Good News from Ecommerce & Business - 5 October 2020

09 October 2020

Trump's had Corona Virus - is that good news? Spitting Image is back - that is definitely good news.

I am not sure anyone has any idea what is going on any more.  Possibly the best we can hope for is that everyone is going to get even more bored of all the warnings and life is just going to gently move back to normal in a slow almost imperceptible way.  

Meanwhile - there is still lots of good stuff to pass on...
