    Donald J Trump

    "Voters who believe enough fraud took place at the presidential election to change the outcome" No mention there of people who supported the attacks. If that was the pool, I would expect it to be nearer 100%.

    That last one seems spurious. 56% of ALL voters believe Trump's claims of election fraud? Come on. That makes me doubt all those figures.

    There's nearly a whole year to go yet. My mother was dead within two weeks of a scan that showed her tumour shrunk to 20% of its size. Just saying.

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    Our surgery retweeted a comment from some doctor about mental health recommending people to "speak to their GP" which I thought was a bit rich given that that's almost impossible. So I replied to them giving the example of my neighbour as mentioned above. They replied that he should "ask for an earlier appointment". Words fail me, really.

    It was police who opened the gates and let them in.

    It was all worth it for the Jamiroquai post though.

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    I'm not a desperate little globule of semen, but this is a pretty good round-up. It explains the discrepancy between the figures being quoted in various places. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-55488724

    TWO guesses, seriously? That's generous

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    What's happening then, is it all telephone appointments? My neighbour wanted some strong painkillers, the pharmacist wouldn't let him have any until he (the neighbour) had spoken to a doctor. He had to book a telephone consultation and he was told the earliest date was nearly a month away. Allegedly.

    Not enough people to give them, at a guess. For myself, I'd turn up any time they told me to. I suppose it would be difficult for a lot of people, transport etc.

    Recipients of Military Awards

    Agree. We don't need umpteen threads about people who have served in the armed forces. It's not like, say, actors or musicians where there are many different genres to cover. The more threads there are, the more difficult it becomes to find them and the more likely it is that people will post in the "wrong" ones.

    Room 101

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    Dr John Campbell's video today reports a survey of over 11,000 health workers who tested positive back in March/April and none of them had been reinfected by the second wave on October/November. Not one. So it does look as though immunity lasts for at least six months.

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    I've been filling in the Covid Zoe symptom tracker app daily. I did feel a bit off colour last week, nothing major and no typical symptoms, but ticked off the symptoms as required and to my surprise they asked me to take a test. Which I did and it was negative which I expected. They must be generating a hell of a lot of tests and some of them are bound to come up positive, even if it's just general malaise or fatigue being reported.

    The risk was fairly low as at garden centres most of the premises are in the open air. I'd have had no objection to them closing off the non-essential parts inside, like the gift departments and other tat.

    I think I'll give this a miss, thanks.

    The Roaring Twenties

    Ezra Furman at the Kentish Town Forum in November. It had been a while so was itching to go to a gig and while I don't usually bother with tribute bands, we were poised to see The Doors Alive when everything fell apart. The venue obstinately refused to cancel the gig and people were worried about going, and angry about not getting refunds if they didn't go. It was settled by the band cancelling, but it did leave a nasty taste.

    It's not all flowers and pot plants, although I agree some garden centres sell a lot of stuff that have nothing to do with gardening. But that's the same with supermarkets, hardware shops etc - they all carry non-essentials too. We were really pissed off about garden centres having to close back in the spring. It was just the time when you start planting stuff, and we struggled to get seeds, compost and all sorts of other bits and bobs that are necessary. Gardening should have been encouraged as it's healthy exercise, it gave people an interest and something to do during the big lockdown, and importantly, grow your own vegetables and fruit.

    I think a lot of these people have notability from holding some sort of public office or being presidents of charities, that kind of thing.

    Me too. Hoping the BST Hyde Park festival goes ahead in July, as have booked for Duran Duran, Chic and Grace Jones. Should be a fun day if it comes off.

    That won't matter in a country where the Rolling Stones are accused of being "unAmerican".

    Ah sorry, I see you did have him listed. I must have somehow read the two Michaels as one.
