Today I could hear You Picked a Fine Time to Leave me Lucille.  ::)  I think I might have to treat the perpetrator to some Iron Maiden.  ;D

Iron Maiden, that'll teach 'em but only at the highest volume you have. Seen them live three times - great gigs.

  How about some opera? That would probably send them inside! (Nothing against opera, but it might upset pop music fans.)
Well thatís a good idea.., how about a bit of Wagner at full volume?

But you don't have to drive to go outside.  You may have to drive to go somewhere more intersting, more beautiful etc but you can walk along the street. 

The biggest issue with driving elsewhere to go walking is that increases the radius of movement of people.  A virus cannot move itself, it is moved by people.  Therefore going to a completely different area for your walk or going shopping several miles away (when there are several other supermarkets in between not when it's miles to the nearest one) increases the potential for spread and can seed new clusters in new areas. 

You might I cannot, I live at the top of a hill, if I walk in either direction I have to go downhill, I have a medical problem, we have a 16 year old disabled granddaughter who is living with us and my wife has asthma now you tell me how the three of us can go out for exercise by walking along the street.-

A) the pavement is not wide enough to walk 3 abreast and my granddaughter requires both myself and my wife either side to allow her to walk.

B) even at 6 a.m. there are pedestrians walking up and down the street.

C) as I stated we live at the top of a hill and I cannot afford to strain myself at this time trying to push her back up the hill

Now tell me I drive to a remote deserted old railway track bed not to exercise but drive to go somewhere more interesting, more beautiful etc!

Cheers
Guy

Guy, there are always extenuating circumstances and people will empathise with that. 

However, when you have two perfectly healthy young women, who do not live together but do Ďtrainí together who are perfectly capable of walking/running from their home but choose to drive to a location in order to Ďtrainí ie run and you see them every day when they huff and puff past you you can see how it becomes rather annoying. Thatís not counting the same cars with dog letter outers, we donít call them walkers, because all they do is let the dog out to foul and then go home again, you can time your watch by most of them, then that makes you angry 😡
Iím sorry to say there are more people like them than there are like you and your wife and I appreciate your dilemma.

I am sorry Suey but we have had to put up with such distaste that prompted me to post for years but has got worse lately. People have stopped us in parks saying we are cruel forcing her to walk and that she should be allowed to sit in her wheelchair. It got so bad a few years ago I got her consultant to write and sign a note giving her daily exercise requirements as she needs daily  physical activity/exercise as primary prevention against 35 chronic conditions later in life.

In a similar way you do not know what hidden disabilities either or both of those young ladies you describe have not every disability is visible, take epilepsy a person can be fit and healthy looking one minute and totally helpless and near death's door the next, it is such lack of understanding that makes life so difficult for them not the illness itself.

Please don't judge people when you do not the full circumstances involved, let's all live and let live

Cheers

2 young men jailed on Isle of Man for offences related to Covid-19.

One person was absent from a residence and also failed to follow medical instructions, officers say - he's been sentenced to six weeks in jail.

Another male had already been warned but was found drinking and socialising on a beach - he's been given four weeks.

Quite right too if this is the only way to make people realise how dangerous their actions are.

Seems to have been quite quiet here in UK over Easter thankfully.

Take care,

It`s also people driving long distances for no essential reason.

Why would someone drive a 300mile round trip from Scotland to N.Wales just to pick up a "bargain" BMW.

Why would some one take their Porsche from Shropshire to N.Wales just for a spin.

Cars stopped near us from 3 different areas to go crabbing at Tenby.

The rules seemingly don`t apply to "them"

Don`t they know how this rotten thing is spread.

It is more they don't care, it couldn't possibly happen to them, they don't have symptoms right now, but lockdown is hard, it's boring blah blah blah.  Brings a whole new meaning to dying of boredom doesn't it?

I have thought for a long time that there are many who consider the law (including the laws of physics and nature) do not apply to them, that they can do what they want, when they want and no one else matters.
