You could be forgiven if you thought the Aquatic Centre had been bombed or had suffered a fire or something the other day but no, it was just the rusted out facade that had suddenly decided to give way and crash to the ground. Luckily nobody was injured in the crash even though it was at the entrance to the facility. Built in 1974, the Aquatic Centre is 48 years old now and clearly showing its age. Of course being next to the ocean doesn't help with all the wind and salty air. Like all forces of Nature, mold, mildew, and rust never sleeps.

Almost two years to the day it was first officially acknowledged as a world wide pandemic, governments everywhere are now announcing COVID has ended. Maybe not the disease itself but certainly all the masking, vaccine passports, and social distancing. The people couldn't stand the inconveniences any longer, no matter how minor they were or how effective they were at keeping the annual flu/cold season at bay. Furthermore they wanted to get back to travelling and they wanted that to be free of testing as well, even though travel is what caused the disease to spread so rapidly around the world in the first place. What will we do if a biological threat of something much more lethal than COVID appears, either natural or man made?
