Over a week since coming down with what the Doctors surgery suspects was Covid 19 and I still feel like I've been "Beaten Up" Totally lethargic feel tired all the time.

Not something i want to repeat... I've had to buy complete new bedding from quilts to pillows because of how much sweat came out of me.

I just hope we don't get a second wave like they;re predicting be cause no one knows if you can catch it twice.

I've been lucky so far. Me and my loved ones are all health and I'm still fully employed.

I mostly feel bad for my students. They've basically lost over a quarter of their education this year. We've been doing online learning, but many of them have limited access to computers and we really can't cover the same amount of material working remotely.

Its a worrying time I just hope it doesn't hit as bad as they fear it might.
Sorry to hear that, get well soon. Whatever the health issues you have you can overcome them by doing certain things. Eat right, take your vitamins, work out and exercise your body and pray. All the best.

Was put off religion over 40 years ago after being forced into going to church and Sunday school hated it

How are you holding up now... Gary, is it? Been a few days since your last update.

I don't know anybody IRL who's caught the bug. We (state govt) are starting to slowly return to the office. My team of ~20 can have up to 4 people in the office each day. I'm happy not to put my hand up for that, so I can keep saving money on bus fare, city lunches, etc.

Jonesy, I'd agree that weekends were my marriage's primary "quality time" window, back when I was staying with my mum during the working week up near town, while Shy stayed at home – a two-hour commute away. Now that we've sold that place and are renting closer to town, pre-COVID I got to come home to the girls each night, and now being with them most of each day... it's good times, man.

Not sure if I ever said as much back when we visited, but that plowman's you and I both had for lunch near Lord's was shithouse, wasn't it? Bits of scrap on a portion of feckin' railway sleeper, how absolutely pretentious.

p.s. G'day fuck.

One of the Unlucky? few

Well I have been inside my house for over 12 weeks now and I reckon with people going out to protest with mostly no face covering that a second spike here in the UK is imminent. Hate being stuck inside but if it keeps me from catching a dose of this awful disease then so be it.

Plenty to do as I DJ and realised that I need to go through my MP3's and edit the odd 14,000= tracks titled various. Don't you love the way some albums are tagged poorly.

Stay safe everyone, everywhere

Ditto I've been stuck in apart from the odd shopping trip.

I've spent 10 years curating and tagging my music collection. Its a labour of love.

mp3tag saved me shed loads of time.

I once invested money in SAM, worst mistake of my life. I switched from SAM near on 10 years ago now. $299 was a HUGE chunk of money to lose.

Yeah I'm over the Covid scare, now I have an Abscess causing me grief. My teeth never have been that great and i get infections all the sodding time.

Thank you for the well wishes fc*uk. Our students graduated without a ceremony and instead we've just done videos and a driving parade where graduates were in vehicles and spectators had to stand far from each other.


We've been ok with the quarantine because work keeps us busy most of the time, and where we live could keep us busy forever. As far as I know, none of my students got the disease. It helps to live in a mostly rural community.

Don't forget to live before you die.

I've blessedly managed to stay among the living, as has everyone I properly know. A distant relative of mine caught it and died a few months ago.

I tend to spend most of my time at home anyways so, it hasn't affected me very much aside from removing my ability to occasionally work at a café for a change of scenery, and isolating me from friends etc which takes its toll on one's mental health, but, such is the way of things.

Things are starting to change now, little by little, and I've been venturing out to get the odd fancy coffee or fruit smoothie along with a walk to get fresh air. Got some fun face masks. I should get one with a raven's beak printed on it.

Indeed. I widely attribute my ongoing survival to the additional social distancing benefits of wearing a colossal white plague doctor mask and screaming about infection rates.

I'm grumpy at America's flipping abysmal handling of this pandemic. I work very closely with a facility in Limerick, Ireland and those folks just think we are a bunch of ass clowns [which we are].

We can't test, the accuracy of the tests we have are abysmal, but you know what... none of that matters because we've gotta open up! It's nice that everyone (asshat of a president, local governors, etc.) are so willing to sacrifice human lives for capitalism. Though I guess we have been doing that since about the 1800's...

Even more frustrating... I was supposed to see Lindsey Stirling in Atlanta towards the end of July... clearly that didn't happen...

Over in the UK its no better the Tories are mishandling this pandemic and the term "Herd immunity" keeps getting banded about in this country.

they've opened bars far too early now they're blaming the public for an increase in the R rate.

Its truly unbelievable how America is handling it too.

at first most nations had comments about how this pandemic was handled by the dutch goverment , but given the situation in the world , it's not so bad to be living here.

Ok , small village and not a big city . Sticking to the rules , keeping my distance and working home , lucky to have a very big garden.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Nope, it's not a radiostation just a non stop darkwave music stream

I had no idea the UK was that bad off, or maybe it's just be comparison to the US. They have tried to shutdown bars here as those are fairly large transmission centers. However, it wasn't worded quite right, so bars can remain open by selling someone a $0.01 peanut with their pint. LOOK BRAH, WE SERVE FOOD TOO!!!! What idiots.

NJK, I hear you on the small town bit. Though I am in Florida, I am no where near Miami and am quite happy about that at the moment. Though Jacksonville is a fairly big city, it is a very spread out city which I believe helps. At times my wife and I have considered packing bags and moving to the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately, for the US that is where most of the noncompliant, COVID is a hoax, I'm not wearing a face mask folks live. So, not exactly the safest place either.

... and that's what really bakes my noodle. The rest of the world: we need to shutdown, wear a mask, and be compliant with what health organizations tell us. The US: oh, screw that; everyone is full of shit ... I'm doing what ever I want.

The UK has had it really bad over 60,000 deaths but I guess we'll never know the true figure as they keep fudging the stats,

I don't get why the Government has to sweep things under the carpet, just tell us the facts without being Truth Twisting charlatans.

They didn't lock down the UK early enough in the first instance which lead to more lives being lost.

I'll be glad when they find a vaccine

Between our collective disdain for social safety nets/universal health care, willingness to trust reality TV stars over scientists, and our general selfishness (e.g., all the people refusing to wear a mask or social distance), this disease feels almost tailor-made for screwing over Americans.

Suggesting that reopening society means we're "willing to sacrifice human lives for capitalism" is really childish. If you're willing to accept zero deaths, why do we allow people to drive? People die from influenza every year; are those deaths acceptable? Of course they are, because death is part of life.

People postulate as though there are good simple answers. There are no good simple answers; every scenario ends with some people dying, either directly at the hands of the virus, or indirectly due to economic strangulation leading to depression, suicide, etc.

The fact that places which have been essentially locked down full-time since May (California) have fared no better than those that have partially reopened (Florida, Texas) gives lie to the narrative that lockdown = success. Not accepting ANY deaths is how you make bad policy. There are also contributing vectors such as the virus having segmented/mutated since leaving China, the efficacy of masks, the silliness of mandating masks in sparsely populated outdoor areas like parks...

I come back to the line that there are no good, simple answers and that decrying Trump/Republican governance as the reason why people have died is disingenuous at best. Trump has no power to mandate masks or any other such unconstitutional measure; his [federal] job is to provide the governors what they need (which Democrat and Republican governors alike have said he has done), close international borders (which he did, to crows of xenophobia and racism at the time) and beyond that, leave the states to do their thing.

If Trump remarked at how nicely blue the sky was on a given day, some folks would claim it was orange. After all, orange man bad, right guys?
