Re: Meanwhile...

And there was more, on Loose Ends, poet Luke Wright reading his lockdown poem 'Bring Me My Devil'.

Re: Meanwhile...

Mellow day indoors today, listening to some great radio (Radio 4): 3pm, an absolutely spellbinding adaptation of John Berger's book 'A Fortunate Man', superficially an account of a country GP's life but also a meditation on health and doctoring that didn't falter once. Then later 'Political Thinking...

We finally forced ourselves to get to the end of Killing Eve S3 on iplayer this evening. Has any other recent series lost its way so comprehensively so quickly?

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Today my colleague was complaining about the unfairness of people being paid to sit at home yet we still have to work-I pointed out that nobody chose covid, yes she knows but it still isn't fair. Yes, it must be great sitting at home on 80% of your pay, while your bills and outgoings remain the sam...

Re: Printed cycling shorts

You could look at Gear Club, which I think was what YACF used to use; they don't have a minimum order. The Fridays use a different supplier now, which involves the supplier holding the designs and printing off shirts, gilets, etc on demand, but they are quite expensive (or I thought they were anyway).

Re: TV/Streaming shows

We're enjoying it a lot too (watched eps 1&2 so far). And it's not hard to see why (apart from some good writing and acting): public health officials as heroes; recommendations to take far-reaching early action pretty unhesitatingly adopted despite the public impact, and seen to have paid off; inte...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

The town seemed almost as busy as pre-pandemic days today, and at gone 6.30 this evening the queue for Sports Direct was about a quarter of a mile long.

Re: I don't understand the difference between blackface and drag

It's tricky trying to separate the drag scene that is so celebrated at the moment from the mockery of women in the form of pantomime dames and Mrs Brown. I'd really like to see more of French and Saunders' fat-suited sleazy men, purely in the interest of balance you understand.
