Oh What's Rudolph going to do now?

Our two Great-grandchildren left two carrots, two mince pies and two glasses of sherry, so Rudolph should be fine and, I'm sure Santa will share any leftovers.😄

A very Merry Christmas to everyone, from a frosty, sunny Barnsley. I hope Santa left you all some lovely presents, as you've been good all year. The turkey's in the oven and everything's prepared, so on with the festivities. No matter how many is at your table this year, have a lovely time.🥰

Thanks Avril.

It's a cold,frosty and sunny day here too.

I hope you and Frank have a wonderful day.

We are preparing our Christmas lunch now.

We are making a lunch for Pauline's brother who lives alone and we will drop it off at his home 3 miles away then we will come back home and finish cooking our Christmas lunch then we will sit and watch more DVDs of the Crown.

I just talked to my friend in London again.  One friend is coming round with a bag on her head at 0930?  Don't ask.  At 1100, she is going out with a flask of coffee to meet another single friend, going for a walk and then sitting down drinking the coffee and eating mince pies.  then at 1400 the two gay guys upstairs have invited her for drinkies.  I don't know why I worry about her!  LOL

Neither do I Jean. She sounds to be living it up more than we are.

Merry Christmas to everyone, we are having our main meal later but are currently cooking home made sausage rolls for a buffet lunch with our Daughter in law and younger Grandson.

Our older Grandson has stayed at university in a tier 4 area not wishing to bring any infection home to his family.

Sorry, just one just post.

The independent Office for Budget Responsibility forecasts that over the long term, the UK economy will be 4% smaller with a new trade deal - than it would have been if the UK had stayed in the EU.

Happy, impoverished Christmas to us all.  Donate to your local food bank now.

Now this Wowzz I know😉

Merry Deal-Done-Brexit wowzz 🎅

Sorry that you won't be seeing your older grandson but so pleased that he is being sensible about not bringing any infection home to you especially with your younger grandson's health problems.

It's not a 'proper' dinner without Yorkshire puds. There's always some room on the plate for a few.

He is a very sensible young man so much like his Father was at that age.

The other thing is that he will be 21 on New Year's Eve just spending it with a few good friends that he shares a house with in Sheffield..

Whoooohoo who needs a vaccine.

2. Dark chocolate and grapes 

Institute: North Carolina State University  

Flavanols are a group of chemical compounds found in many different food products, including green tea, muscadine grapes, dark chocolate, blueberries and wine. 

They have been linked with various health benefits, including improved blood circulation in the legs of over-60s and improved mental agility.   

Researchers from the US wanted to see if a sub-group, known as flavan-3-ols, could boost a person's immune system to help fight coronavirus, and focused on the aforementioned Mpro enzyme. 

'Mpro in SARS-CoV-2 is required for the virus to replicate and assemble itself,' said study author Professor De-Yu Xie. 'If we can inhibit or deactivate this protease, the virus will die.' 

The study, published in December in the journal Frontiers in Plant Science, found the flavan-3-ols can bind to Mpro, preventing its function and therefore hindering its ability to replicate and spread.

'Green tea has five tested chemical compounds that bind to different sites in the pocket on Mpro, essentially overwhelming it to inhibit its function,' Xie said. 

'Muscadine grapes contain these inhibitory chemicals in their skins and seeds.'

Writing in their study, the researchers say that considering there is no effective medicine yet for Covid-19, 'these data recommend that these nutraceutical compounds and

It is our first Christmas alone for us too but we have got used to being together after 40 years so we will make the best of it. Family Zoom session this afternoon, should be a riot with those who have not done it before.  We have just opened the presents and people seem to have been worried that we wouldn't have enough food and drink judging be the wine and food goodies that we have recieved, enough wine, chocolates, fancy teas and biscuits to last us until next Christmas.😂😂  

The family came around for Christmas 😅

Thank you.
I’ve had lots of phone calls and a lovely FaceTime chat with my Goddaughter whom I adore. Technology can be a pain but this year has been a godsend.

Have a lovely day. 🎅🏻🎄
