    Hi there how is everyone coping with isolation? 

    Hello Kimkeen 1981 today is the first day i have been calm in 2wks. i tried to make a video diary to share with friends and family but i didn't know how much of my phone memory. i will find a better memory card and do a decent vlog for posterity because there will be a different word after this. and the uncensored records of normal folks will be regarded as true historical artefacts of what we are going through. pity i am not more technically minded but it keeps me occupied.
    i also moderate a few you tube channels that are doing live discussions. they keep me on my toes and my attention off my anxieties.

    Lock down has been the best thing for me for years. It has forced me to slow down and do no work.
    Normally even at 71 my life is hectic with work.
    Long may it be for 3 months.

    I can definitely relate to this @skullcap. I normally am on the go all the time, taking time to catch up on odd jobs has been nice.

    How is everyone?
