PHILANTHROPY

Let me call this rubbish out for what it is. A weak attempt to justify the accumulation of vast wealth by a small number of individuals. So the likes of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have pledged to donate 50% of their wealth to charity on death. My comment is mean bastards!

COOKIE TIME!

So easy – why did no one tell me about this recipe before I reached retirement age – or tell me how important it was to heat the oven as per the recipe!!

So oven at 180C

Covid-19

So the numbers of positive tests goes up by 50% in a day. Does this matter? Hospital admissions are steady. Will this give the “herd immunity” that we have heard lots about? Or is a start of a new wave?

CLIMATE CHANGE

A lot of people say Extinction Rebellion are going about things in the wrong way? F*** O**. What they really mean is write to your MP, or sign a petition and watch nothing happen!

PASTA

My children got me a pasta maker for last xmas. It is so cool. I am still amazed at how the billiard ball sized dough becomes metres long! And it tastes amazing. I usually play around with menu’s but I do not even want to try to deviate from perfection!

Covid-19

Things the government got wrong. Basically everything! Too late to shut down, PPE debacle, care homes, masks, quarantine, test and trace, exams. And still it does not realise that bombast and bluster from No.10 means absolutely nothing on the streets of Manchester or Leeds.

What is needed is a devolution of restrictions and incentives to regional level authorities. The South-West could probably have relaxed most restrictions weeks earlier, Parts of the North should never have restricted anything yet.
