 Roobarb, you were my actual inspiration to put one on and Gadget - you and I had been discussing the really unimportant and rather shallow subject about our hair!! Hence it's the fault of you 2!

This is great

In Denmark they are selling 1 hand sanitizer for 40kr or 2 for 1000kr.

Excellent idea.

Well today Morris sides all over the world took part in the #lonemorrisfestival so maybe that could supply some of the music and dancing. Here's a sample

Not quite sticking to thread but my husband asked for a "Hobgoblin" with his cup of tea today! We are losing the plot already. He meant a Hobnob biscuit of course.

Is the party continuing today please? I have just found a fancy tin of Lobster Bisque soup at the back of my cupboard and I'm  too embarrassed to tell you the expiry date.

I'd like "It's going to be a long lonely summer" but I don't remember who sang it.

Enjoying the rattle on here folks.

Ankerdine - I don't see why the party can't continue.  I think it should go on for the length of the outbreak (not outbread as I typed first).  Lobster bisque soup sounds good and I don't think that would go off if it's in a tin.

Wasn't it 'A long and lonely Christmas without you'?  That was by Dana.  Never mind, we'll change it.  I'm sure she won't mind.

Let's go the "whole hog" and have a three course meal from yesteryear

Prawn Cocktail (Soup in a basket is off)
Smorgasbord(Fill in your own details)
Black Forest Gateau(Compulsory)

Washed down with copious quantities of Blue Nun

Mentioned in Michel Roux's obit as "boring food" eaten by Britons which the Roux brothers replaced with more adventurous dishes. Prawn cocktail and Black Forest Gateau were exotic to me.

Reminiscent of Bernie Inns with a main course of steak a la 1970's.
A smorgasbord contained all the food needed - appetisers, starters, mains and puds. There was one of our almost local pubs which did a smorgasbord - wow what a spread. It was almost more than an avid panic buyer could buy.

I could bring homemade vegetable soup. A parsnip, lingering too long in the fridge, a withered leek, an out of date packet of barley, retrieved from the food recycling caddy. Used teabags + assorted leftovers in the caddy-liner will add a "je ne sais quois" to the taste. I'll be generous and not sample any myself.  ;D
What I won't share are tins of fish (supermarket brand) or my sole packet of Warburton's Thins; they are mine, all mine.
I'm bringing Simon and Garfunkel LPs. We can listen to 2 songs, "I am a Rock" and "Old Friends".

                            I am a Rock 
"I am alone
Gazing from my window to the street below"
  ...

"I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate"
 ...

"I have my books
And my poetry to protect me.
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb,
I touch no one and no one touches me"
"I am a rock.
 I am an island"

                              "Old Friends" or "Bookends"

 "Old friends
  Sat on their park bench
  Like bookends"

Simon Armitage, Poet Laureate, has just read a poem for the times we're in on Radio 4 at the end of "P.M."
