The Stay Safe Board / Diary > Summary - Week ending 31st October

Just realised we're in another week, taking us to the end of October.

Despite the high number of Covid cases the Health Secretary thinks we'll have a normal Christmas. Let's hope he's right.

No-one seems to have started without me so here we go.... :)

I wrote off the whole weekend due to having terrible dizziness on Friday morning (staggering about and bouncing off the walls!) It gradually improved and today I had an appointment with the nurse practitioner for another reason so asked her about it. She said it's vertigo, not triggered by Covid. Hmmm. Hoping for a better week ahead.

The weeks seem to be flying by, we'll be into October before the end of the week. Weather here has been lovely but heavy rain this morning, much needed for the gardens. Anyone had their booster jab yet?

Heading towards the end of September, nights are drawing in again. This week the government announced changes to travel rules, the amber and green lists will be merged and there are changes to testing rules.

BBC News - Travel update: What are the new rules for going abroad?

This has led to an upturn in business for the travel industry.

Also we have been told that over 50s and younger vulnerable people will receive a Covid booster jab which will be the Pfizer vaccine. I'm happy to take anything that's offered.

Personally, I've been regaining strength and am able now to taste some foods, particularly spicy things. The flavour of some things comes and goes but at least I'm heading in the right direction. No glass of Chardonnay yet, am hoping it's going to be soon.  :) Have enjoyed my Pilates and art classes and life seems quite normal when I go there.

Hope to hear good news for everyone this week.

Almost halfway through September, where has the time gone? The Prime Minister is due to announce his winter Covid plans, apparently he is dead set against another lockdown. Will we be getting a booster jab or will it only be for the extremely vulnerable? All will be revealed!

The start of a new week, people seem to be getting out and about more and travelling further. Reports show a slight increase in the number of Covid infections in the UK but the vaccination programme is still progressing well with 16 and 17 year olds now being vaccinated.
Not much new for me personally, I still haven't regained my sense of taste and smell more than five weeks later although I have had slight fleeting smells and a little taste. Unfortunately they haven't lasted but I am hoping that my body is working on it.

Hope it's a good week coming up and that there is better news for Rootschatters in  NZ and Oz and in Canada.

Looking forward to hearing news from everyone from Monday 16th August. Life seems to be getting busier for a lot of people, hope there are more enjoyable events to report this week.

Another week gone,  government figures show that after the July peak in Covid infections in the UK and a subsequent fall they have now levelled off. More than 47 million people in the UK have had their first dose of the vaccine and 16 and 17 year olds are being invited to be vaccinated.

I look forward to hearing news from Rootschatters around the world for the coming week from Monday the 9th. Hope it's good news.  :)

Technical Help / Firefox doesn't display favourites
« on: Monday 02 August 21 18:04 BST (UK)  »
I've recently found that my Firefox browser on my laptop no longer displays my most visited bookmarks, they used to be along the top of the screen under the website address. I have the bookmarks marked as Always Show, although I have tried to unticked that option to see if it has any effect but it doesn't untick or make any difference! I can get my bookmarks toolbar to appear as a sidebar.
Not only that, clicking on the hamburger at the top right doesn't do anything at all and the cross to close down the browser isn't visible until I hover over it and even then it only shows as a red square. The option to restore down the screen is similar, only shows as a grey square when I hover over it.
I'm attaching a screenshot of how the top of the screen was when I opened the browser, nothing has changed now except that I have a couple of tabs open.

Can anyone please help? I'm pulling my hair out with this!
