  1. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8277273/Coronavirus-deaths-TWICE-high-poor-areas-England-Wales-Official-figures-show.html A map showing deaths in your postcode area (if you enter your postcode that is).
  2. I have loads of cook books on the kindle but have never looked at any of them. I am still working and not at home through the dayso cooking is out for me. Other half, who is working from home sorts the food out but doesn't use recipes as we are still eating what we did before. Our "cooking" is usually just slow cooked chilli, curry, stew or chicken/pork etc in the oven.

  4. Wakefield for all of my 51 years - 3 different houses all within 1/2 mile of each other. Spent 2-3 months in Northampton working at the library and coming home on the weekends.
  5. Yeah, love Nightingales. The older shows take me back, always liked Dukes of Hazzard as well.
  6. Been watching a fair bit of Forces TV recently. Dukes of hazzard, Robins Nest, Get Some In!, Tripper's Day, Nightingales, Miami Vice and others and also military documentaries.
  7. Gonna have to be conference parties for a while I think. Zoom, skype etc.
  8. This week I have popped into Aldi most evenings to see what is there and if there is anything I want. I don't "need" anything but would like to get some beans. Each time there has been none apart from 4 packs of Heinz for £2.99. Nah, I'm good until I can get some own brand. I was out this morning to take cards round to my mum. I did keep my distance, but when I said I was going to ASDA she asked for some stuff. So I go down to ASDA and get her 2x beef joints & some wash capsules. Me, I got 6x tomatoes and some mushrooms. No beans at all. They were low on a lot of stuff. On the way back home, I went to Sainsburys Local and got nothing again. I was only after some sandwich meat and basmati rice. No rice and the meat was very expensive - 3 slices of beef for £1.95 - I should have got a joint of beef for myself as well. I also went to the Eastern European shop across the road. Nicely stocked but didn't have what I wanted. And I will say that I keep forgetting to look for beans - I will look in the shop opposite work tomorrow. I expect a full closure of non essential business by the end of the week.
  9. A video from the US. The first store had a limit of 1 of any item i.e. 1 tin of beans, 1 tin of soup. So it isn't just over here that it is happening. Later in the video they go to Walmart and there is a queue going around 10-12 aisles that is just for toilet paper.
  10. Can't fathom (pun kind of intended) what it would be like living in an area prone to flooding. When you see it on TV and everything is ruined, and most probably won't be covered by insurance it must be horrendous for them. And then knowing that during or possibly shortly after repairs are made, it will happen again. Where I am in Wakefield, if my street were to be flooded to the extent of these floods, half of Flanshaw estate, half of Peacock estate and all of Darnley/Lower Westgate would be totally under water. We are near the top of the high ground in our area and the nearest flood source are a couple of becks which are both about 1/2 mile away and a good deal lower than we are. It would have to be some biblical flooding though as we are about 50ft higher than the becks (according to this site - https://www.freemaptools.com/elevation-finder.htm).
  11. It does make sense. I have a few emails addresses I can use to re-join if needed.
