One of the major tour operators FTI went bankrupt - meaning serious work ahead today. Had to call dozens of people to inform them their booking for tomorrow is cancelled.

Sadly it's the way of the world. We'll see how things will work out but for now, there's plenty of work to do for us.

The incessant rain is taxing the people in Germany, where already 5 people are kille due to high water.

It's been dry now for four days, and pleasant and sunny to boot. The rain has caused the first mosquito wave to break out a month before it usually comes. There are pools and ponds everywhere - consequently there are a lot of aquatic birds appearing in the city. I hear frogs in places that were previously just field.

And there's a snail infestation in my province.

Heading to Cohuna (Fucohuna) to pick up the VW New Beetle, tentents have moved into our house there last weekend- still listed for sale as investment property- the real estate market in Rural Oz has tanked- interest rates are to high forcing people into the rental market.

When you cycle for 30 minutes to a shop, want to buy something - and discover your wallet's still at home...

...you know you're a Ploeg.

Apparently bands in the UK only get paid £350 for a gig and even then only if they're doing covers.

It doesn't seem like a career for working class folk.
Luckily, our move to the UK is part of a retirement plan. I worked as a teacher of maths and physics because I knew there was never going to be any money in music.


It is a shame and probably accounts for the lack of innovation these days where the the talent pool is reduced to the children of millionaires. I'm currently returning from the Isle of Man TT and every night there was a different band in the campsite marquee massacring numerous ancient pop and rock songs. I'd much sooner hear some original music from a middle aged jazz / art rocker or anything else really. I took my evening beers by my tent at the other end of the field.

Sorry to hear that your Cohuna nightmare continues Eddie. At least you can get some money coming in for the time being.

Thanks- Is good to have it rented out. The property market is Rural & Regional Australia has collapsed, in Cohuna nothing has sold there this year- the sad state of the economy and too many interest rate rises have spooked the market. Houses are still selling in the captial cities for now but any more interest rate rise could caused a market collapse I believe with Australia being one of the most unaffordable places in the world to buy housing..........

Visited the vet, no, the doctor, for the first time in four years, for the same reason, and with pretty much the same results.

I'll spare you the reason besides mentioning I'm now immune to horror movies.

Netherlands has a major scarcity in medicine - for a long time a vague idea but I found out today when I needed medication for the issue I hinted to in my previous post - I need it today, it'll be available from July 3rd. If I hold out for that long, I won't need it anymore.

Discovered how insane the medicinal scarcity is when I looked it up - medicines for schizophrenes, epilepticcs, diabetics - the list of scarce medication is highly long.

Meanwhile in the UK there is medicine that my doctor says I need but the local NHS region won't allow her to prescribe. So I have to purchase it from a grubby online pharmacist at great price.

Bit by bit our societies are deteriorating in the provision of health services, roads, social security, housing, living standards, employment security etc etc. I've seen it happening since the late Seventies and it is happening throughout the western world. And the people who understand and care about it are effectively disenfranchised.

It is all pants and it is cold and wet outside today too. Beer is required.🍺

Yep the standard of living and services (forget tech its a smoke screen), has been steadily declining for decades and the gap between the wealthy and the rest has increased beyond doubt.
