There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

I go away for a week and the spammers (and trolls) go on a rampage. Takes way less time to remove the rubbish than they spend posting. Futile, so go play on Facebook.

New gripe coming shortly.

Please note, I'm implementing a notification facility to replace the old email alerts which Google depreciated. However, it's not hooked up yet so you'll need to subscribe again later once it's working. I'll post up a message when it is.

Hi Boblet, we just got back last week two (my wife's mum lives there and we haven't seen her for nearly 2 years). Was pretty straight forward, locator form on the way out, test 2 days before return and two days after returning.

Just back from Spain, believe me, they are more Covid conscious than us. But I warn anybody going to be prepared for the covid requirements you will need to leave Spain & reenter the UK it was a nightmare.

I am off to Spain soon on a car ferry. I will then drive from A to B as the mood takes me. Keep a social distance when not in the car. I have had two jabs. I do not understand Spanish so I will have a break from politicians & their bunkum.

Thank you.

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, UK. The roads are jammed up with hol makers, shops are packed to bursting, the sea front is a mass of sweaty bodies.... And guest what, there's a reported rise in Covid cases. Give it another week and the infection rates will be hard to hide. Good luck UK, COVID'S not finished with you yet.

I have listened to the myriad opinions of others, with reference to life. Some opinions I have understood, some I have not. Some I have agreed with, some I have not. I am as perplexed as ever. I still do not know where I am? or what I am? Maybe soon I will learn the true answer. I know for certain that if the answer is here, it is perfectly hidden.

Only the fittest and strongest of any spieces that can adapt will survive. Covid (and all the viral mutations that we are seeing) are here to correct the imbalance of inferior living creatures on planet Earth. The human race is one of the spieces that are too prolific and causing problems. This realignment may take time, but in the end it will happen.

We were all led to believe that Covid can be beaten by jabs???? Think again. Covid has made one thing clear, the human race is it's feeding ground and it will not stop until it's ready to stop. The human race is not invinsible. Mother nature keeps things in balance.

Here's a conundrum. If all white people are racist simply because we are white, then how can we ever stop being racist or be accepted as not racist?

Nul points again: how exactly can the UK win against Eurovision?

Simply by telling the EU to shove their crap show up their Arses. I get the feeling this hatred for the UK is driven by Brussels common market politicians and Brexit jealousy on their part. Screw them.

Fears of Covid third wave as India variant cases more than double in a week.

As human beings we do love playing Russian Roulette with fate. Any bets on the date of the next total UK lockdown?

"Indian variant ‘will get everywhere’ as cases double for second week in a row"
Scientists fear the strain will become dominant in UK.

Mother nature works in wondrous ways when there is an imbalance of the species on planet Earth. Mankind has still not accepted it must change it's ways to survive. Maybe Covid, or what will follow, will be the big stick to do just that.

Good day all. I've created an app to get rid of hiccups - one that actually works, based on a breathing exercise I've used for years.

Would appreciate any feedback, even better a 5**** rating if you like it.

Thanks (is actually me btw!)
