* Corona Virus Advice

Dear Members and Visitors,

Just in case you've not seen the latest advice / guidelines regarding the Corona Virus (Covid-19), please visit the Government's website via the link below so you can be as up to date as possible.

The UK Government's Advice/Rules on Corona Virus

Also, the NHS website has a lot of useful information.

NHS Corona Virus Advice

I hope you are all following the rules in self-isolating and social-distancing. Only a fool would think they would never catch it and mix with others only to spread it further. Please do follow the guidelines and the Government's rulings.

Be safe, be healthy and be wise.

Regards
Hal

Not so much Bliss for me today though.. Boo hoo, I've finished the lovely dreamy creamy fridge-cold Guernsey,  I put some in my coffee and I drank the last of what was left of it, and will be getting a pint in every order from now on.

( Hope you enjoyed your holday and your Guernsey milk, Hotton )
Actually tried more of the beer than the milk!

Lucky?

I've always hated  fresh milk and refused to drink the milk we got at school. Of course there were children who liked it, so it was usually easy enough to get rid of it without having to resort to pouring it down the drain. Some of them might also have needed it because they weren't adequately fed at home, but I don't think there were many of those even in a school with a large slum area in its catchment area.

Milk in tea or on cereal or in custard etc is a different matter. But it's definitely one of those things that needs disguising!
I also hated School milk, always managed to give it away to someone who liked it. These days I buy semi skimmed long life milk to have with coffee and cereal. Bliss

I got a bottle is Guernsey Full Fat in my Tesco Click and Collect order..When I got home I just had to drink half the bottle ( pint bottle )  So creamy and cold and good.  Nectar of the Gods !
Just came back after 2 weeks there.
Plenty of milk but not many large growers and exporters of tomatos now. Lots of locals have veg in a box outside for purchase and money in the honesty box.

Well, my mother told us we were lucky, (though they'd had plenty on the farm) and others said we were lucky when Thatcher snatched it.

I know some children had notes from doctors not to have it.

I expect most of us remember. I think we took it for granted then, didn't know we were lucky.

I remember when we used to get it at school, and in the winter we had frozen milk, but those were the days

I appreciate my milkman so much and I'm pleased I have never stopped my deliveries. I'm unable to leave the house at the moment as I need to be with my husband so those bottles of delivered milk are a godsend at the moment.
