Well, in a few hours it will all be gone. Some people have started gathering to watch. My old man had a walk down earlier to take a look but not well enough to stay up to the small hours to see it come down. A few 11th hour attempts from local celebrities to save it, but the Tories are not budging.
Some of the art it has inspired over the years. I used to live near it and would see it every day. I also sketched it as a kid and could draw every detail now without needing a reference…
230 days in lock down. 7.6 months and counting. More than ‘a few months.’ Likely going to be 9-10 months by the end of it.
You would think Melbourne was the epicenter of the world for the virus, going by these figures.
Unemployment issues before the pandemic, come on man, if you wanted to get a job, you could find something, yes maybe some issues around under-employment but generally people made do. Now, the WFH peeps are probably thriving as they are saving, while the ones who can’t are losing their businesses.
So if mental health was already not in a good state, try adding a lockdown to it, with most people that want to speak to someone having to wait 6 months. It’s the draconian measures that is causing problems for a lot. It’s all or nothing, no in between. I had a helicopter over my house yesterday for a good 30 minutes and low. F that.
Took my 15 year old to Panthers for his 1st jab yesterday after the better half found an appointment on Friday for the Saturday
When we got there, we were asked what i thought to be an unusual question "Are you a walk-in or for an appointment?"
And there was some activity at the desk for walk-in.
Looks as though the Nepean hub has additional Pfizer doses to allow for walk-in
BTW in the waiting room, i thought i saw 3 other u15s (accompanied by a parent) in the short time we were there.
