Rejoice: A new high score at snake chasing at the Greek Hovel

My daughter calls to wish me a happy father's day. Sadly she has not been tracking my whereabouts and so this serves as a just past midnight wake up call. It is not as if I can sleep anyway. The fan is broken and the heat inside the Greek Hovel is unbearable. I dare not open a window for fear of what might come and join me, although the night air is cool.

Now and again I venture onto the small balcony outside my prison cell which looks over the valley towards the deserted monastery. I stand there in just my underpants for there are no humans anywhere and it is refreshing. I return inside, seal the door and within minutes sweat is again pouring down my arms and off my face. I suppose it must be good for the figure.

Unable to sleep, I play the one game that sits on my battered old Nokia phone, the sort of old handset that causes my daughter to say "oh Daddy" as if I have committed some appalling faux pas. Now you may think that it is strange, given how my life out here is driven by a fear of snakes, but the game is called Snake Xenzia and I have just recorded a score of 1,524 which is a new personal best. So there.

You may well say that this is ten minutes of my life wasted. I agree completely. But pro tem sleep is just impossible and I cant spend the whole night watching old Def Leppard videos on youtube. Something which, in itself, is not the most productive way to spend my time

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: As Boris gets Coronavirus the Doomsayers cannot have it both ways

Natch I wish the Prime Minister a speedy recovery from Covid 19. I am sure that like almost all healthy victims he will recover and refer you to my two podcasts HERE and HERE as to why the Doomsayers are engaing in GroupThink but really cannot have it both ways: the virus cannot be both highly contagious and highly lethal. I discuss why the three day shares rally, now reversed today, cannot be justified in terms of the likely curve of corporate earnings recovery. I look at Next (NXT), Optibiotix (OPTI) and dual listings, Dev Clever (DEV) & Royal Mail Group (RMG)
