Yes I was trying to lighten the mood including my own .... somewhat unsuccessfully unfortunately which is one of the problems with jokes that work in the pub but not on a forum.

Fortunately that Australia has been so far been spared so far the trauma that Italy has experienced ( we had enough already with the bush fires) and I am sorry for Italy and worried we face the same problems in the future. I like many on this forum are in the high risk group and urge those amongst us to take care.

I had an Email from my sister in NZ near Wellington and NZ are just starting to have problems too.
It's easy for things to spread now and it's not only Fake News.
Even "Bo Jo" in the UK is thinking of changing his tactics.

Just been notified that they have cancelled my next race meeting in May due to the Corona virus. Looks like I will not being enjoying myself on the track for many months to come :( but gives me some time to spend in the Garage doing stuff that needs doing and nice to not be under the pressure of the next meeting. Luckily I have the parts stock I need to do what I am planning ... mainly

cheers

I guess we all understood that, it was, as Steve pointed out, just the :D missing.

I've just watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGNHVYU0Xok and am in love.

Had a notification via AnneMarie at Club Lotus that the area meeting in Brizzle is cancelled. Have asked if Castle Combe is under threat. Will let you know.

A large number of my friends have been diagnosed with carownervirus. Once infected, it is near impossible to cure.
