    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    I have had probably half a dozen of the 2013 and always enjoyed it, as have those that I have shared it with. Fair buying at that price

    Vaccine Rollout in Australia - personal accounts.

    24 hours post my 2nd Pfizer dose, arm less sore than last time and no other effects, maybe a very slight headache if anything. In and out in 30 minutes at the Noarlunga clinic south of Adelaide again, all still running very efficiently.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Spent just shy of 6 hours in line on Tuesday with wife and kids and the police were constantly driving up and down the line. Most people I could see were on phones in car and I did not see police stop once. We were getting tested due to being at a Tier 1 exposure site (our part now downgraded to...

    The COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Australia has begun

    Not sure those complaining are trying hard enough (or at all). My in laws were in the anti AZ brigade until very recently, this morning FIL advised he had booked in for his first jab this afternoon, MIL advised she would book in for hers soon. An hour later she was booked in with him. Both were...

    Vaccine Rollout in Australia - personal accounts.

    Just had my first Pfizer shot at the Noarlunga hub south of Adelaide CBD. Fairly efficient process from check-in, to jab, to observation period. All completed within 40 minutes. For anyone else in Adelaide looking at booking an appointment, every time I have checked the mass hubs Noarlunga has...

    No Qantas flight change notification

    I recently flew ADL-DRW-ADL and both the inbound (1hr later) and outbound (2hrs earlier) flights were changed after booking, assume due to assignment of operation of the route to Alliance, and I did not receive any notification of either change. I was travelling with 2 other people who were both...

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    I agree with this. As far as I can tell you are in SA. I would recommend checking out some of the Ed Cellars in Mitcham tastings. The staff in their bottleshop are super friendly and helpful and will definitely guide you in making some purchases to start dabble in other wine regions.

    That's good buying! I picked up some 2010 Dom for $175 through a mate who buys WET exempt and thought that was good. Have had 1 bottle of it so far and it was drinking well.

    Nice wines I have drunk recently - Red or White

    Agree with your views on it and quite enjoyed it. I took it along to a Duck and Pinot night and it was very well received by all.
