What I did today. Well, I have been self isolated for 2 weeks, as have my parents who live 50 miles away, both 82 and not in the most marvellous of health so I paid them a visit.

My longer term, but growing concern is if the entire global economy collapses, 1930s style. This is a real possibility now. It that happens, our main primary industry, which is money handling/laundering will be f***ed. At which point, what do we pay with for the 60% of food we now need to import in...

Looks fine? If fit for animal feed can't see why I couldn't mill it and bake with it? ...if I had a mill. Som...

Daughter getting out of London, right now. Not waiting. It's going to be locked down very quickly in her opinion.

Perhaps in these times we should turn to the great philosophers?

Anyone else having difficulty sleeping? Normally I sleep like a log .. but no more : wrory after in the middle of the night. Am i alone? No. Thinking through the long term implications of all this does tend to occupy the mind in idle moments, not worry in my case, but certainly considering how to c...

Dear oh dear. A Facebook group I occasionally venture into has an expert in it. All this fuss and it's obvious! Take massive doses of vitamin C and it's all going to go away. Thank the Lord. No need to panic then.

Well knock me down with a feather. My campsite booking software tells me someone just booked for July, there has been nothing for 2 weeks, I thought it was broken. Yes, remaining open, have protocols in place, in fact this is a good place to be for someone going full hermit. In reality when the time...

Perhaps if anyone over the age of 50 knows any high ranking economists they should cull them as well. RGR, sounds like you fit the profile as a gun for hire, if we all chip in perhaps we could hire you? I am taking 'The Magnificent 7' as the template here, have a watch if you want to take us up, pl...

Does not compute : .... no HMG action planned for a week or two ... yet massive queues and panic buying at supermarkets. Has the populace worked out what is REALLY about to happen? The Wisdom Of Crowds at work? Wisdom some of the crowd , yes, certainly not all. Tiny example, I and a few friends run...

I think it is now clear that much of the global economy is going to be shut down. Our existing financial/economic system was already in serious trouble before this virus turned up. It was basically broken in 2008, and has been held together since then with extremely low interest rates and printing ...
