    • I thought the suggestion was that LDN was going to be 'socially shut down' fairly soon, no?Nairn

    I KNEW I should've taken a photo with another bin in frame so you can see the numbers are actually done that way!

    I've highlighted the ADT 'security alarm' and, usefully, some fairly impressive dog eggs.

    Because I'm infected with 'ciao' I often use it in emails when I see that the client is Italian, which I did on an enquiry earlier.

    Said potential client just phoned up to confirm the order and said her name and I'm profoundly confused because she's clearly 110% Indian, haha. I'm guessing she's married an Italian and her forename is one of those that could as well be Indian as European.

    • Lol... I use buongiorno a lot here, but my only connection with Italia is that I own a FiatOBBTKN

    Coronavirus

    A baffled world is watching as the US is overrun by COVID-19 infections and deaths — with no end in sight.

    Political leaders in countries across the world are baffled as the US, once seen as a superpower, struggles to get the coronavirus outbreak under control.

    Across 13 countries including Canada, Australia, and Spain, the US has been viewed in the most negative light over the past year, and they are especially critical of the US's handling of the pandemic.

    The disapproval goes beyond the pandemic and extends to the actions taken by President Donald Trump.

    Some officials told The New York Times that Trump's rhetoric and actions are eroding democracy globally.

    I found out that I lost the job I was on, prior to covid, because the company wants to diversify. I was told they hired someone else and didn’t bring me back based ‘solely on the color of their skin’ (direct quote). I have to say, it was a real sword to the chest, especially after being unemployed for six months and blasting through any savings I had.
