Eleven weeks on
It’s now 11 weeks after the State of Emergency was declared and around 50,000 people laid off their jobs are still waiting for Parliament to approve the partial withdrawal of their retirement savings from the superfunds to support their families.
NZ sets example
Our friends down south in Aotearoa (population 4.8mil) are planning to lift all Covid-19 restrictions on Monday, after 11 straight days with no news cases. PNG’s last case was reported in Eastern Highlands on April 23 – six weeks ago. Just saying.
Breaking out
It does not seem anyone in authority is monitoring those arriving from overseas who should be in quarantine for 14 days. Some have been seen in public well before the 14th day.
Rugby exempted
All the Covid-19 hygiene rules we are told to strictly observe for our safety do not apply in sports. Or at least that what was we noted during the NRL matches last weekend. Players and officials must be immune to the Covid-19.
Big upset
It’s a tough one but Brisbane Broncos fan is confident his team will roast the Roosters tonight. He is just so sure of what he already sees as the “biggest upset of the year”.
Big clash
There is also the other big clash between the Melbourne Storms and South Sydney Rabbitohs. Storms fan cannot wait to watch that one.
Siren alert
Drivers must give way when they hear a siren – from a fire truck, police vehicle or an ambulance. Also be aware of the vehicle from the funeral home.
Keep your distance
A priest giving his blessings using a water pistol while social distancing. We assume he is using holy water.
Thought for today
To be happy, you must let go of what’s gone, be grateful for what remains, and look forward to what is coming next.
