Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
Can you guess the tune?
The photo is of a soon-to-be new suburb on the outskirts of Canberra. Well, I don’t have a photo of the sprawling outskirts of Sydney (Australia’s largest capital city), and I won’t be going there for a while, if ever. Not my favourite place, ladies and gentlemen. It is a little too large for me. Lotta cars. Lotta cars. Lotta hard-working, hard-living people.
Sydney folk are struggling to get on top of the latest outbreak of coronavirus. It’s scary and scarring. Devastating for all concerned. The state Premier has extended the lockdown (I agree with the Premier that lockdown is a horrible word). She has also designated this August vaccination month. To date, only 14% of Aussies are fully vaccinated. Of course, I would like to know what the Premier is planning beyond August. Surely she would not ease all restrictions and allow the outbreak to seed into regions beyond Greater Sydney? I’m assuming that since the Premier has re-allocated some vaccine doses intended for rural communities to metro Sydney instead, that she will be mindful of the vulnerability of regional areas.
Show us how it’s done, Sydney. You can get it under control. Well, maybe not dick for brains who punched the police horse in the mouth during last weekend’s illegal lockdown protest. Sydneysiders, make sure you order that computer from JB because you’ll need a computer, and a good internet connection, to keep up with all the exposure sites. Anyway, it’s both a together thing and an individual thing being Covid-safe. But generally, it’s up to you. Bit like the Nutbush really.
International readers may not be aware that Aussies created a dance to Nutbush City Limits in the 1970s. I’ve heard it described as a line dance. What the *#^! I guarantee that no-one dancing the Nutbush in the discos and school halls across Australia during the 70s had ever heard of a line dance! You’ve got homework to do, ladies and gentlemen. Watch the dance vid below a couple of times, then grab your household contacts and dance your blues away. I would join you except I went for a longish walk today in hiking shoes that I hadn’t worn for a year. Let’s not go there.
Enjoy. It’s the 2016 Nutbush Party Fun at Ceroc.
Stay cool, everyone.
