Wife has seen the latest advice that going for your daily walk can bring the virus in on your shoes. So I am in the study working (I'm taking a 5 minute break) and all I can smell is chlorine as she is washing the floors. Looks like laps of the garden and the cross trainer from now on. 

Best wishes to EVERYONE suffering from contracting and fighting this disease.

You’re going to love this. We live adjacent to a pub and it has now been correctly closed for almost a full week. However since the pub has a nice big beer garden and the sun has been shining, dog owners have taken this new opportunity to drive their families and dogs down there, park up, let the dogs go and play and have a shit, whilst the people squeeze up on the only available picnic bench with their own refreshments and have a nice sociable chat. They don’t even walk their dogs there! There are two car loads there at the moment. Pricks.

I live next to a huge park.  Just been over there for my little bit of exercise.  Busy car park, groups cycling, groups walking dogs, groups even playing football.  No way are they all family members.  I have no idea what it'll take to get people to toe the line.  Well, I do, but it's illegal.

I believe it even comes in a purpose-made dispenser,  i remember it from what seemed way too many scenes in "All creatures great & small".

Yes, it's being done and more regularly than you think. Simple. Cough on me, smile and you've got a nice place to stay and a criminal record for Assault Police.

Not you but must be one of your colleagues, hope that officer is OK.

Shouldn't the guy in the cartoon have the garage door open so that he can make the car go vroom, vroom?

How longs this lockdown on for.??

had an amazing clear up outside the last couple of days. Lawn mowed. Our wild area which never gets any attention cleared and tidied. Tomorrow the ripped plastic on the poly tunnel will get addressed - gonna shorten it by a few hoops for now to solve the problem. Missus has planted loads of veg in newspaper oragami pots the kids made. 

We've had a huge fire outside of prunings and trimmings - I could seriously do with a few more days of this. Need to clear out he old hay barn of the last few bales - I can get the spitfire relocated in there then. Next it’ll be Esprit fettling time. 

Even had some lights delivered for the next hen shed. Now schools out - and my buddy can’t work with me - Danny has no choice but to graft with Dad. He’s looking forward to that as he gets paid 🤪

Sadly though - one of the big car dealerships I work for has gone on lockdown til mid April at least - owing me a tump of money.

oh well.....

I'm puzzled or I have not understood things?

I thought air travel was basically a no-go now other than flights that were getting people home?

Maybe I am looking at historical data playing on here?

I was working outside today and there're usually several planes visible travelling in both directions - i think its Heathrow to America.

Today there was one every now and then   mostly going west. The sky was almost entirely blue,  and  we could hear birds calling half a mile off.

I guess that data map is usually a lot more crowded.

I noticed several jet trails in the sky the other evening, so there are flights, but how many of those are cargo?

 

At the local airport (Nowich, a rather small provincial one) we have quite a few British Airway jets parked up, I guess it's cheaper to park them there than at the airports they normally fly from.

Are Lotus still making cars.  Most of the manufacturers have stopped while this crisis is on but I haven't heard news from Norfolk.

If you hadn't already heard by now they closed the factory on Tuesday.

(sorry only now catching up with this thread)

Plenty of freight flights up there plus mail and other such commercial flights and some planes moving to cheaper locations for storage. Pretty quiet compared to normal though.

I live near Southend airport, it’s been very quite but with the odd plane taking off. Also live under the flight paths into London as they go down the Thames, a huge drop in the number of aircraft, not seen any vapour trails for about a week now.

The video is in French but this is what is happening currently in Paris. They built in the street Hand sanitizer gel. It's not fake, it's true. Welcome to the third world welcome to the Macron startup nation :
