No idea what they're proselytising about, as the only placard I've been able to see just says "Time to stand up and be counted"

    Possibly anti-vaxxers or anti-maskers. If so, let's hope a lorry mounts the pavement, then we can watch them use their Facebook-derived knowledge of medicine to treat their own injuries
    *BZZZZZZZ* repetition of "placards"

      Finally remembered to make the Scotch broth, though I had to do it in the InstantPot rather than the slow cooker. Not that much of it either, as it wasn't a very big half-shoulder of lamb. But I daresay it'll be all right

        The Ministry of Health have cleared us! We are free to leave the resort ... when the weekend curfew ends at 5 am Monday morning

          The F&B manager has decided that 200 ml bottles of gin are not sufficient for our room mini bar and has brought us a full size bottle instead.

          We also informed him that tomorrow we intend to conduct an 'experiment'. In the way that Italians offer affogato as a desert, with a hard version involving grappa, we have decided we want to try their delicious coconut sorbet with a light and dark rum (two conditions) with and without the espresso (two further conditions). We would have done that today but were too stuffed from lunch.

                    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

                      One does not drink scotch in the Grenadines. I'm only drinking gin because it's a by product of rum (ahem, honest) and I don't like things going to waste...
