Virgin Atlantic just cancelled my flights. Travel plans in disarray.
Interesting piece on the results of Finland's experiment of the effect of Universal Basic Income that showed that it led to a "small increase in employment, significantly boosted multiple measures of the recipients’ well-being, and reinforced positive individual and societal feedback loops."
It's really annoying that so many US companies won't accept orders from overseas even if they are for delivery to US addresses.
The one that MrsG just tried to order stuff for her mother on, first wouldn't let her checkout after geo-locating our IP to the UK.
Using my VPN fixed that until it then refused the order because her PayPal account wasn't created in the USA. And don't even think about trying to use a non USA credit card.
This is disagraceful.

Since the beginning of lockdown in March I've, on and off, been building a 1:35 scale Chinook HC MK1 kit. I have a lot of hours invested.
I was just putting the final coat of paint on before applying the transfers and I dropped it.
It immediately reverted to kit form.
Only this time most of the parts are not in the box but under the bloody furniture!
Excuse for a while whilst I stand in a corner and swear very loudly for a very long time!
