    Are there hotels out there with a "toy box"? Or is this just an urban myth? I saw it on an episode of CSI: Miami so it must be real! More about Beginner Bondage Toys

    I think someone's been watching one too many movies with cool CGIs. That truck, is it even a truck, is just insane! Cool, but insane. What does it cost to run? Not that I imagine anyone that gets one cares about running costs. More about The New SublimeNZ Promo Car

    "Talent" sounds cool. Tho' I see we already have a recruitment firm up the road from work called "Talent2".

    How about "Populus". I think if I remember correctly that's Latin for "people". Or "Demos" for the Greek version. Too poncy?

    HR. Hmm, I vaguely remeber having an HR dept around. They're all based in Australia now believe it or not!

    There's a great Dilbert cartoon from some years back. The Pointy Haired Boss says that they were wrong in thinking that employees were a company's most important asset. Turns out that money was a company's most important asset. Employees were only the 9th most important asset. Someone, probably Wally, asks what was the 8th most important asset. PHB answers with .... carbon paper.

  • Ultimate Ears Super.Fi 5 Pro earphones by Logitech

    Those headphones sound sweet. However I love my Logitech FreePulse bluetooth headphones. They're cordless, and actually have amazingly good sound with Bluetooth 2 technology. Both the transmitter and headphones are compact and recharable.

    Unfortunately they're not that robust and I'm on my 3rd replacement pair. But I'm prety active and these are fantastic with no cords to get tangled up. With regular headphones I always find I'm ripping them off either my head or my ipod.

    I wish there was a bigger range of bluetooth headphones with compact rechargeable transmitters that don't cost the planet. It's a shame that more companies haven't put in any effort to producing them.

  • When Your Kid's Friends Don't Suit You

    I've never had the joy of having kids, just furkids unfortunately. Not that I don't adore my lovely furkids of course! I exepct that if you've been a good parent, always giving support, advice and setting boundaries, your kids aren't going to turn out totally stupid. Your child would probably prefer a kid with similar interests and more alike them. They probably pick horrible friends just to egg you on, and you should ask yourself why. So unless you've brought up a real monster, you can probably put a bit of faith in your kid's choice of friends.

    The Martinborough Vineyard Te Tera Pinot Noir is simply excellent. We're love their wine so much we bought the company. No, we didn't! But we do have shares in the vineyard. Their Burnt Spur pinot noir is also devine.

    Do go out and buy wine from Martinborough and Burnt Spur! More about Bordeaux beauties

    All I can say is because of the problems with P and pseudoephedrine being used to manufacture it, I now get treated like a criminal every time I try and buy some from my regular pharmacy and it's some zealous baby pharmacist behind the counter.

    After all if they looked up my prescriptions, they'd see that I get prescribed antihistamines, a sniffer to desensitise my nose and eyedrops to desentise my eyes to allergens.

    It's not the stuffy nose that bugs me, I can live with that. It's the splitting sinus headaches when all my drugs fail to stop me reacting to fresh air and sunshine. I simply can't work with that.

    Telling me that phenylephrine is going to work just fine is a total lie. I threw away the first box of that rubbish I bought. And I'm not one to waste anything! It was useless! The drug companies are being unethical producing this rubbish, the pharmacies are no better selling it and telling me it's as good as pseudoephedrine.

    There are studies on how these two active ingredients work and it's negligent of anyone, governments or medical personnel, to promote phenylephrine as being an effective substitute.

    Lastly, where is the pseudoephedrine to make P in NZ coming from? People like me buying a box every few months, or is it coming from overseas in bulk quantities?

    Some real research and good decisions please! More about Futility

  • Win A Night Of Luxury Staying At The Hilton Auckland

    Last post: Catwoman on 14.03.11 at 01:45 | Started by Reuben on 13.05.10

    A nice romantic weekend we had was quite simple. We booked into a nice hotel in town for the weekend. Had dinner there. The next day we relaxed and nibbled on chocs and sipped wine, then went to a show in the evening. Packed up and went to work on monday. No stress, all leisurely.

    Going to a nice hotel in town meant that we didn't have to go far so there were no transport costs. We didn't have the pressure of having places to visit when you go away for a weekend on say Grabaseat. Plus we popped back in on sunday morning to feed the furkids and check on them so I didn't worry that they weren't OK. I'm still paranoid, I went away for a weekend once, came back to find one of the furkids couldn't walk. Rushed him to the emergency vets and he passed away that night.

    I'm definitely a convert and recommend a weekend away in a nice place in town to make sure you get away yet aren't pressured to do too much. More about Win A Night Of Luxury Staying At The Hilton Auckland

  • Couples Retreat on DVD

    I think Vince's last comment says it all about making a funny movie or tv show, "But it's also true that sometimes what you haven't planned ends up being the funniest thing of all!!" Sometimes overtiming and over analysing a funny scene or line doesn't end up being funny at all. How often do you see that on a bad comedy. More about Couples Retreat on DVD

    Perks are widespread everywhere, not just in parliament. I expect many companies give their high ranking employees perks too. It would be good to know just how widespread it is. If they're in government, they wasting your tax money. If they're in the private sector you're probably gettting charged more for their products or losing your investment money to "adminstration" costs.

    I hear all the time about people going on what I'd call junkets - some conference or other. And what's the return on investment on that? It doesn't end there, I wonder how many bring the partner/wife/husband along too without paying for them. Worse still you hear of the whole family going, kids and all.

    What's irked me most of all recently is Hone Harawira and his appalling language and behaviour. He bunked going for what he was meant to be, lied and said he was sick when he didn't go. To top it all off when it was mentioned he attacks people with his appalling manners and language. Then says he's a hot-headed person and that's how he is, he works hard, all his constituents like him, blah blah.

    I don't care how wonderful or useful you are mate, you need to speak and write politely to others. That's just common good manners and anything else is unacceptable and inexcusable.

    If he were white he's be crucified as being racist. He can say what he likes with no ramifications cause he's maori. I'm not a whitey and I still think he's rude and racist.
