Who knows if we’re going to be around when they ripen?
Vast amounts of information and misinformation abounding.
You have to average out the news and make a “best guess”.
Would like to share with you though a couple of youtube channels that might be of interest. Instead of the channels I’ll share couple of recent videos and you can decide for yourselves whether to subscribe or not.
This channel is a Junior Doctor working in an A&E department.
This guy is a nurse-teaching chap PhD for whom I know not the correct honorific.
Thanks be to our great and glorious Canal & River Trust Executive who are encouraging the world and its hamster to come on down to the canals (effectively “my” garden and a LOT less than the recommended six feet/two metres separation) and do strenuous things such as cycling, jogging and walking-when-the-farthest-you-ordinarily-walk-is-from-television-to-refreigerator-to-toilet – and all of the breathing down my neck that this entails, the foot traffic past the Cardinal has increased several fold even in this quiet spot.
The highlight of today was a gentleman who paused about eighteen inches away from my “study” window to enthusiastically and comprehensively empty his nose into an incredibly old, worn and discoloured cotton handkerchief, then have a little coughing fit and stagger on. Folk think I’m a wuss to wear a layer of hand sanitiser – when I can get any – when handling ropes and the boat in general…
Thanks, Corporate C&RT, if I ever get the chance – if I can ever engineer the chance – to return the favour, rest assured.
Never seen so many obvious non-walkers staggering and tottering (and wheezing) along the towpath with unfamiliar dogs in similar states of physical decay, all sans poo-bags and all not quite savvy that people live on these boats and they are being watched as they ignore Bonzer’s freshly squeezed shit-pile or try half-heartedly to kick it into the canal or hedgerow.
Anyway. Whatever as the yoof of tudday say.
Hope that these are of some interest and/or help.
Keep buggering on.
Please leave any useful links in the comments. If the spam filter cusses at you then separate them and use “dot” for “.” or something, and I’ll edit them into meaningful links asap.
