    22 March

    morning all,
    thought I get us going this week.

    Lav, thanks for the offer of masks by mail, sounds like a good company name? Robyn (my wife) found some stashed away in our little back room that holds many things in a very small congested space, hidden under a bunch of other things.

    boy , the pollen is ramped up. As I get older, it seems to affect me more. Spring is a pretty time of year, though. looks like a good year to grow your own food!

    hope everyone is doing well.

    Re: 22 March

    And good afternoon all how are we today then? Hope everyone is safe. The weather over here today is absolutely glorious little bit cold but really bright and sunny rabbits are out playing and we're in the conservatory watching them
    The only problem with this is the good weather has also brought the idiots out ...despite all the warnings and asks there are still complete lunatics out there. their idea of social distancing is to all go and park in a car park somewhere and climb Mount Snowdon or any other nice Scenic areas. both the Peak District and North Wales was absolutely snowed under yesterday with visitors. The North coast Scotland route that's the nc500 which people compare to Route 66 but colder was absolutely mobbed was people in campervans and motorhomes unfortunately it isn't just isolated scenery, people actually do live in these places too. On top of that you're also getting the assholes of the world.Some NHS staff getting abuse in the public I suspect drink frustration and a lot other things are coming into play here but nevertheless to call nursing staff germ spreaders get back to your own country and things like that is bang out of order These good people are the ones we rely on and do rely on when the wheel comes off... as I say we are seeing the absolute stars in humanity but we're also seeing the real shit and scum
    Let's stick with trying to help each other there's enough bad feeling bad press worry and scaremongering going on as it is
    Hi Sam thanks for starting this thread of mate believe it or not I was just about to do exactly the same so well done Sam the Fred starter oh no things have gone a bit wrong at the bridge site bit of a party started ...got a bit out of hand cops called and then became spectacle for all the locals if you note even the cops are keeping their distance

    Never went metal detecting today either. No problem detecting in the field however for me there is an issue of travelling down together in the same car so I binned the idea
    Hiya lav hope all is well with you despite what everyone thinks there are no exceptions to this ..stay safe did doggie enjoy walk ..?after me talking about fit bit ..just had to change the battery in mine

    didyou see this?

    hiya ppqp ..how are you then? so the boss decided to play did he?I understand how easy it is to fall into woe is me after watching the news and every other broadcast ..apart from definitive news there is so much hype speculation comparison etc ..that people just get bad news overload..it then in time causes panic anxiety stress etc which also reduces immune systems ..IMO considering how movement and freedom of has been limited I also think media should be censored ..its ok in "normal times "to have freedom of information ..but in times like this I m not sure its favourable to let everyone jump in with their own guesstimates. Stay safe.

    hiya treacle ..you ok ? hope so keep it like that

    Re: 22 March

    Good evening friends,

    Cold & windy here today as well Mick. What happened to spring? Not sure, maybe it got scared off!
    Glad you decided to stay home today & away from the crazies.I imagine some day this week I will have to make a trip to the supermarket but no other plans to leave the premises. I’m no dummy, Lol
    I have seen reports of nurses being verbally abused in stores around here too. If I was still working & had to stop in a store for something on the way home I would probably carry a baseball bat, no kidding!

    Sam, glad you found some masks. That chicken house dust is deadly, haha!
    The allergens are out & about, for. Sure! The Governor of PA said tomorrow morning at 8 am they will be enforcing the closure of non-life sustaining businesses, uh oh! I have a feeling some folks will be getting some big fines.

    Hello to PQ up there in snow city. Sorry about your weather forecast, hope it’s not too much.
    I’m kinda happy we have an extra freezer in the garage, right now it’s pretty well filled.

    Cyn, hope you are OK on this chilly day!

    Pauly, don’t be hiding now, check in.

    Det, what’s going on with you & your crew today?

    Pie, I’d love to see you check in as well

    I’m starting to work on making cloth face masks that I will send the the Relief Crafters organization. They will distribute them wherever they are needed. It’s a little something to do to help out.
    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Sam...been a long time since you started the thread, well done. Now that it's allergy season everyone will be freaking out. Glad you found some masks.

    Mick...oh no a party that got out of hand! LOL Haven't been watching the news today, except carrot top is talking right now. Glad you didn't go detecting, I think it's best just to stay put. It was a glorious day here so did get a couple of walks in.

    Lav...depending on how long this continues I'm thinking I'll use the deep freeze at work. I never was one to plan meals but now it looks like I'll have to figure it out. LOL

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Time to figure out what's for dinner, I have a lot of choices right now. Have a good evening all...PPQP

    Re: 22 March

    Mae all -

    Sorry to be out of touch... been a bit hectic here. Hubs and I both have been having weird spiking in temps, but he is high risk and his fever spiked high with aches etc. I was in touch with our doc (2 hours away) to monitor... for the last 2 nights I have had our emergency kit with all medical documents, etc. next to the front door in case we had to go to the ER in a hurry. (Last night I actually slept in my clothes...) But so far so good - I ran early to CVS to get tamiflu, so hopefully that will chill this thing out. Meanwhile, I have plenty of work to do from home, though no dough $$.

    Mick, love the jokes, (quilts) how is Julie, and how is your nephew in the nick with the Virus? Hey since I live close to your bridge I was glad to see the cops �� show up.

    Lav, so glad to hear you are making those masks... I m sorry that I sold my sewing machine in this last move, darn. Stay well!

    PPQ, glad you have a second freezer, ours is ridiculously full... I have to go thru and see what is there... glad you have some meals ready.

    Sam, plant something in your garden for me, will you? Even when I lived in CT and had garden beds, I never got around to having a food garden...

    Det, hope all is OK. Pauly, it would be so great to hear how you are doing... Pi sending greetings...

    Hold the light! Thank your grocery/store clerks and all in uniform, all medical personnel ... they are absolute heroes, every one of them...

    oy oy ABeroooos!

    Tree, that's not fun, so sorry. did you get the report on strictly avoiding NSAID's such as ibuprofen with C19? apparently in can cause serious complications
    in a person with this particular virus so in this case we are supposed to stick with acitaminofen.

    Lav, that dinner sounds fun. lately it's been a mixed bag of things but left-overs are being strictly used-up as this is no time for wastage. tonight it's tostadas!
    using some mysterious 'taco-smelling concoction' I defrosted from the freezer. ha! have some fresh veg thankfully. Need to start a batch of beans sprouting right away too.
    Only thing I have on hand are garbanzo but that will be just fine.

    I'm so disgusted by the major news networks on both 'sides' of the aisle not missing a beat to take partisan jabs at each other. If a freaking global pandemic cannot get the simpletons of
    Earth to wake up to the idea that we are all humans and desperately need 100% tolerance and mercy now more than ever, then perhaps this species really doesn't deserve to live.

    I have a small project to do today at least: fix a leak in my tire. wooo!

    and.. amazingly I have a job prospect to bid on for a commercial shoot. will be talking to them in the morn. whew! there's hope.

    Mick, same here mate, amazing peeps and incredibly ignorant morons are both to be found here and there.

    Darlene sewed up some rather stylish cloth masks yesterday so we're researching various things to stuff them with. I was thinking garlic toast. ;P
    we'll have to do some Corona selfies soon.

    In an effort to preemptively stave-off boredom I even downloaded a videogame the other day! so I'll have to figure out how to play it soon perhaps.

    PPQ, walks are grand. we played a bit of soccer in the yard yesterday which was really nice. Good, simple, healthy stuff.

    did hear from both dad and mom in the last two days and so far both are well.

    That's the latest from Vegas zombie-land.

    be well loves

    Re: 22 March

    Good evening Abbers,

    Now the sun comes out after a full day of rain, haha!!!
    Since I refuse to walk in the chilly rain I actually put 30 minutes in on the dreadmill, better than nothing I guess LOL
    Made up a big batch of English muffins, just because
    Just heard of the first Covid 19 case up in the little town where my son & his family live. It’s a 34 year old nurse ~ naturally She young & healthy otherwise so she should be OK.

    PQ, I gave YB a small list of things to pick up since he had to go out anyway & he came home with all kinds of extra stuff including a frozen turkey breast so it went into the freezer. He has that hunter gatherer gene, haha! I hope your day was good!

    Mick, I’m glad Julie stands up for herself! Sounds a lot like me & there’s nothing wrong with that.
    The Amish guys talked YB into planting 1 Dr Martin’s lima bean (not sure of the spelling). Apparently one bean will produce bushels of limas - we shall see

    Cyn, I’m so sorry to hear you guys are sick. Please take good care of yourselves & stay home as much as possible

    Det, I often forget to label something headed for the freezer then have to play the guessing game too. I guess that’s just normal, haha!
    I am with the Dems in refusing to OK a pandemic package that doesn’t address the needs of every day citizens. Of course the Repugs want to bail out the big businesses - airlines, hotels, oil & fracking companies. That’s total BS! What good is a booming economy when the people are sick, suffering or dying?

    Hello to Pauly, check in please.

    Hey to Sam & PIe!

    Have a good night all!

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...staying safe and physically distancing. We've got the same idiots here! I would love to meet Julie, sounds like a woman after my own heart. We had a bright sunny day with a high of 50F and now it's snowing...so not even thinking of gardening. LOL

    TG...so sorry to hear you guys are sick. Hopefully the tamiflu will be all you need. I might actually go through the freezer at the community centre to see what's there. LOL

    Det...did you get your project finished? Good luck with the commercial shoot bid. Our outdoor spring soccer program is supposed to start April 18th. We rent the playing fields from the City so are waiting to see if the permits get cancelled. Glad to hear mom and dad are good. I've actually been touching base with my family and friends today. Just needed to actually "talk" to someone. LOL

    Lav...wow, 30 minutes on the dreadmill. Did you have to move the clothes off first? LOL Just heard on the news that the city is finally closing all playgrounds. All the community centres closed theirs off on Friday. Wish we could plant common sense in our gardens.

    I am being laid off effective April 1st but will have a return date of June 1st. This way I can collect Unemployment Insurance and the company will top it up to my normal salary. Found this out from the accountant and she's the one who would know. LOL

    Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: 22 March

    good morning all,
    got a call from the Court yesterday saying they were closing till April 1st. So no land records work for awhile. I do have an on line subscription for one county but it only goes back to the 1970's and the plats are not all on there either. Wondered when they were going to close. I was surprised they stayed open this long. There have been a few cases in the county to the north of us so it is but a matter of time before our little neck of the woods will have its first case. I live in Rump land so lots of folks here preach hoax, faux news bs. There seems to be more worry about the stock market than health, I don't get it but there it is.
    hope everyone is fine, TG, you take care!
