Today, here in most parts of the England the big lockdown has been lifted, so, shops and pubs can reopen subject to social distancing, to quote an old English bulldog " Never before in the field of human conflict has the song "Roll out the barrel" been more popular!

On a serious note regarding the lifting of lock down here in England...

I had to cover 400 miles by car today, the roads were TERRIBLE. Driving standards are awful, folk changing lane without checking, no indicators, last minute decision making, etc,etc. I saw FOUR accidents with the police in attendance. People have gotten too used to empty roads.

Take extra care if riding motorcycles in the next few weeks folks....

My azz was dragging the day after the 2nd dose and my shoulder was sore, but no really bad sides. Day after that, I could still feel it, but not much. The pressure's off.

Tomorrow afternoon for injection number two. Sick as a dog last time hope this time is less drama.
Will get out for a ride this afternoon.
Driving wise it is about normal as the incomers are back and life and limb are always at risk.

In response to my post about second jab:
I hadmuch less of a reaction than first time. The worst was the guy with the needle I have heard that
they are now using broader needles. Somewhat like a ten penny nail. Other than that
very tired for two days. My old lady was laid much lower than I was dragging ass for three
days.
So I am now impervious to all things medical and political. If I see another mask I might as
well put it to good use and rob a bank.
Why I have to be under lockdown of one sort or another whilst people arrive here from
off shore is just mind boggling. The political leadership on this mess will make interesting
reading in 20 years. Oh wait, I won't be here to read it....

I've read that severe side effects upon receiving dose #1 could indicate a prior undocumented Covid infection. Most folks get at least a little ill after the 2nd shot, due to the body's reaction from assimilating the 1st shot.

Those of us who have been vaccinated can still get and spread Covid to others, but are very, very unlikely to personally suffer effects worse than a common cold. This is the logic behind restrictions that one might think should be ceased post-vaccination.

Isn't it interesting to see that India are giving Army/Police escort to oxygen tankers, they are also sending them on flatbeds by rail.
With such a densely populated country in some areas there was bound to be a complete pandemic. It's not agood place to live right now.
LHA stopped extra flights from India last week because of the outbreak .now the rest of the world have decided to help the Indian government and hospitals as they have been unable to cope.

52 people who boarded a flight from India to Hong Kong tested positive for Coronavirus despite all producing a negative test.
WTF is going on?
