    I did another test late yesterday using the other nostril and no blood and it was negative. Today I am getting blood from that nostril too so result. But my employee has now tested positive and a customer I saw on Monday and Tuesday has tested positive both have similar symptoms. So I think...

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    There was blood on the swab which I just read makes the result invalid. One of my employees has the same symptoms as me but tested negative so who knows. I am feeling better quite quickly though.

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    Looks like the government are all but ruling out any future lockdowns (not surprising or they would have extended furlough again) and are saying its not the time for plan B at least at the moment.

    Co2 bottle, advice please

    I'm not sure but I think the green band means its 70/30, if you want to use it you need a regulator, if you get a CO2 regulator in will not fit on a 70/30 or any mixed gas regulator so its any easy way to tell.

    Has anybody already started to have problems with CO2 supply or price hikes

    The times are before the end of the boil (or how long you boil it) so challenger as soon as it starts to boil and 1st gold 80 mins later or 10 mins before you turn it off.

    Covid the jab and the final stage.

    This update is worth a watch What they don't specifically say (but I can't see how what they do says makes sense otherwise) is pretty much everyone will get exposed to an infectious dose (many multiple times) before we reach a level of herd immunity sufficient to get the R no below 1. I don't...

    Is capitalism exploiting you?

    Cheers for all the replies especially those that disagree with me. I would add that avoiding tax legally or otherwise not only has nothing to do with this video but also has nothing to do with capitalism. McDonalds is an interesting structure as its mainly (possibly 100% I don't know)...
