I’m not worried enough by coronavirus (not worried at all, actually) to start taking extra precautions. Reasons? I’m already past the “span of a man” at three score years and eleven, so wouldn't be losing all that much if I were to peg it. And, there are a lot worse things to die of (thinking cancer or MS, or any number of horrible drawn-out ways to die) than a relatively quick one like flu - losing my marbles and ending up in nappies in a care home like my pore 'ole mum, for one. Anyway, some thousands of people die of ordinary seasonal flu every year. I might be one of them :roll:

There’s a polish saying that roughly translates as “If you were born to be hanged, then you won't drown”. But that's just me. If I was young, with family & kids depending on my life, it would of course be a different matter.

For now, so far, so good eh!

I've ordered my mini grappling hook and am now thinking of ways to use it - best idea so far is to swing it about my head in the hope of fending off dribby, snotty folk :-bd

whilst there is a risk there is also a need for 24 hour a day sensationalist media to have a story for few weeks
For example 5 live does a phone from 9-10 [ I switch it off] and this week its been on the virus each day.
If/when it becomes a pandemic and dangerous I will give it some thought till then no.

I did my first panic buy last night tbf. £96 of tins, cat food, bog roll etc. Probably do another run tomorrow and that should do it. Aiming to have about 10 weeks worth of food in the house. :cool:

When supply chains have broken down in a few weeks any Boners are welcome to drop me a pm and ride round to mine for half a tin of spaghetti hoops. :cool:

Oh, and Fray Bentos chicken????? Are they seriously still in business?! I remember when (*) the height of sophistication was an FB chicken and mushroom pie. Maybe it still is where Andy lives :smile: .

That's quite an eclectic list there actually. I'm quite taken with the deodorant purchase. Mmmm, got to smell nice as I set fire to the petrol-filled moat :smile: .

The cat is going to catch food for us both if my own stocks eventually run out Reg,

And I've got a feeling that Fray B's are a clear indicator of panic buying so I'm only going to get one or two at once, lest anyone becomes suspicious.

:lol:

Contemplating further, my post of Feb 14th re prepping and viruses was obviously a sight more prescient than I thought at the time. We've changed BDS's forum name to HOTT so I think I'm next with 'Nostradamus'....

If I were you :shock: I’d predict rain, with your history it would almost certainly be correct.
