    I am pleased she has resigned. What ever made her think she could flout the rules - especially as she was urging everyone to follow the rules with such conviction.

    Our lives are not important.

    Only way to see it

    But too be fair she IS only following the govt's lead.
    I mean why else did it take body bags before they began to take this seriously

    Their primary role,. All these so called experts IS to look out for danger and take the necessary steps to stop, prevent or limit the danger as much as possible.
    Otherwise WHAT purpose DO they serve ??

    This shower of sh1 te, were all in the bar sipping sherry when the HMS UK ran aground on the COVID iceberg the world had been tracking since early January.

    We are now in April and hospitals are using binbags to keep themselves safe, no matter how many times Hancock tells us they are lying because he's ordered Milliions & millions of PPE
    Bus drivers prison staff..all going to work and being killed by a lack of action or basic understanding by THIS Govt..

    All those dead doctors and nurses above, would NOT be dead if we had a govt that had taken this seriously from day ONE

    WE owe them that much, that we don't just sweep their deaths under the carpet because " these things happen"
    they DON'T and SHOULDN'T have

    Imho.

    Major moral questions about just what I ask my children and by implication grandchildren to do/risk on my behalf probably for about 2 years. Triggered by @geefull posting about Tesco destocking chocolate :arghh: I obviously want Julie to get better but the issue then becomes how morally and logistically I carry out my obligation to allow her to live her life e,g, walking dogs and responsibly sourcing food whilst I shield to ensure I don't put others at risk. Search for click and collect supermarkets within what I consider a safe distance for her and the boys is a focus today.
    Edit: It is beyond me as to why supermarket IT teams can't run a simple query to find all registered customers with an address matching that of a shielding person. What am I missing here?

    Had my video call with my doc and he is happy with how things are going. He's keeping me on the steroids for another week to take the strain off. As he pointed out I'm not out of the woods but I can see the edge, existing conditions will slow me down but such is life :)

    The best part was the start of the call, he looks at me and goes "I'm admitting you to the hospital now". When I asked why he goes on to say "listen to yourself, you sound like a steam train". I pointed out I was vacuuming when he called, the first time I've done anything in a week. His reply was remarkably un-doctor like :)

    Brilliant news, attitude, relationship with your Dr and vindication of what technology can do for us at its best. Have I missed anything - maybe your stylist or hairdresser?

    Good morning everyone from the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of fortitude, “we’ll meet again” and tigers spreading rumours in New York came in at a 4.7 this am

    Found a bag of cognitive reserve last night so tested it’s efficacy with a bottle of merlot - seems fine for the price.

    My mother has begun painting again - she has not been able to do very much since having a new shoulder built by those fine sculptors in Bordeaux. Not with her chinese brushes, some of which are far too heavy for her now - but with watercolours. My father though is now busying himself stringing new vines in his potager and muttering about reduced stocks of wine.

    For myself, kofee stocks need replenishing. Best go and check on that and take a sample of what is left.

    best be careful no one has a crossbow and mistake you for prey..;)

    FANTASTIC news to hear you are on the mend my friend.
    guess this means i am now ONE further back in the queue for the PC setup, tho :sorry:...

    but that DOES seem a small price to pay for SUCH good news...:D

    Looks like you will indeed
    Live Long & Prosper

    Nothing to forgive, these things happen and can be so frustrating. Some good landscapes and seascapes from you I suggest you try and get some good watercolour paper which you can wet and then paint, cold pressed is the best in my opinion.

    following lead of govt as outlined above., perhaps.

    sure there is a reason, but lets be fair they ALL only found out about this terrible virus yesterday,

    sure Hancock & Co, have had informed discussions with them about the seriousness of the situation....

    yeah, your right...who am i kidding...:hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:

    keep forgetting if doctors and nurses, our heroes are just so much collateral damage,
    what chance do we have.

    agree that Koffee stock replenishing is of vital importance at the moment.

    No idea how to rate this as no idea *** this is all about but took up some of my 3 months so thanks. O/T I can get keto chocolate delivered from Germany long before groceries from any UK supermarket. In no way linked to the breath taking arrogance and total disregard for life of someone who thinks the only person who can properly direct the protection of 60 million people is him from a hospital bed. No sir.
