Yes, I see what you mean Pat - quite unnerving! I'm glad I tried again - got an error trying to open by touching the video but could then see the web address n get in that way. Thanks Ray! I was going to say 'Next year' - do you think it might possibly be this year?

Wish I knew Jean. As it took China 3 months to come through the worst of this virus with all their draconian methods, it's likely we in the west will need a 3 month lockdown at least and possibly more. There is talk of the death rate dropping but thats hardly a reason to be complacent. I can't see any of us getting back to 'normal' before July personally.

I know your question was aimed at Ray, but my attitude is that I am not expecting to use the MH this year. However, if restrictions are lifted earlier at least with a MH one can load it up and leave quite soon, without the need for booking anything and it does not need hotels and restaurants to be open, only shops.

I've been watching Rick Stein's latest series "Secret France" - some lovely shots of France, and of course towns & villages - and food! On BBC catch up

I doubt anyone has been here. This is where I am forced to self isolate in a house just past the cemetery. I think the picture was taken at the weekend.



I thought the picture would zoom but now think it won't - if anyone wants to drop in to our little French village try this link - https://www.pastcaring.com/misc/our-village-drone.JPG

If that is St Auvent near Limoges then I think we did consider stopping there on the way back from the Dordogne once but for whatever reason we went somewhere else. I notice there is a lake so I was probably looking for somewhere to get out on the Kayak / Dinghy.

Yes that's the one. L'ÉTANG DE LA POUGE is the name of the lac which gives us the name of our road. I have never seen any boats on it and understand it is a nature reserve for fishing and twitching. So that might be why you gave it a miss
