I am working my ass off from home I know I should be grateful for that so I am. I now have a long term long distance relationship away from the office. So I am looking for the cheapest most beautiful house I can buy in the Midwest to live work and garden in not Illinois if I can possibly help it.
all roads lead to Christ.

Dutch are going for half a lock-down starting tomorrow. Next 4 weeks at least. Sucks for those affected.

Tunisian President is considering a short full nationwide 24/7 lockdown, either Thursday-Sunday this week (which covers an upcoming bank holiday) or all of next week. Ouch.

I am writing the Bradt Travel Guide to Tunisia (1st Edition) as well as remotely managing a few of my Lusophone Africa consultancies...

Thanks! I'm smashing out as many as possible, but they take a fair amount of time and distract from the important business of actually writing the book! Should have a fun video of exploring some abandoned tanks in a DP for you soon...

lockdown

Postby el3so » Fri Oct 16, 2020 9:51 pm

Starting monday 19/10/20 nation-wide curfew between 00h00 and 05h00, all pubs and restaurants closed and max of 1 visitor within 1.5 meters, sales of alcohiolic beverages outlawed after 20h00, all measures copied from the neighbouring countries (FR&NL) because we do not believe in original ideas and in the current climate no-one is willing to risk their political neck.

Dumb asses still will not learn, this sh!t is going to last 'till next fall.
