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

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.
