We're getting our curfew. From Saturday onwards until the 9th of February we're not allowed outside on the street between 21:00 and 04:30 hours, unless it's for work, when you go to the hospital, you're one of the people who's checking that everyone else stays inside, or you're walking the dog. It's only for two weeks.... but maybe longer. They said that when the cafe's and restaurants had to close three months ago. So we'll have a curfew until Christmas 2022. Probably. Don't come here. Well, you can't anyway, because passenger travel from the UK is forbidden and we're all only allowed to have 1 visitor per day.

Laugh fest. Ghost Recon Breakpoint has gotten a new title update with neigh on no fixes - or nothing we reported anyway, aside from removing an extra E in the name of a vehicle - but with new content so we can play together with Rainbow 6. Ooooh... Yes, it's as bad as it sounds. Worse even. Don't believe what you read on Reddit. And don't buy this game. Or anything from Ubisoft ever again.

Meanwhile in The Netherlands. I think we're at war.

Yes, the younger generations don't seem to like their partying stopped.

They're still at it.
I hope that you have some fire extinguishers there Jord.
Fingers crossed for you.

Until Scotland rejoins them and I get lumped with those blasted Europeans telling me what to do again. What a fuss, they should have just left hard.


I predict that Northern Ireland will leave the United Kingdom first and rejoin the EU by virtue of being part of a united Ireland.

I've always thought it pretty daft that a tiny little part of that island is "ours". When I were a lad, my friend and his family left Ireland to avoid the conflicts at the time. His words (and he's Irish obviously) - "Only the Irish would be stupid enough to start a war against themselves". More likely it's religion, Christians fighting er... Christians.
Read about the 'Plantations of Ireland'. It was a deliberate act of colonisation, and that's never ended well.

Everyone ready for Snowmageddon?
It's okay to have a snowball fight, but only with people from your own household. Because apparently corona can travel on or in snowballs or something.
Not that we can go out tonight to have a snowball fight, as it's still curfew. Which will probably also be extended to well into March even though it only affects 2% of the population.
But hey, with over 20,000 fines (of 95 euros a piece) in just two weeks, it's a very lucrative thing, that curfew.

I think the real issue with the snowball fight here was that it was over 100 people and there was a lot of random hugging going on as well as throwing snowballs.
