Talking about swimming, any swimmers here, back when young competing for the nationals?

To Paul, anything I can help please let me know. I would just stay there for Christmas, at least weather and food is better. We already bought our travel back home for Christmas through BA not other low cost company as in the past. Sick and tired of being home 24/7, need a break away from U.K. and work!!! Will die if travel is forbidden....

There's a ferry service between Bilbao/Santander and Portsmouth if you really need it.
(And, yes, it's still there even if you don't.)

Shameless plug...

The Barbados Welcome Stamp program has been quite popular.

Barbados is managing the CV19 thing quite well. It helps that we're a small sovereign nation whose population actually understands that testing, social distancing, and wearing masks just Makes SenseTM.

What idiocy. The cruise prep should have included a 2 week quarantine, in addition to the testing if they were going to claim a risk-free "bubble."
That this would discourage fools from signing up is really the aim. This boat should never have boarded passengers.
