    Re: Corona Virus

    This got me wondering how COVID deaths are counted in the USA and I found this article from Scientific Amercian


    ETA: For a comparison across countries, this Economist article has charts and...
  2. Re: Laurel Canyon Official Trailer | History of the Eagles and the Hippie Portrait

    Thanks for the link to the interview with Bernie. My favourite line: "When I was in my twenties, people that were talking about what went on 50 years ago were talking about World War I."

    Re: Corona Virus

    I'm beginning to feel more optimistic. I believe in science. Perhaps we'll get a vaccine but even if we don't, our doctors and scientists are learning more about the disease and its complications and...

    Re: RIP John Prine

    I'd nver hear of John Prine and to me he was just another 70-something who had died of Covid 19. Just a number, not a person.

    Then this morning, I heard this on the radio and he became real to...

    Our summer holiday was cancelled today. I'm hoping to transfer the booking to June next year. From tomorrow, I'll be allowed to make day trips by car. Unfortunately, my car won't start as I've just...

    Re: Corona Virus

    There's an interesting research paper from an UK university looking at how effective different measures have been across Europe. The conclusions are that the most effective have been school closures,...

    Re: Corona Virus

    My guess is that most of the US figures have yet to be uploaded.

    I'm confused by the testing strategy in the UK. I think that anyone with symptoms who is either aged 65+ or goes out to work can...

    Re: Corona Virus

    Dreamer, I wish your family well. It's a scary time. The friends I thought were most vulnerable have had the virus and have come through without hospitalisation but still found it tough.

    That...

    Re: Corona Virus

    Wow! I've just read that the Trump administration is to wind down its coronavirus task force. If it is a war, it seems that Trump has chosen to surrender. Presumably this means he will leave it to...

    Re: Corona Virus

    I wonder if there is a way they can restrict the number of people arriving in seaside resorts. Opening the beaches should be ok so long as density is lower than usual.

    Here, parks and beaches are...

    Re: Corona Virus

    That's not too different from how it is here in the UK. We have "guidelines" rather than "rules" such that a daily walk might take an hour and that although we are allowed to drive to somewhere, the...

    Re: Celebration of "After Hours"!

    I'm a few days early for the anniversary.

    Like many, I have trouble sleeping recently. However, when it's really a problem, I play this album. With the light off and no distractions, I can really...

    Re: Corona Virus

    In the UK, the lockdown is still in place but, from today, hospitals will look to increase non-Covid treatments, starting with the most urgent such as cancer treatments. We're waiting to hear when...

    Re: Celebration of "Desperado"

    47 years? Can that be true? I bought it that year but may have had to wait until my birthday in August. I wasn't too sure about it to begin with but over the years, it became my favourite.

    Ah, those toilet rolls and hand wash. I think that has settled down over here, maybe because people have run out of storage space.

    I hope you are all keeping safe. It looks like you have...

    I just checked the pricing model for zoom and there is a free option for up to 100 participants with a time limit of 40 minutes per meeting. I expect the idea is to get people familiar with it so...

    That's really tough luck, Austin, but good that your doctor thinks it will heal without an operation.

    Yesterday, I took part in a yoga class over zoom. I didn't have my camera set up but maybe I'll be more brave next time. These are people who are used to seeing me in the flesh so it shouldn't scare...

    Re: Celebration of the "Solo Collection"

    I listened to it recently. I had to revert to using the CD player in the kitchen rather than internet radio and that's the CD that was already loaded. I do enjoy it.

    Certain Kind of Fool

    I have some reservations as the lyrics sum up the whole musician as outlaws theme. However, I don't really like the lead vocals - they are a little too strained and that makes...
