Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 29

Yes, I have our car booked in for 4 new tyres on Wednesday! 2 are on the legal limit and a 3rd has a slow puncture.... not ideal for essential journeys with Police stopping cars!

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 29

Family over in Suffolk have had cv19 - one at the other end of it as another starts - but nothing too bad luckily. As people who like to plan things in advance and look forward to experiences all year long, this lack of knowing when we'll next see live music or go out to eat or take a trip abroad is...

Re: Covid 19 Lock down - UK Ambiguities?

Delivery drivers are considered important enough to keep working. Why not continue in business but move to using a collection delivery service? Schedule twice or thrice weekly collections and ensure customers know - blame the current situation but make reference to doing your best and staying open e...

Re: #OneGoodThing #coronavirus #covid19

I'm catching up on box sets/recorded TV I'd not yet had chance to see.

Re: C7 Rapide Automatic Strap Alternative

If you've decided you're keeping the watch, it's worth taking the stock strap off and working it with your hands - bend it, twist it, etc to loosen the material.

Re: Coronavirus Weekly Check-In Thread - March 21

my job (actuary) involves having to track and predict the course of the virus and work out how we should be responding to it This alone would make an interesting thread! I'm feeling guilty for cancelling on mothers day with my 75yr old Mum, but needs must. Apart from that, I've never eaten so consc...

Re: Coronavirus

The message needs to get through to the families who are either thick or just can't see beyond their own home. Stockpiling readily available goods does no one any good and just shows up us Brits compared to other countries. Italy, arguably the worst hit country in the world now, have loo rolls and m...
