  1. Not bad, little slow maturing but good drive when out and laid back at home, generally pretty easy to have around.
  2. I'll be getting her some moleskin next

Of a powerful army, so Great it saved Britain. They didn't have bombs and they didn't have planes. They fought with their hearts and they fought with their brains. They didn't have bullets, armed just with a mask. We sent them to war, with one simple task. It couldn't be stopped by our bullet proof vests. An invisible enemy, invaded our chests. So we called on our weapon, our soldiers in Blue. "All Doctors, All Nurses, Your Country needs you". We clapped on our streets, hearts bursting with pride. As they went off to war, while we stayed inside. They struggled at first, as they searched for supplies. But they stared down the virus, in the whites of its eyes. They leaped from the trenches and didn't think twice. Some never came back, the ultimate price. So tired, so weary, yet still they fought on. As the virus was beaten and the battle was won. The many of us, owe so much, to so few. The brave and the bold, our heroes in Blue. So let's line the streets and remember our debt. We love you, our heroes, Lest we forget." Matt Kelly 2020
  4. I've a friend, doctor in a hospital in Barcelona, its been bad there, stay safe
  5. Swabbing is key, then isolate and trace, we aren't doing it so have very little knowledge of numbers, spread etc, we are depending on hope that the isolation works rather than backing it up with targeted intervention and that comes at a price in lives.
  6. We have flu jabs each year as there are different strains rather than fading immunity. Hopefully this will be the same for corona 19, once you've had it your immunity will last.

  8. If you already knew and wasn't interested you wouldn't mention it lol. You'd know the reasons are very well known, although perhaps not by Marge on facebook that read an article on the internet or your mate that took you up the Quantocks .
  9. I take it you refer to Thimerosal, this is the compound in some vaccines that breaks down in the body into ethyl mercury? But as we can remove ethyl mercury from our bodies it does not build up like methyl mercury, which does, bioaccumulate, and so can becomes harmful. Basically although both compounds contain mercury they are structurally different and the one occasionally used in vaccines is harmless in the doses used.. (It would seem the nurse knows what he'd talking about again)
  10. tis quite the norm in somerset....................
  11. Not far off but a bit more natural, a cherry and an apple.
  12. So pretty much all the doctors, nurses etc support vaccinations, the great part of the scientific community support vaccines, outside the loony fringe, but some fella that took you up the quantocks don't so that's you decided...................................... Some stuff re corona vaccines etc. https://www.skepticalraptor.com/skepticalraptorblog.php/ lots of good stuff re anti vacs here. https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/?s=anti+vaccine&category_name=&submit=Search myths debunked. https://www.aaaai.org/conditions-and-treatments/library/allergy-library/vaccine-myth-fact https://www.publichealth.org/public-awareness/understanding-vaccines/vaccine-myths-debunked/
