Moving: box yourself in with this?

Many families move house at Christmas time and this professional removalist’s box is sure to come in handy. We had it professionally constructed to move 5 cubic metres of our furniture across half the country (Victoria to Outback Queensland) and now it’s ready for its next user. Only $300 to purchase and free pick-up in Longreach. The box — technically called a “lift van” — can be shipped by rail to you but the shipping will be extra. Phone John on 0413 004 138 or email now.

The journey’s the thing …

And so the royal progress back to Queensland begins today with a luxurious session at the Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa. Dreamy soak in the mineral salt pool followed by a sauna and hours being buffetted by bubbles. After a dramatic few months, we’re off to launch our new online education business Edupreneur Services International. If you have an interest in international vocational or tertiary education content and policy, you have an interest in us. And we have a regular blog too, which accepts comments so speak up. Our itinerary over the next two weeks includes Sale, Bermagui, Maitland, Armidale, Brisbane, Roma and finally Longreach. See you on the road. John and Pip

Vline poor again

And so it goes — the 8:53 to Melbourne has been delayed and they now hope it will be more like the 9:20 if we’re lucky … Official reason? “Defective locomotive”

Vline unsatisfactory service

Train customers along the Ballarat line are riding buses again this morning thanks to the Victorian government owned Vline train operator. The scheduled train services are unexpectedly being “replaced” with bus services even though buses were only supposed to run Friday to Sunday — so we Ballan commuters get to start our day grumpy instead of relaxed.

UPDATE: buses continued as “replacements” in the evening. I caught a bus 30 minutes earlier than my normal train but still arrived home at Ballan about 6pm proving that the bus is nowhere near a “replacement” … it’s a poor substitute.
