      Recommended viewing (dark sense of humour)

      Well, there are many things that you could be doing over the next few months, such as some much postponed DIY work, online learning courses, produce some videos, edit some pictures and making a scrapbook. Alternatively, you could watch a few films and TV series. Hey! That's why we have Sky, Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc. isn't it?

      Re: Recommended viewing (dark sense of humour)

      Hi Wizard200,

      Periodically I've been looking at the flightradar24 site. Earlier this evening the UK was looking devoid of flights. Right now it's suggesting that there are less than 20 planes flying over the UK. This is seriously unprecedented.

      Flights have been arriving early as they haven't needed to queue. Instead of the one plane per minute with them queuing to land at Heathrow, there has been nothing much happening.

      The Atlantic flights that have been showing have almost exclusively been cargo planes. Their numbers are seriously down.

      There is still a large number of domestic flights in the USA. The European airways are considerably quieter. Malta has been getting something like two planes a day.

      There is so much more not happening that you can see on this site, it's a real mind opener.

      Hello All Hope you are All Well
      So Monday started with a whimper rather than a Bang roads to Gatwick almost empty at 7.40
      Instead of Mad Rush like normal ........
      I noticed that the beeb has also released the missing series
      Which was also a very good show plus the split series 1 & 2 all good for Me
      I noticed that Disney + goes live tomorrow around 6 Quid extra nothing free these days but great
      For Kids I suppose you could run with it for the time they are home then drop it later
      But you have to decide when enough is enough or the payments get out of hand easily and you may
      Need the money for something else like Food ...........
      or Beer !!!!

      Just a Thought ...........
