On Monday he was diagnosed with corona virus, and has now potentially infected all of the kids and staff at that mixer. No consequences for his behavior was reported, and the question was asked, what do you do with people who refuse to comply with recommended quarantine? I don't know the answer to that, but I do know the probable result. It could be a real life disaster movie. So sad and it makes me angry.
    Follow them with a little robot helicopter that shouts “cooties! cooties!” Until they go home.

    In my typical "whistling past the graveyard," I'm thinking that 7.5 billion "little miracles" is clearly ENOUGH!! Time to start culling the herd and maybe knock the population down by about a third... That oughta' do nicely. Yep Yep!

    It must be a nightmare for those whose immune system or that of a loved one is compromised. I guess you'd just have to try to stay largely isolated for the time being.

    I've heard it might improve with warmer weather but don't know if that's accurate.

    Trump is an expert on that too!

    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we'll see
    I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
    Just as long as you stand by me.

    From what I hear, hand sanitizer is sold out everywhere around here. But apparently, you can make your own from alcohol and aloe vera. But hand sanitizer supposedly kills the good germs too and makes them grow back last, unlike soap and water?

    I am also wondering about the non-perishable food issue. I've read that people should get a month's supply of it in case they have to stay home and/or because they're expecting the store shelves to be emptied as others stock up. So if you don't get it now, then there might not be any left. But then, many people can't afford to buy a month's worth of non-perishables at a time so that would leave nothing for them.

    So far, I've pretty much done nothing different. I wash my hands a lot anyway. Youse?

    A month worth of food can be purchased pretty economically. Mine is all rice, dried beans, canned vegetables / meat, and butter in the freezer.

    Edit: Actually, I forgot to pick up butter. I still need paper products as well. I did manage to get half a dozen bottles of wine and some boxes of stove top. Plus I have my big ol' blue water barrel from Field and Stream, though I should get another.

    Apparently, the early symptoms of coronavirus mimic OCD; people start washing their hands a lot more before experiencing a compulsion to go out and stockpile toilet rolls, pasta, porridge, and rice. If you have been experiencing such symptoms, you're probably infected already.
