    By any chance are you Chinese and taking the hump? We know they have plenty of bots actively posting everywhere spreading lies even before this. Which is well documented as are most of these things he has said. Let’s be realistic he himself posted to say he had been arrested and told not to...

    That’s cause China handled it properly not pussy footing about changing tactics every other day. The also moved 30,000 doctors and nurses into Hubei Province and lots of medical equipment. Chinese people listen to what there told and acted responsibly and quarantined them self’s as soon as this...

    Yep that is our business we have 5 and even with mortgage holidays will be still paying insurance and boiler cover for each which probably adds up to around 400/500 plus a month . So no income and a lot that has to go out, I can’t claim benefits as technically I’m not working it’s investment so...

    That’s all and good for most people and I understand it’s likely needed but what about the people that have a business renting property, with mortgages. Most off our income comes from our rental business so 3 months off no rent, which they have considered mean 3 months of little to no money and...

    Panic Buying

    Also not sure if anyone saw the article online about the two brothers in America that went around and bought all the sanitizer in a few states(10s of 1000s) and were selling it at $20 a bottle after it cost them $2 each and they thought it was only fair and were annoyed that amazon had banned...

    Panic Buying

    I think that people are rightly and wrongly stocking up. The U.K. government and population seem to mainly be burying there heads in the sand or acting like it’s not a large issue. We are literally one of the last countries in the EU and world to still have our schools running. We have only...

    We went for our normal sat morning shop at Morrison’s today and decided to go abit earlier at 8:30ish when we arrived the car park was fairly full a lot more than normal. Shop was busy with a lot of full trolleys and empty sections on shelf’s. Heard two staff talking by the checkouts saying...

    You will find that it was Russia that started and is pushing the America made disease thing. And as for apologising that’s asking abit much, did America apologise when they caused the last financial crisis, did Britain apologise for spreading its empire across the world and enslaving millions...

    I do wonder if this is affecting people in different ways... I’ve just had a look into a few threads tonight’s and everyone seems to be bickering over nothing [emoji23] the virus might just be turning everyone mad.

    I’m still not sure China is reporting it properly, the amount off lockdown they have had online and the no. Of People who have disappeared after posting online about it or criticising the government is bad. I’m half way though a thing on YouTube showing lots of footage I hadn’t seen before...

    View: https://youtu.be/nSXIetP5iak On another note my wife’s family want us to book the first flights we can and go back to China until it’s all over. Not sure if that’s the best idea or not. They seem to have it a lot more under control anyway. We have more infected now than Shanghai has...

    Yeah seems to only be available in Asia and America though. There was a high end buffet we used to visit in Shanghai which included all u could eat Haagen Dazs. Think I averaged about 10 scoops each time we went[emoji200]

    Still can’t believe you can’t get Haagen dazs matcha ice cream in the U.K. , has to be one of my favourite flavours. At least you can get Starbucks matcha frapachino’s here now even if there slightly sweeter

    me and the wife have been talking about this recently... no country will handle it and control it as well as china has and it is likely safer there. she can't get over the fact that the advise is just wash your hands and they are still carrying on with the Scotland/france rugby Sunday like...

    Some images I took last week for a friend at his work. He was needing images for the website showing them working. So I dropped by for an hour in the middle of dinner service, reasonably happy with them.But was kind of restricted in where I could stand/ shoot as they were busy and similarly the...

    Only a matter of time before we all have it here. You were lucky you got the trip when you did,it seems more and more flights and restrictions have started to alit more places. Still gutted our China trip was cancelled and don’t think we will be going anywhere else now.

    China’s economy collapsing will result in the world economy collapsing far worse than the recessions we have had over the past 10 years. They hold something stupid like 75% of all us national debt also. Which would crush the US. They said with sars the world economy lost 40billion and I’m...

    Strangely enough after reading your post I was talking to someone a few hours later how was saying the exact same thing. He had been out in Africa during the Ebola crisis and said this was only just starting. His thoughts were that so far it was mainly contained to China but now clusters were...

    Dog Food

    Have to say I’ve recently spent a lot of time looking at dog food. Royal canin is what your new puppy cane bring fed on and as soon as I could I changed. It’s expensive and is actually one of the worse for just being full of fillers with no actual meat content. The nutritional value is...

    Finally been going through LR and deleting or editing images. I’ve now had the camera a year and I’ve really not used it as much as I should, but I’m still absolutely shocked at the keeper rate with it. I’ve got in the habit of bursting when I’m shooting and even with my Nikon I would have so...

    Tamron and prime. Not used the Sony but the tamron seems as good as my old Nikon and expect going by reviews it’s as good as the Sony 95% of the time but it’s a lot cheaper and smaller.

    Canon EOS R Series Cameras

    really its just double the resolution, then many could argue handling and colour science(though people would say its been debunked many a time) if its capable of similar AF/iso and buffer then they will be a step ahead. I will be interested to see what they price it at though. the RF glass how...
