Better Covid news, thankfully. “Only” 4 deaths and new cases down below 200 yesterday; first time for ages. Hopefully let’s hope the trend continues downwards, because of our curfew and stage 4, but I don’t think people are going to rush out into the streets and burn their face masks just yet. Covid 19 is cunning and no knowing what yet might be in store for us.
We have a Royal Commission investigating when and how our 2nd outbreak occurred, apparently due to a botched 14 day quarantine hotel programme. It made me squirm watching on TV a top Govt. minister for Aged Care, being cross-examined by Commission senators and unable to remember any important figures.
Can’t see him holding his job for long, despite the Premier publicly defending him.
Premier Dan has been under the hammer for ages and I can’t see him wearing another problem, especially one not of his making. But it’s hard to feel sorry for politicians of whatever stripes considering the perks they get regardless!
Weather forecast has made up my mind; wet and freezing cold for at least the next 7 days. “Oh to be in England now that Autumn is there”!
Or are you calling it “Fall” these days after all the USofA election propaganda?
Jane nothing to be sorry about! I’m never jealous and hope you get more “Ellens” during your visit to Balmoral
Just because you couldn’t resist temptation.
It can happen all the time., especially as it now appears to be IFW (International Forgiveness Week)
Latest “Oldie” is still in transit somewhere, but despite your news of a price increase, like Basil Fawlty, “for once I’m in front”; I think!
I always take out an annual subscription which was £70 for 12 issues. Not bad, considering where we are. 24 issues would be cheaper, but I’m not pushing my luck!
Another TV rail programme this evening currently being recorded; it does it automatically and I don’t know where we’ll be off to, but who cares? They are all worth a look especially during lockdown.
Watching the very few people walking past the front wearing masks, I couldn’t help thinking of the possibility of us all mutating to the platypus profile especially if lockdown lasts much longer. Unlike you, they have to be worn all the time outdoors!
Grandmabatty There you go! “Platypus”. An easy one; your starter for ten! [smile
Haven’t had time for your latest. Yesterday, I was going round in circles trying to purchase something via Amazon’ After repeatedly being asked to solve puzzles (and failing), to prove I’m not a robot, I began to feel like one so I gave up and staggered off to bed like a good robot.
Same performance again this morning, but then I managed to contact a non-robot on the phone (overseas I think) and after a series of “What was that? we managed to set up my account, which I haven’t accessed yet, feeling that I’ve done enough for one day! Even robots are allowed to have feelings, so I’m told!
And all for a $10 cordless phone battery. I must have blown all of Amazon’s profit even before buying one!
Well, that’s another Friesday without Chish and Fips! Woe is me!
