Hi Mr Track, that is really sad news, it shows it's best to keep away from Doctors, and hospital, if one can.

Good to know you are all ok there by the sea.
Bob

Sounds a lot batter than us yet, as think we have about 3000 dead and around 500 in every 24 hrs,.

Good you are staying in as much as you can, and use a mask.

Bob and also we here are using latex gloves, when going out, or to uee when anything comes in.

May be a idea for you there too, Bob asked if you have a lock down, from what you say looks like you have not.

no lock down wish there was one too many idiots just walking around like there was nothing wrong. most of our states cases are along the turnpikes probably due to people traveling to work out of state.

Thank you for the info Carly Guy, it's really good news that your state has very few, and really hope it will stay that way.

As you say this is the time for your state to lock down and stop it.

We here did things much to late really

It will be well over 3000 lives lost in UK today

Here today the small shops have footprints on the floor for standing at the tills, this I think is not working as it blocks the aisle and people are trying to go in-between you to get food and goods.

This my well work in supermarkets or outside where there is lots of room, but not small shops.

My thinking is it would be better to leve as is, and limit the number in the shop at anyone time.

Oh Carly's Guy are you in a town or city, or small village or out on your own well away from everyone?

Here again is Carlys link to the outbreak map, https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

It's good to hear you are out of the town center Carly's Guy, and can get out without to many around, it sounds very nice, but don't know much about New England myself, and would love to go there one day.

Here we don't see anyone, and the first place is about two miles away, and it's a long drive into Hay-on-Wye small book town.

First shop and pub is in Longtown, it very small place, only one shop, but have good stock of things, pub is the Crown, there is a small school also.

And Longtown Castle that you would know from photos, we are last farm up the Black Mountains, before the rocks and heather and bracken start.

The road runs up the side of the mountain and from us back down again and meets up on the same road back into Longtown.

The farm is 75 acres of good ground, with 33 acres of rock moor heather and bracken, with grazing rights on the Mountain.

From us you can take a foot path to the point of the Mountain and go to the top, it's very flat at the top, but will take most of the day to get to the top and down again.





I do love it here in summer, and take the sheep dogs Ben and Jack on the Mountain
