  1. The Corona Virus Thread

    Interesting reading all of this, including the political mayhem in the US, where the country has to battle not only Covid 19 but also the devastating Delta Tango virus which - it seems - is totally undermining the internal unity the country needs in those days.... I am not a religious person but at least my thoughts are with you. Over here - little village called Oegstgeest between Leiden and the coast in western Holland - political items are not on the agenda. The Prime MInister and his cabinet are widely supported, even by most of the opposition in parliament and by the public . Decisions are made based on the input of good and varied mixed teams of medical - and other scientists and experts and no cheap political games are played. The result is what we call an "intelligent shutdown" where everyone is asked to work and stay at home as much as possible, schools and universities only active online, restaurants and cafe's are except for take-away food, gatherings of more than 3 people are not allowed and so on, but a lot of shops are are open and public transport is operating.. And basically I am free to roam all through the country if I want to. We call it "The 1. 5 meter Society" ( the prescribed distance between people we should adhere to) and as a whole it seems to work, with declining numbers of people dying or taken into Intensive Care or hospital in other ways.. Just the same, when I look out of the window it's a "silent spring", but we're moving on... Good luck to all of you and stay safe !!!!! Grtz Derk

    Ha, ha, ha, Russo, I suppose you mean my daughters ?
  3. Stary in Krakow

    Alas....no time left for beers, Stary had to head of in the direction of the mountains for Xmas..... I would have bought them though, cause they are quite inexpensive, meaning that one earns money on every beer compared to drinking them at home.....
