Watts News - January 2016

As I write this, we have not quite closed the doors for the Christmas/New Years break, but most of our heads are already well and truly on holidays. As usual, James and I will be heading up the bush with our respective families and the rest of the team at Jay- Dee’s will be spread far and wide. Anthony is taking some Long Service and won’t be back until February, while Karl, Simon and Jeannette will hold the fort in early Jan after a short break, Michelle will also return after an extra weeks’ break. We hope you get to enjoy your time off and all look forward to catching up with you again in the New Year.

On behalf of everyone at Jay-Dee’s we wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2016.

Jay-Dee’s will Re-open on Monday the 4th of January 2016.

As usual we will have a small crew here over the quiet weeks and our office will close each day at 4.30p.m. for the first and possibly the second week depending on demand. Our last Courier pick up is at 4.00p.m., but please take into account that the couriers do less runs per day up until the middle of the month, so don’t order too late.

Oz Charge – OC-JSP16 - Jump Packs are Back:

As many of you are aware the shipping companies were not allowed to carry the Polymer Lithium Batteries due to safety requirements. A loop hole was recently discovered and shipping was allowed for a short period. As a result, Jay-Dee’s has some stock of these great jump packs for those who thought they had missed out. Get in quick if you want some, who knows if we can get any more!

Please remember that in order for us to have the stock on the shelves for when you get back, we really need you to pay for the stock we have already supplied you. Please pay all due accounts.

Australia Post raises price of stamps for a regular letter to $1.00. With the price rise from Australia Post taking effect on January 4th 2016 now is a good time to change your preference from mailed statements to email. We find it is a much quicker way to get you all of your account information quickly & efficiently.

Email Michelle at so she can add yours to our list.

Joke of the Month:

After a really big night on the grog during a New Year's Eve party, a guy by the name of James was in no fit state to drive, so he decided to leave his Ford Territory parked where it was and began the long walk home. He thought he was doing his best to walk in a straight line, but in reality he was just wobbling and staggering along. After observing his drunkenness, the police patrol decided to have a chat to him. The policeman said, “What are you doing out here at four o'clock in the morning?” James thought for a second and slurred out, “I'm on my way to a lecture!” The policeman, not having heard this line before, entertained him and enquired, “And who on earth, in their right mind, is going to give a lecture at this time on New Year's Eve?' James replied, “My wife!”

I hope you get home safe and have a Happy New Year!

I don’t know about you, but I need a break.  It might only be a few weeks since we got back, but not only has the run of hot nights taken its toll, I played as hard as I could over the summer holiday too.  The sad part is that I can still remember burning the candle at both ends in my youth as meaning going out 4 nights in a row until 3a.m., getting up for work and still having the energy to play sport.  Now not wasting a second is staying up until 11.30p.m., dragging yourself to work and snoozing during all of the ad breaks when you get home. Oh well, at least I have the memories; for now!

Over the next few months as we run down our current stock on some of the Osram Halogen Globe range, we will be replacing them with the Tungsram Brand. Industry comparisons and testing have been impressive in relation to quality and overall lifetime of the Tungsram versions, but the big picture comes down to Osram pricing since moving offshore and supplying through agents in Australia.
