I'm sure it's not that people think you are helpless Stanley, more that all over 70s have been asked to stay at home and not go shopping!

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I've just looked at the average number of deaths in the UK for week 12 over the last 5 years and it is approximately 10,500 people. It helps to put things in some sort of perspective.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I had a chat (at the required distance) with a friend of mine who is 99% certain that she has had the virus, probably brought back from a skiing holiday. She says that she had the fever and dry cough, nothing too bad but she is just drained of energy and it was quite a shock to see one of the health...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I had to venture out to the chemist in Earby yesterday as I had a prescription from my ophthalmologist for some different (preservative free) eýe drops. Like you Maz it was only one person in at a time and you are restrained by a barrier just inside the door. They didn't have the drops so I have to ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Glad you like it China. We are on Teddy Carr's Drive there, which was a private road from Teddy Carr's house 'Accornlea' in Foulridge to his shooting lodge on Kelbrook Moor. There is a gun club at the shooting lodge now, mercifully silenced for the duration! We are just about to turn right onto Cob ...

A bit close to home for me that story. :laugh5: I have never been put in the boot but have been squeezed into corners and shoved in the back unable to move because of some large and dangerous item filling most of the car.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

It was bitterly cold Maz! There were some sheltered places where we felt the warmth of the sun, but not many. I felt vaguely guilty about being out in the countryside even though we were on one of our regular circular routes from home. We only met a handful of people all of whom maintained at least ...

We had a lovely walk around Kelbrook Moor yesterday morning. I thought I'd share this view of Pendle with those of you not able to access our beautiful countryside. :smile:

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

No Maz, they have identified 1.5 million people who are seriously at risk and they have been told to isolate for 12 weeks. Help is being offered to those who do not have anyone to look after their needs and this is being done through community hubs. If necessary they will get food parcels to help.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Are you on the list of the most vulnerable to be shielded for 12 weeks? Only those people are being offered a food parcel. The rest of us get a letter, hopefully Boris hasn't licked the envelopes. :laugh5:

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Not much of a story Cathy I'm afraid, they were my mum's but she never made butter! She had a phase of going to antique fairs and I think she probably bought them at that time. She also went through a phase of doing pyrography and they have a flower design on the back. I knew they might come in usef...

Stacking yet more wood and making butter. I decided (after watching YouTube videos) to use the mixer which worked well but created a lot of washing up! Started wìth a glass of wine, which Colin removed from me forcibly fearing it could get spilt. Half a litre of cream converted to 2 blocks of yummy ...

Aren't you allowed out just for a walk Sue? There is lots of online advice on making butter in a mixer or with an electric whisk but we don't have anything sophisticated enough to run at a slow speed towards the end.....could get the kitchen decorated in buttermilk! We should be able to make our yog...

My neighbour is picking up some double cream from a friends dairy today and is bringing me a 2 litre bottle. We get through a lot of cream but not quite that much! I fancy having a go at making butter, watch this space.....
