  1. I Googled the worldwide coronavirus cases this morning. If the figures for the Isle of Man are correct, you have 29 confirmed cases and so far, no deaths. I hope nobody on the island dies from this awful virus.

    Manx Tunnel

    There's been a lot of talk, particularly before the General Election of the possibility of constructing a bridge between Northern Ireland and Scotland. It's met with a lot of criticism not just because of the expense involved but the difficulties in building on top of the Beaufort Dyke and with it all the munitions packed shipwrecks that lie there. Over the past couple of weeks, attitudes have changed from a bridge to the construction of a tunnel. But the Isle of Man isn't expected to be a part of that, if it ever got underground.
  3. Here am I refusing plastic bags and cutting back on groceries packaged in plastic containers. Then this happens.
  4. From what I've read about Greta in terms of her environmental concerns. She wants - No more building any buildings - of any description. Universal veganism. All fossil fuels to remain in the ground, where she says they belong. Don't buy or wear any new clothes and to remain within planetary boundaries.
  5. I thought I'd share this with the birthplace of the R.N.L.I. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-northern-ireland-49856159/rnli-photography-jack-lowe-photographs-uk-s-lifeboat-stations
  6. I've just watched Stan and Ollie on DVD. It was marvellous. I don't like Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge but I think he was born for the role as Stan Laurel. I found both of Stan & Ollie's wives, Lucille and Ida somewhat annoying. They could've formed their own double act - Munchkin and Meerkat. Laurel & Hardy perform their number 1 hit single "The Lonesome Pine". Locally, Norman Wisdom's name is mentioned twice.
  7. Same here. Running MS Edge on Windows 10 OS
  8. If any Syrian refugees do land on the island, in all probability they'll moan that what you give them by way of housing just isn't good enough. https://www.irishnews.com/news/northernirelandnews/2018/07/31/news/syrian-refugees-speak-of-housing-problems-and-racist-attacks-in-west-belfast-1395013/
  9. I apologize profusely for submitting an article from the Daily Wail. But you're not the only island population to court such a controversy. Remote Scottish island? One can see the place from Wemyss Bay. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3366575/Senseless-Syrian-refugees-foisted-remote-Scottish-island-high-unemployment-poverty-given-perks-locals-don-t-enjoy.html
