    You won't believe what this mum wore to a wedding after promising not to upstage the bride!

    Look more like sisters to me. Could be a fake news story.

    You won't believe what this mum wore to a wedding after promising not to upstage the bride!

    I don't really see it as impressive shock value, it just looks like a case of very ordinary dress sense. Boring as batshit. The blue doesn't suit her at all. If she were my mother, I'd be disappointed she didn't put more effort into her choice of dress, which includes the colour and style of the...

    Discover the Five Surprising Mistakes You're Making Every Time You Pee, According to a Bladder Expert!

    It's was a useful and interesting read. A couple of days ago at a Doctors appointment, I mentioned that I was getting a low-level pain sensation towards the very end of each urination. Only a slight discomfort, but had been going on for about 1¹/² weeks. After a bit of a talk about what could...

    Shocking Behavior Unveiled: See the Real Estate Agent's Post That Exposes a Troubling Trend in Australia

    Nothing wrong with looking after one's own dung-heap. I too bought (built) on a single income with no assistance and it was tough. Also nothing wrong with taking advantage of government policies to grow wealth. And, there weren't many wealth creation ideas for most beyond bricks and mortar...

    Shocking Behavior Unveiled: See the Real Estate Agent's Post That Exposes a Troubling Trend in Australia

    From the article "The incident with the real estate agent serves as a wake-up call for all Australians to reflect on our values and how we treat the most vulnerable members of our community. It's a reminder that behind every tent, there is a human being with a story, struggles, and a need for...

    Ian, the thing is you don't actually have to trust them anymore and I'll explain what I mean by that later. Yes, the quote I was given was inclusive of all, ie the cheaper variable wholesale electricity charge (which was estimated at 0.3010 per KWH), the daily supply charges and the $19 per...

    More information from AMBER. They buy at the wholesale rate (which can change at the every 30 minute price update and that is what they sell it to you for. They do not sell it to you for a big fat profit margin fixed retail price. How they make their money is only from the $19 subscription fee...

    Save up to $443 on your energy bills with this simple strategy!

    That website is an excellent one. Thanks again for the recommendation Cheezil. It provided me, in very fast time with 7 different deal comparisons that were comprehensive in the detail provided. No stuffing around or having to put up with the non-sense Compare club put you through and my phone...

    Save up to $443 on your energy bills with this simple strategy!

    Thank you. It seems AMBER use a different business model to most. A combination of a subscription cost plus use of wholesale energy cost, mostly by tapping into the cheaper renewable wholesale costs. They also provide an app which updates every 30 minutes on the wholesale prices. And yes I will...

    Save up to $443 on your energy bills with this simple strategy!

    I am about to switch electricity provider and it would seem that if I move to AMBER I can save somewhere between $326 and $381 per quarter. As well I am eligible for a $150 new starter discount spread over 6 months via yello, which is via an affiliation with the CommBank. I'm hoping to get...

    American faces backlash for attacking Australians on healthcare: ‘Nothing is free’

    Fortunately we both have Doctor's within 35 minutes drive time that don't charge even a Zac for a chat. Both are high quality foreign born Doctors who give very sound advice.

    When I see responses like this, it brings out the deeper contrarian in me. What Ngarmada says is appealing to my long held thoughts about Central Banks, the fiat currencies, the US $ as the global currency (before BRICS started doing their bit.) and it's impact upon us folks. It does get tricky...

    Interesting that no response from SDC. Just more of the same Compare Plus AdArticles though. Personal experience leaves not much doubt, imo, that Compare Club is a crock to be avoided for all the reasons others have already articulated. I understand why one would use the words "to foist its...

    Authorities recall fridges over fire hazard—are you at risk?

    Interesting how quality control is now placed in the domain of the consumer. Given the article mentions multiple fires and injuries, seems fair to say Electrolux and Beefeaters will be paying out more than refunds. Might be out of style, but it would be difficult for the old ice tub to self...

    A cunning bank scam wipes out couple's $240,000 life savings—are your funds at risk, too?

    Seems to me to be strong anecdotal evidence from one who has been through the unfortunate event process that the transferring bank does have a duty of care to protect it's customers. It's not a difficult process for them to check if the training and willingness are there. As I understand it...

    A cunning bank scam wipes out couple's $240,000 life savings—are your funds at risk, too?

    What sticks in my mind is that would any of us rely on the opinions of a teller regarding the safety of all our life savings? However, in my opinion, the tellers initial review of the emails was insufficient. Suncorp did not do enough in the verification process, given it has a duty of care to...

    Royal downfall? Sources reveal Prince Andrew's grim life post-controversy

    There's a lot one can learn from Rob44. I can barely remember the last time I had this much fun jousting and gaining knowledge at the same time. How was that bit about the reasons for the French getting cleaned up in Vietnam linking into the local knowledge of tree cover linking into modern day...

    Royal downfall? Sources reveal Prince Andrew's grim life post-controversy

    It wood'na surprise me if the described bush sheila's had a big impact upon the naïve young bloke. Afta all, he did marry one (her family called her Lorraine) afta failing with a regular one. I ken that cold skilly, not ground by the hands of Highland sprites (thou nearby), would make a poor...
