    A lady I know in the US posted this on Facebook. A swipe at the Orange Knobhead as a feeling grows that he's more worried about the dollar cost of the present situation than the human cost.

    Personally, I'm quite worried about what'll be left to my children when the dust settles. My son left uni in 2008, the year of the credit crunch, so 7+ years of austerity. Then Brexit, so 10 years of finding our way in the world. Then Coronavirus and every other person getting paid 80% of their salary for sitting at home doing nothing. Us boomers have had it easy by comparison.

    ETA - Ooops .... slap on the wrist from Greta - there's also global climate change to worry about.

    For a long time after my 3 years at Leith Nautical College I tried to tell people that staggering down Leith Walk from Edinburgh on a Friday night after one or two beers in the pubs on Rose Street, I saw enormous dinosaurs on a regular basis. (They were especially notable around the Deep Sea Chipshop.)

    And here's proof that it took a bloody pandemic to prove I was right. :heyhey:

    With only "one or two" you must have been very selective about the pubs you went in, or is that something of an underestimate?

    Sometimes you only need one beer.

    You have to understand something about Rose Street, (it runs pretty much parallel with Princess Street in Edinburgh.) At that time, it was notorious for the number of pubs along its length. I visited it a couple of years back and now it's all Bistro's and sit outside cafes, I'm not knocking that ... but in the 60's it had a different character.

    The challenge was to have half a pint in each pub along Rose Street, then stagger home. (There are reasons for the 'half a pint' limit, consult 'Boyle's' Law' for guidance.)

    There were adventurous types who opted for a full pint in each pub ... but sadly, they're somewhere up on the slopes of Everest with Mallory.

    There were still quite a few pubs there in the 1980s.

    It was 'Students Row' on the weekend when I was there (The Dummies Guide to Self Destruction.) :urgh: I sometimes dream of that long walk back down Leith Walk with a 'Haggis Supper' from the 'Deep Sea.'
