You should be putting all that stuff on the Then & Now page! Come to think of it, maybe we should also start a page for everyone who lent Terry a fiver to buy Capt Morgan - Pam would need a bigger website!!! (just joking!)  ;D

Good to hear you're avoiding the plague, Terry - and Fran; well done both of you! We've endured commie-inspired lockdowns on and off for the past more than two years - barbed wire surrounding houses was a common sight - only for me to catch Covid no more than a few days after landing in Sydney: unbelievable in a so-called advanced (intelligent) civilisation! My back and kidney areas are now sources of constant pain and we don't know whether it's damage caused by Covid or some other source (the GP says "torn muscle" but it seriously feels more like kidney problems than muscle, but then I'm no doctor...) - but life goes on and I'll at least get out of here on Thursday (6 consecutive neg RAT results so far since Covid found someone else to maul) and back to Vietnam where they might not have much money but they've got a helluva lot more understanding of self-preservation than any of the maskless wonders in Sydney, and I'll feel much safer walking around between the massage and acupuncture appointments that Linh and Sunny are busily booking for me (assuming I can still walk, because I certainly won't be able to ride the bike for a long time yet) - happy days!
Dunno if Arsenal will make it into the top 4, but they've got more chance of that than LFC have of finishing 1st, more's the pity. Still, we shouldn't be greedy - and at least it's the blue Manchester team on top, not that other mob of misfits!
Linh says "Hi" to you both and wonders where JK and Babs have got to - any idea?

Hello Scouse, I have not had covid so far neither has my wife although many friends and relatives have. We have both had our fourth vaccine and we still wear the dreaded mask when in crowed places, ie supermarkets but notice that fewer and fewer people are. Went up to London (Ealing) for Easter were my daughter now lives and noticed a lot more people wearing masks but most were elderly. My daughter works for a film making company and has traveled to Spain, Portugal, Italy and even Iceland and she says that it is mainly the elderly in these countries that wear masks. So it appears that in Eurpoe at least that governments have relaxed their rules and are learning to live with covid  and treating it like flu. It appears that to keep covid at bay is to get as many of the population vaccinated as possible. The dreaded Spurs did not do Liverpool any favours , drawing  one all. Arsenal play Spurs Thursday night and of course I am hoping for a win so that Arsenal can consolidate 4th place, could even get third !! Stay safe love to Linh, Terry

Be careful you don't catch Covid then, Terry - I caught a dose just days after coming back to Oz end-April to fix a few things that were left by the wayside during the past 2+ years we've been stuck in VN by closed borders at both ends (VN and Oz). Everyone has different symptoms, apparently, and I was lucky to just feel ultra-lethargic with chronic diarrhoea and coughing from the lungs but no fever or chills.
But one thing I also noticed, hence this response, was a tendency to overbalance when making sharp turns or climbing/descending stairs. I'll stay close to the walls and anything else I can use to help stay upright(!) at least until my Covid finally disappears (very promising recovery this past week, with the thick red lines on the test-o-meter nearly gone now, thank goodness). But I'll still look for handholds when going up and down stairs at least for a little while - and when I can get back to VN and onto my bike for exercise every day that will hopefully restore balance all round. Maybe you could try pedalling around the hills of Cornwall to help restore your age-induced loss of balance?  ;D ;D ;D

Am finding it difficult these days to walk any distance without my lower back causing discomfort. Also am very weary of watching my step in case of a fall, already had 1 fall (no beer) and found it very difficult to regain my feet without assistance, thinking of getting a walking stick ! Not much fun getting old.
