  1. I think it's true to say that mucus does not contain much in the way of important germs normally. The germs that do live in our mouths and airways tend to live in warm and damp places. Once outside the body the cold and probably drier environment causes them to perish. After all these years of it going on, I don't recall any player falling victim to disease caused by spitting.
  2. With the current prognosis of at least three months in lockdown and probably longer, the new season will inevitably be affected. Given that, will the authorities simply restart the present season at whatever date that happens to be and try to fit in the next as soon as possible? That will cause a cascade of dates. If not then we will have to stomach this season going in the bin. Neither option is going to please everyone and neither is without much pain.
  3. For the local historian and community types, I would heartily recommend the Know Your Place Bristol site: http://maps.bristol.gov.uk/kyp/?edition=&maptype=js It has lots of old maps and stuff that can keep your curiosity going for ages. For example, you can see what the Ashton Gate site was before it became the football ground it is today.
  4. Seems there is a desire at the HQ to complete the cup matches as there are only a few of them left to play. Perhaps Bitton could see their day in the spotlight (and a lucrative home match) yet.
  5. The current regulations are all-pervading and are affecting a lot more than football. However, notwithstanding all that has occurred and with respects to those at the sharp end, I remain in the Shankly camp. The sudden shutdown of football has made me feel lost and empty. The days all seem the same and featureless. When this is all over, we will have a new perspective, but for the time being...
  6. Seems the Toolstation League might come up with a formulated conclusion to this season soon, basing league positions on points-per-game. Also feel for Bitton, whose FA Vase semi-finals are a real doubt now.
  7. And a salute to the sterling Ingrid Pitt, with special mention for the irresistible and irredeemably lovely Maddy Smith. For their input into a horror genre they managed to provide some notable diversions.
  8. I think that one of the key measures of an artist is their output over time. Normally, a good track or two is all some achieve, maybe a great album or a number one hit, but it's in the albums I feel the true nature is revealed. Kate turned out some immensely remarkable albums right from the start: The Kick Inside, Lionheart, Never For Ever and so on - all from a young but precocious girl. Despite the many years where she dipped below the media horizon, she continued to evolve and explore different themes and styles. No other artist (male or female) has had the breadth or range of musical probity. Add in the very visual approach of her videos (quite the shock for a plainly shy person) and her passion for expressive dance and you have the unique and inimitable Kate. She holds the listener gently but firmly in her grasp, never repetitive, never less than a journey into an open soul. Clever, sexy, thoughtful, refreshing, unassuming yet enigmatic. Wuthering Heights is her only British Chart topper, yet the fact that her live tour of a few years ago sold out quicker than Glastonbury speaks volumes. I'll not live long enough to hear any female singer/songwriter who can out gun the unapologetic or unalloyed Kate. She is unique.
  9. Feeling rudderless without any live footy, either in person or on telly. Every day is starting to feel the same, a sort of sporting Groundhog Day. Can't see me lasting too much longer - food is not so important, but having no football is doing me in. At this time of the year we should be into the business end of the season, but no.
  10. My gym was still in full order last I went tonight but they are taking each day on its merits. One trainer said he reckoned a week would see it shut. Now the Government have closed the schools from next week it looks likely that all gyms will follow suit. And as an aside, I did some low impact stuff - no cardio - but there was about a quarter of the usual turnout. Numbers falling will force a closure in itself.
  11. Terrific Tom is off! The Pats' future HoF QB has announced his departure. Brady had 20 years in Foxborough, winning six Lombardi Trophies, losing three. With Brees sat still in New Orleans, it may be the time for Phil Rivers to make way for a promising youngster. Or possibly Brady. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/american-football/51930150
  12. All Toolstation games are off now! They will review in a fortnight's time. Well that's stuffed me tomorrow then. Looks like some gardening if dry or back to doing the front room. Could even chance my arm at some shopping - if they are allowing customers.
