Victorian Election results for 2010

For those interested in the election results, if you go to the VEC site (Victorian Electoral Commission) you can view the latest results for each region and district. I find the coverage on the television to be all over the place and doesn't give me the information I'm interested in.

By using the VEC site I was able to watch the count tally as it was occurring for my district. There was none of the quite verbose chit chat you get from TV, just the results as they occur.

Alert: Job offer as a mystery shopper - Leon Kirkland

Today I received an email with the subject Job offer as a mystery shopper so I decided to investigate.

OzEfilter showed me this email was sent from Spain. The domain Leon is using for the return email address was associated for France and the email address uses a Polish domain which was set up many years ago with Polish servers.

The email is targeted at Australians with an offer of AUD2200 per month and a company car on demand. My real concern is the information being request which includes CV/Resume and recent photo would be the type of information people could use for identity theft. There is no additional information provided on the company sending the email.

I would highly recommend deleting this type of email. If you are interested in becoming a mystery shopper I would suggest researching for a local company and checking them out first.

Alert: Download New Skype VoIP Software - More Free Talks

I received a number of emails purporting to be new software from Skype. This software is not from Skype and you should not download the software.

The domain uses name servers which appear to be based in Russia.

I'd recommend deleting the emails.

VOTE 1: Kelvin ELDRIDGE - Bulleen district

Some of you may have noticed the phrase Authorised by: Kelvin Eldridge, 12 Stradmore Avenue Templestowe 3106 appearing on posts I've recently written. The reason is I'll be running in the next state election as an independent for the Bulleen electorate.

For those interested in what I stand for and why I'm standing, visit Over the next couple of weeks I'll also be posting articles on a blog specifically about my election experiences once I'm official a candidate.

In order to ensure there is no conflict of interest, all posts until after the election will carry the above phrase.

Firefox users paying more for loans

Now this is the first time I’ve heard of a site charging a different interest rate based on the browser a person is using, but it doesn’t surprise me. Whilst this is not in Australia, some overseas trends do end up coming to Australia.


Apparently the bank's loan-offering robot doesn't think much of Firefox users.

Aloe vera MLM business opportunity

For a couple years, a colleague and good friend of mine, Renée Barber, has been using a number of aloe vera based products including aloe vera juice drinks as well as topical aloe vera gels and creams. These natural products have been attributed to providing many benefits including improving digestion, assisting with weight loss and improving skin tone and appearance.

The company, Forever Living, that creates these products pioneered the use of pure aloe vera gel in its patented process and provides a MLM business opportunity in 145 countries. It has been in business for over 25 years and has about 9 and a half million distributors.

Renée and Forever Living both believe that prevention is better than cure, and that health is wealth, so to try these natural products yourself, simply order online and they will be delivered to your doorstep.

You can find Renée on the Warrandyte JustLocal page
