The one thing with 21 days off horse racing and I’m sure they will extend the 21 days,this could be enough time for me to try and stop when things are back to normal.Lately with results like they are and unpoliced,I have been trying to slow down.
Does anyone know of any online poker site that they recommend.

lots of people from informal settlements dont have uncapped contracts. they use wifi hotspots etc when they are out and about.
this would allow people to study at home etc
would reduce people walking about as well , sure other social benefits as well.

I just missed the second world war but had an indication what people went through via mum and dad.
In these days it was Churchill doing the talking and tonight we had Ramaphosa.
I felt he came over well and was clear and distinctive and well focused on what we have to do .
We all have massive decisions and disciplines to follow to ensure his call is met.
I certainly had a few JWBs to brace myself for his address to the Nation.
As you may be aware I came to KZN to visit my grandkids and watch noble diana (have her last race).
We now find ourselves at my daughter's home in Kloof with the grandkids and must say no complaints about being in lockdown mode here.
It will be a challenge for the next few weeks but our place in Pretoria is in good hands.
I have always been hyperactive and not being able to go out and socialise is difficult, it has always been a big part of our life, especially during our last few years of retirement.
I am at the stage that i don't fear death but rather life.
In the words of the WHO ( not the World Health Organization) but the band, Daltrey, Moon and Townsend.
From the track My Generation "hope I die before I get old".
Based on you don't want to be a bumbling idiot or burden on family.
My point is ......what are we going to do to keep busy during the 21 days?
From my side, keep the kids busy, some handy work, try some daily exercise, keep mind active, watch tv, have a few dops, maybe a few braais, few quiz/card game, listen to my fav band's.
Not to sound morbid but my daughter helped me make up my play list for the funeral.
No official date set as worried about crowd restrictions, but have enough good songs to cover a few days.
Some really good numbers.
This thread is obviously a bit tongue in the cheek but felt it might keep us sharing some of our thoughts and concerns going forward.
Keep safe and in doors 😷👍🍹
