Re: the flu is back

More like we found a way to control the flu, which is less transmissible than covid, but we’ve given up on
public health restrictions….

I have my first cold in two years this week (two negative...

Re: Final decision

See in Wales, the rugby was such a big event, we would either be at a game or out in the pub watching it with friends. When it was the Wales v England game (wife v husband) my parents would have the...

Re: Final decision

😆

You know looking back, I wonder if half the problem was that I never really tried to fit in culturally. We just streamed whatever we wanted from the UK, and left “Canadian tv and sports alone”....

I think most people have figured out how to access what shows they want ;)

Re: Final decision

Thank you :)



What was it that you loved more this time? I’ve generally been in agreement with what Ford has done, but schools closing was just a bridge too far for me this time. For his...

Re: Final decision

*Update*

So a lot has happened and not much at the same time. I find that my friends in either country have biased opinions and it’s difficult to have a real conversation about it, so I guess it’s...

Re: Coronavirus

Unless you’re moderately or severely immunocompromised then you or the general public are not being offered a booster.

For the immunocompromised, the fourth dose is actually the booster, three...

Just curious, but are you paying their university fees?

Re: Conflicted

You know what they say in Canada as well as the UK… there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. Invest in a great raincoat; it’ll be a darn site cheaper than all the gear you’ll have to...

Re: Goggle box- anything worth watching on TV?

I just finished it too, and I thought number 1 was pretty implausible.

Re: Conflicted

You know if you move to Calgary, it would be the equivalent of moving to Texas? Alberta is red neck country and I think the government there is pretty conservative or right wing thinking- albeit I...

Re: Conflicted

I wouldn’t bank on it going down though; just back to a more steady increase. Calgary I believe is a different housing scenario. Subject to the demands of the oil industry in Alberta. It dropped...

Re: Conflicted

You need to move for more than weather, in my opinion anyway.

What seems ideal quickly comes with issues of it’s own; here in Muskoka, Ontario, lots of snow/outdoor activities but it’s been as...

Re: Canadian Schooling

Although the way the housing market is here, my kids will have to do very well at becoming a stock broker/venture capitalist to be able to afford to buy something here. In the last two years our...

Re: Moving back to UK from Australia to start A levels

My son is a late August baby so will be a year behind his UK peers, but in reality will be in the right age group, so starting his A-Levels from the beginning. He also wants to move home and is happy...

Re: Moving back to UK from Australia to start A levels

We’re 95% settled on a move back to the UK with our Grade 11 student (he’s 16) this summer. I’ve spoken to the local sixth form who will accept him to start A-levels in September. He will also do...

Re: Moving Back to Scotland

I can’t offer you any advice. Similar boat with my eldest and for similar reasons feel like it’s next year or stay forever….

I still haven’t decided what to do, and we do have to decide soon. I’m...

Re: Finally, moving back to England!

We renewed the kids passport last month from Canada. It took a bit longer than usual but still around 6 weeks.

Re: Anyone flown to Canada with a proof of previous positive COVID-19 PCR test?

Negative, but the source doesn’t matter, only the result and the date if it’s positive… as long as you clearly identify who the result is for etc.

Re: Anyone flown to Canada with a proof of previous positive COVID-19 PCR test?

Nobody asked me where my PCR result was from. They only want to see the result, which is either negative or between 14-90(?) days if it’s positive. The only reason it has to be private is because the...

Re: Coronavirus

It’s not yet really anywhere. The idea of endemicity is when the disease/virus has reached a level of death which is an acceptable loss to society. Sometime next year we will probably achieve this...

For the most part, new cases are skewed towards three quaters or two thirds of cases are unvaccinated with the odd day producing more. There still is a clear trend towards unvaccinated contributing...
