Below is a poem written by an online friend of mine. Peter has been writing a bit of poetry over the last few months. Enjoy.
'10 Things' about Heath Ledger
Named after Heathcliffe of Wuthering heights
Bronte's brooding haunted man who laughed
Three years ago he bought a house at Bronte beach
Money and fame from the mastering of his craft
He was experienced with Shakespearian plays
Famed for his modern 'Taming of the Shrew'
"And thereby hangs a tale" he told
In Ten Things I Hate About You.
Obssessed with Nick Drake who over-dosed young
Ledger tragically followed in his path
Heath made his music video this year
The final scene showed him drowning in a bath
He played a gay man on television
in Brokeback Mountain, the same male bond
He named his only daughter, Matilda
After a 'waltzing' man drowned in a pond
His first acting role was Peter Pan
At age ten, the boy who could fly
His youthful look, his cheeky smile
the boy that would never die
So much opportunity ahead for him
Heath's death was tragic and mysterious
His final role as the brooding clown who laughed
The Joker who asks Batman, "Why so serious?"
“I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh - even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you're not around. And the fact that you didnt call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you - not even close, not even a little bit, not any at all.”

And Peter is?
I heard that he was wasing having lots of trouble after filming his last role that he couldn;t let go of it - ie the role - hence a mix of things to help him ease down -
A tragedy - indeed - sometimes that sort of thing happens -
Sometimes just to remind us of who we are and why we are here - other times just to help others get out of the chair so they "Carpe Diem" and go do and see the world - and donlt gothe same way.

Thanks jas25t! I've heard many good things about the area but have been used to land selling out fairly quickly. I'm hoping it's just the interest rates going up that have…

Great question about home loans and savings. You have a solid plan for your renovation funds, but you want to ensure you understand your loan and offset account details.
