It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Due to running all over looking at tow vehicles, dinner tonight will be rather ordinary. The Australian Lamb Burger with Havarti Cheese, a side salad of Butter Lettuce topped with cheese shreds & hard boiled egg slices, and some pan fried potatoes.
At Smart & Final they had a Yellowtail Merlot. It is smooth, very drinkable, and reasonably priced. Not a spectacular wine, but a very good table wine well suited to a lamb-burger.
It looks like there is some interesting news today:
Grocery Shelves Bare In Australia As Trucker Strike, COVID Isolation For Workers Reels Country
Comes as Australian government threatens to shut off unvaccinated individuals from society and introduces Orwellian COVID tracking app.
Alarming videos out of Australia reveal numerous empty supermarket shelves as thousands of distribution workers are forced to isolate in their homes and a trucker strike is underway.
Major shortages are taking hold down under, with grocery workers forced to isolate in their homes due to the country’s draconian COVID measures.
Has a lot of embedded Tweets and video and photos. This next bit is from one of them showing a Google Traffic Map with lots of red spots:
The truckers have reportedly blockaded every entrance into Sydney despite reports that their radios have been jammed.

But the grocery chains insist the shortages are due to the stores “doing their part” to keep employees from working to reduce COVID spread.
Radios jammed? Do the Stazi Police know folks use cell phones now?
So I guess it’s time to start monitoring the situation in Australia a bit more closely.
