Corona Virus

A  nasty creation of nature to teach man, a lesson or two
For indifference towards nature as well to its creatures too
Selfishness and competition destroy earth & living beings
Coronavirus is the latest weapon & nature is fighting back

Exploitation should have a limit, but man does ignore
Every bit of land & even the space deemed to explore
Consumption is the rule even going against nature
Covid 19,  this ‘Earth’s silver bullet’, could man conquer?

Hence future is bleak  for every Tom, Dick and Harry
Age or sex no exception must learn the lesson in a hurry
Otherwise, be the end of the world as predicted by Edgar Cayce
Modern life is a battle, the motto is, ‘wash hands thoroughly’

It’s to date the most powerful weapon of mother nature
with capabilities to overcome man’s crulity and conquer
Trying to teach civility & selflessness, often falls on deaf ear
Selfless  doctors and health care workers, rest should revere

‘Covid 19’ is a treacherous fellow being  an RNA only virus
Almost indestructible as it rapidly produces imputative virions
Unless man gets the better of it with an effective antidote
Earth will be a dead planet as Edgar Cayce’s hypnotic findings

Quarantine. Shanghai style.A lesson for all of us.

Dear colleagues, I am sharing this video made by a New Zealander to show how woefully inadequate we have been with our ports of entry to date.The ” genie ” is out of the bottle and now we are in lockdown.The word quarantine comes from Italian ” Quaranta Giomi”, meaning 40 days.Between 1340-1350, the whole of Europe was nearly depopulated by the Plague.It was assumed that the infections came in and from the ships that came from near and far( the relationship to rats and fleas was not known at that time),yet they quarantined all ships coming to Venice for 40 days at Dubrovnik in Croatia.Why ,40 days you may ask.?Italy was a roman catholic country and 40 days frequently appears in the bible related to many important events.This was the period that Jesus spent purifying his soul in the desert after he was baptised by John the baptist.History, repeats itself and here we are in the 21 st century playing with a virus that is very contagious very much like the plagues and viruses of years gone by. Eddie.


The snake catcher.A hobby or an occupation.?

I guess we are all in the lock down phase of getting to grips with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.The attached clip is a diversion for all of us.These young chaps are dicing with death, in trying to catch Cobras.Is it a hobby or an occupation ? Hope it will take your mind off our current predicament in contending withis pandemic.

In New Zealand we go into phase 4 of the Pandemic plan tomorrow.No social gatherings,over 70 yr olds confined to their homes,only visits to Super markets, doctors,gas stations and pharmacies are allowed.Phase 4 is initially for 4 weeks .The police will see that the restrictions are adhered to.To date we have identified 102 cases, all in recent arrivals from abroad but there have been 2 cases with no contact history with recently returned.This makes it likely that there is community spread and the government has decided to lockdown sooner rather than later.It appears that the young have no social conscience, without restrictions and a lockdown.Over the week end, Bondi beach in Australia was teeming with people..This behaviour as well as the community spread has resulted in our decision.I think it is a good decision by our PM as otherwise we may end up like in Italy and Spain.!!

I have posted this as a distraction away from the boredom that is to come with self quarantine.Keep well, Enjoy the time at home and keep well. Keep in touch through our blog wheneverbyou have the time.Take care of yourselves.Eddie.
