having problems in the future. What I mean by this is taking steps to pre-empt any dilemmas. A great example of this is the steps I take to ensure proper car maintenance. I always drive according to the speed limit, …

Building A Table

I’ve got twenty minutes left until I go to bed and I’m just trying to fill the time until then. I live by a really strict schedule that sees me go to bed at 10:00 pm and wake up at 7:00 am each morning. I can’t go to bed before ten or I won’t get …

Needs A Service

So apparently it’s not that easy to get a ducted heating service on the day you decide you want one. I definitely knew that would be the case because heating service is in a very high demand these days, seeing as we’re coming up to winter. No one wants to spend any unnecessary time in …

Air Conditioning Love

I am living a love story. It’s without a doubt one for the ages and it is the type of story that people write about, sing about, scream about – you name it. I never thought that I would be the type of person that would be lucky enough to find unconditional true love, but …

New Game?

I knew it was going to be a mistake to kill off the characters in our Hardware Store Bonanza game. The players are naturally upset about it, but they refuse to make new characters and start the adventure again, even though their previous plan was terrible. The RPG system didn’t even have rules for fighting, …

Big Rort

It’s been quite a week for financial scandals. As a financial journalist specialising in the technology arena, that’s good news for me – bad news is better than no news, as far as I’m concerned. Still, even I can’t help but grimace at some of the fraudulent activity that’s going down at the moment – …
