    Finland has compulsory military service? Wow...guess it makes sense though with your huge neighbour. Australia had national service but that ceased just after the Korean War. My family though has a tradition of service, my Dad was an army captain and did 2 tours of Vietnam, my eldest nephew is a Major in the army engineers, my middle nephew is a commander in the RAN, my youngest nephew is a Lt in the Army infantry and of course my wife is a pilot in the RAAF. Me...I'd be totally unsuitable for any service, I'm barely 5ft, totally autistic (mental) and squeamish as hell. +1 on not having to do your service during the Finnish winter...ouch. My wife is doing her survival behind enemy lines refresher course this summer in tropical New Guinea...35 degrees and constant rain and mud... fun times lol. She loves that sort of stuff though She's home now btw, been to Japan again...I really want to know what shes up to there but I know not to ask because she can't/won't tell me... I can't get a security clearance, I tried when my wife first signed up but I was classified 'unstable' and a risk by the defense department...which is totally fair enough lol. It does get frustrating at times but I'm used to it now.

    Some great news, I'm back to work on Wednesday, some staff are already back but as I'm part time my boss is having me wait a little longer. Also my wifey will be able to come home when she gets back from overseas, there are now no community transmitted cases, all Covid activity in Adelaide is among people already placed into quarantine. And fingers crossed nobody looks to be all that sick this time around, nobody has been sent to Intensive Care and all appear to be recovering quicker then back in March/April. Looks like I will get to see family for Christmas! Oh and I reached my target weight this morning 50kg on the nose 🙂 So happy...going to push a bit more and get down to my weight from my late teens somewhere between 48-49kg.....haha I might be able to fit into my school uniform again...last wore that when I was 15 (I graduated high school 2 years early). If I get to 48 then I will be half the size of my wife, shes 6"5 and weights around 95kgs (mostly muscles)...that will be hilarious...though she'll probs start calling me 'mini me' again like she used to way back.
  4. I really want to start a new My Team with Tsunoda as a teammate, can we get some word on this please @BarryBL

    Yay!!! Our hard lockdown is ending 3 days early, SA health have managed to track nearly everyone who was in contact with this idiot and they have all been quarantined. 23 people have gotten Covid from this dropkick but no more....0 cases in the last 48 hours. This person lied to the SA Police and will be facing prosecution for knowingly misleading government authorities. I'm so relieved

    Day 1 of total lockdown...up early and doing my marking. I'm depressed and anxious and very glad I went to my parents as my wife is still overseas and I can't even ring her, she is back in Adelaide mid next week but has to stay on base until our Covid is down to 0 again. My parents were amazed to learn last night that there is a thing called online grocery shopping lol I ordered our food for the week last night for delivery on Friday haha...they are old and a bit behind the times. I give each essay a quick glance and sort them into rough categories ie Pass, Credit, Distinction and High Distinction and then I will read all of them in depth and give a rough grade, something like 80-90 then once thats done I will choose the best 3 and the worst 3 and work out a final grade for those, then I will grade the rest compared to those 6. So far I have read around half of the 82 I have. The exam is tomorrow but its online and not that long (it doesn't have an essay question) and will be easy to grade. Oh and I won an award at work, the student association for paleontology voted me their favourite lecturer , I will get a box of chocolates when lockdown finishes. They especially liked my lockdown lectures from the beach (that was back in march-april) and my infectious enthusiasm for all things paleontology. That did cheer me up a tad. 🙂

    My state is going into total lockdown tonight, nobody in Adelaide is going to be allowed to leave their house for 6 days except for essential business. I'm going to pack a bag and go and stay with my parents, as I can already feel my anxiety levels building and I don't want to have a massive panic attack and end up in hospital at a time when nobody will be able to visit me. 😥

    Well my university is closed as of today. A repatriated person has broken their quarantine and infected some people and there's a mini outbreak (17 people) in progress. Our state government has gone into lockdown effective immediately to stop it cold. All this anguish for a state of 1.4million people that had not even seen Covid19 this whole time, because of some s***head who could not stay confined. We had 0 Covid cases (baring repatriation) thats 0...and now 17 people, however many more will pay because of one ******. Will I get to see my family at christmas now? Probably not, all the other states have closed off to SA today...d**khead...0 cases...for shame...this guy needs criminal charges against him...****wit. Anyone dies this guy has to go to jail. Omfg my wife's squadron commander phoned while I was typing, my wife will have to remain within the RAAF base now until further notice...she is active personnel and has to go overseas regularly and military bases have to be 100% Covid secure so she cannot enter the civilian environment until there are no active community cases. ******* hell😥

    End of semester = marking time!....I hate marking, I have 82 major essays to mark and in a weeks time I'll have 82 exams to mark. I really hope there are no fails, because I don't like failing students as it seems too brutal and the paperwork I have to do to fail someone is so much hassle.

    Went flying again today, went down the coast to the south for an hour and then back to the city. Was great to see all the beaches and yachts, even flew over kangaroo island for a bit. Really nice 🙂 I still have no idea how planes work lol, but Meg has it under control!

    Put a deposit down on my wifes 35th Bday gift...I'm sick and tired of her awful pickup truck sitting in my carport, so I'm buying her some new wheels. A Mach 1 Mustang in black, pretty sweet American muscle car that even looks decent, she'll love it 🙂 Imo its a bit vulgar but I like Alfas so haha May not get delivery for her birthday (Jan17) but it shouldn't be too much longer after that. In other news, with Covid being eliminated in Australia (yay!) our state borders are opening and my whole family is going to my eldest sisters place in Cairns for christmas! I haven't seen my middle sisters third of the family for 8 months, so this is gonna be sweet. Only 6 weeks left of work then I'm off till Feb.

    Uff I'm so tired right now! Big day surveying a very small fossil area. Identified 2 definite Ediacaran fossils and another 7 possibles. The consultant paleontologist is happy and will recommend that the mining company put a cross through the area and move on. My colleague and I are considering coming back in the new year and excavating the small area. Its geologically interesting as the this layer has been forced to the surface by a meteorite impact some 200 mya (we know this because of the presence of Iridium isotopes in the rock strata, something which does not occur on Earth except in impact structures) and has just recently become exposed due to sand erosion of the soft sandstone on top of the fossils...unfortunately in the nearby area that impact had thrown this layer further up and it got eroded away millions of years ago. This site makes 3 areas in this state where Ediacaran fossils have survived the last 650 million years!
