    Which Mobility Car

    There is a lot of knowledge amongst us, I exclude myself.

    The COVID 19 is dominating the news:

    How worried should we be?

    Will this be Spanish flu proportions or just another contained outbreak as SARS and MERS were?

    Oh – and when will we start to see ‘Just in time’ manufacturing suffer?

    All the larger food stores in our area are now following a “one out one in system”, the stores are empty but the car parks are full of people chating.

    Makes no sense.

    On a more worrying note I have a sore throat, a pounding headache and a cough. I hope its the flu, I’ve never said that before.

    Strange times.

    @brydo  I hope it’s just a 24 man cold and nothing else my friend. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks Joss I hope so too.

    Winston pops in and out of the forum, so hopefully it is just one of those occasions when he is busy doing other things. It would be good to hear he is ok though.

    In 2005 I suffered a brain injury which has left me with mental and physical disabilities.
    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    I stay not too far from the factory wigwam so we still have them in the stores, my personal favourite from tunnocks is the “Carmel wafer”, I keep them in the fridge, fantastic.

    If your ever up this kneck of the woods pop into tunnocks shop and try an apple tart, I swear they are fantastic.

    Mike not as big as you would think, they added a large extension a few years ago and I think it works 24/7. Mr Tunnock still runs it, not sure what age he is now. He drives about in his old Rolls Royce and is a well respected member of the community.

    Someone was saying on the tv that this virus may go on into 2021 if you as they say you cannot go out only for shopping then we are paying for a motability that we cannot use that’s a lot of money wasted which is a great shame and not only that the batteries will go flat we just do not know whats going to happen and i was really looking forward to getting out at some point but i am in isolation at this time.

    As bad as things are just now and hopefully it gets better however I like many fear the next winter or as soon as September arrives though hope that the current measures make that less of a daunting prospect.

    Assuming that once we’ve had the virus we become immune then it will last until everyone’s been exposed to it.  Given the general population are unlikely to put up with this isolation for more than a month and post viral tests should be available for everyone by then, I reckon it will be over and done with by June.

    As an optimist and a disbeliever in the media hype, that’s my plan, anyway!
