Lindybird: Brilliant - get me a nice bottle of red wine and some dark chocolate. Also good that your hard drive requires no effort; now I'm wondering about Heather's back up thingy. Re OG, at least we get to whine and rant to each other. Hope they get sorted out soon.
My turn to whine & rant LOL. Medi staff cheerfully said “That’s end of first week” and I thought “It’s only 4 days”. Then they asked about my weekend plans. Yes, well, a lot to look forward to - staying home? I was early, was praised, I was first for the day and out of there by 8.35 am! The coolest day this & next week so, having taken my camera, I drove to Port Adelaide, wandered ½ hour photo-ing, then home, lunch, sleep and here it is 3 pm with reading to be done before tea. BTW all of next week’s appts are between 8.30 & 9 am. No parking problems!
Bacon is so good by itself that to put it in any other food is an admission of failure. You're basically saying, I can't make this other food taste good, so I'll throw in bacon. (Penn Jillette)
Bacon bits are like the fairy dust of the food community. (Jim Gaffigan)
It's a proven fact that all plans involving bacon have a 90 percent better chance of working out. (Jeff Gunhus)
LINDA – I shall be interested to hear how the “punched” arm continues. How long before second jab?
Aussieland has not yet approved any vaccine, probably very soon and jabs starting next month. Yesterday no “locally-transmitted” covid in whole of Aust. The only few cases were Aussies returned from overseas & already in quarantine hotels. Complaints of double standards with 10,000s of Aussies still trying to get home, yet tennis players are being flown in for 2 weeks quarantine before Aussie Open. There is a bunch in a brand new hotel in North Adelaide, allowed out for 5 hours practice a day under strict supervision, for exhibition matches at end of month.
AQ: Dang, OZ is doing really well while our numbers are climbing - I'm assuming it's still the holiday surge here. Big weekend plans I see - about as busy as mine. :-) Your day sounds pretty good - how many more four-day weeks left?
Somehow got hooked on Babylon Berlin (German series set in Germany before WWII). The production is very good, the pace is fast; they did a great job on dubbing and the dubbed voices actually seem to go with the faces/characters in the story, but it's rather grim and appears to be getting a whole lot grimmer, so not sure how much longer I'll stick with it. I may be forced to watch Doc Martin reruns. Meanwhile, my Starry Night jigsaw is about 50% done and should be getting easier in that there are only about 500 pieces left. Trouble is they're all blue!
ANNETTE - Next week 5 days, then 4 days (Aust Day holiday on 26th) and finish with 2 days in Feb to make up the magic 15. I haven't been out so many days in a row for. . . years!!! As for covid, our country has believed in early sudden severe lockdowns and worry about the economy later.
I am off to watch "Planet of Treasures" with Christopher Clark. A series on UNESCO World Heritage sites. Tonight SE Asia. Followed by on ancient version of "Escape to the Country". Another knitted beanie completed.
