    You stood up to and even took up arms against your colonial master. You are to be admired for that. The closest we came to rebellion over British rule was the Eureka Revolt when hundreds of miners took up arms against the British over mining claims.

    @Kate Ellery a Qld hotel is the centre of an expected Covid new strain cluster after six cases were discovered. Gladys is now asking any New South residents that used the hotel for quarantine after flying home to again isolate for two weeks and get tested. Well done Palaszchuck.

    We Aussies will get our first doses from an imported vaccine in Feb Louise. While out locally produced vaccine will likely be available in March or April. Louise we have held off from Covid vaccinations as our case numbers are minimal plus the govt. wants to allow the people that approve all medicines/vaccines for public use to complete their job and not cut corners.

    Feb now Kate. But only the imported vaccine. Have you heard that Australia is looking at adding Novavax to our CSL produced vaccines for our population and other nations.

    Kate we can rejoice here in Sydney as the Northern Beaches cluster is now officially done and dusted. Thank goodness we have avoided any new strain cases. Sydney has now been three days without a single case. Brisbane is hosting a cricket Test match starting today with half ground capacity allowed. Too many in my book. Our Sydney match was only permitted a quarter crowd capacity. How are you SAussies traveling? @Kate Ellery

    Craig and Kate, it sounds like y'all are beating the virus.

    I called and looked online today to see if I can get the vaccine. Nobody has it available right now. They say get back in touch in a few days.

    Craig someone / somewhere got news that 3 men had traveled to Adelaide from Brisbane that had been in the infected hotel (in Brisbane) ( with the new strain ) They pounced on them and put them in quarantine in Adelaide but one of them is no where to be found ..they are not even sure if they were effected but not taking any chances
    so it’s no second chances here in SA ..if any suspicion of being near anyone with the virus ... ..your in the lockup for 14 days.

    Good on Sydney for going in hard and stopping the spread ...let that horrible virus know it’s not wanted here in Australia ..we’d love to do a little travel in our one year old ( new) car but each interruption makes us wary:eek::confused::mad:

    Just because we get the vaccine doesn't mean we don't have to wear a mask and also keep our distances and keep on washing our hands with the disinfecting stuff..
    We MUST keep on being very safe regardless of the vaccine or not..
    Eventually we will be OK, but till then...……………. STAY SAFE …..

    You bet this new strain is not wanted in Australia Kate or America or Canada. The Brits are being hit hard by it as is Thomas Stearn's Germany. The vaccines to create herd immunity cant come soon enuff for our world which has now passed the 2 million death point.
