For the first time since COVID hit the local town is practically deserted today.

I think the Bushmills bottle will be making an appearance tonight. ๐Ÿฅƒ

I have been in a webinar.

@tig who was it that hated the word webinar? Mze?

That moment when everyone around you says:

"You're wasting your time.", "There's nothing there for us.", "They use someone else!"

But you don't give in, you keep working at it and the Customer says: "Sure, I'd like you to quote me Pete and if we have to blow what we have away and start again I'm happy to do that if your proposal looks good enough."

Fook Social Media. I'm bloody good at what I do for a living!

The shoe industry is going to have a massive boom when we all go back to work because nobody wears shoes around the house so we'll all need new shoes given our toes have straightened out through lack of being crushed inside footwear.

Yet another day where I'm having to bite my lip while it's OK for others to get on my tits by talking complete bollocks.

I may have to go round and give the MIL a bit of kicking. Yesterday we had her going on about Tiers and how pubs have to shut early: "Since when did you drink in pubs mum? Why are you bothered?"

She's just been on the phone telling the wife how bad the rules are in Spain! "Are you going there then mum? Are we going there? Why are you worried about these things?"

It's either a kicking or I'll have to confiscate her TV, phone and radio.

Prime example of COVID stupidity. Took Charlie to the local garden centre where we were told we either had to carry him or put him in a trolley due to covid rules. So explain to me me how it's better have a dog in a trolley that shoppers put their shopping in rather than having him walk on the floor?

If you're thinking of buying Call of Duty Black ops. Save your money. It's not worth the ยฃ54.99 I paid. Took me six hours to complete and the last chapter is a complete piss-take where you perform the same scenario over and over.

Apparently, on Monday last one of my suppliers said to a colleague:

"๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜Š๐˜ฉ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜—๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜”๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜บ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง๐˜ง!"

You are running an old Covid version.
Please update to Covid-20 to enjoy of new lockdown and pandemic features.

@dick_turpin This is exactly the reason that I donโ€™t use LinkedIN. Itโ€™s impossible to stalk someone without them knowing.

So is the Government in an effort to combat people worried about taking a Rushed vaccine seriously considering giving them 'Special Access' QR codes to events?
"Na, sorry love. No QR code no Adele for you!" ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The only thing I like about LinkedIN is the fact it tells you when someone has looked at your profile. If only it could tell you why? Because a couple of people I know have recently looked and for the love of the Pond Gods I can't think of a valid reason why they would want to?

The wife and I are building up a catalogue of all the Covid related names/titles that are being invented some of which are:

Super Infector
Furlough Envy
Super Fines
And we just heard a new one
Covid Racist

Dual display is now working on my 4 with 20.10 maybe an update fixed it? I did run sudo usermod -aG video peter but surely that wasn't necessary? In fact, I know it wasn't because the problem was in the boot process.

The wife has suggested we go out later, together, on our own, and Take Charlie over The Chase.

Please pray for me. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ
