This from the UK .
Police have the power to issue 'unlimited fines' to people who don't comply with social distancing measures, the health secretary has told the House of Commons.
Matt Hancock said fines would start at £30 ($35.25) but could rise indefinitely for non-compliance.
He said: "These measures are not advice, they are rules and will be enforced, including by the police with fines starting at £30 up to unlimited fines for non compliance.
"Home is now the front line, and in this national effort, working together, we can defeat this disease. Everyone has a part to play."
PS . Do you think the police are going a bit to far in the way they are handling this . IE taking drone pics of people outside . Stopping people in the streets to ask why they are outdoors without a good reason . What say you ??

Fools Rush In
Elvis Presley

"Romance is a game for fools"
I used to say
A game I thought I'd never play
"Romance is a game for fools"
I said and grinned
Then you passed by
And here am I
Throwing caution to the wind

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you, my love, my heart above my head.
Though I see the danger there
If there's a chance for me, then I don't care

Mm-mm-mm-mm
Fools rush in where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love, so how are they to know?
When we met, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let this fool rush in

Fools rush in where wise men never, never, never go
Eh, but wise men never fall in love, so how are they to know?
Ah, when we met, girl, I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let this fool rush in

Just open up your heart and let this fool rush on in
Just open up your heart because I-I-I-I-I-I-I am coming in
Open up your heart and let this fool rush in!

It has to be . The Beatles "FOOL ON THE HILL"

Day after day
Alone on a hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round

Well on the way
Head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices
Talking perfectly loud

But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
'Round and 'round and 'round and 'round and round

And he never listens to them
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like him

The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round

Oh
Oh

From what I have heard . The virus gets into the airways and when the cells die off the slough falls into the lungs and blocks them up so the victim can't breath "Frieman explains that SARS loved to infect and kill cilia cells, which then sloughed off and filled patients’ airways with debris and fluids". I don't think it gets in the bloodstream . Could be wrong ?. But that's the way I heard it .
@dgraph
There is a theory that the virus was animal related . And was carried to humans by bats .

March of the black Queen . Queen

Do you mean it?
Do you mean it?
Do you mean it?
Why don't you mean it?
Why do I follow you and where do you go?

You've never seen nothing like it
No, never in your life
Like going up to heaven
And then coming back alive
Let me tell you all about it
And the world will so allow it
Ooh, give me a little time to choose
Water babies singing in a lily-pool delight
Blue powder monkeys praying in the dead of night
Here comes the black queen, poking in the pile
Fie-fo the black queen, marching single file

Take this, take that
Bring them down to size
(March to the black queen)

Put them in the cellar with the naughty boys
A little nigger sugar then a rub-a dub-a baby oil
Black on, black on every finger nail and toe
We've only begun, begun

Make this, make that
Keep making all that noise
(March to the black queen)

Now I've got a belly full
You can be my sugar baby
You can be my honey chile, yes

A voice from behind me reminds me
Spread out your wings, you are an angel
Remember to deliver with the speed of light
A little bit of love and joy
Everything you do bears a will and a why and a wherefore
A little bit of love and joy
In each and every soul lies a man
Very soon he'll deceive and discover
But even 'til the end of his life
He'll bring a little love

I reign with my left hand
I rule with my right
I'm Lord of all darkness
I'm queen of the night
But I've got the power
Now do the march of the black queen
My life is in your hands
I'll fo and I'll fie
I'll be what you make me
I'll do what you like
I'll be your bad boy
I'll be your bad boy
I'll do the march of the black queen
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Walking to the style
She's vulgar, 'buse and vile
Fie-fo the black queen tattoos all her pies
She boils, and she bakes, and she never dots her "I's"
She's our leader

Forget your sing-alongs and your lullabies
Surrender to the city of the fireflies
Dance with the devil, beat with the band
To hell with all of you hand-in-hand
But now it's time to be gone
La, la, la, la, forever, forever

I had the echo stress test done and an MRI scan . They found I have LBBB and aortic stenosis . At the moment I am on just medication . Later on I may require an aortic valve replacement . "The LBBB" stands for left bundle branch block .

What about! . His stuffed severed arm clutching his oppo's bollocks . What a trophy that would make

I did Thursday 26/03 for him . Me too hopes he is allright .

The Specials . Hey little rich girl .

Mum bought you a fur coat when you were fifteen
You wore it to the disco, but everyone was in jeans

But you were a rich girl, and only having fun
Your low cut dresses, brought stares from everyone
Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?

You left for London, when you were nineteen
Had to pull off your nice clothes, just living on dreams
A man in the bright lights took all that you own
Now he's taken your freedom for a fate unknown

But you were a rich girl, hardly having fun
Your worn out dresses, brought stares from everyone
Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?

Hey, little rich girl you've been away for so long
And now little rich girl, my words are in this song
Hey, little rich girl my love for you is gone
And now little rich girl, I know where you went wrong

At your dad's office party all the movies were blue
Caused him so much heart ache, because the screen star was you
You left for London, when you were nineteen
Had to pull off your nice clothes, but you were living on dreams

You were a rich girl, and only having fun
But your worn out dresses, brought stares from everyone
Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?
Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?
Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?

Cat Stevens . I love my dog .

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through

All he asks from me is the food to give him strength
All he ever needs is love and that he knows he'll get

So, I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through

All the pay I need comes a-shinin' through his eyes
I don't need no cold water to make me realize that

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through

I love my dog, baby, I love my dog
I said, I love my dog, baby, I love my dog
Baby, I love my dog

By Ted-E-Bare at 27,Mar,20 19:57
My Dear . As we say . There's now't as queer as folk when it comes down to it .

It can all seem so meaningless. Some random biological mutation sweeps across the globe, murdering thousands, lacerating families and pulverizing dreams.
Life and death can seem completely arbitrary. Religions and philosophies can seem like cruel jokes. The only thing that matters is survival. Without the inspiration of a higher meaning, selfishness takes over.
This mind-set is the temptation of the hour — but of course it’s wrong. We’ll look back on this as one of the most meaningful periods of our lives.
Viktor Frankl, writing from the madness of the Holocaust, reminded us that we don’t get to choose our difficulties, but we do have the freedom to select our responses. Meaning, he argued, comes from three things: the work we offer in times of crisis, the love we give and our ability to display courage in the face of suffering. The menace may be subhuman or superhuman, but we all have the option of asserting our own dignity, even to the end.
I’d add one other source of meaning. It’s the story we tell about this moment. It’s the way we tie our moment of suffering to a larger narrative of redemption. It’s the way we then go out and stubbornly live out that story. The plague today is an invisible monster, but it gives birth to a better world.
This particular plague hits us at exactly the spots where we are weakest and exposes exactly those ills we had lazily come to tolerate. We’re already a divided nation, and the plague makes us distance from one another. We define ourselves too much by our careers, and the plague threatens to sweep them away. We’re a morally inarticulate culture, and now the fundamental moral questions apply.
In this way the plague demands that we address our problems in ways we weren’t forced to before. The plague brings forth our creativity. It’s during economic and social depressions that the great organizations of the future are spawned.
Already, there’s a new energy coming into the world. The paradigmatic image of this crisis is all those online images of people finding ways to sing and dance together across distance.
Those videos call to mind that moment of Exodus when Miriam breaks into song. “It is the dance that generates the light,” Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg writes, “the women produce an energy in the light of which all participate equally in the presence of God.”
Already there’s a shift of values coming to the world. We’re forced to be intentional about keeping up our human connections. Relationships get forged tighter by the pressure of mutual dread. Everybody hungers for tighter bonds and deeper care.
Wouldn’t it be great to possess the quality that one biographer found in the novelist E.M. Forster: “To speak to him was to be seduced by an inverse charisma, a sense of being listened to with such intensity that you had to be your most honest, sharpest, and best self.”
There’s a new action coming into the world, too. I was on a Zoom call this week with 3,000 college students hosted by the Veritas Forum. One question was on all their minds: What can I do right now?
I was on another Zoom call with 30 Weavers, and each one of them had begun some new activity to serve their neighbors. One lady was passing out vegetable seeds so families could plant their own vegetable gardens. Others are turning those tiny front-yard libraries into front-yard pantries. Some people are putting the holiday lights back up on their houses just to spread some cheer. You can share your social innovation here.
There’s a new introspection coming into the world, as well. Everybody I talk to these days seems eager to have deeper conversations and ask more fundamental questions:
Are you ready to die? If your lungs filled with fluid a week from Tuesday would you be content with the life you’ve lived?
What would you do if a loved one died? Do you know where your most trusted spiritual and relational resources lie?
What role do you play in this crisis? What is the specific way you are situated to serve?
We are all assigned the task of confronting our own fear. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a pit of fear in my stomach since this started that hasn’t gone away. But gradually you discover that you have the resources to cope as you fight the fear with conversation and direct action. A stronger self emerges out of the death throes of the anxiety.
Suffering can be redemptive. We learn more about ourselves in these hard periods. The differences between red and blue don’t seem as acute on the gurneys of the E.R., but the inequality in the world seems more obscene when the difference between rich and poor is life or death.
So, yes, this is a meaningful moment. And it is this very meaning that will inspire us and hold us together as things get worse. In situations like this, meaning is a vital medication for the soul.

Last night 26/03/2020 at 20.00 the people of the UK came out onto the streets to show there appreciation of our NHS .

The NHS has thanked the British public for an “emotional” display as the nation took part in a mass round of applause for health workers on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis.
The health service’s official Twitter page carried the message “that was emotional” along with a blue heart following the incredible scenes all across the UK on Thursday night.
Up and down the country, members of the public put their hands together for the salute to NHS staff and others who have been battling the Covid-19 pandemic.

ABBA Ring Ring

I was sitting by the phone
I was waiting all alone
Baby by myself I sit and wait and wonder about you
It's a dark and dreary night
Seems like nothing's going right
Won't you tell me honey how can I go on here without you?

Yes I'm down and feeling blue
And I don't know what to do, oh-oh

Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
And I sit all alone impatiently
Won't you please understand the need in me
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?

You were here and now you're gone
Hey did I do something wrong?
I just can't believe that I could be so badly mistaken
Was it me or was it you?
Tell me, are we really through?
Won't you hear me cry and you will know that my heart is breaking

Please forgive and then forget
Or maybe darling better yet, oh-oh

Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
And I sit all alone impatiently
Won't you please understand the need in me
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Oh-oh, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?

So beautiful Drifter . I just had to complete it .
Pink Floyd . On the turning away .
It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known

Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord

Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside

Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

You bet China has developed a strong understanding of the blinking virus . As it started there . And they also had a great understanding of how to keep it a secret and cover it up for so long . Allowing it to get thus far out of hand . They say they are getting it under control . But how much of that can we believe . No doubt Don will be happy to go along with what Mr Ping has to say on the matter.
--------------------------------------- added after 42 hours

At last governments are coming forward to lay the blame for the Covid-19 epidemic directly at the feet of China .

Downing Street says China faces a 'reckoning' over the coronavirus and risks becoming a 'pariah state' as Boris Johnson faces pressure to scrap the Huawei deal
Boris Johnson’s allies turned on China over the coronavirus crisis yesterday, as Britain’s death toll from the epidemic reached four figures.
Ministers and senior Downing Street officials said the Communist state now faces a ‘reckoning’ over its handling of the outbreak and risks becoming a ‘pariah state’.
They are furious over China’s campaign of misinformation, attempts to exploit the pandemic for economic gain and atrocious animal rights record.

The Prime Minister, who now faces Cabinet calls to reverse his decision to let controversial Chinese firm Huawei build large parts of Britain’s new 5G telecoms network .

Ring of fire . Johnny Cash

Love is a burnin' thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burnin' ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

I fell into a burnin' ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burnin' ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

I fell into a burnin' ring of fire
I went down, down, down
And the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire
And it burns, burns, burns
The ring of fire, the ring of fire
The ring of fire, the ring of fire

I do hope that all this benevolence on behalf of our governments hasn't got any kind of a clause . Like its only a lone and we have to pay it back in the future . I know that these bailouts for businesses are only a lone . Somehow I really can't see the government just willy - nilly handing out billions of pounds / dollars . without getting some of it back . To all all my good friends in the USA . Please take care . Look after yourselves . Your death toll is rising by the day . Stay indoors and STAY WELL !!! . Ted the bare .

Yes its interesting to to see that for once the talk of the day is not how we will survive after brexit . Who is going to be the next president of the USA . The climate and environment threat and so on . We are all preoccupied with a new threat to society brought on by a tiny microscopic virus bug . So tiny that it can only be seen by specialist equipment . yet it has the power to take down nations . Its also interesting to see how humanity has reacted to this new threat . How communities, religions and nations have come together and rallied round to help one another . And how governments and leaders are dealing with the situation . It will also be interesting to see how we all come through this . I do hope it will make us stronger and closer . And more tolerant of others now that the whole world is staring death in the face .

In the UK we can go outside to exercise . Go shopping and the like . But we are "advised" . And I stress ADVISED to not get closer than two meters to each other . Not to gather in crowds . Not to go to pubs clubs and theatres . At the moment the government are stopping short of bringing in any kind of curfew or making it an offence as they have not got the man force in the policing to implement it . But they can! and will arrest anyone that has got the virus and has not self isolated themselves .

Ha Ha
That was a reference to the film Stir crazy . With Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor .

You will have to get yourself a nice plump pillow to snuggle into and start singing "Down in the valley" . See if that helps
Talking about "Stir crazy" this lot should be doing time.

Coronavirus: Police make three arrests after finding stolen toilet rolls in van

Police found stolen toilet rolls in a van .
Police have arrested three people after stolen toilet paper was discovered in a van amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Essex Police's Operational Support Group stopped the vehicle after receiving a tip-off.
When they opened the back of the van they found several bundles of toilet roll and a microwave.
Toilet paper has been hard to find in supermarkets during the COVID-19 outbreak because customers have been hoarding them.
I can understand the toilet rolls . But what's your guess re the microwave ??? . perhaps to heat the loo rolls prior to use . Your answers below . Stupid ones a must .

Crikey Moses! . What a hairy bugger . What size are the flies in the USA .? . You would need buckets loads to feed that . Or I suppose they live on birds and small creatures . If I had one would it understand commands like sit and go fetch my slippers .



By Ted-E-Bare at 20,Mar,20 20:00
Yes done all that . Cleaning out . sorting out . sodding about . Going to the shops to gaze at the empty shelves . And spending time waiting for an item I ordered from a seller in the USA . On 09/03/2020 . It Left Manchester NH USA on 10/03/2020 . Arrived Stansted UK 11/03/2020 . Then sat in a warehouse in Castle Donington for six days . For what bugger knows . Then I get a message to say its out for delivery . Followed by another message to say Due to global health events beyond our control, your package is being held for delivery at a later date. Its a bloody stick of wood . its not like its a health risk and needed quarantining . Like a dog or a flea bitten moggy . I reckon UPS where retaining it . Waiting for the stock market to somehow recover so they could slap a bigger customs duty on it .Anyway it arrived today 20/03/2020 WOO FRIGGING PEE. A Spider as a pet nah , to many eyes and legs for me . I want something I can sit on my lap and feed it the leftovers from my plate . Or in my case feed myself from the left overs from its plate . As there's nowt to buy in the shops .

I think the logic is . The ones that have to go into work can wear casual clothing . Then they can get the impression they are working from home . That way everyone can think there doing there bit to keep the country free from the ravages of COVID 19 .

Johnny Mathis
Until the twelfth of never

You ask how much I need you, must I explain?
I need you, oh, my darling, like roses need rain
You ask how long I'll love you; I'll tell you true:
Until the twelfth of never, I'll still be loving you

Hold me close, never let me go
Hold me close, melt my heart like April snow

I'll love you till the bluebells forget to bloom;
I'll love you till the clover has lost its perfume
I'll love you till the poets run out of rhyme
Until the twelfth of never and that's a long, long time
Until the twelfth of never and that's a long, long time

Here in the UK the government say they are not going to close schools and colleges just yet . as it will only put thousands of kids on the streets , and have more chance of spreading Covid-19 . And also who is going to look after them if families have to isolate themselves .Also they say this thing is going to be with us for quite a while . Much more than three weeks . I think at the moment the government is taking the softly softly approach to this ( But getting a lot of flack for it ) . Up to now our shop shelves seem to be well stocked with the essentials (even the ubiquitous lavatory paper) So we will have to see how things pan out won't we

Simon and Garfunkel .
Sound of silence .

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
Within the sound of silence

Perfect day . Lou Reed .

Just a perfect day
Drink Sangria in the p@rk
And then later
When it gets dark, we go home

Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the z00
Then later
A movie, too, and then home

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It's such fun

Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was
Someone else, someone good

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

As time goes by

You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss,
A sigh is just a sigh, the fundamental things apply,
As time goes by . . .

An' when two lovers woo, they still say "I love you,"
On that you can rely, no matter what the future brings,
As time goes by . . .

Moonlight an' love songs never out of date,
Hearts full of passion, jealousy an' hate,
Woman needs man and man must have his mate,
That no one can deny . . .

It's still the same old story, a fight for love an' glory,
A case of do or die, the world will always welcome lovers,
As time goes by . . .

It's still the same old story, a fight for love an' glory,
A case of do or die, the world will always welcome lovers,
As time goes by . . .

I think there is only one for the blokes . Its called "Manspreading" . Just sit there with a stupid look on your face . And see how wide you can go .



By Ted-E-Bare at 11,Mar,20 04:04


Are you sitting comfortably . How do you sit . Or are you that buggered what others think of seeing your next weeks washing .???

Position A
People who sit like this are very creative and charismatic. They’re spontaneous and don’t think too long about the decisions they make. This can cause some trouble every now and then, but their natural charm will help them out of a sticky situation. These people view life as an adventure and are open to new experiences. They’re also very popular and easily make new friends, although many of these relationships are fleeting.
Position B
People who sit in this position are true dreamers. They have a rich imagination and can completely lose themselves in a daydream. They’re very empathetic and can easily make contact with other people, but they sometimes put themselves in the background because of this. They are very good listeners and are strongly in touch with their own feelings.
Position C
These are chaotic people who have a lot of trouble concentrating and sitting still. Their minds are always moving and they often speak before thinking about the impact of their words. They’re easily bored and have a short attention span. They shine most in a fast environment with loads of stimuli. In relationships they can quickly become disinterested as well, and they need someone who can push back.
Position D
These are often very smart people who are good rational thinkers. They’re punctual, neat and orderly. Their homes are often squeaky clean and neat, and everything has its own proper place. They’re a little reserved and won’t quickly reveal everything about themselves. Yet they are very honest and don’t like to gossip. They remain calm in every situation and don’t easily lose perspective.
Position E
These people are very goal-oriented and value their careers a lot. They place importance on setting ambitious goals for themselves and are not satisfied with less. On a personal level they also like to set goals, for example when it comes to health and love. They’re very perfectionist about everything, including their own appearance. This sometimes causes them to lose sight of what they already have because they’re always aspiring for more.

"End of the World"
Brenda Lee . And many more have sung this song .

Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
'cause You don't love me any more,

Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love

I wake up in the morning' and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, No
I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does

Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye

Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye
Goodbye

Paul Young - Every time You Go Away


Hey!, if we can solve any problem
Then why do we lose so many tears
Oh, and so you go again
When the leading man appears
Always the same thing
Can't you see, we've got everything goin' on and on and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Go on and go free, yeah
Maybe you're too close to see
I can feel your body move
It doesn't mean that much to me
I can't go on sayin' the same thing
Just can't you see, we've got everything do you even know we know

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you, oh
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

I can't go on sayin' the same thing
'Cause baby, can'tcha see, we've got everything goin' on and on and on

Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you

Looking at the pieces (Every time you go away)
Be careful (You take a piece of me with you)
(Every time you go away) Every time you go, every time you go
(You take a piece of me with you) You take a piece of me!
(Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you) Every time you go!
