    There are no general elections needed in that case. There will be an election procedure in his party (the Conservatives) though. But let's hope he will recover.

    Coronavirus Updates

    Normally you don't go to a hospital on Sunday for precautionary tests. Those can wait until Monday. Leaders always have trouble to admit that they have health problems. Him going to the ICU that fast after admittance is not a good sign. IMHO. 😢

    How COVID-19 is affecting society

    Breathing can spread the virus too. But we better not stop breathing either. We have to be careful not to become too paranoid over this covid-19 thingy. It is as dangerous/harmless as any other delivery, like ordering a pizza and should be treated the same way. Don't eat the box and wash your...

    Coronavirus Updates

    The virus is not evenly spreading over a country / continent. We have 3 provinces with far above average infection cases (Brabant, Limburg, South Holland) and a few northern provinces with considerable less cases than average. And that all in our tiny country. So it is very hard to compare...

    It is convenient. It is best to be open when most customers are not at work. Makes sense somehow.

    Not over here. Business as usual. Supply trucks are allowed to start delivery earlier in the morning than usual. (I'm not happy: First supply trucks arrive at 5 in the morning under my window now) Some supermarkets are even open longer than usual, because they created a shopping hour for 70+...

    Coronavirus Updates

    So far the intelligent lockdown works. Numbers of new hospitalizations are going down since this week. And what we do over here, is almost exactly what other countries are doing. Only we were doing it already when Bozo Johnson still was downplaying everything. People have to stay inside as...

    De Keukenhof NL, that world famous flower exhibition/garden, attracts normally around one million paying visitors in the six to eight weeks that it is open around Eastern. This year it is due to the corona virus not opening for the public at all. So 2020 is a year without any income and only...

    How COVID-19 is affecting society

    It takes 3 weeks+ before you start to see results of the lock downs and social distancing. Here in NL we are in the situation now, that the number of daily hospitalizations goes slightly down, instead of up like during the last weeks. So yes, social distance, washing hands and stay at home...

    How COVID-19 is affecting society

    [personal opinion] IMHO it could help a little if it is a professional made but non medical use mask. Good luck laying hands on those. When homemade with love and a lot of improvisation, it will help [next to] nothing. Mainly a ceremonial function only. Like sprinkling holy water. Six feet...

    I hope US will not get the same quality as the Netherlands got from their order last week in China. 1 Million masks and 600,000 turn out not to be safe enough for medical use. And also: The US seem to forget that this will not be forgotten after the Corona crisis.

    Nobody cares about food.

    So I read that Aldi has a bread mix that only needs some milk added and you are good to go to bake a bread in the airfryer (I have one). Because the Aldi is really totally stocked again for days in a row now, I went across the street to get me a pack of the bread mix. I wanted to bake a bread...
