Re: The spreading coronavirus.....

Went to the local Coles supermarket this morn and was met at the entrance by a young lady who asked me if I was familiar with the new rules. Negative; so she told me that I had to keep 1.5 metres distant from other customers and that I must use a basket or a trolley. I complied and put the wrapped b...

Payback Time.

The Western Australian Government has closed all gun shops, firearms repairers etc, apparently even one-man operations. A gunsmith working at home can't serve a customer, for health reasons, but he can invite him into the kitchen for a cuppa or a beer. The WA Govt recently lost a few cases against s...

Re: The spreading coronavirus.....

We're doing all the right things, especially hygiene. I'm even boiling the water when I make tea. On a serious note though, the Federal and State Governments are doing the right things and non-essential services, Government and private are shutting and, for the first time ever, State Borders are bei...

Re: The spreading coronavirus.....

I was at a public hospital today where my wife nurses and in the Public Toilet some real brain has decided that the spare toilet rolls, which are left on top of the cubicle partitions (for convenience in the convenience :) ) should be glued in place.
