    Reno, the different brand of flu vaccine have never been a contention because they are all the same. a quadrivalent vaccine with 4 different strains that change every year according to more or less accurate predictions. Then you have the enhanced one for 65 plus, and the shingles to stop the reactivation of that virus in over 70 I believe. All of this is old school decades old research. The new vaccines are not proven for obvious reasons and are doing the research (read experimentation)...

    https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/factsheets/Pages/advice-for-confirmed.aspx Lovely, so the current test the government relies on to scaremonger the population into submission, can not distinguish between live or dead virus. The very nice person that called me once only this week, told me that by day 12 I should get a test. Their website states the above. Don't get tested or you get a false positive.

    Ask the concreter to finish with a helicopter. Some call this "factory floor" finish, others "warehouse finish". It is better than the hand trowel and shouldn't cost much more. But you need to ask for them to bring the machine along. They may use PVC sealant in the process or not. You can add this later to avoid dust.

    Who knows! However, the profit from pharmaceuticals has little to do with the material cost of production. Is not like selling sugar by the kilo or half kilo.

Will we need one, come next year? Absolutely. Who will pay for it? Good question. Eventually all the little stalin, mao and mengele apprentices will find other ways to entertain themselves, and medicine might go back to those pesky ignorant doctors... and patients will be again treated as...

    The riskier period is behind you. You now have some immunity. How much can be only determined with an antigen blood test, and it is a purely individual response that can not be guessed. You could do a serology test if your doctor is willing to prescribe one. If you are both otherwise healthy, have the usual precautions and get on with your life. Anxiety or fear does not help. Get a new project going! So far, my jail term projects where, rainwater tank, pressure pump and retaining wall...

    You are doing the right thing in my opinion. Wait it out, meantime you are protected anyway. The fact that you will not push up the stats for the galah of this state to screech ... too bad, The vaccine is for you no one else. Most people who end up in hospital seriously ill with one dose, have not only had the jab recently, less than the 6 weeks it takes to do anything at all, but serious underlying conditions. No one can predict the individual future when it comes to circumstances of...

    1. Art Deco Switches and Power Points are made with American fittings and will not fit standard Australian Mounting Boxes. Either a Wall Box or Mounting Bracket will be needed for installation, these are available to add to your order above. Garbage regardless.

    That is an interesting contraption. The individual powerpoint and switches seem to have separate mounting brackets that would fit metal boxes used in full brick installations. They must be left over from obsolete models. So they cobbled them together and smacked them on an oversized plastic plate without any bridges. How did they pass certification? They are so crude, almost homemade. Return them and by Clipsal. They have some fancy models different from the standard one if you are after...

    It's the same vaccine and the same dose. Individual circumstances will dictate the need for a third dose. Also remember that the vaccine is likely to change over and over as the virus changes, not different from the flu vaccine. The conjectures and speculations, semantics and definition massages in that ABC article, makes you wonder how some of this writers are able to make the decision to get out of bed in the morning.

    Wouldn't dig under a slab not designed to be hanging. Let alone a thin and cracked shed floor that will not support itself, let alone a dog walking on it. I remember a concreter who learned his art in Uruguay. He poured concrete for a cellar in formwork held together with spit and wire, and was entombed under it when he decided to inspect a leak. Concrete has a cunning quality of being heavy. :)

    Make a wooden frame to sit on top of the container. You can use recycled framing timber for that, and screw second hand roofing or colorbond fence sheets on the frame.

    Faced with this super flu, and being 72, when I am confident in my ability to overcome challenges, I found having an easy way to check oxygen levels and heart frequency is very valuable. If O2 is above 95% and rate under 100 all is good. Otherwise, you may need to call the ambulance. Only once in the first days O2 was 94 and frequency 110, but it soon subsided. Now I am steady 60 to 70 frequency and 96-98 O2 The gadget is relatively cheap and super easy to use. ...

    Sorry, didn't see your reply. My brain is still foggy ... I am afraid I also have doubts about the glue capacity to keep it together in high UV and moisture environment. If you were to paint the railings, may be OK. Fully exposed ... I don't think so. Try to find nice straight length, and stay away from Bunnings for that. Try Barrenjoey timber or Canterbury timber and tell the guys you need a few special pieces for handrail.
