Re: Lebanon explosion - the witch hunt begins

My townhouse in TEDA had some door rattling late that night. We were 3 km from the blast site. Evacuated for 4 days to Tianjin City becaus...

Re: Emirates Covering COVID?

Got the same info and Dubai is open to tourists. Is a great offer that, yes, others may follow.
But, they have spent truckloads on the World Expo 2020 starting October.

Re: Trump's State Sanctioned Appropriation of TikTok

Something is simmering in Aussie.
Heard the CEO of Tiktok Australia on a Sydney radio station today throwing out a pre-emptive plea to leave tiktok alone and not make it a political football.

Lucky you did not have to use the usual appointment method starting at 5.30am.
Now that’s a bummer.

Re: School restarts.

Brian I hope all schools open up for everyday.
My girl does 2 days one week and 3 the following week. Totally frustrating. They can’t possibly learn anything at that rate.

Re: Miscellaneous COVID-19/Corona Virus Discussion, Questions, etc.

Just messaging with a friend in Aussie and he said to have some fun and try something on google. Place in google any 3 digit number, followed by “new cases” and see the results. I’ve done it a few times and there is always headlines with that exact number of cases. He reckons a conspiracy is around ...

Re: power bill reductions (covid-19)

All back to normal with the bills.
Just an increase on the main house meter of 36kwh with 634kwh total from last month.

2nd granny flat meter has risen from 2kwh to 14kwh.

No idea what the voltage is. So fortunately no stress there.

Works to expand the lake have ...
