Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We haven’t been to a wedding in over 20 years. No-one is getting married any more it seems. Of our 4 combined children only one ever got married and the other three are all over 40 now. Times they are a-changing. I don’t expect anyone will be doing “Christmas in July” this year either. Morning all ...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

See THIS report on testing waste water. Sounds like common sense to me..... I see this refers to the Netherlands as did the article I put on. This is an interesting article, I must discuss it with my daughter. Monitoring Waste water treatment plants is her main responsibility in her job with the En...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Morning Late today, I forgot to charge my ipad. What a horrendous day yesterday. If it was sunny the wind was wild but most of the afternoon it rained, smashing whats left of the flowers in the garden. More of the same all week this week, and cold! I am back into the clothes I wear in March. So due ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Sounds good Maz. I arranged family and friend get togethers here for both my 50th and 60th birthday celebrations which were both enjoyable but hard work and I can't face doing anything like that again! My brother and sister in law have suggested coming up to stay for a couple of days now restrictio...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Tiz, I don’t think the report I read was for Italy. I did a fair bit of research on it when my friend was panicking about catching it like food poisoning from workers in restaurants and contaminated food.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Do they look for the common cold or influenza in sewage? In the case of the common cold the virus is not excreted with faeces, flu can be, it depends on the strain. With Covid it is only a very very small percentage. In the article I read in March it was something like 2% and they said it was only ...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I saw the reports about testing sewage Tiz and thought it was a brilliant idea. It will show up there before any other method and give an advance warning. As you say, that and other methods aren't mutually exclusive and it is so cheap to do. It should be a default test like all the other tests wate...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

But WHY in that area? Is it wayward youths wandering the streets and refusing to stay home, a pub culture, small crowded households, small crowded shops? I don’t really understand. How is living in these areas contributing to the spread of disease? Pub culture, pubs aren’t open yet. All shops seem ...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

There is talk of a local lockdown in Rochdale, we are 4 th on the list but considerably lower than Leicester but too near the magic number. It seems the figures on June 21st are key but the numbers have dropped substantially this week . I put it on Rochdale facebook page, they took it off implying I...
