Sorry Gordon. My sense of humour sometimes confuses people. The point being there are no animals so you can't complain at the way they treat the elephants.

Well, as long as you're healthy it sounds to be relatively low risk. But that said, you can always see them another time.

The main problem is that Sue caught flu at the end of January in Spain and was in bed for 4 days, we then flew home and she was in bed for more days and still isn't at her best at the moment. None of us are getting any younger and it makes you think what can happen.

May be you should stay away from living animals -elephants, koalas, etc…- and, important too, away from other people… Well, that's what we do here. Wish you a prompt recovery.

On that basis I would be disinclined to go anywhere near London unless unavoidable with or without the current concerns about COVID-19.

I escaped hospital last Friday just as the place was virtually locked down due to Norovirus. Only way to be completely safe is to find a desert island somewhere....

Mate sent me this ad for a ‘Lotus 20’ coming up for auction. https://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk/lotus/20/333259

Not like any of that type I’ve seen before!

RM's own pre-auction info lists it as a 1961 Epperly Indy car.

It ran in this guise at indy in 1962, in 1961 Bobby Marshman ran as 31, not sure if that was the same car though.
