We’re Back!

Wow, it’s been over 18 months since I last posted on CodeFerret. I’ve been pretty busy with some other business ventures. Some were successful and others, well, let’s just say they didn’t go too well.

Now that I’m back I will be creating a schedule of content over the next couple of weeks so expect to see new infor popping up on a regular basis. I’ll try and post evey two to start with.

The focus of CodeFerret is going to change a little as well. The content will now be more focussed on money saving tips. In particular, we’ll start looking at some of the more absurd tips and advice give out.

Anyhow, that’s all for now. See you soon.

A beer belly was almost a badge of honour – 15 pints a night and a greasy portion of chips was enough to finish off the night (and your heart)! Continue reading

Owning And Insuring A Car Feels Like A Punishment

If I skip back a ‘few’ years in time, I can easily recall the days when my car insurance was cheap as chips. Well, ok, maybe not chips but it was lot less expensive when compared to todays prices.

Buy A Home Now or Rent?

House prices are up, house prices are down! Should I buy a home now or rent? When will the prices drop? Will the mortgage lenders ever give me more than a 95% loan?
