    It's quiet in the UK, when I went running yesterday the park was mostly empty and people who were there seemed to be following the rules.

    Unfortunately last night I started feeling feverish with aches and pains plus a mild cough. This morning my fever seems to have burnt itself out and overall I'm feeling better. The one consolation is I've had contact with hardly anyone the last few days so hopefully no transmission has occurred.

    Time to find some things to do round the house for the next week.

    I really loved the original game and subsequent reboot. The colours were really beautiful to look at and movement was a joy, I might actually dig it out again to play.

    Yup it's not any one thing, more the combination of panicky actions across society.

    Mmmm I feel you right now. My 90 year old Grandma goes shopping once a fortnight and when she got there yesterday many standard items were gone due to panic buying (I've given her a few bits to get by for now). Very frustrating that vulnerable people are the most impacted by irrational behaviour.

    Panic is just as dangerous as the virus. I find meditation helps me relax and take stock of the situation.

    I'll volunteer that I was the one who gave it an exemplary tag. Your response is good, but the noise tag was unneeded.

    Yesterday I downloaded Wipeout from PS Plus which is bringing back some nostalgic memories.

    I've done this a lot with people I know from other sites. Obviously check their background if you're not that familiar with them, overall it's a great way to grow the site imo.
