I am an Australian.

Our attitude is much more like,
The flag is the government’s flag,
If they want it flown, let them fly it.

We only have a little one sitting inside a window in a vase along with a larger small version of the flag of Mrs Tim’s first country.

No more live performances by Pink Floyd, they flogged the guitars for a song, or a few.

Pretty similar weather here to what you described. Last week was mostly rainy around Oxford. But this morning it had been dry for long enough that the narrow path near the church, to get in from a nearby street, not the main way in, had that train station smell about it. Not nice.

All the other things you can do, you should be able to set up a spreadsheet to calculate the best time in the next few years to do the transactions.


Some of the items of fixed, such as the mortgage payments. The amount at the sale time depends on when it is, but can be predicted. Also, yo0u pay between now and when you sell is predictable.


Market value of both houses is hard to predict. Are both affected by the same market - commuting to similar places, or are they affected by different factors. You could predict rates, and set up sensitivity analysis for the rates in each area.


You could really dive into the black art of accountancy where, regardless of what happens to your bank account you could convince yourself you made a profit or a loss, depending on which answer you want.


Do houses of the kind you want in the other area get offered for sale frequently, and do houses in your area sell promptly?


This is a hard decision, and you want to do it when you choose, not when your are forced by either your own health or finance (and finance has the more insidious effect).

You have almost done the Realtor's wordsmithing for them. Make sure you get a discount on their services for that.


BTW: that picture made me think - is that the Realtor's picture or the real picture? Makes the place look nice.


Sounds tough enough to withstand some pretty big storms, not like those ex-houses we see on news fairly often after storms went through the mid-west.

That was a little before the king's head came off and all the king's men and all the king's horse could not put it back on.


A pretty brutal period of the history - about 10% of the national population died during that war. 300,000 out of 3,000,000.

Hope you get a good offer soon.

I am on the other side of that deal now. Very few houses are coming on the market at the moment. That means ever since January hardly anyone has offered a house for sale in the part of town we are looking at - about 1 mile by 3/4 mile. With house plots as small as they are that is a very small proportion.

It is so hard to get environmental analysis right. Every question asked raises issues not thought about before. I remember European governments bleating so loudly about diesel being better than petrol because less is burned per mile, less CO2, that their message was heard in Australia but now, after VW, they are punishing the people who listened and bought diesel, believing they were doing a good thing with extra tax etc.

I remember seeing a few others play. Dean Jones 212 at Adelaide, v WI. And the same day Tim May 24, a PB, and Merv Hughes 89, really something to be there in person. Before Adelaide Oval was turned into a cookie cutter stadium.

In the UK there is usually mizzle. Very rarely is there even what in Australia is called heavy rain, let alone the tropic storms in Singapore or even more extremely further away from the equator, like in Taiwan.


The English invented cricket, a game which can only be played in dry weather. This seemed like such a paradox to Australians. I finally worked out why they invented cricket. Cricket is a socially acceptable excuse for sitting in the pavilion drinking pints.

Or is it just that there are too many entrepreneurial scammers all injuring themselves just enough to have proof of an event just so they can sue the pants off you.

Are you telling us reports about the Blues parade route or are you there giving a first hand account.


This makes a serious difference to how an historian may use the statement you just provided way out in the future.

So your explanation of the passing out can now be that you were too fit. The people I saw passing out were men who do a lot of training exercise and are very fit.
