6620418Good morning...

We are on strike over here in France today.

I'm not sure what we are striking about...

It's something to do with Coronavirus but,

I'm not really sure that it's the government's fault that some guy in China ate an under cooked bat.

And I'm also not sure that the best response is to gather in large groups in public to rant and rage and to do lots of shouting.

Still, if it keeps the natives happy?

We are lucky in my part of France (Finisterre - which means the end of the world) we are one of the few departments (counties) which is not considered at risk.

This isn't because we are more healthy here but more to do with the fact that we are so behind the times...

We haven't got round to inventing Coronavirus yet.

On another note...

Today I shall be working on the problem where the Speed Ratings don't get copied to the data directory every now and again.

If I manually watch the ratings being produced, they always work but...

The moment I turn my back - yes, you've got it.

I'm not sure what the answer is but I may have to put a 10 minute pause in the script to give it time to do everything it needs to do before sending the ratings out.

Something to make you smile...

One for me, one for you...

There was a huge nut tree by the cemetery fence.

One day two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.

"One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy.

The bucket was so full, several rolled out towards the fence.

Cycling down the road by the cemetery was a third boy.

As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery.

He slowed down to investigate.

Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you."

He knew what it was. "Oh my god!" he shuddered, "It's Satan and St. Peter dividing the souls at the cemetery!"

He cycled down the road and found an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come quick!" he said, "You won't believe what I heard. Satan and St. Peter are down at the cemetery dividing the souls."

The man said, "Shoo, you brat! Can't you see I'm finding it hard to walk as it is!"

After several pleas, the man hobbled to the cemetery and heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one..."

The old man whispered, "Boy, you's been tellin' the truth! Let's see if we can see the Devil himself."

Shivering with fear, they edged toward the fence, still unable to see anything, but they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me. And one last one for you. That's all. Let's go get those nuts by the fence, and we'll be done."

They say the old guy made it to town 10 minutes before the boy!


A Priest, a Doctor and an Engineer...

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.

The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"

The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!"

The priest said, "Here comes the green-keeper. Let's have a word with him."

He said, "Hello George, what's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?"

The green-keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind firemen. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let
them play for free anytime."

The group fell silent for a moment.

The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight."

The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything he can do for them."

The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"
