Looks very 'clean' example, lets hope weather stays past lockdown to enjoy a great top-down experience. Enjoy

I hadn't driven my SD for 2 months until today. Previously, I've always left it in 'normal' mode and been quite happy with its performance etc. What driving I have done, has been in the Ms Clubman S, which isn't exactly a rocket ship, but for the first few minutes this morning, the SD felt as though it had an anchor out the back, so sluggish was its responsiveness. I had to up switch to Sport, then soften off the suspension to Comfort, to make it drive anywhere near decently. Its weird how you adapt to things over a period of time! I guess we may have to adapt many aspects of our lives, coming out of this gawd awful business of C19?

I decided to get more active, to build up my immune system, as we are genetically programmed to fight off viruses. For the last two months, every morning I am doing push-ups and I ride bicycle in the afternoon ~ every second day.

I decided that something positive must come out of this fiasco. So, in my 50’s I am firming-up my body and I am feeling much better. Having said that, I caught a flu and I had high temperature for 3 days. I shook-it off with lots of tea with whisky and honey 🤪

What added to my motivation to exercise, was an interesting research from Germany... apparently no-one in Hamburg died of CV19 alone, all people that passed and were tested as CV-positive, had other pre-existing conditions. CV finished them off. I decided that I am Too young to go into hiding until chems or vaccine becomes available.
