At this difficult time we do NOT want rumours of that nature getting about Shame on ye.

3 of my Irish cousin’s children are giving a daily ‘cabin fever’ gig on YouTube. One of them is due to give birth inna fortnight.

Gawds

Not interesting enough to post on youtube. Ewww. Please!


#3434

I hope not, Gus!
Cousin was a Midwife for years, & now lectures on Nursing, so they are in a rather more fortunate position than most of rural Ireland ATM.

The child will probably be born singing. My father was the only one bearing the Fambly name who couldn’t hold a tune inna bucket…

Correction

My brother couldn’t either

It didn’t stop them trying though :joy:

Back in the mists of time, when people used go to pubs, I remember two old boys, rather the worse for wear, singing away together at the end of the bar. I say together, but that doesn’t really cover it. They were never in the same key, and at the end of each verse would independently switch to a new one. The funny thing was that within each verse neither shifted a cent, and their individual intonation was spot on. The result was a curious form of organum, with the interval changing for every verse - and rarely to anything that could be found on a tempered instrument.


#3436

Exactly, Joe!

How are you tonight?

When it emerges they should have a bucket on hand and check whether or not it can sing before deciding how to proceed.

Although that approach might be a bit too Rural for some stomachs :wink:


#3438

Temp still up - but stabilised round the 38° mark. It was higher, so hopefully it’ll start heading in the direction of what passes for normality tomorrow. About to test again, actually, so watch this space…


#3439

Get in touch with the Mailbox - Pip could help out…


#3440

Here in rural west you can be asked to sing before you are accepted into a pub

Joe you do know that a temperature of 38 is when seek medical help don’t you?


#3441

Now 37.6, so will see what happens in the morning. I’m not in any particular at-risk category, so even if I did test positive I’d be told to carry on with what I’ve been doing anyway! Probably better not to waste their time. As I said, it seems to have peaked - it’s been dropping since yesterday.
