.... This note is about the idea of MORE reductions in company tax.
Before I start, I used to be a bond analyst and then share analyst-portfolio manager (for both Australian and International share markets) for a while.

An Aussie walks into a pub and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman..
He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a moment.
The woman notices this and asks, 'Is your date running late?'
'No', he replies,'I just got this state-of the-art watch...
We have a huge but harmless spider in Australia called a Huntsman. One summer when my daughter was a toddler, a large Huntsman took up residence in the cornice in our living room. We named her, "Sparkle." She coexisted with us happily in the house until one day she was gone...
and want a texting buddy? I really want a text friend my age who I can tell everything to, share jokes with and they can tell me everything and there will be no shame because we won't know each other in person. And phone calls when we have nothing else to do and just. That would...
and emigrated to Aussie. It certainly was the best move I every made. When I came to Australia I lived in Sydney first and then moved to Melbourne. Its hard to explain what it is about Aussie that I like , the weather is part of that reason for sure but there is a certain...
I was at the West Coast/Sydney game on the weekend.
No I didn't boo you.
But I can sympathize with those that have.
Not on a racial level. I take no issue with you being Indigenous.
I do take issue with your self righteousness and your arrogance and your ignorance.
usually by complete strangers. When I tell them I'm not they look at me in disbelief and dispute my ethnicity. I have had arguments and racial slurs yelled at me. I don't feel the need anymore to prove myself as I once did. What for? I don't care anymore.
I do love living in...
why my iPad takes 8 hours to fully charge, but my phone (iPhone 5C) takes at most an hour?
I've been charging my iPad since 2pm, at that point it was at 5% and it's only at 23% now.
It's not the cord or anything because I use the same one to charge my phone.
and I ran into this ole bogan who asked me to come to his house for a barbie. Before I did that I had to stop off at the bottle - o to get a sway so I put them in my eskie and was on my way. On my way there I stopped at the beach and went for a surf but then I thought I would...

it's easy to be disgusted with the racist Australians but let's not forget it all started with the bashing of a junior volunteer lifeguard , both sides represent the minority of dickheads in society , hopefully the proposed ' celebration' doesn't go ahead.
I woke this morning to news that 2 innocent people caught up in yesterdays siege in a Sydney cafe had been fatally shot by the man who held them and many more hostage for 17 hours.
The floral tributes keep on coming to Martin Place, the building there, opposite the cafe, hosts...
When A Girl is quiet
millions of things are running in her mind.
When a Girl is not arguing,
She is thinking Deeply.
When a Girl looks at you with eyes full of questions,
She is wondering how long you will be around.
When a Girl answers "I AM FINE" after a few seconds,
Minister or the current government speak for me or my beliefs and I really don't think that the country has ever had a worse government in its history since England claimed it as hers. Okay, that may sound like a big call - but in all seriousness this onan of a 'leader' Tony...
and around my age who would like a texting buddy (: just someone who I can talk to and we can share jokes, talk about anything and everything and just, yeah I'd be cool!
