Reality check for two two letter acronyms with an ambition to describe our lives: EU and AI. Off self-isolating. They'll come back yapping about making the world a better place when the crisis subsides.

Top Tip: Want to make a fortune when normality resumes? Spend the next few months studying a correspondence course for psychotherapists.

Is there food at the shops now?

There is a kind of neutral/equilibrium achieved when one can stand to lose a few pounds/kg and there isn't much food around.

But that doesn't last for long!

(BTW - this is not directed *at* Paul - it's just a general observation.)

Personally, I have not been to the grocery store for over two weeks and at the moment, I don't plan to go for at least 3 more weeks, maybe 4.

I will dine on rice and whole wheat pasta and sip Almond Milk from a crystal goblet. It will be fine.

As was his 2001 prediction.

The only man who will be remembered is Charlie Coburn
