NRL is back
If you see a “Do not disturb sign” anywhere near the sitting room, Dad is watching NRL. It starts this Thursday. Please respect his space. And keep the fridge full of his favourite thirst-quencher.
Big worry
Someone sent this: The boat named No Worries taking in water.
Doctor’s warning
The National Doctors Association sent this yesterday to help people avoid contracting the coronavirus when it arrives in PNG: avoid being in a crowd, shaking hands, sharing cigarettes, sharing betel nut and mustard, avoid attending a church service, sporting gathering and traditional gathering, avoid a political rally, attending school, going to a market and shopping mall.
Freedom Day
World Freedom Day 2020 yesterday passed with hardly a whisper. Maybe covid-19 is so serious it is distracting everyone.
Covid-19 jokes
Is it okay to make Coronavirus memes and jokes?
Humor can relieve anxiety (but) can also stoke racial tensions or spread misinformation. So, the answer isn’t simple.
Public funds
Some people in the villages heap praises on their MPs when a new school, road, health center are built. They seem to think that the money comes directly out of their MPs pocket. No, the money belongs to them, the people.
Thought for today
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Top quote
“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what’s it like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.” – (actor) Robin Williams
