Title: UK new tenerife
Post by: pilgrim on June 25, 2020
32% degrees in the south today. Beaches full, roads crazy. People on holiday having been furloughed, still      get paid (by goverment) just not allowed to do any work? Even if they are asked to, by their employer?
I find it embarrasing! that and spelling! Crazy!!! Younger now don't give a f   u   c  k, I am not getting the virus as to young they say! what is the point if these people don't behave and observe!
Have just reread this and seems perfect!  Darling bring another Dorada in!

The young around where I live have never observed social distancing. The local pub is closed but they still sit at the canal side tables and party with their own booze. Spoke to the landlady yesterday and she was fed up of clearing up after them.

Another pub down the canal was serving takeaway drinks from an outside bar yesterday. Their outside tables are stacked on top of each other to stop people using them so they just line the banks of the canal and drink there.

Mind you I don't blame them. Covid is no significant risk to them and they should never have locked down the under 45s. In fact they should just have advised the old and frail to isolate and let the young and the brave get on with it. That way the economy would have survived and the death toll stayed virtually the same.

Fully agree with all the above! plus, kids cannot go back to school, but they are ok to run around supermarkets and they will be in the pubs as well next week! what is worrying, when people start to fly to holidays, you will be sharing the airport and plane with the knuckledraggers who crowded the beaches with no consideration for anyone else, i think a second wave will be on its way soon :(

It isn't my personal opinion. It is fact revealed by the mortality figures published by the ONS and frequently shown on the BBC website.

And the government have said when a vaccine is available they will offer it to the over 50s and the vulnerable.

So when people ask why the young ignore the rules, that is why. It is perfectly rational from their point of view.

It's selfish of young people to risk passing it on to their nans and grandads.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife

but it is your personal opinion Nophead, and that's all we ever get from you, time after time after time.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 26, 2020
But their nans and granddads are supposed to keep away from them and probably do because every day we see illegal raves, BLM demonstrations, etc, but the infections and deaths still go down. Why are there no big upsurges? Probably because they are mainly young and don't get seriously ill and don't mix with the old.

It is selfish for the old and retired to expect the young working people to lose their jobs, holidays and social life to extend the lives of the old.

Everybody should manage their own risk.  Yes if you get in a plane full of 200 random people and Covid has a prevalence of 1 in 2000 in the population there is 10% chance somebody on the plane will have it. A smaller chance you will sit close enough to them to catch it. If you are unlucky enough to catch it there is a small chance it will kill you. There is also a very small chance the plane will crash and due to the extra radiation you get at height a small chance you will get cancer.

I personally would take the risk and fly but other people are free to make their own risk assessment. When the pubs open I will go for a pub lunch to help keep them in business. Probably more risk the beer will kill me than covid.

Post by: nophead on June 26, 2020
So fine for you lot to constantly express YOUR opinions of outrage and contempt for the younger generation and call them names but not fine for me to give my opinion of the situation based on scientific fact and logical reasoning as to the reason why they might do it and why it might not be a problem.

We bump into groups of young people every day when we take out walk for exercise and in the main they are courteous and polite and step aside to give us 2m clearance. So they are no danger to us and we live and let live.

And there is no point moaning about it as it is what it is. You have to decide if you want to risk flying with them or not.

From the PM himself:

"You may think you are not going to get it, that you're immortal and invincible and so on - and very likely that's true if you are young person. But the bug you carry can kill elderly people particularly. It is still dangerous; the virus is still out there."

I have aches & pains all over the place but I am glad I am a young 73 year old, my 8 year old granddaughter thinks I am funny & a little mad but seeing her & giving her a hug has been the best lockdown present yet.
This virus is a killer but you still have to live your life & try and enjoy it as much as you can.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: pilgrim on June 27, 2020
I agree!
With the nursery's being closed till a couple of weeks ago. Our daughter who is pregnant has been bringing our grandkids to us 3 days a week to help out. It was by the rules illegal, and did think that the police may turn up! because of all the noise we would make playing in the garden. We certainly have some great life long memories.
Our daughter is due to give berth at Kingston hospital in September, she has been told that unless the rules change she will have to give birth alone! Previously my wife and her hubby have been present at these difficult long labour births.
So if this rule remains we are at a loss of what to do.
I for sure do not want my daughter to be on her own!
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 27, 2020
As it should be, people managing their own risk and balancing it against quality of life and not telling others what to do and criticising them if they choose more risk.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: unhappy on June 27, 2020
"Choosing more risk", if you mean the Idiots that cram themselves onto a beach or who engage in raves that is unacceptable & this Government & the police MUST take action to stop them, these are mainly the young people that you seem to imply have a right to do so because they are less likely to catch the virus.

Going up where?

In the Canaries it has gone up because 3 boat loads of migrants from Africa imported 34 cases. In the UK it seems to be slowly going down.

Today I see 890 new cases and 100 new deaths, which are the lowest Saturday figures since before the peak. Where are you seeing it is increasing?
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: Georgie on June 27, 2020
Sorry I look at the government website
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 27, 2020
I look at the graphs plotted from the government data here: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/uk/

The graphs are always a day behind but the figures for the current day are shown as soon as they are released.

They say they get their data from here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public and that indeed says 890 cases and 100 deaths today. Pretty much each day is lower than the same day the week before, so far.

Is there a better government web site? I noticed when they used to do the daily briefings the graphs show the deaths on the day they happened instead of the day there were reported, which gets rid of the weekend distortion.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: pilgrim on June 27, 2020
Definitely there will 2nd spikes both hear and in Tenerife, and the authorities will have to have selective lock downs. I think this Virus could be with us for a long time, if not for ever!
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 27, 2020
One would think so as the lock down hasn't changed anything. But it is also looking like the lock down won't be accepted much longer. Unless they draft in the army I think the police will lose control, they more or less have done already.

On the plus side people in hospital are dying at a much lower rate. It has gone from 6% a day to 1% a day and they don't know why. Similar patterns in Italy.

Never used yahoo in my life. I read the BBC news and the UK governments stats and the Canarian Sanidad website, so none of my facts are BS unless you don't believe the official figures.

I thought I was having a civilised discussion with Georgie about where he saw that numbers are rising.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: pilgrim on June 27, 2020
I think this is a far more difficult time than some of the main stream press and commenters would have you believe. Met someone last week who hasn't seen their mother who is in a nursing home since March. Just wave through the glass from outside. This PANDEMIC affects some people more than others.
So maybe we should all respect each others views, as the affects hit us all differently.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: angiebabes on June 27, 2020
Pilgrim thatís such a thoughtful thing to say and I agree we should all consider individual effects on people in so many different ways.

We opted to stay in TENERIFE and are still here, now debating whether to return to UK in July, or be safer here for a while. Difficult decision when faced with sights in Bournemouth last few days.

Nophead - just try, please, just try!
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: Mary on June 28, 2020
Thanks Pilgrim we all need a bit more thoughtfulness during this difficult time,. Iíve been acutely aware that although a very fit mid seventy that if I caught the virus my daughter would move in to look after me if I was Poorly.
So I decided to stay at home, have everything delivered and cut my risks,not because I was afraid but would have been devastated if I passed it to family. I have really struggled with the negativity in the press and the comments On here dismissing older people as nothing more than a disposable statistic.
We all need to be kinder to each other, this virus has impacted on many lives and if you are lucky enough to still have your partner to share it with, spare a thought for people who donít have that luxury.

Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 28, 2020
If you don't need to go out to work, the chance of catching it depends on what you do, not what others do.

We have lived in the UK through the peak, where the prevalence in the population was more than 10 times what it is now, and the only time I think I could have had any chance of catching it was when an engineer came into our house to try to fix the broadband. I could have insisted on distancing but he was showing me readings on his equipment and I was interested.

Having depleted our food stash after about 2 months, we now do Tesco click and collect once a fortnight. You drive up and they open the boot and put it in in free plastic bags. Everything else I buy online and get delivered. We wash our hands after opening packages. So really no chance of catching it regardless of what the young do. We keep 2m away from them when outside.

None of our friends and relatives have caught it, most are retired, work from home or been made redundant by it. The exceptions are three teachers I know and a nephew and his partner that are NHS doctors. They get tested twice a week and haven't caught it but they are young and very fit (rock climbers).

Flying home is probably the biggest risk now that tourists are starting to come back and will start to fill the return flights.

Well you can express outrage and fear about people enjoying themselves on the south coast and people seem to like that here but as soon as I make a rational statement about how it might not affect people they get upset.

It doesn't matter how much outrage and condemnation you, the papers and the government express it doesn't change anything, the cat is out of the bag. On the other hand how you personally mange the risk makes all the difference. You pick your own balance between risk and quality of life.

Although Nicola Sturgeon thinks they are close to eliminating it in Scotland I think she is deluded. It will never go away completely and so can always flare up. Vaccines and treatments are the only hope but they are too far away for countries to remain in lockdown, not only because of the economy but also the young will not put up with it.

Post by: janey on June 28, 2020
i agree with nophead

people will not lockdown to such an extent again.

i agree the police should be given more control.

what were the council doing to protect bournemouth beach from mass crowding?  they had 3 months to put plans and controls numbers in place.

i agree that the young and healthy should have been left working.

i agree that the only people who should have locked down are the people at risk.

and, whoever told you that your daughter would have to give birth alone has given you incorrect information. a birthing partner is of course allowed in during labour.  not prior to labour, not for more than an hour after giving birth. but one partner can attend your daughter during her labour.

last rant - dont believe everything you hear and read via the media - they have cooked up a storm.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 28, 2020
The police have the legal power to break up gatherings but they don't have the man power when there are more than a few thousand and they don't seem to want to get into a mass brawl with the public like they did with the miners.

They don't have the power to enforce social 2m distancing though, or enter your house or garden to check you are.

Do you live in or near Bournemouth? Would you like your vegetable patch covered in urine and defacation? Would you welcome 7 miles of other peopleís waste on your doorstep? Would you mind having your car blocked in by strangers parking in your drive/grass/flower borders?

ARE YOU NUTS??

You claim to make RATIONAL statement about how it might not affect people. TRUST ME it has affected disastrously an awful lot of people and if you knew what you were talking about you couldnít fail to agree. Not just the virus risk, but filth, excrement and urine combined with discarded needles, happy gas canisters, filthy nappies etc.,etc.

Donít try to minimalise  suffering of other people when it hasnít affected you. Believe me, what you read or saw on tv bears no reality to what BOURNEMOUTH folk have suffered. Or Liverpool, Reading, Glasgow.

Try giving Boris a call, or better still Dominic, they sure could use your extensive expertise and maybe you could advise them that choosing a Saturday, rather than say a Tuesday, to open the pubs up, is inviting a repeat of what weíve suffered in the hot weather.
How you manage to find time to write so many, many posts whilst growing your own, brewing your own, studying your graphs, sorting your online shopping and no doubt correcting the inevitable mistakes your wife must make in your eyes is a miracle. Go recharge your computer battery and GIVE US A BREAK.

Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 28, 2020
No I would not like any of that, or condone it, people seem to have forgotten how to behave themselves. Seems to be an unintended side effect of lock down that some people's behaviour has got a lot worse. Not sure how the government can reverse that. Public information films about picking up litter like they used to show children!

We were told the government was advised by behavioural scientists, so they should have seen that coming.

They closed the tips, but people still have rubbish, so we now have a lot more fly tipping.
They closed the toilets, ...
They closed all the bars and clubs, so now we have illegal raves where people die.
They stopped people going on holidays, so they flock to the beaches at the first opportunity and they don't have the capacity for everybody turning up on the same day.

When they open anything again people flock to it, so I think you are right, July 4th will be a mess. I will certainly wait a while before going to the local.

I don't think it is unique to the UK. Some friends report similar problems in Belgium.

Post by: nophead on June 29, 2020
No wide of the mark. Savants don't lead normal lives, on the other hand I had a successful career as a computer programmer, R&D manager and embedded systems consultant designed a 3D printer and sold it all over the world, made enough money to retire early and buy an apartment in Tenerife.

In electronics and other engineering fields it is completely normal to visualise data with graphs. And governments and news organisations publish their data in graphs to present it to the general public. I have no idea why this forum is averse to them. For normal people they make trends visible in tables of numbers.

Don't keep much in jars, just a few electroplating solutions I experimented with. Do have hundreds of plastic drawers with thousands of electronic components in them and nuts and bolts, etc, because I design, make and mend things.

In the hot weather, which was the subject of this thread, our back door seized up due to the PVC expanding. So I had to strip down the multi-point lock system and rebuild it with some new screws from my extensive collection and some simple 3D printed parts. Multi-point locks are a bit of a nightmare I realised because they are very complicated inside and if anything breaks it can be impossible to open the door and get to the fault. Fortunately I could open this eventually with brute force on the handle. It is only 17 years old. Seems like eventually they will all wear out with something like a 50% chance you would not be able to open the door.

We had plenty of food in the house as a strategic plan for Brexit as it was always going to happen when we were in Tenerife and there were predictions of food shortages. And also because we have surplus crops in autumn that we turn into frozen meals and eat them in spring. Now we have finished those and are starting to crop this years fruit and veg. We also make our own bread. So we only need to buy meat, fish and dairy plus cereals, rice, lentils and pasta, etc, plus booze.

I wouldn't call it hoarding. That is when crazy people completely fill their entire houses with crap until there is no space left. This all fits neatly in our kitchen cupboards, freezers and some shelves in the garage. We do have plats of garlic and onions hanging from the garage ceiling though.

And now that the test and trace system is up and running you could be asked out of the blue to stay at home for 14 days, so it makes sense to have 14 days of supplies at all times or rely on friends and neighbours and hope they are not quarantined. One of our neighbours has a cough and is isolating while waiting for a test, so we are doing some shopping for them.

Yes I might be lacking a bit on the empathy front and might be at the low end on the autistic spectrum, most good engineers and mathematicians are, but not rain man or Forest Gump league.

So again your only contribution is to insult people.

I have been wondering that as well!
Said in news feed tonight Tenerife's leading hotels to fund their own airline to bring visitors out from UK.
Nophead, you are what my dear old Dad would call a "bighead"
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 29, 2020
Yes I think it is masks for the foreseeable, putting your hand up to go to the toilet and only water to drink and no food.

The president of the Canaries wants everybody to have a test on entry but nobody wants to pay for it. Seems like the only way to not have tourists introduce it again but I don't think the tests are 100% accurate.

The hotel airline looks like a bid to cut the travel companies out of the loop but they only have one aeroplane so far. I think they will struggle to compete with TUI, Ryan air and Easy Jet if they don't go out of business. The hotels are hedging on them doings so.

Smart a.r.s.e, savant, big head any more kind words today? Funny this is the only forum I frequent where people insult each other out of literally dozens I have used over the years.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: pilgrim on June 29, 2020
Well!
That is how you come across?
If you were as successful as you give in your post, why do you only own an apartment and not something
larger like a Villa.
Also the way you skinflint over food!
Also the PVC door business, the locking mechanism is stainless steel, you cannot produce SS from a 3D printer, and never will be able too. Also with regards to the Door/s there is a pre installed wedge on the bottom frame that lifts the very heavy Double glazed door into locking position. This gets knocked out or slides hinge side in heat! Check that first, most people dont know it exists and they adjust the door on the hinges via the allen key slots.
Title: Re: UK new tenerife
Post by: nophead on June 30, 2020
Well more successful than a savant was my point, less successful than Paul Ruane obviously.

And we don't have to skrimp on food, my wife just likes to get good value.

The parts I 3D printed were C shaped nylon spacers behind the handles, that is what the originals were made of but they had fallen to bits leaving the handles with about 3mm end play. Stupid design. The 3D printed ones will probably wear out as well but its easy to print them again.

Stainless steel can be 3D printed but not by me at the moment admittedly. https://all3dp.com/2/stainless-steel-3d-printer-how-to-3d-print-stainless-steel

The reason it jammed was one of the hook shaped latches was very hard to retract when the door was pressing on it. It was riveted together, so I drilled the tops off the riveted posts to get inside.

I found it has some wiggly guide tracks on each side of the casting that part of the hook ran in. One side had no lubrication, so I greased it and it now works. Had I known what it looked like and what the problem was I might have been able to inject some grease but the track wasn't visible from outside.

Drilled and tapped what was left of the posts and screwed it back together. Took three attempts to set the rack and pinion in it on the right tooth.

Now opens a lot easier than we can remember. It always had a tight spot half way through the travel, which corresponded to one of the kinks in the wiggly track. Not sure what the point of it is.

The door hadn't dropped, I think it just warped a bit and needed some force on the locking hooks to pull it closed. Even with the door open it was impossible to operate the dodgy one by hand without the gearbox and handles but the other one moved easily.
