Have a sneaking suspicion that the Friday relaxations will be nothing too spectacular. Hope I'm wrong.

Also, don't expect Adolf to allow too much in our police state of Vic.
Not normally in the habit of saying "told you so."

But, this time "I told you so."

Doesn't take a degree in brain surgery to know Andrews wasn't going to be bullied or forced into any action that he and his team didn't think Victoria we're ready for. What did Credlin and the rest of the Sky crew have to say about it?

It is not just the major sports that keep us focused but the lock down of the junior sports is an absolute kick in the guts for the older generation. As an Octagerian ones Monday to Friday are somewhat mundane, day to day routines but when ones grandsons/daughters were playing here there and everywhere over the weekend life was much more tolerable. Gotta feel for the young ones as well who particpated in their sports before COVID -19 struck.

Wondering when Adolf will allow travel and stay in Vic?

Dying to have a bit of a break from home gaol as is she who must be obeyed.

What is so different in Vic. to other states?

Adolf? Really? Equating Andrews to Hitler? Tim Smith hasn't even stooped that low and that's saying something.

Wow, that is an ordinary comment. I have no political leaning, but think Andrews is doing a good job.

Perhaps you would like us to open everything and be like the US, UK, etc?

Yeah, it’s tasteless to call people Adolf Hitler.... :eek:

I do hope Benny has the option to take legal action against the AFL. Someone needs to stand up to Adolf.
Isn't Demestos God, The Ruler of the Universe, The Oracle of Truth, The All Knowing and Hitler Reincarnate ?
Disagree 100%. Gil and the board have been pissweak. Saying the AFL doesn't tolerate racism was done in the 90s with Nicky Winmar.. Adolf would have been proactive way way before this.
When Kennett was premier, Trades Hall Council produced a photo of him where the shadow of his nose looked like an Adolph Hitler moustache.

They put on a caption "Zieg Who?"
I had it displayed on my desk at work where it could be publicly seen.

My boss made me take it down eventually but it was up for a good 6 weeks.
Anyone else remember a few years back, Caro leaked some info about the draw that was favourable to us only to have Adolph change it back to favour St Kilda when the official draw was released?

As a single man who lives alone, the lack of physical contact has been tough - looking forward to a hug. Having said that, my Bumble has blown up, so I will be spoilt for choice!

I've been enjoying long walks in the gorgeous weather we've had until the last few days. I was getting a bit too keen on newly acquired culinary skills (OMG my brownies) so I also signed up for the push-up challenge - I've done over 1700 push-ups in the past 12 days, on the way to 3046 in 21 days. Those Bumble ladies are going to love my chest!

Finished lock down today after 7 weeks of not seeing ppl and only allowed to go out to the supermarket once a week. So our little oasis town of Nata is open but we cant got out of town. and not that much here . Its a tourist town .. we only have a a couple of Hardware stores a $2 Chinese shop ..yep Chinese are everywhere , a supermarket ( think County IGA store not a big coles ) a couple of general stores and 3 big Petrol / roadhouses.... Oh being a tourist town on the edge of the biggest salt pans in the world and lots of wide life ... Elephants .. giraffes, zebras .. pink flamingos etc etc etc .. yeah the famous Nata Bird sanctuary and Elephant sands so lots of resorts , hotels , guest houses ,back packers ..lodges etc ( Nata is where the 2 major hwys in southern Africa split usually a lot of traffic.. tourists/ and tourist busses and trucks though here as it the route from Johannesburg to Zim ,Zambia , Kasane and Congo one way or Johannesburg to Maun, Namibia to west Africa , Nigeria the other ).. .So We cant go anywhere for big shopping like clothes etc ( closest is Francistown 2 hours away and were not allowed to go there till Nov ) . Only active cases ( 9 in all ) here all truck drivers from South Africa or Zambia tested when crossing the boarder into Botswana passing from Zambia to SA or SA to Zambia .. mainly copper truck transport .. with copper headed to the ports of SA headed for Chinese from Chinese owned copper mines in Zambia and Congo .
.. Still in state of emergency till Nov here .. so still no bottle shops open till then . So making home brew from apples ..it goes ok .!!. .. Wifey still stuck in Melbourne still no flights back ..maybe in July ..fingers crossed .. have to get a permit to get her and go thought lots of check points to pick her up in Gaborone when she comes back and does quarantine. So its ok ..life is still not that easy . Pretty lonely .. Reding PRE each day helps a lot .. . have also made an new album while in lockdown .. so not all bad here ..

Is this the start of the second wave in Victoria?

10 cases yesterday, and one more death, more than any other state.

Maybe time for the Vic. Govt to reinforce restrictions.

All travellers on public transport have to war masks or be fined.

No travelling in Victoria until at least September unless for medical reasons.

Only allow home deliveries of groceries and food.

No cafes, restaurants or hotels to be opened until at least Sept

Close the Vic. border to all except emergency vehicles.

All to stay at home except for walking or exercise, or to visit a medical centre.

Cancel the AfL for 2020 and close down any other sporting venues.

Heavier fines for anyone breaking the social distancing laws.

Do that and maybe the virus van be wiped out entirely by Christmas.

Any other suggestions to help avoid more deaths and infections.
