It has been many years in Coventry because of being a carer and the immediate family are now at peace, and gone to their Maker, so to speak. Thankfully not my son, who is now grown up and doing well.
The Pandemic has brought us huge reminders, that businesses can close, and necessities can run out, or supply chains be interrupted, and we may need to slow down to adapt - perhaps change our phones and laptops less often (well international inflationary pressures mean the hip pocket has been massively affected). The pandemic has taught us to cherish what we have - our dear friends, our pets, our families, our jobs, and businesses that are fighting to stay open to serve us. We have learned to be more patient. It's not all about what we own!
Also during the pandemic - it has been exciting to witness the upsurge in interest across the globe in quality bicycles, E Bikes, electric skateboards and scooters - to keep people mobile without having to get in cars or on to buses and trains, thereby avoiding the sharing of germs on public transport. Ownerless carshare and taxi pooling have really taken off.
After the Pandemic, more people will continue to work from home which will be a boon for many who can now leave cities and live closer to families, more remotely or in regional towns. More of us working from home will see the necessity of expanding our reliance on domestic renewables, rather than continuing to prop up CO2 polluters, which the bigger companies tend to lean towards!
The world will be forced to make practical changes. This site is changing and adapting too.
