So Leicester have had lockdown rules tightened. No one is allowed in or out. Good luck with that. Their pubs and hairdressers etc will not reopen for at least an extra 2 weeks after other areas. Good luck with that too. Leicester residents are bound to travel a few miles if they are desperate to visit a pub. Just how bad have Leicester folk been during lockdown? The locals in Worcester have been pretty bad although perhaps my perception is flawed due to being surrounded by the muppets. Someone who lives round the corner was telling me how quiet their lockdown had been.

I have suspected all along that the local pub was serving drinks. We have been told that they never actually closed! There have been lock-ins every night. Surely they would not have had enough stock to serve customers for over 3 months. Again, just how bad have they been in Leicester??

Alexander Zverev was one of the players at the Adria Exhibition where several people tested positive for Covid-19. He vowed to self isolate for 14 days Yet just a few days later he was filmed at a party at the Anjuna Private Club. He tried to delete the evidence from his Instagram account but Ben Rothenberg tweeted the video.

I traded a couple of tennis matches today from the Tipsport Elite Trophy in the Czech Republic. My first trades for a couple of weeks. First up was Alexandrova v Kr Pliskova. Alexandrova started as slight favourite but doesn’t have a great record on clay against main tour players. Pliskova had beaten her earlier this month, also on clay. I had a part lay on Alexandrova near the start of the match and Pliskova took the set 6-0 which was nice! I hedged at 4-0. In the second set I laid Pliskova when she took the first break of serve. Alexandrova took the set. Pliskova took the match with the match tie break 3rd set.

I missed the start of the Kvitova v Vondrousova match. Vondrousova hasn’t had great results this year after wrist surgery. She took the first break of serve which is when I first looked at the match. I couldn’t find a live stream. Backed Kvitova at 1.81 and 1.91. She broke back for 3-3. She held for 4-3 and was 0-40 on Vondrousova’s next service game. I hedged which proved to be a good move as Vondrousova held serve and then broke the Kvitova serve and went on to take the set. Kvitova must have been injured as her serve fell apart and she didn’t hold once in set two.

Stay safe.

I have managed to avoid the news until the evening news just came on. Some idiot Youtuber held a meet and greet in Birmingham. The interviewer asked him if it was a wise thing to do in the middle of a global pandemic. He said he stood by what he had done and was proud of what he had achieved. Does the virus eat bloody brain cells??


Leicester is perhaps going to have to keep the current lockdown rules for an extra 2 weeks due to a spike in cases. They have organised a pop up testing centre and they are finding a lot more cases. According to some locals there have been a lot of public gatherings and parties in the city.

I know in Worcester the hospital has had no new cases in the last 2 weeks. I messaged Sue at work this morning and they have just 7 patients on a ward with 22 beds.

California, Texas and Florida have lost control of the pandemic. The people there seem to be ignoring the whole thing. Trump has been saying that it’s nothing to worry about. In a country where they all have guns, how is Trump still around? I bet he is avoiding grassy knolls (whatever a grassy knoll is).

We have had a couple of birds of prey above the street. I think one of them is the buzzard that I have seen in the local woods a few times. I didn’t see the other bird for more than a couple of seconds so I’m not sure what it was. It seems odd that they are flying around together. Hopefully together they can pick off a few of the idiot kids round here.

I’ve had a fairly chilled out day. Sue had left a shopping list so I got that done at lunchtime. Her Anniversary card turned up this morning. Just a day late. I’ll keep it for next year!

I watched “Freaks” on Netflix this afternoon. It’s worth watching if you are running out of things to watch. I have also “discovered” 90 day Fiance on TLC. I’ve been binge watching that in the last 2 days. I mean it’s shite but you can’t stop watching.

The more I research SEO the more I learn. I am pretty happy with the site which is ranking well for the main two search terms. One thing I don’t understand is why a football and tipster site is ranking number 1 in one of those terms. If you make the same search on Bing they are nowhere to be seen yet Google loves them! When you visit the page they even have a full page popup. Google HATE those! Fair play to the guys at as they obviously know their stuff. They don’t even have the search term anywhere on the page! I’m trying to ignore it. I’m failing but I am trying. I’m very happy for them. Honestly….

Chinese for supper. Stay safe.
