    Cost of Living.

    The official stats that is. Bear in mind that if you are employed for just one hour per week, you are classed as employed. How on earth anyone can exist on that is beyond belief. Tied up with the unemployment issue is of course the lack of rental housing. Many small businesses (the backbone of Australia) are having trouble recruiting people because there is no housing available for these workers.
  3. Oh how special Bottie. I have had a bird bath in my garden for years and I have just witnessed a Bronze Winged Dove pair have a drink and a bath, and then perch on the top of the fence to dry off in the sun. Wish I had had the camera with me. Moments like this are so very special.
  4. Good hear and guessing that is the east coast of Australia! All is good in my world thanks Tink.
  5. Hey Tink.... good to hear from you after all this time..... what you up to? Rossy
  6. Yep know all about Genes! About 20 years ago when I was researching my paternal family tree, I discovered that my Great Great Grandfather was a twin. Turns out the twins had a massive argument and never spoke again. Through my research I found a cousin from the other twin's side of the family. I live in Australia and he lived in England, so when I was back in UK over the 1999/2000 festive season, we made arrangements to meet at a pub halfway between where he lived in Surrey, and where I was staying in West Sussex. We arranged to meet in the pub car park and exchanged car model and number place details. At said pub car park we both got out of our cars, and it was like looking into a mirror! We both burst into laughter and couldn't get over the whole genetic look alike thing we had going on. We got to know each other well over the coming weeks, and when he came to Oz to meet my side of the family, we realised that we both had the same irreverent sense of humour and views on politics, religion, food, books, etc. Loved that man so much and was heart broken when he died a couple of years ago.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    Never worn a foil hat.... it was just a genuine question, as so many I know are asking this .... along the lines of "I had all the jabs, why did I get Covid"
