  1. When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
  2. I thought that complaint had been eradicated, though, my Aunt Dolly always used to rub an ointment in that area when I used to get it!
  3. Regret to say. In patients who were hospitalised with severe coronavirus disease (COVID-19), treatment with lopinavir-ritonavir did not provide a substantial benefit beyond standard care, according to the results of a Chinese clinical trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine (Chinese Clinical Trial Register number: ChiCTR2000029308). Link to NEJM
  4. I watched most of the depressing videos but gave up as, I can see this happening in the UK soon one day. But thanks for the insight.
  5. France confirmed 19 additional cases of coronavirus late Friday. That brings the total in the European country to 57, and health officials cautioned an epidemic was now imminent. “We are preparing for an epidemic,” French Health Minister Olivier Véran said. He added that “we are now moving to stage two. The virus is circulating in our country and we must stop its spread.”
  6. I wonder if this has any relevance to the Debit/Credit card reader problems on the PA & CAP?
  7. Though will 2020 bookings be sluggish in light of a possible no deal departure from the EU?
  8. Thanks for your info. Off in a couple of weeks time, I've booked a two berth deluxe cabin forward on deck 8, hope that's OK, same cabin out and back, coming back in mid October so hope the Biscay is still calm then. Bit concerned you mention that some cars are stowed on open deck areas.
  9. Ten years of Pont Aven to Santander I've decided to try the Cap Finistere out and back to Bilbao in a coupe of weeks. Any tips, advice most welcome, dinning, best time to arrive at Portsmouth (from Guildford). I notice that the new BF website does not show onboard menus anymore.
  10. I follow BF on Twitter, (@BrittanyFerries) there isn’t any official BF remark regarding the PA status.
  11. Very good and important point.
  12. Spot on info. Halifax and Nationwide no charged EU use and you get the bank rate for the conversion. Avoid Amex.
  13. There are quite a few unbelievable and careless driving videos of Russian cars & trucks on YouTube, Viewer beware, some are quite horrendous, I drove a truck from the UK around the iron curtain some 30 years ago, a bit hairy!
