    I reckon ‘tricky’ is in the eye of the beholder. Some people find some things ‘tricky’ and prefer to have a professional do it for them or assist them. I could, for example, read the manual and change the brake pads on my car … but I don’t.

    You would be well advised to consult one of the registered migration agents who pots on this forum for an assessment of your visa prospects and your possible strategies.

    Took my 5 year old Grandson for his 1st riding lesson today. He was a natural! Not sure who had the most fun!

    People’s mileage varies. It will depend on where you have been since the 309 was granted, when the police checks for the original application were done and the mood of the delegate considering the application. The AFP checks are not ‘for the sake of it’ if you are now living in Australia.

    "Take the last train to Marrickville and I'll meet you at the station." Is it on the Bankstown line? Campsie, Lakemba? Once I was walking towards Central, on Buckingham St when a woman said something to me. My first reaction was "No, I haven't got any money." But then I listened to her and she was asking to get to the station. She had a slight speech impediment or similar. And she took my hand and I walked her to Central and onto the platform. I think she was going to Campsie.

    Updated ceremony invitation. Guys this is surprisingly fast as I thought it would be another 6-8 months wait for the ceremony so I hope this is a good sign for all the people waiting in VIC

    I think you will only need to supply one if she has returned to Russia since arriving in Australia.

    What do you think about supermarket shares? With price rises all over the pace, people need to eat and these companies are big enough to make profits from price rises?

    nursing homes were not the problem, i think it was "care homes" where they don't need more than 1 nurse on duty? So potentially non-clinical "care" staff were making clinical life and death decisions. Sure it will all come out one day.

    I hope they come up with something better than “someone in a nursing home decided it must have been covid” if I’m honest. It was this lack of oversight of death certification that bought us the gift that was Harold Shipman. I appreciate things were stretched and chaotic in the beginning. I hope we get some proper scrutiny and answers from an enquiry.

    I saw it in The Telegraph so it’s behind a paywall. That’s the whole article I copied across.

    Interesting read cheers Amber I know at the start of the pandemic my friends Grandad died and it was classed as covid even though the family knew that it wasn't. They had to fight it so that they could have a proper funeral for him. Thankfully they won so managed to give him a proper send off. Must have been hard at the start of the pandemic with people not knowing how bad it was going to be.

    Invermectin did nothing. I always found it weird that crackpots would believe something with no evidence, but find conspiracies in drugs that had been tested. https://www.wsj.com/articles/ivermectin-didnt-reduce-covid-19-hospitalizations-in-largest-trial-to-date-11647601200

    The so called "common cold" is actually a multitude of different viruses but about 20% are a Coronavirus and it's highly likely that vaccination against Covid-19 will produce anti-bodies that also work on other Coronaviruses and (less likely but still possible that it would show up in a shorter illness) that they will have an effect on other viruses such as Rhinovirus, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and Human parainfluenza virus (HPIV) the other most common causes of colds.

    Being honest I can't stand the taste of either marmite or Vegemite, but at least the smell of marmite doesn't make me vomit, where as Vegemite is like kryptonite to me...

    Same here. Much prefer vegemite. Funny though, I prefer penguins to Tim Tams.

    Perhaps for the 189 visa, but then you need 95 to 100 points to stand any chance of getting one of those. For the 190 and 491 visas, the state looks at exactly what their needs are. So for instance, if they're short of Physics teachers, they're not going to pick a Biology teacher.

    It will be interesting to see how things go down in the history books. People refuse to be mugged off anymore. I predict there will be a lot of so called conspiracy theorists vindicated.

    LOL you're lucky. It's 30 minutes to the nearest store which does sell baked beans but an hour to the nearest supermarket, I think it is an IGA, from his place. He has a creek with a solar pump into a big tank which does the garden, bathroom and laundry, then he has another big tank for rainwater from the roof. Dont have many photos but he has been into hay making - made his own baler, rakes it up and they made half a dozen bales I think. With a little help from his friend of course.
