I’ve only just discovered a new online slideshow service that really rocks. Thanks to Leo and Amber from Net@Nite for the introduction! Here’s a quick sample of the service using a few of my pics of model Hofit Golan I shot at the Palazzo Versace on Australia’s Gold Coast.

You may be aware I’ve developed an appreciation for a really good cup of coffee.
I’ve got my Rancilio Silva at home which, with its new PID kit, is giving me a “God shot” virtually every time I turn it on.
At the other end of the scale I’ve had some truly awful coffees as I’ve travelled throughout Australia and south-east Asia.Like the time in Rockhampton a local donut shop poured instant coffee into their espresso machine portafilter, then heated the milk to sub-nuclear temperatures.
A quick plug: a colleague of mine is selling gourmet coffee, roasted fresh daily.They Express Post and have a money back guarantee. At the moment, if you sign up for their newsletter, you get a bonus sample of their coffee with your first purchase, whether that’s 500g, 1kg or more. They’ve got some interesting coffee articles as well. Plus, if you click on the link below, and sign up, I’ll get some free coffee when I buy my next order.
You don’t want to deprive me of free coffee do you?

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned my mate’s coffee roasting business before, but it’s really starting to pick up steam (so to speak). A bit of a plug here: Roast and Post (http://www.roastandpost.com.au/) is an Australian company selling single origin and blended coffees. I’ve tasted them and they’re delicious, but what sets them apart is the fact they roast their coffee within 24 hours of shipping, so you know the coffee you’re getting is the freshest possible. I’m sure you’re like me and you’ve tasted some bad coffees, often the reason is how long it’s been sitting on the shelf. Give it a burl, he’s got a money back guarantee, and tell him Cameron sent you (he may give you a bonus).
Anyway, my mate told me he’s going to be upgrading the site, and putting in a whole new shopping cart. He’s like a lot of start up companies, without a lot of money for marketing, but he think’s he’s on a winner with this new shopping cart software called StoreSuite. It’s being developed by Interspire, who also put out SendStudio, which is an e-mailing software that helps you keep your customer database in order. One of the nice things he pointed out is they’re building in Australian conditions right from the start so with shipping
you’re already covered.
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted about how it works out.
