Ah. I'm in a similar situation. The only shop where I can get Marmite is about 10 blocks away. Theoretically, we can be fined for moving more than two blocks from home without a jolly good reason so I ordered from Amazon too.
It was cheaper than the shop.
Bugger off.

Rejoined this place... Carlsson asked me to. Which was nice.

Matt Lucas just followed me on Twitter after some interaction involving Gideon Coe and our childhoods... (that is, mine and Gideon's).

Last night I performed in my neighbor's driveway (acoustic guitar/vocals). She is having a particular tough time as she's very social and she has a few underlying medical issues that puts her more at risk so she's pretty scared. Another neighbor came out as well so I had three ladies for an audience and later four. We were sitting six feet apart of course to keep our distance. In fact one of the songs I played was Keep Your Distance by Richard Thompson. :) The sun was going down, it was probably 70 degrees (F), a beautiful evening for a little diversion for Nancy.

I thought that airmail would be totally slowed right now, but those cards were sent really only a few days ago. I have sent stuff to you before that hasn't got there for what seems like weeks. Stuff I have sent Beebsy seems to operate in a time zone unlike anything I have ever known!

I never get anything on time! I don't know why. No such thing as one day delivery here either.

No. I haven't spoken to him since a party to mark the end of recording a season of WDY in about 1978(?). I don't listen to the radio and didn't realise that one of us had gone on to be a DJ. I was dimly aware of Gideon Coe, but hadn't made the connection. He follows me on twitter, but we don't interact much.

I woke up at 4am this morning and these three thoughts were whizzing round my head:

1. Surely it’s time for school curriculums to include very basic infection control information. I mean the sort of things that you learn outside of basic science subjects - things like what a vector is, modes of transmission, why gloves aren’t worth a shit of you don’t change them, that sort of thing. These sort of things are not difficult to learn and a basic grounding in them would really help people’s understanding of disease spread in the future at an early stage.

2. I wondered if more people will go into healthcare professions on the back of this. Or, less.

3. I wondered why more people are not interested in shaving their heads so that they can see what the skin on their head looks like, just the once.

During a YouTube trawl the other night I stumbled across this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqGe4V9obE8

which we watched last night. I can't get enough of researching Estonian heritage stuff and was really looking forward to it. Nothing prepared me for the poignancy and intimacy of this beautiful documentary which touched on so many aspects of the experience of those who flee war - and this documentary in particular mirrored my mother's experience in so many ways. Not only was the subject of this probably on my Mum's ship, I knew a few of the British people involved in it. It's only about 46 minutes long and I urge you to watch, but be prepared for tears.

Some guy without a shirt on just cycled past our house with a stereo system on the back pumping out Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’

Last night around twilight there was a Good Humor ice cream truck stopped on the street in front of my house for ten minutes, with its "bells" going the whole time. Weird, as I don't think there are any kids on this stretch of my (dead end) street. There were some trees between me and the truck so I couldn't quite see what was going on; at one point I thought maybe he had been pressed into service delivering groceries, but... ten minutes??

I can tell you that his "bells" were playing the most insane non-stop medley of melodies - LOTS of xmas tunes, plus "Dixie", "Waltzing Matilda", "My Darling Clementine", "Rhythm Of The Rain", "Love Is Blue", and many many more! (And if you order now, you'll also receive...)
