    Things you didn't know before Coronavirus

    Yesterday I was informed that in most of England when spoken good and food don't rhyme but door and poor do. I'm now confused as to whether it's good or food that rhyme with wood and can't comprehend that poor apparently rhymes with pour.

    Has anyone else learned anything vaguely interesting in the last few days?

    If poor rhymes with pour, then is it just being pronounced as "pour"?

    It's not something I've noticed yet to be honest!

    That statement is spot on as far as I am concerned.

    I never realised how much I needed a "man cave" until I set this one up, it will remain in service long after corona virus has left us

    In fact there will be an ongoing update of spec and furniture, equipment as each month passes.

    Virtual pub nights over video chat are cheaper, more convenient and almost as enjoyable as heading down the pub.

    Some Supermarkets won't let you buy more than three tins of beans at once, but you can buy one four pack....
