    Got another emergency message on my phone this morning, looks like we're pretty close to lock down here in Stoon, but just not yet. We're certainly having it a bit easier than other provinces so far, knock on wood.

    I've read about birds falling out of the sky by the hundreds...and fish dying in lakes by the scores. If memory serves me, both have something in common: huge areas without oxygen. It's more common with the fish when lakes fill with algae and the oxygen level drops below being able to support the fish. And, while not that common with birds, it has to do with large air masses minus the oxygen..like gaseous invisible "balloons".

    To be honest it was OK we managed way better than most, hate to say but my Dad passing away had made it much much easier for my mum we still had some money coming in and the coal meant we were warm.

    After though the village struggled to get back on its feet lots of redundancies and people moving away, the village became a dumping ground for single mums and low income families (nothing wrong with them its just what happened), the village took a downturn drugs became a major problem, Ystalyfera became know as the village from hell

    No job prospects (and other factors) resulted in me moving away in 86 to where I still live and the difference was amazing, Neath was also a mining town but had managed to survive relatively well and was prospering, fell in love with the place fell in love with a girl and 30 years later we are still here

    In a way the strike did me a favour :)

    Hope your OK though mate :)

    feels somewhat trivial all things considered, but matters to me
    these gorgeous green eyes belong to my youngest cat T(w)ofu, she has (probable) pneumonia, is not a happy bunny atm
    like I say, in current climate it almost seems irrelevant, but we still have to love our little furry friends, right?

    I was wandering what were you and the cats (and the missus) up to these days just this morning. I hope Tofu gets better soon. Tell her to stay away from the bats!

    I want the same for him as for others, to get well and survive this as soon as possible. I have no bad feelings for him. I hope he survives it and he realizes that the herd immunity is good and all, as long as we are not talking about humans suffering being the members of the herd.

    Yeah my god father has a bad heart as well, and he has to walk about the same each day, although he lives on an acreage so he doesn't really have trouble with social distancing thank goodness.

    Our governor, today, extended the state-wide "Shelter in Place" through the 30th of this month. Essential businesses are still open, which means I still clock in to work on my regular schedule, and necessary trips to the store, doctor, etc are allowed. Even outdoor exercising...so long as social distancing is observed.
