All doom and gloom
The main topic of conversation today was rather sombre. You try and block it out as much as you can but eventually, no matter how painful it is, a difficult topic has to be assessed, examined, dissected, weighed.
We considered the pros (found none) and cons (there were many). We tried to formulate plans, to be prepared for the future, to show some level of preparation in the face of the imminent devastation.
Today we faced the music, we bit the bullet, we took the bull by the horns. There was no longer any possibility of avoiding the topic: Pepe's Nikon Coolscan photographic slides scanner is dead.
We also discussed Sars-CoV-2 (the virus) and Covid-19 (the disease) for light comic relief.
