Not a lot of “good” Covid news here or at your end! Bolton, Bradford; where else? All due to disregarding the Rules, apparently. We had a slight increase in new cases and deaths reported today.
But the pollies are grimly reporting this as OK because “the long term trend” is still going down!, whilst they now talk of the 14 day average; apparently it sounds better.
Our Premier and presumably an entourage of experts are to visit their NSW counterparts to learn about “contact tracing”, as NSW represents the gold standard! Why they can’t do that sort of work via video conferencing, beats me!
More sad news today. A man was mauled to death by a white-pointer shark not far of a Gold Coast beach! He was a real-estate man in his 40s: he died at the scene!. To my mind not many deaths come worse than that which is why I’ve avoided that particular past-time!
Megs You can stop laughing and take your tongue out of your cheek, if you can manage that! My “importance” never scored us an invite to any garden party on the lawns of Govt. House. In fact we never got to see them let alone meet them, even at our polling station.
What I was getting at is, line up the Lord Lieutenant of Herts prior to your Blue Sapphire anniversary and the rest of his entourage will fall into place; or is it “her entourage”?
Btw; you could be right about my “space”.
AGAA4 That’s very interesting about your GGG. How did he get to OZ in the first place and what family was involved? Have you done, or thought of doing your family history? There could be some useful info. there!
My dear Vera completed her side of her family, which was no mean feat because although she was an only child (her father shot through as soon as she was born) the extended family was numerous and consisted of many “Whites”!
My side of the equation was fairly nondescript and Mam and Dad rarely talked about them beyond my Aunts and Uncles especially after we left M/c
Jaxjacky Glad to think we can bring some enjoyment from “Down Under”. Bet I beat you in a loo paper contest! How about 22 rolls!?
Our No.2 Son is shopping for me and either he knows something I don’t or he simply forgot, but I’m well equipped to deal with all emergencies.
When I examine his receipts from the supermarkets I notice relatively few “specials”
I realise he’s “time-short” for grocery shopping, even though he’s working from home, so he must grab the first brand of anything I’ve requested, whereas I made an art of hunting out “specials”, usually down at floor level.
Any way, beggars can’t be choosers so I simply pay up and shut up. At least it avoids squabbles because unlike me he can light a short fuse at times!
