  1. Aye sorry to hear that. Thankfully that wasn't and isn't the case with me and, forunately I am able to cope and deal with it, day by day. Thankfully not an extreme case.
  2. Hmmmm. Seems you may have read the above post then? Well good. Should be interested to hear what you think on the issue and any evidence or info you may have to offer. Seems also like you haven't maybe yet worked out that sometimes capitalization or random capitalization is used for "Emphasis" by some people. Anyway, thankyou for your attention to detail.
  3. Aye, hmmm, I see your point...and Thankyou, I will bear that in mind for the future,... if there is one. In the meantime on slightly more important matters I am pleased to know that the Nightingale Nurse NHS Temp Hospital in London ExCEL is only a remedial and palliative hospital, didn't know that before. Pleased to know too, that I am not the only one who appears to be gravely concerned about the Virus being pre-transmitted there...and potentially up to 16'000 NHS staff and volunteers being subjected to, exposed to the Corona Virus.......totally un-necessarily. I am correct in thinking that this WHOLE Lockdown and P.P.E/Testing furore IS about NOT spreading the Virus? In that case, I still wonder WHY the planners of the Nightingale ExCEL chose NOT to follow the above procedures? Beggars Belief.
  4. Derby Tup - Quick response: Pointless using anti-bacterial whatever, to protect from the virus, because virus are not affected by anti-bacterials. WHO advised that face masks were not necessary for general public and those general public who are wearing them (and gloves) have contributed to the short supply of PPE which is urgently needed in hospital. I observe social distancing but see no need whatsoever to add to the shortages in hospital of PPE for those who need them most. ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Hmmm. Thanks for the reply, but the article that you responded to, above, is Primarily about a Start from Scratch, NHS, purpose built Contagion HOSPITAL. That is, skilled people building and working in a Purpose built HOSPITAL without P.P.E. or social distancing,so maybe spreading the contagion into the Hospital? So, the question is, pertinent, Is it a good idea to NOT have PPE for workers, volunteers, soldiers building a Contagion treatment hospital, given that, up to 4,000 sick and ill patients and 16,000 largely NON-Tested staff will be in there, from today, I think? Doesn't seem so very practical or sensible even to me. Just wonder if I am expecting too much.
  5. Hello Doyle. In answer to your question of March 2, 2020, it would seem "Not", huh? I have lived with OCD all of my life, but don't think it is or has been too extreme. Came to realise that I actually HAD OCD when I was around 45 - 50 years old or so....!! I mean nobody TELLS you that you have it right? So you just think that what you are doing is normal? That is/was the case for me, anyhow. Ni mind'eh?
  6. That's another sad death. R.I.P fella. Thankyou.
  7. 1.4.2020. Lex Luthor -A spokesperson for the family said it was made even worse by the fact that his mother was not allowed to be by his bedside and he died alone. You don't even want to imagine how terrible that must be. Baron 99 And now there is only a maximum of 5 mourners allowed at a funeral so families possibly won't have a chance for a final goodbye. …........................................................................................................................................................ 25.3.2020 Serious and so VERY very sad. Urge anyone to read this link and take it in what it means....... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52031539 It kind of relates to another (Italy) article from around the End of February, we, in the UK, are a few weeks or so behind Italy in the Corona Virus repercussions. Not good news, nor a good outlook in any way, really. Ni mind'eh?
  8. Hello Justin Smith. Thanks for the post. Maybe a BIT picky, and just an amendment, but Dropout did not say the above, it was just quoted from, I believe, One Wheel Dave or maybe Taxman? Dropout commented how Remarkable it seemed that all of this money had suddenly appeared, it seemed! Thanks again.
  9. Is this permitted? (Sorry I don't know if it is permitted, or not).Is this Sensible is maybe a more pertinent question? The (Daily) Mirror, online version of 31.3.2020. reported the Nightingale Nurse Temporary NHS Hospital built by Volunteers and army in around 10 days or less. So far so good. Great.... However, all of the photographs, at least in the Mirror article showed that, with the exception of yellow high viz jackets, NOT a single volunteer or soldier was wearing any kind of P.P.E, Mask, gloves or anything of the sort resembling P.P.E. (sorry, the link appears to have gone/been changed now). Questions, Is this permitted? Is this sensible? Part of the article quoted Corona as the Invisible Virus, so, I suppose that, before a single solitary Doctor/Nurse, support worker or patient goes ANYWHERE near the place, they will, of course, be dousing the whole place 100% with Anti-Bacterial/Disinfectant/Bleach and the like? Including, Carpets, Mats fitted, all structural surfaces including screws fitted, etc. Seemingly P.P.E and Common sense, don't always equate.
  10. Posted Monday at 21:55 (edited) One wheel Dave It is interesting just how much has been done which, prior to coronavirus was deemed 'impossible'. I know coronavirus is serious, but then again, so is complete ecosystem failure, and the efforts to reduce carbon emmissions have been pretty weak, in comparison to say, grounding 90% of all airplanes, which was arranged in a very short period of time when the virus hit. If that had been done 10 years ago the climate crisis could well have been averted, but, instead, they were building new airports! And, as you point out, why all the death and misery caused by austerity, clearly the money was available all along. ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................Hmmmm. Certainly interesting points to consider there, on Coronavirus and it's repercussions. Remarkable how all this money, aircraft grounding, etc, etc, HAS suddenly appeared, as you say. Cleaner air, in some places too, for the time being anyhow....and hopefully, I said, hopefully, a chance for some of the Wildlife to thrive. Do hope, for example, that some of the Foxes can live and breed out in the wild, without Horses and Hounds chasing them down and around and sometimes ripping them to bits. Then again, I shouldn't think for a minute, that the Police will be Policing the likelihood or possibility of Landowners,etc, setting (illegal) traps and the like. ALL related to Coronavirus....in that, ironically THANKS to Corona Virus, ecosystem and nature, temporarily at least, has a chance to live and thrive.!
  11. Long time Local Councillor, Community participation and former Sheffield Lord Mayor. I knew Pat for a lot of years. All round GOOD egg. R.I.P. Pat. God Bless.
  12. She’s dead, and I’m quarantined. That’s how the story ends. I keep going back over it in loops, trying to find a way to sweeten it, but nothing changes the facts. I wasn’t there with her at the end. I didn’t get to say goodbye. I don’t even know where her body is right now, or if the only thing that’s left is her ashes. From normal life to this hell in a week. That’s how long it took. How am I supposed to make any sense of that? Wonder if anyone read this sad case? It's a Washington Post article - from 28.3.2020. The Link is - https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/anything-good-i-could-say-about-this-would-be-a-lie/ar-BB11RymK?li=BBoPU0R This may very well be what, sadly, unnecessarily, a lot of us will have to face in the near future. i.e. One of the Truths about Corona Virus and the worldwide failure to react to it..in time. Too Little.....TOO Late. ...........................................................................................................................................................................................................................
  13. Report post #3887 Posted 14 hours ago Halibut posted "But also dangerous, irresponsible, capricious, selfish and thick as two short planks." Aye, maybe so.....? And, the lucky old North Americans have this Cartoon Character for the Next 5 years too! Comedy GOLD.
  14. Hmmmm. Likely a case of "Teresa May" style publicity and propaganda...i.e. Make a show of things - after the Stable Door, Horse Bolted, Long ago....kind of thing. Wasn't she a Tory PM too? Hmmmmph. Becoming Quite clear now, as it was to many a good while back, that, with Coronavirus UK, pretty much most of what the Government has(n't) done is Far Too Little - Too Late. Tying up NHS resources you say? Interesting. What resources would they be then?
  15. Well said fella. Give this Man a Gong. Just wonder sometimes if anyone really is "listening, taking notice"....? Maybe so many sleep walking into Oblivion? Ni mind'eh?
