European equity markets should continue their decline on Wednesday, in the wake of the Asian stock markets, which are moving in the red at the end of the session.


Over the last few days we have seen a substantial amount of money wiped off the stock market due to the effects of the COVID-19 virus. [Time to roll out the man with his head in his hands picture] This effects pensions, government planning and financial institutions and likely a ton of other bodies and organisations that I am thankfully unaware of.

Funny really. Looking out the window here the sun is out and the dog wants his breakfast.

The real world just rolls on.

Sure people are worried and folks are dying and that is of course serious and a major concern to anyone effected by such but I am reminded of the day my dad died back more than 20 years ago.

I was returning to the family home to get a shower before returning to his bedside and the traffic was jammed up. It was August and the weather was good and it was busy and lively as people pursued their daily chores . Did no one know my dad was dying?

I suppose what I am saying is there is a permanent disconnect between events and the effects that these events have on the effectee. It’s hard wired into the DNA I guess to ignore.

Now back to Ted.

Death Is Not Your Friend

Well, I’ll start but just saying it. Death is not your friend.

Or as Nick Cave puts it, not the end.

Today, on Tuesday 25022020 the end feels like this. The Corona virus has given a lot of journalists and TV(slash)Radio commentators a lot to talk about. And that is good surely? It feels very comforting that all these well-paid folks can be secure in their place. But is it news they tell of? Is it news that we are hearing? Or is it agenda?

I am feeling more and more convinced that nothing is as it is told. The world feels very manipulating and the people in it are the manipulated.

Beware the agenda of larger organisations they are pulling in a different direction and one that is not for the good of all.

Listening to Nick Cave Ghosten and it feels right that this is the sound of today.

Be good and always disbelieve what you are asked to believe

Corona 24022020

Still pissing down in glory town.

Stock market has taken a tumble as Corona has now spread to Iran and Italy. Interesting that both these countries start with the letter I! Maybe the Universe in all its wisdom has decided to decimate the planet in an organised and alphabetical way.

Jamaica beware.

Somehow I just don’t see this spreading to Bob’s domain.

Buy gold!
