As we're now allowed to move around Andalucia freely after 9 weeks of incarceration, and 3 weeks of limited mobility.......I'm getting back on my search for abandoned locations!

I've done a few abandoned villages, one abandoned railway station.......and hopefully this weekend an abandoned mining village!

And with no support vehicle and film crew either! You won't see shit like this on Buttrider!

So are you guys going to step up to the plate with something?

I've been out delivering honey. I don't extract much spring honey because the bees need it during June when the local nectar flow stops. But there are a number of children who suffer from hay fever and local honey helps.

One lady I went to yesterday hadn't tried it before but she said that the first day her little lad took some it was like his hay fever was just switched off.

I've seen this time and time again. I don't make any promises but parents tell me it works.

Next job is to fix the village flag pole which some numpty has broken.

Just checking in to say hello!

The lockdown has been very busy, I've been working from home.
One of my projects is a power generation project for the NEC, and Nightingale hospital. I wasn't overly fond of them renaming it from "NEC" to suit their media agenda, but whatever.

Volunteered for the NHS, got to use the bike and deliver supplies as a courier. Wasn't bad until I got a 10mm wide puncture in the front on the motorway :shock:

Also been a volunteer "lockdown mental health counsellor". Domestic abuse has flown up, so had to deal with a lot of breakups. It's getting crazy behind a lot of closed doors, put mildly.

Holiday to Cyprus has been cancelled, holiday to Florida in September now looking unlikely. First world problems :lol:

Hope everyone is keeping safe!

Spain records lowest number of new coronavirus cases since March 5.

According to the latest data, just 48 infections were registered in the country, a figure not seen since before the state of alarm was declared.

The plague seems to be fading away all over Europe even in this benighted country although the way the government is carrying on you'd not think so unless of course you are having a riot somewhere. The question is were we conned? I'd like to think not and the number of poor bast*rds who died of it would seem to indicate otherwise but still.......We seem to have wrecked our societies and economies and possibly the next generation's future for what exactly?

I remember them saying that warmer weather may well kill it off.......but a second wave could potentially come once temps start dropping again.

Trouble is nobody and I mean nobody really has a f**k clue about this virus. For every expert opinion there's an equally expert opposite opinion. So in the end we're either all f**k or we aren't. Roll a dice, pick a card it's as likely to be as "true" as anything coming out of any government officials gob anywhere in the world.
