Here in Australia the cost of solar panels is still quite high I looked into them about 3 years ago and couldn't afford them. But it should probably be something I should relook at

Here in Australia quite a few people do dry July, but its a fundraising thing so people donate money to cancer charities or something?

@savagerenata i may be some what melodramatic about the cold. Im in Australia and we havent had a day under 41 all week. Thats celcius which is maybe 100? Anyway I'm still not sleeping with aircon on as I don't think its warm enough.
@Jeanni but its so cold!
@garli here you go. According to the first thing i came across in google only 12% of australian home loans have fixed rates http://m.smh.com.au/business/banking-and-finance/australians-would-rather-float-than-fix-on-mortgages-despite-low-rates-20140725-zwj6t.html
@garli i dont think i know anyone with a fixed rate mortgage though admittedly its not something i ask people a lot. But i think most people in australia go variable
@garli in australia you have the option of fixed or variable interest rates. Though fixed is usually only for a certain period. Like fixed for 3 years or up to 10 i think is the most I've seen. If you opt for variable the interest rate is lower than a fixed one.
