    A difficult job, in difficult times, that in my view he's stepped right up to the plate and gives reassurance.

    There will always be some outside of the boxes.

    The saying goes you can't please all the people all the time. Some people can't be pleased at any time.

    In a gesture of thanks to health service workers, people have been invited to join a mass round of applause from doorsteps, windows and balconies at 8pm tonight while landmarks turn blue.

    You may have stagger it if your door is less than 6' from your neighbours though. :emoticon-0100-smile

    Oh come on now mate, go back indoors and tell her you love her and to remember the old days when you made sweet love and ate patty butties for tea.

    Massage her shoulders, run a bath for her and put rose petals in there, she likes that :emoticon-0152-heart

    Then you need to...

    Never mind, I might get carried away here...

    So, genuine post, received email this morning from Sainsburys, copied below, eek, worrying, so the Government database with details of vulnerable people is to be shared with supermarkets, how secure will this be?? Scammers will be having a field day??

    "We will receive the government database this week which tells us which people in England the government considers to be most vulnerable. Where these people are already registered with us, we will start to write to them next week to offer them a delivery slot. We are also working hard to secure details for vulnerable people living in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland."

    Talking about scams, there seems to be spook emails going around about canned meat, just a warning, don’t open - it’s SPAM.

    On a lighter note, so today I put up on the wall a map of the world.... I gave "my other half" a dart and said "throw this and wherever it lands I'm taking you & the kids for a holiday when this pandemic is over". Turns out we're spending two weeks behind the fridge!

    I cycled past HMP Humber today and wondered what was happening with the prison population. Two to a cell..?... Officers coming into the prison with n o option but to move inside the distancing zone etc... imagine the commotion when 'no visitors' might have been announced...

    Approximately halfway behind Italy on the 2 week graph.

    Much further behind on the proper one TOM does.

    Will either be worst or second worst in the world on the Sun’s flavour of the day.

    Restricted UK testing protocol conveniently blurring figures...

    World lockdown within a month...

    You can hide figures but not corpses..

    Stay at home...save lives.

    Best of luck mate. I'm getting blamed for everything in a household full of women. Internet drops, it's my fault. Dog pisses on the rug, my fault. Supermarket only had **** kitchen towel that soaks up nowt, my fault. Endless. Bought a shed a few weeks ago, might go and put it together.
