While it may seem like commonsense to take good care of your employees so they will take good care of you, and the company, this simple rule of thumb is so often ignored....

Can Santa find your house??  Enjoy our interactive card and Merry Christmas everybody!!
Brrr Christmas time at the North Pole… Sadly, Santa's reindeers couldn't keep pace in the modern world… So it's goodbye Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen… how sad. But, in happier news, Santa's called up Private Fleet to help him with some brand new wheels ...

Thanks for the great feedback, Ricky!

I purchased a Mazda CX5 GT through Private Fleet; this was the first time I had used a service like this after stumbling across Private Fleet on the internet. I must say this is the best service, it has taken all the stress away from a new vehicle purchase and resulted in several thousands of dollars of savings in the process. I have already recommended this service to others and will definitely be using this service in the future. ***Well done Private Fleet***

What timing - as Usain Bolt wins another 100m overnight, Agence France-Presse pro photographer Olivier Morin snaps him with a lightning bolt in the background!

When it comes to driving, there are a couple of things you can guarantee will be making the rounds in the news - firstly, every other week you'll hear about some celebrity getting caught speeding, and secondly, there will be a new addition each month to the age-old debate about which sex is better on the road.

Just sold 141.com.au on Netfleet for $1,620.  Not bad for a speculative $25 hand-reg a few years ago :)

Leanne Cole (leannecolephotography.com/) has just posted a great article on our site about the dangers of buying 'grey imports' when it comes to photography gear.  Anyone got any experience?
