So sorry to hear of the new COVID-19 cases and deaths in Belgium; these are unprecedented times; the news this morning reports that China has zero new cases - good news; hopeful this will peak very soon and the sickness and loss of life will cease.

Indeed - the epicenter was the Life Care Center in Kirkland, WA....a care center for the elderly that are sick east of downtown Seattle appx 5 miles; it spread through the center like wildfire and there are now 10 additional elderly care centers in the greater Seattle area that have multiple COVID-19 cases; we live appx 50 miles from the Seattle downtown core.

Seattle recorded the first US fatality last Feb; WA state has 65 deaths of the 140+ deaths for the entire US....it's scary; we have been self-quarantined for nearly two weeks.

Got some more milk today but third time lucky at Waitrose when a delivery was just made! The first two stores were bone dry, want to delay to start using the long life ones that are stored.

I really hope scientists discover where the evil came from . Anyway like I already said ,I really start to believe the conspiracy theories...

On my way to work , I pulled over at my bakery to buy some breads , pie and pastries.
I opened the door and I couldn't believe my eyes . There was a big plastic curtain in front of me . It separated me from the showcase .
There was only a small gap of 25-30 cm through the plastic screen .
I'm OK with that . But I expected not to see such a situation in front of me . Actually it looked unreal ...
There were red lines on the floor with the message : Do not cross this line , and keep distance !
Anyway the pastries are from a outstanding quality ( not cheap ) !

Stay healthy my friends !

It's very good your baker is on the ball with his 'countermeasures' ensuring there are no issues.
Was raining yesterday later in the day here so didn't get much done but weather looks more promising today so determined to get the garden finished but garage was finally cleared. Will be loading the M to take the bags and junk to the dump..terrible you may be thinking of an M being used like this but an effective thick plastic boot covering will protect it from the elements, the rear seats being split/fold so just one trip should do it.

My friend , once It's done you will get also the satisfaction from the job .
Last weekend I did an oil change with my lawn mower and I mowed my lawn .
For the moment I'm getting me ready for work . I'm never done and busy like usual !
Time to go....
Stay safe and healthy ....

A good idea in theory but too many of them, there's also health and safety concern with people using them as coffee table bases etc as they pong also.

Greetings M5 and MBelgium,

Thank you for the updates; it sounds like the bakery creates exquisite pastries....awesome! If they have a website, post it! Or just post their name and I'll look it up.

The garage is cleared and the M will be properly tucked in - YAY! Post a pic of the M sleeping in it's new berth.

Not really it's up North about 160 miles away from me; I must say the Lotus name is synonymous with lightness and speed.
That Turbo Esprit used in the 007 film by Roger Moore was a hit with me!
