Thinking about things to cheer some people up on this board, I wondered about this fella.
Haven't heard from him since his previous, dark post.
Would be good to check in with us, mate so we know you're all right.

Does anyone outside of the board know who he is and maybe a contact number?

Good to hear you're okay mate. :thumb

Things are tough right now and there is a lot of bad news so I don't blame you avoiding the news.

Make sure you chat with your family or mates if you are ever feeling down. It is not a taboo subject any more (it should never have been).

Take care.

Cheers

I agree with Dinksy. I feel this is good advice for anytime but especially so at the moment.

It’s hard to do. But certainly makes for a more peaceful and less stressful life. As does the absence of sport!

Welcome back.

Good that you are back in contact Mr D Nuts.
I got to agree with you regarding media hibernation.
The news. Everything is the same regurgitated depressing advice combined with sniping at the powers that be who either a) have not responded quickly enough, b) not responded at all c) need to respond or d) not responded the same as Italy/Germany/S Korea, etc. FFS this is an unprecedented situation, there is no manual to refer to. They are doing the best they can and to my mind doing it bloody well in the circumstances.
Adverts on Telly. Totally irrelevant and out of step with the current situation. Understandably as space is booked so far in advance, but I bet I'm not the only one that is getting irritated. Water Aid for Africa........sorry you are nowhere near the top of any begging list. Donkeys, cats - don't get me started. Holidays, yep just rub it in why don't you?
Facebook. Now full of banal "10 things that...." and "best way" advice and "copy and share" The modern version of the chain letter. Yuk.
LinkedIn. The business community concern for each other is now being replaced by a hard sell tactic by some, who are either feeling the pinch or are preying like vultures. There is still a lot of good feeling though, so this is now the only format I regularly log into.

Great post ba

In a former life I had responsibility for emergency response in the NF. Biggest I had to deal with was major flooding in Lymington due to a break in the sea wall. But it was nothing like this. As you say, everyone is doing their best. Mistakes will be made. Even great minds aren’t perfect. You can get a First with 70%!

That pretty much sums it up BA !!! I gave up Facebook over a year ago , full of people who seem to know best how to run the world yet can't even run their own lives .
I agree about the adverts too . I was flipping channels and noticed an advert with a couple of nice boys flogging cruises , I mean really ?
