    Help please

    There's always that interim period between getting the licence and what are you supposed to do? Catch 22. They want local references for work but you are not supposed to be working. Most arrivals work whilst completing the licence. Yes, there are rules and regs but the reality is that they are there to protect the customer from shonky operators, not newbies who are going through the system to get registered. Trade work is plentiful at the moment. Carpenters, painters, builders. It can change but don't listen to the negativity. In this field of work there are jobs.

    Short Term Rental

    You are kidding, right? Two hundred bucks for an unfurnished would be a miracle unless you wanted real dodgy. Have you done your sums and do you know just how expensive it is to live here?

    Tourism news.

    Our main tourism season is about to go into overdrive. Despite the numbers I am still amazed that we don't have packed beaches and public spaces. Lucky that we moved to this state I guess.

    Wanted: Families for "nanny trial"

    This sounds like such a good scheme for all those people struggling to balance work and children. How many workers on here will consider applying for it? The benefites look really good.

    Just a heads up - Fuel (again)

    The price has stuck at $1.19. I expected it to go down over the weekend but it didn't. How do you forecast the future price?

    Is anyone considering leaving SA?

    We totally love it here and have settled. What's with the avo debate? London must be an exciting place if all you have to think about is how much fruit and veg used to cost when you lived here. It's a fact that many people don't settle and end up moving back. Always has been and always will be. If it's not for you that's fine but getting locked in to running down the place because of your experiences is just crazy. Australia is expensive. That's the way it is. If you are looking for cheap living then go and live Bali. As a total package Adelaide is great. It's not for everyone but then again where is? It's so sad to read posts from people who can't move on. Put it behind you and get on with living in your new world and not the online forum world. If you can't move on then go and seek therapy and learn to put your past behind you. It's just so sad.

    Retail Jobs in the next 6 months: Seaford and Noarlunga

    Do you know how many stores bunnings will be opening in Adelaide this year? This is good news for the economy although I hear that Masters is losing millions. Thats not good news because competition is good.
