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.

Covid and it's many mutations. Mother nature clearing out the dead wood making way for the new. Been this way for many millions of years, it's called evolution.

Matt Hancock admits it is 'highly likely' Britons will face annual Covid jabs.

They already know that Covid is not beatable, as is the flu and common cold. It has mutated, and will continue to mutate and adapt each year to survive. Mother nature is a force that balances life on Earth. The human spieces have become too prolific and will now pay the price.

Hello, all you folks living in Alaska. Greenland, Iceland, or in an igloo or cabin in any other remote, cold, hostile environment, maybe Tibet. Please help the likes of me get through this pandemic. Do you have any tips?

@boblet42, You are like myself, mature and wise with money. Unfortunatly this countrys life styles are in a different universe. Everything seems to be on the never never, want it now. These are the ones that will not survive financially or mentally in the coming years. You only have to look at the family breakups caused by money probs. With this upcoming budget many in serious debt will be destroyed.

I think you are wrong J. I count myself as average. I am not spending anything like I used to, during this pandemic. I have gone back to the days when "earn a pound, spend nineteen & six" was the Chancellors rule. The elephant in the room is the evil gambling on the net.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, has announced that the government will publish the Budget on Wednesday 3 March 2021.

Get ready for the eye watering, butt clenching, chest palpitations that will be felt by a great many people as they face the UK's financial recovery through their taxes, and newly invented ones. The Government gave in one hand to help, but they will be forced to take it all back in the other.

Rishi Sunak unveils £4.6bn relief package for UK retail and hospitality sectors

Anybody questioning where Sunak is getting all this give away money from?
If you have prem bonds, maybe that's the answer. There used to be billions in the UK governments wallet, I wonder how much is left!!!!!!

UK draws up plans to mix coronavirus vaccines
In event that first dose becomes unavailable people could be given second shot with different product.

I say give the mixed doses to the wealthy, NHS bosses, politicians, etc first. Let those that propose it be first to see what happens!!!!

Ah yes, that works too. But if it's a good one by all means press "send".

P.S. I know the search doesn't work - yet. I still haven't pasted in the code. Got distracted by New Year.

I do not know about you folks? but sometimes I write out a gripe, then I erase it because I feel so much better for having written it. HaHa

Merry Christmas all. It's been a year I think we'd all rather forget, here's hoping 2021 is much better and we can at least do some of the things we did before.

I probably shouldn't do some of those things though :-) :-)
