Folks, I am a “Cash on hands” person, unfortunately more shops in Melbourne are “reluctant” to accept cash!

Even though Australian banknotes are plastic… well, polymer! You see folks! It’s genuinely “coincident” that COVID19 is “forcing” us into Cashless society! I just wonder whose idea of the cashless society is at the first place? And now how people would help other homeless fellow human beings!

Anyway, today I am going to stay home to “tune up” my bike. So I made a quick browsing for headlines around the net:
