    Day 9 of the quarantine: My wife called out from the other room and asked if I ever get a stabbing pain in my chest like someone has a voodoo doll of me and is stabbing it. I replied, "No." She responded, "How about now?"

    I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store. They open at 8:00 with one hour designated for seniors only. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane. He returned and tried to cut in again but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the 3rd time he said, "If you don't let me unlock the door, you'll never get in there."

    Sorry, I'm self-isolating and can't go on your guilt trip. After I'm out of isolation, I'm pretty sure I can find another reason not to. Maybe nature is telling us not to eat bats and snakes and pangolins and to not lie to other nations about infectious diseases.

    You could well be right, John . Been on lockdown myself for 17 days. Beginning to go a bit stir crazy but at least the weather should allow for sitting in the garden today (Sun).

    Eastern Express(Ex-Frog) Bristol 175 Britannia C.2, RAF Lyneham, 1960. In 1960, the year I was born, my late Dad built the Frog boxing of this kit, He made a really good job of it and the photo shows me in his arms when I was about 2 weeks old. Then when I was about 3 he gave me the model, (once it had been drummed into me that I HAD to look after my toys.) As a 3 year old it seemed enormous! It became my first ever model and the progenitor of what became a lifelong hobby. Scroll forward to now and a year or so ago I came across this boxing of the same kit. I couldn't get the BOAC markings for it but Frog had in fact released the RAF Support Command version at the same time. I just finished building the kit after a couple of weeks work. (It's still bloody enormous!LOL) I've built the model as a tribute to my Dad and the hobby he started me off on. Rest in peace Dad. Thanks for viewing

    Found this interesting video which blows my theory out of the window. The main rotor is not powered as the video explains.

    I bet that was a beast to handle in real life. At least it looks to be. Pretty much a combination of helicopter and fixed wing. I guess it used the balance of the main engines to counter the effects of torque from the main rotor. Whats it like to fly in the simulator?

    Thanks Arnold. I only keep a few out at a time. The rest are in storage boxes. Ideally I need a complete museum to display them all, there's over 2000 of them!

    I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors.I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.
