  1. How condescending of you to assume my understanding of lockdowns. I am well aware of why they happen. I have obeyed the rules each time to do my bit to keep everyone safe, so please read my comments again with that in mind. I just stated what is happening on the ground here in answer to the question posed by the poster. At no time did I say that I opposed vaccination. However, there are people who for health reasons cannot be vaccinated, and to deny them medical care of any description as you stated, is totally wrong and selfish, let alone your offensive comment about removing "the stupid from the gene pool". There are a lot of people in Australia who are vaccine hesitant because of the bad press about Astrazenica, and I am sure that is partly because we have fared much better here than other countries, and they either don't see the need for it, or are perhaps scared of the new technology involved in the making the these MRNA vaccines. I blame the government for a large part in this as the whole rollout of the vaccine has been a shambles in organisation and with nowhere enough vaccine available for those who want it. The constant media and government push is wearing very thin, and if you know anything of peoples attitudes, when being pushed into something, they dig their feet in.
  2. I have family in Victoria and Queensland (that I haven't seen for 20 months), and I can tell you it isn't too good over there at the moment. The "rules" seem to change daily, the fines are ludicrous, and the people are beginning to get mightily cheesed off. I think that one of the issues is that each state premier has a different slant on how to deal with it, and do so according to their ego and power play,. Last weekend there were Freedom Rallies in every capital city around Australia. All were well attended and peaceful, with the exception of NSW and Victoria. NSW stopped all transport into the city and flooded Sydney with police and fining everyone for being out in public. Victorian police rocked up part way through the rally dressed in full riot gear and firing rubber bullets and tear gas! There is plenty of video evidence on the internet to show that the Melbourne Rally was peaceful until the police appeared, and the whole situation is just inflaming the general population. Behind a lot of this is the coercion to bring in mandatory vaccination and vaccine passports to even leave your own state to travel within Australia. Many people are against forced vaccination believing "my body, my choice" and I totally agree with that as I think we should have the final say over what we do to our bodies, as per our Constitution, but I think the government have gone about the whole thing too forcefully and with bad planning, so there are lots of rumblings of discontent among the population. WA so far has been lucky that we haven't been inundated with cases, but it is only a matter of time, and like very many other people around the world, I think we just have to learn to live with it. What scares me most though is that the police in Victoria would turn on a peaceful rally with such a show of force..... not sure where that will end, but I don't think it will be good for any of us.

    In Willetton just off Rostrata Avenue. There is a small shopping centre next to a medical centre/pharmacy. Local family own it and it is good for brekkie, lunch and just coffee and cake. Small place, but great food and atmosphere. Have you been to Ruby's Bakehouse on Beasley Ave in Leeming? That is good too for brekkie, lunch etc. they also have an outside area under cover and allow dogs.

    Great isn't it. Apart from the scenery being amazing, it really brings home a lot of the issues that are in outback Australia with all the issues of races and cultures, and how they are as opposed to how they could be, if only people weren't so bigoted.

    I am always on the lookout for a good cafe for brekkie, brunch, lunch, and recently I have been taken to 2 establishments in the southern suburbs. The Roastery in Canning Vale roasts and sells coffee beans, and their coffee (takeout and dine in) is yum. The cafe menu is varied, and the daily specials are always a bit different. It is a warehouse feel with cement floors and no matching furniture, and a great place for a brunch or lunch. 6 Willows Cafe in Willetton. They are a small local business that cater to the breakfast and lunch crowd, and have amazing cakes for morning tea. Their menu is small, but there are daily specials that are always a bit different. Both of these businesses are family owned and run, and I like to support them because of that.

    It is on Netflix, which is where I watched it. Absolutely brilliant!

    Mystery road

    Yes it was a good series. It started as a standalone movie in 2013 and then became a series until 2018. Some very good actors in it. Aaron Pedersen, Hugo Weaving and Jack Thompson, to name a few. I like Aaron Pedersen and watched him recently in the Jack Irish movies.

    I have been to the Riverton Bar and Grill quite a few times of late, and can thoroughly recommend it. The family who own it are Thai/Australian, so the menu reflects this. They have two eating areas, the general Cafe style area and the Sports Bar area, and if you are into Sports, they have big screen tv's that show all the big matches etc. Prices are pretty much average compared to other places, and the food is good quality and well cooked.

    Bricklayer - White Card?

    From personal experience of trying to find a handyman to come and do various jobs that are beyond me now I am an old fart, I know for certain that there is a huge lack of tradies who are prepared to do small jobs. Anything from hanging doors, installing skirting, relaying a patio, building brick retaining walls in a garden, replacing rusted gutters, plastering over exposed brick, knocking down part walls and making good.... and the list is endless.... all smallish jobs, but finding someone to even come and quote for such things these days can be pretty hard. So perhaps consider looking at not the big picture of total renovations, but picking up small jobs from people who want to do some of the work themselves, but need a tradie to perform the serious bits. Just a thought!

    Private Schools in Perth

    There are many small private schools in Perth and most are religion specific. Once they know when and where they will be living, I suggest they post here and research from there so we can give more help.

    Perhaps the State Library of Western Australia might be able to help you. They have a separate unit within the Library called "The Battye Library", and they hold a tremendous amount of historical information about the state, so the information you are looking for might be stored there. Please let us know how you go with this.....

    Very strange feel to Australia Day this year as no Skyworks in Perth and so much dissension on whether it should be called "Invasion Day". However in our family we celebrate Australia Day proudly and loudly, and the pool will get a good workout this afternoon after a BBQ lunch. Happy Australia Day to you all!
