  1. G'day Walter! I had my first shot yesterday and my second is booked for the end of June. Flights to and from New Zealand will resume on the 18th of this month with certain restrictions and caution. The decision was delayed due to a minor outbreak in Queensland just before Easter but with a short lockdown in Brisbane and surrounding areas, was lifted after a few days once the contact cause was detected and isolation ensued. Queensland is the only state not included at the moment but will be reviewed soon and hopefully will commence on the 18th too. My daughter has been back home
  2. We here in Oz are well under way with vaccinations. I expect to have a shot in the next couple of weeks but I'm in no hurry. With no Covid 19 infections reported in the community for weeks now and only a few from international visitors (mostly ex pats returning home), in quarantine we are distributing inoculations to those who are deemed priorities. We can book on line to get vaccinated by our local doctors. There were hiccoughs at first due to bookings reaching saturation point but it seems to have been sorted out. International travel between Australia and New Zealand is
  3. R.I.P. Charlie Pride. Back in September 1975 Bo Diddley (deceased 2008), was playing a gig at the Coogee Oceanic Hotel and Charlie got up with him and they did a rendition of Dobie Gray's Drift Away. Great voice and something of a departure from Bo's usual repertoire.
  4. This sounds like another similar story. A woman filed a tax return and answered the occupation question: Poultry Farmer. Long story short, assessors visited her and asked her to show them her "farm". She pointed to a large four poster bed and said, "I raised 1000 cocks here last year!"
  5. After reading all the posts, it is clear there is/was a lot of misinformation put out by government agencies about Covid19 and the imminent release of vaccines. Some of the concerns mentioned are valid whilst others are simply nonsense. Any vaccine is not 100% effective as some people have bad reactions to them but for the most part are safe and do offer some protection against a variety of diseases. The pharmaceutical companies and medical research teams from around the world have created a race to be the first to find the "perfect" vaccine with limited testing. Time will

    Tonight's kickoff imminent. Who's that band playing in the background? https://www.foxsports.com.au/video/league/nrl/blockbuster-eels-vs-chooks!776652

  9. This is among the only things this woman managed to salvage after evacuating her home from the fires around Cobargo N.S.W She was giving Scott Morrison a serve.
  10. Jimmy Page 76 today. It's in my mind too.
  11. We're finally getting some very light rain where I am courtesy of a thunder storm. Hopefully it's going where it's needed too. The downside is there is a risk of further fires because of lightning strikes associated with the storm. Thank you all for your thoughts and best wishes. Still a long way to go, another two months until Autumn.
  12. 9.47pm 36 degrees Celsius down from 47 at 3.00pm. Fires still raging.
  13. So the Patriots are WORLD champions! How does that work? Two calls that stood out during the game that were confusing and momentum killers that definitely favoured NE. That tackle where the Rams player was penalised for being too rough or some other asinine reason. With all the protection they wear and obvious fitness, players should be able to take a hit like that. They are men aren't they?. Conversely, a Rams player was coathangered while the Patriots player escaped being penalised because he (the Ram), was deemed to be in the field of play, when clearly he was over
  14. Evan Theatre Friday 30/11/18.
  15. How about that punter for Seattle, Michael Dickson?
  16. Nice work! I looked at 23 but it was hard to pick it when horses don't have much if any, form on Australian courses. I gave you second and third. You're welcome! The trifecta paid 2.5k here.
  17. The race is on today at 3.00pm AEST in 4/12 hours.. New York is 16 hours behind Australia. I like 3, 9, 11, 17. Not necessarily in that order.
  18. Ashes. Check. On to Melbourne.
  19. Could be a triple and double ton in a test match innings. A record? A declaration tomorrow at / by lunch.
  20. A long way to go yet, CP. Malan and Bairstow batted magnificently, the highest ever fifth wicket partnership against Australia. 6 for 35 was disappointing for England. Losing one of your strike bowlers hasn't helped the cause. Has Cook played his last test? Perhaps. Hopefully Smith will get another ton.
  21. In just over 24 hours the Perth test begins. Should be a fast pitch and good weather too.
