Not much different to us travelling the length of the country for an hour and a half's footy.I once got chatting to an old guy at breakfast in a B and B in Exeter. He was from Lincs and used to work on the trains and had a free pass. Since his wife passed away he spent most of his time working his way through the directory of Wetherspoons pubs, attempting to visit them all. He had four or five to do in and around Exeter with just a two night stay. He said he had visited the Wetherspoons in Dundee, there and back in one day, and only had 15 mins in the pub. You might say what a waste of time but I actually found him quite inspiring. It was also funny because he admitted the pubs were all the same. I think he just loved travelling. He'd followed Forest around Europe back in their heyday.
Equally importantly, I'm not too sure that I care at the moment. Obviously as things return to normal(ish) the appetite will return, but for now there are more important things to think about.Not much different to us travelling the length of the country for an hour and a half's footy.
I used to think yes I've been to these places, yet I'd only ever visited the football ground, and then come straight back home.
Nowadays I try (in the last summer beginning of the season, or early May) try to make a weekend of it , if it's somewhere pleasant, say Cotswolds, Plymouth, or Portsmouth.
I know people will be thinking "who wants to go there", but I'm getting old ,and I visit the surrounding areas.
Does anyone remember football matches?
Disagree. As the Government recently decided to spunk 100 Billion on a railway which is not needed, it can afford to keep the status quo for another few weeks.The big problem is that the government cant afford to not start lifting restrictions. Without tax revenues coming in, and with huge additional costs for furloughed workers and closed doors for businesses, the money will run out and there will be no money to pay for the NHS. So ironically, getting the economy some way to back on track means people going to work. Without that all important taxation revenue and financial recovery, the government can't pay for the NHS to treat the poor souls who contract the virus and end up being really unwell.
We have had a few more come through too although I suspect it is the fact that more people are being tested who are not symptomaticHi guys me again. I'm afraid I've seen a mini spike in covid cases over the last few days in A@E. Especially sunday and again today. Keep an eye on the magical R number...if they give it out of course.
Tonight is meant to be the last clap according to many, including the person that thought of it. It's 10 weeks.Its the morons who think its fun to go out and break guidelines, waste of emergency time three times on call out had to call the police, because of being spat on, and the poor B & T s only had one spit vest
My thoughts with you leeblue and your fellow workers, a few claps willnot make it any better for work/pay, but make you realise you are appreciated by us all
All of you deserve a medal at the end of this
Yeah I read that too and I’m a bit conflicted to be honest.Tonight is meant to be the last clap according to many, including the person that thought of it. It's 10 weeks.
Though I agree MKS re Instagram “look at me brigade” , it’s a personal thing and believe 2 minutes showing your support when you are on lockdown is a small price to pay , not only nurses but all the services and co workersThe clap has become more about those clapping (the Instagram generation) than those it's supposed to be about. I've not done it for weeks. There's a far better way to support the NHS you know.
