What an unusual Spring this is!

Dear friends! In the previous thread I was wondering what the Spring would be like this year. Now we know it's most 'odd' due to the covid-19 virus. The world isn't the same it was only a few weeks ago. I hope we will all stay in good health and keep an optimistic mind. Better times will come - sooner or later!

Just having an early supper of scrambled eggs and ham while cutting up some magazines and listening to the Radio.
Knutis Weekly fills the gap by showing the lovely cubs.
Yesterday while out shopping I noticed a lot more crows and blackbirds than usual, which is not such good news for smaller birds.
I had to laugh when I saw someone drive past with a dog on the back seat as his only passenger. But there are far fewer people and cars around.
I found an old friend from work on Facebook. He and his wife moved to France a few years ago. Another friend and his wife have just returned from there, deciding that the UK was more to their taste aftee all. An old friend I worked with in Khartoum keeps me posted on his family. A young Rwandese woman I knew in the mid 90s now has grown up children and is married to a Swede and living there.
The daily News on the Radio is churning away. In typical British fashion we are muddling through. It will be interesting to see if people accept the higher taxes that will come to pay the bills. People are looking enviously at Germany and Denmark fir their much better resourced healthcare. I will be surprised if cash poor Brits will be willing to pay for health insurance and more national and local taxes. People seem to always believe someone else should pay.
Still, we have been able to use the military arts learnt in Afghanistan and Iraq to build new emergency hospitals in exhibition and conference centres in London and other major cities.
I will look in later to have a nightcap with Uncle Sergej

Good morning! Guten Morgen! After a moonlit night the sun is shining.

Ludmila - Thanks for the Herkules! I hope Uwe is getting better today.

Yeo - It's good you're on the sick leave now! Your knee needs time to be good again. I hope the old people in 'your' nursing home have avoided to get the corona virus.

Today I have something new in KWM for you! I made a potpourri of photos & videos of MALIK'S TWINS, INUVIK AND FINJA! Of course, a cuteness alarm is needed!

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Liebe Grü�e zur Mittagszeit!

@ Ludmila
Gute Besserung für deinen Mann.

Gestern hatte meine Tochter Geburtstag. Heute Nachmittag kommt sie zu Besuch. Eine Person darf ja. Ich freue mich schon sehr.

Gestern war ich auch beim Arzt. Ich bin wieder einen Monat krankgeschrieben. Es geht noch nicht gut. Auf der Stra�e brauche ich noch eine Krücke.

Ich wünsche euch allen einen schönen Tag.
Bleibt alle gesund!

Chris - I could admire the full moon, too. There were no clouds in the sky for a change! :D

Ludmila - I hope you join us and have a Fullmoon Cocktail!

GUTEN ABEND

We had a beautiful moonrise in the evening!
Today is fullmoon - moon is near to earth. :)

There were some clouds in the afternoon.
But no rain - we had about 24C today. :)

LUDMILA - speedy recovery for Uwe !

MERVI - I will check KWM later. :)

I am at the bar for a drink. :)
Maybe a Fullmoon-Cocktail ?

Good day! Guten Tag!

Dumba - thanks for the link. I'll check it later!

Chris - Now we have double reason to do our best to avoid getting corona! Mimmi and Nalle are 'Stubentigers' and nobody's visiting us so they should be reasonably safe. - I hope the tigers in the Bronx Zoo will recover!

Britta-Gudrun - I hope both you and Django are OK!

Ludmila - Hopefully Uwe is recovering well from his flu.

Ralph - Even an ordinary sandwich tastes better when somebody else makes it! :D - I'm not a Boris Johnson fan but I wish him a speedy recovery anyway!

Patricia - How are you feeling today? I hope better! At least it's your favouriet day Tuesday.

I've published one of my 'savings' in KWM. Gudrun visited PIT & PAULE AND, OF COURSE, KATJUSCHA in the end of february and you can see her photos now in our magazine.

I wish everybody a pleasant Tuesday! Stay home if you can! Take care!

Hoping that Patricia and Uwe will get better soon.
I went out for my weekly shop and also to spend some time in the lovely sunshine. I really miss being able to pop into Greggs for a porridge pot or bacon roll and coffee. It always tasted better than having them at home.
My isolation seems to be working so far. I am hoping that the situation here will get better in a few weeks.
I was talking to a friend of mine who works in healthcare and he said that being ventilated is very hard and painful, which is why if you are frail or unwell it is a difficult treatment. I am doing my best to avoid getting Corona.
I will look in later to see what Uncle Sergej has got for us.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

Uwe hat wahrscheinlich eine Grippe. Er hat am Sonntag Fieber und Gliederschmerzen bekommen. Diese Nacht hat er aber gut geschlafen.
Britta-Gudrun
Im Zoo-Bronx haben sich die Tiger vom Pfleger mit dem Virus angesteckt.

Dumba, die Sendung habe ich rein zufällig schon vor deinem Hinweis gesehen und Ommis brauchen kein Homeoffice mehr, da gebe ich dir Recht!

Bleibt alle gesund!

GUTEN MORGEN

LUDMILA - ich denke, Du meinst eine Erkaeltung und keine Grippe?
Natuerlich denkt man bei grippeaehnlichen Symptomen jetzt immer
sofort an Corona - auch Patricia wird wohl eine Erkaeltung haben.

MERVI - Katzen koennen Covid19 be-
kommen. Im Bronx-Zoo hat ein Tiger
sich mit Corona infiziert. Hunde koen-
nen wohl nicht erkranken...

BRITTA - das Saarland hat mehr Corona
Faelle als NRW - wie kann das sein ?

DUMBA - was fuer ein Ehrenamt ?

Ich wuensche allen einen guten Tag!
Melde mich wahrscheinlich erst abends.

Good evening Dear All, before going to bed, a quick hello here.
When I woke up yesterday morning, I was definitely not feeling good. Only energy to feed the cats and than back to my bed for another hour. During the bed, it was kind of blablabla (no force). During the night, it was just hell: restless, fever, not able to sleep and so forth.
Well, Ludmila, I think that I have more or less the same as Uwe and therefore will go to bed soon again.

GUTEN ABEND

We have the summer now.
Many trees have blossoms.
Its the smell of spring - we
must see the positiv things!

Ich hoffe, die Leute bleiben
vernuenftig bei diesem Wetter.
Ich meide die Radwege - es
sind zuviel Menschen unter
wegs, man kann sich dort
nicht ausweichen. :roll:

I hope, everybody is o.k.?
No time, to read all postings.
Ihr habt zuviel geschrieben...

Hello folks!
Uwe has a flu. He is doing well now. He spent a day with reading in the sun.
Britta-Gudrun
Homeoffice funktioniert, wie ein normaler Arbeitstag. Es gibt ein Programm, das erlaubt mir in Netz von unserem Institute mich einwaehlen. Dadurch kann ich mein Software benutzen und an meinem Programm arbeiten. Ich kann meine Mails lesen und schreiben. Man muss auch telefonisch erreichbar sein. Webkonferenzen sind nicht vorgeschrieben.
