I recently bought a Røde microphone for £102. I also bought an acoustic guitar for £50. Peter Freedman, owner of Røde, just bought Kurt Cobain’s Martin acoustic guitar for $6,01,000...a new world record. Something tells me I went wrong somewhere!

Back from the supermarket, where customers were queuing 6 feet apart outside, waiting to be allowed in.

He'd dressed like a robber to do his shopping!
It's said that "In crisis there's opportunity." Normally, I receive 4 Life Insurance brochures annually. In the last week, I've had 10! I’m of coffin dodging age at 66. Do I look ill or are companies targetting my generation? I didn’t even get a free pen!
My cycle ride into town was quiet. Normally, I see about 200 cars and one bus. Today, I saw the bus and only 20 cars. Big gaps on the shelves for pasta, tinned fish, fresh chicken, rice and noodles. People are eating healthier in the crisis.
