    Well at least the sun has been shining, allowing me, the missus and the even my sons to spend some time working in the garden. The raised vegetable beds are have been topped up are weed free and have been turned over, They are now ready for sowing over the coming weeks. The lawns have been cut and edged the flower beds (the wifes territory) weeded too.

    Now I am in charge of catering for tonight something else that I enjoy as if I am cooking they get what I want, so tonight it's Pork cooked in cider one of my favourites and I will wash it down with more cider as I am at not at work until tomorrow night.

    I hope that you are all staying in, staying positive and surviving as best as you can, keep well all.

    Yes. On my seventh day of virtual incarceration. We are allowed out to go to the nearest supermarket and local bakers, health centresa and. bizarrely, to tobacconists. If you have a dog you can walk it but only about 200 metres from your house. We can’t walk for exercise but luckily I have an exercise bike or I would be piling on the kilos. The period has just been extended to April 11, but I am certain it will go beyond that. We all go onto our balconies at 8 every evening to applaud the health workers and all those doing their best to keep us supplied. Fortunately we do not have any Covid 19 infections in our village yet and we don’t have a bunch of selfish people buying up ridiculous amounts of everything. I miss talking football with the Spanish guys in the bar but I have all you. guys on here to keep me amused. I hope you all come through this and the banter will continue when normality returns

    Tough times lay ahead that's for sure ,I hope itl prove to be lucky living in a tiny village in stokenchurch away from the crowds and I must say the people round here are looking after each other as best as they can. Hearing lots of stories about surrounding villages shops treble pricing for products the greedy bastards. Tesco's in high wycombe fair play to them let NHS staff get what they needed and gave them free bouquets of flowers to show their appreciation. :emoticon-0137-clapp

    We’re about to go into what the Governor calls a ‘pause’ here in NYC, not quite what California did with ‘shelter in place’ but close to it. I suspect it’ll escalate quickly, I heard the military are deployed in the West coast cities now and I suspect New York will need the National Guard or something to assist the medical services at some point.

    Life doesn’t feel too different yet, though from tomorrow I’ll be working from home in an apartment the size of a cupboard with 3 other people living in it, so we’ll see how I feel after a few days of that. I can get on my roof for a bit of peace and quiet at least. We can still go outside to shop for groceries or even go for a run, I’m lucky to live near Central Park so I can get over there and get some miles in without getting within 6ft of anyone.

    Even though the bars shut last Monday there are one or two opportunistically serving drinks in brown paper bags that are then drunk on the street outside them - all while remaining an appropriate distance away from other patrons of course. So far the police haven’t seemed too bothered about it but that will probably change tomorrow when the ‘pause’ comes into effect.

    If I’m honest I hadn’t realised how badly the state had been hit until a few days ago, NYS is the 4th most populous state but has over 50% of the US’s cases and NYC alone is nearly a third of the US cases, I think. People are starting to take it more seriously and I personally haven’t seen any of the panic buying we’ve seen in the UK and elsewhere, which is a blessing.

    Wherever you are guys, stay safe and well.

    Close family friend passed away last night from the virus. He was in his 80's, an absolute gentleman who always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say. Treated me like a million dollars every time we spoke even though I am (was) over five decades his junior. His wife and children/grandchildren couldn't even be there with him at the end. Horrendous way to go and really did hit home. Stay safe everyone x .

    My condolences CK. it is a very sobering thought that many of us my have to go through similar sadness in the next few months and not be able to say our farewells.

    Very sorry to hear this.

    All this **** has suddenly got very got real. Mrs B's step-dad was rushed into hospital last night with severe breathing difficulties. He's currently clinging on and we're awaiting the CV test results. If he's got it, it's highly likely that so has her mum.

    My mates daughter, she's 35, is a nurse at Tommys and she's got it. Currently, she's at home and we're all hoping for the best.

    Tonight, I had to stop my eldest going over to her boyfriends place by telling her that if she did this in a country run by a proper government, she'd be arrested to protect her and others and I didn't want her to go. Thankfully, she didn't. There's a lot of tension in the house, though.

    Stay safe out there.

    Just a reminder because I don't think the authorities are talking about this enough

    The virus that causes COVID-19 remains for several hours to days on surfaces and in aerosols, a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found.

    The study suggests that people may acquire the coronavirus through the air and after touching contaminated objects. Scientists discovered the virus is detectable for up to three hours in aerosols, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.

    "This virus is quite transmissible through relatively casual contact, making this pathogen very hard to contain," said James Lloyd-Smith, a co-author of the study and a UCLA professor of ecology and evolutionary biology. "If you're touching items that someone else has recently handled, be aware they could be contaminated and wash your hands."

    The study attempted to mimic the virus being deposited onto everyday surfaces in a household or hospital setting by an infected person through coughing or touching objects, for example. The scientists then investigated how long the virus remained infectious on these surfaces.

    The study's authors are from UCLA, the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Princeton University. They include Amandine Gamble, a UCLA postdoctoral researcher in Lloyd-Smith's laboratory.

    I've begun a policy where, if somebody is incapable of having a conversation without endlessly quoting Covid-19 infection and/or mortality rates, I tell them to shut up

    Mainly because it's ****ing tiresome
