    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    To be fair, it is getting harder to hear words of wisdom from S Y-L as most other social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter etc. etc.) have banned him and his organisation for stirring up racial/religious hatred. I can’t imagine Centre Parcs wanting him back either after he...

    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    Any friend of mine who sent me a link to a video by that nasty little racist thug, would not be a friend for long!

    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    TeeDee, this lockdown could last weeks rather than months, if you have already got to the stage of watching Utube videos of Yaxley (Voice of Reason) Lennon and machetes for use in survival/self-defence situations, after just a few days, it is unlikely to end well. Now might be a good time to...

    Entry Level Machetes - Other Makes

    Might be worth having a look at what the arb community think of that idea! ;) https://arbtalk.co.uk/forums/topic/53863-clearing-brambles-with-chainsaw/

    Entry Level Machetes - Other Makes

    A machete is a great tool if you are cutting sugar cane etc. (machetes in some parts of the Caribbean are called Gilpins after the brand exported there, I guess that the original users didn’t get much choice in the tools they used) but as others have said, if you want to save your back and...

    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    According to the article! “The order doesn’t apply to those working in a military, emergency, health or infrastructure capacity, or persons involved in any commercial activity.”

    I can’t see them ever getting rid of the railway and cafe on Yr Wyddfa but there is growing pressure to get rid of the scruffy cafe on the top of PyF! :)

    I was under the impression that Texans’ response to Coronavirus was to sacrifice its elderly citizens on the altar of Mammon! ;) https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/03/24/covid-19-texas-official-suggests-elderly-willing-die-economy/2905990001/

    No need to apologise (least of all to a blow-in), I got pulled up on here a while ago for misspelling “pedant”! ;) PyF is closer to me these days and I am sad to say that its popularity means that have socially distanced myself from it for a while, but as you say, there are plenty of other...

    The only SnowdEn, that I know of (Edward), is IIRC, self-isolating in Moscow! ;) As for Yr Wyddfa, the message from the Visit Snowdonia website’s advice is “Don’t!”. https://www.visitsnowdonia.info/ Saw this on a local FB group :) As with all these places, if you are prepared to forego the...

    Coronavirus - Job opportunities for chippies etc?

    Was in two minds about posting this given the amount of nonsense circulating on social media (Mods please delete if you are not happy) but if genuine, this advert for workers to make pre-fab emergency hospitals might be of interest to anyone with the necessary skills at a loose end in Shropshire...

    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    I’m gutted, the new travel restrictions and cancellation of all marriage ceremonies etc. will probably mean that the gorgeous Russian lady that I have been corresponding with for the last few months will be unable to fly over for our wedding which I had planned for the summer. A real shame, I...
