    Season Restart

    First thought was it might be a case of preparing for a worse case scenario, one or two players come down with the virus once games commence, so will need all players to have a reasonable level of fitness if called on. Giving a run out to those who are a bit behind after the fitness checks ?

    Is that the 4 part one , Murder in the outback? There does seem something very odd about that murder and the resulting investigation

    There is a new documentary released last week, called Who Killed Jeffery Epstein?. Very similar to the netflix one, interview a lot of the same people , but it goes into a bit more detail and also looks into who could have wanted him "suicided" https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/tv/news/jeffrey-epstein-who-killed-true-crime-documentary-suicide-conspiracy-tv-a9551201.html

    Have you watched Pine Gap? Not as intense as Secret city , and a bit slow in places but worth a watch, a political thriller (6 episodes) For one reason or another missed out originally on a lot of the American shows until they appeared on netflix. 24 is one on the list to watch but currently working my way through Homeland and very much enjoying it. Good writing keeping the interest with different scenarios in each series and cliff hangers on each episode wanting you to watch just one more before bedtime .

    "donald"

    It was reported on the news here that there had been a couple of smallish fires in the entrance . There is a video knocking about of a Australian channel l 7 news crew being attacked by police when they moved everybody out of the area so Trump could do his photo op, not sure if it is mentioned on that video but it is from the broadcast that I was watching live

    Life on Mars was a brilliant series, We have had quite a bit of British/Irish crime/drama series added to our two streaming services in Aus over the last few months and obviously with lots of downtime we have been catching up. One in particular starring John Simm was White Dragon was very good (believe it was called Strangers, in the UK). Others that were decent The Dublin Murders (slow starting but worth sticking with) Prey (series 1 starring John Simm and series 2 Phillip Glenister) The Tunnel series 2 and 3 So/So White Lines (Netflix) - Produced by Alex PIna (Money Heist) Decent cast and a promising story line (mysterious death, drugs, Ibiza) but way too long could have easily been 6 episodes instead of 10 and loads of unnecessary sex scenes, (never thought i would ever say that, must be getting old :)) A couple of Australian shows that you may find on UK/USA netflix (or on the high seas) that are worth a watch Mr Inbetween (2 series) - comedy drama about a underworld hit man/nightclub bouncer Utopia - (4 series) cross between the office and yes minister about a government infra structure department. Lamb of God (4 episodes (dark crime drama, reminded me of The Wickerman (film) ) Secret City (2 Series) - Political espionage

    Only one winner in this episode, Barnard Castle , The local council would have to spend a fortune in advertising for worldwide publicity like that.

    If it is going down that route, at least make it entertaining, the electronic device also transmits a electric shock to the player as well as alerting the ref . The more out of position a player is when not performing social distancing the higher the voltage.

    The FA will do what they usually do. The Premier League will flash a fiver and the FA will get out the lube and bend over.

    Agree, it is going to be interesting to see what happens with the Rugby League on the East Coast once it gets up and running. I would hope the WA Gov if they are seriously considering the PL thing , will be monitoring it , as it could possibly be the blueprint but on a much larger scale with 20 teams and officials from outside the border instead of one It does seem at the moment that stringent checks are being carried out, at least one player from the NZ team was stopped from travelling because he had a cough. Obviously no one can account for human behviour, particular for those involved in sporting codes with a reputation for out of office activities.

    That is one of the reasons why I'm against it. As for the Australian federal government they don't give a shit (see cruise ships) they just want the economy back on track and are busy bribing people to download their 3 million dollar placebo ,but as for the Western Australia State government, if they give the go ahead I would be hopeful considering their actions so far ,that they would have measures in place for the above scenario not to happen. It is the measures by the State Governments that have helped drop the curve NOT the Federal Government who have been brought to the table kicking and screaming

    bit more info on the idea https://www.foxsports.com.au/football/premier-league/australia-is-ideal-premier-league-clubs-in-talks-to-finish-season-in-perth/news-story/8a02c3defcf68f621f65cb3663a668b8 *Just to add to the above , the State Premier said in his press conference yesterday that he had not been approached by either the agent trying to organise it , sport west or the premier league. As silly an idea as it sounds , I'm against it by the way, some points in my view as to why it is being proposed and on paper could happen Currently the Weather (we are in late Autumn, Winter starts in June) is ideal for football. Occasionally a day in the top 20's c / lower 80's f) but the rest is moderate think early UK summer, winter nights it very rarely drops below 0) Perth is pretty isolated as it is, borders are locked down (External and Internal) and has a low population per sq kilometre in the Greater Perth area. We have low transmission rates (excluding those from cruise ships) https://ww2.health.wa.gov.au/Articles/A_E/Coronavirus/COVID19-statistics The WA covid response is being driven by the state premier and state government , not the knobheads at federal level. So it as been fairly successful and sensible There are more than enough bases available to use as training bases and currently empty facilities (, other sporting codes ,hotels) etc to accomodate squads and staff. At a push these could also be additional venues that could host games to shorten the time span. For instance https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Australian_Athletics_Stadium Not ideal for spectator viewing of a footy match ( went to a FFA cup game there couple of years ago) but would work behind closed doors. The infrastructure is very good . For instance to get from the main City roughly the bottom of the Greater Perth (Mandura )area to the one at top (Joondalup) on a good day is an hour by coach on a bad day an hour twenty.(our speed limits are slightly lower here than in the UK, Motorway works out at 62 mph) Broadcast facilities are already in place and currently not being used . The return of the Rugby here would still leave enough available They would probably use the model that it is currently being used in the rugby League for the New Zealand team and the Au teams on the East Coast. Two week isolation upon arrival and daily checks https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-05-02/coronavirus-new-zealand-warriors-nrl-australia-travel-permission/12208602

    Just woke up to this news, very sad. Very talented keyboard player which along with JJ's Bass gave The Stranglers that unique sound that set them apart in the early punk scene and over the following years.

    Coronavirus

    Touching on shortages of protective equipment and supplies, don't know about the UK but there was a massive increase of daigou changing from the usual of baby formula and vitamins going on in Australia in January and February, CCP funded "businessmen' and businesses in Australia got the instruction and acted accordingly, this coupled with the current minister for border affairs Peter the spud Dutton (department responsible for the Ruby Princess fiasco) being the person who did the last Pandemic stockpile review and cut millions from it, leads us to the shortages in Australia now.

    Yes, some little things I've personally noticed, some taken for granted and not really thought about them ..Some are coming about because more people are working from home. The effect on nature, in just a few weeks in my local park, bird numbers are increasing to levels I have not seen before. Although normally not noticeably polluted, the air seems a lot fresher . More dogs seem to be getting a walk People seem to be a lot more friendly/wanting interaction , having a chat walking their dogs (obviously observing social distancing ), probably to do with having a common subject - the virus In my immediate neighbourhood people interacting more (again observing recommendations about distancing etc) with the elderly and other neighbours ,for instance checking if they are running short of anything , Collectively offering to share stuff like hand sanitiser etc, helping out a couple who have both just been made unemployed. Although obviously there will be a few bad eggs , it does seem that people are looking out for each other a bit more. Found out the names of people who I regularly see at the park when previously only knew their dogs names . Quite strange really thinking about it that you have said hello to somebody for the last few years nearly every day and didnt know their name, nor them yours. Reassuring that now the other half is working from home as well, knowing that we can spend 24 hours a day 7 days a week in the same space and not kill each other (joke), bodes well for a few years time in our retirements One downside, having to shop for the Mother and Father in Law as they are under house arrest , and their reluctance to try other brands of stuff making completing their weekly shopping requirements a nightmare.

    Coronavirus

    Unfortunately when you have politician's family and members of the Prime Ministers "Religiou$" cult aboard a cruise ship riddled with the virus, that is somehow allowed to offload without checks and its passengers allowed to spread the virus freely to the majority of states within Australia those strict border controls are useless. *For further reading just type Ruby Princess in google, criminal investigation currently going through the motions because of a public outcry. But yes , if the failed marketing man that is in charge of Australia had locked the borders down in a reasonable amount of time maybe those strict border controls would have been useful, . Still he has given Australia to God in one of his private happy clappy group video chats (on tax payers time and from a tax payer funded office) with members who are apparently being protected from the virus by the blood of Christ ,and he has been working his preying knees hard , so we are safe now . Luckily each State Government in AU is now acting independently in implementing its own restrictions, must say ours in WA as been quite pro-active and very impressive in both its actions and promotion. WA borders are now closed except for essentials . Unfortunately from what I have seen this Easter holiday so far (from news reports, social media etc ) will I think lead to greater enforced restrictions in the next week, because it seems people can not be trusted to act on advice. I can only look across the Tasman Sea in awe at what a real leader of a country has done to protect its citizens, I and wider family have been implementing what the NZ PM and lately WA state Premier have been advocating, and completely ignoring the advice of Australia's Pentecostal Moron. Stay safe everyone

    For small cracks (insert Frankie Howard image ) flour, salt (3to1 ish ratio) a drop of paint (water based) mix it into a thick paste : Source: old decorator who i served part of my apprenticeship with, didnt believe him but he brought some in and showed me .* Amazing how the memory is jogged when something like this crops up *Edit, he used it to fill between skirting and wall and cracks in the door frame, can't attest for its longevity though

    Not to worry the pope has asked his invisible friend to end the virus. Would think Italy will be one the first to receive the magic touch

    Coronavirus

    Heard on the ABC in Au yesterday that the UK Gov were in talks to purchase land and buildings to use as burial and morgue/storage sites because cremations and other facilities will be stretched. so obviously not a big secret. Also mentioned using empty hotels as emergency testing / isolation centres. Is it not just forward planning in case it is needed.??

    Coronavirus

    There is no evidence that dogs can get this particular strain of corona virus but can have secondary contamination. i.e infected stroking a dog and you stoke the same dog within a period of time WHO issued a statement on the 13th of March The Hong Kong dog has been released as it tested for secondary contamination from its infected owner and did not contract the virus
