A Pay It Forward Wall
All coffee shops should consider this idea. I forgot my purse and the cashier said I could use one of the slips on this wall. Many of the slips are for local hospital staff and I chose a more general one. Of course I posted one the next day with the amount I had taken however there was no obligation to do that. This is a simple, clever way to recognise people in need, including someone who is just forgetful!

Australia needs a world-beating vaccine roll-out NOW
Israel is the world’s gold standard with 57 per cent of its population “fully” vaccinated. The US is close behind with 40 per cent. Others leading the pack include the UK, Singapore and Lithuania, all with more than 20 per cent rates of complete coverage, meaning both jabs where applicable. Australia is at 1.9%.Flights between North America and Europe are due to resume this month. Flights between Australia and Europe up to December this year are being cancelled.Australia’s slow start means it will need a world-beating surge to catch up. We need to get 65 per cent of the population vaccinated.Suggestions? http://www.afr.com/news/politics/national/australia-needs-a-world-beating-vaccine-rollout-now-20210528-p57
