January 2012 Review

Walk

No nasty New Years Resolutions to break. Check.

Professionally, pretty good. Business is holding, … just! In a frightening economy for retail in Australia, that is ok. Massive website expansion with loading of new products, and internet sales are picking up.

Personally, bit more time on my hands, would like to improve my activity levels and health. Lets see what we can do in February.

My Favorite Month

Photo of the Week – Spring blossoms (MA)

I love October, it is when Spring really starts in the Southern Highlands. The days are getting longer and all the blossoms are in the trees. It is a beautiful time in the Highlands, just driving along my street makes me happy as it is so pretty.

Confidential credit information? … I think not!

Ain’t it strange, I just upgraded my credit cards to one with more fancy extras and took up one of the many offers of an increase in my credit limit.  Within one week, one of the  competitor “Big Four” banking institutions had offered me a car loan, the next week another offered me a new credit card, and today I received my third credit offer.  All this within 17 days.  Co-incidence, I don’t think so… I thought my credit details were supposed to be confidential.  Apparently not!

Sad fact is, I am not even particularly surprised.
