IN THE ABSENCE OF AN ANTIVIRAL INOCULATION, AUSTRALIANS have taken to hoarding toilet tissue to ward off the coronavirus. I have been struggling to make the connection, so I decided to do a bit of research. It turns out this is not the first time in history that a link has been made between killer germs and the availability of tissues. We all know the old children’s nursery rhyme Ring a-ring o' roses,, A pocketful of posies. A-tishoo! A-tishoo! We all fall down! Many historians say that the lyrics in this ditty allude to the Great Plague of 1666 - the deadly disease that swept across Europe and killed many millions of people. “Ring o’ roses” refers to a red circular rash common in some forms of the plague; “posies” were the different flowers and herbs people carried to ward off disease; “a-tishoo” and falling down mimic sneezing and eventually dying from the disease. Disposable paper tissues got their name from this description of a sneeze. The history of using paper for toilet hygiene goes back even further. The Chinese began mass producing toilet paper in the 14th century. China is now the largest manufacturer of tissues, toilet tissues and disposable medical masks for the global market. Their biggest producers are located in Hubei Province – whose capital, Wuhan, is now infamous as the original source of the coronavirus. Are you starting to see some connections? Maybe there is some logic behind the bulk buying after all. As the panic continues, there are a few steps you can take to prepare. Firstly, carefully check the manufacturer details for any masks, tissues or toilet paper you purchase. If it says the Hubei Province I would give it a wide berth. Secondly, as supplies dry up, think about alternatives. I know we all love our Sorbent – it has been a favourite downunder for over 60 years. But before modern commercial toilet paper was perfected, and well before the recycling and sustainability practices we now adopt, people used old newspapers and cheap editions of paperbacks for cleansing. School kids in the 70’s even created their own version of the famous Sorbent toilet tissue advertising jingle, which eerily might have predicted the current state of affairs. What’s the gentlest tissue, In the bathroom you can issue? New-new-new-newspaper. It may be irritating, But you can read it while you’re waiting. Newspaper from your favourite store. Now, you can’t do that with a digital subscription! I’ve got a few dud books in my study, along with the weekend edition of the Australian, that I could keep handy for an emergency. Check for your own emergency supplies, but please, the Byron Bazaar is not suitable, no matter how desperate or chilled you may be! Tony, Byron Bazaar
This week's recommendation
ALBUM TITLE: Hotspot ARTIST: Pet Shop Boys RELEASED: Jan 2020 GENRE: EDM, Synth-Pop, New Wave BIO: The Pet Shop Boys' career took off in 1981. The
duo's hits include West End Girls; Go West and the cover of the classic Always on My Mind. Forever stylish and experimental, this is their 14th album. It was created in the progressive city of Berlin.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Not so familiar with the PSB? Think
80's synth-pop classics like Tainted Love, with New Order's punk dance Blue Monday and Madonna's Vogue. Throw in some 2020 dance-friendly produced tracks with some catchy lyrics and you’ll get the vibe.
WHAT WE LIKE: The melting pot of synth-pop beats and meaningful lyrics brings emotion and energy together, along with a few slower moments. The pioneering PSB music is fresh and forever pushing boundaries after 39 years in the game. Having a party and turning up the music never goes out of fashion and on the disco fused Monkey business that is sung true "Bring me margaritas / Champagne and red wine / We're gonna have a party / Where we all cross the line". On the final track, Mendelssohn's Wedding March (yeah, that classical piece brides traditionally walk the aisle too), is used to masterful effect on the techno banger Wedding in Berlin, that celebrates both same-sex and LGBTI marriage. It’s an astute, progressive release for 2020 awaiting discovery by Petheads and new fans alike. STANDOUT TRACKS: Happy people, Monkey business, Wedding in Berlin
PERFECT FOR: Art on the dancefloor. The thinking person's night out. Youth not being a number. LISTEN IN IF YOU LIKE: Presets, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Soft

This week's mantra
SIMPLY BY BEING MADE YOU WERE MADE TO BELONG. BELONGING IS YOUR BIRTHRIGHT: PART 2/3 READ PART 1 IN LAST WEEKâ€™S ISSUE OF BYRON BAZAAR!
What if, from this day forward, you gazed upon yourself like a mountain or a lake or a sun or a moon or a tree or a tussock blade bowing in the wind? What if you remembered that you, too, are a creation of the divine natural world? A creation that does not need to be critiqued or judged or fixed or altered. A creation that does not need to earn their place in the world.
AUSTRALIAN MIGRATION ADVICE
Want to stay in Australia? Experienced and registered professional, book your free consultation with me - Chelsea 0403 189 670
A creation that is welcomed, accepted, embraced, beloved for all of the qualities it brings to life. Simply by being. Simply by being made you were made to belong. Belonging is in your bones and your blood. Belonging is your birthright, your inheritance from the divine. Forever flowing to you and through you. You. Belong. So please, show us your softness and your rocky edges, show us the ways you shine and blossom, the ways you dance in the wind. Show us your depths, your heights. Show us the uneven petals and the ways you are quiet. Show us the storms and let us also stand in your sunshine. Show us the many shapes you take. Show us all of you. Feel your feet beneath you, embracing this soft earth. Turn your face to the sun. Feel the rain on your fingertips, the wind at your back. Hear the pulsing of the ocean, the purposefulness of the river. All of them whispering to you, you belong, you belong, you belong. Because like everything in nature, you are divine, and you fit perfectly into this world. You were made to belong.
Tarotscopes WEEKLY TAROT FORECAST
retrograde sojourn has just finished, but his extremely slow motion through the last degrees of individualistic and future-oriented Aquarius, may be rather frustrating for people who are determined to get on with their practical to-do list. The need to achieve might be felt strongly with four planets (Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto) in ambitious and hard-working Capricorn. Right now success comes in small increments by working smarter not harder! Mars is edging closer to Jupiter, the grand beneficiary (exact 20th of March), and slowly but surely some great opportunities, especially for business-minded people may emerge. A lot of patience is necessary this week! There are no major astrological aspects during this week, other than a Sun/Pluto sextile (exact on Sunday). Whenever Pluto is involved in a positive way, it provides great will-power and resourcefulness. In combination with the Sun it increases the drive to manifest your life-force in some way. On Monday Mercury reenters Pisces; it takes him until the end of this month to retrace his steps and move beyond his retrograde shadow into new territory. Now is the perfect time to indulge in creative dreams, and visualise how to make them reality in four weeks when Mercury moves into dynamic and pioneering Aries. For the bigger picture read your Sun, Moon and Rising signs. A Tarot card is drawn for each astrological sign.

The 9 of Cups is often called the ‘wish card’. This week your formula for success involves expanding your mind, visualising what you want and how you feel when you get it. That alone generates enough momentum and motivation to get you going.
The 10 of Cups has lots to offer to the bull who loves comfort, beauty and refinement. This week holds an opportunity or even a very seductive offer. All you have to do is realise the gift that is in front of you and graciously accept it. Not much physical work is involved; it is rather a matter of magnetic attraction.
May the 3 of Disks assist you this week to move from doubt to clarity, in particular regarding work and career decisions. This is not yet the time for action but rather for planning and strategising your next move. It will be easier to start implementing steps in about a month.
The 5 of Cups paints the picture of an empty heart. You may have to deal with some temporary setback and disappointment. There is also a silver lining of hope and the possibility of great transformation as you start concentrating on what you want and how you can achieve it, rather than mulling over again and again what is wrong, bad and unfulfilling.
The Ace of Wands provides enormous energy, confidence and courage. Yet you have to be very conscious and careful how you apply this force in your world. It needs to be funnelled into a worthwhile and inspiring project, otherwise your fired-up power can turn destructive. If you are not sure how to invest it, competitive and intensive sport may be the answer.
The Knight of Cups is the knight in shining armour who brings good news and/ or romantic opportunities. He is generous and sensitive; he invites you to acknowledge your inner worthiness which is the foundation of openhearted connections.
The Hierophant Tarot card represents the archetype of a wise teacher or adviser. You may be called to help others to gain more clarity about their challenges. The way you offer your services comes straight from the heart, is unconditional and non-judgemental. Every time you counsel others you increase your understanding of yourself.
With the Prince of Wands by your side your creative powers are unlimited and your inspiration and confidence, combined with red-hot passion, pave the way to success with a wonderful can-do attitude. Use this time to aim high; you may surprise yourself and have a great time meanwhile…
The World Tarot card invites you to expand your mind and consciousness in order to build the new reality you want to live in. Now is the time to gain a more broad perspective that allows your natural visionary qualities to lead the way, rather than feeling limited by other people’s expectations.
The Fool Tarot Card heralds a new beginning and infuses your spirit with courage to go for what makes your heart sing. Right now you might throw caution to the wind, not care about what other people think of you, and embark on an adventure called the path less travelled. Trust it!
The 3 of Cups is all about sharing and caring, which is natural for the sociallyoriented Aquarius. This is the week to connect with old and new friends, work-colleagues or groups you are interested in. What a great time to gettogether for a good yarn, sharing abundant ideas and heartfelt openness!
The 3 of Swords symbolises a heavy heart and a dark mind. If you feel as if you have lost your way, don’t fall into the trap of judging yourself harshly for any mishap. Try to counsel yourself with the same benevolence as you would counsel your best friend. With that in mind you focus on unconditional love and recovery.

who keeps his other wives and other lives a secret. Much of her life is spent empty and waiting for him to visit, until she finds the name and address of one of the other wives. As her mind is overtaken with a competitive preoccupation with these two mystery women, we follow her obsessive mission to discover all she can about them. When Thursday strikes up a friendship with one unwitting wife and finds she has suspicious bruises and a husband who is very ‘protective’ of her, things begin to unravel as she is forced to question what she really knows about her husband and what he’s up to.
WHO IT'S FOR: The Wives is a psychological thriller, Ma

best for those who like to be kept guessing. The story is gripping as it spirals out, leaving you wondering who is telling the truth or what is even real in Thursday’s reality.
WHY YOU SHOULD READ OR LISTEN TO IT: There is not
much of a moral to the story, but you’ll find yourself wanting to discuss with people what they think is going on while you read it or what they thought of the ending. A good listen for when you’re either on holiday or you have a tonne of housework to get through. At Envy and The Barber Shop, we are much more than just another hair salon or Barber shop. Not only do we produce the very best in quality and traditional barbering in Byron Bay, but our knowledge and expertise in women’s colour, styling and cutting speaks volumes. With a qualified makeup artist on hand, we’re also the perfect choice for all special event styling, including weddings. We welcome new clients to experience all that we have to offer.
NARRATION QUALITY: The narrator, Lauren Fortgang,
reads Thursday as quite snarky and jealous to begin with, which makes her hard to like. Fortgang’s differentiation between characters is negligible yet she has skill in helping to build the ever-escalating tension of the narrative. Review written by Lauren Axelsen

You eat mozzies for breakfast to give us clean, crisp, non-humid air. You annihilate the holiday traffic, replacing it with casual, local flow. You wipe the living sweat from our pores and the mould from our wardrobes. You spit out the best, and most surprising and uncrowded waves for us to enjoy, sometimes all day. Autumn. i love you. That's all. - Survived Another Summer in the Shire
DEAR SURVIVED ANOTHER SUMMER IN THE SHIRE,
I had one dream for the future, when I was a newly Byron resident at the age of seventeen, and one dream only. Find a rental with air-conditioning in at least one room. It has taken me twenty years, and the housing costs have increased by 2000% but I am here to say that yes it may cost me an entire single parenting welfare check per month to keep it going, but I made it damn it. I made it.

Bee sting therapy. I am organising a group this weekend with live bees, and quite a few people have pulled out (soul exchange rate is $3333). Anyone else out there who would like to attend? Gwenyth loves it. I don't have any official qualifications, but we are so blessed with the medicine of wild bees in our region it would be a shame not to capitalise on them for our individual healing. The anti-inflammatory effects are amazing, and it has been proven to cure multiple sclerosis, arthritis and chronic pain. Buzzing With Health
DEAR BUZZING WITH HEALTH,
I've read of a few of the side effects. Mainly itching, anxiety, trouble breathing, chest tightness, heart palpitations, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, sleepiness, confusion, fainting, and low blood pressure, and death. All tiny factors in the way of a life of good health, and nothing a decent sized rose quartz shouldn't be able to dismantle, I’d say.

BYRON IS RENOWNED FOR ITS WILD BRUSH TURKEYS. HAVE YOU EVER WRITTEN ABOUT ANY TURKEYS? No turkey writing here. I guess some local band could write a song about them, or a kid write a kid’s book about them. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MUSIC TO CHILL OUT TO? The slower tracks from Daft Punk. Maybe some classical music when driving in the mountains or in nature. Sometimes when I write I play the Inception song, Time by Hans Zimmer, in the background.

TELL US WHERE YOU’RE FROM AND HOW YOU ENDED UP IN BYRON. I grew up near Bairnsdale - a small Victorian town, and then finished my education In Melbourne – where I stayed for a couple of decades. I wanted to try living near the ocean. I chose Suffolk for a three-month trial that I am now two years into. YOU’VE REPRESENTED AUSTRALIA IN SPRINT KAYAKING AND COMPETITIVE SURF LIFESAVING, AND NOW YOU’RE A WRITER WHAT COMES MOST NATURALLY? None of them. Fortunately, or unfortunately, you have to work hard in both writing and sport. The only thing that comes instant is coffee. WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR MAIN INSPIRATION FOR WRITING? The joy that comes from it. I had a month off before I started working a contract years ago, and started to write about a holiday I took. That became the basis of my first book, and I found that I really enjoyed that experience. I have stuck with it. YOUR THIRD NOVEL – “HER NAME WAS VIOLET”- HAS JUST HIT THE STREETS. WHAT’S IT ABOUT? Evan awakes from a coma in a hospital. His life feels over. Then he meets a physiotherapist named Violet who helps him on the road to recovery. Other people have told me it’s about life, love, relationships, a comeback and a will to live. IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT BYRON, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Obviously, like everyone else, the potholes! Also, some Byron council “rules” that hold back some startup businesses - I’ve experienced that.
