Re: Late night music.

Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder might not be very well-known, which is a pity. The fifth song, "Träume" is a bit of a favourite of mine, but finding a decent Youtube clip has been a significant challenge. Cheryl Studer here is in fine voice. Only a painting to look at, so an opportunity to appr...

Re: Travel Insurance

No plans for a foreign holiday this year - yet, though apparently bookings have rocketed since Johnson's comments yesterday. The EHIC is gradually being replaced by the GHIC - Global Health Insurance Card - even though it's not global. As my EHIC expires tomorrow, I've applied, anyway. https://www.n...

Hancock acted unlawfully by failing to publish Covid contracts.

The health secretary, Matt Hancock, acted unlawfully by failing to publish multibillion-pound Covid-19 government contracts within the 30-day period required by law, a high court judge has ruled. The judge, Mr Justice Chamberlain, ruled the failure to do so breached the “vital public function” of t...

Coulrophobia?

Sequenza V is a composition for solo trombone by Luciano Berio. Written in 1966. Perhaps not so harmless?

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Recently published on Sky News. UK scientists are developing a COVID vaccine with an in-built insurance against mutations in the virus. The jab, being developed at the University of Nottingham, should still be effective even if a new variant evolves that knocks out other vaccines. The prototype has ...

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Three full days now since I had the jab and, luckily, I've had no side effects, not even a sore arm. I know of people who've suffered from a couple of days of exhaustion, various pains, headaches and slight fever. We're all different, I suppose.

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

AstraZeneca vaccine applied this afternoon. Can barely identify the point of application, atm, but read the leaftet given, so prepared for a delayed reaction. These days, I'm quite experienced with relaxation exercises.

Re: Some recent crime series

Watched the first episode of "The Drowning" tonight. A bit slow to start, but it improved. Will stick with it and watch second tomorrow - after Corrie, obviously. :thumb

Re: Late night music.

Something brought "Die Tote Stadt" back into my mind, and the beautiful “Marietta’s Lied”. There seem to be far more recordings on Youtube than there were when I posted a few years ago. Here,a 60-year old Renée Fleming demonstrates she can still deliver, and at a leisurely pace, too. Pity ...

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

Text invitation arrived today from GP offering local appointments Monday Feb 8th. So I'm booked in 2.10pm. Don't know which one, but surgery site says Pfizer always used first because of more demanding storage conditions. I never had major reactions to flu jabs, so interesting to see if any with thi...

Re: Covid Vaccine issues

My OH should get it in the next few weeks - bit of a wait for me. Got my letter from NHS this morning, inviting me to a vaccine appointment, but the three nearest centres were 14-20 mile round trips - not a big issue, but I thought we were supposed to stay at home. Letter added I can wait until GP ...

"Why People Hear the Dead."

I stumbled across a recent article from Steven Novella. He links those claiming to be clairvoyant, clairaudient or clairsentient to “Fantasy Prone Personality”. When a person claims to hear, see, or feel something through ESP, then, what is happening? Likely, many different things. In some cases the...
