There are more important things happening at the moment but it was good to see the new Labour leader Keir Starmer giving his support to the Government at this important time in our history
Amusingly Jeremy Corbyn, delusional to the end claimed " that he was leaving the party in a position to win the 2024 general election"

But a more realistic Mr Starmer said "We've just lost four elections in a row.... we need to change"

Let's get this Coronavirus sorted out as a united front and then see what happens afterwards because when all the dust has settled we know that we needed more NHS staff and Police officers than the number we were left with after 10 years of austerity

This is a sobering story........

Wife of healthy firefighter left in intensive care with Covid-19 tells how virus can attack 'anyone'
Becky Landon's husband Steve is starting a drug trial to help others with coronavirus and is urging everyone to stay at home.

A 'fit and healthy' firefighter spent 10 days in intensive care after being struck down by coronavirus.

Children's nurse Becky Landon today told how her husband Steve suffered with cold-like symptoms before collapsing twice and struggling to breathe.

The 39-year-old Deeside firefighter was taken to Wrexham Maelor Hospital where he is still being treated.

Becky said the virus was like a "roller coaster" that could make a patient's health deteriorate just when they appear to be getting better.

The dad-of-four, who lives in Wrexham, came out of intensive care yesterday, but is still receiving oxygen on another ward.

And Becky revealed "superhero" Steve has agreed to trial a new drug that could help other Covid-19 patients in future.

Toyota to make face shields
Car maker Toyota, which has an engine plant in Deeside, has announced plans to make face shields and hands-free door openers at European plants.

The firm said it would use 3D printer technology to make the items in demand due to the pandemic.

It’s not yet clear how the announcement will affect the Deeside factory, which employs about 600 people and ceased production last month.  ref BBC

I had a walk down King's Drive yesterday and stopped at the cross roads with the Old Highway to take a photo of the building Cambrian mentioned previously.  Then I followed the Old Highway past the Zoo and it was sad to see that the Zoo was closed just like so many businesses are with this lockdown
Just before Seren Y Dyffryn the caravan park I turned left and took the public footpath up to "The View"  but just as I got into the field I was surprised to see the monkey on the gate so I took his photo.     I only stayed at the view long enough to take some photos and then made my way home along Copthorne Road
It was only after I got home that I checked my camera and found that the settings were wrong so I deleted most of the photos.     Still I reckon there will be a few more months of this lockdown so I'll be able to do the walk again sometime
