How are you doing?
I don't remember if I signed in before. That's because I'm well over 55/
I don't remember if you did either.
Old dudes thinking they're 23 is a common problem that can often lead to a crack on the bonce.
Hope you are recovering nicely Simon.
Hell, I don't remember what I had for brekkie!
In other news, a page or so ago I noted that I had (rather ridiculously) acquired three different '80s solid state Marshall 5000 series model combos. (Conversely, and in my defense, at least they are very affordable!)
As we all know, when we get to "over 55," we may repeat ourselves. In that spirit, and, file under "Oops, I did it again" (several months ago!):
I'm getting better and the hair is growing back. I'm a lot more worried about Hazel. Today is probably the last day we'll go into town for a long time. When we need stuff, we'll either have it delivered, or I'll go and get it on my own.
Walking in the open, the chances of catching COVID-19 seem fairly remote, but as soon as you start touching anything, that's a different story. No loo paper or soap when I went into a local store. How's it looking in Paris?
Here first Sargent!
Glad you're better but sorry if Hazel's not doing well.
We expect a total lockdown, with a 6pm curfew enforced by soldiers, to be announced tonight. We're fine. Managed to get sone toilet paper, and even pasta!
No soap would be worrying...
Take care, stay safe!
Glad to know it's under control, sort of. Hazel's fine, but she won't get it into her head that staying alive is a priority over her personally going into supermarkets.
Hunkering down is the best option. My wife and I have been advised to self isolate, in fact our whole country has been so advised.
I don't understand this toilet paper thing, this is Covid19 not norovirus
55? I'm not sure I can remember that far back.
So, I get an email from my Aunt Carolyn on Vancouver Island saying her nephew won't be visiting after all and adding that she "hopes and trusts" we are in self isolation. I pointed out that this thing could last until Christmas and even we don't have that much wine in!
The tactic over here is basically to delay things, so we don't all get ill at the same time. I've seen estimates that 8 million in the UK could need hospital treatment, and we don't have that sort of capacity on a good day. There won't be any good days this year.
All I can really say to anyone is try to stay out of harm's way.
That is the idea.
Yesterday at work, some extra wizardry was installed on my work computer, and I was told to take it home and work from there. Until further notice. Secure internet connections seem to be holding up OK, so far.
Supermarkets and pharmacies are pretty well stocked in Finland again, after there was a big shopping rush towards the end of last week. If you are planning to burglarize somebody for toilet paper, our place isnt it, though.
Most schools are closed, all sorts of events from concerts to shooting competitions are being canceled.
Supermarkets not doing so well here. Quite a lot of empty shelves...
Seems to me then that they've been doing extremely well.
I shopped today. Yes, there were pockets of empty shelves, and it was busy, but still plenty to go around.
To address the OP I'm 59 I'm told.
Going on 66 and my retirement avocation is learning to play the electric guitar. I am so fortunate to have a great instructor, Epi Special Edition Silverburst Custom Pro, new EC Strat, and a Fender Super Champ. I'm so thankful Eric Clapton is alive and well otherwise he would truly be "rolling over in his grave" at the way I make his guitar sound! Love learning both the art and technology of the guitar. I also would like to thank everyone on this site for sharing their knowledge and wisdom.
Great to hear from you. Please remember that wherever you are at as a musician is exactly where we all were at one point. That includes EC, and I'm sure he'd be nothing but kindness and support if he met you.
The fact you have a teacher will fast-track your progress, I'm sure. As a youngster, I largely got by using the kindness of players who knew better than me, which left gaps in my musical knowledge I'm still trying to fill!
Congrats to you on your 'new avocation' and thank you also for such an uplifting message.
I read that you are 59 on the internet so it must be true.
