    Where is this photo taken? (Anyone can post a photo)

    Pretty close, its Sanctuary Wood (Hill 62), as you say near Ypres. Chaotic collection of recovered WW1 memorabilia in the museum, but the retained trenches give a feel for life on the Western Front.

    Well with no close guesses, this is the Russian Orthodox Church in Vienna, just along the street from the British Embassy.

    Yes the DPD is coming - I have a relative doing the training at Border Force over the coming months. Will be a big change when it comes - imagine the production issues that the TV show will face when they say - "but you signed this and it is a legal document" as they slap it down on the counter. 😂

    I know of a QF A380 FO who had to do labouring for a long period, but who is now getting a seat in the B787. An A380 FA who is driving for Sydney trains. My brother on the other hand was at the airport (SYD) day after day meeting passengers from overseas, with inadequate PPE. Can't help but...

    British Airways restarting Sydney flights this year?

    I only threw this in because it was such an unexpected encounter. It was antiques day at Spitalfields market, and who should turn up but the man who makes a living from others turning up ancient objects. Not sure how this one will go:

    Surely by now there have been enough failures on both sides of the Vic/NSW border to stop all this blame stuff. Vic suffered more from its own failures (Wave 2), just as NSW has suffered the most from the Limo driver. Pandemics are like that - mistakes are made. Right now we are about to have...
