The top earners in my daughter’s company were heading off to Arizona for a week’s jolly in April but it’s just been cancelled due to You Know What.

Things are heating up.
It’s just an excuse to get out of paying for it. ;)
It’s also about carbon footprint daaaahhhling. :lol:

Well it would seem that I have a light cold.

So Tracie has donned a hazmat suit and gone down to Carrefour to buy 350 rolls of bog paper. And I have just painted a large red cross on our door.

It's been nice knowing you all...

Most media outlets seem full of doom porn. The resultant disruption is likely to cause more damage than the disease.

My view. Wash you hands frequently, don't eat or drink in public places, wash your hands frequently, avoid snogging people, wash your hands frequently, and avoid sticking your fingers up your nose or in your gob, and wash your hands frequently. Oh, and wash your hands frequently.

Other than that, carry on as usual.

In other news....Screwfix is felling only 5 facemasks at time and has a polite notice pointing out that they are to protect workers from hazardous dusts and not for snowflakes to show off in (I made that last bit up). Oh, and it looked like there had been a minor riot in the bog-paper section at Lidl in Launceston.

Cheers Gary. I caught my mildest sneeze from Tracie, who had the tickly cough strain last week. Which means that we have moved from the containment phase on to 'delay', and then 'plague'. Basically our house now has a full blown Pan's People Epic Bell-Endemic, and we are truly doomed.
