    What y'all listening to?

    A 1970s fiesta for this evening. Van Der Graaf...my first gig to see a band... deaf for an hour after Tom Verlaine...enigmatic Caravan...love this clip Steely Dan..."at the grotto with the greasy chair sits the Charlie with the lotion and the kinky hair" and a guitar solo simulating a couple (filter prevents)

    ..."but now we are a business".. If the club wasn't a business then we would have no club to support

    Thank you for reporting about what you are experiencing. It is a terrible worry for you and your sister in law. 15-20 people per day sounds pathetic in terms of testing capacity. How long does each test take? Thought it might only be a matter of minutes. Obviously not.

    I've often wondered that if I was to walk into the room where the current cabinet was meeting then my presence would raise the collective IQ. And I'm as thick as **** Whilst I am making a joke....anyway, I might welcome some new talent and serious thinking people coming into a shadow government. I was never convinced by Corbyn (perhaps he might have been okay on a former polytechnic board of trustees), nor MacDonald or Abbott. Maybe even more.

    It's just business and many others will follow.

    Perhaps a return to having a properly funded science /biomed sector will be a major bonus if/as and when we come out of this as Hancock intimated.

    Great minds E. Did you see the Switzerland numbers per million? Very interesting looking at their numbers, rates and hints at a strategy?

    Report I posted here this morning (Guardian) states that we cannot trust those death figures though. They are often wildly out of date lagging by weeks in some cases. The figures depend on efficiency in reporting. Also they are a lagging measure. I agree we cannot read too much. It still hasn't stopped me trying to interpret those graphs though.

    Certainly it appears daily cases are levelling in terms of new numbers (going up but not increasing). Up 3,735 today.

    That also chimes with that village called Vo in N Italy. Plus studies coming from Iceland (50% of of those tested were positive but had no/very few symptoms)

    If it is true then that supports the medical expert on yesterday's media briefing that he didn't think we were at capacity regarding ventilators. I remain sceptical when we are also told the peak numbers a yet to come. That statement and this graph don't fit easily together.

    Interesting to see who might populate the shadow cabinet. Perhaps Yvette Cooper, Hilary Benn? Rachel Reeves seems as if she may have a big role in it, plus Lucy Powell.

    Yeah, his books are a challenge. I learnt about a lovely concept and word 'enantiodromia' from him (essentially about opposite forces and change). Also the word 'syzygy' which must be the most amazing word ever! These things aside, he was the person who inspired a career though!

    Cheers Keelan. Never seen that. Incredible he just taught himself to play keyboards by just 'feeling' his way around it. Same for his drumming, bass playing and saxophone. I love listening to his thoughts on life too (quite a few interviews online).
