    Keep warm. Gas is great it's cheaper than electric.

    its freezing here but... water freezes at zero celsius the eight freezes at ten degrees. some teachers have been returning to school and all i can hear is its so cold its freezing. i've been in a zoom where the teacher told us sit tight for a second, im off to grab a blazer because its awful. i had to get checked out for some contact dermatitis thats been going on for the past two weeks and doctor's orders were i need to stop having overly hot showers or ill aggravate it more. i am oppressed due to not being able to boil myself like a lobster if i so choose anymore

    hi Mark that sounds great. It's great to be out and about and outdoors, always true but so much more so now.
    I've only been on a motorcycle once but it was great.
    Jealous that you've not had to use your heater, I've been glued to mine and looking up what warm clothes to buy to keep cosy. Victoria gets icy

    Hi, Matchy, sounds great, as I've not had a drink for close to close 6 months.

    Hi Matchy, any problems or queries about the footings and brick wall please post on 'The Home Improvement Thread'.

    Hi RX, hope you have got used to that strange noise.

    I remember filling my van up on LPG when the price was only 7c a litre, and if by chance I filled up at 9 c a litre, I'd be cross because I could have purchased it cheaper, but to fill it up it would only cost $5.

    Now, look at the price it is today.

    Geoff.

    Matchy69 by your weather report you must be in Vic like myself. I'm in front of my wonderful old gas heater waiting for my numb mouth to wear off after the dentist so I can eat. And have my next salted caramel latte. Yum!!

    That's unusual for Qld. My daughter is up there too. She said it's very wet. Enjoy your show. I've been watching a lot of tv lately. Watching Midsomer Murders now with my cat on my lap in front of the heater.

    It sounds like it can get cold in qld Mark, is that true?
    I remember being really freezing at nights in Byron bay when I visited in July a few years ago....

    Here in Victoria it's been raining all day, think it's been a hard day for some with the weather and this odd stage of restrictions. I didn't do much at all today, but had a really nice soothing walk
