Itís our ďblame cultureĒ nothing new, just a new excuse.

I wish I could do more to help others, but locally options seem limited.

Talking of helping others, Janet is feeding people with spare eggs. Neighbours have fetched medicines for me and have helped Janet with gardening and with mucking out donkeys.

Sadly the anti-China language as been dripped fed in to the conversation in many countries by people who should know better.

I have a neighbour whos daughters work at the local Asda, so she managed to get me some of Asda's own porridge, which for some reason they don't sell on their own site and is nearly gone immediately off the shelves when they open the store.

One thing Iíve been concentrating on is saying a specially sincere Ďthank youí, to all the various delivery people.   Supermarket deliveries obviously, but even just the Postie deserves recognition for carrying on working, imho.

The Parcel Force driver yesterday commented that heís completely overrun with deliveries yet most people either just take him for granted, or are rude to him if heís late or if packaging is the slightest bit damaged.   :'(

These guys and gals are whatís keeping us all going right now...

Maybe criticism should be directed at the Chinese authorities, who let the grim Ďwet marketsí continue. But thatís not the same as the Chinese people in general.i read a report that said some people in the USA were murdered because they were thought to be Chinese.

Goats are taking advantage of empty streets in Llandudno.

We have wild goats every day, on the main road at Cinn t-Sŗile at the head of Loch Dýthaich. I worry about them getting mixed up with the cars. Those Llandudno goats are beautiful.

That was on the BBC TV news last night.  :D

While we are talking animals, I asked my daughter if she had seen any changes it the primates she looks after in the Zoo and she has noticed the Chimps are very quite and seemed to be missing the public, but the Orangutan seems more happy because he does not like people (few weeks ago because some children were banging on his window he pulled a heavy metal feeding device off the wall and smashed his window  :o ).

Thatís awful if people were hassling him. Need cctv in his enclosure maybe and soundproofed double layer glass window. I absolutely love orang-utans and gorillas. I hope to god primates canít get COVID-19 from humans.

Not sure the goats have much to do with Covid-19, BBC ran a similar story about Llandudno goats a year ago...

They do come into the town in bad weather, but on this occasion it seems they're taking advantage because of the deserted streets.
I blame the nanny state.  ;D
