    Life in quarantine (Melbourne)

    All the best with your interview on Monday Lavers.

    Stop the boats!

    She would have been there about 15 years ago. She had a posting to the British High Commission in Lusaka. She said it was a lovely country but unfortunately like many other countries there, it had it's faults ........... mainly caused by humans. The country itself she enjoyed very much.

    My sister lived and worked in Zambia for a couple of years. She travelled extensively all over Africa and has also had holidays there. She really likes the country. Of course you have to be careful but she never had any trouble.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Good interviewer .............. wasn't prepared to listen to bullsh*t.

    Stop the boats!

    I was listening to a few Americans (black) being interviewed on the TV. They have moved to Africa to live. I found this article. https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/african-americans-moving-africa-180116092736345.html Some parts of Africa would be OK but I do also think there is a helluva lot of corruption in many of the countries. I have a very good friend and her husband who have lived in Swaziland for a number of years and they really like it. I believe Marisa (on this forum) also lived there?

    I haven't got time to watch all of it just now but I'll settle down with a cuppa and watch the whole thing later. Something to look forward to.

    Good current adverts

    I had a chuckle at this one. The Queen and Harry sharing a pizza.

    Beirut Explosion

    Indeed it is but it should have been avoided. Isn't it something to do with a Russian ship with nearly 3,000 tons of explosive stuff standing around for around 6 years. Somebody hasn't done their job right. An absolute disaster.

    I agree. Syria and the rest of the middle east and the bombing is nothing to do with the African migrants illegally entering the UK.

    Anyone don a DNA test? Any surprises?

    My sister has looked into our family ancestry/genealogy. We pretty much knew quite a bit about it but she had one of those DNA tests a while ago and it confirmed what we already knew. There is Finnish/North West Russian, Western European and Scottish/Irish/English in our mix. My husband is Irish, English and Western European. His sister had a DNA test done.

    The weather in Devonport Tasmania today

    I think you are heading for Launceston? Launceston also had a snowfall. First proper snow in 50 years. It was gone by midday. Photo taken last night. Totally different weather where we live but we are at sea level close to the Bass Strait.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Crikey BTD we may have passed each other in the street! Yes I have very nice memories of the place.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    i was there in 1972 for nearly 3 years. It was a great place then. I lived just outside of San Luis Obispo. Loads to do there and it's a university town so a lively nightlife at the time. Lovely climate and I enjoyed the whole experience but I was happy enough to leave in the end. Went to Switzerland for a year after that.

    The weather in Devonport Tasmania today

    Mild sunny day here. No wind at all. Just come back from a walk with our dog. These are a couple of off the beaten track walks we enjoy. The seagulls enjoy having the beach to themselves. All we could hear were the birds twittering and singing. When we go early in the mornings we see plenty of wallabies and rabbits but no sign of them later on.
