  1. David Icke the conspiracy theorist ................ I'd never hear of him before. Who actually believes him?

    Weeds or plants ?

    I grow carrots, leeks, broccoli, green beans and salad things in the communal garden which is a bit like an allotment. At home I grow tomatoes and strawberries. I'd never had a decent strawberry in all the years I've lived in Australia 'til I grew my own. The ones from the shops are tasteless and watery - same with a lot of the tomatoes. My home grown strawberries are full of flavour again the same with the tomatoes. We give away buckets of lemons and swap them for loads of apples with our neighbour. I've got my eyes on a good harvest of wild blackberries which I've spotted on my walks. They will be ready to pick in a couple of weeks. Again, on one of my walks I came across a pear tree in the middle of nowhere. There must have been a house in the close vicinity at one time as there is also a lilac tree and an old apple tree.

    Donald Trump isn't very impressed with the World Health Organisation. He is threatening to hold back on WHO funding.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    The current king of Thailand is rather a strange person. The Thais revered the old king and certainly can't be upfront with their opinion of his son as anyone who "defames, insults or threatens the king, the queen, the heir-apparent or the regent" will be punished with a jail term between three and 15 years. He's been married 4 times and disowned 4 of the children from his 2nd marriage. He's renowned for gambling, womanising and associating with illegal businesses and he's worth $30 billion. Amazing that most of the poor Thai population are expected to respect him above all others.

    Corona Virus

    An 80 year old Tasmanian man who was a passenger on the Ruby Princess cruise ship has become the third person to die from coronavirus in the state. Tasmania has recorded two other deaths. An elderly man died earlier this month at the Royal Hobart Hospital and an elderly woman died in the North West Regional Hospital. All three deaths in Tasmania were associated with the Ruby Princess cruise ship, which docked in Sydney in March and has been linked to hundreds of COVID-19 cases. There are 89 confirmed coronavirus cases in Tasmania, including the three deaths.

    Perhaps migrants here with a British background would feel some loyalty but why on earth would migrants from China, Italy, Greece, Russia, Germany and so on feel any loyalty whatsoever.
  8. Cardinal George Pell has been charged with multiple historical child sex offences. Pell is the 3rd most senior cardinal in Rome. Most of the alleged sex offences occurred in the 70s. He has denied the charges and also of covering up crimes by other priests.

    Good grief! I must google him and find out more about of his nonsense. Wonder how many books he managed to sell.

    Pets and Coronavirus/COVID-19

    A four-year-old female Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo has tested positive for the coronavirus. The tiger, named Nadia, is believed to be the first known case of an animal infected with Covid-19 in the US. The Bronx Zoo, in New York City, says the test result was confirmed by the National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Iowa. Nadia, along with six other big cats, is thought to have been infected by an asymptomatic zoo keeper. The cats started showing symptoms, including a dry cough, late last month after exposure to the employee, who has not been identified.

    Not everything of course but the front cover headlines of those rags New Idea and Woman's Day are usually total fairytales. I don't know how they get away with it.

    Positive things about now

    Yes I do the same but I much prefer squirty hand soap in the kitchen and on the bathroom sink but needs must if I can't find any. Back to using a bar of soap again.

    Positive things about now

    Plenty in the Coles here but none in Woolworths. Also tried everywhere for liquid hand soap. Shelves bare in both Coles and Woolworths, all the chemists including Priceline and also Kmart - shelves are bare. Even tried the Reject Shop not one of them has the hand soap. You know the stuff I mean. I have some spare and I've given a couple to my neighbour. The stores haven't had any for nearly two weeks. Will have to resort to the good old bar of soap instead.

    Sydneysiders laid back life style

    I have worked hard all my working life so Sydney was no different to any other place I've worked. I enjoyed living there even though I'm not a city person. We lived in a nice area and our boys played with all the other neighbours' kids when they were growing up. We seemed to have plenty of time for leisure activities and I never felt stressed. Sydney is probably one of those places you either love or you hate.

    Corona Virus

    I 't have to say the vast majority of people are abiding closely to the rules. There will always be a moron or two who don't though. Most of the people here who are Covid-19 positive were on a cruise ship then of course mingled with the locals. A couple of others brought it in from overseas.

    It could be caused by sweating constantly @simmo or are you on any medication now? Could be an allergy to that.

    491 family Sponsorship WA

    This is the only piece of information I could find. You really need to talk to a migration agent and make sure the agent is registered with MARA as there are a lot of cowboys out there. What rights do Australian citizens and permanent residents have to bring relatives to live in Australia? Australian citizens and permanent residents do not have an absolute right to bring any relative to live in Australia. Even legally married spouses and dependent children must meet all the requirements for migration before they can come to Australia. The intended visa applicant and all of his/her family members AND the sponsor must meet a range of legal requirements before a visa can be obtained. Prior to commencing the process of sponsoring family members, it is important that you secure proper advice in order to ensure that the most appropriate and beneficial visa is applied for. This is particularly important where complex family relationships, previous marriages or previous sponsorships are an issue. Many of the problems that arise with Family Stream Visa applications can be avoided if proper advice is sought before proceeding with an application. In some cases, such advice may need to include advice on family law issues as well as migration issues.
