    Default Interesting things to know and Bravo to the Spanish and Italians.

    I feel quite humbled by the support shown for their country in these difficult times..

    Good advice but some of it is geared to the UK only, but generally applicable anywhere.

    Some clear explanation..

    This is quite interesting..

    OK, the main thing that prompted me to post was the way the Spanish and Italians are showing solidarity and strong spirit.


    I'm happy for a moderator to delete the post or lock it down. The last thing I want is to encourage people to speculate on the virus, issue quack home remedies, or just bitch about why their government is handling the situation badly and arguing about what they should be doing.

    If you want to bitch and moan, just use the subscription service threads.. ;-)

    I hope everyone comes through the next few months safe and well - I expect almost all - hopefully all - of us to do so.

    We need to express ourselves and our fears and our anger.

    things could always be worse....

    yes, I know we brits are supposed to be stoic, and 'appen us yorkies more so.. but there is so much unhelpful hot air around, often I think conceptualised by those who have never actually seen a real disaster, let alone been in one, but think they can 'put themselves in that position' by the power of thought alone..

    so, good posts Paul, thank you

    always keep things in perspective, and....

    Let's hope the "children" don't think it's a dress rehearsal for the Zombie Apocalypse.

    In Canada, measures being taken are changing rapidly, with events, school and gatherings being cancelled, being advised to stay home, etc.

    I got my hair cut on Thursday (desperately overdue), worried that the barber would likely shutdown. Think of the close contact with many clients daily and the potential to quickly spread a virus. While there, a client mentioned long lines at a big box store, Costco.

    On Friday, my wife and I decided to stock up with food to be able to limit going out for the next few weeks and in case of being quarantined. The street to Costco was packed, so we gave up trying to even get to the parking lot.

    We went to other stores, including Canadian Tire, Walmart for food, another supermarket for more food, and a couple of pharmacies. There was no toilet paper to be had anywhere, and of course, no Purell.

    So, if you have not done so yet and can, stock up on toilet paper.

    For Acorn, about the Zombie Apocalypse "...send more cops."

    apparently the UK is a major exporter of toilet paper - so we are unlikely to run out, but you may - I do not even know what purell is - ok i do now I looked it up [it's as i suspected...]

    not much happening here in deepest ERY I have yet to see a face mask on the street outside of the city, but i did see someone with a scarf wrapped tight over their face

    I believe further north in Newcastle they use neat alcohol on bare skin. Oh sorry, that just a normal Saturday night.
