Never mind the number of tickets sold - they could always charge a bit more to make up for it.

This is what you'd miss. Imagine being in front of such adoring fans... you'd come to believe you could conquer the world.

Being in a crowd like that is amazing... I so miss the chance of seeing some of the “biggies”, and I’d like my son to know the sheer damn fun of it too. Just that photo Bristol is very evocative of fun summer nights...and we will know them again

The upsides of Coronavirus? I hope that Donald Trump loses the election. It'll be the best perspective Corona has to offer to all of us.

Not on the stage though
I think if I had an adoring crowd like that in front of me I'd soon be strutting

So here we are on October 10th and I've not seen one mosquito this year nor had a mysterious bite/itch that I would have attributed to one.

They must all have been social distancing.

I have 3 mozzie bites on my lower arm and they are driving me crazy. I’ve used anti histamines, anti histamine cream and hydrocortisone cream...but it is still read and swollen and itching like crazy. I’m a mozzie/bug magnet.

Try using vicks (or generic brand) - I've found that works sometimes - or tiger balm can do the trick (or that good old standby, calamine lotion)

I wonder if this is an NB thing Bristol? I hadn't thought about it but I haven't had any bites, that I can recall, this year either. I've worked a lot more outside in the garden too.

I'm not sure if I would weigh up the options as World Pandemic -v - Mozzie bites...but we may as well take the positives where we find them

I have some sort of gel that I bought in the US about 15 years ago (or more)...works much better than the stuff I’ve bought recently . I don’t believe in ‘sell by’ /‘use by’ dates...I think it’s all a big con to make you spend more.

If the milk had gone off, Mum used to make cream cheese with it. I used to love it
