God she's enough to make me buy a Chelsea tractor and leave the engine running outside a school, fly around the world endlessly just for the sake of it.
I might even put a few cans in the general waste

How do you stop maggots in food recycling bins, the obvious answer is stop the flies getting in there to lay eggs but I only open the lid just long enough to put food in

The positive part of this is I recycle

Had a ridiculous invasion of flies over the past few days... big ugly black things hanging out in my kitchen. no social distancing and definitely not part of my 'bubble' .....

Have had the 'cupboard under the sink' all pulled out and disinfected. thrown away old stuff that was there from 1972. Same behind the washing machine.

now - there are literally 'no flies on me'

sometimes it the little victories that make you smile

Just had a read and it seems he's run off to Spain after a fictional attack on his million pound home.

Obviously he's learned Spanish before moving there as he's a big advocate of being able to speak the language of the country where you live....

As my Nanna would say, good riddance to bad rubbish.

Another positive for today my mother whoís shieldingsaid on Friday she needed her hair cut, booked up and was picked up today by her hairdresser and taken to shop to get it sorted. That was done and the hairdressers car wouldnít start to take her home, so she popped to supermarket next door and then jumped on the hopper bus home. Her quote which my father relaid was Iíve wasted to much time on this bug if it gets me it gets me the Germans didnít so bums to it 😀

Spoke to my parents yesterday, and remembering that weeks ago my father (92) was taken twice into hospital for heart failure and was at deaths door, my mother lets slip that yesterday he was fixing the guttering on his shed and patching a wood panel on it. He thought it looked a bit shabby so painted two sides of shed and is going to do the other 2 panels today.

Apparently he is eyeing up some fence panels to paint as well.

I said I was coming down at weekend to repair shed, he said it couldn't wait and while its great to have the offer he's sure I have better things to do with my time.

This made me chuckle

Trump supporters have taken to calling themselves 'MAGA's' (from his Make America Great Again slogan).

The word maga in Nigerian means something different....

From Quora...

A 'maga' means a pawn in a scheme. For example the victim of fraud is a maga. The term was first used by Nigerian internet fraudsters but it has found its way to the Nigerian dictionary and means anybody that is being taken advantage of.


Have a good day all

Went for 48 hours carping and totally out of the blue and out of their usual feeding time, and immediately after a heavy rain shower, lo and behold a 35lb mirror

When I arrived at lake it was packed with lots of new people I don't recognise, mmm thought I, lots of new members the owner comes round and starts picking fault with everything and offers to buy out my remaining membership. I discuss this with him and love fishing there but over night I think he will just ban me for the slightest infringement so email him this morning to post me a cheque.

Positive notes no more driving for 2 hours and I have already lined up a membership elsewhere, so pastures a new to be explored

Off to see them both tomoz wth wifey, our dual heritage daughter, 3/4 black grandson, his white girlfriend and their son. Just popping in for some casual racism and stereotyping . No itís really for a slice of cake and a cuppa in the garden 😀 my mum at 85 still makes the best cakes ever 👍🏻 And it will be the first time they will meet their great, great grandson, he's 10 months old and was due to see them the week of lockdown so got postponed, socially distanced of course 😷😷😷

You will be so popular they will be pushing you back to work

My father made his first cup of tea today for himself and has had a poodle up and down his road with his new sooper dooper frame, not bad for an 92 year old who was admitted twice to hospital with heart failure and kidney infection in the last 3 weeks. The nurses cant believe that my mother 85 and him have not had any assistance from home helps and the rest before now! A proud generation who relied on themselves and no handouts ever.

agreed - and it's rare I'll say anything positive about a Man Utd player!

What an excellent example and role model. His family must be really proud of him.

I listened to a lady called Jane on Nihal's Radio 5 show today talking about the food poverty problem that is invisible to many. An amazing woman who is a self employed hairdresser and in the position of having to go food free on some days so her kids can eat.

Prompted me to do something and get involved here - https://fareshare.org.uk/

text FOOD to 70450 to donate £10 to help kids access the basics of a decent meal.

France's borders now open to all visitors from EU countries...Oh! Wait...we are no longer in the EU.

Not to worry though, They will officially open the boarders to all visitors from the UK and abroad on July 1st.

Father came back out of hospital yesterday having passed his 4th negative CV test. Apparently his medication when released on Tuesday was to high so from 9 pills a day he is now on 6. Hence his swift return after 18 hours. Heís been at home 24 hours and he is starting to get grumpy again so my mother thinks heís getting better 😂😂😂 We are distance visiting tomorrow and will arrange for the family to visit next week all 5 generations socially distancing including the great great grandchild over a few days 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Boris has said we can have special 'bubbles' which means that a person from outside of your household is now allowed to spend the night in your house.

However, at the time of writing, neither Lucy Liu nor Penelope Cruz have accepted my first come first served invitation....

I'm back after a self imposed ban brought on by the Mrs saying stop winding yourself up over CV on the tele, the internet and that forum.

My father was taken into hospital 2 weeks ago with heart failure so have been involved elsewhere, I have nothing but praise for the NHS. He was taken into hospital on the understanding he didn't he would die or go to hospital with a slight chance of catching CV. touchwood he is coming out tomorrow with a care package i place and has passed 3 CV tests so far all negative. He is 92 this year.

Bit of comedy to cheer us all up

MP's return to parliament today so they can vote on important bills this week.


Unless they are high risk

Or self isolating

Or travel isn't viable

Then they can't vote - not by video link, or by proxy (although if they are pregnant this is allowed)

Reports that they've been asked to organise a p*ss up in a brewery are said to be untrue...

non - essential shops to open again soon...

husbands across the nation breathe a huge sigh of relief

the hide their bank cards....

edit - just had a thought... It's June 15th they are set to reopen. Imagine the brownie points you can get by saying 'get yourself to the shops love and treat yourself - it's been a long time since you could do that'. Then the day after... the rivers are open again...

Just been on the phone with her now and she's sounding like herself again which is good. She's good mates with the nurse who works on her floor and she's promised to keep an eye on her when she gets back in. she does nights so maybe a bit less contact with the residents too...

best get that phone number ready for Ken...

I know exactly what you mean... was thinking similar about the overcrowded fisheries too but anglers probably won't care so much. just switch to grey camo gear instead...

My sis is much better thanks. she's 'officially' safe to return to work tomorrow but I'm pressing her to take a bit more time and she's of a similar mind. thanks for asking fella

I decided to remove 240m of line from 3 spools today.
To do it fairly accurately I walked out the line 30m walked back the 30m and done it 8 times per spool.
That's (30+30)x8=480m per spool x3 spools =1440m. That's my exercise done for the day.
Now going to refill them

I've used MSE to change suppliers a couple of times, been with Pure planet since November as they were the cheapest I've had no problems with them except now MSE says I can save £240 by switching again which is 20% a year.
That sounds too good to be true, I could switch without penalties but what's the betting they'll find someone else cheaper in a month or two

Chuffy do you need a smartmeter for Flipper. I'm holding out until they've 100% sorted the problems

Edit
Seeing this is meant to be a positive thread I think this qualifies
Just clicked the button to switch to Akro Energy. Fixed for a year and if they're **** I can leave without penalties.

On that subject I use Flipper, you pay them £25 a year and they constantly monitor your fuel usage and 'flip' you onto a cheaper supplier whenever one comes up, easily worth the 25 quid

Thats good news, but warn her about to much to soon, she will still have some down days but not as bad as it was but positive attitude can work wonders and some sun

had a walk out this morning and noticed loads of things - this staying alert is good stuff....

In some personal good news, spoke to my sister earlier and she's feeling a bit better for the second day in succession so here's hoping she's on the up.

Thanks again to all who have asked after her - like I said yesterday, some good people out there

Don't know if I had CV or something else, mine came in waves, ups and downs. Still 5 weeks after I have a couple of good days and then a bad one.

As long as the downs don't get worse its bearable but keep pushing the 111 reminders.

Fingers crossed

thanks for asking mate

she felt better yesterday but has gone downhill again today - apparently that's true for a lot of people with it.

she's suffering a lot with dizzyness along with the breathing issues. I said she was dizzy to start with but ....

As per the past posts abou cousins dad

Well he went home Monday, internal bleeding sorted and having survived CV and the priest. He seems well enough after 2 radiotherapy sessions and awaits results from that. He was meant to go home Friday but because he was in hospital they gave him another CV test which was positive so kept him in over weekend. No signs and symptoms tested him again Monday and negative 🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️ Either a false positive Friday or as in singapore itís detecting dead cells?

He was so well Tuesday he wanted to do some food shopping but this was all arranged and a volunteer got it for him👍🏻 So all good news,


So from deaths door to wanting to pop to supermarket 😷😷😷

Air pollution is down massively - some amazing footage of the lack of smog in India on tv today.

Here's hoping we can learn from this - so many people are working from home just as effectively as after a car journey to work. Maybe a shift in society...?

Just got a message to say the lake I've been fishing for the last year is re-opening tomorrow.
And 6 months ago I booked one of the best swims for 5 days from this Saturday.
Whey-hey .. I can go fishing again!

Positive for me only I'm afraid, but I'm sure you understand.

Alright all?

So the NHS volunteer scheme has been slow to start, but is picking up.

One of the issues has been people in some kind of need for help not knowing how to access the scheme sp they've produced a poster which is here...

https://volunteering.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/documents/final-rvs-nhsvolres-postertemplate-v2-1008.pdf


If you are able to print off and display anywhere / happy to ask if they'll put one in your local shop etc. it could help someone to get in touch.

thanks all

Looks like there are plans in place to get some kids back to school early June

The Y10 and Y12 cohorts have really suffered with the closures as they would usually be right in the thick of their exam syllabus learning so if we can safely get them back in some shape asap it would be a big win

The ongoing recession is turning out to be the steepest in living memory ... no surprise there! However. the markets are forward-looking so asset prices reflect future developments before they show up in the data. We need to think about things that are not yet materialising and begin to position for them before they do. This means thinking about a U-shaped economic path as we transition.This will be faster where liquidity is the main challenge and slower where solvency is the problem. All in all, pretty positive long term but there is more short term pain to be suffered yet.

I'm guessing she doesn't read the forum then....

Fishie - she's much the same. Staying home and doing very little as she gets out of breath doing even basic things...thanks for asking

Yes that's a positive, getting rid of Ashworth would be another positive.

My missus wasn't well yesterday couldn't get up and ached all over, that was a worry, all better today. That's a positive as she can get up and put the kettle on now

Its up and down like a whores knickers. Yes there have been losses and gains and this will continue until Boris launches his plans and watch a recovery. But watch a dip if a second wave breaks out.

Positive news the suns out and another day in garden.

Mal how's your sister doing hopefully good news.

That would be too cruel. She's a basket case as it is! Thank God Corbyn and his cronies like Abbott are now banished to the back benches. There's a positive if ever there was one!

reminds me of that Green Day song - Basket Case (actually the lyrics remind me of someone on here.... )

Tinhead - I think that's a good plan. As you say she's effectively been in isolation anyway and being around your people is important for all of us eh?

I'd like to see the Room Next Door bloke do some footy players / managers. Plenty of raw material there...

If sheís been in and not in contact with anyone and you are the same I canít see a problem with it, as technically your both self isolating and should be free of CV. I would keep a bit of space between you all for a week all should be good.

Thatís what this country needs is a big injection of common sense I was in supermarket this morning waiting a safe distance form a slow elderly shopper and I could feel the woman behind me inching closer So much so was kicking her basket along and it hit the back of my leg. I turned around and she was listening to someone on her mobile, I gave the Paddington bear stare and get out of my space look. Totally ignored me carrying on chatting so I kicked her basket back at her. She suddenly realised what she had done and apologised and backed up a bit. Hopefully she learned from this but I donít think so!

So have I just invented basket rage 😷😷😷

The other reason is he doesn't do Labour, I'd find him more funnier if he done everyone a bit like they did on Spitting Image.
Anyway must keep things positive...since lockdown my daughter has been living in her flat alone and it's doing her head in so she's coming back to our house for a few weeks. We've checked distancing rules and as long as there's no back and forwards this is allowed.

I seem be the focus of bad news if you read this thread in relation to illness but some updates

Cousins dad has now had his second radiography treatment nd he and his results appear positive.

My Mrs had a scale lump on her shoulder where a mole was and it appeared to disappear but this patch of dry scaley skin formed. Went to DR's just before lockdown he did a biopsy and sent it off. Result 4 days later its Bowens disease, a mild form of skin cancer he said he would recommend her for treatment on a tuesday, the first Tuesday of shut down.. On thursday Dermatology department contacted her can she come in for assessment, was expecting a couple of months for appointment, no it was on friday. They did assessment on friday and we would hear in future for a possible date to discuss treatment. Expected a long wait. letter arrived on tuesday can you come in sunday to have it removed. Went in Sunday and had a local anaesthetic and it was removed, stitched up and it would be sent away for tests. now 10 days later its come back as a pre cancerous lesion and benign so no further treatment required. So start to finish in less than 5 weeks the NHS should be proud of itself and although what you read the NHS was never closed for anything except CV related treatment.

And a mate had a CV test and negative test result back in 36 hours.

So another big thanks to the NHS

Ken, itís an alternative point of view! Simple as that really!

The fact Mal and others dismiss any other point of view as a conspiracy or extremist is a step to far!

Just a note, things like this I am posting isnít necessarily my point of view, quite the contrary but itís good to see how people are so easy to over react and present there view as FACT when really itís as crazy as the statement I posted!

Seems like everyone is an expert at the minute when the reality is we ALL know **** all......good day to you......

All This aside.......hereís my positive thought of the day.........Itís sunny and the lake looks stunning......

F*** off Wayne

your rant is an insult to every single person that has died from your so called scamdemic and every single person who cared about them

it 'sickens' you does it? as much as your 'joke' post about the Holocaust and Auschwitz was sickening or a bit more than that?

the idea for this thread is for us to share some positivity - there's no sense of being hoodwinked or puppeted by your supposed evil dictators. It's an opportunity for us to share big / small / international / personal thoughts that are simply 'positive'

if you don't like it - don't read it

Hereís my thought of the day......

You know what really sickens me the most about this whole thing. It's not the satanic blood drinking psychopaths who run this world that are controlling, manipulating, imprisoning, poisoning and murdering us. They're Evil psycopaths and its atleast expected from them.

Its EVERYBODY'S ****ing APATHY and simple disinterest in what's actually going on here that SICKENS ME . Everyone cowering in their homes waiting for their instructions from the masters through the brainwashing box. Snitching on neighbours for going outside in the sun and complying like good little house slaves 🤬

We are literal prisoners in our own homes. Peoples businesses have gone under, families having to use food banks, we're facing a worst depression known to man. Thousands committing suicide, thousands become victims of domestic violence and murder, mental health issues spiral out of control and old people die of loneliness. All this based on lies,false data, fear porn and propaganda sold to you by your beloved Government and Mainstream media

Myself and thousands of others have spent endless hours posting content showing medical professionals speaking out openly stating that hospitals were empty and that the government and mainstream media have been actively and openly manipulating infections numbers, death statistics and death certificates to suit their agenda to perpetuate this illegal lockdown. Yet you still don't care?

Instead choosing to parrot the BULL**** official narrative and police your neighbours with your moral outrage

STAY AT HOME
HELP THE NHS
SAVE LIVES

In the end this unlawful lockdown will kill more people than any BS virus and we were ALL complicit in this. Blindly following orders and propaganda from corrupt government and media. Their reporting/senationalising of this WHOLE thing to sell the masses FEAR is nothing short of CRIMINAL and they need to be held accountable.

This long time planned and orchestrated SCAMdemic has been this biggest POWER GRAB, DECEPTION and THEFT of basic human rights/civil/liberties/freedoms in history of mankind. Yet In the age of the internet and all knowledge being at your fingertips YOUR ignorance is by choice.

But no worries, you just play in your garden as ALL our civil liberties are stripped away, while humanity is steered ever closer to a tyrannical, totalitarian, technocratic, satanic centralised government. Controlled, survailed, tracked chipped, poisoned and forcibly vaccinated.

Atleast you all had a few months locked in house having some real family time doing pathetic Facebook challenges, eating takeaways, drinking beer, playing on Tik tok and clapping at your back doors like performing seals to empty hospitals and dancing nurses in some weird Stockholm syndrome like scenario

While the world literally burned around us

This Coronavirus fear mongering by the deep state will go down in history as one of the biggest hoaxes/frauds to manipulate economies, suppress decent and push MANDATED medicine ever known to man

Life as we all knew it will NEVER return

We tried

Enjoy your vaccine 😏

Extremely positive Kenneth

Have a bottle in my cupboard with a few other single malts, donít drink them a lot but that is definitely up there with the best. Iíve been to Islay a few times and visited the Bowmore distillery, cracking day out and a few nice samples afterwards. You cannot beat those nice peaty malts. Finest crystal, few ice rocks in the bottom, enjoy

Nice crystal tumbler, 5 ice, as with all my whisky and rum and a nice drop over the top, ahhhhh, and relax

Brilliant.

Boris is back and looks miles better than the clapping pictures

Hopefully now the country will have some focus again for the future.

I'm not saying he will get everything right but lets keep fingers crossed!

The left wing MSM and political parties will never forgive him for not dying

I remember around 10 years ago , i was driving down to the south of France and was trying to pass the time on the ferry by wandering round the duty free shop when i spotted an old favorite , glengoyne , 100's of bottles on offer , 1 litre bottles , 17 15 and 12 year old at unbelievable prices , i went and found my mate and bought all we could , the 17 year was fantastic similar to a good Macallan , just wish i could of bought more ,they are quite expensive now

We bought two 1ltr bottles last time we crossed to France. Sadly we finished the 2nd one three days ago. Luckily a 70cl bottle of the golden nectar is on its way to us...Thanks, Amazon.

Well done for them 😀 but a 99 year old raised just as much without the look at me look at me.

Watch that disappear into the rednose - sport relief hierarchy charity void.

But on a positive note we all actually donated as the government match pound for pound the donated money 👍🏻 So well done us 😀😀😀

Just an update on my cousins Dad, he FaceTimed him yesterday and said he looked **** but better than he thought he would

for those that don't read this topic he is a cancer sufferer given a year to go and was taken into hospital 2 weeks ago. They stabilised some internal bleeding and discovered he had CV. He spent days in ICU and signed up for some drug tests, he had the priest do his thing and 2 days later was vastly improved. He will be 7 days free of symptoms tomorrow and has tested negative.

he is getting radiotherapy treatment tomorrow to alleviate his cancer and then sent home next week with carers in place to assist him. This treatment was not expected but they have capacity to carry this additional treatment out.

So thank you to all the staff of the NHS

My sister who is a care home worker stopped in the supermarket for some bits on the way home. When she got to the till she was given an extra bag with some basics in. Toilet rolls, non perishables etc. She's tough as boots but was moved to tears.

Heís raised that with none of the bluster and bigging up celebrities do for comic relief, red nose etc ....

Hopefully it all goes to the front line free of charge without the charity elite managers getting involved and drawing large salaries and requiring big London offices in the city.

Number Ten to Captain Tom
Number Ten to Captain Tom
Take your Senatogen and put your jacket on
Number Ten to Captain Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, slippers on (five, four, three)
Check your Wertherís and may God's love be with you (two, one, liftoff)
This is Number Ten to Captain Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to see the path you wear
Look it up on Google Earth if you dare
"This is Captain Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm walking in a most determined way
And hope that this makes up for cuts in nursesí pay
For here
Am I walking round my garden
Far above the world
Number ten is blue
And there's nothing I can doĒ

Hi Sir B,

You mean Justin Hawkins?......really......but can Mal sing in falsetto?

Hi All,

Just to report that Tom Moore has just done his 100 laps with a guard of honour from the Yorkshire regiment, his old county. As I write, the donations have just passed, wait for it.......£12.3 million. Incredible and the money keeps pouring in.
Capt. Tom has become an icon, a rallying call for people all around the world to focus their desire to help and try and make a difference. They see that old soldier wearing his medals, still trying to serve his country and it spurs them to join in.
I bet in the future, the name, Capt.Tom will become a metaphor for generous acts..

In the US, Lieutenant Dan, the war wounded character from Forrest Gump has become a huge icon for the support of the US military, gold star families and first responders.
Gary Sinise, the actor and musician who played him, formed the Gary Sinise Foundation, which has become an enormous enterprise and formed the Lt. Dan Band, which travels the US and the world where US troops are stationed and play close to 100 concerts a year. Part of the Foundation is the Snowball Express to help Gold Star children who have lost a parent. Every year, they take about 1750 of them and their mothers to Disneyland Florida for 4 days and give them the time of their lives. It's incredible what Gary Sinise has achieved and is all documented on U tube with loads of videos.
Take a look, it's really inspirational. The man's a legend.

BB.

Strange thought you were a flannel shirt, corduroy and loafer man.

One of the junkies that patrol the local Sainsburyís picking up fat butts scavenged half a benson some lads chucked on the floor earlier. So they gave him a rizla and minuscule nugget of weed, he looked made up!
Peace and love man..... peace and love
