Friday Fun (a COVID-19 version!)

I’ve been contemplating book titles with Corona in the title. While I am sure you can find similar posts or challenges on Twitter and Facebook, I’ve taken the names of books that my Book-Club (puuklapi) have read over the past few years, replacing a key word with, yep you guessed it – CORONA! A fun synopsis followed by original title and author in brackets.

Here goes:
“Boy Swallows Corona”, loosely based on real life, the author transports us to suburban Brisbane where we follow Eli Bell and his family as they do battle with the Corona virus that rips them apart. Can they be a whole family again? (“Boy Swallows Universe”, Trent Dalton).

“Colorless Tsukuri Tazaki and his years of Corona”, Tsukuri is plunged into darkness and journeys literally and physically to find out the truth behind Corona. “Norwegian Corona”, the story of a smitten student and the Corona song that became an anthem for his life. (“Colorless Tsukuri Tazaki and his years of Pilgrimage”, “Norwegian Wood” by Haruki Murakami).

“Love in the time of Corona”, the story of lovers separated by time and distance, all with the serach for a Corona cure in the background. (“Love in the time of cholera” by Gabriel García Márquez).

“Eleanor Oliphant is Corona Fine”, I’ll admit, this was a little bit tricky and it’s a clumsy title. Eleanor is a scarred and determined young woman, who after falling for ‘The One’, makes it her mission to win him over. Obstacles range from the Corona virus to a past that reveals itself to both the main character and the reader at the same time. (“Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine” by Gail Honeyman).

“The Corona”, family drama, family secrets, and nothing is what it seems when the Corona hits a small town in rural outback Australia. (“The Dry” by Jane Harper).

“Corona – They Know Not What They Do” translated from the Finnish title “Korona He eivät tiedä mitä tekevät”. Set in a back drop of University politics, cross-cultural relationships and modern life, this satire explores life in the ‘post corona new normal’. (“He eivät tiedä mitä tekevät” “They Know Not What They Do” by Jussi Valtonen).

“Corona Sunday” Jane Fairchild’s life is changed forever after contracting Corona on her one day off. A story of tales told, owned and inherited. (“Mothering Sunday” by Graham Swift)

“When Corona was a Rabbit” explores the role of Elly’s childhood pet rabbit from the beginning of the Corona virus to 40 years in the future. (“When God was a Rabbit” by Sarah Winman).

“The Corona” A young boy is captivated by an early rendition of the Corona virus. After losing his mother in a tragic accident, he steals the painting which goes on to have a tumultuous affect on his formative teen years. (“The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt).

Have you read any of these? Any other corona titles that you can think of? I am certain that I will come back with a part two, quite possibly a part three 😊!


What started as a tongue in check response by the Dutch to the Twitter-in-Chiefs inauguration speech and his ‘America first’ statement was quickly picked up by late night comedy shows around Europe. The Germans implored the rest of Europe to get in the act and put forward their own requests to be second. That first web page was laid out like the EU flag – with spots for all the European countries.

In less than a week the movement has spread across the globe, with entries from African nations and Australia. At the time of writing there are no entries from south America…. yet!

Warning: lots of satire here, and walls, and huge things, great things, orange things and countries all poking fun at themselves 🙂

Which is your favourite?!



My hidden talent # 02


You may recall one of my first posts of 2017 was a tribute to the akismet spam filter and the lovely comment that was spammed. Since then I’ve been saving the comments that the filter so generously sends to the spam folder and once again it’s sharing time.

I’m beginning to notice a bit of theme here and I think I can incorporate the wishes of my random commentators into future postings.

It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
I have learn this post and if I may just I desire to
recommend you few fascinating things or suggestions.

Apparently here I can be master and student at the same time, happily in the future perhaps.

Perhaps you can write subsequent articles
relating to this article. I wish to learn more things about it!

Again with the teacher – perhaps I have missed my calling…

I’m told it was the bear.

My worst fear – the bear went feral and attacked the dog… organ transplant has so far been unsuccessful and the dog hangs on by a thread…

Spam can be so complimentary!

Did you read the daily post from September 25th? The article itself had good tips about dealing with comments and spammers, while the comments that followed also had real-life examples of how other bloggers react and interact with their spammers. Personally, I find the spam comments amusing – there are always some interesting ‘comments’ that look like they are complimentary, but are in fact totally bogus. Here is the latest collection:

I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

Truer words have never been spoken, I just didn’t expect to read them in connection with my ‘copyright’ page!

We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your website offered us with valuable info to work on. You’ve done an impressive job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

I know lots of people scour the web looking for information, I’m just not sure how much useful information there is on a ‘copyright’ page. Especially for those generous souls that volunteer.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin.

We all know that SEO is key to being found. I particularly like the shopping-channel-style comment  ‘…wait there’s even more’.

I visited several sites except the audio quality for audio songs cujrrent at this website is genuinely wonderful.

‘Home and good manners’ is not a place for genuinely wonderful audio quality, thanks for visiting anyway!

I am extremely inspired together with your writing talents as neatly as with the layout iin your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to peer a nice weblog like this one these days..

Compliments like this will take you far, it’s just a shame linked me back to a 404 error!

Article writing is also a fun, if you know afterward you can write if not it is complicated to write.

Is a fun what? Hobby, job? Yes, sometimes it’s not so easy to write.

Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

I wish I could say the feeling was mutual as I quite like your enthusiasm. However this is a family friendly blog and I don’t think that your adult entertainment and selection of toys are really what I want to share here. Good luck with your future endeavours.

There is clearly a large amount to recognize about this. I think you made various first-class points in features also.

Indeed. I’m just not exactly sure what you are referring to here. A little more detail please.

Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!

They do say great minds think alike! However, I think you should join your friends in the adult entertainment industry that commented earlier. Let me introduce you. Oops, sorry I’ve deleted both your email addresses already. Never mind, I’m sure you’ll find each other soon enough.

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

Hmm, on the surface this looked like a legitimate request. Then I hovered over the link… It took a while to forget that particular image.

Spot on with this write-up, I actually think this site needs a great deal more attention. I�ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the advice!

You’re welcome. I’m just not sure what I did here.

My spam comments are now nil, I wonder how long before a new comment filters through 🙂

PS: I always spell check before hitting the publish button, usually two or three times, just to be sure. Today I’m letting all those little errors slide through. It just feels so very wrong.
