RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

What you have to realise about India, and a lot of other countries including China, there are many many people whos births, marriages, and deaths are not registered, because of this the quoted figures will be 'official' figures, they don't/won't count those people who do not exist on official documentation, also many of these countries also have many 'ethnic' groups within who do not have 'official' status, so again they are not counted in any figures.

Its only now that I personally have family who are affected, young people <50, normally fit and healthy, working population, who have worn masks through out, have been vaccinated, yet have still caught it.

I know of people who believed they had hayfever, symptoms similar, only to test positive.

I just try to maintain a distance from everyone... i'm not being anti-social, I don't trust the public, they have no common sense to follow guidelines, add to that hot sunny weather and alcohol, its going to get a lot worse before it gets better, too many conspiracy theorists, blatantly ignoring scientific fact!

RE: I thought car insurance was supposed to be cheaper this year?

strangely this just popped up again a year after I last posted about how good Admiral were... 

Well this years renewal quote was £210 a jump of nearly £50, i did a quick Meerkat and other searches, and could get at just under the £200, rang Admiral, and they instantly matched it, so whilst its gone up a few quid since last year i'm still pretty happy at that price, i know some friends who have older cars, same age, but because of where they live are 4 times this!

RE: [VIDEO] Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

RE: Euros 2021 (Men's)

Alphabetically... if that makes you top of the league

RE: Euros 2021 (Men's)

England only saved by Adams and Robertson forgetting to pack their shooting boots... 

Scotland had all the passion, England performance was as if they set out for a draw... 

I truly hope Scotland win their last match, and if England don't get the point they need, they have only themselves to blame

"I remember that one about the man turning into a bee...

Did you ever watch Armchair Thriller?"

The Bee one scared me as a child, a bit like The Fly

Don't remember Armchair Thriller... but now going to have to watch.

Have recently also been watching the Terry McCann series of Minder

well lets hope this oxygen thief doesn't become a victim of something he thinks is a hoax... as clearly he wouldn't want the vaccine?

RE: Euros 2021 (Men's)

If Adams and Robertson had packed their shooting boots, it would have been a very different result

RE: Tinker Taylor

RE: The Bitcoin millionaire who accidentally lost it all

RE: Easter Day

unfortunately busy working... 

RE: Easter Day

Hope it all went well...

Not had a drink (alcohol) since New Year

RE: Vaccines Part 2

think i was lucky, just two days feeling lethargic...

Hopefully second jab in next 6 to 8 weeks?

I am told that it will be available to all from July onwards, so kids/teenagers should be able to get it.

What's the future, who knows, I suspect we will end up being able to have an annual jab like the Flu, all viruses mutate, hence that they don't protect forever.

On the whole I think the Govt/development companies/NHS have done a brilliant job getting us to this stage so quickly...

I hope that in future we are as determined quick to develop medicines for other diseases

RE: JustGiving appeal for firebombed Royal Marine veteran...

RE: Need Suggestion

my suggestion is you take your tin of cured pork meat, and shove it where the sun doesn't shine!

RE: [VIDEO] Smile thread

Sky Arts had 90 minute documentary on Banksy and the whole street-art scene this last week, was really interesting watching.

RE: Honey I'm Home

Good news that its been caught and that they have treatment in place, i hope you have a swift recovery.

These things do remind us, perhaps to not lose sight of the important things in life, our friends and families, and actually we need to get that balance of life and work right.

The mother-in-law had one back in 2003, wasn't quite so lucky, lost her speech, and use of right arm, and has limited mobility, but she has a quality of life, and my 2 daughters have never known her any other way, so have no problems understanding, communicating with her.

RE: [VIDEO] Wandavision (and others)

wife was watching this with the two daughters lunchtime today... awful just awful

RE: Cheap energy suppliers

went through similar choices recently, having been with EON pretty much since owning a house 28 years (with the exception of a year with EDF... never gain atrocious customer service)... we have now gone to Shell Energy, they were by far the cheapest fixed price choice (gas & electricity) based on last years actual kwh usage, and all there energy is 'green'.
