Having just written about reliability, I am mortified to discover that my e-mail (kevin@kevinwoodauthor) isn’t working. My apologies to anyone who has e-mailed me and not received a response. I will let people know when it is fixed. Hopefully my service provider is still doing the support thing during lockdown.
Whereas I, on the other hand, have been putting up a bat box:
We have three bird boxes and an insect house, all of which are empty. I’m not sure why this is. It doesn’t appear to be location, as last year sparrows built a nest right next to the sparrow box that we had bought for them. Persuading them to move their nest a few inches proved impossible. The box remained untenanted.
Still, we have high hopes for the bat box (which was made by the wonderful people at the Stepping Stones Project in Skipton), and we’ve carefully followed all the advice on where it should be sited.
There have been many tragic stories as a result of Coronavirus and the lockdown. People who have lost loved ones, families which have been broken, people who have died doing their job at the NHS. If you have been affected, then you have my sincere condolences.
Yet one of the tragedies is still to play out. It has been suggested that a possible origin of the Coronavirus is bats in China. Sadly, certain people have drawn a somewhat wobbly line from A to B and decided to go on a bat hunt. It seems that these animals will become collateral damage of the pandemic.
A good reason to put up a bat box, if ever there was.
The conspiracy theories of people like David Icke (former footballer and sports presenter, who has had his social media accounts deleted for spreading harmful disinformation) are, at least, somewhat easier to stomach. After all, you can have a good laugh and feel suitably superior to those who believe them. 5G towers and covert operations gone wrong? Very amusing. Unless the exposure of the conspiracy theories is, itself, a counter-intelligence operation on the part of the lizard people known as the Archons.
Imagine the scene in the Archon’s secret bunker (located beneath Buckingham Palace, if you believe everything you read):
“How does that David Icke fellow keep uncovering one’s plots?”
“He was once an operative of the Archons. It is unfortunate, Supreme Archon, that he was able to escape prior to re-education.”
“Unfortunate? One is appalled by the incompetence!”
“Yes, Supreme Archon. The effects have been devastating. Revealing the British Monarchy as being rulers of the lizard race has been particularly awkward.”
“Awkward is too mild a word. One finds it incredible that the public is prepared to believe such things.”
“The analysis suggests that one’s difficulty with the personal pronoun is unhelpful in this respect.”
“One finds that difficult to believe.”
“Indeed. However, this still leaves the problem created by David Icke.”
“Is it possible to discredit him?”
“He appears quite capable in that regard himself – yet it only takes a few people to give him credence in order to disrupt the Supreme Plan.”
“Then use that American asset. One has a 5G tower nearby. Use it to reprogram his brain. Again. As soon as he says something, everyone knows it must be false.”
“An excellent idea, Supreme Archon. Initiating 5G mind control to reprogram the American asset’s brain now…”
