Have you got some ‘CCTV’ stickers to put discretely near the sanitiser? Not the actual gear, just some stickers.
Obviously people flog stuff that isnt nailed down these days. I swear there is so much gorilla tape around the dispensers these days in the supermarket I go to!

Some sensible comments from Morrison today where we aren’t aiming for elimination but management. If elimination occurred as a by product then that’s just a bonus.

That maybe ScoMo's goal, but it would seem that most of the Premiers are after elimination.

Separately from the dispensers? Or discreetly, i.e. covertly?

I can't see how either would be useful. If they're too far away then would they be read?
If they can't be seen then they're otiose.

Gorilla tape to prevent a guerilla attack? 🦍

Discreetly doesn't mean covertly, does it? Put or affixed in a discrete manner (without a show of ostentation, perhaps) and placed separate from the dispensers, else the sticker will disappear along with the dispenser 🙂

Perhaps we can both take the Humpty Dumpty defence:

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."

Clearly you read much cleverer books than I do! 😂

Unsurprisingly the performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat we were due to see in July in the London West End has now been postponed by 1 year, so our booking is carried forward to the same day next year.

Slowly working our way through the Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals..... last one we saw was Jesus Christ Superstar. Now that was an odd show.

Although I have never seen the performance, wasn’t it doing the circuit in the 1970s?

I love that one! I was a teenager back then. Marcia Hines and a very cute Jesus. Well I think it was Marcia but the Jesus guy was cute. I've had too much alcohol, I think. Marcia was later. And I was sweet 16. Doing my last year at school. I remember it well.

  • Trevor White (Jesus)
  • Jon English (Judas)
  • Michele Fawdon (Mary Magdalene) 1972–73.
  • Marcia Hines (Mary Magdalene) 1973–74.
  • Arthur Dignam (Pontius Pilate) 1972–73.
  • Robin Ramsay (Pontius Pilate)
  • Joseph Dicker (King Herod) Sydney 1972.
  • Reg Livermore (King Herod) Sydney 1973.
