    Very well could be the case, has happened throughout history. The world can only maintain so many people.

    Nothing quite brighter than the orange hue on a USA president’s face following an India visit.

    As Eric Idle's song, so beautifully, put it (in part):
    "Some things in life are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best

    And always look on the bright side of life
    Always look on the light side of life..."

    Can we leave it aside just over the week-end?

    Do you think the coronavirus will stop just for the week-end?

    Why do so many people think they are immune to getting it is beyond me.

    Rusty, we do what we can to protect ourselves, and then perhaps we can think of other things. Worrying about it doesn't help.

    Who is worrying about it. It should be a concern for everyone and no one in their right mind would be traveling to another country right now, it is now in 85 different countries. When my time is up it is up nothing to worry about, I'm just not going to go out of my way to look for a way that I could end it earlier, no cruises, no trips to other countries. If I get it I am getting it right here! 😉

    We don't have to travel perhaps but we have to meet people. I live in a city, and in a moment I will take the bus and then switch to another bus, to go to another part of Gothenburg - it takes an hour. I will be surrounded by people. No use worrying.

    I didn't say "WORRY" you keep using that word. Everyone however should be concerned. They are saying the dangerous ages of passing from it are over 70 and young children. That could change as time goes on. Agreed don't worry about it, but you do have reason to be concerned. You are not immune to it that I know about.
