    Re: International Army February 2020

    Don't know if I dare say this but isn't it just flu.........it can kill the likes of the elderly, the unfit, those with pre-existing conditions. The S&H got swine flu in 2009 he shrugged it off in a couple of days. But he was a fit as a flea and only 21.
    My old doctor used tell the difference between flu and a nasty cold was:
    If there's a 20 note in the garden and you go and pick it up..............its a cold
    If there's a 20 note in the garden and you just can't, can't be bothered.......... its flu.
    Of course when Hong Kong flu was doing the rounds we didn't have internet so we didn't go into a blind panic.
    Yes I've been to Wikipedia.

    @satz123..........that's a disgrace. Is there a big turnover of staff?

    Ahh, Molls.........sit on your hands and use a bulldog clip for your mouth.

    Yep drama.
    Jesus we LOVE a drama As you said Jacks before WWW - we knew feck all & didn't panic.

    It'll be the Brennan's bread debacle next Molls .............

    ps The funny thing is - before all this happened - the nurse in work had a box of face masks -I says "gis a loan of one for a laugh".
    So I went home & when MrS came out of the bathroom I was standing outside with the mask on ..... I thought I was hilarious ..
    Now I think I'll get money for them on eBay ....

    Yes it's a new strain of the cold / flu virus. It's a worry because no-one was vaccinated against it apparently.
    I really do think it's mass hysteria - normal run-o-the-mill seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year....

    Well that's the flu stats out of the way. Knew I logged on for something.
    Feel for you Molly. At what point do we ever get to give ourselves the thumbs up, nod in satisfaction and get on with our own lives? Heard of another youngster in serious trouble this week. Local kid, friend of my kid. Lovely parents. Nice enough kid too, just a little bugger sometimes.

    Big event at work has been taking up my time and of course I've had no help with it but we've just been placed on austerity measures because of loss of income stream via the Coronavirus, so lucky to have a job at all.

    Hope Stirly is OK. I'd noticed that she wasn't around.

    Thinking of you Brit and Mr Brit.

    Re: International Army February 2020

    Morning and waves to the world,
    Two questions..................what on earth is the Brennan's bread debacle?............and what are austerity measures and why?
    I'm not making light of of it.............. in 1997 I had flu that turned nasty ended up with a severe chest infection. I didn't find out I'd had pneumonia until I went to the doctors the following week to get a sick note.


    Stirly's slammed at work and will be seen soon.

    Sitting here twiddling thumbs waiting for the plasterer. Last stage of the re-vamp has started. Just the ceiling and a bit of painting.
