Check in here from time to time. Let us know if you aren't well. Not sure what we can do to help, except be unusually kind and supportive!
Can you lend us a fiver until the end  of the week?

I’m still in the game, but definitely playing defense at the moment. There is also the complication that I started out in the hospital for another reason and just picked up the virus as part of a package deal. As best as I can tell, what lies between me and my comfy chair at home is now at least 80% related to PT type of work to make me pseudo-functional. I’m less sure what lies between me and a fully functioning brain. Wine, most likely...

I don't wish harm to anyone, (and I mean *anyone*), but I do wonder about Trump's negative test.

If you were exposed yesterday or the day before and took the test today, you might test negative for now.

We'll see.  But something put fear into him a few days ago. Tough talk from his advisers maybe...

That's really nice that you should ask!  Very considerate, I am genuinely touched.  :)
Yes, doing fine,  am plague free and healthy.. or as health as I always was, to be more accurate.
Hope everyone else is getting through all this as best as possible. Have had a few friends struck down
and it sounds horrible.

To be completely honest, as soon as we were sent to WFH and all these lockdown measures were announced. I unplugged myself
from social media, forums etc.  At the time, wilmott.com was going down a somewhat antagonistic path
and I desperately needed a break from all that. If I don't use this time at home productively I will be absolutely furious 
with myself; such opportunities don't come around that often.

Best of health (phys and mental) to all! 
Bis spater....

Who has new aches, pains, broken limbs, skin lesions, and smelly discharges that they aren't taking to the doctor for fear of catching something worse?

I think I stopped digesting food other than coffee, quinoa and raw veggies.
