    That’s a great call Carltoon. My store has been shut down now because of the lockdown. We should have an excess of the N95 masks so I’ll have one of my managers get everything rounded up and take them to our local hospital PRI.

    Ideally they should be N95’s but at this stage I think they’ll pretty much take whatever they can get.

    Some people on here complain about politics then put a load of music on.
    There must be a specialised blog for music fans.lol
    I’m sure there are loads of jazz fans on here.
    Just watched a program on miles Davis.
    Good documentary but crap music.

    Carltoon previous, thanks but I think we’ll manage somehow… She’s got about a week and a half’s worth.. The supplier on ebay was kosher enough so I’ll just keep an eye on things, we are hoping all hospitals will have some stock very very soon… What they promise on TV and whats real are a world apart.
    Coming home@4. That’s so bloody unfair it boils my piss, it really does

    J a f , sorry it might not have been you who was the baker. The music is great we’ve not got much else when there’s no football. It keeps the blog going for us who are isolated.

    “We urgently call on Newcastle United to suspend all season ticket direct debits.

    “Fans should not be expected to pay whilst the country faces a national emergency.

    “Thousands of fans have lost their income and suspending ST direct debits will give some relief in these difficult times.”

    Ok feeling the need for a rant. As those of you who were about earlier will know I volunteered to come out of retirement to go back to my old job in NHS. Old management delighted but have now been told that HR need to follow due processes.
    Who are these people – do they not watch the news. God knows how they are going to process 11000 people who have volunteered to go back. The normal due processes take about 3 months !!
    Rant over sorry guys and gals but it seems you can’t do the right thing. I’ve even said I would go in as a volunteer if it speeds things up
    Anyway stay safe everyone

    Here’s someone Interesting!

    Lucinda .. first song she could be singing about the virus .

    Read someone here mention Zydeco ..cajun …it blends a few genres of music we all are, mostly, familiar with . South West Lousiana , French Creole speak ..blues, R&B , all comes around originally , from the natives of that region .

    Lucinda sings about it in part in her Song .. “Crescent City ” ..well Off the top of me head think that’s the one .

    Stick with this gig from tiny desk series.. there’s a song I do at the end that she does ..”West Memphis ” I sing West Denton when everybodys had a few ..no one notices !
