    HELP THE NHS ~ I've let my adjoining empty house (fully furnished) to four NHS nurses free of charge during this National Emergency. We have a very large General Hospital at the top of the road. Some of these nurses have to travel large distances to the hospital. Now these nurses are in walking distance to the hospital. My late wife was a Nurse and I'm sure she would approve of my actions. It's the least we can do for our 'Angels' who work very long and dedicated hours. When this emergency is over my Grand-daughter and her family will move into the house. Tom.

    Well, it's about 16 months since I posted here. I've been lurking for a couple of months or so, but feel now is the time to join in, contribute hopefully, and to gain again from the camaraderie of fellow TRR'rs. Here are the TR and Stag, taken in Feb after they had both had a run out. They both got a run the day before the current restrictions came into force. If the travel restrictions remain then I'm sure one or both will be employed on a shopping trip at some point.

    John Yes I do listen to the TV and radio It told me that people who exhibit symptoms were being tested. How true is that? Only a few know Early action only delays. Take Germany. Today their health minister (I think it was) stated that there will be a big increase in CV19 deaths. Germany got lucky, testing early, mainly, it turn out the young fit and healthy skiers, returning from holiday; not my words . . His. Thus their figures are skewed. I stated the obvious because it needed stating. The media are screaming about the lack of PPE and they are right, there is a lack, but, the gov't we have is the best of a bad job, the alternative being JC. I don't think they are deliberately making themselves public enemy No1, there is a tonne of kudos and years in power on offer if they get it right, why would they not want that? I don't excuse anyone John, not my place. I mearly offer what I see as a reasonable counter to your position. Is your position wrong? I don't know. Is mine wrong? I don't know. Only time will tell. What I will say is, that being constantly negative, without offering positive counters, does no one any favours. It's a problem the BBC have but havn't yet recognised. If someone constantly cries wolf, the audience stops listening. I note that you ignored my last comment . . . I rest my case.

    Knock Knock ...How do you make a duck into a great singer...you put it into a microwave and wait until it's Bill Withers. Time passes and music marks the memory of good times and bad and who can forget Bill Withers contribution who has recently passed away aged 81. Neil McCormick in the Telegraph reports Bill Withers walked away from music in 1985, when he was 47. He had done all he needed to, had made a lot of money, and by all accounts enjoyed a long and productive retirement. He released no more music for the next 35 years and expressed no regrets. So let us not become too overwrought at his death, at 81, from heart issues, surrounded by his family. For those of us who only knew him through his music, he left a small but perfectly formed catalogue of some of the greatest songs ever written and recorded. It is very hard to put a finger on what made Withers so unique. His sound existed in a place between blues, soul, gospel, country, funk, jazz and pop. His arrangements were sleek and unfussy. And he sung with relaxed pace and restrained emotion, never over-stressing nor employing any of the showy, expressive techniques common in R’n’B music. His songs were melodious, philosophical, pared down to their essence and usually very short and to the point. But wow, they did everything a song needed to in their allotted space and time. It's going to be more difficult to find those "Lovely days" without Bill. Mick Richards

    When restoring an old Triumph (or no doubt an MG), it used to be possible to check when the bodywork had been repaired. After digging out the filler, just look for the date on the newspaper! Nigel

    The wedge is having an extra long hibernation in the garage. Sadly it is 20 miles away in my partner's parents garage, so I will not get to see it again for a while. I had planned on taking it out for a drive next Thursday to coincide with my birthday, I am rather sad that won't be happening. Hoping the majority of the travelling restrictions will be lifted before the end of Summer.

    Hi Tom, You clearly aren't a fan of the Tory Party, or New Labour to judge from your posts about TB. It doesn't look like you are a Royalist either so who would you like to be in charge? Jezza - surely not! Who is going to save us from this mess? Rgds Ian

    A full, accountable critique of the government's preparedness and response will probably not come for years, which is unfortunate because we need to learn all the lessons we can fast, both for the next waves of this virus and the possibility that a new one on top of coronavirus could be even more catastrophic if that's possible to contemplate. My take, for what it's worth, is that we are struggling in several areas mainly as a consequence of errors in contingency planning. If you read various iterations of the published UK Pandemic Flu Plan, it's pretty clear that the presumed strategy was always that we would accept rapid passage of the virus across the population while keeping public services and the economy functioning. Fatalities of up to 750,000 were acknowledged as consequences of that approach. I could see no real mention of a possible need to be able to ramp up diagnostic testing beyond hospital patients and primary care staff, or of the international shortage of test chemicals that would almost certainly occur. Nor of the need to go into rapid production of additional ventilators. Of course it's not possible from the outside to know whether the planning deficiencies were down to assumption errors by public health experts, or whether policymakers said, behind closed doors, "now look... it's just not financially feasible to maintain a standby mass testing capacity in the UK, so let's just leave that out of the plan, shall we?". Although it has been suggested in some media reports that that is indeed the reason why the PPE stockpiling plans only "assumed" a need for level one protection, rather than having level two stocks (at five times the cost). These (flawed, as it turns out) contingency plans have been around for several decades. The pandemic just happens to have happened on this government's watch. Nigel

    Rather laying my classics up for lockdown, I'm currently using them in rotation for essential trips to the shops. This is of course allowed under the current restrictions but I realise the police may pull me over suspecting I'm simply out for pleasure. I take a shopping list and carrier bags, which should provide some evidence that my journey is essential. Nigel

    All the numbers of pins (which gives the number of start positions) on the wheels are co-primes. Picking up on John’s calculation the number of start positions comes to about 1.6x10^16. It’s not a factorial but as Rob points out it derives from the number of pins or cams on each wheel. The total complexity multiplies that fairly big number by an even bigger one. I'll leave that hanging for a bit. Incidentally, the Baudot-Murray 5 bit code has 32 binary states and this has certain consequences. When this madness is over I’ll set up another National Museum of Computing visit. Then I can explain things with the real props to hand including Colossus.

    John D, Whilst there may have been some value in testing to see who was infected in the beginning, that train has left the station. To me it is now more important to know who has had it and therefore has immunity. Also, I have seen so many conflicting statements about the effectiveness or otherwise of face masks I don't know who to believe. And finally, whilst the decisions on what strategy to adopt are being made by politicians, they are guided by two eminently qualified individuals. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Rgds Ian

    We have no idea about how many people in the UK have CV19? Agreed, not a clue But as for the politicians and Royalty comment . . . .I'm not sure that there is any real evidence to support the position. There seems to be a general tendency to berate the govt for the lack of testing being undertaken Yes, the UK was slow to get off the testing mark Does it do any good to continually groan on about it? My guess is; probably not. From the man (whoever he is) pressing the 'testing' GO button, it takes time to put into practice There is a globally streched supply line, trying to meet the demands from over 100 countries. Many UK companies have stepped up to the mark, or in the case of Mercedes F1, torn off the mark like a greyhound Testing for front liners is coming, later than anyone would like, but, we all know it's on its way Tory govt . . .hands comment . . .again, I'm not sure that this is really fair. Do you really believe that any gov't of a different hue, would have done anything radically different I'm pretty sure the answer is no I am not going to moam, it does no good, all I am going to do, as a confirmed atheist, is say a quiet prayer for all those, like yours, who are going above and beyond, in trying to stop this pandemic from taking any more victims

A TR has to be seen in public at some stage in it's life , or what's the point of having a a classic. Keep safe Boys, Conrad.
