    Where's Stirly this morning???? or afternoon or whatever time it is.


    I'm here - I was just so involved getting some deep cleaning done yesterday that I wasn't online much. Basically had the lappie on to play music. I haven't gotten to the doorknobs yet, Jackie, but I did clean out the sockets in my multi-socket extension cord. I don't much like housework but when I get going, I keep seeing things that need to be done and go from one thing to another. My apartment looks like I just moved in - stuff everywhere - but I am slowly getting it tidied up. Washing every article of non-clothing that needs to be washed - sofa throws, curtains, etc. At some point I will have this squeaky clean home to NOT receive visitors.

    Joe is doing the whole 'I'm fine -- I'm not anxious/bothered anything' and I sort of wish he'd just 'fess up to feeling SOMETHING off -- I just feel like such a whingebag
    going to get lunch -- highlight of the day -- talk later
    Molls, everyone's reaction and method of dealing with this situation is different. You don't sound like a whingebag to me - just expressing your opinions and concerns about what the near future holds. I think all of us to some degree are experiencing a lot of different emotions from worry to fear to anger about this world crisis we are going through. Let's face it, none of us has ever gone experiences something like this, nor have we been informed as to how to ready ourselves to face such a situation. Even people with the most positive outlooks on life will find it hard going with everything that is required to get us through this - restrictions, loss of income, uncertainty about the future not to mention the inevitable of losing people close to us. So, no one whingeing - just expressing their thoughts and after all, if we don't have the lines of communication open by whatever means - this forum, facetime, texting, whatever, we are going to have an even harder time dealing with all of this.

    Unsung hero, that's for sure, Satzy. Don't know if I would be so willing in your shoes. Especially if others were not adhering to the rules - masks, gloves, etc. Hat's off to you, our girl!!

It seems so inhumane that his loved ones couldn't spend the last moments with him. But this is the evil bastard virus we are fighting against. I fear it wonít be the only person locally to die.
    Sorry for the depressing post, but it really does somehow take it to a new level when itís on your doorstep.
    So it is good all the work that needs doing in the garden and odd jobs around the house, it is so important to keep busy I think. People who just sit and watch tv all day and vegetate doesnít bear thinking about two weeks down the line. I was speaking to a Garda (police) sergeant, I know, last week and he said they are concerned about a big increase in domestic violence coming from families being stuck indoors together for so long.
    Jeez cheerful sod ainít I.
    Good night ladies.
    Tabbers - good to see you. As for the highlighted part about that man dying by himself - there was an article I read that was written as a wake-up call to parents who are not keeping their kids at home -mostly teens from what I understand. Basically what it said is that if your child gets the virus and has to be hospitalized, he/she will be taken in an ambulance that you are not allowed to ride in, isolated in a room that you are not allowed to enter and will have to go through the whole process alone. It really brought home to me what can actually happen if someone gets the virus and has symptoms that require hospitalization.
    As for the domestic violence, I had heard that about a week ago, that there had been a huge increase. I'm sure that having kids home from school, plus not working and not knowing how to deal with that would send someone who was already inclined to take it out on others, into a rampage. Sadly, another result of this crisis. My bet is that the limitations put on people concerning their activities outside the home will also restrict addicts - whatever their addiction - from getting their supplies and that domestic violence will be a result of that as well.

    I guess I should get back to cleaning now that I've written an epistle.

    Wishing you all the best day you can make it!!!

    Re: FORWARD -- MARCH --- ARMY March 2020

    Good morning everyone I have been up hours too but was Netflixing. Just watched Self Made. Agree with you Bridget, Iím an introvert too and donít mind being at home but it must be hell for the extroverts. The lack of traffic is wonderful. The thing Iím finding strange is that the choice of being able to do what i want is taken away from me. As Tabs says this too shall pass.

    Waves to the world,
    First official day of Spring the clocks went forward.....baltic oitside and I have no idea what time it is. Mr. JC laighs as he says I must be the only person in the world who gets jet-lag loosing this hour.

    @Tabbers (a.k.a. KTAB)......it is so sad. I read of a young woman who has been badly disabled all her life...........raised millions for childrens charities like Children in Need. She died on Friday of her disabilties (not the virus) and just one parent can go to her funeral. I broke down.
    Oddly enough months and months ago I chose just to be cremated, no crowds, no relatives............then have a memorial service later.

    I'll let Mr. JC to ask their criminal lawyer about the domestic violence. She has to cover police stations for the swines that demand to see thir solicitor, They're in a poor area of the city so its rife to start with.

    @IamMary..............the zoom stuff is today. My cousin in the USA is organising it. He must be beside himself they're about 100 miles outside of Boston these days.......one of his twins has some problems from being born so premature.
    The fact my fringe is now so long, my roots are so grey............he'll think we've bought an Afghan Hound and wonder where I am.

    I'll be back later when I'm a) not so tired b) not so grumpy.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Re: FORWARD -- MARCH --- ARMY March 2020

    Quick hello, Im finding Im busier than ever, in particular with phone calls to check in on family/friends. Also an introvert, happy in my own bubble, so no hardship overall.

    Dont know tabbers re the lock down period, I suppose they dont really know themselves.
    They are on the radio now, saying that the expect the peak to be in 2 weeks. How do they know when we hit the peak? Surely if they lift restrictions it will come at us with a vengeance?

    Doing a drive-by drop off to my folk now, back later.

    Hi Mick and all,

    Bearing up considering. I reckon i'm one of the lucky ones. 1. i still have work and wages coming in, for now anyway. 2. I have transformed myself from problem boozer/problem thinker to a grateful fairly content within, solutions focused mofo.

    Wishing y'all an easy, peaceful 24 hours. X

    'I am part of all that I have met, yet all experience is an arch wherethro', gleams that untravelled world whose margins fade, forever and forever when I move'

    Zen soul Warrior. Freedom today-

    The zoom thingy lasted longer than we thought........I know I was cynical about it all but it was a hoot. We reverted back to being children in my Aunt's back garden except we could thump each other.
    Very tired now though.

    Mers yer man 'Simon says' 2 weeks full throttle lockdown and that's the strictest it will get. They will reassess in 2 weeks then but fully expect to be able to loosen restrictions a tad by then.
    If you watch Sky News tonight. They have a reporter within China trying to fly to Beijing - unbelievable but very impressive restrictions - even air stewarts were in FULL PPE on board & taking temperatures mid-flight.
    They have decided it's now a foreign problem & don't want us there.
