In these trying times good investment advice is hard to come by - but this made a LOT of sense.

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago, you would have $49 left.

With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000.

With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminium recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle

John,

By the weaving your vehicle is doing in the attached water crossing photo it looks like you had been emptying a can or two.

Boy! Oh! Boy! Do you need a life!
At least look at the stars as you sit around a campfire at night! They never diminish! Ha, Ha, Ha :-) - now what is the symbol for rolling around laughing! Fancy working that one out. It is amazing! Can I copy it to work please!

Now that I have settled down - it sure makes one think doesn't it. Also - is that under the new South Aust. can etc deposit regime of 10c a container, or under the old one of 5c a container - even then it was still worthwhile doing some pick ups.

We certainly do our bit re can pick ups - mostly thrown into the 'A' frame mesh after which the cans are squashed and bagged for the bin at home. Lil' ol' ali nuggets now at 10c each! :-) Yep! even if marked 5c deposit if sold in South Australia, one will get 10c.

Cheers - Ian & Sally

Have a friend who has a business next to a scrap metal merchant. All sales have stopped due to a screw up in the financial process this stuff goes through when it's shipped overseas.
A bloke turned up the other day with a truckload of crushed cans and he left them there without payment. Looks like the business will have to shut up shop.
