Comments: I understand the maths of today's date

Warm and wet here. The fish pond is just about full. I was expecting the fish to evolve legs the water was getting so low.

How are my weeds doing? Pulled up a load more here.

Warm and wet here too.

The Covid 19 figures: Does Coven Nord have a higher proportion of older people? That might account for some of the figures but it does seem very odd. I think they are making up the figures as they go along to promote the on-going lockdown. Too fit to admit "We overreacted...keep digging".

Delcatto - that's a good theory, but: Over 65s: Coven Nord area: 23.6%
Coven Sud area: 19%

Not enough of a difference to make sense of the difference I'd think. Coven Sud area is definitely a wealthier demographic overall (you need to be to even live there these days cf when we moved there 26 years ago!), but, much more densely populated. I can't make any sense at all of the north/south covid numbers divide.

The figures are going to get worse this week with 700+ new cases at Northumbria University just announced.

We've not had a frost here yet, but it wouldn't be unusual.

I'm sure you've heard the orange one has gotten sick now. When you're that careless it's only a matter of time. This will be interesting with the election only a month away.
