Sanity keeper.

Each day from teatime onwards we have a News curfew in place, by then we have heard all the news we need to hear!
We are even actively watching comedies before bed.  (no not re-runs of my races ???)
 
Not that we are not taking all this seriously, as we are taking every precaution we can, but  many people must be getting not only mesmerised by the wall to wall coverage but must also must be making themselves more and more depressed by their new found obsession to know and find out everything surrounding this horrible deadly disease  :(.     
All the best Clive

I feel that we have it coming too. No one takes this seriously...

Feel sorry for Sarah. Be strong

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

They are still not.
Lisa popped out to do the post to have a walk but keep distance from people and had an old boy come near her, who exclaimed he was not bothered  :violent1:!

I know we live in a society where people have a freedom of expression and entitled to an opinion.

However I was to share this with you all.

For those who know me well enough will know my vocabulary is quite select and direct.

The mrc is a “family show” so I won’t say what’s on my mind, but I’m sure you can guess

Put that person in a ward full of infected people and then in isolation with no medical assistance and see if their view changes  :angryfire:

Unbelievable (polite version)  :angry5:

There is a lot of mis-information doing the rounds at the moment, I overheard this conversation between a nurse & a Doctor in the surgery this morning  "if you get an email from the Department of Health saying not to eat tinned pork because it contains Covid-19, ignore it.
It’s spam"
