  1. It just gets worse! Now it's 3 appointments they told me! Did the renal and abdominal this morning but the legs have to be done separately, one on Wednesday and the other the day after!
  2. Ultrasound tomorrow and Monday. You couldn't make this up! renal Arteries Doppler, USS Aorta-Bifemoral+bilateral legs. Can't be done on the same day as it's classed as two ultrasounds and they are only allowed to bulk bill one per patient per day! FFS they're still gonna get billed for both anyway so why not on the same day? Just extra admin costs when billed separately you would think?

    How is Trump doing so far?

    I think Cohen's book may have a few of them wavering: A tell-all memoir by Michael Cohen describes a scene ahead of the 2016 election in which Donald Trump allegedly said after meeting a group of prominent evangelical Christian leaders, “Can you believe that bullshit? Can you believe people believe that bullshit?”

    Home schooling anyone do it?

    I home schooled a foster child from age 14 to 16. If nothing else, it gave him 2 yrs lack of peer pressure and disdain and allowed him to focus on what was needed for him to elevate to vocational training.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    It's unbelievable isn't it? The guy has been proven to be a liar, racist, misogynist, and yet still achieves popular support. What is it about his supporters that they seem to value "telling it as you see it" above fact and science? They seem to support him purely on the fact that he "gobs off" (I love him 'cause he tells it as it is) and truth/fact doesn't enter into the equation at all. Or perhaps there's that human propensity to support the underdog which media attacks have painted him as (most of them unwittingly), or quite simply that the "brain dead" (my appraisal of his supporters) truly believe that the USA is the centre of the universe and Trump can prove it so. From some interviews that I've seen his rank and file supporters seem "Traumatised" by the disasters in Vietnam/Iraq/Afghanistan and think Trump can create an America that will alleviate their trauma .All mindless morons as far as I'm concerned, including the media that gives him (edited to suit their political affiliations) air time.

    Right or Wrong

    Pretty weird "one parent rule". The one they let in could be covid positive and the one they excluded not?

    What about the positives?

    Got to know more of my neighborhood folk . From my morning walk early in the lockdown.

  8. Results from full body scan show only athritis and old pelvic fracture that I didn't know I had. Impaired Kidney function according to bloods/urine so GP thinks I've had a kidney stroke so now listed for renal/leg/abdominal scan next Friday and Monday.
  9. @The Pom Queen Said he wasn't allowed to tell me but Cresswell has made it public via their FB page anyway. He's on the Adelaide. He's in the line-up somewhere
  10. Shovel Nose Ray. here's a bigger model. Damn good chewin' although a bugger to skin
  11. He's loving it at Cresswell but I never doubted he wouldn't take to it. Only downside he said was the food due to covid shortages (they said) and he lost 9 kilos the first 4 weeks. He was just about to leave when he called me but I don't doubt he'll love it at sea also. He's a big lad now as he was a personal trainer and pumped a lot of iron. Thank God he got rid of that beard!

    Electric Grills

    Yeah, got one of those which I use for Wok cooking. I bought the George Foreman Griddle and the Oztrail Kitchen Compact to sit it on. At $130 for that and the griddle it was well worth it. Cooked a "full English" on it this morning in half the time it would take on the BBQ. It's easy to clean also and the non-stick is top notch
  13. Thanks. Yes, (morbid head on) There's folk who will help him out if I'm out of commission
  14. Just had a video call. Josh's first day at sea. He's out for 10 days. Not too bad a deal to send his little Hyundai Getz for when he gets back...................picked up from here (home) and shipped to Jervis Bay only $300
