  4. Please may I have seven more follows on my (new) YouTube page so I can finally get past 100 subscribers?

    @DanVeallBassist

    This is my own page, which is rather empty as all of my gear reviews are hosted on the Guitar Interactive Magazine website and YouTube channel @GuitarInteractiveMag

    So, mine is a bit empty. I'm starting from the ground up and need your help :)❤️

  13. Currently waiting for Tesco to open (as they’re no longer 24/7 🙄). Arrived early to avoid most of the mouth breathers. Let’s see how this goes. I just wanna do a normal shop FFS!

      “A VULNERABLE couple who are self-isolating to protect themselves from coronavirus ordered £50 worth of vital supplies for home delivery – but were shocked when just five items arrived.

      Finn, 70, and Tina Teigen, 66, from Lewisham in South London, have been following the government advice to stay at home because of the coronavirus outbreak that has left 72 Brits dead.

       

      The elderly couple, who have underlying health conditions, placed a home food order with Co-op to help them through the quarantine period but were left disappointed when only five items were delivered.

      The measly delivery contained carrots, gravy granules, squash, margarine and fish sticks – even though they had paid more than £50.

      Finn said: “We are old age pensioners. We were depending on the delivery. It’s going to be carrots and gravy for the next three days.

      “It’s going to be carrots and gravy for the next three days.

      “Our kids live about 50 miles away – hopefully one of them is going to come up. I’m one of those people who see the funny side of everything.

      “But, underlying it all, I do worry about our food. We haven’t been refunded yet. At least my pension went in today.”

      The total sum of the goods that actually arrived was around £7.

      Co-op has been contacted for comment.”

      We were going to have a Paella tonight, but no fish pie mix or prawns, so that was that (my wife doesn’t eat meat).

      Next door (who pay a monthly fee for home delivery) can’t even get a slot this month, so click and collect customers don’t have a chance. Your area may be different. I hope.

      Dave is not living in the real world.

      For starters, there are NO click & collect available until sometime in April.

      You could spot them a mile off this morning. Nudging their trolleys closer to the doors as opening time approached. Standing there with their significant other who looked a bit confused as to where they were and what they were supposed to be doing. He/she having been dragged along as an extra pair of hands to carry more large packs of loo roll. Looks in their eyes as if to say 'had I known what I was letting myself in for, I wouldn't have asked to 'work from home'. Do you seriously buy 8 x 4 pints of milk and 5 x loaves of bread every time you go shopping? No. Thought not.

      Slightly?

      Three grocery items? You mean three of any one thing surely?

      I do feel a bit for my lad. He pretty much lives on pasta and there hasn't been any dried pasta on the shelves for quite a while now. 

      We usually have two 5kg bags in the house. One partially empty and the other ready to go next.

      On speaking to the staff, it appears they do restock and it goes instantly. I would love to know when.

      Really @prowla. Thanks for that. Really much appreciated after the tortuous couple of hours I’ve had this morning. Queuing up with people who have no f***ing idea where the bread or the eggs are even.

      So when is the best time to stand a fair chance of buying what you would normally buy? When everybody is awake? Not a chance in hell of getting a home delivery or a click & collect even.

      I wasn’t one of the many pushing trolleys around with piles of loo roll you know. The worst part was the check out. I had about 80% fresh stuff and a bit of frozen that had almost defrosted by the time I reached the car.

  19. I like these two tracks, but seem to be underrated or forgotten?

  20. Little Wonder, Hallo Spaceboy & Station to Station all in the set for this year. Really looking forward to playing S2S again - such a great song. I think we did Little wonder a couple of times a few years ago, but Hallo Spaceboy is new. Gonna be fun.

      Yes, about 4 hours, so says my iPad 😀.

      Don’t think I can get a flight to Edinburgh at the moment, let alone Milwaukee. A friend of mine who is air crew has effectively been made redundant overnight. The flights there are/were that had any slots for crew were all being fought over by everyone. Crazy times.

      52 if you count both versions of The Man Who Sold The World.

      It still feels like there’s a load of gaps though.

      Scary Monsters, Diamond Dogs, Aladdin Sane, Be My Wife, Panic in Detroit, 1984, Watch That Man....the list goes on and on. 

      No, we’re not going to do The Laughing Gnome.

      Yes, we will finally get around to doing our version of Magic Dance one day 😀
