  1. Your icy stare probably dissuaded them from further investigation. 😉 Ed
  2. Ok, thanks. So how does that work? Is that information relating to the 'owner' rather than the 'operator'? Ed
  3. With which organisation? If you search for the IMO number you get Condor Voyager. Is your tracking page perhaps out of date or needs refreshing? Ed
  4. Sorry, I wasn't meaning Italy in my circumstances but more the general restrictions which are likely to be replicated across Europe. For me it's France, obviously, but there needs to be some workable strategy to allow families to meet up. Ed
  5. The BBC is reporting that Italy will impose a 5-day quarantine on visitors traveling from the UK from Monday. My children have not seen their grandfather for 18 months now and were hoping to do so in September. This open/closed cycle needs to either stop or be replaced with something more workable. I suggest a financial incentive. Each adult traveller transfers €500 into a governmen-managed account before leaving(accompanied children are free) and provides a vaccine certificate and a negative test at check-in. They are then retested free of charge on days 2 and 5 but are allowed to
  6. Yes, I'd agree. The outbreaks seen in Bordeaux and elsewhere a few weeks ago seen to have fizzled out due to surge testing and by trying to vaccinate as many people as possible in the areas concerned (even if that might not have an immediate effect it perhaps encouraged them to get a test before presenting at the vaccination centre). Ed
  7. It's estimated to represent between 2 and 4% of infections right now, up from 1% in late May. The real number may be higher but varient sequencing is far less common in France then the UK although they are increasingly doing so. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.lexpress.fr/actualite/societe/sante/covid-19-le-variant-delta-progresse-une-mutation-sous-haute-surveillance-en-france_2153174.amp.html&ved=2ahUKEwjWzNrj-KLxAhUGjhQKHdUjDhIQFjAPegQIJxAC&usg=AOvVaw3DY92VEhOf7x8sFjKVzs_X&ampcf=1 Ed
  8. 1st interesting fact of the evening...hornets can survive a surprisingly long time when stabbed through the thorax. 2nd interesting fact of the evening...they appear to contain some sort of blood-like substance which has now stained my favourite hornet-crusing stone (a granite block brought back from Jersey). Ed
  9. Today was apparently National Picnic Day! And it has not stopped raining in Hampshire once according to my father. Tomorrow is presumably National Ark-Building Day. Ed
  10. I think they are targeting the, ahem, younger generation but it's worth a try! 😂 Ed
  11. Here it is. https://bfenthusiasts.com/bfe/topic/13630-fsg-hull-no-774-a-new-chapter/?do=findComment&comment=235378 Ed
  12. There is a thread somewhere with recent photos which do seem to show the crane structure I believe. Ed
