November 2016 Watt’s News  

The Melbourne Cup has been run and while I had no bets on it, I must say that the spring carnival really does make you appreciate being Australian.  Where else in the world would you get a whole Tuesday off for a 3.5 minute horse race and have it accepted that you will take the Monday off too.  I might not know who won the race, but I did enjoy the 4 day weekend.  What a great country we live in. 


No ‘Air Jordan’, just James.

James has a picture of basketball legend Michael Jordan hanging on his office wall and for those of you who haven’t heard, James did an ACL in his knee trying to emulate the great man the other week.  Surgery might be avoided if rehab does the trick, so if you can help out to reduce the stress he puts on it when he visits, it would be greatly appreciated. Firstly he won’t risk injuring it further, but more importantly, as we are running a book on how much weight he will gain while laid up, your help and full cream milk every coffee he drinks should get me over the line.


Australia Wide Osram Headlight Globe Shortage: 

Lucky for daylight savings, as most of Australia waits for Osram to get their act together and supply us with stock.  Osram has decided to get out of sales and has assigned specific distributors for all of their automotive globes, but unfortunately they appear to have forgotten to supply anyone any stock.  We are hopeful to have a full range of globes again soon, but it is out of our hands.


China Trip:

James and I are heading off to China at the end of this month for an Industry Trade Show to hopefully find the next big thing to help you all out.  It is our aim to meet with a number of suppliers to help increase our range, so keep an eye out for more new products in the very near future. 


Joke of the month

A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children.  "You all appear to have various obsessions" he observed.
To the first mother, Mary, he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy"
He turned to the second mother, Ann "Your obsession is with money. Again it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny"
He turned to the third mother, Kathy "Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child's name, Brandy"

At this point, the fourth mother, Joyce, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered "Come on Dick, this guy has no idea what he's talking about.

Have a great month

Happy New Year, financially speaking! For most of us, it’s not nearly as exciting as the New Calendar Year celebrations, but I guess that’s because we are not accountants.  To them, it seems better than the Grand Final, Christmas Day and Birthdays all rolled into one.

Before writing the word June in this edition of Watts News, I was pretty sure winter was officially here, because my 16 y/o son wore long pants for the first time this year.  Also with the amount of cable, lights and accessory plugs we have sent out recently, I can only assume you have all been finishing off Grey Nomad setups so they can head north to avoid the cold.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be so young that you don’t notice the cold, or better still, old enough to feel it, but not too old that you can’t escape from it.
