THESE TRYING TIMES

If the lockdown continues for some time I might have a go on a section of this which is asking for help with digitisation of old british rainfall records. It looks as if it needs careful work.

Many small breweries are trying to survive by providing a home delivery service so, if you can, please place your beer orders with them. For example, the Beat Brewery at Lye delivered to me today [Free as I am within range]. By the way, their beers are quite dazzling. Many others are doing a similar thing so have a look at your local microbrewery website or FB page.
Could start a trend or revive an old favourite. Remember Davenports Beer at Home? Hope these small breweries keep it up after Covid has gone away.

The majority of people are fickle as far as shopping is concerned - money talks. Once this emergency is over I doubt it would take long for the super markets to oust the smaller people with all their hype and 'bargains'. Deliveries are one thing a permanent business is another. A pity, but that is the way of the present day world.

I know ladies love to visit their hairdressers as often as they can. I expect most are shut presently, but this enterprising lady in Holland believes she has the answer. :laughing:

Today we are feeling a little better and sat outside. Closed my eyes and savoured the strong smell of manure, no noise pollution and the sound of a wood pecker. I've tried looking for it to take a picture but it remains illusive. Maybe it's following government guidelines and only coming out for essential exercise.
