Normally I wouldn't boast, but I think the fact that I paid only 87.9c/litre today (after 4c/litre discount) is worth a mention. (esp since I have been paying > $1/litre for months now)

LED Christmas Lights

After searching for the last 2 years I have finally found some decent LED Christmas Lights in Australia. In previous years I have scoured the department stores, big harwdware chains, small $2 shops, and even the Christmas shop on King George's Road (in Sydney) but no luck. This year I found some in Bunnings at Rockdale imported by "Mort Bay". They are labelled FX multi-colour LED party lights. They are basically a pretty standard string of 48 outdoor Christmas lights, except that they are LED (4 colours - red, orange, green and blue). Standard 8 function control box, and quite bright. Excellent. No mention of this product or the importer on the web, but it seems Mort Bay are based in Balmain NSW if you want to look them up in the white pages.
