Hi Pat ,
Yes one the biggest brewer here is doing the same thing making hand sanitize and just watched our news and a Sports equipment maker has now started to make face masks for the front liners and any others who want a full face mask,,, and some clothing manufacturers who make jeans are now making medical items such as O,R, gowns , pants and also patients gowns.
As usual my comments on the alcohol and Pot where lets say misunderstood I am NOT talking about an alcoholic that is an addiction same as medical marijuana that is used to relieve the horrific pain a Cancer Patience would go through.
An Alcoholic can not just walk into a Liquor store for a bottle or two most are homeless and beg for a few bucks to get the cheapest wine they can find or drink rubbing alcohol I have even seen some melt down shoe polish to get a small amount of Alcohol and as for the Marijuana well my Uncle before he passed away last year was a heavy pot smoker it was the only thing that helped him with his pain .
Am I belittling them?? ABSOLUTE NOT that comment was taken out of context.
TOAD/Otter/MOUSE checking in. Southern Indiana, Daughter has finished restocking kitchen, Remodeling took so long all we had left was dust and some cans of re fried beans. 2 grocers in area. IGA is not only selling but offer car pickup and handling of limited supplies with Grace and supplying free sack lunches to the kids!
Walmart and Amazon deliveries are coming in bits and pieces. I asked Bobbie to order a lg bottle of Tylenol and price was $75! No on that.
I have a flareup of Fibromylogy (spelling) that triggered Shingles. I have been on isolation since 1st week of February as High risk health. After Chemo/ radiation 3 times for 3 different Cancers over 35 + yrs I have no natural Antibodies left. Plus I am allergic to many medications, fruits, vegges , eggs, LATEX, Sulfurs and more.
Called Doctor and he set up my medications w/refills. Pharmacy is 2 blocks. The Office manager called and went over health issues. Nurse called and just talked and joked w/me. Said to call with any questions.
My gardener and his wife both good friends, brought me 3 audio books. They have been working on tree landscaping and called me came over with 2 helpers today and cut down 2 trees that did not make it through the storm. Trimmed and saved 1 tree. $250. All others I called wanted $600 +. 2 neighbors came out to watch and we shouted to each other at a safe distance.
I worry for my 2 older brothers in Calif. Grandsons 3( Texas, Virginia, Missouri) either going to college or teaching college and one is a Physicist who is in isolation all the time anyway, are happy and safe so far. All love games and are using internet for work/school. Daughter working from home her husband is Pharmacy Tech on Marine base.
I have cabin fever, itchy and working through the pain. I am Praying for all and sending good wishes. I cried a little in frustration but shake it off. Will be in yard early when its not raining but pollen season is upon us. IN/out on MC.
Time to pull out Jigsaw puzzle and teach cats new tricks.
Hugs to all and hang there.
Me, again. Well our Governor just issued a Stay at Home order here in Minnesota. I goes into effect this Friday at 5pm and ends Friday April 10th at 5pm. Also, restaurant and bars will remain closed until May 1, while schools will remain closed until May 4.
Stay safe everyone.
Heard a new take on this today...our Creator got tired of all the bickering, so He sent us all to our rooms.
I've made a new "conservative" friend this week. I'm so tired of arguing with people. I suspect he is too.
I'm both bored and stressed, but alive and healthy.
I'm helping someone design a colour scheme for a forum. I finally get to show off my tutorial!!
Cancelled the road trip today.
When I saw that the world needs 80% of people to stay home in order to beat this, it felt wrong and selfish to even continue considering it.
...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!!!!
You truly see the best and worst of humanity in these times.
Not sure if this is allowed, only given the circumstances. My mum sent me this, to see if it was useful. It’s a link to a finically adviser. Who post various things. That are now free or significantly reduced. Things like talking books, kindle etc seem to be a good idea. Some things about banks and what to do. If you lose your jobs and are unable to pay mortgages, rent etc. Try to use online banking, not the phone. Anyway the list and advise goes on.
Sorry if you don’t think it’s appropriate, no problem. Delete it. Just thought it may be useful, for those in lockdown, well most people really.
Take care, Tracy
Things in the US are looking pretty dire. I’m in Texas and as of now, we have over 1119 cases of Coronavirus and 12 deaths but testing was pretty limited due to a lack of testing kits so expect numbers to rise dramatically over the next few days. I’m 63 with no underlying health issues so I’m doing okay but everyone please use good judgment for the next few weeks and take care!
