A shopping update.
Aldi had much more stuff on the shelves this morning, though no paracetamol, babies nappies were in short supply...and no kitty litter. beer shelves had been raided
Lidli was well stocked with fruit and vegiies, bakery was closed...plentiful supply of meat cheese, milk and dairy.

Update on my last post, I have just discovered an unopened bottle of "Old Pulteney" 12 year old Malt Whisky left over from Christmas,so not everything is looking as bleak as I thought.
It should keep me happy for a day? or two.

Poundland had a few packs of Horlicks Farm Mature Cheddar at a quid.
fultons had a supply of different cheeses but they were larger packs so a bit more money(OK...Pay more, get more)

Re: Corona Virus

I'd like to respectfully (or disrespectfully, whichever way you look at it) offer a suggestion to all of you who are in a forced lockdown, and maybe want something to do. Why not get your fingers a-tapping and write a blog for Accyweb - or post a few controversial subjects that we can debate. Just a suggestion.

Re: Corona Virus

Yes...that would be good.
Tell us how you are managing.
Give us any hints and tips....especially those that would help us stop contemplating doing bodily harm to our other half and their irritating ways(we all have them).
I am going to try and do a daily blog....so there you go....that gives you the opportunity to either read it or avoid it.
What I would like to say is....stay safe, but live cheerful, not fearful.

Cashy, much has been made of this, but there is nothing to say that he did not pay to have this done privately.
The Royals are not known for using the NHS...people have ASSUMED that he has had this done on the NHS, but we do NOT know for sure.


Both the Queen and Prince Philip are elderly and as such are at risk from this virus, so it is sensible that he is tested so that he does not pass the virus on to either of them.


As far as testing...well everyone should be tested so that the extent of the virus can be more accurately determined.
All NHS labs have been geared up to do nothing only coronavirus testing in the coming weeks.
The current management is like trying to determine where a fire is by smelling the smoke.

Re: Corona Virus

The Government stopped testing after the first phase of its plan to fight the virus. Why ? The mayor of Bergamo , which is said to be two
weeks ahead of us, has said we should have been testing, The World Health Organisation is saying 'Test,Test,Test'.
Only now, after a week to ten days has the Government said it will 'ramp up' the frequency of testing to 10,000 and then 25,000 but this
week will only manage around 7,000.

Re: Corona Virus

Those tests are per day but in UK you only get it if you are so sick that you have to go to hospital. Germany is testing those with symptoms who don't necessarily have to go to hospital.
