  1. No. But there isn't much we can do to stop the English coming to Cornwall.
  2. It must depend very much on what you expect and what you are used to. Around Rostrenen and Pontivy the Intermarche and le Clerc shops are very good but Super U is terrible.
  3. I'd rather have an empty pland and an empty ferry😀. Flew on a Jumbo once with seven passengers to ten crew.
  4. My science teacher at school drummed into us kids a simple maxim. In science, to get the right answer you must ask the right question. Defining the question is the hard part.
  5. "According to SpF data, Finistère has the highest incidence rate in Brittany with 5.4 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared with 2.6 in Ille-et-Vilaine, 1.9 in Côtes-d’Armor, and 0.79 in Morbihan. That compares with a rate of 449 per 100,000 inhabitants for England as a whole and 230 and 377 for the South West and South East of England respectively." My French holiday cottage is on the border between Cotes d'Armor and Morbihan. Good to see that a half kilometre walk will make me twice as safe. 😃
  6. There used to be a plane service from Lydd to Le Touquet.
  7. My surgery is operating more smoothly during lockdown. I get telephone appointments easily and have blood tests by appointment as normal.
  8. I've seen numerous posts and threads from members here about booking early. Some are even getting twitchy about the 2021 timetable while we are still in a pandemic. Is there any point to booking early? I rarely book more than a week in advance and have rarely not had a sailing and a cabin. I seem to have saved myself a load of hassle over refunds, changes, vouchers and all that stuff.
  9. I'd guess to give a choice between a sophisticated City and a seaside resort for foot passengers. I don't know what Bilbao is like but Santander is hardly a big investment, its just a quayside.
  10. Because if your doctor is any good he would have ordered a set of tests, blood, urine and BP before prescribing antibiotics again.
  11. Over use of antibiotics is one of the major problems of our time. Estimates for dealing with the problem are close to double what dealing with climate change could cost. While the main source of the problem lies with farmers, especially those in the USA, anything to limit antibiotic resistance in humans is to be welcomed.
  12. I used to work above Vidal Sasson's salon in Bond Street years ago. His customers expected to be in there for 5 hours.
  13. More interesting than some TV programmes.
  14. Surely he would just quarantine at home in France?
  15. Looking at the view of Osaka, Japan it looks very like normal. Even without Covid 19 the Japanese wear masks to prevent spread of colds.
