They're up on The Gold Coast and current Covid rules are similar to us plus beaches are closed BUT they're allowed a visit from up to 2x close relo's* as long as all parties self deem themselves fit and healthy.
No, I don't get it either.

I'm just sat here moving my head over from my left shoulder to the right and then repeating.
Yes, I'm self oscillating.

Def worth a watch even for those who don't like cricket.
From a coaching perspective, I found it fascinating. Justin Langer's attention to detail pre, during & post match was spot on - I've come away with a couple of things for my youth footy coaching (whenever that will restart).
Not sure if it's because I spent some time down under recently but I certainly don't feel the hatred to the Aussie cricket team that I used to. The arrogance doesn't appear to be there currently.
I was quite amazed though that JL thought that the English crowds were over the top in their condemnation of both Smith & Warner on their return from bans. The video of him holding himself back when someone calls Smith a cheating bar steward had me giggling. He'd certainly struggle at a footy match.

Decent outcome for me personally - I know that there's loads out there who are effected a lot worse than I.
The good news for TWTD'ers is that I'm going to be around here a lot more to brighten your day.

Plenty of traffic on the roads but not many people about BUT (and in keeping with current 2mtr rulings) my fellow out & about-ers were all very cordial.
Plenty of "good mornings" offered by dog walkers, joggers & walkers. Nice.
Even, for some strange reason which I really don't mind at all, got a beep and a wave from a lorry driver.
Could we turn into more tolerant beings once this is all over??
|Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue - callout report from yesterday|
at 08:59 24 Mar 2020
Callout 28: 23 Mar - Tryfan.
Just after 0830 this morning a male rang to say he was stuck on the west face of Tryfan. Dressed in jeans and trainers he had travelled up earlier this morning from Birmingham and had climbed Tryfan to take photographs of Llyn Bochlwyd or Idwal (It's hard to say as he had no map to relate to). He attempted to descend the west face but became stuck, wet and cold, in one of the gullies and called for help. Once the by now familiar Covid 19 checks had been established a team lead climbed up to him and made him safe. They conducted a multi pitch lower to safe ground and he was confidence roped back down to the roadside and spoken to. Unbelievably, he asked where he should go tomorrow to get some good photos but was advised he should maybe go home instead.
