Re: U.K. going on lockdown, USA stopping restricting movement. WTF

Good day Mr SWW... It would be interesting to have two charts: one showing the WORLD-USA (as you have it now ) and one comparing the USA Vs UK progression.
Thanks
Stay safe.

Re: soldering solution

Beautiful, i am assuming that your mother is retired. Retirees are not all sitting all day in front of a large ARCHA. Some of us RETIREES have things to do, things to manage, have a schedule, have a life. Retirement does not equal IDLE. Bravo to your mother.

Mick.. Yes you are right two sides to every story, BUT there is only one President who should lead by example.
Citing one side of the story does not in anyway mean that you are ignoring the other side....Have a safe pleasant day.

This way they can limit the interaction between Thais and freign visitors. The hotel, restaurant etc selection c...
