These are crimes against humanity - and should be treated as such.
Also saw on news the state of the economy is not good in US..I had some long term small investment in UK stocks on the ftse oh well have to wait years for it to bounce back, it is long term investment.

How long do you think Todt will hang on to keep being FIA chief,I think he should have retired sometime ago, he looks terrible there.
Meanwhile Jean Todt is already "75" (I forgot that too)
I'm pretty sure at that age I look worse !
If we make it with that damn virus..

But he has more money... That matters my friend !

Even money doesn't help Todt or anyone for that matter with no vaccine available yet at his age the risk is more and looks as if he has psoriasis of skin so has to be extra careful.
With lockdown eased here we can now actually travel anywhere (so long as it's not hundreds of miles) to keep fit even to the seaside my friend though I think for the moment we'll keep within our boundaries..just thinking of all the crowds converging at seaside spots. Some resorts like Blackpool have begged people to stay away as it would overwhelm their public services with the sudden influx of visitors.

Very well said -
Although our govts may say you can travel now, or go into restaurants, etc there is NO WAY we would go to our favorite tavern in Gig Harbor for fish & chips and a pint with hundreds of people.

A report yesterday said the normal amount of exhaled droplets that leave your mouth are increased 10X when you talk louder which causes more droplets to be spewed out because restaurants and bars are noisy and you must talk louder to be heard.

My friends - there are seaside destinations in Washington state that have stated they will not allow tourists until further notice.

Good afternoon Racerbruce and thanks for putting that important information on.
The only way it could work is if people wore those perspex lids in restaurants and bars, would look hilarious I know and at the correct angle would be far safer but there are always some thick bozos that would move it completely out the way and be a threat to others.

Well said - I can see someone forgetting they were wearing a perspex lid and attempt to take a drink or a bite and slam it into the face shield!

Or, the fish & chips stuck to the clear face shield and beer running down the shield would be the first clue there was a problem

Good morning my friend, it's good to know that there's 'no evidence of flatulence alone posing a risk of cv-19 transmission'. Thank goodness...we have enough to worry about.

"Spa-Francorchamps" agreed for a organistion (race) without spectators .
Last word must come from the FIA and the Belgian Muppet Show .

Personally I don't have much hope while I think about the damn virus...

Indeed - we love this bread - very wholesome and healthy. And of course, the potato chips are the 40% less fat version....
