The Spreading (And Potentially Deadly) Coronavirus Epidemic....


Recommended Posts

Idk, I can only control so much, but until shit calms down another few hard degrees I will continue avoiding restaurants and public places (rarely even do take-out/delivery), and curbside 100% of my shopping which is hella convenient. 

We have HyVee grocery stores, and they have a pretty solid online order/curbside situation, and Target has been smooth as butter on non-cold shelf type items.  TP and Sanitizer have been my only acquisition struggle, with even sanitizer starting to become more widely available (also found TP on Amazon via slickdeals yday).

I haven't stepped into a building in some time, and with people acting like savage animals out there, I don't plan to for a good while.  My main issue is that I have a kiddo that is with his Mom 50% of the time and she is handling all this about the opposite as I am :(.

However, super stoked that the park playgrounds in Iowa are opening back up on Monday, that will go a long way in keeping the toddler content.  Still will try to find the little emptyish ones where possible and take along sanitizer and distance etc.

Just in case anyone was wondering, my Aunt has beat Corona and is out of hospital now! We're thanking our lucky stars over that one, fingers crossed that's the closest scrape our family will have with

Here we go, brothers: please read... and please take mentions of what I say here: I live in NY. Long Island. There are well near 4k cases here reported,  with 25k cases in NY whole reported.

Saw this today.

Those idiot punks who are doing all that burning/rioting everywhere I'm guessing are not noticing or caring about that whole social distancing thing.

But at least a lot of them are/were wearing masks.......🥵

And then there is the issue of  all the noxious stuff being dumped into the atmosphere - so not terribly good for the environment/global warming either.  I certainly hope Greta gets on their case! 🤬

On a positive note (at least from our perspective) we enjoyed a meal at one our favorite restaurants today - it was not very busy whereas before this whole fiasco we would almost always have to wait in line.  I had a Mexican chicken fried steak breakfast and Mrs. Tabonga had a fried chicken lunch.   Life is good.........

Maybe but the distancing is the most important...since the viruses can only travel so far you see.  Really there is no way all this rioting is doing any good for anybody.

I went to walmart last night have not been there since the whole lockdown started and you wouldn't believe how many people are not wearing a mask. This is up in NH mind you after last night I do not wish to step back in to a walmart.

You expected people to be civilized in Wal-Mart?!??!?!

Absolutely. NH is one of the most wonderful states. People are nice, civilized, traffic is minimal... of course, depending on whom you ask what I just might not apply to Manchester, but otherwise NH is simply fab 🙂

@avatar! @Snesfinder

You folks need to lighten up IMHO - it was more a (friendly) jab at captainmorgandrinker than anything else.  (And our statements make about an equal amount of sense (which is to say pretty much none) if you parse them out.)   (Quoting him, using the identical phraseology and using the emoticon should have been a dead giveaway.)

Parts of Manchester are awesome. But no matter where you live in Manchester you have to deal with the occasional homeless drug addict from time to time. That can get old.

As far as ranking local Wal-Mart's in order of civility and cleanliness, it goes hooksett, Manchester gold street, followed by Amherst. Although getting shot at or robbed in the gold street parking lot is a much higher possibility, it is much more of a mixed bag than Amherst, which is the Wal-Mart that most massholes like yourself tend to visit.😅

Speak for yourself bro, I haven't been to Wal-Mart in years 😛

Driving past strip malls in middle-of-nowhere NH does remind me a bit of the Midwest, alas.

After going to the NH flea's Sat and Sun I expect cases to increase. I love how me and only a very few wore masks or understood what social distancing means.

Was at savers in Nashua on Saturday looking for some clothes. I'd say 75 percent wore masks. It was also very slow compared to a typical Saturday afternoon, which surprised me. 

Restaurants with outside seating were packed though! Especially Frontera grill and the Mexican restaurant on DW highway near the savers.

The WHO out this out:

Given the source you have to take it with a grain of salt.

If true though the masks are even less useful than I previously thought

It’s a good thing I was drunk when I made this week’s work lunches. I am eating one now and it’s got way too much salt. I wonder if I can fix the rest of them. 

I for one am not interested in being less cautious before I get a vaccine. 50 out of 60 attendees at a choir practice in early March came down with it, and they think only one had it before.
