Welcome to the weekly round up with posts you might have missed on Smorgasbord.
I hope that you are all well and thanks for dropping in today. I am taking full advantage of the sunshine this weekend as the nights are drawing in and the temperatures are already dropping. Still grateful for the quick blast and a good book.
As in most places our infections are on the rise which in not unexpected after the restrictions were lifted. Although here in Ireland the government has been very cautious about moving through the various stages. There are still clusters in the major cities such as Dublin and Cork. We are grateful for our rural location and without the influx of visitors this summer (despite the devastating effect on small businesses) we have been relatively free of infections. All we can do is continue to be careful and stay positive.
I hope the posts this week will have kept your spirits up and this week William Price King, Carol Taylor and Silvia Todesco provided us with great jazz entertainment and wonderful recipes to ensure we don’t waste away in isolation.
Colin Guest joined us last Sunday to share his life changing moment which resulted in him meeting his lovely wife and finding great happiness.
My thanks to you for all your support during the week….
