    You can tell I'm self isolating and not having any human contact can't you!
    I have barely spoke to anyone for five days.

    Yeah, I still have a vivid picture in my mind the first time I walked into one of those shops. I'd heard about them, but my jaw still dropped.
    Type 25 - I'm assuming VW Combi/Transporter.

    Yep. Converted bus. 1991, last of the 25's, with a 2.1 inj engine. It was a beast.

    Weirdly, also known as a Type 3. There is a reason why, but I can't remember it. Anyway, the following front engined model was the Type 4. My eldest brother has a 5 speed T25/3 and my second eldest has a T4. Both campervans.

    God, if there was know one to witness it, I'd well get back into stonerism.
    Weeks like this remind me of the missing contentment of nothingness.

    Unfortunately never had the pleasure of taking shrooms, though I've taken other hallucinogenics. Still disappoints me now a bit if I'm honest.

    Hello fellow Not-606ers. Just to let anyone who may be interested that I am currently in “lockdown” in what I consider almost a paradise, but some may think is hell! I’m the sole surviving volunteer for WildlifeACT at uMkuze game reserve in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, where I’m working with the charity to monitor and try to protect endangered wildlife such as Wild Dog, Black Rhino, Lion, Leopard and Cheetah. I’ve decided to stay (other volunteers went home) for the next 3 weeks minimum as there’s less chance here of catching the virus as no one is allowed in or out (legally) of the reserve. It’s extremely hot and humid and the working hours are crazy, but I’m loving it. Hope everyone is doing ok and not going stir crazy with no footie!
    keep safe, healthy and sane, my friends. I’ll check in when I can - probably weekly if possible - and will send pics when I’m back if anyone is interested. It’s a worthwhile enterprise for anyone interested in conservation work (we have had some heartbreaking moments) and I can thoroughly recommend it. Cheers!

    Had a conversation with a spider today who is also self-isolating.

    He seems nice.

    He's a web designer.

    I thought I was Jack Reacher, this morning.
    I was walking to the local Coop and everyone kept crossing the road to avoid me.

    A little distraction. They say electric cars don't make any noise. To some extent that's true, but they make just as much tyre noise as any type of car. However, if you really gun them they can sound like little jets. Just listen to the first minute of this video [turn up volume]. This is real sound, not simulated:

    Can you hear it? Sounds like it's saying "future" to me. <laugh>

    If anyone knows how to fix some broken hinges, my door’s always open.

    A bloke goes in to a pub taking his pet monkey with him, while he’s having his pint the monkey is running around misbehaving, jumps on to a table breaks a few glasses then jumps on a snooker table and swallows a snooker ball. The bartender asks the man to control his monkey and points out the damage done by him. The man pays for his drink and for the damage done by his monkey and leaves. He visits the pub a few months later again with his monkey, the monkey jumps on to the bar, picks a grape from the fruit bowl, shoves it up his behind then eats it.

    The bartender says`Did you see what your monkey just did?’

    The man replies `Yes, he measures everything in his backside first before eating it since the time he ate a snooker ball!’

    Did you hear about the Yacht builder that had to work from home?

    His sails went through the roof.
