    A very covid Christmas

    Not sure this is worth a separate thread, but I would get lost in the arguing of thd main covid thread. This Chrustmas is obviously going to be very strange, so I thought it might be an idea for people to throw up stuff that worked or didn't work for them Christmas wise this year. We brought...

    Kino gigs

    Just back from the John Prine tribute in the Kino. Really really impressed by the set up there. Good set up in terms of distance between tables, table service for drinks, staff all wearing visors. Just in case anyone is interested in heading to a gig but nervous about the set up.

    Do you get a Christmas present for your spouse/partner?

    I was at a gathering yesterday and the talk turned to Christmas presents. I was amazed that the majority of the people there in long term relationships didn't get Christmas presents for their other half. Lots of them just agreed with their other half to get something for themselves and the...
