Added my 2 pennyworth. Got a receipt and a transaction number, does that mean everything has gone through OK? I use my card so infrequently these days that I forget the address at which it is registered!

On a general point, considering the mileage, I am as fit as anyone my age can reasonably expect to be. It's age that is the problem and if you are above the government age limit for treatment Gott helfe mir may be your best option although I don't believe it will! So keep yourself safe. More bleach...

Thanks, Tiz. I'll just keep an open mind whilst the blame game is running. Who knows what caused it? I'm in a country in which I want to remain so I dare not say anything controversial and you know that isn't like me! :extrawink:

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I went into the local KFC yesterday and sat down waiting for my meal.

"Why? Am I likely to get infected with Covid in here?" I said.

"No" she replied "because you're bloody ugly."
