Headline Say

WARNING: COVID POST: DEPRESSING

I have just switched on my computer and the first headline that hits me is this:

COVID: Police clash with protesters as thousands march through London against new restrictions (source)

With the UK number of Covid cases standing currently at 11, 279, 428 (source)
and record figures of new cases over 92K and 90K Friday and Saturday, WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH PEOPLE ?????????

Look at this mob. How many masks? One? Two? How many are carriers and not know it? How many people in this crowd will go down with the virus in a few days? How many of them will die because of their stupidity? And that’s what it is.
Whilst I am not happy with the restrictions either (the above is my re-education look), I’d rather apply common sense like masking up, sanitizing often and social distancing than end up in hospital, or worse DEAD. We have lost two friends this year who were admitted to hospital after falls where they contracted Covid and died of the virus.
It is not a myth, it is not going to go away, and it kills, irrespective of age and gender.

My personal opinion is that the country should be put in lockdown……… not after Christmas, but now. But it’s not going to happen. Things like money, business and the economy take priority over life.

Sure it’s OK for me to sit here on my sofa in my cozy lounge and spout off about it, afterall, I’m retired, we don’t go to clubs, bars, the theatre or restaurants, I have no kids, and no family to visit or visit me. But even if we did, we would still try and act responsibly in keeping our family safe and protected. It’s all we can do now anyway because of stunts like this which are putting thousands more at risk.
Two words describe them best: SELFISH MORONS.
Rant over.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Oh! Di I totally agree. These people are selfish morons! People who will not be vaccinated are the same. Three things, three that’s all cover your face, wash/ sanitise your hands and social distance…. obviously too difficult for most!
    Last year one son had Covid at Christmas, the other two and families were not allowed around because of lockdown. Now we have to consider whether to have the boys and their families round because apparently we can have Christmas but not have Christmas because of Omicron B ! I am so upset and torn I miss the boys and their families I want to see them but?
    Bojo has lost the plot and the country! Oh! Just for good measure eldest son has now got Shingles due to a stressful year…… Happy Christmas Omicron B…..
    Sorry Di rant over!
    HAPPY CHRISTMAS ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„

    • Bloody hell, you’ve gone through it! Maybe my Three Things challenge should be cover, sanitize and distance!
      I feel for families not being able to get together, especially those who are close and have youngsters because we can share in their excitement as we remember our own. My niece is travelling up from Christchurch (NZ) to spend Christmas with Bro and SIL. They are driving this time as they now have a dog, but leave the boys (now 13 and 11) for a week then they are put on a plane back to be collected at the airport.
      We have Skype but I haven’t heard from them to arrange anything. I will ring them on Christmas Day though, I always do.
      The rest of my family do their own thing though we’ve had a card from my other brother.
      How’s Ruby?

    Di, you express exactly what I feel. And yes, Bojo has definitely lost the plot. It makes me so livid. Thankyou for saying what so many of us feel.

    • You’re welcome Lorraine. How are you doing these days?

      • blindzanygirl says:

        We are doing ok but mostly staying in. We go for a drive for a short distance some afternoons but make sure we never see anybody. Webget deliveries of food etc. We let no one un necessary in the house and it feels restrictive butcweโ€™d rather stay aluve and hopefully one day this nightmare will be over orcat least manageable.

      • Likewise. We do our shopping as it gets us out of the house, only have contact with two neighbours every day to make sure they’re OK (and they us) and other than going out for a walk, we don’t see anyone else. It suits us though as we have no family so don’t have to worry about visiting or visitors.

      • blindzanygirl says:

        Do you miss your darts and SW?

      • Not really. There are too many variables with people I don’t know. At the moment I can text in my weight progress (or not haha) for SW though if that stops and I have to attend meetings, I will let my membership lapse. I’m not happy in groups or crowds at all now and my old anxiety has raised its head again. As long as I can socialise with people I know on a one to one/two basis and it’s on my terms, I’m OK. We still have the dartboard up though.

      • blindzanygirl says:

        I donโ€™t blame you Di. We used to have one person who did come here but we have now stopped him coming because he wasnโ€™t prepared to be careful. No one at all comes now. There is just the two of us now. We find things to occupy ourselves and for me it is mainly writing. Would it be okay to email you occasionally like we used to?

      • blindzanygirl says:

        Great. Have a decent day if you can. We might go for a short drive to get rid of the cobwebs ha!

      • Like your new picture by the way. We’re staying in. Temperatures are dropping again, so we’ve just watched the live version of Mulan. Great stuff.

      • blindzanygirl says:

        LOL we can have a real vent!

  4. I so fully agree!! Here in Utah the number of non-vaxxers and refusal to mask up or observe safety measures (stand back from me! Grrr!) is staggering. I had a friend who took a recent trip back East recently, and she remarked how much more sensibly they act in the city she visited. Everyone wore masks in public, no fights or grousing about being ‘forced to wear that damned thing”, she and her daughter went to a public event, and one had to show a current vaccination card to get in. Restaurants, stores, the air terminal were the same. There were no dumb asses thinking they have the right to make everyone else sick because they’re entitled assholes without a clue and no common sense. One has to go west to find those idiots, and my town hosts a HUGE population of them sadly enough. A neighbor lost a family member (cousin) who was only 7 years old, and another neighbor lost their 36 year old cousin – both neighbors and their families are fully immunized and on board the common sense train, but the families of the dead weren’t. No masks, and shock and dismay that their family members died. Well DOH! The crazy part is that the attitudes of those un-vaccinated and unmasked people hasn’t changed. My sympathies. I refuse to look at headlines any more for these very reasons, it’s just too depressing. Thanks for sharing Di!

    • Thanks Melanie. We are spiraling into a madness not of our making. I have just read a headline that a song has been released about BoJo. I shall not bother reading the article as it goes to show that the world is so f***ed up that this kind of filth is considered entertainment.

    Oh Di! I sympathize with you. We are in the same boat here. All the nurses in the family gave us stern warning to “Not get sick or get in any accident” because there is no room at the inn, I mean hospital. The stores all have signs posted saying they “recommend” masking and distancing but I’m usually the only person in the store masked… it makes me very nervous. We spend as little time out as possible!

    • It’s not getting any better over here Val. We’ve been out today and masked up accordingly. We were able to keep our distance in most places we went into, though it was a bit iffy in the bank. The supermarket wasn’t too busy, but customers there had trolleys piled high with goods. Most customers were wearing masks though. We got the few final things we wanted, and I’m done now. If haven’t got it, that’s too bad. We won’t starve.
