I am doing Richard Simmons exercise videos...
Now there's a blast from the past!!
I live in Upstate New York. We have been self-quarantined for three weeks now and are all fine. My guys are working from home. Two weeks ago it was if you could work from home then do so - to minimize exposure. Now it's mandatory for everyone and only essential services are operational. They told everyone at work that layoffs were coming.
Our grocery stores are encouraging curbside pickup or using instacart.com online. This is controlling the crazy hoarding that has been going on for awhile now. They are limiting the number of items you can get.
The big thing here seems to be getting respirators. The seriously ill are dying because they need the respirators.
Long shot but they are testing a malaria remedy which is showing promise and they will know the results within a week.
Keeping busy with Ancestry and MC and my family who are all home now.
Keep safe everyone.
Sorry to say it will take longer than a week, if you want to have a serious result.
Hi dear Friends, My Joe , little Yorkie mix Ritzy and I are hunkering down here in our cozy small Cottage like home just watching the world around us go a wee bit crazy like while clearing the store shelves of "Wipes, TP, and drinking water.....Sigh....What really made me darn right "Mad as a Red Hen" was when our sweet future "Granddaughter in Law" who is studying to be an RN posted Us from Her home in Ireland how that some low life's are stealing the hand cleaners right off the Patients rooms walls and out of the Hospitals not caring anything about the Doctors or Nurses there who desperately need them!!!! Joe and I bless and Pray everyday that those who are out there in the front lines trying their best to find a cure and take care of those whom are ill stay well themselves.... And you dear Friend's Please stay safe and well all of you cause I hold everyone of you right here in my heart....OK?!
Love and gentle Hugs,
I'm in Lenawee County, Michigan.We are now on lockdown in Michigan. Stores are pretty much empty here. Milk is rationed to 1 per person in some of the stores. We are able to go get our medicine. Hospitials and nursing homes are not allowing visitors at this time. As of yesterday we have one confirmed case of the Virus in Lenawee County and One in Hillsdale, Mich. Not sure which city in Lenawee though. I have been trying to stay home and away from people as much as I can. Our church has canceled everything except the 10:30 am service on Sunday morning and that is being live streamed through our facebook website page, because they can't have more than 10 people in the building at a time right now. It was different but at least we got to hear our pastor. He also has been doing a mini service (about 15 to 20 minutes long) each morning for us which I really appreciate. Keeps my mind going in the right way. The Deacons have been calling all the elderly every few days to make sure that we are all doing ok. Glad of that because my furnace went out and Citizens Gas & Fuel would not send a tech to our house. When I called her she heard me coughing and asked If i was sick. I didn't lie and I told her I have had bronchitis and I have been taking antibiotics for it. It was so cold in the house and I really needed my furnace fixed but they would not let any one come here. When the deacons heard about that, they got the guy that works on our furnace at our church to come out the very next day and within 45 minutes they had it fixed and running fine. Thank God for that. People around here are going crazy about hording Toilet paper and hand sanatizer and anything else they can. I don't understand that. We are supposed to be trying to help one another. I am very thankful for all the people on our forum. We have such wonderful helpful people on here. Please everyone stay in as much as you can and stay healthy. God Bless all. Sandy
Thank you Jen for putting this up for us to keep in touch with each other and know how we are doing/
As most of you know I am in Canada up North from Montreal .
We have now gone on lock down and like everyone else going through this we are under the order to stay home ,, follow the advise of the experts be safe not sorry.
Our Prime Minister is doing an amazing job in this situation as a matter of fact when his wife came back from England 3 weeks ago she tested positive and went in home lock down even though he is not sick with this virus he put himself in confinement .
He holds a news conference every morning out side his residents and keeps us all to date what is going or what will be done.
We have a very sharp increase in the number of cases here ( it jumped to over 400 in one day ) because every one coming back from there trips etc. are NOT doing as they are told go right home,,, to go right home NO stopping for groceries or anything else,, but because they are not doing this and the Young ones who think they are invisible and keep on hanging out in large groups he has hinted on declaring Marshal Law .
Being on lock down here is the same world wide ,,, only groceries store pharmacies and liquor stores and the Pot stores ,, yep you read right God forbid the Quebeckers should have there booze or pot taken away.
And the Primer of Quebec ( not Canada just Quebec) said on the news the other day we will not close the Liquor stores nor the Pot Stores because there are people that need it so we will not take it away from them my jaw hit the floor and said what an A** WIPE,
See the difference between the two??
The Prime Minister Of Canada made a solemn promise to all Canadians that the shelves will never be bare that no one will go with out if a shelf is cleared it will restocked that night or next morning and the AW promised to keep all who want drunk or high well I guess that is one way of riding this out but my question is are they going to use the bottles as toilet paper or a snack??
We all know when anyone smokes pot they get the munchies SMHID=== shake my head in disgust
Again thank you Jen for giving us this place to post and hope you have a great birthday trip when you can go .
Please be safe all sis and I are fine and hope the same to you all.
Randy in Canada
Liquor manufacturers here are making hand sanitizer out of alcohol and distributing it for free. You can use rubbing alcohol to rub down surfaces. That's the positive. On the other hand, liquor is being delivered everywhere for consumption. Apparently no one wants to live without booze. Go figure.
With everyone about to be unemployed, you'd think they would save their money for real food and other necessities. We are what we are.
My family lives in and around Montreal. They are also on lock down. So far no one is sick.
Maintaining the alcohol and medical marijuana supply is extremely important. When an alcoholic is abruptly cut off from alcohol, withdrawal complications result in hospitalization which further taxes the health care system. The same is true with the pot supply. Concentrations of medical marijuana are typically quite high and many people may be unknowingly addicted.
Personally I would rather the addicts keep getting what they need than see them occupying a hospital bed needed for someone seriously ill from COVID 19.
