Didn't realise Lee and Margot were ill. Hope they both come good. Hearing you on the social media thing - this site is still a mite unstable for my MacBook. FB is okay, I've been using it for years now. Hope all's well in the 'Nam.

Dunno about everyone else, Ken, but Pam and I worry about Lee and Margot's health situation - he's been off the air for a long time now. One option for resurrecting the MB activity is to acknowledge technological progress and use something that's very, very simple for everyone to access like a facebook group or page. But let's see if Lee can return and continue to rebuild the GB before we start talking about changing the MB.
I'm no expert, but seems to me that life has moved on for most people and many of the former MB users (including myself) are now either on facebook or away from social media altogether. I used to despise facebook until I started using it during the Covid lockdowns and realised it's all about the admins and moderators keeping a close eye on things to prevent the nutters out there from taking over our minds (a bit like left and right-wing politics!).  :o

It seems to be very, very, quiet out there in message board land. I thought the Queen's passing, her magnificent funeral and associated changes to the monarchy would have generated a myriad of discussion... Here's my 20 cents worth: I believe Australia will be a Republic by 2030...
General Discussion / Kylie and Jason - the truth at last!

Dunno how many Neighbours fans are on this MB (apart from Pam!), but this link answers the question about Kylie and Jason having such small speaking parts in the recently screened final episode: - I'm not sure, but the link didn't turn blue with underline, so you might have to copy and paste it into your browser...

Thanks Ken - nothing in my mailbox yet, but will open carefully if something arrives...

Good to hear, Ken. All good here - but reading so many negative things about new Covid strains, flu and flooding downunder that we've decided to postpone the holiday we planned for Sunny; don't want her to get stuck down there unable to board a plane and go back to school after the holidays because one or more of us have been struck down with a virus! Things will hopefully look better next year - but our mindless bureaucrats might start getting suspicious if we don't travel soon, because this is two 12-month visas they've given us for Sunny and we haven't used either of them!  :o

G'Day MR, I'm doing okay. Hope all's well in 'Nam. Covid seems to have stayed away from me - fingers crossed! Winter cases are on the rise here in Victoria. Hospitals are beginning to postpone elective surgery to free-up beds for possible covid influx. Also talk of a fourth covid booster to combat possible new strain. Meanwhile a Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak in Indonesia has folks very worried here.

G'day Ken - good to hear from you and hope you're well (I ask everyone that nowadays, since I went back downunder 2 months ago and caught a dose of Covid within days of landing - no thanks to those westerners who feel too important to wear facemasks and keep their distance from others). All good here (all VNs wear facemasks, not least because few if any can afford to take a day off work!), and it's about to get even better with a visit by a former mate who I haven't seen since we both served in the regimental band in Boys Service, 1960: 'Bad lads' had a choice when being sentenced - serve time in nick or join the band (the provost sergeant was also bandmaster!). Paddy and his brother live in the Philippines these days and are planning to holiday in SVN shortly - should be lotsa fun!
