  1. Past hour
  2. I do think that if you're in the shop for essentials, there's not much harm in buying non-essentials if they're already there. Plants in particular will just wither and be thrown away if not sold. A bit of gardening is good exercise, and is good for mental wellbeing. We also have to deal with a lot more unemployment and hardship after the crisis, if businesses have had to close down.
  3. Well, Greta Thunberg and the Extinction Rebellion loonies have got their wish. This is their world we are living now. With economic activity and travel at a minimum. Welcome to the brave New World.
  4. No. People having to stay in leads to boredom, which leads to stress, arguments, mental illness etc. Having something to keep occupied with while staying in is a big help, so I, and many others, will be glad they can buy DIY/home improvement supplies, gardening tools, seeds etc, etc.
  5. He seems to have lost a lot recently. Not sure if having a girlfriend 24 years his junior has encouraged him to exercise more....
  6. Saw Queen at Bingley Hall, Staffordshire, about 1976. Me and my 14 year old mates squeezed right up to the front barrier. It blew our little minds!!!
  7. Sadly and truthfully this is one of the main places to contract the virus as every one knows but we still have to eat, a bit of a dilema. Like I mentioned in previous post, just protect your self, its a start. Same without gloves then, they cant wash their hands after every customer either. Which I have already stated in previous post.
  8. And what difference do you think gloves will make, unless they change them after every customer (and have been trained on how to remove/replace/dispose of them safely) ?
  9. As I said it will become a greater danger as it gets older. More alpha particles will escape into the surroundings through the ageing seals an mechanisms Handling will become more dangerous as the dust spreads around inside the watch. The potential for the glass to break and release radioactive dust increases. Maintenance becomes extremely hazardous. The biggest danger is it being played with and/or mishandled by children and amateurs now or when "found" in the future. Giving an impression that the dangers can be ignored for now is a mistake.
  10. I was going to say you can run but cant hide boris, seems he cant do neither.
  11. Supermarkets are now one of the worst places to visit to catch the virus, with staff and customers not wearing masks they are coughing, sneezing and touching all products and surfaces.. Even people having shopping delivered may have contaminated products.. Everyone should wash all shopping to minimise the risk of getting the virus.. More supermarkets are starting to bring in extra measures to help but there is still more action needed...
  12. I don’t know about that, like most blokes his age he’s probably carrying a stone or two more than he should be.
  13. I know what you mean and it makes good sense in stead of keeping the same gloves on for long durations ie serving endless ques, but on the same token they dont get chance to leave the checkout customer after customer to wash their hands.
  14. As pointed out numerous times its a lot easier to clean your hands than it is to change your gloves after everything you touch.
  15. Today
  16. Avoid getting into a serious conversation with a goat because they will inevitably keep butting in.
  17. Boris is very over-weight, maybe that is why its taking him longer to recover?
  18. He was on tv last night and didn’t look well at all.
  19. I’ve not used cash for weeks.
  20. What about Aldi, check out staff are refusing to wear gloves whilst handling cash ( I think ) I used my card. but handling person after persons shopping,
  21. ‘Lean On Me,’ ‘Lovely Day’ singer Bill Withers dies at 81
  22. Perhaps the person will put a good dollop on themselves then light a fag up ……..
  23. I can't think of any better context to raise it. The NHS has been front and centre of all the headlines for weeks. We have had all the sob stories and the "inside sources" and the sad face photo opportunities and the finger pointing and vile abusive commentry about the government's failures and the celebrity endorsements and of course now the silly Thursday night Instagram get together and trendy Twitter hashtag ritual. Its a completely valid point to raise the topic of efficiencies within the organisation too. We see and hear all the screams that the organisation is underfunded, undersupplied and can't cope. We get at least annually the dramatic headline that it's on the brink of collapse all at the hands of this Tory government..... Oh how we've heard that so many times..... But god forbid any media outlet who dares to look a bit closer to home and brings up the issue that it's own operational approaches are far from perfect. Strangely, thats always a story that gets shouted down. Well quite frankly it shouldn't be. Is the NHS is on the brink as we keep hearing? Or is it bad management, bad allocation of resources and wasteful actions? These are genuine questions which should quite rightly be asked - even more so when there's a crisis like this - so if inefficiencies are found that can be nipped in the bud right now.
  24. I went to Tesco on Infirmary Road about an hour ago to get some essentials and I was very concerned about the behavior of some shoppers. One aisle had 12 customers on it who seemed oblivious to the social distancing measures we should all be taking.
