Well EE has posed the question about what we are doing in lockdown. The simple answer is working thats what. I have some long term health issues and there were concerns about my being in the office. I left the city on March 9th mid afternoon. I have worked in the city since 1977 and seen many things from bombing campaigns and other health scares such as SARS. I felt sad walking down a deserted Moorgate that afternoon. My employer sent a full working set up to home the next day and back to work I went. The day is a standard working day but now on SKYPE video calls etc. Its busy. Mrs Mott works at not just any supermarket and is very much in the frontline each day serving the public. Of course i have a little spare time not slaving over a hot keyboard preparing the next MOTCO until EE came up with his new wizard wheeze and decided to leave the steam age and make a quantum leap into the digital age. Neil Armstrong may have made a giant leap into the unknown but its not as big as the one EE is taking now,
One question though. Does running out of Branston constitute a crisis.
Yours aye
Motty

  1. PS, Neil Armstrong is my hero. Of course a tweed spacesuit would have taken it to a new level. As a 8 year boy watching on a black and white tv I just couldn’t get enough of all the Apollo stuff. My (adult) children say that I still have a child like excitement when watching old programmes and talking about the moon. I guess I do and don’t apologise for it. Me thinks we are all a bit to blase about the achievement of the task given the time in history. All young guns with an average age of 24 ish who made it happen. That is something to think about in the Instagram age.
