    Remember Stephen Stills used to say, “Keep on Keeping on!” Stay safe!

    As of midnight tonight people living in rural Victoria such as us have a greatly relaxed version of the Stage 3 restriction we have been under for months. Melbourne and surrounds remain on lockdown on Stage 4 inc. curfews.

    I couldn’t be bothered explaining as there’s too much, so here’s a link if anyone is interested enough in whats happening here. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-09...egional-victoria-moves-to-step-three/12664458

    However it appears we can head down to Mallacoota our holiday spot and socialise with our friends there at last. Working on the details today and seeing what contractors here are intending over the next few days and of course my shed construction. Thats probably the only thing that would keep me home at the moment!

    Most current count is a shade under 196,000, so probably more like tomorrow afternoon, but yay, we’re #1!

    Your numbers seem to be ahead of the source I routinely check. That just may mean a delay in updating on my end, but either way, we’re at 200,000 soon. So, still, yay!

    LOL I hope the band of Merry men will chip in a few quid to help pay the fine.

    Figures here in Victoria are still steadily dropping and I think yesterday saw only 35 new infections and none here in the bush for a few days now.

    People in rural areas like us are off the lockdown leash though with common sense restrictions and it’s a huge relief! We can travel anywhere in the state and stay now. After months we are off to our holiday spot this morning for almost a week. There will be a few of our mates there, about 8 all told and we are looking forward to some fun times.
