Well said Mary, if we all ignore him, donít answer anything he posts, he will eventually move onto another site.

Georgie , I don't think that you are welcome on this medium as you continue to bore the pants off us with your gobbledegook. Now go and read your holiday brochures.

What a miserable OLD bunch you are, lighten up or get lost! It's all C R A P P Y enough everywhere at the
moment, your all like the KKK, not hiding behind a robe but a keyboard. Sorry if Georgie doesn't come up to your intellect or vocabulary levels!
Maybe you should take a sedative and have a lie down, or wake up and get a LIFE!

We are all hiding behind a keyboard as you put it Pilgrim, you included although some of us do use our proper names.
You mentioned lack of intellect and vocabulary as a reason for people getting fed up with Georgies posts, surely   you donít need to be intellectual to be a troll, just a trouble maker fits the description.

Pilgrim, you neednít apologise to me for Georgie not reaching my heights of intellect or vocabulary, he could do that himself. But no, he clearly doesnít reach any heights of any social or educational standards. His posts are repetitive, misspelt, mistyped, boring, lacking content and totally unnecessary.  His one aim is to annoy and cause upset on what by and large is a very useful base for answering questions and learning information on the area around and including LG, this is what it was designed for.

I am old, I am hopefully discerning, and I always aim to be polite and respectful of othersí opinions. If Iíve got nothing useful to say on this site I donít post. You may champion people like GEORGIE, for whatever reason. Some of us are totally fed up with his posts, opinions, constant request for Ďupdate of worksí. With your encouragement we will have to endure his needless posts for much longer.

Perhaps Georgie and Pilgrim are one and the same person.  It has been known on this website in the past (all may be not what it seems !!)

LGK I don't think so.  Look at the stats.

Me 14 years a member     1188 posts  average .228

Pilgrim 13 years a member 1034 posts average .221

Georgie 4 years a member  1174 posts average .712

I rest my case. Empty vessels make the most noise. QED

GEORGIE - reading your insulting remarks to Edward Bear  demonstrates as nothing else can to me, that you know b....r all about LG. Edward Beard is a legend in his own lifetime, those of us who used to go to Taganaste many years ago so well remember being entertained by him, and he is a legend. How very dare you!!!

Angie what is wrong with you, Georgie has not been rude at all - YOU HAVE!  My mother in law got rude and insulting and then later diagnosed with early onset sadly, so she was forgiven.
And regards to Taganasti, we don't remember anyone being rude like you there. Generally a good bunch trying to get the Live music scene going! We would joke with Fred and Glynis (god bless them) that the place should be called Tastynasty, the only blessing was that you couldn't really see what you were eating with the dull lighting.
It costs nothing to be polite.
And you don't have to read a post by any particular person should you not wish!
GROW UP!

Back to restrictions, I see Tenerife has had their Special status extended until the 4th of December because of the large increase of covid cases.

Also with the chance of receiving the vaccine in January in the UK, it looks like our winter break my be put back this year

Thanks I did know that, we have flights booked or the 12th, the problem is not the date but the talk of having a lockdown in Tenerife if the figures keep increasing.

Having spent 6 weeks in the last lockdown, just getting the sun on your back is not enough when you feel you are in a police state, and the only thing you are allowed to do is breath or shop for food.

The townhouse we rented was great, the complex it was in there were only about 6 owners living there, the heated pool was fantastic, the most people we had seen in it was 3 in 10 weeks they chained & padlocked the entry gates & with all the bars & restaurants closed it was not much of a holiday at the end.

My wife & myself would rather stay at home than go through that again

Case numbers have been pretty static recently at about 70 / 100K / week, which is above the magic 50 threshold but it still keeps the Canaries as a whole below 50, so the government seems content to let it tick along with a couple of deaths a day as they are desperate to have tourism.

I think the next escalation would be a curfew, rather than a full lockdown, but who knows?

There are 9 active cases in the Santiago del Teidi region at the moment.

Where do you get your figures from ? I understand there are far more cases in SDT but reliable figures are very hard to come by.mi agree with you Unhappy as we too endured the lockdown previously imposed, to me the reality was the 100,000 tourists who left the island reduced the figures incredibly, but Iím no expert.

Nophead, yes figures can be very misleading, there are only 9 cases reported in SDT but the figure is increasing, also in the last 3 days there has been 14 fatalities in Tenerife but none in SDT.

You only need one person with undetected covid from PDC or ADH where the infections are rising exponentially to visit the area, and anything could happen to those figures, there are idiots in Tenerife as well as the UK.

My post was not about that though, it was about the possibility of another lockdown there, and as you jumped ship before it came in to action, sorry you have no idea what it was like.

The figures come from here: https://grafcan1.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/156eddd4d6fa4ff1987468d1fd70efb6

There have been new cases in SDT while we were here but also people have recovered, so the active cases is about the same. No deaths in SDT not even any in hospital while we have been here, or ever if the figures are to be believed. Not sure where it counts the death as when you die in hospital.

Seems like the R  value is about 1 so it could go either way. It is like a pencil balanced on its point.

We were here in March when the lockdown started, so I agree it was no fun. If it happens again we might jump ship again, but the UK is much worse at the moment. We haven't been allowed to socialise with anybody in the UK for months and it looks like that will stay until the vaccine next year. We only had a few weeks of freedom to host people in July and Sept. There are a few days at Christmas but we probably wouldn't see anybody because they would use their 3 household limit with closer family.

The big difference in the first lockdown was you couldn't go out for exercise. Unless they do that again, I think we are better off here. We can socialise with friends and go to bars and restaurants.

Yes, still strange times! We are back home in Uk now. But planning to be out early January all being well.
The flights from Gatwick look very cheep at moment, but may wait a couple of weeks to see how the land lies, so to speak!
Dear Unhappy, nice to read you and Nophead are all okay now!
