Good for you Bonzo! Do you know, I have never ever had a sore arm or even felt the needle go in when having an injection. My friend laughed and she wondered if the nurse had injected the armchair I sat in by mistake!
Still haven't been 'summoned', but I don't expect it will be long. I'm up for any booster on offer - seems sensible to me. Also, still wearing a mask when out shopping.

The delightful family-over-the-road (nice couple with two school-age children) were very worried when the daddy got Covid a couple of weeks ago. He was triple-jabbed, so luckily he wasn't too terribly ill. His place of work (double-glazing company) insisted that he took an LFT test in front of them when he returned to do his job (It was negative - phew!). He's still very tired, but is 'keeping a-troshing' as best he can.

"How a Pandemic Changed the World & How to Stop the Next One

The World Health Organisation hears about 3000 potential pathogen outbreaks each month. It follows up on 300 of them - and investigates 30. It only took the right one to turn everything upside down. Devi remembers the early days of the pandemic as news trickled out from Wuhan, and focuses on Senegal's surprising response to COVID-19.

Professor Devi Sridhar, Chair of Global Public Health at Edinburgh University, has risen to prominence as one of Britain’s most trusted commentators on COVID-19. Fresh from advising the Scottish and UK Governments, the WHO and UNICEF, the academic uses the timeline of the pandemic to shine a light on how science, politics, ethics and economics affect our health."

Many elderly folk in our village are being called up for the 'Spring booster'. (This will be the second booster.) Our schools were riddled with Omicron just before the Easter half-term holiday began.
I read somewhere that this bad cold that's going around (not Covid) is due to the fact we've been hiding behind masks and keeping apart, so our natural 'herd immunity' against colds and other nasty germs has been depleted.

Maybe I sounded a bit too much out of sympathy with people unlucky enough to be suffering with long covid. I regret that. However, whilst covid-19 cases are still high, it is a mild disease for almost everyone who's been jabbed and it's causing far fewer deaths, far less serious illness and far less hospitalisation. We had our first Memory Café in Bude for two years the week before last, everyone was incredibly happy to be back (it's nearly all elderly people, even the volunteers), and there was hardly a mask in sight. On Saturday, at the cake-and-coffee morning for Ukraine, hundreds of people piled in and out of our tiny Methodist Hall, again mostly maskless, and it was an absolute delight to go to a community event that felt so bloody NORMAL for the first time in over two years. We all need to keep the jabs up-to-date and treat coronavirus as just another of life's hazards in my opinion, and tell anyone who wants to stay away from people or keep their masks on that it's entirely a matter for them. I'm not going to crowded events like this unless I've tested myself that morning first. We Brits can continue to get free boxes of seven test kits until the end of March. It's a good idea to get some, I reckon.

Steve: You guys seem to be obsessing about long covid. It simply is not worth the resort to continue using restrictions. You really can't see how vital it is to get back to normal life, can you?

I'm with you on this. I'm 'back to normal' as much as I can be. But 'long Covid' is, and will continue to be, a problem.
I have been aware for several months (had Covid early 2021) that my breathing was not what it should be, but had not realised the extent.
Last Tuesday I got up in our local club (Cardiff second Tuesday) to sing "Dafydd y Garreg Wen". Within two lines I realised I didn't have the breath support to do it justice. This is not a problem I've experienced before, and I rarely practice in advance, just get up and sing. It was worrying. For my second song I went for something a bit punchier and with shorter lines!

You guys seem to be obsessing about long covid. It simply is not worth the resort to continue using restrictions. You really can't see how vital it is to get back to normal life, can you? I met elderly people today at our Memory Café who live alone and who have hardly been out of their houses for two years. I know of families who have been cooped up in high-rise flats with their stir-crazy children for months on end. We now have a mild variant that is killing only idiots who refuse the vaccine, and (in the UK at least), infection numbers, masks or not, are plummeting. I no longer want to hear about bloody long covid. If you get it, too bad. But the far greater priority for us all is to get back to normal so that we can try to live our lives in a way that makes people happy and secure in the knowledge that, whatever is thrown at us, we can be resilient and we can avoid ghastly mental ill-health issues. Live normally, in other words. Not enough people are dying any more to allow us to sidestep that.

Yesterday in Morrisons, I found that my glasses were misting over alarmingly, and then realised I'd put my mask on upside down, so the metal band was under my chin! What a twit, but I'd been trying to concentrate on my driving alone and pushing the trolley etc, so was rather preoccupied.
I'm lucky in that mask-wearing doesn't bother me at all, but I sympathise with those who find it suffocating.

I think the CDC is throwing up its hands - they're now watching the pressure on regional hospitals and if the hospitals are full or overwhelmed, the advice is to wear masks. Otherwise, not. This is like they're saying "you fools won't get vaccinated and won't wear masks, and you're going to do what you want to do no matter what we say, so until the hospitals are full of dying people, do what you're gonna do."

This doesn't mean COVID is gone, it means the Omicron variant is dissipating. I plan to continue to wear a mask in public places because I don't want to get sick. I don't know that my area is allowed to go without masks yet, we were hit pretty hard recently, so there is research involved. But when in doubt, the prudent move is to keep the masks handy.

All legal restrictions have been lifted here. One or two small shops still insist on face masks. Most people comply, me included, but the few who don't are not challenged (in my experience anyway).

It's over four weeks since the mask edict was dropped and case numbers have continued to fall. The Omicron surge went on unabated despite the mask mandate being restored two weeks before Christmas. I'm not drawing conclusions, nor resorting to bad science, just reporting what's happened. Confounding factors are many and significant and should never be set aside.

Transport for London drops rules on compulsory face masks

"Passengers will no longer need to wear masks on the tube and other transport in the capital from Thursday, Transport for London has announced.

TfL said it would continue to strongly recommend masks are worn but would no longer make them mandatory.

TfL has previously continued to make mask-wearing a “condition of carriage” on London Underground and other services, even when the government said they were no longer a legal requirement.

However, compliance rates dropped without the threat of enforcement by police or fixed penalty notices. The legal requirement in England to wear masks on transport and other public settings, reimposed during the Omicron surge, was dropped in late January."

And

"TfL said independent testing by Imperial College London carried out monthly since September 2020 had no found traces of coronavirus on touch points in stations and on buses, and revealed that the whole transport network was well ventilated."

I was up in London at the start of February. The majority of passengers that I saw on the Tube were wearing masks.

No more free lateral flow tests after April 1. It's being predicted that a box of seven may cost £20. That means that the vast majority of people will stop self-testing. To me, the two main tenets of exercising personal responsibility, which is what the government now expects from us, are getting the vaccines and frequent testing (and keeping away from people if you test positive). I also note that boosters for most will not be provided until the autumn. For me, that will mean a whole year between boosters. I can't help thinking that Johnson is making wrong calls again. I think he's counting on a big seasonal drop in infection numbers. He'd better be right. I know that most countries charge big money for tests and that the UK is an exception. So mixed feelings this end.

In publishing quotes MLA and APA both give a word count - 40 words can be included in quote marks, longer than that should be a blockquote. I don't count the words often, I use just the blockquote because it is generally understood to be quoted material (and you don't use quote marks WITH blockquotes). Other style books give similar rules, but these are the two I work with most. The italics in the blockquote below are for emphasis of a quote within a quote (and I preferred italics to bold that was originally used.)

BWM, I think the best method here for longer quotes which may run to several paragraphs is to use the blockquote (<blockquote> </blockquote>) tags to indent the quoted text. SRS usually does this.

Perhaps not my place to try to teach Granmaw to suck eggs, but isn’t it the standard way to indicate a quote by italicising the quoted piece and using quotation marks (what we used to call ‘inverted commas’)?

Coronavirus FAQ: Is it a good idea to get COVID before I'm over 60 and at higher risk?

The short answer - hell, no!

I'm in my 50s. If I'm going to get COVID, it seems like it would be better to get it before I'm older and in a higher-risk category. So — should I try to get COVID before I turn 60?

We spoke to three specialists and they all agree.

Definitely not, says Dr. Abraar Karan, an infectious disease physician at Stanford University.

"It's lunacy," says Dr. Sarah Fortune, professor of immunology and infectious diseases at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

"There are very few times in medicine where we say go ahead and get the disease, because for the most part getting the disease is not good," says Dr. Fred Pelzman, associate professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. "Once a vaccine became available for chicken pox, for example, no one was saying, go ahead and expose your child to chicken pox."
