Friday Mood Music

Been a long time since I did a Friday mood music post... got motivated when this track came up on random rotation.....how awesome is Neneh Cherry



I posted a few of my other favorites up as well over there <-------- but have a listen to Somedays and tell me it doesn't get you thinking.



Blackstone rental investments

Would have been a better article if you could find out what rental return Blackstone was able to get from those 10,000 units.

Even if the rent after operational expenses was low.....would still probably be better than T bills.

Sydney transportation

I've said it before and i'll say it again....Sydney is already facing a transportation crisis and light rail/trams/boats ARENT the solution.

NSW/Sydney politicians need to bite the bullet and implement underground railway lines NOW.

Its never going to be cheaper than it is today....so whilst its easy to kick the can down the road its far smarter to start digging today and fast.

Amazon predictive edge delivery

And that folks is why Amazon is going to eat the world.

Same day delivery of a piece of technology hardware (fairly specific too a Zyxel USG 110 - http://amzn.to/14sqtg9  ), ordered at 2.50pm says hey free delivery in 3 days or $9.95 for same day delivery. Its now 7.28pm and just got delivered.

Predictive edge delivery really works.
