    It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. Aristotle
  2. The Good Karma Hospital. It’s the third series and I’ve enjoyed every one. It’s sad at times but the landscape it great. Makes you think of long hot summer days.
  3. It’s nice to see a few celebrities are making donations to the NHS to fight the coronavirus. All the money from The National Lottery should be donated to the NHS for the next year or so to fight this virus and put other good causes on hold for a while.
  4. That was funny. Moore was famous for modelling knit wear before he became an actor. No wonder Presley thought he belonged in Burton’s shop window.
  5. Will petrol stations remain open?
  6. Yes there was a cafe there, you are probably right.
  7. I remember my mum taking me in a cafe that was built of wood, it was on the corner of Snig Hill and Castle Street, just above where theThe Police Headquarters is now. They did a lovely instant all milk coffee and egg salad roll sandwich. Was it called, The New Stand Cafe? I remember going in one with that name but it could be somewhere else.
  8. The last I heard there was 10,000 deaths globally. Yes it’s still early days and more people will die but the way the world is behaving you would think it was millions who had died so far. How may people died from the Aids virus?
  9. Your DUCK IS DEAD A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away." The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?" "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet.. "How can you be so sure?" she protested.. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something." The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck." The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$1,500!" she cried,"$1,500 just to tell me my duck is dead!" The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $1,500."
  10. Just caught something on the news that the army has been brought in to support the police and medical workers, I think. Can’t see how it would work keeping people in their homes.
  11. My neighbour has just told me that he knows someone who is in the army and they have been put on standby for this Friday. He thinks the government is going to announce a total shutdown for 2 weeks, people are only going to be allowed out of their homes to buy essential food.
  12. A friend of mine told me she went to Curry’s PC World in Gateshead and the salesperson said there has been a big rise in freezer sales, especially chest freezers because of the coronavirus.
  13. President Trump has placed a ban on 26 Schengen counties because of the Coronavirus, he hasn’t included the UK in his ban. He must have faith in Boris and our medical experts.
  14. I also think Boris and the medical experts are doing there best and giving good advice. All they can do is review the situation from day to day.
