    Selfishness has a lot to do with it - I know that elderly people think that young people "don't know they're born" when it comes to what they didn't have to put up with before they were born. We have gone full circle to this time six months ago and that more or less means back to square one.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I'm very lucky to be in Canada I think, and in a place with 0 to 1 new cases most days. We had a little blip around August there where people started dropping the masks and rules and then we've tightened up again. Friends in England seem to be in real despair. My parents are both in their late 70s and we are still being pretty fastidious about wiping surfaces touched at the back door area used the most. The border to the U.S. remains closed by land and sea but still they have people coming in via air, but told to quarantine for two weeks. It's the schools here opening up that will be driving the next wave, and I'm not sure what the rush for it is, but we are often having staggered attendances, not all kids at the same time, and some still done virtually. U.S. is bad, coming apart at the seams in many ways, I wonder when I'll ever be able to spend time down there again. The smoke from their wild fires caught us for a bout a week and it was fairly thick, they even suspended mail delivery for that week, but back to normal skies and breathable air again, whew!

    Well, carry on all, because what else is there to do...
