I haven't heard that in probably 45-50 years. I had Pictures at an Exhibition when it was released and liked it, although I never had much time for any of their other albums. Too much technique and not enough music.

Picko, who I started out DJ ing with at the 360 etc..was later involved with Pulse Disco, which I believe was at Bestwood Welfare..though not sure of the dates as I wasn't in Nottm at the time.  I think 'Pulse' was to do with somebody called Steve Austin?

Hoping to have a holiday soon. 

To one of our favourite resorts. 

A summery song.

There'll be a chip shop, a posh-ish restaurant and an ice cream kiosk and some boats coming and going, plus a promenade for daily excercise. And of course sunshine.

Your lot wouldn't let us in. We'd have to quarantine on Tasmania for about 3 months, then they could say no. Especially after We'd made an illegal voyage on an inflatable.

Beekay, at the moment we are even restricting entry to our own citizens and as of 14th July the cap on numbers returning will be further reduced. All cases of covid in Australia have their origin in returned overseas travelers 

Our government's implementation of the vaccination roll out has been an omni-shambles and they are still following an eradication strategy. If they want to achieve this then they need to fully close the borders. They would be far better getting on with vaccinating us all as quick as they can.

But if Australians aren't allowed in to their own country after visiting abroad, where are they supposed to go and what do they do??

I guess stay with family, friends or run up mega hotel bills, I don't know but what is more important our federal government does not seem to care.

The latest data indicates that there are some 34-36,000 Australian citizens and permanent residents who want to come home and the list is growing. We are only going to allow 3,035 people to return to Australia a week from July 14th.

From the start of the pandemic having closed the borders the federal government has stubbornly refused to recognise that hotel quarantine is not ideal, in containing covid and that it needs to purpose build quarantine accommodation if it wants to continue with the eradication strategy.

It's a bugger when your own country won't let you come home.

Do they become displaced persons? A bit like that lot in the channel.

Now the cave is used for parties, weddings, shows, and more. Each year in Auguest they have a "Irish Folk Festival" and seeing as my bother lives in Belva we normaly go.

He still drops in now and again, Ben.  Last time I communicated with him, he was busier than a 3 legged sheepdog! Tatties and so forth to nurture, not to mention all the Georgia pesticles to deal with.

Eyeup Ben.  Thanks for thinking of me. Still scrattin arahnd as Jill said.   Right side still weak everything takes longer, even cocking me leg on a post.  Lol.  Keep doing though, I`d rather die on me paws than cringing in me recliner.  I think this last couple of years has taken a toll on all of us.

Dave.
