  1. Add water rates to your list. These will be approx. $250 per month.
  2. How many are in your family? I think your grocery bill will be a fair bit higher than $300 per month.

    As far as I know it's from Covid complications but she may also have had underlying health problems. When the Coroner is involved does that mean there will be a post mortem? I'm not sure really but obviously her death isn't straight forward.

    Further to my post above ..................... another elderly person died with Covid at a nearby hospital and a local 36 year old woman died at the weekend and there is speculation she died from Covid complications so given the circumstances of her death, the matter has been referred to the Coroner for determination.

    Tasmania is having a large influx of tourists from all over the mainland. Of course Covid arrived as soon as the border opened but no panic. As of today there are 40 people in hospital with Covid, 3 people with Covid in ICU and one death. The person who died was 90 years old and not vaccinated. She also had other health problems.
  6. Why are you moving to outside of Melbourne? Have you got a job lined up there? We visited Warrnambool a large town on the Victorian coast and really liked it but it's probably too far away from Melbourne .................. about 3.5 hours drive away. Good luck with the move.

    RIP Meatloaf šŸ¦‡

    He didn't give himself that name. He was a chunky kid and apparently his parents gave him the name. Cruel.

    The weather in Devonport Tasmania today

    Another lovely day. 22C and a slight breeze. The streets around here are lined with flowering gums. View down the river Mersey from town. Boat with our supplies from the mainland. Fishing off the jetty.

    My home country of Scotland continues to have the highest rate of drug use/deaths in Europe.

    Potential move to Sydney

    To add to my post above, we were never burgled in the many years we lived in Sydney and I always felt safe there. There were areas I wouldn't have wanted to live in I have to say but always enjoyed living in North Ryde. Don't know how much it's changed in the last 8 years though.

    Potential move to Sydney

    I am perfectly aware of what's going on here in Devonport. There is a fair share of shifty looking shysters living around the place. Meet plenty of poor souls and also drug affected people through the voluntary work I do. However unlike your neighbourhood the police know exactly what's what and keep an eye on certain goings on. I know the certain areas of town where most of the nefarious stuff is happening. Doesn't mean to say the whole town is crime ridden. Most of the place is trouble free and a really good place to live. I never think twice about walking after dark for example and I've never heard of anyone being attacked walking on their own at night.

    I have a friend who has been putting off having the AZ/pfizer jab until Novavax was available here. She was scared of the side effects (amongst other things) so I informed her that she may still have them with Novavax. I've never had any side effects after the flu vaccine.

    The novavax vaccine also has side effects much the same az and pfizer e.g. fatigue, headache and muscle pain.

    Yes, the whole visa thing makes my head spin.
