You can call me TC

Off to England again. It's very quiet at Baden-Baden Airport. No doubt it will be busier at Stansted. This afternoon I shall be in Cambridge; will be passing 2legs' house.

I don't really go many places with crowds these days, which is fortunate with this new epidemic starting.

I'm not one to be pessimistic, but I can't help thinking of the scene in the airport at the end of "Twelve Monkeys".

The Germans have a word for talking about worst case scenarios like that: "Den Teufel an die Wand malen" (painting the Devil on the wall)

It will be interesting to see how this virus develops. A doctor on the radio today said there are a thousand different viruses circulating at any time.

Gnomon - time to move on

That reminds me of a woman I met once with a double-barrelled name:

Reed-Schmied.

I'm not knocking Baden-Baden. I've never been there.

In 1970, I was in Berlin, Munich, and a Monastery in the Bavarian Alps.
Much of West Berlin was impressive. Munich, not so much. But the area around the Black Forest sounds divine. "The Hidden life of trees" was written by an arborist who works in the Black Forest.

Sorry to drift off-topic.

Six cases in Ireland plus three in Northern Ireland so far.

"Take a water cure, son," said the dad
Of an ailing young shepherd. Sad lad,
He consulted his ewes
Over which spa to choose:
"Baden-Baden's a bad un," they baaed.

I've lost my suitcases often enough that nowadays I take the worst case when I travel.

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

Maybe the anticorona measures can eliminate some other viruses as well...

Am I really the only one who has the last scene from "12 Monkeys" continually running in my internal cinema?
