Melbournians – you’re doing it tough right now

But you are tough people. Many of you have never been out of work in your lives before.
Yes – that’s a worry.
You and the kids are confined to the house?
That’s a BIG worry.
And there’s not even the footy to cheer you up!
Now that is an even BIGGER worry!
So, we’d say, without a doubt – you are REALLY doing it tough.
But, seriously, all this worry. Is it really going to solve anything?
What is the most important thing? Easily answered – that your family stays healthy, both physically and mentally.
Your confinement, and that of your children, may be lengthy.
In Italy, where COVID-19 caused the most concern, valuable lessons were learned about children’s education.

Those ten tips – food for thought aren’t they? And while thinking ‘food’, how about a backyard BBQ or two.
Most people are going to need LP gas for their BBQ, but more importantly, most people are going to need to save cash.
Here’s how you do both if you live reasonably close to Melbourne’s Noble Park.
Our friend of many years, John Farah, owns the Halton Road Convenience store.
For as long as we can remember, John has been refilling BBQ gas bottles. And doing it cheaper, more consistently than anyone else in Melbourne.
Today, John will refill your 9kg gas bottle for $16 – that’s right – $16! Do you realise that is $11 cheaper than a Bunnings’ swap? And theirs are only 8.5kg!
Of course, your bottle must be ‘in date’ and in good condition (read our blog about that). Plus you’ll need a safety plug.
When you call in just say to John “Found on GBR“. No, no – not Great Barrier Reef silly 😂🤣 Gas Bottle Refills Dot Com!
By the way – if you don’t live near Noble Park but have friends or family that do, please ring and tell them about this terrific gas price.
