Coping Strategy.

I get up at 6 am at work by 7.15 am. Eat lunch out, finish work at about 3pm. Do some shopping and then 3 evenings a week Bandy training. ( hockey played on ice but not ice hockey ) Weekends are spent visiting children and grandchildren. To be honest it has not really affected me. ( and I hope it stays that way )

Just remember to wash your hands and sing the Votum.

How long before the first redneck is spotted in the bible belt wearing a red baseball cap saying "Make America Ill Again"?
Ah, I see. Laughing at the working classes is presumably okay so long as they are American? How very egalitarian of you Mr Redshaw.

Why do you assume that all working class people are rednecks? Rednecks come from all classes. There's an upper class redneck (ex-Bullingdon club) running the government at present.

I hate to butt in folks but unfortunately this virus is distinctly unpleasant.

Many of my generation are required to stay behind closed doors with no visitors - family or others; it was until the end of June but some of us have had that extended to the end of October. OK if you have a garden plus friends to do the shopping but think of being cooped up in a flat!

A little bit of control if you please
Just curious. What has been your coping strategy...?
Keep busy.
- I am in touch with +/- 6000 people who share my medical condition and are not allowed outside their home (and there is quite a bit more than that :x
- Keep fit - I have to to remain stable
- I invest (sorry Rockfreak but I am one of those idiots who finance the jobs your friends hate so much) and that takes up a bit of time and brainpower every day
-I have a- moderate size garden which keeps me busy - 100+ show begonias, pinks and carnations and there are a couple of hundred seedlings to care for before growing them on
- I listen to music but not the crap played at CH
- I read a lot
- not had much time recently but want to learn watercolour painting (which that unmentionable was too disinterested in teaching) and guitar

so not a lot really
Je suis prest.

Is this aimed at me? Because if it is then you have misunderstood that I am living in a country with a different way of trying to get to grips with this virus.

It was a satirical reminder that Old Etonian Boris said "wash your hands and sing Happy Birthday" while Old Etonian Jacob Rees-Mogg said "wash your hands and sing the national anthem". Both of these went to the most expensive school in the land.

... and here I was thinking they both went to Eton.
