  1. it is interesting that they are finding covid germs in the sewerage systems but no people who have been tested. Probably a fair proportion of people get it and never get tested or just dismiss the symptoms as something else. Hate to say it but the very fact that you have to isolate until the test results are through will put many people off being tested.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    I'm really missing Trump in his role in "The Apprentice". Wish he would go back to it, he was superb.

    Corona Virus

    I think after another 3-4 weeks the whole thing will start to turn pear shaped. Just human nature, you can't keep people locked away for ever and let's hope our Premier realises that and gives us a bit of leeway. I think masks will be in for the duration but you do get used to them.

    Corona Virus

    Our lockdown is very long-a lot longer than Italy and Spain who didn't stick to it anyway. Israel similar but shorter. They can only travel 1km not 5 but then is is a smaller place. https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/the-world-s-longest-covid-19-lockdowns-how-victoria-compares-20200907-p55t7q.html

    Corona Virus

    I think the Victorian isolation is the most severe in the world, worse than Wuhan because it is going on longer. When I look at Europe and the US I think maybe, just maybe, we are doing the right thing but whether it is sustainable in the long run is a moot point.

    Corona Virus

    Of course the death rate from other diseases like influenza will be lower - we are isolating and wearing masks so we are being protected against that as well as Covid. I guess that is another small positive.

    Greta girl. I love it.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    They seem to be ‘boarders’ too when they arrive. Do they get lodging free?

    Yes you really cannot compare an overcrowded island with Sweden.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    To these people he does represent Christianity. They think he is one with them. Maybe he is, but I doubt it. The Southern Baptists like him. I know this because I am in touch with quite a few being a former Baptist who attended a similar church for many years. Many of them are really good people with firm and unwavering faith in the bible. I would call them Christians, they follow the bible very literally and believe in creationism.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    That fundamental Christianity is what holds many of the Americans. There are a lot out there, huge numbers and if that was the only thing, well good luck to him but it is the lies and the backtracking and sheer stupidity that worries me. No wonder he is good mates with that North Korean guy, they 'get' each other.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Trump may be regarded as unfit for office in Australia or the UK but the people in the USA are very different and look for different things in their leaders. Cultural differences and that is why he will probably get in again.

    Is Dan Andrews doing the right thing?

    There was an anti person on one of my facebook accounts and facebook actually removed his posts which I found interesting. He is a pretty immature individual and ranted on in quite an extreme way about conspiracies and he thought the virus didn't exist at all.

    What about the positives?

    Another positive for us is we discovered areas of the garden we'd never looked at before and replaced the weeds with a few vegies.

    Stop the boats!

    They look really fit and raring to go to me. Definitely 'middle class'.
