    isn't this like renting a house and then complaining that the neighbours have sold theirs because they actually bought theirs.  All 3 of their grounds are owned by the council, 2 of them used to own them previously.  Independent valuation was used.

    Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites just went directly overhead this evening. There will be a better showing tomorrow at around 9pm our time. You’ll be able to see around 50 sequentially going over head quickly.

    If you follow the below link and give it your location it’ll show you directly when and where. Also handy for other satellites. This link will take you directly to the Starlink sightings.

    Saw a few tonight but were more spaced out and fainter than anticipated.

    Can somebody explain something I'm confused about.

    I have read and watched a LOT about this including countless interviews with medical experts across every spectrum.
    And being married to a doctor who is now working with Covid patients twice per week we talk about it a lot too.
    The only place I hear herd immunity mentioned is here.
    Everything I have read and heard says that they simply don't know whether immunity even works yet.
    And that even is it does it could be like the flu and only last for 3, 6 or 9 months.
    So how could we be aiming for herd immunity when immunity itself may not even exist?

    Thought I would paste the english version.  So much for the clapping for the health service!  Hopefully just odd events but living here I have to say I'm not overly surprised that some idiots have reacted like this

    defenders and goalies had much more protection.  Offside rule favoured defences, defenders could assault attackers as long as they did so after 3 pm, goalies could pick up any time and as far as they were concerned it was a no contact sport.

    well said, I used to think brits had a back bone, fook me its not like any of us have had anything like Terry Waite had to put up with.  Can't go out unless it is essential, only allowed out once a day for exercise, ran out of things to watch on multiple platforms, can't shop in pairs the list of deprivation is endless.  Can see that the govt will be raising a windfall tax on therapists

    Think about those on the 'vulnerable' list. We have 12 weeks of this, and my guess is that any relaxation of the confinement conditions won't apply to us. In fact, my guess is that I will be 'confined to barracks' for 26 weeks at least, and perhaps as much as a year. The problem there is that will apply to the Memsahib as well.

    Bit more historic here, still go to a clinic every 5 or so weeks.  Luckily my results are very consistent not changed in more than 20 years

    Me anorl. 
    I self test, then email the results through, get my dosage back the same morning.
    There is an alternative which requires no dosing or testing, but it's not suitable for everyone.

    Me too.  Warfarin is not a bad drug if you have to be on something for life.  As testing for this type of deficiency  is not routine the true number of people dying from clotting disorder is likely to be far greater than it should be.  It is more than likely that this genetic oddity is only discovered post mortem.  I am gUessing they tested for protein c deficiency?  Sorry to hear about your sisters.

    Ryannair have been pushing the no charge re book option but surprisingly the flights later in the year all appear to be double the price.  O’Leary never misses a trick, bamford.  Anyway I re seis ted the generous offer and now they have moved to offering refunds and I have snapped their hands off.  That’s now 8 flights and 5 hotels where I have got full refunds.  Best savings plan I have ever had!

    Thanks for your kind comment!
    4 of my staff, my wife and I had what we all put down to flu in January.  Key issues were a fever and shortness of breath.  Knocked us all out for 48 hours.  Ordinary flu symptoms at either end.  We all had flu jabs in November.  No idea as to whether it was a weaker version of cv19 but I have not discounted it.
