If you weren't on OOF, Twitter, or Facebook and didn't watch telly or get a newspaper, you might not realise anything strange is going on to be honest.  ::)
Except for the lack of stuff in the supermarket.

.. and a commute blissfully free of dawdling, excessively risk-averse VW drivers. :y

For some reason I'm not entirely sure why, I'm on the key worker list. WTF. I mean, really???

Its probably because the millennials will get suicidal if arsebook is unavailable.
Turn it off quick, then. :y

Somehow, by the grace of God, managed to avoid ramming 3 different Mercs up the arse at high speed on 3 different occasions.

I assume mirrors are as rare an option as BMW orange bulbs.

No, it's just that most of the drivers are occupied wondering where the timing advance lever on the steering wheel went to. ;D

It's less depressing than the awful reality show called "life" at the moment?
Man up! Don't live inside your tellybox or the internet, take a look outside, life is pretty normal.
Get out in the garage and give the kit car a good seeing to.

Yep, the roads are nice and clear at the moment. Had an errand to run near that woke .. wok. ngham Reading place earlier, and was able to give the Jag a real work out on the way home. :D

But how will Mrs TB social distance herself from you ?
As she is now having to WFH, I banished her to the dining room, even though there is a spare desk in my home office.  Can't be dealing with her antagonising me all day ;D

We won't miss the dining room table, seeing as for the last few weeks, we having been able to use it due to being a storage area for 4 of my RC planes ;D

Dining room tables aren't really for dining anyway, except at Christmas, maybe. :y

I've decided to social distance myself from you lot. Mainly because you all smell.

True enough. Mrs. KW's spicy veggie stew is the culprit, I suspect. ::)

I have spend the evening dangling enough monitors around my desk that I can WFH for a while. ;D

pretty sure you can "mot" in any eu country

I had a Portuguese contractor working for me probably 10 years ago. He'd been in the UK for a couple of years with his Portuguese registered LHD Seat when I asked him how he got on getting it MOT'd here. I got a blank look in response. ;D I explained the details and advised him to get one booked just in case. They turned him away because the number plate wasn't "on the system, mate", so he never did bother. Nobody ever pulled him over. ;D

Apparently Trump took the coronavirus test and allegedly it was negative.  :)

Sure it wasn't an IQ test?

Don't think that bit of fencing will stop them. :)
If they move stuff to get on common land, it becomes trespass, and the ol' bill can move them on straight away. If they don't, you have to go through a 3 week legal process to move the scum on. Same applies to footpaths etc

That's why you are currently getting farmers parking scrap cars across all the gateways.

I know a lass who works for an adjoining County Council, in Gypsy Services.  This whole department is not about assisting the pikeys, but moving the lazy, disgusting, thieving pikeys on. So even more tax payers money. Great.

Unless one of them is pregnant or has health issues, in which case they can't move them regardless of who's land they are on. the wooden fences won't do a thing, they'll claim it was already broken.

We had the same situation at the park behind us a couple of years ago, was a nightmare and cost us - the council tax payer to get the place cleaned up.... aparently smearing dogshit all over the childrens play area is acceptable as we have to understand that they can't help their behaviour.

Anyway, what seems to keep them out is big ditches and mounds.

As I found out at my previous employer, the only way to move them on is to jam their Sky TV signal. :-X

Sadly, they didn't take the human excrement they dropped on the car park with them.

Also, let us remind them that it's OUR money they are spending, not theirs.

Ah, but people who like the sound of their own voice believe that making it 30 minutes quicker to Manchester (other Northern cities are irrelevant as our state Broadcaster only cares about Manchester) - not that Phase 2 from Lichfield to Manchester will ever get built, will make people commute 6hrs a day to work in London, at 200 a day, not including the 200 taxpayers will fund for each ticket.

Yeah, I struggle to see how making it marginally easier to commute to London is going to help the North. Only thing it might do is make their houses as unaffordable as the shoe boxes in the South East. ::)

Still, now we haven't got a regional airline any more... ::)

I suppose this means I should work from home more. If that's possible, seeing as I use any excuse to avoid Bletchley ;D

Yeah, not been WFH in the 9 months I've been at the new company, but, I now have a cold, so am currently trying to find my desk in the study because paranoia. It's here somewhere under all the bits of radio, bits of car, bits of paper... ::)

Oh, hang on! I've just spotted some wood!  :y

I'm pretty sure there's a tree growing inside one of the Jags.. that lot is fit for nothing more than beanz tinz, sadly!

Having seen yours I hate to think how much clearance there is around the wiring loom grommets in those. ;D

A high light of Newent was the late night log chopping ....  ;D  ;D ;D

I do have very vague recollections of a later Newent meet .....  :-[ :-[ :-[

Ooh! And I've got a chainsaw I can bring this time. :D
Wasn't a wildly swinging axe not enough for you?

Just call me Eugene. :D
