Macaque monkeys are very intelligent----have probably set up their own test and trace system!!

Go on, say it. Say his first name and last name.

Woww, thanks for that.
Must say, I was a bit sceptical about this story, even doubted he was/is 92 ... looking good for his age though.

Not sure where to post this.
Speech has just finished.
Given by PM Modi (a negative here) but part of of the US-summit---USISPF (which is OK to post about here on TIO?)

I Thought it was a brilliant speech-----"Local with Global".
