  4. The corona virus (Covid 19) Is a novel zoonotic virus - Presently that means no one knows what it can or can't do, in respect of lethality. The Gov.UK is far too SUPERFICIAL by far in this case. The 1918 H1N1 Should be more of a REMINDER FOR EVERYONE CONCERNED (Spanish Flu). - WEB PAGE OF Gov.UK SHOULD HAVE BUT DIDN'T POST IN THIS SPACE - Give people the full & correct information. That what the UK.Gov - Daily Coronavirus Misinformation UD's - Most of the UK Population bought the ''Chocolate-Brexit-Teapot'' They don't need a kettle from the same BADJ to find out they are of no use. There's no known cure for Novel Covid 19 & it continues to mutate!!! Sunday, 2020-April-05 8:20 AM () The NOVEL corona virus - Covid 19 an Gov.UK.doc I felt so aghast at the lack of information on the Gov.UK site, I posted the above message. Spuggy!!! PS. Yes I do have knowledge of Zoonosis & Zoonotic Virus disease. Das Bundes-Seuchengesetz vom 18. Juli 1961 war ein Gesetz zur Verhütung und Bekämpfung übertragbarer Krankheiten beim Menschen. ''The Federal Epidemics & Pandemics Law of 18th July 1961 to Prevent & Contain the Spread of Contagious Disease in Humans'' This was included in the Master Studies i sat in Berlin in the 1980's - & I still have vivid memories of what could or can even be possible. Zweck des Gesetzes ist es, übertragbaren Krankheiten vorzubeugen, Infektionen frühzeitig zu erkennen und ihre Weiterverbreitung zu verhindern (§ 1 Abs. 1 IfSG). Dabei ist unerheblich, welcher Art die Infektion ist und auf welchem Wege die Infektion erfolgen kann. Vorgängerregelung war das Reichsseuchengesetz aus den Jahr 1900. Das BSeuchG wurde am 1. Januar 2001 durch das Gesetz zur Verhütung und Bekämpfung von Infektionskrankheiten beim Menschen (Infektionsschutzgesetz) abgelöst, nachdem das gesamte, im Wesentlichen aus den 1950er und 1960er Jahren stammende Seuchenrecht umfassend novelliert werden sollte. 2001 January 01st. updated & now covered by Das deutsche Infektionsschutzgesetz (IfSG) My humble advice, mask your mouth & nose, it doesn't hurt & it does more to prevent the spread, than by having no cover. There are so many modern scarfs available, or dig out 'Dad's Balaclava'! If you have Champagne in the cellar, drink it. . . This is not a joke!!! I think my last Post was a joke on me ''Corbyn will Prevail'' He had the chance to bring the country (as is) together! Until the Labour Party Conference in Brighton (That was) & a more than obvious show of hands vote stitch up, a piece of advice Mr. JC-Trotzy, beware of 'Eispickel' I'll try to elucidate & Breakdown on the 'Chocolate-Brexit-Teapot' That has divided the country & families for good, it was never necessary, as you will surely find out with the chocolate kettle, in the prevailing not too distant future. Britannia Unchained: Global Lessons for Growth and Prosperity! A political book written by several British Conservative Party MPs and released on 13 September 2012. Its authors present a treatise, arguing that Britain should adopt a different and radical approach to business and economics or risk "an inevitable slide into mediocrity". They call (DISGUISE) & hide themselves as the FRG & ERG subsidised by your Tax money. What is the ERG & which Tory MPs are members of Boris Johnson's Brexit Parliament? Also find out about 'Perfidious Albion'' on ''SPEED''?
  5. I lived at 15a moorside I would be about 4 years old I can remember mr tylers chippie and a school.
  6. Hi Symptoms long time since we've spoke hope your potatoes still cooking well in your spoon of oil🤔 I'm living in the land of Viktor Orban, don't think my mate mr Lavery would be impressed with that. Anyway remember the Howard arms was a Vaux pub Lorimers scotch on offer there rank the Sun & The Monkey were Cameron's Hartlepool brewer didn't like there strongarm & when Betty Stewart had the Northumberland arms it was a whitbread house unusual for a pub in Northumberland I believe but the worst beer in my opinion was Newcastle Amber ale it tasted like rats p*** anyway symptoms nice to see your about
  7. Hi Sue ... yep, Terry made contact through this Forum. Look at the second post above ... that's Terry; you can send a personal message to him by sliding your curser over his user name TGH and click on message button in the box that appears.
  8. As to Canny's confusion over "... publicans who appear to have had a second string to their fiddle ...". I recall reading years ago that many of the original ale houses were in private dwelling and that the wife of the main breadwinner would brew some jugs of ale* for immediate family. This expanded into to offering the ale to others for a price ... of course this brew had to be consumed soon after being made as it went off (this was before the use of hops to extend the life {and taste} of the ale). So perhaps this activity was formalised and acknowledged in census records. *remember back then that the drinking of water tended to be avoided in case you got ill (likely) and that ale drinking was seen as being a safe option.
  9. Tonyp's earlier post about the vile Worthington E muck got me thinking about a challenge ... That impressive list of boozers elsewhere on this thread could be complimented by naming the breweries that owned them; I know that it'll be impossible to do it for many of them 'cos the old fellas that supped in them are long gone but I'll make a start. The Railway Tavern = Vaux (that vile Mackem stuff) I suppose the Clubs were a type of 'free house' so were able to sell stuff other that Federation Ales. I know there was a Cameron pub (that Smoggie stuff) but can't recall the name of the pub and of course loads of Scottish & Newcastle ones (Blue Star). Go on ... you've got nowt else to do with your time at the moment.

  12. A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope. Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog". She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours. The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass. But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them. The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them." At ChronicleLive, we’re proud to be part of the NHS Heroes campaign, which aims to make sure all the amazing people of this wonderful organisation know exactly how much they mean to the nation. We’re asking you to show them love by helping us create a living map of gratitude from every corner of Britain.

  14. Just one punch can lead to such devastating consequences. From broken jaws and fractured skulls, single acts of violence in the region have not only caused long-lasting serious injury. Some families will know how lucky they are that their son or daughter survived their injuries, but other families have had their lives wrecked. Lives have been lost with a number of victims unable to recover from the horrific injuries they sustained from a single punch. While some one-punch attackers have faced time behind bars, others have been able to walk free from court. We take a look at seven people who have been brought before the courts across the North East in recent years for a one-punch attack.
  15. For those who may still be confused, this may - or may not - help. personally, I think it's more relevant to social isolation than social distancing:
  16. Always wet your toothbrush folks.
  17. The orange juice bottle was a squared off rectangular bottle, my first experience of a spirit level! thanks to my creative dad. Wasn't that juice nice? bit nicer than the cod-liver oil the rest of our family had....
  18. Aye, I've only got 6,000 bog rolls left.
  19. Had to wet the brush to rub it in............. I was still getting a little bottle of milk or orange juice at school at the time! One thing I do remember........quite a few kids used to pass out at assembly and I asked my old man why? "Poor buggars haven't got enough to eat!". Nostalgia isn't always rose tinted!
  20. Home quarantine, days 6-10: Keeping the home-fires burning in 2022. There are two more behind me. #Winning at social isolation!
  21. That's it! But, as I remember it, it wasn't a powder, more a block of - something rather like a soap. You wet the toothbrush and worked up a sort of 'lather' on the block and then brushed your teeth with it. Tasted vile!
  22. Hell's bells Malcolm .... I didn't think you were that old!
  23. h Hells bells Canny lass......I almost remember that. Little round tin with pink powder in........
  24. Anybody remember a capaign in infant schools in the early 1950s to promote good hygiene? Or maybe it was just Netherton? At the infant school we all had to have a toilet bag with a soap (in a proper soap box), a toothbrush and toothpaste (Gibbs dentifrice - small round tin with a pink block of something that tasted like Germolene ointment), a comb and a face flannel. These bags hung on our coat pegs and during the morning we were lined up at the few sinks to take turns at being instructed in their use. Now's a good time to bring a bit of that back - the soap and hand-washing. Good on ya Greggs! How about a few pasties for the nursing staff of the area.
  25. ... I hope that's because of involuntary knee jerks and not an overactive cough reflex! Seriously, I hope you've cut the missus loose from the kitchen stove so that she can pander to your every need and have you up and about soon!
  26. Unfortunately I have no idea. It was installed within Facebook on my old Windows Vista Desktop PC and it still keeps it's dictionary up to date but the version/release number is not displayed anywhere. I said above it was four years ago but I think it's more like six + years as the stats show I have played over 4,000 games. When I switch on my Windows 10 PC I will see if that gives the version number. Don't hold your breath, I'm struggling to get out of bed at the moment - my diary is more like Ann Franks = Day 1 Hid - day 2 Hid - Day 3 Hid........................
