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 yesterdayís 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 canít say I feel better for it.

Time for a rum and coke I think.

And Iím 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:
