As I walked past my car on the way across to the village's supermarket to get the supplies for that brew, plus 3L of milk (it seems that my shed is becoming a morning "coffee house" as well these days), I was wondering when I started it last (with a chemist shop in the village now I don't have to go those 80km monthly trips into town anymore) so I thought that I better roll up the roller door and let the old girl run for 30mins.

Anyhow I'm ready for tomorrow morning now as it's expected to be even more miserable than today so the heat produced by doing that brew will be appreciated. ;-)

Cheers.

It looks like it's going to be another lackluster day here as the odd raindrop falls from the sky now and again and the shed's solar heating is offline due to the lack of any sunshine (and I really have nothing to do downstairs to warrant lighting the fire).

About the only thing that I'll do today is to cross the road and get 1 more beer brew to do tomorrow morning as I should have the required number of empty bottles by the time it's ready to bottle (that'll complete the catch up on stock after last summer).

Cheers.

It's all back to normal again in the shed with no evidence left of what happened here over the weekend left to find, but I must mop the floors again soon though the weather forecast tells me to wait until Friday or Saturday so that I can go to the pub while they dry (showers and storms are expected up until then).

Anyhow it's now time for a LLB for me and I've earned it. :-D

Cheers.

Thankfully the coal industry here is now on a downward spiral because as old mines play out new 1's arn't popping up and even if the approval was given for them to open nobody now is willing to lend the $'s for them to even be able to turn the sod, much to the annoyance of our current bumbling right wing federal government, and it's much the same with those same fed's with their coal seam gas plans as no 1 wants them either after a few incidents as some state governments are now refusing any further approval of them.

I just seen your edit, but what can 1 say to defend right wing politics anywhere in this world?

Nothing at all can defend their self centered greediness and sense of superiority, they only live for the moment not what can/will happen so long as the books look good. ;-)

Cheers.

Well I'm glad that we did our part here over the last 5 months putting up with all that rain as the Darling River is fully flowing again from end to end after many years of not doing so.

Cheers.

Well my usual Monday morning chores have been done so I'm going to make my 2nd coffee for the morning before returning my brewroom to how it should be which firstly involves reordering all 9 of my crate stacks (6 crates per stack) so that all the older brews are in the front line again and after yesterday afternoon's beer o'clock session I only require another 11 empty bottles to do another brew, then it'll be time to do another ginger beer brew followed by another spirit wash.

Cheers.

It maybe that India now has an even bigger problem on their hands.

Worrying rise in mucormycosis fungal infection in recovered COVID patients in India.

A deadly fungal infection is affecting a rising number of recovered COVID patients in India, as doctors battle to treat patients in a health system already under severe pressure.

Mucormycosis is normally incredibly rare, but doctors in the virus-ravaged Asian country are coming across cases of the life-threatening infection more and more among people who have had coronavirus......

....Mucormycosis is caused by exposure to mucor mould, commonly found in soil, plants, manure and decaying fruit and vegetables.

It affects sinuses, brain and lungs and can be life-threatening for patients who are immunocompromised such as people with diabetes. Often patients must have their eyes removed in order to save their lives.

The infection has a mortality rate of 50 per cent.

Doctors believe the rise in infections may be caused by patients who have been treated with steroids, which is common for severely ill COVID patients.

Winning after finishing my beer bottling (with 1 more interruption) and now I'm trying to get a quiet beer in before that crew turn up.

The 1st drops of rain are now hitting my steel roof, but we should get about another 30mins in before that rain starts to get serious, and the temp here has reached 18C (feels like 17C).

Cheers.
