      Hope you are having a better week, @Rita. Sometimes work can indeed be rather stressful...

      Thanks a lot for your thread comment, @Rita ; yes we are doing well, and protected from the virus so far, thankfully. The mask wearing idea does involve some self-discipline, as you would know. Hoping your work is going okay.

        PS: Yes those masks can make it hard to breathe, can't they? I had a bit of a moment, yesterday evening, when I seemed to be panting quite a bit with my mask on.

        Masks seem to solve one problem - to some extent, anyway - but create another....

        I think those who make the rules about ppl wearing masks are really, probably themselves in a learning process...

        I think you have to adapt when you have to face something head on .....everyone will face this side of it eventually - many are going back to work here, and they are only beginning to face that inner concern - so they too will need to adapt x

        Must be painful if they press too hard on the nose; some of the young women from church, that my wife and I have known, would have to remove their nose jewelry unless they were prepared for it to be painful; but the testing all in a necessary cause, I guess...

      Hi @Rita; hope all is well. I see some ppl from the US are now having trouble with everyone being vaccinated. For me, the sooner I can have a vaccination the better, with this awful thing that attacks the lungs. For those in the US there must be some political thing in their minds which - I at least - just don't grasp. (I mean, ppl have gotten vaccinated for years against, smallpox, mumps, measles, etc.)

        Id like to research and make a decision for my daughter myself. Especially since she isnt in the risk group, Id personally like to see the results first. Because if this vaccine is 3 months old...Id rather hubby and I have it first awhile after baby is born. My daughter has had all of hers. But those have been around a long time...

      @Rita You are right about the pervasively America-centric way of looking at things in the US media. A bit like in the days of the British Empire, when to so many ppl anything that went on anywhere outside the British Empire was utterly irrelevant.
      1. farouk
        farouk
        When mind-bending self-absorption leads ppl to deny the reality of killer viruses because it's somehow inconvenient to self-absorption, then it becomes really dangerous; just as it was really dangerous for the British political class in the 1930s to ignore the Dictators, even when their threat was patently obvious.

        Yes, I must admit that I have a deep level of concern for the USA, I knew they were insular, but the forum posts are really relaying something I don’t feel good about.

        Hi Farouk, I have only just seen your message about my ex husband passing away. Yes we had a few very difficult months and all four of my children were struggling, not quite sure where there grief is right now because of this virus- it’s been a kind of distraction. My ex handled his illness so well, and put everything right with all of us - the cancer spread very fast. It was a sad Christmas xx

        It's good to remember at times of tribulation that in Hebrews 7.25 the Lord Jesus 'ever liveth to make intercession' for His pilgrim people.
