Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx
People were devo for them, but Tom wants everyone to know that they’ll be OK:
We are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one day at a time… Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball.
The League of Their Own reference has fully done us in. Feel better very soon, Tom and Rita!
Ben Foden’s wife Jackie has been accused of racism after sharing some controversial views about China and the coronavirus outbreak.
Posting on her Instagram Story, Jackie accused the Chinese government of purposely putting Americans in danger as a result of the US government owing them money.
“Clean your sh*t up China,” she wrote. When a follower responded telling her that this view was racist, said: “How is this racist? How is it fair??”
We won’t go too much into the conspiracy theory stuff she said next, but suffice it to say she believes that it’s all just “a little too convenient”, and is instructing anyone who thinks she’s being racist to ‘get f**ked’. Riiight.
Ben and Jackie married last October after a few months of dating, and announced last month that they are expecting their first child. Hoo boy.

On Friday, February 14, the day we Americans set aside for love, I challenge every Christian who reads this to stop at 7 am western time, for just 15 minutes to cry out to God to heal our land of the hatred, greed, and selfishness that have become so prevalent in our country. Make up your mind and promise God that you will repent of any part you have had in perpetuating these things. For He has said “If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves in prayer and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and heal their land. (2 Chron. 7:14)”. I love you with the love of the Lord! Happy Valentines Day! 💝
Meanwhile, disco legend Gloria Gaynor has provided her own hand-washing technique for us all to follow.
The 70-year-old singer is on TikTok (because of course she is) and posted a video of herself lip-syncing to her song I Will Survive while washing her hands.
“It only takes 20 seconds to ‘SURVIVE’!” she wrote.
Absolutely right Gloria. Wash yo hands, people.
The best celebrity throwback photos of the week.
SMG, you beauty. To celebrate her husband Freddie Prinze Jr’s 44th birthday this week, the Buffy actress posted this excellent photo of him brooding away in the ’90s. The tiny chain! The bare chest! The perfect lock of hair on his forehead! They simply must get that framed.
