    Virologist claims drinking alcohol can protect against the coronavirus A German health official has told people they can drink alcohol to ward off any illness in relation to COVID-19, saying “the higher the percentage of alcohol, the better it is.” This could possibly please a few people here...

    Does Closing Beaches Make Any Sense?

    nonsensical Golden Beach in Gippsland around 1990 was the classic. You could both see and smell it but the local authority took a very long time to be convinced to rectify the issue.

    All International Arrivals into Australia to self isolate for 14 days

    A lot of assumptions here on your behalf. I am not going in for long answers here so work out for yourself what each line is referring to. The Federal Opposition leader holds a press conference on most days and discusses these things and mostly they are happy. A certain degree of trust or...

    All International Arrivals into Australia to self isolate for 14 days

    Not quite the funniest thing I have read today but it's up there. Would I enjoy it? Probably not, but I understand the reasoning and have just done that same thing at home for 14 days. Neither of us went completely mad. o_O 🤡

    Renato1, I would happily continue the discussion if you would actually look the big picture and not get bogged down by your entrenched views at the expense of the facts. You are continually grasping at bits and pieces and ignoring much of what is put to you at the expense of the big picture...

    I got a similar email from Cudo Online Reiki Healing or Added Tarot Card Reading. 🤡 👺

    In this context it is effectively the same thing. Again your response is selective as People have already commented about how your ‘expert’ stands alone with his opinions.

    Another assumption on your behalf.

    Virgin getting very HEAVY re completed credit card refunds. Sad to see.

    I think the point of the OPs post is that VA cancelled the flights and not the OP. This puts a different perspective on it IMHO. We are in the same boat (though our ticket is short haul International) but our ticket was paid for from a travel bank from a previous issue so is different again.

    Good idea thanks. No chemists for us unfortunately! Edit: Traralgon is about 50km away. I can wait a little while if needed. We did have an extra in mid October last year before heading to Europe.

    I am glad you have them available as we certainly don't and our clinic doesn't have any clues about when they will arrive.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere but they must be wondering about these ships. Princess has 18 ships (soon to be 20) and 9 of them are 'Grand Class' ships. All the ships involved with COVID-19 issues are from this class. It does make me wonder if there is a common link between them and...

    Expecting our first order tomorrow between 9am and 2pm. We haven't bought much for weeks so it soon mounted up. o_O

    Science is never exact. It seems that Peter Collignon is standing alone on this one or you have misquoted him and that the majority do not agree with you. This is not an experiment that can be tried and changed. (Oops that didn’t work and sorry we killed those thousands of people per USA)...
