Re: Seen in the News

I had to write out my own resignation on the spot when nursing in a government hospital.
My crime? Being single and pregnant. Job over. That is the way it was....

Tizer...if I was to collect such wondrous objects...they would mean little if I did not dig them from the earth with my own hands.

Re: Seen in the News

I accept you saying that Wendy. I don’t think many of us are in the same situation....and only those of us in that situation can really understand that we may make different decisions to others and possibly view life slightly differently.

Re: Seen in the News

I am in a unique situation. I shall never become a grandparent. My life ends with me. Consequently, so long as my life sustains me, I don’t have any investment in this planet -BUT- I cannot stand waste, especially food waste, overindulgence etc, and I am continually aware of increasing population. I...

Re: Seen in the News

“Single use” plastic ban begins in our state tomorrow. That includes plastic cutlery, straws, drink containers etc.
Big fines if you are a business that uses them.
We have been plastic bag free for years. Thumbs up for “single use” plastic ban!
A huge call for our planet...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Packing, for a cheap-as-chips holiday in a remote, secluded location. Taking the bikes so we can cycle between vineyards and cellar doors. Taking the camera as I want to get some photography in. Taking very little food (breakfast provisions only), as we will be eating out... :good:

Ok. Sorry. I can see we will never be friends. A pity...we had things in common. But I accept our differences. We move in different circles. That is ok. We shall both move on, quietly. :good:

You assume it is the “contractors” who temporarily provide the service fo BG - I am suggesting the “contractors” hire anyone willing to take the risks and do the work.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

That is not PPE, Big Kev...a bit of sanitiser, social distancing and a mask are not adequate PPE. Sorry!

Would YOU go into strange people’s homes doing a job day in and day out, armed with only that? They don’t even have disposable coveralls, shoe covers, gloves etc.

I don’t know, Sue. I think it would be pretty terrifying having a face to face/home to home job like that during Covid lockdown! It’s not as if they are supplied with PPE.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Could be they are having trouble finding anyone who wants to work in jobs dealing face to face with the public and visiting homes....given that you now have over 120,000 dead from Covid! 🤔
