Astonishing

 

I just received a welcoming e-mail from a bank where I opened an account some years ago.

Eh?

I also seem to have missed a lot of postal mail again. This has happened ever since I moved into this address. On one occasion, a package of mail items for me covering several months was apparently found in the mud somewhere and handed in at Royal Mail who packaged it in plastic and handed it over one day. I’ve also had local postal mail arrive about a year after it was sent etc.

COVID-19 makes me lucky

This morning, I read that there appears to be a genetic connection between dementia risk and severity of COVID-19, here:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/26/research-reveals-gene-role-in-both-dementia-and-severe-covid-19

That makes me very lucky, should I catch it, if it hasn’t already caught me at some point without affecting me.

Dementia most definitely does not run on either side of the family that I come from. Neither does heart disease, by the way.

Cancer does, but as I’ve already survived almost all of those relatives who succumbed to cancer I have little to worry about. I have already lived ten to twenty years longer than they did.

Good.

And you, where do you stand?
