Re: Flu-Jabs @ Sydenham Green now Covid test compatible

We (both over 65s) got ours this morning from Wells Park Practice. Invited by text message to walk-in session, dedicated to people the initial letter of whose surname fell into a certain range. Waited for less than 5 minutes.

Re: Concerning Chris Beach

i don't know why Chris and Stuart hate each other so much (apart from the fact that they own rival websites, which ought not really to be a reason) and don't want to. But if they want a scrap, I wish they'd go and have it behind the bike sheds or somewhere. I, and I suspect others, really don't want...

Re: Masks

I was on a bus today, and was surprised to hear that the recorded message told us not to stand, to sit next to the window and to maintain social distancing, but didn't mention wearing masks. It was a 122, by the way. We'd been to Crystal Palace to see 'Tenet'. More or less incomprehensible, even, I ...

Re: New leisure contract for Lewisham?

All right for the young and well-toned like Stuart, but swimming is the only feasible serious exercise available to us timid and arthritic old people.. So we need the pools open soon please, otherwise we shall all have strokes and heart attacks on the NHS and cost you youngsters big money. I'm sure ...

Thanks, Stuart. I misread your earlier post as implying that the sale had actually happened. (Thought you were being ironical!)

Not far out, maestro, but I strongly deny having been 'on the sauce' (what a vulgar expression). Just a bit manic. I must remember to take my tablets.

Re: Masks

I suspect willingness to wear a mask is related to age, gender, class and level of education (a bit like views on Brexit), rather than to ethnicity.

Re: Sydenham has highest Covid deaths in Lewisham!

I haven't really researched this, but I believe that the large Castlebar home on Sydenham Hill is in Sydenham ward, that there is another home by Cobb's Corner and yet another towards the bottom end of Sydenham Road, just past Kwikfit on the left as you go down the hill. On the other hand I can't im...

It will be interesting to see whether Chris's decision means that there will now be more traffic on this forum. Or has the iron now entered too deep into everybody's soul for there to be any reconciliation between the Chrisites and the Stuartites? Don't know, but the mush of moral equivalence is qu...
