Gourmet Indian Meals – Delivered via Mail in UK

I’m trying to post a little more frequently, and specifically, I’m trying to post a little more about the future of retail, particularly bearing in mind that recent times have seen this get very squarely dumped on us, with lockdowns happening around the world.

This is the UK section of my website – the information may be of global interest, but the products and services in this one are specifically UK focused.

Today, I’m going to talk about ordering meals online, and specifically Indian meals.

Order Coronavirus (Covid-19) Antibody Test Online – UK

UPDATE – according to some news outlets, the UK authorities have decided to ask private clinics to cease providing antibody testing of this nature.

I’ve not posted anything about the novel coronavirus here in my website at all. The last thing I posted was some sports highlights back in February of this year, which we now know was a time when the Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) virus was spreading quietly, behind the scenes, and largely away from the glare of media attention.

I’ve updated parts of this post below as I have received and taken this antibody test – so this is a first hand account.

To clarify, because there is a lot of “fake news” out there, the test I’ve reviewed below is not a “finger prick” test. It is the IgG Abbott antibody test, which required me to drain several mls of blood into a vial. There is some debate as to whether this capillary blood is different to blood drawn from a vein; but several commentators seem to have this Abbott test confused with “finger prick” tests which were not given approval in April.

The Abbott test and Roche test have been approved for use in England. There has been a pause this week (correct 27 May 2020) as the use of capillary blood has not specifically been approved. There have been clinical tests using blood drawn from veins, which have been approved for use in England, and have a high degree of accuracy.

For more information, see this article in the Financial Times.

Do your own research, and satisfy yourself. If you’d like to take advice from the British Government, that’s fine. They were “guided by science” all the way to the top of the the “most Covid-19 deaths in Europe” chart. A poor show, indeed, given a head start: we watched a slow train-wreck unfold in Spain and Italy in real-time, before doing exactly as they had done, only worse.

Perhaps the Cabinet’s interpretation of scientific data leaves something to be desired?

Before you ask… no, this is not hindsight. There were scientists saying the UK response was wrong at the time. Do your own research.

Seriously Good Cheltenham Festival 2020 Tips

Looking for the best* seriously good** Cheltenham Festival Tips?

I did this last year, and there’s nothing I like more than traditions — in fact, I saw some wit on Twitter the other day opine that

“tradition is just peer pressure from dead people”

Random Twitter Dude

So, on seeing this, as well as laughing really hard, I realised that it was very important to keep up with traditions.

* These very obviously might not be the best tips. There is no way of knowing until later. At which point, sling your arrows in the comments section, at the bottom. Note, I will moderate comments, so if you’re going to criticize, please do so with elaborate, floral, Shakespearean aplomb, or… you’re getting deleted 🙂

** Seriously good is obviously also highly subjective, too.
