Harking back to last year Delta, did you manage to take a dip in the sea whilst in Cornwall, with this very warm weather?

I was honoured to be able to wish Max Happy Birthday in person as we had an excellent lunch down in Wiltshire. A close-run thing as I only cleared last night's thick head with 10 minutes to spare before we had to drive there.
HNY to the rest of you, I've just toasted Mike upstairs with a fine Armagnac and am now about to tackle the second half of the excellent Steve Nichols interview on youtube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDE2XzqGV6s
If you haven't seen it I commend it to you.
Looking forwards I hope to sell my blue modsports Midget (see racecarsdirect) very soon although the market seems a bit dead - there's a monkey waiting for anyone finding me a buyer !

A belated Happy New Year to all! And also to Max for the birthday.

As has been said, let's hope for an improved year in 2022, although it's looking like we're still some way away from things returning to 'normal'.

Dare I say... maybe it's time to accept that this thing's going to be around for a while yet, in one form or another, and that maybe we've just got to adapt to a new 'normal' and start getting on with our lives whilst remaining vigilant when appropriate?

Heresy! Burn the Witch!



Or, maybe, lets keep being careful but get on with it?

Well done on braving the icy waters Iain. The local paper this morning is full of pics of New Year's Day swimmers having a good day in Dunkerque yesterday.

Thanks for the wishes everyone, it was a great day with good friends.

The Sunday Times appears to be leading the "it's the beginning of the end" charge ATM and it does feel like they're right. Although I know many more people that are ill this time round, they all seem to be suffering more from the incarceration than the disease and long may that remain.

Having said that, I don't particularly want to catch it and so am pleased the majority of my face to face contact is outdoors. Especially as since yesterday I'm now in an "at risk" category Thankfully it appears the scientists around the world were further advanced in their planning than the politicos, the vaccine roll out must rank as one of the defining moments of our time. If things *are* returning to normality I think we'll have been very lucky to lose 2 or 3 years, I was expecting upwards of five.

Hopefully we can now put "the war" behind us and talk about "the pandemic" as our point of reference. I look forwards to watching "The World at Sickness," "Foyle's Pandemic" and even "Dad's Nurses" in due course.

Crumbs, did someone give a sense of humour for your birthday Max?

Congratulations on making it this far, it only gets.........?

But "Dad's Nurses" would just be the odd socially-distanced and heavily PPE'd figure, wouldn't it? Not quite the same as "Carry on Matron"

My story board has it set in a volunteer-staffed vaccination centre. The group leader is an ageing ex-army buffoon who means well but couldn't organise a p-up in a brewery. The hero who does all the work is a tall, suave, fifty -something (sorry, 60-something) chap who makes it all happen out of the limelight. There's one excitable bloke who runs around with a needle proclaiming that the viruses are beaten now because "they don't like it up 'em". When we - sorry, they - run out of PPE, vaccine or testing kits the shady one with a 'tache can get hold of whatever's needed for a price.

No, you're right, it'll never catch on. It's stupid, boy.
