Love the American accents or at least whatever accents I get on Netflix! Is Cuomo still doing a daily briefing? I watched them on youtube for ages and then finally gave up, when I knew exactly what he was going to say next - kind of like him though! How is it going for you in NY? You had it really tough for sure.

Hi Genni and Mary, nice to 'meet' you both. I've only just joined the site and I thought I'd better start saying hello! I'm down in Wales and, like most, I'm hoping this thing goes away so I can get out quite a bit more, including, hopefully, meeting a person/people to enjoy a good walk with etc. I've always loved the outdoors and it would be good to explore even more exciting places at some point.

It would be nice to hear from you

HI Hawk24,

I only joined the site a few weeks ago & have only conversed with two people, I thought that maybe because I'm Scottish folks think I'm trouble!!! We are having quite a time of it up here as well but I don't think its as bad as Wales. Are you in a walking group or library group - although they might not be able to function just now. I go walking with my husband (who is not too fit) most mornings & we are thinking of getting a wee dog - I think that helps with meeting people.

I was involved in some groups including ceilidh dancing which was great fun & am missing the company.

Do you have family near to keep you company??

Hi Genni, I'm new also - I live in Fife, Scotland and we are having it a bit tough here at the moment - Its almost like someone has thought of a way to get rid of all the oldies & drive us all crazy in the meantime. I did all sorts of activities before lockdown but one by one they are all closing down. Try to keep busy. Do you have family around? Are you a reader?

Feel free to get in touch - Mary
