Today's blog is not so much a blog, more of a list of useful URLs for those wanting to know factual information about Coronavirus and COVID-19.

Today's Blog is a stopgap to explain where I have been for a month and why I've been keeping my head down.

I just read this, although I have suspended my account on FB I managed to see it by scrolling past the log in box.

Pretty much where I'm at plus some other things regarding FB itself that I won't mention.

Hoping you are feeling well and unstressed.

Today's Blog looks back 60 years to my favourite childhood radio programme.

Life was much simpler then.

Today's Blog is about Nostalgia, which isn't what it used to be, because, of course, it never was.

Clocks go back in the UK on Saturday night

Today's Blog is a short ramble through my thoughts about the changing of the clocks and how Summer 2020 has been.

I don't think we should put the clocks back. We should put them forward. About 8 months should do it.

I usually love winter but am dreading this one. I am already beginning to struggle with heightened anxiety and increased phobia levels.

Today's Blog deals with awaiting the end of the world, if not from war or disease or famine, then through ignorance and stupidity.

Today's Blog is a serious one, examining how the government is balancing COVID19 deaths against unpopularity for not allowing large Christmas gatherings.

As someone with an elderly mum who lives alone, I would prefer her to have Christmas on her own so that we can meet alive and well in the sunshine, than risk not seeing her ever again.

A sensible blog entry, as usual...thanks Andy.

Today's blog is about COVID-19 vaccines not being a panacea and a plea to take care of yourselves and others.
