Corona virus

   Corona was a pandemic!!!!
I remember when Corona was a good thing.Oh yes, like a virus it was infectious alright.
Once it got hold of you there was no turning back. Growing up in the 60s and 70s, a visit from the Popman was almost as exciting as one from the ice cream van. (But not quite.) Even the milkman had a stock of pure orange juice on his float, another good treat.Yes in those good old days we had orange juice delivered to our door.Two bottles of Dandelion and Burdock, a bottle of Lucozade and a bottle of Cream Soda, please. (You’d even get money back for returning the empties.)

Soft drinks have always been extremely popular with schoolchildren,especially with those of us who grew up in the 60s and 70s.Corona (every bubble passses its fizzical and R Whites ( I´m a secret lemonade drinker) must have helped rot the teeth of many a youngster like myself,with their varieties such as lemon and orangeade,cherryade,cream soda,Ginger beer(my absolute favourite) and Dandelion and Burdock.For those of you who were around in those years,you  will no doubt be protected against the coronavirus,if like me you drank enough corona fizz.All those bottles of of legendary cream soda must have created enough antibodies in our systems.


We,unlike those who had it delivered, had to go to the village store to buy our supplies, but I even remember getting very animated when I saw the Corona lorry stopping to make his delivery.Those were the days!!!!Now wash your hands with clean running water,apply soap,lather,scrub well,including between the fingers for at least 30 seconds,rinse well.
