Hello guyz :hi:
i like all fruits except exotic ones (guava , passion fruit ..) favourite : apricots , blueberry , lemon.
At work but working at home now (trying to observe the same timetable than when i'm at the office in Le Mans ^^ ), so teleworking with skype and tel conferences for meetings
(it was strange the first day to work without younger fellow workers around making noise :D ) making a few breaks a day in the garden , the chance to live in the countryside. :)
Next week on vacations , probably will continue to build some unfinished map.

I discovered a Greek free lending e-book library with many books that I wanted to read, so there is much reading now :)
I make the most of our Amazon Prime Video. I didn't watch much before so this is the first time I use this service. They have some actually good stuff.
Some walking but much less that I used to do due to restrictions and more gardening.
And a lot of TRLE playing of course. :D

Same with me. I don't like fruits except watermelons, strawberries and few others. :-P
The best fruit is grapes when turned into a nice Sauvignon Blanc :D.

Schools are closed here and so are college's and uni's.
I am at home, don't have to go to work, but I do have to provide online lessons.
I don't even have to do an online lesson for each class that I have during the week, but I do have to do at least one per class per week.
That's quite a bit of work for some odd reason. :|

And ofcourse I'll have to keep up with whatever the government is deciding regarding schools and regulations regarding exams and such.
We had a meeting with collegues today and I'll have another meeting with other collegues tomorrow.

And studying is still going...
So even though I'm at home, it is no vacation. :lol:

Since I don't walk around as much as when I go to work, I do go for walks more often.
Made a model house these past few months, but now that it is done, I have more time to work on my levels again. :D


And on the subjects of fruits: I like 'em all. :2thumbsup:
Nothing is in contradiction with nature,
only in contradiction with what we know of it.

So do I, but unfortunately the tannins in red wine give me migraines, so I can’t drink it and for the same reason I can’t drink tea either. So it’s Chamomile tea or decaf coffee only for me.

Really? But white wine is more acidic and worse for my digestion.

It’s Hay Fever season and today it’s a high reading, so I’m spending time sneezing, wiping my runny eyes, blowing my runny nose and coughing. Went shopping earlier to Tesco’s and it was really hard not to cough but didn’t want to as might scare people into thinking I had Coronavirus.

Take care Peter, sneezing here as well although not so severe as you :wink:
For the rest... trying to ignore the pounding from te (re)building they do next door, which is hard though.
Oops, I did it again... Image

I work from home. I wake up about 2 hours later than I was used to. I have more pauses then usually, so I work longer... I don't know if that is good or bad. But because of pauses, I literary work all day from 10am till 10pm. :S right now I have a pause. :P

Thank you. Hay Fever is really annoying.

Since my workplace shut down, I’ve actually been getting up the same time or earlier for some reason. Was up today at 5.30am. I think it’s because I am not so tired now that I’m not at work.

I'm retired so not a lot has changed. On my birthday my neighbors made me a Reeses Pieces chocolate cake with peanut butter butter cream frosting. It was so good :-P
I played Rise of the Tomb Raider and found out from Michael P that I can play levels on my new laptop!! I am overjoyed. Missed all you guys these years! Glad to be back! :2thumbsup:

@ Teone: no spoilers, cross my heart and hope to die. All I can say is season 4, at least after the first two episodes, doesn't leave you room for breathing. Do watch the documentary - if you haven't - after you finish season 4. Only after you finish.
I finished to watch Season 4 and my opinion is still the same: the REAL Money Heist is Season 1-2, the original spanish production. What follows from Season 3 is a (good, anyway) commercial product made by Netflix.

Furthermore I think is quite obvious what will happen at the beginning of Season 5 :D

Technically it's not a spoiler because I don't know but I bet that...

Well... About the spoilers... That's also my opinion. Then it will depend on how mean the creature is. But we'll probably only know in 2 years or more.

I disagree that seasons 3 and 4 are just a commercial Netflix production.

Have you watched the documentary? If not, do. See how they filmed the whole thing, namely getting the gold bars from the sunken safe.

We've been watching Stranger Things now. Pretty cool. Very well crafted.
