Re: Coronavirus

It is very interesting how different countries are tackling the crisis. Read about the Dutch approach today for example https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52135814 All along , I suspect that the tacticians, advising the government ,are playing the populace in a grim "game" of managing...

Re: Coronavirus

Not neat bleach , swill the mask in a mild solution of bleach and warm water. Then rinse in warm clean water then leave to dry. Will be quite safe

Forgot to say, take it off before you go to sleep

Re: Coronavirus

Yes they do still do seafood? Still very photogenic. Council still doing dubious things. For example rather than maintain the North cliff iconic lift they gave it away. My grandfather campaigned to have the lift. There isnt aswimming pool either anymore apart from the one within Alpamarle which is o...

Re: Coronavirus

I have just been into Scarborough for essential food shopping. Saw God in one street. The police were quickly on him asking what he was doing. Working from home was the reply.

Re: Coronavirus

Sound's like last year, same pattern, Feb 2019/20 both lovely followed by cold and miserable weather during April, last Easter turned out to be a dead loss. The weather is expected to be good this weekend both here in the North of Spain and in the UK. I was going over on Saturday. My wife tells me ...

Re: Repair Shops Closed

suspected that might be the case. Push it down the road past the "home limit".

I would apply common sense to the situation. Problem will be the repairman getting parts.

Re: Coronavirus

My dad is also 93. Stable but much reduced ability after heart failure. Get your SIL to contact the local Covid 19 support group. If she hasn't had a leaflet, google for the locality. They only get a max of £30 of shopping or medicines but better than nothing. If you have cooking facilities you can ...

Re: Repair Shops Closed

Mobile mechanic if you think it is an easy fix?

Our 4x4 split a hose last week. Quite a serious issue for OH. If it was our only car we could have got someone to come and do a fix (assuming they could get the hose).

Re: Coronavirus

Day 28 in exile (in England) Last night I was awoken by a tremendous noise. It turned out to be young Fangio in a supermarket delivery van rounding the corner with the side door open. Do not know if they got delivered or not. A bottle of wine did not. Stayed up till gone midnight to see if new deliv...

Re: Coronavirus

Maybe, when this is over we might come to a better idea of how we want to go forward into the future and that might include not eating animals. As most of you know in my occasional rants I never buy anything Made in China if I can possibly, possibly help it. Maybe countries should crank up their in...

Re: Coronavirus

I have been limiting exposure to one corner shop and just getting stuff to get by for a week. I certainly wouldnt do several supermarkets nice though it might be. In fact it is less than ideal. Why take the risk?

Re: Coronavirus

I think the point I was making about China closing its border was lost. In simple terms they are coming out of the worst but now stopping anyone coming in.

Therefore I suspect we can see countries closer to home doing the same. In other words closing their borders even to nationals.

Both posts made today so far timed out.

Re: Spanish Postal Service

It would be very useful if someone can clarify what this actually means please? We are currently sending essential parcels only via Correos. I am waiting for an Amazon delivery which I will then send to OH in Spain via Royal Mail/ Correos. Works well apart from the daily collection at a specified ti...
