Re: Coronavirus

Good summary of the misleading figures in the FT, sadly behind a paywall.

Re: Coronavirus

I truly think and the stats now clearly show it that far more should have been done to protect the elderly and very vulnerable from catching Covid from the off, both in care homes and Hospitals. They lock down 5-70 year olds where the cases of deaths arising from it are pretty low, yet let it rip th...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes Mark same here, it is genuine I now believe. Is it any wonder why people raise eyebrows though about the whole thing? That is the Gov.uk website not the Daily Mail. To me it's incredible to see it there and enforces what I believe still to be a massive, costly and pointless over reaction to the ...

Re: Coronavirus

It may have been posted or seen before, but a friend passed the link over to me last night. It appears on the face of it to be the Gov.uk site. Read what it says about Covid, just a few days before lock down. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/high-consequence-infectious-diseases-hcid?fbclid=IwAR2PgUdlkqbg...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes, the lock down was great for that, gardens better than they've been for years and the "Junk room" we've never touched in 25 years of living here is now a lovely extra room we'd forgotten we had. Only glitch was I made a Carlsberg fueled bid on a job lot of vintage steam Mamod and Wilseco engines...

Re: Wild Animals on the Loose ?

Don't know if anyone else has seen or noticed it but Foxes in Spain? We had loads of them around us at our place there........the noise every night and mornings at the time of year they had their offspring was amazing. But what truly amazed me was the speed of them if you spotted one. We have foxes ...

Re: Coronavirus

Good post DA and I agree with it all. However, my brother and I were discussing me going to see our parents, 97 and 93 years old. Obviously, I wanted to consult him and get his input as they are OUR parents and we both want to see them but also keep them safe. It's a joint decision and I respect hi...

Re: Coronavirus

Lavanda, Mark yes it is difficult, and this is all part of mine and Beachy's perceived doubts about things, it is not just not stacking. Misinformation being the culprit for these thoughts I reckon. A few of the beach/seaside pics you mention have already be called out as fake.......ie one of them w...

Re: Coronavirus

That's because the lockdown is effectively over. Let's face it you can drive your car for shopping, to meet friends, to go to work, to go to the country or seaside and can go out whenever you please...so where is the lockdown? It is for the individual now to make the choice whether he/she wants to j...

Re: Coronavirus

DA , I thought the proposal was 30 minutes for a drink and up to 90 minutrs if you are having food. Don’t know how that is to be policed. Wow, nor do I. I can think of some bar owners we knew who'd have the balls to enforce it and some who simply don't. Another rule which if true will set person on...

Olive, very sad to hear your thoughts there, I truly hope on this occasion you are wrong....and that you return to Spain very soon and normality returns shortly after. Keep us posted. Another question if I may. A good friend of ours in the UK has a nice restaurant, probably 50 covers inside and a lo...

I don't think anyone was wearing them on the beach or the terrace bars I visited on Saturday and hardly anyone had one on at the picnic area i was at on Sunday, including the two local police officers driving slowly along in their car.

That's good to know. Thanks!

Re: Coronavirus

This is the case for everybody. A couple of weeks ago I had never worn one either. it really isn't such a big deal. I would say that the wearing of masks will stay for a while. I'm sure as with all things, people will be informed of the legal requirement. For tourists I can't see any other time the...

Re: Coronavirus

Do you ever think there'll come a day when you have the confidence to not carry a mask with you, and not feel the need to wash your hands and face every half hour? (Not aimed at anyone in particular and a genuine question I've thought about for a while) If so what will be the moment you revert back ...

I use whatsapp myself as you know, and couldn't really care less if others choose to or not Mark. Same goes with Facebook.

Re: Coronavirus

Maybe more people will take the opportunity to visit the gems they have close to where they live. I'd hope so too Mark but it will purely depend on the pricing in the Travel agents window. We all know by now you can get a fortnights cruise or package holiday to Spain, Mexico, The Caribbean wherever...

I spent a fruitless half hour last night on Brittany Ferries and failed to make a booking to get back to Spain. Plenty of people booking. Haven't been on their site for a week. I log in to read the MD's updates. Last time I read them all the boats were on Freight duties. Why out of interest could y...
