    Novak Djokovic has revealed he will be coming to Melbourne for the Australian Open after being granted an exemption, but he’s set to receive a frosty reception.

    Novak won’t be exempt from Melbourne’s fury

    Daughter said her Doc said 16 of his other patients suffered similarly to her from the Frankenvax – just one small sample.

    Femme Paramedics who were called to take her to hospital for testing were not amused apparently and dissed the Doc in front of my already distressed daughter during the trip, i.e. it was NOT the Frankenvax, according to the militant numptards and she says her Doc has been rather cowed since – due to small town crunts.

    Harold Baldr:

    NEPAL, HIMALAYA: Ever since I’d ran into an Indian trekker coming back down along the Langtang river on my first day of this Himalayan excursion, I’ve had one thing on my mind: get to Tibet Guesthouse at Lama Hotel rest-stop and try their Gongo (or Roksi as it’s called in Nepal).

    I always like to sample locally made brews when I’m in a new country and according to this Indian who had just spent the previous night at Tibet Hotel, the owner there had made the best Gongo he’d ever had in his entire life.

    In fact, and I quote: “He has brewed it to perfection!”, he said.

    That’s why I set out from Bamboo Lodge so early in the morning without even eating anything other than a granola bar. I wanted to get to Tibet Guesthouse as soon as possible to start the day like any real man should: with a fresh shot of Gongo!

    What I didn’t expect though was to run into the coolest and nicest couple I met on my whole Himalayan trekking adventure. A couple that started the very first lodge at the Hotel Lama location over 40 years ago and are still running that same guesthouse today.

    My unvaxxed sister in Wales UK got a Covid infection after Christmas. Asked her last night if it was more like a cold or flu.

Says feeling ok now, but waiting for sense of smell to return.

    She was taking zinc, vit D and C once she tested positive. Sounds just the same as someone vaxxed reporting their Covid symptoms, except they would say ‘if it wasn’t for the vax it would have been far worse’.
