Well it appears we may have it - just heard a Doctor describe the symptoms and it matches ours 100% - not quite a cold and not quite flu. Carina is suffering a lot more than me, but in reality for us

UK Virus ALERT   The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent virus threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, level may be raised

I don’t even find it boring to stay inside all day ...but I don’t understand why in one box of rice krispies there are 2453 pieces, and in the other one 2467!

In these times of lockdown, people get a little creative, just to go outside for a bit and take a short walk. Here are two funny examples:

In Romania, people are also in lockdown, and there are no busses, trains or tramvai's (railcar). and you need a certificate to be allowed to leave your home and take a short walk, with say the dog. If you don't have a propper paper, you'll be heavily fined. So, I just heard from friends there, that a man living with his family 50 km's from a larger town, went on his horse and rode 50 km's to the towns hospital, to visit his wife and new born. He didn't get fined by the police, as they thought he did not pose a risk to others.;)

Another man thought he needed a little bit of fresh air, so he filled a small plastic bag with water, slipped one of his aquarie fish into the plastic bag and holding it in the hand, he went for a short walk. The police didn't give him a fine. ;)

Kind regards,

jacques

On our walk today (which was even shorter than normal due to it blowing a good northerly down here), we saw three dog owners walking together in a group, and a bloke who’d driven to the park to take his dog for a walk. Not as bad as some areas, but it it’s clear that some people are still not getting the message, or think the advice doesn’t apply to them.

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?

That map IS usually more crowded. My daughter works for BA and she left this morning crewing a 9 day trip to Singapore from Heathrow. I think a lot of it still is repatriation flights to get people home.

Airbnb...I’m starting to think maybe Boris was too vague in his instructions

It is amazing how  they seem to be able to write in English but not understand it.     No I am being unkind    they really cant be that thick, perhaps its a google translate f**k up and they really meant something else.

No they are just complete and utter selfish stoopid numb fooks. End of. Time to stop making excuses for them.

 

On a lighter note been converting junk old pallets into wheeled storage boxes for garage - easier to move stuff around, make space etc. Self Isolation ain't too bad really. Even got the boy out of his bed doing jobs too.

Oh Dear! - A jobsworth Metropolitan Police officer has been filmed threatening to fine a bakery employee for drawing temporary lines on the pavement to help customers queue at a safe distance from each other.

Some Police are getting this so wrong.

I am sorry but in my very humble opinion that officer is an absolute knob. Has he really got nothing better to do? Next he'll be giving small kids a ticket for chalking that block game on the pavement where they throw a stone on to a number square. It really is idiots in the force like this that spoil it for the many officers who really do make a difference in what they do.

 He needs a stiff talking to by his Superior officer. No common sense at all. I'm sure @Kimberswill be along to tell me I should  go easy on him though as he is only doing his job! :).

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. 

So do i, in Eastwood. Didnt realise i had another Esprit owner nearby!

Clearly the sergeants' exam is a lot easier to pass these days and having an ounce of common sense actually puts you at a disadvantage.

The cops have added some black dye to a lake in the Peaks to make it less Instagrammable!! Great use of resources!

Well I think the bakery should send a complaint in about him - and I hope the local press highlight it - although I guess not many people are getting local papers at the moment!?

They did it in the hope that people will be less likely to travel there and congregate, which if it saves many trips to keep dispersing people that could save resources.

Clemo, are they going to put a blanket over Big Ben and hide all the palaces and every other attractions? All they've done is made it an object of curiosity that more people are likely to going to want to see now, it's not very smart.

If you saw the live air pictures of London today, it's dead. Nobody is there looking at the attractions

For some reason I can't view the video of the guy playing the piano or the cop one via TLF. I can see the one with the guy playing the piano if I copy the link and view via Facepalm, I mean Facebook.

The cop one is just blank on Facebook. Video been removed?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
