    We both enjoy a drink and the units consumption had climbed somewhat. We weren't getting inebriated if that's what you took 'caning it' to mean.

    I am following the latest advice, and I am using a hydro-alcoholic solution every day.

    It was nothing to do with Brexit or now Coronavirus, but I have always had a tendency to stockpile and my wife has often asked, "Why do you need so much toilet roll and so many tins of food, and so much pasta and rice?" She's been very quiet about it lately.

    We don’t stock pile, but we do keep enough stock of things like that for a few weeks.
    We often don’t have time to go shopping if we go away for a weekend.

    Consider this:

    If 80% of us [the young, and reasonably young/fit, with good immune systems] are liable to come through this virus relatively unscathed, by merely experiencing light flu symptoms, as has largely been the case so far, with only the older and more vulnerable 20% at real risk of succumbing to this virus, then why are we stopping the 80% majority from going about their normal business?

    If this isn't about deliberately causing panic by instilling FEAR in people, in order to manipulate their behaviour as outlined, then shouldn't we instead be cocooning the vulnerable 20%, and giving them all the support we can (if we really cared about them/the old), whilst allowing the remaining 80% majority to function as normal...?

    Just sayin'

    Just been to Waitrose and Tesco. All the usuals have gone - loo rolls, kitchen rolls, all tins, all frozen food, all bread, all veg and fruit but also worrying was that there was no beer at all, just (literally) a handful of cans of 'craft beer'. I don't drink much but do enjoy a beer with my dinner and now that's gone..

    Nightmare, Dave... For me, with the current madness in supermarkets, this is the time to use small independents.

    This morning we received from our local dairy, along with our usual bottled fresh orange juice and milk, free-range eggs, Welsh butter, bread and some superb quality fresh fruit and veg, which they source from a local farm, so good in fact was the latter that we intend getting it delivered regularly! I even got some nice bacon chops from them, which I'll be having for my tea tonight

    Plus, we phoned our local butcher earlier and ordered some lamb and pork chops, fillet steak, steak pies and sausages, which we're just off to collect (thus avoiding waiting in queues), along with a fresh chicken - all achieved, stress-free, without going near a supermarket!

    So, along with all the tins and dried food we've got in (plus toiletries), which is plentiful, we've got enough stuff in now to last us ages... In these mad times folks, the message is: support your local independents!

    Marco.

    hotel in highlands has sacked its staff and flung them onto the street at no notice.. Owned by Britannia Hotels apparently.... the unacceptable side of capitalism.
