Scamming the Nigerian scammer

The Age had a report today about someone  Scamming the Nigerian scammer.
Revenge is sweet.   But how does it fit in with the Golden Rule?   Not too well would be my guess!   It’s more like someone giving the Nigerian scammers a practical demonstration  in why living by the Golden Rule is a good idea.   It may not be  the right thing to do, but it sounds like fun.   Let’s think of it as an educational experience in an uncontrolled environment.

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule  – In other words:

“Do to others as you would have them do to you”

Definitely something worth thinking about, and living by.   How much different would life be?

Stumps . . .

Another week and another milestone – stumps, and the first progress payment.
No photos from the back, as you can see it is rather muddy. Even the builders seem to think so with their pallet bridge into the garage.

Krispy Kreme has landed

After  opening 2 year’s ago Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are opening in  Victoria tomorrow (22/6/06).   Now this doesn’t mean a great deal to me, but listening to the way people are reacting at work you would think that it is a life-changing event!   It was not entirely unknown for anyone flying in to Sydney to told to do a pick-up from the Sydney  Airport.   In other words, people are Airfreighting Doughnuts around Australia.

On the radio on the way home, Hamish and Andy on Fox FM offered the person at the front of the queue to the new Fountain Gate store $500 and a packet of supermarket cinnamon doughnuts.   The woman refused – they might be good doughnuts – but what was this woman thinking?  

Apparently Krispy Kreme do normally give the first person through the front door a year supply of doughnuts – doughnuts v. $500.  I know which way I would go, the $500 and a night in my own bed – especially as the temperature is likely to be close to freezing tonight.   Perhaps that is the accountant coming through there.

The wikipedia give you some idea about why everyone is getting excited – all I can see is the potential for a really BIG suger fix.


Floor Level

We have just about hit floor-level now. The back wall is already over my head – so we are going to have a good storage area under the house. The only thing that isn’t started is the garage. The whole site is a bit on the squishy side now that we have started to get some rain – especially the storage area at the back of the house which is about the only level part of the entire block!
At the moment we seem to be going through one of the small phases – but I’m sure that is going to pass quickly as the walls continue to rise and the floor goes down.
