Kurt Busch sees no problems with the rear spoiler that NASCAR is in the process of adapting to replace the rear wing, a move that could enhance the passing ability of cars this season while providing a more traditional look.

Nascar just doesn't get it and I guess never will. Put a blade on the back, dump the side plates on it, dump the splitter on the front and get rid of the side skirts. Then let the boy's go racing with something that looks somewhat like a car. If they can't handle it then find a driver that can. They used to do it at speeds faster than today. When was the last time a new qualifing record was set? Back in the 70's they ran faster than they do today with 1/2 the HP powering a brick.

Hey I got another idea. Let's go to a museum and get ol' Richard's Super Bird out and see what he can do with it down at Dayton in a test, He'd love it. Then later let ol' Bill get out his Melling T Bird and see if he can break his 212 record at Teg'a bet he could wring 214+ with the new tires.
Brian and Stooges get you head's out of your a****.

Our au pair abroad program offers Australian candidates the most extensive au pair preparation & support package to ensure you are totally ready for this cultural exchange program. The package includes agency support before travel and during your au pair experience, an online babysitting course and an extensive training pack in the post with handy reference books.


Our Manager has lived and worked all over Europe and now lives in Australia. We know Europe and we know our trusted partners overseas personally so we are ideally placed to help our Australian candidates to find a screened host family to match.

Our local agent makes sure both au pair and host family are informed, looked after and supported throughout your stay; we know this is very important to the success of the program.


We were the first au pair agency in Australia awarded with IAPA membership, the International Au Pair Association. We also have our own IAPA agency in Britain, so Smart Au Pairs support start-to-finish!

Like it? Why not register now to find out more!

We have a number of nanny jobs and au pair positions available right now all over the UK and in Europe. Register first to be introduced.


It is great to take part in the au pair placement program because:
• You learn about another culture from the comfort of a host family home.
• You get a chance to improve your language skills or learn another language, use what you learn(ed) in everyday practical conversations with the host family and be fluent before you know it!
• You enjoy being with children, you may even want to make this your future career.
• You like meeting new people, making new friends and learning about yourself at the same time.
• You wish to travel and see different places like a local rather than a tourist.
• You want to earn some money and be independent to return to your home country richer, wiser and smarter to be prepared for your future.
• All this will help you to find a great job when you return home!!

In short, you are smart enough to understand the value of cultural exchange, vocational learning and language skills and you want to earn and learn through cultural childcare.

Smart Au Pairs will help you find the best suited family and support you throughout.

You do not need to speak any foreign languages if you travel to Europe and many of our host families will accept an English speaking candidate even without local language skills! We know however, how many of you dream to be fluent in another language - why not start learning today with our amazing i-pod courses;

Learn the Lingo on your iPod

Join the locals and have fun with our series of free language guides that contain around 30 basic phrases that you can download onto your iPod.

We offer the following au pair placement and nanny services:
