Re: Aging population

Over here, quite a few medicines that once were prescription only (such as ventolin) are now over the counter. The only problem with that is they don't count any more towards the 'safety net' amount, where if you spend over a certain amount in a year, the rest are subsidised. What I did find chillin...

Re: A sniper can shoot someone at a great distance

I get the point very well & agree, there should be a media blackout on some things the military do. I'd put a media blackout on some of the terrorist publicity videos too, where we get some 17 year old ranting and raving about what they will do in the future to us. Why give them air space & oxygen? ...

population growth in Australia is a good thing
Not in Victoria it isn't.
Maybe there should be a clause in migrant intakes-preference given to those who sign a guarantee to live in any state except Vic or NSW for at least the first 5 years.

Re: Aging population

Our govt is the same, Ralph. They think more migrants equals a boost to the economy which will make them look good and equal votes. But then here in Victoria we are facing huge problems with traffic/commuting times/services/infrastructure, you name it. Problems with power, gas etc What the world nee...

Re: Good value holiday.

My daughter says the key is to have something to declare in dangerous goods as that row is always much shorter and gets you through customs twice as fast. She recommends a swiss army knife with a little two sided blade. If it gets through, just give it away as a present. I bought a little wooden thi...

Re: A sniper can shoot someone at a great distance

Where was it though? Not in mainland USA I bet.

They obviously need to get it down, maybe with something cheaper.

Re: Breaking news

The man was right and in that summary you can see the exact reasons for some of the problems in Britain and probably a big part of the reason Brexit up & won. Many ordinary citizens are feeling that their nationality is under threat, being submerged in a flood of migrants. And that their economic we...

Re: Aging population

I think a lot of the trouble stems from the fact that over the last 60 years, every govt has tried to buy votes. If Britain is anything like here, it is concessions for this, grants for that and so it goes. Instead of keeping things simple, welfare has blown out way past where politicians would ever...

You might have trouble bringing anything through customs if you bought one of the wood items from there.

Re: Places you have been that you won't go again

I was thinking for some reason the name revelstoke reminded me of vampires.
But that is just Bram Stoker, who wrote Dracula.

It's a vampirish name though!
