Good grief, and supplies of facepalm are running critically low as it is.

In other news, I've had two second-hand reports that UK television has been reporting that life in Japan is somehow running as normal - rest assured it isn't, schools as well as "public gathering places" have been closed since the start of March, tourism is dead, restaurants etc. are very empty and people are being very circumspect. The cherry blossom season (basically a massive excuse to hang out in dense throngs in parks) is verboten.

Thank goodness I read that again, initially I thought you had said: "basically a massive excuse to hang out in dense thongs in parks".

Only place I can find that is still doing deliveries sanely is our milkman. Fingers crossed they'll fulfill our slightly updated order to include some butter and other stuff (they've branched out a lot in what they sell since the 1970s). Will find out in the morning.

Oh dear. Now I have a rather unsavoury image of thick thongs in my mind.  :o

Thongs for the memory, guys.

Yesterdays happy hiatus has passed. This evening I am Mr Angry once again.

Some Tesco staff I met encountered today not social distancing.

Many shoppers in  Tesco Lincoln also failing to act with any sense of safety or regard for others.

Morons continuing to treat the situation as a holiday, with hundreds going to the Peak District (as an example) to walk the hills and moors.

 An Edale (Peak District) Farmer disinfecting his gates due to yesterday’s hoards passing through, challenged one of the above and told him to go home. For this he was punched up to 15 times!

Today a 21 year old in England died. She had no pre-existing condition.

FOR GODS SAKE! WHEN WILL EVERYONE WAKE UP AND GET THE MESSAGE? THIS IS A LIFE AND DEATH SITUATION WE ARE IN. MORE THAN 20,000 PEOPLE HAVE DIED. MANY, MANY MORE WILL JOIN THEM. STAY AT HOME!

End of rant. I can’t say I feel better for it.

Time for a rum and coke I think.

And I’m supposedly teetotal!

I do hope that you were NOT referring to the attire of the young lady in the photo? "Julia, Gerald's chum with whom he writes poems"  :beers:

BBC!

Misleading headline published on the website today saying “all cats should be kept indoors”.

Vets association advice is ONLY those from households with people showing symptoms should TRY to keep cats in IF SAFE and possible.

Headline since changed, but I am sorry but in a country where idiots are burning 5G masts how many cats could suffer because of this?

I am worried about my two now, I would be heartbroken if somebody did something to them  :(

 This may explain a local shortage of cat litter. Shelfs of my local Lidl and Asda are empty

No, that's because most cat litter is made from "Fullers Earth", which is an excellent decontaminent for fallout should there be a nuclear war, allegedly. :D

A couple of days ago I heard a zookeeper in the USA had infected a tiger and cubs with Covid-19.
Do we therefore act as the loonies against pets?
Face it, we can't trust the brainless gits to stop clumping together. There's just no hope for us when so many villages are missing their idiots.

Re possible retaliation against pets.....

By the application of some diabolical logic it follows that as people are evidently responsible for transmitting the virus to other people, the idiot fringe will soon be picking on...... themselves! :o

Or you and me. :uneasy:

perhaps time to remove all heath and safety labels / signs.

those with no brain cells will die, and a stronger gene pool go forward.

only joking, probably  :hmmm: :)
