Genuinely held up by a cyclist earlier...

Old boy, see him quite often, he leans into the cross wind which was quite strong today for the poor sod. Luckily managed to safely cross the double whites so as to give him plenty of space whilst passing, as you do.

Why does colchester seem to have a problem with a small group of anti-vaccers?
at 09:09 1 Dec 2021

Previously they have done a few bits at the Hospital. Yesterday they were outside Sainsbury's encouraging shoppers not to wear masks in defiance of the newly imposed law.

Pricks.

"Kathryn Stone, had declined to open an investigation...Ms Stone decided there was insufficient evidence to justify an inquiry"

So that video of Cox conducting private business from parliament, where he apologies for skipping part of the meeting as "the bell went" - that is deemed insufficient evidence.

First games console or computer you got?
at 21:54 29 Nov 2021

Know we had a ZX Spectrum and a BBC micro thingy - not sure which came first. The local youth club had an Atari which was the dogs bollox for games.

Was a master at Pong (On the spectrum?) and then progressed to Asteroids on the Atari.

Edit: And at Uni (or Poly) all our programming was on mainframes. We used SPSS for the statistical analysis, Fortran 77 for the programming/modelling. Sure we also did some spreadsheets and database stuff too - can't recall what on. I know I did a load of Foxpro stuff in my first job from 92.

Avoids the hassle of having to carry the petrol nozzle thingy about 2m.

Yeah, they make it real small so you would never notice it unless told about it. It's like a secret club.

Booster vaccines to be offered after 3 months

Relevant part is at 3.24pm.

Clear message from JVT, wait for the NHS to contact you as they wish to priotise those receiving the boosters.

They also said on the conference where they announced it, to wait until you are contacted, as they want to ensure those most in need get priority. They are also giving a 4th jab to those most in need.

You'll have an hour or so before this moves but can watch it from 3pm

We made a few good chances and on another day could have had 4 or 5. The problem was how we let a seemingly very poor Crewe side back into the match in a manner where we were holding on for the win.

Not sure about those booing the players off (none heard from me in the Churchmans stand) - was a deflating performance but booing a win seems odd to say the least.

Bottom line is no one is locking anything down until it's crystal clear the new variant is dangerous. And at the moment we just don't know so little point in debating the whys and wherefores when it's most likely that we won't have to.

IF it proves to be dangerous (resistant to the vaccines) then there's a decision to be made by those in power. In the meantime they are taking steps to limit it's spread (Facemasks and tighter travel) which seems sensible.

Taking steps in a timely manner with a view to increasing restrictions if/when we know more, struggling to see any of that as bad tbh, and in stark contrast to when the Delta variant was first identified.

And isn't it great to hear words of the Nicola Sturgeon. Eminently sensible, clear and proportionate advice that will help us all protect each other...

"Please - even if you are feeling fine - test yourself on each and every occasion you intend to mix with people from outside your household. That means before you go to the pub, or to a restaurant, or to someone’s house, or even to a shopping centre.

And if the test shows up positive do not go. Instead, get a confirmatory PCR test and self isolate until you get the result of that.

If we all do this, we will slow the spread. And we will maximise our chances, not just of a more normal Christmas but a safer Christmas too and, let’s all hope, a much brighter new year."

Shame there's no daily CV presser today as it would be quite funny to hear Chris Whitty explain why a face mask offers significantly more protection against a virus than trousers do to a fart.
