  1. First one looks like a cryptic crossword clue - send for Webbo
  2. Second one Goldeneye
  3. I've been playing bowls for the past five years (though not this year due to Covid restrictions). I've always enjoyed sporting competition but hadn't really had any since I gave up cricket aged 50 and I'm retired now. Bowls provided that plus it has a great social side. I wish that I'd discovered it sooner. The club I play for has around 120 playing members and another 80 social members, there are activities all year round which is great. It holds 'taster' sessions where potential new members can visit the club and try bowls, and if interested they get six group training sess
  4. Sorry... Cry over spilt milk
  5. Grace periods? Cry the beloved country?
  6. Please be aware that many heating engineers are paid a commission by the boiler manufacturers to install their boilers, so if you ask them for a recommendation you may not get an unbiased opinion. I had lots of problems with our previous boiler but now have an Ideal Logic and have not had any problems with it.
  7. Do you have time for any sporting or social group activities? Because that's a way to meet other people with the same interests which gives you a head start in becoming friends with them. I gradually lost touch with many (but not all) friends of my youth and middle years as our lives changed. I joined a bowls club in my retirement and not only does it involve me in friendly sporting competition that I can handle at my age but there are now over a hundred people that I can chat to.

  9. I'm no expert but it's my view that mental health issues seem to be more acute in the intelligent - I've been reading your posts for some time and am certain that you fit into that category. Your post screams frustration at me, and I've no reason to believe that it isn't justified. And sometimes frustration is good because it drives us to take actions to overcome it. The trick is to make those positive rather than negative actions, and to direct these actions at things that can be changed rather than those that can't.. The advantage that I have over many on here is hi
  10. Thanks for the info - I've never been Bob.
  11. I could have sworn that that wasn't in the Bob Dylan original version (Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts, Blood on the Tracks)
  12. There is some evidence to suggest that contracting one coronavirus may provide some protection against contracting others due to the immune system response. Research into the SARS outbreak supports this hypothesis. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2550-z_reference.pdf However there is also practical evidence to suggest that there are limitations to this protection. The common cold is a coronavirus and also rapidly mutates, so there may be several mutations during a cold/flu season, the upshot being that someone can contract more than one common cold in a sin
  13. We may never get rid of the virus but we may get a vaccine, there are many groups worldwide working on one and if any are successful then that's our way out - the only viable alternative to herd immunity which will cost more lives. The current strategy appears to be to minimise infections until such a time that a vaccine becomes available, if it doesn't then we will need a Plan B.
  14. ELO's first chart success
  15. I believe that you're correct, however Covid-19 appears to be a slow-mutating virus. The only mutation I am aware of is the 614G mutation (the original virus from Wuhan was 614D but 614G is effectively the pandemic now). The spike protein of the virus contains a long chain of amino acids, it is number 614 in that chain which mutated. This appears to have made it more contagious and some studies have proposed that it has a higher fatality rate, though evidence to support this is inconclusive. In contrast the common cold is a swiftly mutating virus which is why someone can catch m
