    For the remaining aft-noon and some eventide methinks I'll repair to yon holiday estate (my garage), conjure mystic victuals (grill some chicken), partake of the product of wort and yeast (drink some beer), craft original organic art (sand a tabletop), and view top-flight entertainment (watch 30 rock and youtube).

    It's going to be fun


    bye

    Two nice stories for you:

    The first concerns a 99 year old veteran, who walks with the aid of a frame, decided to raise money for the health service charity in England. His goal was to do 100 laps of his garden (each about 25 metres) before his 100th birthday, and to raise £1000. Did he make it? Oh, yes. Completed the 100 laps before his birthday. Did he raise £1000? Well, no; he raised £14 million and counting!!

    The other is about what the street artist Banksy gets up to when he's in lockdown.

    Enjoy and have a smile. Go on, you deserve it!

    In the not too distant future will we be speaking of COVID-19 in the past tense. Many of us will have been directly affected by the pandemic, but 99+ % of the world's population is still going to be alive. Like Neil said, keep on rocking in the free world.

    A break from the carnage. One of the few good things to come from this will be less vehicle accident death and injury
