Make a point of visiting us weekly!        Tell a friend about us. Perspectives for Uncertain Days - Contents Thoughts for all - a sort of rambling Journal, mapping where we have been in 2020

On Monday 23rd March 2020 the Government required that we are all remain in our own homes except if we had to go out for essentials - food, medicines, essential work, or help those in need. Our starting point will be this Contents Page to identify where we have been and where we are today. As we have gone on it appears more of a somewhat rambling Journal that records the nature of the concerns as this time passes as well as recording Government requirements through this ongoing period of time. Simply click on the page number on the left to go to the Journal articles you want. A number of times we are referring to the requirements coming from the Government and so as a shortcut for those who want to check and read further, we include on this page links to Government documents.
