How are you Stacy?

 

I'm doing alright thanks 🙂 we (partner and I)  are concerned for family members going through health issues at the moment, but personally we're good. Just on the countdown to finish university now, it's been such a long road and I want it over with now! My partner is enrolling onto a PGCE for teaching so we're going to be at the same university for the next year xD 

How are things your way?

Things are fine thanks.  😀  So is it the end of uni for you next year?   That's nice that your partner is at the same uni   ............  you can support each other with all the ups and downs.

Good to hear 🙂

Yeah the end is next year! I've got some ideas of where I want to work, just not sure if I'll be brave enough as a NQN haha. 

Yeah definitely we will!

Why the need for the insult.

I frankly find many of your posts indecipherable but that might be because I'm liberal minded and think caring for humanity is our most valuable characteristic

He doesn't mean it as an insult. At least I didn't take it as one.

I live with lymphoma. My immune system is poor.

All this distancing and alcohol gels and hand washing was my norm way before covid.

But you become complacent after time. It's just human nature. Then I catch a cold and it takes months to get over it.

People will become complacent, and we will have a winter spike in Europe and the USA. Maybe bad enough to lock down again.

It's pointless blaming people. It's just human nature. It will happen.

Sorry to hear. A chronic haematology condition can be very restrictive. Agree with your points.

IKNOWCB....Officially finished for the year! We've been given a rough guide for our last year... most of it will be online, except for a few tutorials, practical lessons and of course placement. Understandable but still gutting, I'm more motivated when I'm physically there. Our class is being split into two so we have more room when we do go in.  Just doing some extra reading now, really don't feel like I know enough still! 

Hi Stacey, hope all is well for you. I know how you feel regarding online study. My daughter has just started uni and feels same about classes rather than online. What are you studying?

I have to admit, it does become bothersome walking down the village high street saying hello to everyone. Covid is a blessing in some ways because you can hide behind the mask.

No need to get sarcastic. We all have different preferences about rural vs village vs town vs big city living and we are ALL right. It’s personal choice and no reflection on anyone’s personality

Just been reading the comments from Thredbo and Perisher/Smiggins/Blue Cow skiers, and consensus is that it was some of the finest powder skiing Australia has seen..  Just when they thought the season was over...

Keir starmer I meant, darn auto correct.

I thought he was quite clued up. Seems to have had Boris on the ropes a few times.

Don't know what they were playing at with Corbyn. Corbyn has his place as a back bencher, but he should never have stood for the leadership.

Clued up maybe, a true socialist he isn't. He's sacked all the Corbyn allies and is distancing himself from.Corbyns legacy...in order to gain power. I get that. 

I joined the Labour party because of Corbyn. I think the man is an absolute legend. I was genuinely gutted at each GE defeat. I could go on but it'd be boring. I won't be voting for Starmer's party. I've 4 years till we no longer qualify and to be perfectly honest I think they've made their beds now. I'll  concentrate on politics here. Nobody to hold a torch to Corbyn's vision in Aus though sadly..though we have a few decent Labor MPs

I went to uni with the current member for mirrabooka. She is a wonderful truly genuine person. I do wish we had more MPs like her. But you do need to get into power if you really want to make a difference.

Is that to get more sunshine in the garden? Or another reason?

 

It was too far forward in the bed, and the garden is north facing, so it was starving everything behind it of light. Too big to transplant.

I don't like removing healthy plants, and it was a lovely japonica. Beautiful colours. But as long as you replace it with something else, then I can justify it.

I have to move a very substantial wandering rose in November. Again, it's too far forward. That's going to be a challenge to keep it alive. But I did move half a dozen substantial plants last winter, and they are all doing well. So fingers crossed.

We bought two years ago, and the garden was very overgrown. It has taken a lot of work to bring it back under control.

No one wants socialism. No party would ever go down that path here.

You have a point

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/aug/23/first-private-equity-holds-us-to-ransom-now-it-wants-us-to-bail-out-its-losses

The problem is that it requires a lot of understanding in order to appreciate what the Tories are doing but Corbyn didn't just have to be a principled person, he had to have the hunger to win, to destroy the Tories and recognise that England is now a nation of aspirants all wanting the equivalent of a private school education, own a house and have a new BMW, hard to marry principles and ruthlessness, but if you're not in power principles are worthless.

Sorry, but that is how it is.

Have you ever heard an Australian politician refer to themself as a socialist ? They wouldn't last long.

Australia is about working hard and reaping the rewards for your efforts.

Even the ALP would never dare call themself socialists. It would be political suicide. They are struggling enough as it is without that poisonous label.

I see your man Andrew Bolt has had a go at your Premier calling him lethally incompetent.

He is doing his best, but some mistakes have obviously been made with the Hotel quarantine setup.

I wouldn't be as harsh as Andrew Bolt.

Just a quick reminder to try and keep your political discussions off this thread, we have managed to do that for many years and have lots of other threads available you can post that type of stuff on.

 Thanks

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

WTH.  😐  BBC columnist Richard Morrison recently called for Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory to be scrapped for being "crudely jingoistic". He wrote in the BBC Music Magazine that it would be "insensitive, bordering on incendiary" to sing the songs in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests.
