"Where are we going Piglet?" asked Pooh.
"We need to get supplies," said Piglet. "For the Coronavirus"
"Ahh," said Pooh, nodding in understanding. "Things like bread, milk, cough mixture, tissues and cat litter even though we don't have a cat?"
Piglet did a little laugh, and a sort of leap and bit of a cough. "No," said Piglet. "No, those aren't the sort of supplies we need at all! What we need are family sized bags of chocolate buttons, massive toblerone, jelly babies and crunchies and a freezer full of stuffed crust pizzas, and all of the Prosecco and Vodka that we can possibly carry, also Toilet paper. Mountains of it. So that when we get quarantined we won't mind it even slightly. THOSE are supplies."
All of a sudden, Pooh thought that the idea of coronavirus didn't seem quite so bad, and actually, getting quarantined with Piglet and their supplies really didn't sound such a terrible thing after all. "Oh Piglet," said Pooh. "I really do think you are a very wise animal."
As they walked along they spotted Eeyore stood by a stream watching the sticks float by.....
“Hello Eeyore.” Said Pooh, “we’re off to buy supplies to sit out the quarantine, would you like to come?”
“No thank you.” Said Eeyore “I’m just going to stand here, look at the stream and contemplate the Economic impact of a media induced panic that several companies are projecting folding straight out of Brexit. Also the NHS being brought to its knees by a huge panic, and the social impact of people distrusting other humans because its ‘every man for himself’
“Well that’s sad.” Said Pooh “I much prefer getting shitfaced and eating Pizza.”
“The ironic thing.” Smiled Eeyore is that Panic induces the Stress Response, and the first thing the stress response does is switch off the immune system.”
“Huh.” Said Pooh. “why would the media do that.”
“I don’t know.” Said Eeyore “Because the media need to fill air time and nothing fills air time like panic.”
Frankly I’m finding this disgusting. And its not just eBay. This is for 60mls! Three of the online pharmacies that I’ve used for years are now selling hand sanitisers for £200 plus for 1 litre. It’s absolutely disgusting and should be illegal. BULK Buying and extortionate pricing for items that normally post £2 is taking away from actual people that need it the most (elderly, poorly, those with poor immune systems, NHS, doctors, nurses….) I will never buy from any of these companies again that think its ok to prey off the weak, the vulnerable and the fearful. Shame on them. What price increases have you noticed in your part of the world? #shameful #handsanitizer

I have reached out to the incredibly lovely people that set up the go fund me page. And while I’m touched, truly. I cannot and would never accept anything. This situation happened a year ago and I wanted to make the video because it was cathartic for me. Again. I so appreciate all the kindness. Thank you all xxxxx
I recently saw Julia Ormond in the TV series Gold Digger and I was blown away but how absolutely gorgeous she is. She has done something very few people in Hollywood do. She has allowed herself to be her age. And she looks stunning. No botox. No fillers. No lip injections or collagen. No face lifts. By not trying to chase youth she became more beautiful. I remember her back in Legends of the fall, First Knight and Surveillance. But when I saw her in Gold Digger I literally took a breath. Please don’t think that I’m against botox, or fillers. I’ve certainly tried them in the past and still don’t rule them out. But it was just the most refreshing breath of fresh air to see a beautiful women in her 50s being exactly where she is.
