Bex, THANK YOU THANK YOU.

that link is sooo helpful.

Luckily I still have an old bottle of vitamin C at the back of the condiments cupboard.

 

However, it was a bit of a struggle getting all six 1000mg tablets into my vein.

 

 

(Disclaimer - I'm taking the P!ss. I am not suggesting anybody try to self medicate. EVER.)

There's what, 4 posts asking after me in a year? I seem to be as popular as a man at a Feminist Convention wearing a strap on dildo.   But I am highly unimpressed with mostly Murdoch's lies

Ah, there is the problem. Pushups. I never do them. Better to stress your heart with a good Cabernet Sauvignon.   Good to hear from you Bex.

The term Authoritarian is defined by the Economic Intelligence unit a division of the Economist Group based in the UK and is when political pluralism is non existent and includes monarchys and dictato

Okay, so dosing up on vitamin C is one of those things with a long history. The last folk I came across doing this were um 30years ago, give or take. (They were also having the amalgam fillings in their teeth replaced, on the basis that the mercury was leaching out and poisoning them but that's another story, also with a longish history).

 

As I recall, their system was that they dosed with Vitamin C while healthy until the body started to pass the surplus. I don't know how they established that, whether it was just by observing their pee. They then reduced the dose a bit, and this was taken as the individual's optimum healthy dose. And they raised the dosage from there when sick, which they said they were able to do without passing a surplus, from which they concluded that when the body was sick it needed more vitamin C.

I have no idea how much if any of this may be supported by studies.

But it seemed to me that folk who don't do this (my family included) were every bit as healthy as those who did.

 

So I doubt there is any harm in this (or in having your fillings replaced) provided the dosage is kept within reasonable bounds, and the diet is otherwise adequate.

I just don't know if there is any particular benefit.

My mistake...meant Brendan Murphy.

So...on another, very important front I ask when does this 'do nothing' govt act on evictions? Maslow's hierarchy of essential needs lists shelter next to food as MOST important. Landlords have been well looked after by govt on taxation and legislative protections. They must understand and authorities have a serious responsibility to make sure they do, that with the rights and benefits conferred upon them, they have the duty to protect their tenants. If an otherwise excellent tenant is unable to pay rent, for no direct reason that they can control, the landlord must continue to provide the basic need of a safe place to live. Families are vulnerable and deserve our best efforts to look after them.

BTW Brendan Murphy is the Chief Medical Officer, but he is getting consensus information from some brilliant minds on AHPPC, and in turn from the State and Territory Panels, so he wouldn't be getting away with much.

 

The National Cabinet has announced two financial relief packages to date and Treasury has been meeting for three days delivering a third. There is incredible complexity in coming up with something that's legal in 8 jurisdictions which all have their own Acts which must be complied with, and in some cases State or Territory legislation has to be changed, and then at the back end the package has to be seamlessly delivered to every Australian in every area. You must have missed the PM's announcement that the concept is to keep all Companies afloat, and address Landlord rents hibernating everything so it can get going at the end of the pandemic. These comments about postage stamp size industry segments are pointless when the big picture is being worked on to see no one is left out.

Thanks Methusula

Interesting to see over next week's where Sweden and Switzerland approach with no lock down policies will lead

 

Freezing bitterly cold countries don't exactly have to enforce lockdowns really do they, sunny Australia with luring beaches and parks is another story altogether....

ScoMo said in his press conference tonight that there was a moratorium on evictions.

Funny how Japan's count suddenly double after the Olympics were cancelled.

 

Their count is very low though, but their population already has a very high percentage of daily mask wearers. They also don't shake hands ect.

 

I just watched on the news Australian Police going around to check ordered home isolation people are actually at home ..... yup, you guessed it, with no masks on.

Took 1 week longer for people and families to have their fears allayed than for businesses. Good work Scott from marketing.

This is getting boring ......another left wing socialist remark!

There is now no need to go to the State/Territory Health sites to find out that private/recreational flying is closed.

 

We have moved to Stage 3, and only these four activities are permitted from 11:59 tonight.

 

1. Essential shopping

2. Exercise ( with limitations)

3. Essential Medical visits (Doctor/Chemist)

4. Work or Education if that is deemed necessary.

 

So Zero flying.

YAY! My router arrived.

 

Busy today making a little house for him and having a play with it.

 

I would have thought the idiots would have done the calibration in the software supplied for and came with the actual machine, sigh ....

 

By the end of the day I even got it to run a small 2D file, no tool of course, long way to go yet ...

Still sorting through the various software out there too. until I find one I am comfortable with.

Well after spending most of the week sorting out and learning software and choosing between all the choices out there, yup, I'm using Sketchup. Just like the CAD program, the CAM plugin is just absolutely brilliantly simple.

 

After I downloaded the plugin, I had a test file running in Camotics toolpath simulator in an hour, and up and running the machine within the next hour, and can now make basic files in mere minutes

 

This was my first real test file ...

And now back to making aircraft parts, this was a 'first run for real' tentative drilling operation today, worked out superb, 166 holes along each of 3 sides (500 holes) of a 6 meter square tube .

 

What's critically important is the accuracy for matched hole building.

 

 

 

And here's the free program that made it so stupendously easy (2D milling that is)

When the CAM systems had been set up for the VN Commodore, which from memory was the Opel Kapitan on steroids the story circulated that panels were hard to fit, and it was found that one side was being set up x mm (I think about 6) ahead of the other.

As a breaker of 4 tools over the last 2 days, and one serious crash when over running the Y axis (even bent the front facia plate), I can understand that.

 

Mind you I was a bit pizzed that the machine didn't arrive calibrated, I sent it 1000mm up the Y axis but it only traveled 520mm, where I left it for a moment while I rang the company, they explained to me where to change the software calibration, traveled and measured the X axis which was now fine, then brain-dead me sent the Y back to zero by telling it to travel a -1000mm back to home .......

 

..... but it was only 520mm from home ....

How about "a statue of Bex mounting a horse"?

 

(Probably using a step ladder).

Or standing on a box............
