Thank you for refreshing memory on why this journey will be worth it in the end!

Meanwhile, if you like beer, you'll definitely be spoilt for choice; there's a zillion brands to pick from.
Also, a visit to any brewery (which are quite commonplace) and you can order a tasting paddle/tray to sample all the beers the particular brewery makes. Pic 1 is just a random pub with beer 'on tap' (always mortuary standard wink), while pic 2 shows the choice of beers within my view at a liquor store. Pic 3 is a paddle I sampled, although the brewery made more than 10 beers.

read this news a minute ago, need confirmation
SUBCLASS 189 VISA TO BE SCRAPPED WHICH ALLOW SKILLED MIGRANTS TO GAIN RESIDENCY WITHOUT JOB FROM JULY 2019 AS STATES/TERRITORIES TO DECIDE MIGRATION INTAKE NOT THE FEDERAL GOVT
============
AUSTRALIA STATES AND TERRITORIES TO DETERMINE PERMANENT MIGRATION INTAKE AS ANNOUNCED BY PRIME MINISTER BY SUBMITTING THEIR ANNUAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SKILLED MIGRANTS WITH PROOF FOR HAVING SUFFICIENT INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT MIGRATION NEEDS AND TO BENEFITS WA SA TASMANIA NT BUT VICTORIA AND NSW ALREADY DECIDED TO REDUCE INTAKE

12/11/2018
Govt considering plan for states to set migrant rate

Responsibility for determining the permanent migration intake could be shifted to the states and territories under a new plan reportedly being considered by the Morrison government. The proposal would see the states and territories submit their annual requirements for skilled migrants and force them to prove they had sufficient infrastructure to support migration needs, the Australian reports. While the proposal remains in its early stages of development, Cabinet is likely to approve the creation of a population taskforce as part of a broader population plan.

The Morrison government is reportedly considering a major shift on immigration policy that would see the states given the leading role in requesting the number of skilled migrants they need each year.

The federal government sets an annual cap for skilled and family migration – currently at 190,000 – with skilled migrants distributed through a range of visa streams.

The Australian newspaper reports the shift has been discussed at “senior levels” of the Morrison government.

Asked about the story on Monday, Mr Morrison said the federal government would “always” set the overall cap.

But he said states were in the “best position” to determine how many migrants they could take, given their role in planning transport, roads and housing.

The prime minister said the “top-down” approach to immigration needed to be rethought.

The office of immigration minister David Coleman refused to comment on the story when contacted by SBS News, saying the minister could not discuss matters that may or may not be the subject of cabinet discussions.

Under the reported plan, the states would be asked to come to the federal government each year with a request for a number of skilled migrants.

hey would be required to demonstrate they had sufficient infrastructure to handle the resulting population growth.

Australia’s annual intake of permanent migrants fell to its lowest level in a decade under the leadership of the Turnbull government.

Despite the cap remaining at 190,000 in the last financial year, where it has remained since 2011, the actual intake fell to 163,000 under the Turnbull government.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said more rigorous vetting of family and skilled applicants had led to the decline.

The government has flagged a new direction on population policy. It is also reportedly working on a change to direct more skilled migrants to regional Australia.

Back to class********************
Hummmmmm ladies I must say I am really getting inspired with all these fabrics you guys are posting here.gringrin biko keep them coming

Now let's talk about the cowl neck line
The cowl neck has one distinctive feature and that's the use of excess fabric used to form the neck line.the exccess fabric tipically sags down to for this neck line .this neck line can go with any type of sleeve,sleeveless short sleeve,qauter sleeve or lone sleeve.depending on you,you can make the front and back of the sag as cowl neck or you make only the front sag.but while measuring the fabric for the neck line,be carefull not to make it too wide as this would make it loose shape and may fall off the neck if its too bigwink
