Medibank International - Sydney

Tonight we are off to the tennis, thanks to S&M for their Christmas present to us. Hopefully it will cool down a little and the rain keeps away. It should be a good contest between E. DEMENTIEVA and D. SAFINA (Marat's little sister).

I will be taking some picuters and blogging them live. Hope you enjoy the show.

Cute Ragdoll

I know buying cats or dogs from a pet store is a big no no but kittens are irresistable.

Tripod Shopping

As usual it gets very dangerous when I am on holidays and at home as far as spending goes. I get these projects in my head and then I go on the hunt.

Today I decided to go tripod shopping and I am hoping that I got a fairly good bargain.

After a long scout which took me to 2 Paxtons, 2 JB HIFIs, Ted's Photographics, 2 Dick Smiths and others I ended up going to Harvey Norman. Now usually I stay away from Harvey as I think their prices are over inflated and then they give you 30 years interest free, but today I was pleasantly surprised.

After many of the pro shops telling me that there is no way I could get a Manfrotto Tripod (recommended by S&M) under AUD $300 ($200 for the legs and at least $100 for a basic head) I had almost given up.

Back at Harvey Norman I was able to get the following:
Manfrotto 190XDB legs
Manfrotto 484RC2 head
Manfrotto 790B Monopod

for the grand total of ..................................................................................................................................$175.

P.S. Just Checked B&H for prices, US$272.55 (includes Shipping) :)

A visit to Mum and Dad's wouldn't be complete without a cute pic of Tiny. He is a very spoilt little dog who thinks that he is the boss. Sometimes I think he's right.
