    The news that we are getting and the way we respond to that nightly news is a bit difficult for me right now:(. How's it happening for the rest of you?
    Just trying to put some support into our lives.
    Maybe Cheers for the discussion;)?

    I see your point, but let’s not also overwhelm KC with separate threads on the same subject. o_O

    There’s already a couple of other started ones, to contribute comments too. :rolleyes:

    Do we really need yet another thread? o_O

    All got our way of viewing it I guess.
    Was trying to put a positive spin on this that we may be able to help each other understand & cope with what we as a community are experiencing. It's a bit huge what's happening!

    Thanks David, for me, I finally cleared a cupboard of goodies purchased over the last couple of years, I know there’s more I can’t find, once I’ve got them on I’ll post some pics.

    Take care all.

    The easiest way to cope is turn all sources of info on the subject off and chill with the free time available.

    Right on burt, i think most people no what sh...ts going on by now an just have to kerp a low profile at home an not watch too much tv news.
    On the positive side Im just finishing watching surf video number 35 since i just got back from a epic surf trip to a island off NiAS in Indonesia.
    Arrived home last sunday, so ive been quaritined at home since!! Day 10 so far !!
    You guyz have to watch a aussie movie called Drift.
    Classic aussie surf story with classic cars staring what looks like a 67 splitty.
    Keep an eye out on the beach party scene at night were theres a sneaky apperance by ross clarke jones.
    Hang in there everyone, if your feeling a bit down go for a drive in your kombi somewere an go for a bush walk.
    Always cheers me up☺

    Every other year ,we seem to get a type of flu where there is no vaccine available to control it ,and every year some people with pre existing problems who are most susceptible to these things get really sick and some unfortunatly pass away.
    If we all just follow the guidelines laid down by the medical fraternity we will get through this . Just have to keep thinking positive and don't let it get you down.
    The best medicine is to go sit in your kombi or fix something that you :(:(should have done some time ago ,you will feel better and your Kombi will be better for it .:D.
    Grab your self a few tinies and go sit out the back and watch nature go about its work .the birds will sing you a song if your lucky ;). What I'm trying to say say is don't make yourself sick over this . Life does go on after all stop listening to all the bull shit that the T V stations talk about .because they are still repeating the same story from 2 weeks ago ,nothing has changed has it? . Don't know how they can get away with it .
