Good morning all as we enter day 7 only a third of the "official" call for lockdown.

I do get the impression that the more serious side of communication is coming to the fore as the jokes start to drop away.

We are now getting cases where we actually know the people rather than just watching number charts.

My son in law went for a quick shop this morning and definitely less people venturing out in this area.
We hope the dustbin truck arrives this morning and again consider all the people in emergency services (medical, shops, police, army etc)
Trying to work normally under these circumstances to help keep us alive 😒

Looking at the play list and one of my favourite bands; this morning its
Fleetwood Mac
Difficult to select so have posted 2
Songbird and landslide.
Again both appropriate.

Week 1 was the incubation period.
From now the symptoms will start showing. Stay extra safe. This is a critical time.

Staying inside, cleaning yourself and practicing social distancing?
Congratulations- you have become a house cat!

Its now day 8
Plus its FRIDAY and TGIF does not to make a difference this week.
We would normally be planning a trip to pub with friends and live music.

Never mind looking forward to a nice family braai.

Plenty confusion about racings future and that was without the virus.
To be honest plenty confusion about everything on the planet?
The song for the day is not from my actual playlist but is probably a good call?

Ps very worried about my drinks stock, poor planning to blame.
You must be aware that staying at home you consume more and we need new hinges for fridge door !!

I ventured out for the first time yesterday to replenish provisions. My local PnP is a 1/2 km from my home. 9 cars and 2 taxis on the road. About 20 customers and low stocks. People are certainly heeding the lockdown.

Dave's daily play list got me to go through my vinyls. Today will be Eric Burdon and The Animals( Winds of Change), The Who(Live at Leeds) and Blood Sweat and Tears( Child is Father to the Man). My wife and I will again reminisce about the good old days in Braamfontein and Hillbrow.

Later I will repack my tool box.

It plays the song that was Number One on the day you were born. And, if there is a video available with the artist, it will play it for you. This is really a fun site. Enjoy the show. click on below.

My idea of "help from above" is a sniper on the roof
and a higher power is a hell fire missile armed drone.

Morning all and its day 9, almost on double figures so lets think positive.

Saturday normally a big sporting day, we have or had racing from Australia so could be a long day.

A song from the playlist is when i was a mod, lambretta and all, join along to get us upbeat for the weekend.

It is bucketing down in the East Rand. Hats off to my newspaper delivery chap. He hasnt missed a day. My wife packed a hamper for him and he was over the moon. Brought tears to my eyes.

My birthday song is Sin(Its No Sin) by Eddy Howard and his Orchestra. its about a guy whose loved one left him. Not so in my case. The wife and I have been together for 47 years. Thanks Bob for the reference to the site. It is fun.

A big Shout ( thanks Dave) to the Clan and their loved ones in these trying times.

Great post - thanks Kitkat B)

Just a thought on the lock-down - I (like many) expect this to continue beyond the 21 days - but hopefully 'they' will fine-tune the restrictions - the wife went out to the local SPAR to replenish some 'essentials'; could buy some insect repellent for house -hold use - and some stuff for the pool (which looks like a swamp with all the rain) - but nothing for the garden (which resembles a jungle) - how stupid is that :angry: Surely if one goes to a specific shop, it makes no sense to have certain items in the shop fenced off (ok alcohol debatable) - but stuff like clothes, braai utensils etc etc ..... Really ?

Just my point of view regarding this highly unusual time. Has the world response not been significantly blown out of proportion? With the latest fatality rate calculated at 0.66 percent, in places like RSA where over a 100 people are killed every single day due to crime and road accidents, where is the sense in destroying the economy and countless small businesses and jobs?

Why not just focus all resources on the vulnerable, ie the aged and sickly?

And let everyone else return to the business of earning a living.

This all seems very drastic and short sighted, in my opinion.

Sit comfortably and feel calm.You should be able to complete all 3 tests within 30 seconds or even less.


1. Find the letter C from below. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO



2. If you have already found the letter C, now find the digit 6 from below. 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999969999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999



3. Now find the letter N from below. It's a little more difficult. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM





If you are able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having Alzheimer Disease. Congratulations !!! If you need to re look, that may be an early sign of an aging brain....... And its not a joke. . . . . . There is C, 6, and N in those crowdy lines. Keep healthy and a wishing you all a bright day ahead...🌝🌝🌝 Please take this test. You'll be surprised how many won't be able to find it even after multiple attempts
