  1. Late fifties and my blood pressure is 110/70. I take no medication. That's the same as it was when I was 18 when I was competitively cycling. I'm a bee's dick away from 12 stone something, 82 kilos for you Europeans. I was pretty out of shape in my late 20s, 30s and 40s, and I certainly didn't live a healthy lifestyle. But it shows you can get it back. Probably easiest not to lose it in the first place. Because it does get harder. But don't give up hope. Get active, live well, look after yourselves. You will reap the rewards.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    I know laws are different in different countries, but weren't Americans prevented from being able to sue for damages against the vaccine? If this was the case, I fail to see how they could penalize people for not taking it. I'm trying to decide whether I will have another and I'm in the vulnerable list. Having just had covid, i will leave it for three months now. I will certainly have my flu jab. My wife and son were much sicker than me, (not terribly), and I am more recently vaccinated than them, so I can only assume that is the vaccine working.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    I'll start wearing one before I go on holidays to see my mum as she is not well and I don't want to spread anything to her. Ironically I currently have covid, so I should be immune to covid and it's just colds and flu I'm trying to protect against. Before covid I never would have worn a mass, but thanks to covid it's more acceptable, although some people still seem to have a real problem with it. I really can't understand why. It's almost like they consider it a personal affront. People should just accept that if someone is wearing a mask they have a good reason for it. Who wants to be sick when they are on holiday?
  4. I don't understand why people are bothered by other people wearing masks? Why don't people just accept that there's a good reason for it? I'm off on holidays soon, so I'll be wearing a mask when ever I go out as I don't want to pick anything up before I go. I've just had covid, so I'm not worried about that, but I don't want to pick up a cold or flu. And yet people point and stare at me like I have two heads. Just accept that if someone is wearing a mask, where ever they are or whatever they are doing, they have good reason.

    My son caught a train yesterday. He had a heavy bag and it's about a miles walk to the station. My wife and I have covid, he does not. I offered to give him a lift as I feel fine. I would have worn a mask and opened the windows, but he opted to walk as the heavy bag had wheels. So you think I would have been over the top driving him wearing a mask?
  6. Finally caught covid. Felt a bit unwell for a day. Now just a little tired.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    I have to say that Britain does a bloody good funeral. They have given her a stupendous send-off, and fair dues because she was a fantastic monarch. But I will always be team Harold. They stole that crown. Not forgotten. Not forgiven. 1066 and all that...

    Wasn't Brexit meant to fix this?

    Cost of Living.

    Australian labour party had a female leader. Have the liberals ever had a female leader?

    Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    Keep a close eye on the next few weeks. ASX is about to hit the highs of 2007. What's gone wrong there? Australian markets gone nowhere in fifteen years?

    Cost of Living.

    Parley does have a point, and central banks do tend to look more at discretionary inflation rather than non discretionary, as discretionary will be more affected by interest rates than non discretionary. But the non discretionary is important because it gives an indication of how much people are suffering. And it will affect how much discretionary is reduced. People favour food and fuel over holidays. So both are important.

    Still into your mining stocks parley? Window of opportunity could be approaching. Gold price is very tempting.

    My father worked at argyle diamond mine NW WA for a while. He said security was unbelievable. Won't go into the details, but I doubt anything was smuggled out

    Rights of Way, Footpaths

    Alltrails.com doesn't look that bad. Haven't used it but searched for walks in South West wa and it came up with quite a few. There are a few others, but until you test them in anger you won't know how good they are. I'm planning on doing some walking when I'm in Oz later this year so I can report back then.
