So what is this rubbish I hear that the Indian cricket team reckons the Aussies have lost the sting in there bowling line up?
At what stage did the Indian TEAM have the Australian TEAM in trouble?
At no stage where the Indian's leading the match, but there where times when the Aussies had a chance.

Brother Boxhead thanks Bernie.

It is all true, we are members of the Bretheren (is that how you spell it?)

The stories about chickens blood and goats is all true

Any-one got Kevin Rudd's phone number?.

Just had a call from my accountant to advise me exactly how much my super investments have lost in the past 6 months. Don't check yourself unless you want to spoil your day.

This is the compulsory component that is usually invested with some super fund trustee who is supposed to know what they are doing and who charge us fees for their services.

What gets me is that component of my investments is the ONLY part which has failed to make a return this year. In fact the reduction has wiped out all the returns from the past 5 years.

I know in time it will make a turnaround but hell, the investments I have made outside of this super have all returned a nice result, and I'm no investment guru.

Any-one wanna tell me why I should pay so much in fees to these twits only to get a negative result.

Les, basically anyone exposed to the share market has been hammered and it will get worse. Cash and gold bullion are about the only safe bets at the moment! Forget Rudd's handouts this week, we've got 2-3 years of pain ahead and a few grand extra here and there will do very little in the big scheme of things. That's the advice I'm hearing from banker friends and an analyst in a large firm. I feel really sorry for those about to retire - my friend's Mum lost an entire year's salary sacrifice to super last year and she is now looking to keep working well into her 60s.

Regarding super fees, move your super into an industry fund ASAP - you've seen the ads on TV! MTAA is a good one.

I'm not overly concerned Sambo.

My gripe is that these bluddy super companies charge fees to manage these funds. They should be cognitive of where the greatest returns are and to move funds to where ever they do most good.

Ie. As we know shares are currently volatile, so why should they not have moved the funds to cash investments. In other words, properly earn their fees.

As I said, I'm no professional investor but those investments I have outside of these trustees have performed much, much better than the professionals.

Les, I feel your pain. As with all these mega dollar payouts to bank execs, it should be more performance based.

I've moved from investing in a share portfolio to investing in workshop machinery. Either option I won't have any money when I retire but at least with machinery I'll have something to do.

Hey Les,

Did you hear abou the share trader on wall St who was asked after the market carnage how he was. "Terrible!" he replied. "It is worse than a divorce."

"How is that?" asked the journalist.

He replied "I have lost 1/2 my net worth AND I STILL HAVE my wife!"



Les remember it only took about 2 years to bounce back after the 1987 crash... So that should take you through to ... around 75???
Hang in there Les

regards

Mick

Hehehehe, now that's what I call good financial advice. My missus costs me an arm and leg and the return on investment seems to diminish the longer she's around.

Mick, I feel better today ... I've just read what Marc Faber wrote in his June 2008 Boom, Gloom and Doom Report on the Bush bailout. I have edited it for local content. Quote:

"The federal government is sending pensioners a $1400 rebate. If they spend that money at Harvey Norman, the money goes to China. If they spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs.If they buy a computer it will go to India. If they purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. If they purchase a good car it will go to Germany. If they purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the Australian economy.

The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and xxxx beer, since these are the only products still produced in Oz. "

Now I'm no pensioner but I think I'll start doing my bit early and hope things get better for when I do retire....That's if I live that long.

I was wondering that when i posted so I used Bundy Rum rather than xxxx.

However, It appears that xxxx is owned by Lion Nathan which is listed on the ASX.

So .... given that Bundy Rum is poison, and turns mild mannered rebels into monsters, then I'll edit my post to xxxx beer.

Cheers

That's ok Mike. The place is so deep in recession that I believe George Bush is gonna buy the place.

He wants somewhere to send all the Wall Street execs who caused the sub-prime crisis so they can do to sheep what they did to the world economy.

That's a good one.

So am I reading this correctly, the "Bundy Rum" is not good and the "xxxx beer" is okay?

That makes sense.
