Thinking about investing in a property again. Saw a consultant today from The Aldy Group who seem very professional. The consultant was asking about my background as a mortgage broker and investment advisor when I was running Loans n Stuff.

At least I got motivated about the Chocolate again. I started up my tempering machine but had a blackout in between. Don't know if it was the humidity of the process of stopping the tempering machine (power outage) that helped seize the chocolate... but I was not happy!

The person I was hoping would be interested in helping me out on the business as a business manager can't do it (or isn't interested but letting me know politely!) ah well... back to the drawing board.

Was trying to update the catalogue on the site (www.customchocolates.com.au) but getting very frustrated! Next time I think I'll go with an easier option to have a shopping cart site! I'll check out the Yahoo shops for the Shop 4 Gifts site and have to look further into doing something for Bargain Hunter. (Sites TBA)

Heard from Rusty today! He's coming home for Xmas. That will be great. At least we'll catch up with him and Nat!!

Fitness Passport membership locations on a map

My Fitness Passport membership is now live!  Woohoo!  So I get access to a heap of gyms and pools and classes.  For someone who isn't interested in a gym membership I'm not quite sure why I have joined!!  Peer pressure. I'm very fortunate that I have the opportunity to join this type of membership as then I can go just about anywhere in NSW.  The membership site gives you a list of them but I had no idea how close they would be to either work or home so I copied and pasted the details into a Google Sheet and then put them in a Google Map.  I thought it may be useful for others too. You can access the map by this link too:  ​ https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=10hH5PtKlBzeEzV6AoLev4vxqNoDxzR6y&hl=en&usp=sharing

Magic Mirror - IKEA frame hack

Somehow I stumbled on the Magic Mirror project and of course I wanted to build it.  Forget that I was in the middle of another mirror project (still not finished) but this one is now built! Here is the finished product (still a bit messy as I put a small console type table under the mirror):  The console table was added... as I needed to hide the power point from my dogs who like munching on power cables if too accessible.  Before I mounted it on the wall I had it propped up on a dining room chair...  There are plenty of resources on how to get the magic mirror tech side of things done.  The key resource is the Magic Mirror site: https://magicmirror.builders/   I've also used Google a lot and Jayen helped me a lot too on various bits and pieces.   The main thing that is different is the way I put the frame/mirror component together.  Here are the high level details (oxymoron?): 1. bought mirror tint from Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/50x100cm-W

Trip to Kenta

Had lunch with Nikki at Kenta on Thursday 29 Dec 2005. Food was OK, but definitely cheap! Good value. I had the sashimi lunch set which included sashimi, salmon salad, rice and miso soup. Was very full! Meal was approx $10 - $11... here's a pic of what I ate. Nikki had the teriaki chicken and calamari rings meal. That looked good too. And someone at a table next to us had a soft shell crab tempura set. Oooh if only I spotted that :)
