Still house hunting

Daughter Helen is getting desperate to find a suitable unit to live in after getting an eviction notice at her current place on Cottesloe Beach. Today she asked us to go with her to view a unit with sweeping river and harbour views. Great place on three levels with almost all rooms with a view. She is filling out the application form tonight as no doubt the other four people will be.

The unit was occupied by four single blokes of around 25 years of age. One of them was cleaning up when we inspected the place. There was ample evidence of parties and booze-ups. Exhaust fans greased up and the floor sticky from spilled beer. We hope she wins it and can move in as soon as it is cleaned up.

I am still having problems setting up an ADSL connection for a colleague's disabled son.The modem is trying to talk to the ISP but as they say...the lights are on, but nobody's home. We, a friend and I, believe that telecom has not yet switched us on at the exchange. The ISP says we are connected, but we have tried two different modems without success. I am waiting for a phone call from the disabled man's father saying that a connection has been established. At 68 I am getting a little old for such problems.
