sent you a PMhttp://www.westcoastshaving.comAside from buying a stove/oven and dishwasher for Mrs GF I picked up an Aeron chair on sale today quite a good score in terms of the price and tax deductibility of it.

I've read a few books on CD recommendations and reviews and I agree with his assessment however I would add that I found them both incredibly and violently misogynistic, he spares no punches with his crime scene and autopsy descriptions.

I went for a role last week and after they had 100 applicants they took the job down. Mind you there are now 8,000 unemployed APS in Canberra at present.Most panels I have been on interview on average 7 but a bulk recruitment the numbers get a lot higher.Can't have just 1 for an APS job APC rules require transparency and interviewing 1 based on received applications would be seen as nepotism. If it came to that they would simply readvertise.
