    All things BBQ and Braai

    Just went to the garden centre and they have replaced the Christmas decorations with BBQ and outdoor furniture stuff. Season must be coming up ;-)

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Was it about a week for the over 60s then? Could we do the 45s in March?

    How many balls do you start a round of golf with?

    2 or 3 sleeves plus the one sleeve I am playing, 7 to 9 balls. I also have a handful of ransoms in the bag, just in case. And if I find a premium ball I play that (until the stream crossing)

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    They are trialling an interesting app in Germany. For every vaccine that is predicted to be wasted at the end of the day they are contacting 3 people locally, 1st one replying gets it. Random but by priority group. Nobody replies, they roll it over to the next lot after 30 minutes. The goal is...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Is this after the 2nd jab is supposed to be given a week ago? Maybe someone should tell Boris to rtfm.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Beautiful day out there. Went for a walk through bushy park, but making it clear to the little one we don’t stop at the playground. Going past it, it was rammed full with people. We had a 2 hour tantrum walk back why we wouldn’t go when all the others can play. R is going to go up next week the...

    Slow Play - Not worth a punch in the face?

    He is a little younger than Schwarzenegger and Stallone, both probably could take and give a punch to and from many/all of us here.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    While I would prefer that they vaccinate some groups earlier I think that is past useful at some point, and doing it by age is just the easiest way to do it. You are getting a good amount of teachers, bus drivers, check out personal, ... in those age groups as well, and there is no fight about...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    They seem to be racing through now. Based on my social media feed a friend (46) in East London has been done yesterday and couple of people I know around 50 in the West End area of London.

    Do you ever get the urge?

    I gave up basketball when I came to the UK. Everyone was either really really good or really really awful, no middle ground. There is a court next to our park and I see some awful playing people on there and I think I should be better. It’s a mixed court with football and I take the little one...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    The way Ethan explained the immune reaction and why people seem to recover before suddenly passing away involved blood clods. At least in my memory. And if you once had them it’s more likely to get them again. So a risk group.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    If you want to have some more German news, the Bild is talking about 100 million doses of AZ on the grey market and about 1.2 million doses of AZ sitting unused in fridges because people want Pfizer.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Are there religions that don’t vaccinate? I think Mormons don’t do doctors, do they? But that isn’t really a UK problem.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    I didn’t get that. But what about the floppy Willie? At least Pfizer sells a product that solves that ;-)

    What condition do you expect your course to be in come March 29?

    I don’t know how good my Crown Golf course will be, but based on social media they used the time with no traffic to fix the car park ;-) We had pot holes that were more like bunkers than divots, it’s a good use of resources and time.

    But why book and not attend? I don’t get that.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Just sent that and I got a text message from the Imperial College NHS Trust to book my 1st shot (if I didn't have it yet). Sorry Dr. Renal, but Dr. Cardio already took care of me ;-) Let someone else have this 1st shot please.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    I had a sneaky look at the NHS page now and am not eligible to book there. Pressed the link on my text again and it says my GO will contact me for my 2nd shot 11 weeks after the 1st. That’s late April then, but at least I know now.
