Just before Seth gets snowed under as our only American Cousin.
I'm hoping Seth everything is good with you.
If I remember your confined to home and work didn't want you for awhile and your wife is working from home.. Hope all is good for you and your family... :purple


I've gone into self-isolation. Just me, some Irish whiskey, and a limited supply of toilet paper.

Too many idiots out there not doing the right thing, so I'm not going into work for a few weeks.

My guitars and Netflix will be getting a hammering.

Scotty from Marketing will probably put us all in shutdown tonight, or on the weekend, anyway.


If you don't mind my asking, what do you do for a living Greg?

Is there any way the rest of us here can hear your hammering on the guitar? Have you ever put anything on YouTube?


I'm in Industrial Relations.

I'm on YouTube, somewhere, but I'm not saying where :bgrin

I went and bought 10 packs of guitar strings last weekend, so a few of my guitars will be getting restrung over the next few days.


What is Industrial Relations?

What kind of music do you like to play?


Industrial Relations deals with workplace matters.

Negotiating with employers and and acting on behalf of employees.

Helping people who have been unfairly dismissed from their job.

Making sure they receive the right pay, and all their entitlements - leave, rest breaks, etc.

Basically, making sure that companies do the right thing by their employees.

Music I like to play?

Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Joe Satriani, Led Zeppelin, Clapton, Jeff Beck.

Guitar instrumentals, and classic rock from the 60s and 70s.

I'm a Fender man - I collect Stratocasters and Telecasters.

don't push him.

Beautiful machines that make music.., by the way.

There is a big difference between collectors and players. No doubt they crossover at times.

I hope you aren't offended by my naming them as machines, GP. That is what they are aren't they..? Beautiful machines that enable us to reach and express .

Doesn't matter if you can't play them very well, as long as they are taken out now and then and used. They are made to be played.

I am going to be surrounded by school holidays, for an unknown length of time. EEeekk!!

Children to the left of me, children to the right....

stuck in the middle just me,...………... and my dog. :stop

Lordy lordy.. one of the neighbours up the road has obviously taken the term ' work from home' with a broad interpretation.

He seems to have moved his workshop ( elsewhere) to his home. There were at least 6 extra vehicles there this arvo, more than normal, when I walked the dog, …..with sounds of work going on most of the day.

UMMM this appears to be wrong. It is acreage, but what about the workers in the shed.?

I'll be going out for the first time in days, tomorrow (other than dog walks) , to get some necessaries. I'll let you know how I go.

So I went to the grocery store this morning. They have a “seniors only” time from 7-8 am. I scored a package of toilet paper and a package of paper towels (one per customer allowed), and I bought 3 boxes of assorted Deschutes beers (12 each) and 3 six packs of cans because Deschutes has closed their brewery due to the virus.

Now I’ve got to make it last .... :OMG

I don't know..I have lived like this for years, but now my peace will be daily disturbed by neighbours' noises. SIGH.

I've been having breathing problems and a bit of coughing. I'm on Antibodies At the moment and yesterday I felt like shit.. Took the week off and hopefully be right on Monday. If not I've always been a mild asthmatic and might have to get some preventative or something. Terrible time to be sick, I actually book the doctor to ring me then he leaves the scripts at the chemist, very frustrating...
When I get my breath back and can sing I'll do the Covid-19 song I've been playing a bit and lots of fun, but sound even worse than I usually do . :purple

Thought about asking to be tested for Covid-19.?

If I had those symptoms I'd try, 'cos it can really fuck your lungs, even if your symptoms are mild.
