    OG, thinking back to Sunday when jib was frightening the living daylights out of carltoon Lesh saw it so did I, maybe it has summit to do with that incident, worth looking into. Might be barking up the wrong tree but worth a look.

    Appreciate what you’re saying. The alarm bells should really go when the answer to a simple glass of wine question is ‘Just a half’

    No Jib, had always been ok with me. I don’t always agree with everything he says. I just like being able to read and post as I’ve no one to talk football with. I’m just pleased I’m accepted into our blog world. I don’t mind talking about anything or listening to the music ha been a relevation. So as long as no one minds a woman’s perspective I’m ok with that.

    I don’t think there’s any particular incident with Jib. Today’s snipe at OLG was his first post of the day. He’s just a troublesome narcissist and needs help.

    Anyway enought

    Lesh,

    There’s never any point in an ongoing feud….it’ll continue (and probably escalate) tomorrow.

    The only way for it to stop, is for one party to step back and not respond.

    Yes I might be up for the protests at the start of the season. Hope to meet up with Genjikai again. What he’s done for the campaign is amazing.

    it’s not Jib who has ever driven me from the Blog nor in fact any one particular poster. Its a decision that builds over time when it just isn’t fun to read or post and a break feels right.

    Not there yet but I have enjoyed my short time back again so far and these are difficult times for all but personally I find the Blog hard going when it gets bogged down – others don’t mind or even come on for it – each to their own
    Late evenings into early mornings are usually less confrontational ( but not always) and there’s room to breathe’ Its giving me an outlet at present and I’m not falling out with anyone so all good

    Ed doesn’t provide this for any one of us and we can all come and go as we please unless banned of course 😉

    Anyway “No Hard Feelings” from some North Carolinians

    Carltoon,

    Yes, in lockdown here.
    Michigan has a ‘shelter in place’ order – more or less the same as situation in the UK.

    Company has a ‘no travel’ policy in place.

    So, working from home (which is no issue for me)

    Received some parcels today at different times all very nice standing back placing packages on the step. Except the last delivery. I asked nicely if he put it on the step. And he threw into the hallway and walked away. Ha ha. I can only think he’d had a bad day.

    Magscar,

    Of course it is mate….it’s actually one of the reasons why this blog is so popular.
    To be honest, I quite enjoy reading the spats between people – I just don’t want to get personally involved in it (it’s actually educational – 101 in how not to behave)

    Why watch the soaps….when you can read this blog 🙂

    Anyway can’t stay long and whilst i have tended to post less well known artists and minor key stuff here’s one by a well known artist giving the full band treatment to one of his original acoustic songs and featuring a blistering and flash guitar solo from Tom Morello

    https://youtu.be/n-mq0uJ7rlM

    More uptempo but still no dance 🙁

    Magscar swayed gently, it was very good. Never heard any of these bands. Like I say it’s been an education. Your never to old to learn. Mind some of EGB where way out. But good.

    You’re probably right….I would guess a delivery persons attitude is a direct response to their last (previous) interaction 🙂

    Plans to expand emergency medical sites.

    Military planners are already examining five locations in support of the Department of Health and Social Care, a Whitehall source said.

    The London ExCel centre is being turned into a makeshift NHS Hospital and critical care unit to cope with the Coronavirus .
    The London ExCel centre will have two wards, each with the capacity for 2,000 beds
    They would not confirm any of the areas, but said they would likely include major cities like Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle.

    Think of a large empty space near to the RVI hospital with banqueting halls that could be converted into wards.
    Think of somewhere that has chargeable car parking for staff, on site catering facilities and toilets.
    Think again.
    Ashley would want far too much rent for this to work.

    Anywhere else spring to mind chaps ?
