The PSG - Bayern match last night was terrific. Pity one of these two teams had to go out. They can control the ball and pass the ball accurately at high speed. Letís face it,  English teams are somewhat pedestrian in comparison with the exception of Man C.

Our Brexit Museum would benefit by the presence of George Osborne. The former chancellor leading up to Brexit said that a vote to leave the EU would result in immediate economic catastrophe for Britain. Relatively strong growth directly after the referendum made his forecast a subject of ridicule. This Remainer could join the Brexit Museum so that as we pass by his dummy, we can produce a smile.

Yes George certainly deserves a place in the Brexit Museum. Remember he said that households would be £4,300 worse off after Brexit. Records from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show in the five years since he said that, real disposable income per head has risen to £5,354 at the end of 2020.

Vaccination does seem to be the only way out but this has to be done everywhere in the world if people are still, to eventually travel safely.  The UK has already seen an "easing" of lockdown but the folks still not socially distancing, appear to be those who should (younger, unvaccinated age groups).  If the BBC news is to be believed, folks were out "on the town", drinking heavily and "mixing" far too closely for my liking.  I have not been out (apart from shopping) and still don't consider it safe to do so.  Watching people sitting drinking in tents, outside pubs, does not look safe to me.  You have to rely 100% on others in their hygiene and ability to prepare and deliver your Covid free food and drink in clean containers, in a Covid free environment.  One slip and you are infected.  I do not have OCD or any other similar problem, I am merely stating facts.  Stay safe folks, however you can achieve that.  I have lost people to this awful virus.  It is real!

International media in Corfu following death of Prince Philip

CORFU. The international media are in Corfu to photograph and film Mon Repos Palace and the Church of St. George at the Old Fortress as well as collect and broadcast historical material.

International media, mainly British, and news agencies such as Reuters and Associated Press have been showing an interest in Corfu over the last three days due to the death of Prince Philip. Central Corfu Municipality has been assisting the media crews and also providing information regarding the birth and christening of the Prince, whilst Mayor Meropi Ydraiou gave them a tour of Mon Repos.

Crews from British media such as the BBC and the Daily Mail have come to Corfu along with the news agencies Reuters, based in London, and the Associated Press, the main news agency in the USA, and Deutsche Welle to photograph and film Mon Repos Palace and the Church of St. George at the Old Fortress as well as collect and broadcast historical material. They also spoke to Britons residing in Corfu who were visiting Mon Repos to leave flowers at the entrance.

International media has already been talking about Corfu following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, including the BBC, the Sun, the Daily Mail, the Independent, Guardian, Daily Telegraph, National Herald, Evening Standard, Daily Mirror, ITV, British Heritage Travel, New York Times, NBC, CNN, ABC News, online news sites such as metro.uk, Inews, 24news.com, greekcitytimes, greekreporter.com and the Vatican News. All of them have been including Corfu as the Prince's birthplace and place of christening.

Central Corfu & Diapontia Islands Mayor Meropi Ydraiou took journalists on a tour of Mon Repos and gave interviews, referring to the fact that the then Mayor of Corfu Alexandros Kokotos was one of his godparents and that the island has always had a close connection with Britain.

Ms. Ydraiou pointed out the excellent relations with the British community on the island and the fact that Corfu is a favourite destination for Britons as well as the heir to the throne Prince Charles. She took the opportunity to let the journalists know that there have been significant improvements to the tourist infrastructure recently and the quality of service to visitors.

In conclusion, she said that she had sent condolences to the British Ambassador for the death of Prince Philip.

I think it is very misleading. The vaccine has had an amazing effect that's for sure but I think many people who have had the vaccine, are already overconfident.

Let's get everyone who wants to be vaccinated done and then we will all feel a little less tense about it all.
