    Man, I’ve been reading about those fires. Scary to even read about. Stay safe, my Aussie friends.

    Thanks Gerry. Yeah it's been nonstop... even my sister-in-law's husband's workplace burned down!

    I'll be going away on holiday next week, driving up to the border of NSW and QLD, but unsure if there's a safe route at this stage... I think we were going straight up rather than the east coast (where alot of fires are).

    How’s your air quality? We had wildfires last year (or was it the year before?) that came within 60 miles (~100 km) of us on 3 sides, and it got bad enough at times that outdoor sporting events were cancelled.

    I'm not sure overall, but today was the first I noticed it pretty heavily... opened the windows and front door to cool the house down and all I could smell was smoke :s

    No excuses are needed friend! Just wanting to type the word bacon is more than enough reason to say...

    SAG movie screeners are coming in. So far I have Harriet, Joker, Parasite, Marriage Story and The Irishman. Waiting for Jojo Rabbit, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Bombshell. Since I'm currently working my way through the series Breaking Bad - just finished Season 1 last night - I don't know where the heck I'm going to find the time because one must have priorities.

    I'm going to have to take some time off from work. :)

    type 'bacon' six times fast while looking in the fridge and all of your bacon will disappear and be replaced with vegetables! Don't try it! Not worth it...

    Stay safe all you Aussie guys.

    I don't follow news much any more, kind of scary seeing what your country is going through.

    Stay safe, my brothers.

    Simon, how are things with the fires down under? Always good to get a 1st person perspective.

    Hey @dvcochran, things aren't great at the moment... very scary times, I wrote a bit earlier in the thread about it (post #7519), where we are is safe at the moment but it's been spreading so very rapidly it's hard to know... we actually got some rain today though which hopefully will help..

    It's hard to say whether anyone is safe at this stage, it's been absolutely horrendous...

    Many people are really bashing the government and leaders, saying they're not doing enough yadayada... there's been alot of support and raising money, I think even Pink gave a shoutout to help Aus!

    Thanks for thinkin of us :)

    Ahh.. we've now had to cancel our holiday due to the fires... too risky. Roads are being blocked and cars are bumper to bumper with so many evacuations happening. The wind changes direction without warning and there are too many blazing fires happening.

    Apparently there are about 139 blazing fires happening now in NSW alone..

    Really bummed out, was really looking forward to it..

    But our priority is safety of course

    I worked all night on New Year's too. Some sadist scheduled a facility switch AND a provider database switch on New Year's night. Ahhh, the glamorous life of a systems analyst.

    Damn, that does suck. In one article I read this weekend, the term "apocalyptic" was applied. With 139 fires in NSW, I think it appropriate.123
