Walked past the travel agent in the local mall today where eight bored consultants were seated at their desks without a single customer in sight ... reckon to wander inside would have risked being mobbed !

Baz I heard that these agents saw you approaching and were left a serve...

There was a sign up that said, CLEARANCE SALE, Baz sees the sale and stops in to enquire if anything is left...

The reply;

One of the fellows says, 'Well we're having a sale on arseholes!'

Bazza says, 'Well ya must be doing pretty good, ya only got two left!' LOLLOL

Plenty of offers for cheap cruises.

Her indoors did the supermarket shop today (Tuesday is 5% off for old farts like us).  Shelves very low in tinned food.  No toilet paper. Generally low stocks.  Noodles not on the list so don't know.  Plenty of red wine so I going to self isolate myslef as soon as I get any sort of sniffle!

A... a... ahhh....choo!  Next bottle please!

Should be some good deals on holidays at the moment. Wondering if its worth the risk to book an island trip for the winter?

There may seem more to that than seems being a good idea.
If you go to
http://www.swellmap.com/forecast-maps
 look at world temperatures
Japan, China, Korea, Iran, Italy, Washington USA.. all the places it is spreading (not just detected like NZ Aussie etc) are on the same latitude/ weather temp band..
 Bit of something to think about...an 'isolation' in the islands this winter..

Worth noting is that travel insurance companies are saying that they will not pay out on any corona virus related claim on new policies as it is not an unexpected event any more.

All the Aussies are ****ting themselves......All the toilet roll is sold out around the country LOL
Every unt in the s/h is going to be paranoid when they feel the first sign of a cold.....pretty horrible really.Ouch
I could isolate pretty easily.......every time i go out in Perth...I fear getting a speeding ticket for a brief indiscretion on a road where there are never any accidents anyway........Cops are terrible for revenue gathering to pay the Mp's wages over here....Does **** all to reduce the road toll.
Once the idiots turn up..Im outta here...No time for Drama Queens.

OK, tomorrow I panic buy on the assumption I will have to self-isolate fo 2-3 weeks or longer.  Shopping list:

1) SPs, jig heads, spare fluoro, a few microjigs.  Not sure this justifies a new rod... 
2) red wine (pref pinot noir)
3) beer (something a bit IPA/hoppy)
4)  see 2
5) see 3
errr...  that's it?


Oh, and some toilet paper and pot noodles if there are any left.  Hand wash = rinse in the sea

Sign on the door of a Sydney supermarket reads :-
 
"No money, drugs or toilet rolls held     overnight on the premises"
