I’m thinking of getting myself tested.

Ita easy enough, just find a politician or sportsman to cough on and see what their result comes back as.
LOL

In my town is now active a drive-thru testing point. They read your car plate, do the tampon (swab) with you in the car, send the results to you cellphone/email after a couple of days.

I have enough issues understanding the Kings/Queens English at times....
I can watch a German movie in German and understand 90% but Italian is about 5%.


I have edited a few of the posts on this virus only for spelling or putting spaces between some words. I did just go back and un-edited his post and put (Swab) next to it.

Somepeoplecan typeusing nospaces.And no other suchthings ;)

Parduz, you are doing great. Do not worry. I have to edit every one of my posts. My fingers don't always follow my brain.

Like Dave said, you are doing great

:) When my friend was a young woman she stayed with a family in Spain and asked the father, in front of all his kids if he had any jam - only she translated our word “preserves” into the nearest Spanish word “preservativos” (used to prevent babies) :)

It only stands out because the rest of your posts are so good.
I’ve heard lots of english speakers call them “ear buds” and “test thing” Because they didn’t have the right word. Sometimes you see ”tampon” in medical text books for cotton wadding to plug or pack a wound so it kind of made sense.

Well, we in the UK have now more in common with Parduz and Northern Italy following the Prime Minister's instructions of STAY INDOORS unless allowed out for work, exercise or essential shopping!
Typical as our normal holiday involves driving each year to stay for a week at Cannobio on the shores of Lago Maggiore - the sealing up of the front room for holiday purposes could be on the cards!

Think I'll give it another couple of weeks to see how it's going - if it stays the same and the Burgman isn't being used enough I'll give it an oil change, re connect the battery tender and pretend it's snowing...
Interesting times we live in, in the words of the late Irish comedian Dave Allen: "may your God go with you" as it seems most of us here are in the worst hit age group!

I'm not sure about the rest of you , but inside quarantine is impossible here, wednesday is burrito day so thursday is mandatory outside and pray for a stiff breeze day. Even the cat heads for an upwind position.

S.W.M.B.O. is adamant taking a bath will not give me corona virus, I on the other hand am taking no chances, I don't know where that water has been and it has no alco-- disinfectant in it! I tried telling her fish poop in the water, she said there are no fish in the shower. I definitely am not getting wet if_ more later, the water is running.

In my nearest town the houses are mostly 150+ yrs old and a bit gothic looking.

During lockdown people are communicating with neighbours they never spoke too before by putting messages in windows, like:
”What is the name of the cute kitten in the bottom window of No. 24?”

Mrs B showed me a reply saying
”Tiger...what’s the name of the very pale boy in antique clothes that appears in your attic window?”
