  1. With 20-20 hindsight, I should have done that. Everything I've been snapping since the lockdown is News, not Stock. Edo
  2. Sally, dear—did you explain to that bird that its neck is way too long? It needs help. There's not much beautiful nature here in Liverpool, unless you count the colourful selection of antipasti in the M&S Foodhall.
  3. I have had an allergy condition and cough variant asthma every single day for the past 33 years. It comes and goes in the day. It's not a Liverpool thing, but now is tree and grass pollen time.
  4. Wops, my daughter in law informs me that I missed Québec Day in June.
  5. Tis the New York Irish lad. Joyeux jour du Canada, John! And to all Canadians.
  6. Scousers are hardy folks, John. Last winter I saw many sitting outside in T-shirts. Me? I had two layers on. Oh, and I was inside. I hope I have time to assess the latest changes before my Sunday blog time. The weekend forecast is rain. Poco a poco.
  7. I've been trying raw ginger in several ways this past week—eating it raw, shaving onto food, and making hot tea with a large piece. None of it worked. Thanks anyway, Edo
  8. I would be best to ask Alamy that question, sir. Good luck with Alamy and with Manchester. If your code name is supposed to be the NY Yankee baseball star, the hero of my youth, it would be two Gs: DiMaggio. Edo
  9. If my NHS doctor here tells me to cut back on my drinking, I'll make the change. That is I'll get a new doctor.
  10. Imagine, tomorrow is July 1st. In the UK, we've all been in some kind of isolation for three months. The natives are restless. Allan, if you avoid alcohol, that's probably a good thing. I used to drink only 4 things: coffee, beer, wine, and water. This past winter here in Liverpool, I added brandy to the mix. I practice 16/8 intermittent fasting. That is I eat breakfast and lunch only. That's nothing to eat or drink at night except water. I used to drink 10 to 14 drinks a week. With the brandy and the lockdown, I'm up to about 21 drinks a week. The American medical community says that 21 drinks a week is where alcoholism begins. Hmm.
  11. Yeah, the first RX100 went to 100mm. But the wide end was 28mm, not 24mm. I've never liked the 28mm look. In the film era, I always use primes, and I see a big personality difference between 24 and 28.
  12. It occurs to me: we're all strangers in a strange land now.
  13. Should I get the bottom half of my face printed on my mask? Smiling, of course. 😁
  14. Because the paper masks can break, I always have a second one with me. On the street, when I'm not close to anyone, I wear the mask on my chin. It's very easy and fast to pull it up over my mouth and nose when I get close to others or inside a shop. In Italy, a friend tells me, masks are becoming a fashion accessory.
