    Not only subject to finance approval, but name the bank that you want to approve it.
  2. Springtime it's definitely worth visiting kings park and the botanical garden, especially if they have had a drop of rain.

    What Book are you reading??

    Just read warnies autobiography. Very interesting. Reading red dawn now. WW1 murder mystery. Not bad.
  5. My parents were going on about the election and Scomo. Blaming him for all the world's troubles. I'm not a fan of the man, but to be fair, most of the things they were blaming him for were global issues that were out of his control. Seems like the media have had enough of him. Unfortunately my parents still believe what they read in the West Australian.
  6. A lot of people don't seem to understand that it takes an awful lot of time to apply for a job.
  7. Thanks. I have Australian citizenship so I'm not worried by the visa issues. But it's more from a tax and social security point of view. Apparently my company don't allow it in India, because India insists you pay tax there even for short stays, but I'm not sure about Australia. I have managed to find a website which I will read (it's rather long). But googling it tends to concentrate more on visas than tax.
  8. Does anyone know if you are resident in the UK, and a UK taxpayer, whether you can work for a limited time in Australia for a UK company remotely connecting to the UK? I'm an Australian citizen, so there are no worries there. It's more of a tax issue. Would the Australian government want to be paid tax, or would they just let it go if was just a couple of weeks?
  9. It's probably designed like that to breathe. Have you thought about wire?
  10. He was 74. Seems too young these days.
  11. I don't know what Strava is. I'll have a Google.
  12. I did race competitively in western Australia, road and velodrome in my youth. My bike is my favourite form of exercise, and I have built up the miles since the injury. It seems to have helped alot. I was trying the running because of the English winter, where the short days restrict the time. I'm usually out on the bike for hours, whereas a half hour run is quite tiring. I've been doing a lot of walking too which has been good. Ironically I did used to have a knee issue on the bike, but so far it's been ok.
  13. Started couch to five K again. Did it before, got to five K, then tore a calf muscle. Two stone lighter this time, so we will see if the old body holds up.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    A lot of people think the stats are for them. But they really aren't. They are calculated for the medical profession. Take cancer for example. They look at five year survival rates for cancers. They don't care what the people died of. If you die in a car crash, then your stat won't be on the five year survival. The reason being, because all stats are done the same way over time, and thus can be compared. It is the changes in the stats that are important. Individuals with cancer take these stats and try to apply them on a personal level. But that wasn't the intended purpose. The purpose was to let the medical profession know how they are improving. Covid is one of the few diseases where the public and social media have got the stats and have forced changes in the way they are calculated. All this does is make the stats useless because they are no longer standardized.
  15. There are lots of good copies, some not so good, but I'll get a Fitbit if they are reasonably priced, and they work well, as I have all the app history. Plus my current Fitbit has lasted about seven years.
