I'm signed up for petrol price alerts, and have noticed that since Christmas the price of unleaded has been slowly creeping upwards, and is now about 6 pence more a litre than it was, after the price had remained static for many weeks.

Being a curious soul, I googled why the price was rising as world prospects in the immediate future don't look all that rosy due to the pandemic, although things are bound to improve during the summer in the northern hemisphere. According to a number of websites, it would appear that many dealers and hedge funds have become very bullish about the future, and have therefore been buying forward vast quantities of oil and derivatives, thereby pushing up the price.

As these people, when they do something like this in tandem, rarely get it wrong, seem to be optimistic about the future, one must be encouraged that we may be able to turn the corner fairly shortly.

For Bauble, re the jab.

According to Dr Phil Hammond, writing in the latest issue of Private Eye, he was given his vaccination at work in his hospital. He experienced mild side effects which he states is a good sign that the immune system has responded to the vaccine. However, his and his colleagues' side effects all passed within 48 hours; the side effects tended to be worse for those that had already had Covid-19.

One jab or two so far?

I have seen a US medic suggest the responses to his second jab were more noticeable than the first, though not especially significant for a person of his age (about 40 I would estimate.)

I get the distinct impression that it was his first vaccination, Grant.

Good news from the Midgetman household. The current Mrs MM works with a dementia charity, and because she regularly visits "vulnerable" people is booked in for vaccination on Saturday Neither of us are anywhere near 80 let me add
