That watermelon probably cost a few ounces over there

well, it depends
the one I bought cost me about $17

something like this in one of the SUPERmarkets for crazy rish costs about 60000 yen ... that's about $650
that's 20 oz of silver ...
Who told that one cannot eat silver?? lol

when I first came to Japan and noticed it I thought it was fake or made of something to justify the price ... when my wife told me that it was real thing I put the first mark in my head about crazy japanese )))

phew, banana is relic ... no one needs them ... and even if central banks hold them it is just a tradition.
Watermellon - is what the world spins around! lol

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

I bought a shop! neutral well the stock..

So i have been stacking for my family since december 2012, and have about 90 ounces saved but its going to take us many years to build up any kind of half decent stack..I have to try something else to get things turning over faster!..

So we just bought this lot for £400, a massive investment for my family. Mabey just Mabey it will pay off and lead to new investments:) or mabey it will sink and lose time and money, one thing i know is risks do need to be made in any kind of investments and its one we are willing to take, job lot of fashion jewelry from auction, all new stock, the sellers business is changing to selling something else more viable for a retail premises . Collecting next week. Have certainly dived into the deep end headfirst with this but i have done some market research first.

Wish me luck!

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

Just got her yesterday. She's 8 weeks old and doesn't have a name yet. She's so small that when she tries to go up the stairs she falls back down them because she can't get up them. I had to get another german shepherd since the last one was such a great dog.

They are lovely dogs. Can't blame hip problems on breeders when they fall down stairs/dropped as a puppy.
Have fun.

Her ears stay up which i find a little weird. My last german shepherds ears were always down when she was that age.

She only makes it up to the 2nd stair. We've put up a baby gate to stop her from trying.

Traded with Oz for them a while back but your nice little Zombie made me desire to post an image of mine.

753_p9050007.jpg

A "Matchbox" Lesney Series 34 Volkswagon Campervan Made in England, note two swinging doors and orange "dinette" inside. There are only 4 billion of these left in the world. lol

753_p9050009.jpg

And a A "Matchbox" Lesney Series 64 MG1100, note pale looking blob in the back is a hound (working dog by the fall of its jawline and its pricked ears), there is also a steering wheel, a driver and a towbar complete with towball as it was never chewed off. Half tennis ball is missing though. There would only be about 7 billion of these left on the planet in original condition. wink

Next to worthless but a novelty nonetheless.

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

I bought a Ryobi 36volt battery powered chainsaw.

Don't laugh.  These 36 volt implements don't ask...they take.
All the power of a petrol powered tool without the noise, weight or stink or mess of petrol powered stuff.
I don't have to worry about gummed up carbys or sparkplugs after leaving them for a while or spending half the morning getting them going instead of using them for what they're intended.  I can throw it into the back of the 4WD and clear tracks without the hassle of carrying a messy petrol powered unit around.... or attracting attention to myself. wink

So far I've used the one battery charge to whipper snip my 1.5+ acre property, then used the leaf blower to clear a 100 metre long driveway AND THEN chainsawed a dozen 10cm thick branches...and the battery wqs still 75% charged!!!

^ +1

Got the Ryobi +1 six pack of tools the other week, only the 18 v version but well worth the $ at 400 for the kit.

Grinder, multi tool, impact drill, drill, saw, and a torch plus two battery's and charger. Bloody handy for all sorts of jobs around home and at the farm and saves dragging a geny around on short jobs as well.

Re: What did you buy today , of the non PM range

I bought three of the electronic vibration snake repellent things to add to the one that we already have. I don't think they really work as advertised but I know that it provides some comfort to the wife which means my life is a little easier.

I've never seen a worse snake season. They're everywhere, and getting bolder & hungrier and getting into buildings etc either in search of food or to escape the heat.

They're everywhere out in the 'big office' where I work... I make as much noise as I can (kicking rocks and thumping the ground...and occasionally falling over hmm ) but still see a lot of them skittering away just under foot.  I've started using my phone to play music as I'm walking around too... doesn't seemed to do much so far but makes the day more enjoyable.

So far I've had 2 taipans in my water tank pump covers have a go at me and last night I picked up a 6ft long brown snake skin in my shed.

They'll bloody well be the death of me.

Snakes are deaf so unless you are playing your phone music REALLY LOUD they won't notice.

Apparently the dry weather means the grass dies unless you water it, so all the insects come to the watered lawns, which attracts the lizards and spiders and rodents which in turn attract the snakes.

A few years back during the drought a woman got a spider bite in Brisbane but the medics refused to believe it was a funnel web as they don't live in the city.  A proper search of her well watered back garden revealed about 17 of the buggers.  http://www.acem.org.au/media/media_rele … 281107.pdf

Not just the land either, they've already started pulling box jellyfish out of the sea early this year... there's been a croc sighted in Mackay's harbour, I routinely see sharks longer than my kayak... what's next...swimming knives?!?!
