At long last one of the supermarkets (maybe others will do the same) have seen sense and are allowing the over 70's to have priority to shop for first hour of opening - although in many cases it means 7am till 8am !! Sundays 11am for one hour for those sleepy heads lol They appear to be also reserving home delivery slots for the most vulnerable too which is good to hear. Limits are now coming more into force so there should be a greater share of goods for all. Stay well forumates.

If you are referring to Sainsburys aitch then be aware there are no delivery or click& collect slots available for the coming weeks ... beats me how they can claim to be making provision for us old folk but can't fulfil ... am I missing something?

Not sure from where the original quote originated, but the character played by Donald Sutherland in the film 'Disclosure' uses it in a speech towards the end of the movie.
Unicum arbustum haud alit duos erithacos
