Good to hear :)
One sure sign of the decline of a civilisation is the inability to reproduce the technological achievments of its past

Good to hear you are both getting over it. Question if i may , has it been determined how you contracted the virus?

No.We simply realised the symptoms .Sunday morning Mrs J. started coughing like a machine gun firing.Went on for 12 hours. I had an intermittent cough,and we both had a high temperature at various times.That came in 'waves' if that makes sense? Also aching legs at times. Feel great now.

We could have got it anywhere.The idea of Social Distance MUST be taken seriously by the population at large. My job brought me into a lot of close contact with customers,as did Jan,as a teacher - children are infectious little beasts at the best of times! :lol: That is the !ikely source.

We will not get tested in any way either. The 111 NHS,was clear about symptoms and procedures.As Jan was first to show,she has to go 7 days ( next Sunday) with NO high temperature.The cough can persist,without being infectious for several weeks though.After I had registered her,the next bit was ' anyone living with you?' Yeah,me! So I have to go to a week next Sunday to be,absolutely certain.I had to download an Isolation Note ( which is basically a sick note), for my gaffer and email it to him.

If you get it mild,it's actually not that bad.It's the poor devils that get the serious problems I feel for.

Post on our village community council group on FB last night saying the village has several people ill at home and one in hospital seriously ill. This is from Wiki about our village :
"The village comprises some 150 dwellings, spread over a geographical area of around 50 square miles (130 km2), most of which is moorland. "
How on earth did we get it so fast and so easily :shock:

It will only take one person to have come in from out of town...

First person in my town to die of coronavirus was two days ago, an 82 year old man with complications. And yesterday, when I was out for my single walk, I saw an ambulance drawn up outside a house two streets away from me. Nothing in the local paper's website today, and it could be many things, of course, but .... watching and waiting. The slot for my supermarket delivery, booked 9 days ago and the last one there, has arrived today - I'm emptying the "porch" (no inner doorway) of anything absorbent as much as possible, and setting up a dunking system at the door, instead of carrying it through to the kitchen as I used to.

The order itself is interesting: I got an email cancelling maybe a dozen items, so I went online to top up with other stuff - which was basically anything I could get. Yesterday, I got *another* email, cancelling more items, about £40 worth - but when I tried to top it up again, I couldn't even log in, by the website or the app. Mind you, this will be fine now, I'm happy to have got more green leafy veg in, thats the main thing. I won't even try to shop again till the peak has well passed. I'll probably get sprouting again too (seeds, not me :lol: ).
