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.

secret weapon

The end of the line and an uncommon little railway station at the bay.

 We got the US administration with a secret weapon namely our infected minister. He had to be good for something.

fools paradise?

No obvious concerns over THE virus in this establishment. What is ahead?
 Our services are not on the back foot, we are fortunate that way. I am trialing social distance and isolation to some extent. Stocking up extra food is simply to limit my shopping trips in the event of widespread flu.

keeping in line

ScoMo: whatever was i thinking yesterday? Your benevolence is heavenly

Mr Morrison talks and talks such as in todays pronouncements which didnt say anything new at all and took ages to cover. Same old lines...treasury success (at whose cost?)...superior to the previous government ad naus... (despite our survival of the GFC)
Mr Frydenberg has totally mastered the art of never answering a question in an interview. Both of them force me to switch off.
The darn surplus we were meant to have.

Changes to the club are well done. Difficult to say where the original ends and the updates begin.

social club

An almost historic example on the New South border
