They keep telling us that we are reaching the peak of infections and that things will settle down after that. We keep listening to them whilst the death-count rises. Almost a thousand souls departed yesterday. Our strange new reality has thrown up lots of strange responses. Generally, the sunshine has become apparent and it is... Continue Reading →

At last, we have reached the significant number, the one that we are all dreading. It's just another number on the list of numbers of diseases relating to their genetic structure rather than the disease. Therefore, viruses, and the diseases they cause, often have different names.  For example, HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. ... Continue Reading →

Instead of being tied to the land of their masters, given subsidiary wages (in kind), and being treated as no better than cattle, the surviving poor were now newly empowered.

Write about what you know, that's what they tell you. The problem is that I do not know these times, at all. These times have sprung up from the pages of novels that weave themselves around the possibility of a plague decimating the world's population. Interesting that the term, decimate, refers to the Roman habit... Continue Reading →

This morning came again, at 5 and 6 and 7.15 and 8.30. It was delayed and left us swimming around in the shallows. Finally comes when everything else has taken place. One day, this will be over; not finally. The government set about each new update to the nation by reading out a long list... Continue Reading →
