hear the bells chiming for you and me...
It looks best when TV presenters wear outfits appropriate for the season.  Their appearance sends a chill when summer clothes are worn in winter.
 But i guess that winter clothes become unnecessary when the work environment is warm. 
It is just as well to spare some energy consumption and spare the creation of carbon emissions.

 old timer and unrelated to following words.
Anti social men behind the wheel, burning rubber, smoke and high speed stunts are shown in media only to be copied by more hot heads.
 Victoria Police members suffer road tragedy. But their action is required against those who use the main roads as drag strips.  Motor cyclists are into this as well.  Anyone who lives near a major road hears these people roar along often, but not only, late at night.  Police presence may nip the behaviour in the bud.  It is prevention. And the newer European police vehicles might prove their worth.

arbor update.....simple message but a difficult purposeful choice of direction...

will i be home before the sun sinks below the horizon?
Imagine if nations asked the UK or USA why they failed to better manage the pandemic? For them to be answerable for many thousands of deaths. This is just as  important as the origins of the virus.  It would not make much difference whether they knew about the origins or not their management was below standard. 
Would the UK and USA be irritated, threaten to end trade, belittle others, deflect blame and all the rest of it. You bet you.

Not on every stroll we take do we meet a python!  Out of 'iso'.  Out of reptile hibernation in this chiily season. A Darwin carpet snake. Likes a diet of small animals. Beautiful skin.
National tally of covid is in small numbers under ten.  Lock down is eased with caution in minor aspects while keeping up usual distance, clean hands, testing, and isolation during  illness.

a well wisher pinned these small 'pockets' to many trees in this park.  They held a little message that offered good advice or solace. And check out the bark on this tree.'hug me' was a variation. 
'Challenges are opportunities for me to grow.  The more i learn the more equipped i am to handle whatever situations come up.' 
Good intentioned but these cute messages are a source of cross infection.

still counting

Open space, park, sports area vivid with squeeky green grass and with attention from  workers spreading top soil and mowing. Not too long before sports are resumed after lock down when very gradual easing of restrictions are commenced. 
P K on ABC tv mornings would know when sport resumes as he is a fine sport encyclopaedia.
Everything is relative as to our hardships. Cash straped and joblessness is very  significant other than that it is concerning to find a lot of problems and fragility because of the lock down. We have become too genteel or something. Or is it the media presentation?

National tally nearly 7000 and growth of spread is very diminished. So far so very good.

Playground is out of bounds.  No crowds of little cycalists or climbers having fun. Very obiedient.
Covid total 6700 nationally.  New cases have low rates. Testing is stepped up almost for all and sundry. CovidSafe App is in use since Sunday and use is growing voluntarily.  
 If there is no secondary flare up we could share medical supplies with others.
  Did the supermarkets want high demand to develope?  It was strange that they had little foresight and failed to begin rationing far earlier than they did and their logistics put to better use. Same with the upswing in postal services.  With shops closed and people wanting items for the lock down more mail orders would naturally follow and swamp postal services.
Would be surprising if we dont go back to how we were and drop various changes. Time will tell.
