Has anyone heard from our Australian poster, don’t think I am supposed to mention names, but we know who I mean!!

Megs if it’s the one with a number as the last in their user name, she posted today on the cinema thread

Megs36 Mon 09-Aug-21 10:50:20

jax. Thankyou but really ignorant here, where’s the cinema thread?🤭

Yabbie Mon 09-Aug-21 10:50:36

Do you miss the person, or is there something about Oz that you'd like to know?
I have a small farm in Central Victoria, so I wouldn't know much about WA for example but happy to share anything that interests you.

I suspect the person megs is looking for isn't female.

Megs36 Mon 09-Aug-21 10:54:57

Yabbie yes all news interning now. And*. kitty * you are right.

Megs36 Mon 09-Aug-21 10:56:09

Sorry interesting not interning. 🤪

Please post anything about Oz Yabbie, my two sons and families live over there and I really miss them! sad

BlueSky Mon 09-Aug-21 11:04:16

Megs possibly computer problem or hospital, let’s hope it’s the computer.

BlueBelle Mon 09-Aug-21 11:04:48

Oh for goodness sake are we so cowered down by Gransnet
Do you mean Rufus or Nanna8 I think she is posting
Not sure about Rufus though I think saw him on last week but not sure now
Hope he’s ok

Jaxjacky Mon 09-Aug-21 11:45:13

You’re right Megs he hasn’t been around for a while, I too hope all is well.

I was just going to post:
Do you mean Rufus? Where is he?

BlueSky Mon 09-Aug-21 12:00:44

Juliet shall we go over together ? flowers

BlueBelle Mon 09-Aug-21 12:01:02

Having done a search ( which we know isn’t very good or reliable) I can’t find anything from Rufus after 28th July so 12 days ago can anyone find anything more recent ?

Jaxjacky Mon 09-Aug-21 12:20:15

I tried too BlueBelle, it is a rubbish search engine. I think it was a bit later than that, maybe a week ago or just over?

Jaxjacky Mon 09-Aug-21 12:23:44

Searched under Good Evening Chewsday, last week he was here.

sodapop Mon 09-Aug-21 12:25:54

So brave BlueBelle I salute you, hope you don't get sent to the norty step.smile

rafichagran Mon 09-Aug-21 12:31:13

I was wondering about Rufus 2. I hope he is ok.

What would you like to know about Australia? Happy to answer anything!

Quick summation of the state of the country - most of New South Wales, some of Queensland and some of Victoria are in lockdown - again. Victoria is in its sixth lockdown - poor things - delta entered Sydney via a limousine driver who picked up an international flight crew and wasn’t wearing a mask - he then went shopping at a huge shopping centre in Bondi and there it’s spread and spread and spread to much of Sydney. People doing the wrong thing and not abiding by the lockdown rules and travelling to other areas has made it spread to various areas of New South Wales and spread interstate as well.

Vaccines-we don’t have enough-and are still only vaccinating over 40s with Pfizer. Astra is only recommended for over 60s here and many over 60s feel they are getting a second rate vaccine with the rare blood clotting issue that mainly affects younger recipients.

Happy to any plenty more if you need information.

I'm worrying about Rufus2 as well. I've PMd him but got no response which isn't like him. I also emailed him but the email address which worked previously bounced back. I really hope all is well with him.

Callistemon Mon 09-Aug-21 17:18:43

I hope he is ok.
