Hello lovelies! It’s Monday 16th March 2020. I hope you are had a lovely weekend and your week is fabulous.
As you can imagine it is pretty quiet on the streets of a rural French town at the best of times, but it is noticably quieter today. Bars, restaurants and non essesntial shops are closed. Our area is famous for Tapestry (you may have heard of Aubusson Tapestry or carpets) and there is a museum in Aubusson, the town next to ours (currently making a series of tapistries from designs by Tolkien from his book the Hobbit). I was supposed to have a meeting there tomorrow to give them some more stock, but they are closed to visiters so I will go just before they reopen (at least 2 weeks but could be longer).
We have had our first cancellation for B&B rooms in June.
In the UK things are still confused. My mother has dementia and is in a specialist retirement home. So far they don’t seem to have restricted visits. She needs a scan today (to rule out a bloodclot). My brother is trying to get advice as whether it is okay to take her to the appointment (which is most risky? Taking her to a hospital at this point, or not getting the scan?). For her sake and that of the other residents in the home we want to minimise the risks
The Steem stalemate continues but with more interference from Sun. The worry is that this will change our blockchain and devalue the brand further. Perhaps the time to Fork out of here is coming...
I hope you guys are well.
Here are somethings I made last night
What plans have you got for today? And for the weekend?
Peace and love to you all. Steem on!

DO NOT use steemit.com as a front end.
It is currently hostile to the blockchain, and the only reliable people there have resigned in protest at Sun’s move.
My preference is SteemPeak but I also use esteem on my mobile.
