Corona Positives

This is not a particularly easy subject to write about. As someone who does not go to work I have self-isolated in what I think is a responsible way for about a week. Food shopping is really the only risk taken.
So are there any positives? Perhaps a few:
1) Every garden should be at the top of its game - no excuse!
2)Homes Under the Hammer is not as bad as is made out.
3) Dave has some good Red Dwarf shows that you can only half remember.....
4) Your sons/daughters phone you more because they are worried about you.
5) And way above all......I will get a Carnegie Season Ticket refund. Only joking of course. I am hoping the 30 will be paid as toilet rolls, pasta and groceries from Morrisons. LOL

Whilst not trying to make light of the tricky conditions we are living in, it is nice to see some good, other examples:
1) Tesco dedicating the browsing, pre-purchase hour on Sunday morning to NHS workers
2) Private hospitals joining the NHS ranks on a "non-profit" basis
3) Jamie Roberts making his Cardiff flat available for a front-line NHS doctor
4) []

On a personal level I have received a month credit on my Eurosport subscription (they are showing 2019 events as nowt going on) and just had a text from Virgin Mobile giving me a free month of more minutes and data than I could use in a year.

It is not all gloom and doom - surely someone else has something positive to add????????

And now Morrisons are devoting the first hour of each day to NHS staff. Credit to them.
