        With all the depressing virus stuff happening you need to find ways to stay positive. Having a good laugh helps so here are some videos to tickle your funny bone.

        From Britain: The Two Ronnies – Swedish Made Simple

        From the U.S.: Carol Burnett – No Frills Airline

        From Canada: Wayne & Shuster – Shakespearean Baseball and Scruffi & Schmutz

        Another part of feeling well is exercise – which you’ll need if you watch too many videos like the above. While it’s not a comedy your family is bound to laugh if you try the dance moves. 🙂

        Thanks for that.  The Wayne & Shuster one will not play, it says “Video unavailable”, but if their treatment of Shakespeare is anything like their audio sketch “Rinse the blood off my toga”, which is a sendup of Julius Caesar, it would be hilarious.  Two of my favourite bits from that sketch:

        “My name is Mark Anthony.  I just made a speech, I said “Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears.”  “Yeah?  Whatcha got in that sack?”  “EARS !!”

        “Gimme a martinus”  “You mean martini” “If I want two, I’ll ask for them”

        Go to You’ll see a link to the video bottom/left. It’s a .ASX file so I right-clicked on the link, chose Open Link in New Tab (I use Firefox) then used VLC to open it:


        Hope this helps…

        Thanks Rick, that worked.  It’s good to get away from the bits and bytes occasionally.

        Staying at home is a good thing to do in these weird times but it can get depressing. Recently I rediscovered some videos about magic to make smiles – or at least groans.

        When staying at home we have to stock up (but not hoard) on essentials like toilet paper. I hope you don’t have issues like this shopper:

        Taking care of our pets can be an issue during lockdowns. With all the extra time you can train them to be a bit safer.

        When a Scottish sports announcer is stuck at home…

        I gather this guy is a TV sports commentator for rugby and golf, but with no sports being played during the lockdown he’s taken to keeping in shape with his dogs:
