When it comes to advice on medical matters, I'll go with the (medical) doctors - not politicians, present or has-been!



Merry Xmas

Yes, you can’t argue with the medical experts, despite what some might think.

That, I'm afraid, is not true!

Immediately prior to my operation, the anaesthetist insisted that I took some medication that I had stopped taking some weeks previously. I objected, but allowed her to overrule me.

Result was that the medication slowed my heart rate down so much that, firstly, they were unable to prep me for the operation, and then they had to stabilise me during the operation. At that point, the surgeon decided that it would not be a wise move to complete the operation, and as consequence, I will require further surgery next year to finish off a task that could have have been done back in August.

The anaesthetist acknowledged after the operation that she had been wrong.

It's always the anaesthetist - beware of them! My late wife twice had problems caused by them! The second time, the needle had been wrongly placed in her spine; she sat up when she came round & promptly went blind. The anaesthetist was immediately summonsed but it was Friday afternoon & he was about to go home, said he'd deal with it on Monday!!¬

"Oh no won't" said a very stern ward sister & she made him deal with it then & there.

Sure you're right! Last summer, for my birthday, I had to use one. When he told me prior to the injection "think about something nice" I told him laughing "Oh yes, are you aware that the surgeon has sex with your wife?" In good French, vous êtes cocu!

Unsurprisingly, CSCC's planned pre-season trackday at Donington on February 16th has been cancelled.......given that the current "stay at home" lockdown is only due to be reviewed the day before, the likellihood and indeed wisdom of people converging from all over the country has been looking unlikely for a while.....


I'm a bit sceptical about whether the season opener at end of March will happen, either.....but I haven't cancelled my Premier Inn booking for the Oulton round on April 10th, yet

I've not bothered renewing my license or booking a medical yet, far too many uncontrollable factors in the way. I can't see anyone going to Europe to Race at least until we're vaccinated. That won't happen for many of us until high summer at the earliest. We're holding back on booking ferries in June just to go on a scooter rally in Brittany at the moment . .

Et d'abord par chez nous, on dit "Bretagne", Monsieur Joe! Will you play guitar too? In French, "jouer de la gratte"?

ne joue pas de basse, just good music, friends, food and drink and travel by Lambretta

The 'mess my mind' festival will happen again, but I don't know when, maybe 2022 ?

I still have a Chunnel ticket for car and trailer which is currently dated for the same weekend as the MM at Goodwood. I may change that to later in the year. I've also got my reservation for Le Mans in June which was held over from last year.

The Times today is warning that any travel into the EU is likely to be virtually banned until infection rates in UK (especially that called the British strain - so named because our genomics testing is the one that was early to identify it ) are markedly lower.........


The trip to join my Dutch Imp enthusiast friends in May, deferred from last year, has already been cancelled, so I now have to see if I can rebook my Stena tickets again, although if we are banned from travelling I guess they'll have to allow it Maybe the Alfa club (SCARB) will be able to run Spettacolo Sportivo at Zandvoort in September, again - I'd be up for revisiting that

Normally about now I'd be planning my marshalling season. Even before I start looking at it some meetings have changed or been cancelled, so I can't see the point. Add to that uncertainty as to whether I can take a caravan meaning two day meetings at many venues are possibly unrealistic, I shall wait until:

a) I think I'm prepared to go to a meeting anywhere and
b) I'm reasonably sure what meetings will go on.

There are all sorts of rumours flying about concerning the major races.
If these are put back to third quarter it’s pretty certain the large historics will go back or not happen
Pragmatic view

With Glastonbury cancelled already, it's hard to see how any of our mass racing events can plan with any certainty.

Last year nothing re-started until the end of May, why should 2021 be any different?
