Is everybody getting these emails? Have a bunch of female (and/or male) entrepreneurs seen a business opportunity provided by Covid19, with marketing aimed at guys fed up with lockdown, horny enough to risk accepting one or more "in the flesh" encounters? Or is this scam orchestrated by some international crime gang with even darker intentions? Whatever it is, I deleted the emails immediately but kind of wish I'd kept them, imagining that somewhere in a dingy room a group of people are at this very moment sitting at their laptops or iPhones trying to think of more effective phrases to convey their intentions. Literature, you know.

My second cataract op (right eye this time) is scheduled for the 22nd of February. I hope this one is more impressive than the previous one. Will report in due course.

The problem is that the available information, whether medical or governmental, is not only inconsistent but in dispute among themselves. Some scientific experts in the UK say it's no problem to extend the gap between shots whereas some EU experts say it's definitely a problem, potentially a serious problem. If you read the whole of the above BBC article you'll see. Whose expertise does one trust? There are also commercial factors involved about the availability and distribution of the Pfizer and the Astra Zeneca vaccines and that's one more reason to wonder what the actual facts are, medical and otherwise. Is the time lapse between first and second jabs of either vaccine truly significant in giving you immunity and/or preventing others from being infected by you? There are controversial opinions about this among the Experts. So, what does being "well informed" mean?
