Two months ago, he was simply Capt Tom Moore.

When his fundraising exploits inspired the nation, he was made an honorary colonel to mark his 100th birthday.

And now, the war veteran whose sponsored walks in his garden raised £33m for NHS charities, is to receive a knighthood  

The prime minister recommended the Bedfordshire pensioner for the honour, which will be formally announced on Wednesday.

Pretty low bar, though, isn't it? All due respect to Major (or is it Colonel?) Tom, but this is just BoJo trying to ride on his coattails.

I would like to actually know though where this money raised for the NHS goes,does it go into a pot,does it get sucked up by bureaucracy etc.

Would be nice if a lot of it actually went to the people who work for the NHS because let`s face it they need money more than applause.

Apparently Trump does actually wear a mask when he's away from TV cameras.

 

What a plonker.

Sunday flummox...my husband just got a call from from the Gesundheitsamt to say that his recent corona test (3 weeks ago) is positive. Strange, as he has also had written confirmation that the test was negative.  The caller went away to double check and phoned back...oh, it might be negative then!  Better get rechecked to make sure.   
 

Seems like the testing system isn’t working so well. This was just a current test, not an antibody test.  An antibody test would have been most useful for him as person working in a high risk area.
