    That’s a bit of a shocker!

    I have about 20 excellent single malt drams in my collection. Enough to last a few months. Might not get c v but my liver won’t be in a good state! :lol:

    As much as many dont want to accept... I agree with you @TheGrissom ....

    I have a feeling we not going to have it easy and probably the loss of lives is going to be scary
    Hopefully the lockdown will be our saving Grace if people adhere to it and are careful
    The economy will recover in time... also providing Eskom gets their act together.. but its going to take a while but again... for some it might never recover
    The poor and middle class will go through hard times

    And... take my hat off to all those that have to work and ris their lives for everyone else
    Cesar is also on stand by to attend to cleaning equipment if necessary at hospitals and those that have to work..

    Toasted it over a camping stove then quenched it in linseed oil, repeated 3 times. This gave me a nice gunmetal :D

    I just need to get this out there as now this has just hit home - someone in our QC lab has been spending time with a friend from Cape Town. That friend just tested positive for the Covid19. Our lab is in complete chaos right now. An entire shift has been sent home. This has the potential to shut us down before we have started. It shouldnt have an effect on my team hopefully but you never know.

    Not good news.
    Hope it doesn't cause your team too many issues

    Apparently that's is one of the problems with this particular virus. The incubation period is 5 days on average. And one is fully infectious during that period. So a person can be walking around spreading it without even knowing.

    Even hearing reports of up to 14 days incubation which is why CR wants a 21 day lockdown. That way anybody with it can shake it without transmitting it too much

    Made some frozen food from the link @GaryG posted. Used half the ingredients but forgot to half the spinach hence its so green. Left out the liver and used hake as the white fish and added some nori and carrots as well as multi vitamins.
