"Talking Heads - Slippery People"

Definitely the track of the afternoon.....being playing this on repeat more than a few times for obvious reasons when you listen to the lyrics

"Life 2.0" the next 45 years

Good link for people to understand what I had and how that if the tumor can be completely removed by surgery then GIST is curable.

We are still waiting for followup but the prognosis at this stage is because of GIST’s size and location was completely removed with Saturdays surgery (along with 1/3rd of my stomach which has a lot of implications)

The part that really motivates me is what do I do with the next 45 years of my “Life 2.0” now that I would have been dead on Saturday the 25th of April 2015 except for the fact that I happen to have lived in the 1st world where the science and technology happen to exists to “cure me“ to the point that here I am 5 days later…sleeping a lot but basically life as normal is starting again.

To be honest I’m a little pissed at Bernie Sanders and his position on the TPP and the insistence the first world has of their right to continue raping third world resources in an effort to keep up big screen tv's,  a/c’s and cheap clothes in Walmarts while refusing to share technology access to benefit other “Dean’s” around the world who had the same thing and would prefer not to be dead after Saturday the 25th of April 2015.

The TPP is a good thing folks, if nothing else all the calamity of NAFTA from Americans years ago shows you how even after all the complaining it turned out USA benefited more than anyone else.

To be really honest I'm not sure why we aren't more evolved as humanity (I mean if we can write about star trek and evolved political systems where we've evolved past blowing up rocks where linked hydrocarbon atoms happen to be abundant......why cant we get there politically??).

lol this being said....realized I needed a 1hr nap at 9am this morning after boiling an egg/eating a slice of toast/ and 1/2 cup of ensure and sorting the mail accumulated over the last week but then bright eyed and ready to go at 10am to walk the dog and pick up some things from cvs.

It was really nice to see todays sunrise

Just posted quick update on facebook…..crazy that I’m here at home on Tuesday evening just 4 days after last Saturday’s surgery (and less than 13 days of symptoms first showing up in the first place).


April 25th 2015 is going to be a day I long remember as “when I naturally should have died”……but not this time J


Feeling all good, will post more later.

Have you?

So who has been a naughty naughty boy….has it been you?

I think this one will go down in the books like Buffett’s “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked”.

Remember folks……capital growth doesn’t service debt……only rental yields can do that.

#NowWatching #CitizenFour been putting it off for the last week and has been sitting on the hard drive glaring it at me, 20 minutes in been swearing at the tv pretty much every few minutes.

Hey Obama hope and change my ass. I can't believe no one is in jail from this.

BTW one of the best Snowden articles I've read on Snowden -

Aero Snap using windows key + arrows

Wow I didn't know this before

Windows-Arrow Keys: Aero Snap
Type Windows-Left Arrow and the active application will shift to fill the left half of the screen. Windows-Right sends it to the right, Windows-Down places it in the middle of the screen, and Windows-Up maximises. It’s a really handy option when you want multiple application windows neatly arranged (such as copying information from a web page into a spreadsheet or document).

Australian governments now want a "land tax" to fill their coffers

In response to.....

Jessica Irvine​

You are either...
1/ a short sighted renter
2/ a paid mouthpiece
3/ or a terrible economist.

I'm leaning towards all three as you are clueless when you say land tax isn't movable - of course it is, people will choose to sell and purchase other investments (eg equities....oh look a bubble over there now).

Capital is always moveable.

As for "its ok will only apply to the investors" how do you figure will only get added to rents and drive up living costs.

Better to stick with the current system which discourages speculation with its "front end transaction costs" than to allow the governments hand in your pocket each and every year with a "land tax".

Considering how the Australian federal and state governments are encouraging rampant inflation in housing costs....saying that they now want to implement a broad based land tax is pure hypocrisy.

When are people going to finally learn that inflation is government theft, pure and simple. To understand that is to understand why governments are acting in this irresponsible manner.

I suggest you cover items other than finance (or spend some time educating yourself in the basics).

April 7th interest rate cut?

Nuts if they do -

Love how politicians wring their hands saying property prices are going too high.....but then drop interest rates.
