Remember when. So far, I am fortunate and aok over lock down yet knowing i am not risk free.
Good policies are introduced. Lately, a government that you would dream of. What's the catch? A decade of the Lib mantra. And tightness on the less wealthy. Oh!
"Make America Great"  what a situation for every sane American shocked by their rediculous president and his misled followers by his insane popularity and the massive pandemic.
Real Estate is rapped about asking tennants to access super as it is illegal to give financial advice. Far too delicate to say what we really think about pressure such as that. Trust the Libs to originally suggest draw down, hardest on low incomes.

where visitors gather to view fairy penguins come ashore down at the beach at Phillip island. Will the penguins miss seeing everybody during the lock down?
Early March I was thinking of making designer masks, but i partially locked down ahead of the regulations and wondered about risk of shopping for a sewing machine. Op shops would have them.
National total might be close to 5000 but the rate is lower right now..

what bird is that?

these birds are ?  Shearwaters...mutton birds? Cant say. Bustards? These were on 
Phillip island.
The virus has infected 4000 plus. Right now the rate is slower.

Australiana....the fatal shore

Every person for themself. We are told we all have needs in an order of priority and our survival is on top. We are threatened so other countries no longer count for much.
We havnt developed enough to see ouselves as a global family.  Outrageous death rates almost unnoticed. Cruise ship tourists sent packing after processing. True, the cruises were a very unreasonable undertaking.

A WHO expert lost all his credibility in praising Trump for his leadership and unique national  approach to Covid 19. What??

National tally 2600

winding down

still life.
Lock down ordered yesterday but little change this morning at a large centre.. Sales persons said they dont know if their shop will shut or not.
The PM stated non essential services will close today, he ruled out supermarts, banks, fuel and pharmacies. It would have been easy to be more specific and say, for instance, whether home hardware, large  clothing and variety stores were essential or not and might remain open.
At the same time, we can live with a level of uncertainty, will read between the lines, overall we are on target. There are many ways to skin a cat.

meeting my match?

a free space for a photo shoot in the pink, really, the lights focused best when sitting in the opposite direction 

I have lived in times of earthquake, tsunami, the reconciliaton walk, 9/11 and now a pandemic. If I am still around then an asteroid is on my bucket list.
