I think it’s too early maybe start consider when we roughly have half the population vaccinated

I block the numbers, but my land line phone only has a 100 blocked call limit, so soon fills up, have to delete and start again.
Yep, the same stuff, but with my mobile 💩 . Looking for calls blocking app, but the apps collect a lot of your data. So I`m thinking what to choose. 🤨

Things are going well now.

I used to use an app for call blocking - I can't remember the name but the logo was an octopus. I think it was called Should I answer?

Morning Everybody from Arvada, Colorado. Still OK here, plumbing is essential as always. Is anyone else having a hard time finding willing employees? Not many applicants since Covid hit, but the work never slowed down.

Morning all - doing ok here, especially as I'm trying to slow down a bit now I'm approaching 63.
Business has been good up to now and I've had my second jab (on Tuesday) with relatively small side effects although I think that what I experienced might have been more to do with having the jab in the morning and then doing 3 hours of martial arts training in the evening :)
I hope that everyone is staying safe and remembering to sanitize hands and wear a mask (properly, not just over the mouth) when inside, if there are others present that is.
I've been doing the lateral flow tests twice a week as well because I do a fair bit of work in care homes. I was travelling 8 miles to get the test done but now I can do it at home it really helps to ease the pressure on my time

I’ve worked through the pandemic, only things that are different is: our customers attitude - some think the jab is the be all and end all. Also our working policy is to wear a mask still until August. I was and still am undecided about the jab. PPE has remained the same, gloves and mask. Minor supply issues.

Morning everybody.
  1. Hope you are all well. What have you got on today / the rest of this week?
  2. How are we all feeling? I think we need help each other out a bit when we're in times like these. Hope you're doing okay.
  3. When are you up for your jab? - Do you know yet?
  4. How's work, is it still trickling through or has it dried up? Or perhaps you're booming at the moment with boilers breaking left right and center.
  5. What PPE extras are you taking?
  6. Which suppliers are open physically? Which are online only? Where are you getting your stuff from?
Answer all or any or nowt. Let's see if we can check in and help each other out.
Question to anybody out there..... would you say 6 foot 5 is too tall to become a plumber ????

Raining here. Welcome to Devon!

Not raining, but typical English grey day without sun and around 15°C at a guess. Unusual to have a dry grey day here at 3000ft altitude, so I'm guessing it will rain at some point.
