    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    My dentist told me that due to the extra costs involved at the minute with PPE etc they aren't doing NHS work apart from emergency extractions. If you pay to have it done privately then you are also paying for these additional costs as part of your treatment.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Especially if one member of a household was asymptomatic but on day 10 of the two week lockdown passed it on to another household member who also became asymptomatic. There's the danger that everyone would come out of the lockdown thinking it was over and then we'd see another spike. And that's...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Ah good point, I hadn't thought of that. It does seem that this whole not being political thing is a bit of a minefield.

    Shouldn't we already be back in lockdown?

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Is there anywhere you can view data on hospitalisation of patients by date? It seems pretty pointless to try to compare current cases against what we saw during the first wave as the total number of tests is far higher so there will be more positive test results. There must have been a lot a...

    Random irritations of the day......

    Have you got friends or family living in other parts of the country? There are stories in the papers and on websites about people using Aberdeen or Welsh postcodes to be able to book tests closer to home. One lady from East Anglia used a Welsh postcode (or possibly Bristol) and was able to book...

    Laughter - the best medicine

    I renewed my car insurance over the phone today and as I was about to hang up the woman on the other end asked if I had a pet. I said, "Yes, I've got a dog." She said, "Would you like to insure him too?" I said, "No thanks, he can't drive!"

    Anyone else have an issue with bears doing drug deals in their back garden? (Stolen from @MaidenSarah1 on Twitter)

    Laughter - the best medicine

    I saw a Spurs season ticket nailed to a tree. I thought, "I'm having that". After all, you can never have enough nails.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Apologies, should have been clearer. It's privately funded testing for a company that I'll be working for. I'm about to go offshore on a project and they require a negative test before we go. It's a company requirement for me to isolate between the test and joining the vessel. Had to travel from...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Checked in to a hotel this morning and then had to go for a Covid test. Should get the results some time after 1800 tomorrow. I have been told that I'm not allowed to leave my room between now and then. The only small problem with this is that the hotel my company have booked me in to doesn't...

    Random irritations of the day......

    Getting a phone call earlier this evening to say that my dad has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's at the age of 78. It wasn't a total shock as his financial/mathematical understanding has been declining over the past couple of years and this diagnosis helps explain why. The irritation is more...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    It seems as though there are tests available if you are willing to pay for them or have someone that will pay for you to take one. I'm going back offshore again next week and have been told that I have to be at a hotel on Tuesday morning to get tested. I'll then be isolating in the hotel until...

    Premier League 2020/21 Season

    This looks like an interesting signing for Everton. James Rodriguez for £20 million seems like a punt worth taking. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53992937

    Brexit - The negotiations.

    We'd definitely want to play on our pitch as we'd have the benefit of kicking downhill with the wind. Apparently the EU require a level playing field. (y)
