    Our local rate has risen a fair bit over the last week. But as long as hospital admissions stay low it's fine.

    On the subject of Covid, in the USA it now seems mortality is climbing amongst white 50 - 74 year olds.

    I'd be curious to see a more detailed demographic of those 50-74yo. Location and political leaning in particular. Speaking of IPAs though..... I don't know if you can get it in the UK but a craft brewery here called 'Heavy Seas' makes one called 'Double Cannon Double IPA' and it's a killer brew! An IPA hoppy bite and WAY too drinkable for being 9.5% ABV. One... maybe two at the most and you're more than good!

I don't have the capacity to mouth off verbally in front of strangers, so I just seethed my way to a table, but needless to say my fingers hit the laptop keyboard as soon as I got home and I got an apology and free coffee!

    Re incentive to get jabbed? I'm already double-jabbed but should I have required incentive other than moral one then a signed piccy of Tom Hardy lookin' moody would have done nicely.

    Most of these brews are a cure for Covid on their own, or if they're not, you won't care anyway... https://www.brewdog.com/uk/worlds-strongest-beer

    I'm sure you were drinking decaff, Nora?!! I hope they got "shot" of that offensive barista before she could spread any more bile amongst her customers.

    Don't know P. I've never used that Costa since!

    I'm deaf in one ear and normally I'd have missed it? But this particular day I happened to be wearing my deaf aid, so I heard her clearly. Gobby mare!

    I'll see your Double Cannon and raise you Hopshackle Brewery Restoration 2011 - listed in the book "300 beers to try before you die". I'm very partial to the same brewery's Double Momentum (also in the same book).

    Duvel triple hop Citra, 9.5% ABV Belgian IPA. If you want to drink rocket fuel but feel like youíre drinking a light ale, this is genuinely the one for you. Iíve gotten into more craft beers and ales over the past year, one good thing to come out of this lockdown I suppose.

    Jab perks? Wouldnít even consider for a million pounds. Blackmailing to get the jab isnít a good policy.
