    I am off to the seaside today - to get a sneeze scream fitted behind the driver's seat of my truck. Why we can't do it in-house I do not know. o_O
    Might all become clear once it's fitted.

    Morning All :D
    There's nothing like a good night's sleep. :)
    And that was nothing like a good night's sleep. :(
    But never mind. It is a really lovely day out there :)
    Paper's got, cats are fed, dishes cleared and coffee's here.:D
    Do have a lovely day, I certainly shall. Except for shopping, that's always carp. :D

    Yes indeed, I did think of the neighbours, well as much as they thought of me when they used their hammer drill at 23:00 last night.......

    So, a pub in Turktown opened at the weekend. Reports are that there was no social distancing, ppe, etc etc.
    "looked like a normal Saturday evening" with people queueing at the bar.
    They've now been forced to close because of a case of covid over the weekend. Essentially the place was a virus bomb.
    Am dismayed, but regretfully not surprised.

    Nice work @My Old Landy.
    Manual machining is becoming a niche art I fear
