For many, today will signal the commencement of the Melbourne Cup long weekend.  Even businesses that are open on Tuesday (like ours ☹), do their best to tune in at 3.00pm to the ‘race that stops a nation’ from Flemington Racecourse.

In local news, Alcoa successfully demolished the Anglesea power station this week following a failed attempt eaqlier this year .  A crowd of people gathered near the exclusion zone to watch the decommissioned … Continue Reading »

The AFL finals are here.  Of course, not everyone is happy about this, but for the majority of us it’s an exciting time.  It also means that school holidays aren’t far away and even a long weekend to celebrate the Grand Final.  Where else but Victoria?

Westpac this week moved to raise its mortgage rate and experts believe it’s inevitable that the other big banks will follow its lead.  Indeed, many claim it’s been inevitable for the past six months.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has suggested Westpac customers should change banks if they are not happy.  Prime Minister Scott Morrison?  Yes, that’s right.  We also changed Prime Ministers this week.  Yes, I hear you saying ‘I didn’t … Continue Reading »
