If push comes to shove and it is enforced, I'll put a bag over my head, nobody will notice the difference, especially if it's creased  ::) ;D ;D

Ah Carol, you've brought a bit of a laugh to a very serious subject.  ;D  And I'm sure it's not true!

Yes, pharmaT - I might well agree.  But it's NOT the fault of the operatives, is it?

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

I made masks, but if you wear specs it's a nightmare, they steam up.  I have bought some of the cheaper paper masks but have yet to road test them.  Our visits to shops are few and far between, if we are out walking we don't bother. We are finding that our neighbours and fellow villagers are actually being as careful as we are.  Possibly because a local care home has had several deaths from the virus.

If you do use an old bra make sure you use the left cup  ;D

If I used one of my old bras I would have to use both cups to get sufficient coverage  ::) ;D ;D
