The Stay Safe Board / Re: Omicron

My wife was in a rehab hospital, after a week in hospital after an operation. Each time I visited her in rehab, I was asked to log in via the QR code, in Sydney, AND also show my double vaccination record. If I forgot my mask, they had plenty to hand out.

Where we have dramas, it is with the anti-vaxxers who insist on gathering in large numbers, carrying on about their "rights", forgetting totally, that with EVERY right, there is a corresponding RESPONSIBILITY, some thing the legal profession is trying to eliminate.

Tickettyboo, thank you very much for that information. I was not aware of that record at all :-[, so am very grateful to you for finding it. It adds just another bit of history for Stephen Cushing, who had an interesting life.

Again, many thanks

Treetotal, thank you for your explanation.

Now that you have pointed it out, I can see it. Not at all obvious to me when I first saw it :P

mckha489, thank you for your very prompt reply. I thought it might be that, but was not certain enough to state it, so asked the brilliant Rootschatters for help.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Mode of Burial

Could someone please tell me what the mode of burial might be for the second and third lines. I THINK it could be Freehol & Grave, but am not at all sure.
 
If it is Freehol, what does that mean, as I have ever seen that word before, so cannot relate it to anything.

The burial is 22 April 1891, at Toxteth Park Cemetery, for Stephen Cushing. The mode of burial is the only part I cannot work out.

The Stay Safe Board / Re: Shall we be able to spend Christmas with our families?

Here in the northern suburbs of Sydney, the vast majority of people wear masks in shopping centre etc, as is the requirement.

OH and I are both double jabbed with AstraZenica. It  is quite possible that OH will get a booster.

Currently she is in hospital, and in order to visit her, I have to log onto the QR code, and display it to the receptionist, and then show my vaccination certificate. I do not consider it a problem, as it hopefully keeps the virus out of "normal" hospitalisations, so that the sick and injured do not get sick from the virus from those who do not care about other people.

You can spend Christmas with your family if you choose to.

Not if they live in Western Australia :-X

They have jailed some people who crossed the border "illegally", to watch the AFL Grand Final.

They also have NO intention of letting ANYONE into the state until sometime next year :P

There goes the tourist trade ::)
