    My personal view, it would be highly irresponsible to bring together 10s of thousands of people from all over the world, into a confined environment (the Olympic village) for an extended period of two weeks. Given that fit young people are likely to be asymptotic, when infected, that would be a recipe for disaster.

    I would prefer a refund as it is unlikely we will be flying anywhere for the foreseeable future. We aren’t frequent travellers anymore. But thanks everyone for your responses.

    I am happy to wait.

    We were invited to a wedding in Bali in May, now Jetstar have cancelled all international flights, I have applied for a refund via online. Anyone have any experience on how successful getting a refund out of Jetstar might be?

    All things NFL

    Is Brady to Tampa Bay the biggest shock in the NFL, since I don’t know when? I never thought he would leave the Pats. Will the Pats rue trading Garroppolo to the 49ers? Is this the end of the Belichick dynasty?

    RWC I'm ready

    It would appear few are going to miss Chieka. I am still not sure if it was the coach or the cattle, most likely a combination of both. The only real world class player we seem to have is Pocock, and even he threw a crucial intercept pass. My biggest bug bear was the consistent handling errors and dumb decision making when we got close to the try line. Example we got within 1-2 metres of England’s and just continued to bash against their defence until we inevitably turned it over. When we finally went wide to Kafusi, the pass was appalling, he has to wait flat footed and never got going. Are poor skills, bad decision making on field and consistent handling errors down to the coach or the players? It is difficult when our yard stick isn’t just the best rugby team on the planet, but one of the best sporting teams in the world.

    Generally at least 3 sides to every story, your version, my version and what really happened. 😉
  8. Everyone is different, but I am firmly in the 2 battery camp. My daughter’s year 10 formal and I didn’t check/charge the battery beforehand. The battery went flat just as I was organising the group shot. I have shot some events where you didn’t want that to happen, so having the spare battery is peace of mind.
  9. I have a Nikon D5600 which I have been using for about 18 months. I like the fact it is relatively light weight and easy to cart around. I shoot a lot of my kid’s sport, so the DSLR is clearly superior. I don’t disagree with with the phone v DSLR for “Happy snaps” but where the phones really fall away is zoom and action shots. Unless you can zoom with your feet, the DSLR again wins hands down. As an example, this is my son playing football. I would have been 50-60m away, shooting with a 200-500 zoom lens. You just can’t get this type of shot with a phone.

    Rocketman is different, not what I expected, but I am looking at his music in a different way. Wow, mum & dad copped it big time. I nearly want to go back and watch it again before I decide what I think of it.

    Port - Race Day

    The full saying is, although Grandpa’s axe has had the handle replaced 3 times, and the head twice, it’s still Grandpa’s axe. But is it really? Same thing with IMOZ, I am fairly sure the Forster course changed several times, then the race relocated to Port and the Port course has changed several times. So it’s still IMOZ in name, but is it in reality?

    Port - Race Day

    You should be right to get one.

    Liked it, I thought Josh Brolin as Thanos was excellent, but 8/10 for me. Didn’t see the end coming.

    Port - Race Day

    It was/is Ironman Australia, not IM Forster, or IM Port Mac, yes the location and course have changed many times, hence the Grand Pa’s axe analogy applies, but it is still IMOZ. If your line of thinking is applied, then Kona isn’t the Hawaiian IM.

    Port - Race Day

    Although it’s a bit like Grandpa’s axe, it’s still the oldest and original Ironman in Australia.
