Fire Tricks – Video of the week

Everyone for this weeks Video of the week I chose a video of something Matt and I have talk about doing and maybe making a video our self

My favourite trick in this video would have to be the first trick making the flame of the lighter a lot bigger then when you get the lighter the first time because how many time would you use a lighter and the flame be too small then you want it to be at least with this trick you will be able to make the flame to the size of your desire and take it back to the size of the flame when you first got because it was to big to use.

How cool is the third trick using three match sticks tying tin foil around the top of the three matches using a lighter on the tin foil and making it turn into a little rocket. If Matt and I were to make a video using some of these tricks or some of our own this would have to be one i would like to try and so you how we did it.

Another trick I have always wanted to do is light a tealight candle and put on a plate with some liquid on the plate and putting a glass over the top of the candle and getting the liquid up the glass from the plate. The reason it does that is because the oxygen gets taking away from the candle and the liquid go up the the glass because the candle is trying to get some oxygen.

What was your favourite trick and do you think you would try any of these tricks and empress some of your family or friends or just save as a party trick to show what you can do.

Until next time

Fitness Update Week 2

Well its been a busy week which is a good and a bad thing, some days I was up and about constantly and getting good step counts and few others I was flat out at my desk working.

After the big weekend prior to this day moving a whole heap of dirt and stuff the Monday was a real recovery day taking it easy letting the back and legs recover and as a result the step count shows

Tuesday though I was straight back at it taking a couple of long walks throughout the day to ensure that I 10k steps goal not just that though I had green across the board with all goals hit

Another green across the board day, if I didn’t hit all green this day I would have been really disappointed as I spent a number of solid hours working preparing stuff in my front yard

another strong  result here starting to show some real consistency now, getting really active with a few strong step count results in a row its a pity its all down hill from here for the rest of the week 

The last 2 days of the week left a lot to be desired failing to see green in either day in the Fitbit App, at the current time I have also only lost 1 kg, its time to push harder and clear all the yard work that needs to be done across the front and the back yards to free up some time for proper exercise. The next big thing for me to tackle is meal sizes I know today I went way to big with my lunch so portion control is going to be important moving forward if I want to start seeing results on the scales

Forex Trading

I am considering Forex Trading using algorithms based on past history to place automated trades, this is all new to me but with there being a whole heap of information out there and some really positive reviews out there I figure it would be worth giving it a go. My plan is start/risk a very small balance so to find a broker with a minimum deposit of $100 and just trade with that and let my balance and as a result trade amounts and profits grow. Should this plan work I would be looking to not touch any profit from forex trading for the next 6-9 months to hopefully have me earning a solid 1-2k per week if not more.

The brokers I am looking at are

https://www.hqbroker.com

https://www.avatrade.com.au

They both have their pros and cons I was originally going to go with HQbroker I created an account and have been waiting for over a week for one of there experienced brokers to call me to walk me with through how to setup the automated trading. I have contacted there customer service 4 times and keep getting told they will call but I have had no call yet just to be told they are backed up at the moment.

Avatrade look really good but they do not provide you with the algorithm you have to find or develop your own which is a major thing for me, that being said though they do have copy trade option where you can select from a number of real life traders and have there trades copied live. Avatrade is also a whole lot more regulated which is very appealing to me. I guess I will do a little more research to see which one I go with or potentially even find a 3rd company to add to my forex trading list

If you have any suggestions or tips for me here I would love to hear them as I am keen to give forex trading a go very soon

AFL Round 16 Power vs Saints

Everyone with this being a match for Power to keep their chance of staying in the top 4 the need to win if they didn’t win they would of stayed in the 8 but in fifth position.

You will notice at the start of the video that the banner says Steven Motlop that is because he was playing his 150th game in AFL most of those game he played at Geelong but he wanted to go to a club and start enjoying his football again. Steven had a good game racking up 28 disposals and 6 tackles but also helping his team and getting it out of the middle of the ground and to his teammates in the forward line.

Jack Watts was brought back into the side after not playing in the AFL since round 12 and playing in the SANFL instead and kicking 5 goals in the last two rounds in the SANFL that is probably what got back into the side and also helping his team all around the ground.

Charlie Dixon had a very good last quarter kicking three goals and two of those three goals came in a minute and it took his total goals for the match to four goals, He also got 16 disposals and made 3 tackles.

Tom Rockliff was back to his usual self getting the ball and getting it out to his team mates he can see that can get it down the field, he was leading disposal getter for the Power just getting in front of Steven Motlop with 30 he also took 8 marks and made three tackles.

Jared Polec also had an alright game racking up 26 disposals and taking 8 marks but late in the last quarter his was kicking the ball not to any of his teammates that were in sight and it fell short and landed in the hands of a Saints Player.

If you were watching the match what did you think of it and was it a good match.

until next time

Its Been a Long Week

Its been a long week, I have spent most of the week working in my front and backyards getting the backyard ready for my girls to run around in and preparing my front yard for a garden bed and a second driveway put in to stop me from needing to park on the dirt/mud. Its been a whole heap of work, with the help of Kieran we have carried almost two tonnes of loam to the backyard still with about a tonne to go. The two tonnes out the back have no been spread out a ruffly compacted by the girls running all over it. There is still about a third of the back yard to be covered which will hopefully be covered with the remaining tonne of loam out the front.

In addition to this with the help of a mate form work we got the posts in the ground for our retaining wall and went to pick sleepers earlier today, it looks like we are going to get a stacked stone type look retaining wall sleeper. All of this work though in the yard is going to be well worth as discussed in previous posts I definitely need the exercise and I am also saving a whole heap of money by doing as much as possible myself with the help of a few mates. In addition to this I have been keeping up my daily walks at work each day but with the rain most days recently it has been hard to crack the 10k mark each day. I will do a fitness update post sometime over the next day or so to share my progress with you all.

In regards to Mates Madness the changes to site made a few weeks back and we are slowly increasing in traffic both from organic and social referrals so thank you all for sharing our content and directing you family and friends to check us out. As part of the long week I have also got up to a few other things which I will share will in due time so stay tunned.

Cricket Classic catches- Video of the week

Everyone for this weeks video of the week I choose something Matt and I have talked about to do our self maybe not to this extreme but something similar

My favourite catch and one I would like to attempt is the first with him diving to his right and getting it one handed it is probably one of the hardest catches to attempt and make it’s because it can fall short and hit the ground or when you take the catch and come back down on you arm it can fall out of you hand but you can also injure your shoulder if you don’t fall properly on to the ground from taking the catch.

The catch I like is the guy jumping to get it and palming it down to the other guy and him having to dive to get the ball

My favourite ever classic catch came in last year BBL from the Adelaide strikers I really enjoyed it because of how much effort Ben Laughlin had to do when running to get the catch but also make sure he doesn’t fall over the Boundary rope and also Jake Weatherald backing him up by also running in and trying to stop a boundary in Ben wasn’t able to get catch and drop it.

but how hard must of that been for Ben to make the catch and throw it back 30 mitres to the running Weatherald to slow down and help his teammate with the catch and help his team.

thanks for reading and if you would like to see Matt and I attempt some of these or do some of our own I would like to hear from you

until next time

What I think about The Bend Circuit

Everyone with it only being just over 50 days to the V8 Supercars hit the new circuit The Bend Motorsport Park in SA I would give you my thought on it.

You can see a picture of what the track layout will be when the V8 Supercar drivers will be driving around it in just a little under two months time. It’s the first time there is going to be two Supercars events in South Australia in the same year.

the orange outline is the track they will be racing on, it is 4.95 km making it the second longest track behind Bathurst. This is going to be a hard track for the drivers as its a new track and most of them wouldn’t have driven it before. The drivers will do a walk around like they do at every track but they will be looking at the apexes on all the corners where they think the best driving line is and where the best overtaking spots are. I reckon probably one of the best overtaking spots are is the corner into a chicane after the long straight and also the corner coming onto the straight as well.

The Bend Motorsport Park are also trying to win the hosting rights to hold the Australian MotoGP round there if they can, if the Australian MotoGP were to go somewhere else I believe it will go here as it is a very new circuit and I like the GP in Melbourne but I would like to see it at a different track. If it was to host the Australian MotoGP it will give the riders and new track to race on that they haven’t before and give them a different type of race all together.

Do you think this is going to be a good circuit for the drivers and the teams and will it stay for a long time in the supercars series. Also what would be your favourite corner on the track

Until next time

Fitness Update Day 6,7&8

Well its been a crazy few days, along day at work Friday where I took a short lunch time walk and then created a whole heap of short 10 minute walks throughout the day, which was great to get me close to that 10k goal (which I fell short of) but it also made my day at work that bit longer which was a little frustrating. You can see from the screenshot from my phone I got with 900 steps 440 metres of my goal and hit the 3k calorie goal which is great from a weight loss point of view.

From there Saturday was huge with my football comeback being over for the time being with the D grade team being pulled from the comp due to a lack of player numbers as a result of injuries such as my hamstring I decided to start the morning with a walk/run. The running didn’t get me very far and showed just how unfit I am, I think I lasted about 2-3 mins which is pathetic but its a base to build up from I guess. All up I walked for just over an hour which put me on about 8,000 steps and it was only about 11am great start to the day. From there I took both my girls for short individual walks and by the time that was done I was at over 10k and I hadn’t even had lunch. From there that is where the fun begins I purchased 3 tonnes of loam for my backyard, sounds simple right get a wheel barrow and move it down to the backyard not easy but not hard. That would have been great except I have a split level home which makes a wheel barrow very difficult to use. from there my walk ways around my house are very narrow once you take into account the window seals and air conditioner unit so by the bucket load it is. after almost 2 hours of filling bucket loads and walking them the 30 metres down the backyard up and down the stairs I was spent and had only made a small dent in the 3 tonne loam pile but the Fitbit results speak for themselves

Sunday more loam to move, a big thanks to Kieran for coming to help for 3-4 hours helping me move just half the pile of loam getting a nice loam layer over about 60% of my backyard, more up and down the stairs but the killer for me that day was my sloped driveway after a few hours that 4-5 metre driveway felt like it went for about 20 metres the legs, especially the ankles could really feel it and are still feeling it today but the job was getting done I was saving money and getting a whole heap of much needed exercise. From there on the drive to drop Kieran home we stopped and smashed out some Pokemon Go raids and hit a whole heap of Poke stops and catching a few Pokemon.

I am taking it easy today due to some serious ankle soreness before planning to spend another couple of hours moving loam tomorrow afternoon after work before the rain hits in the coming days.
