    The first person infected with this Wuhan Flu disease in Pasco County FL was recently reported dead. This was inaccurate - I found out this morning when I read the latest article. In the article today the man stated that (because of his remote location I think) he couldn't get various needed household items delivered.

    I emailed him and the newspaper to volunteer to bring him whatever he needs for him and his family. So if they accept I Will be going out for that.

    The chances of getting this thing are minuscule. And if I Do get it - it's not as if I have a massive heart attack or my head explodes and I drop dead. I get sick, I piss and moan about it for a short while, and then I'm OK again. I don't want to be struck by lightning either - but I don't bother altering my habits to avoid it very much either. Although; in all fairness; I no longer golf in the rain - so maybe I Am getting soft. <g>

Health workers must sanitize before and after a shift on the virus floor bringing fresh clothing and shoes to go home in. We stay home because that is what normal people do... follow the instructions that at best sound logical and do not take matters in their own uneducated hands.

    What the CDC is asking us all to do sounds reasonable and for my house isn't hard to do as it won't harm us in any way. I do realize many can't and must venture out. Just do it with caution so you don't infect anyone else. If following the rules and logic saves one life then so be it... am good with what they are asking right now.

    That would be a Plus. <g>

    Traffic would almost certainly be light as well.

    And let's face it: no police officer will want to stop some old pikey and risk getting infected from him. <g>

    On the other hand; round trip flights from Tampa to Philly and back were $62. total - and that is just barely more than one tank of gas. I think I need about six tanks to make it round trip driving my van. Even more in my Tacoma.

    That is all next month and it is my opinion that this will mostly be 'all over but the shouting' by then anyway.

    Although officials are somewhat concerned with helping people like you I think they they are more concerned with protecting others from people like you.

    Poodle Head Mickey, I’ve got bad news for you. Even with all that stuff tuned off, they still track you. Here over half the Police, maybe all of them have cameras on them. The older most obvious ones are the two cameras on the trunk. There are cameras on many traffic lights arms. All the tolls have cameras on them. I was in Orlando last year, I don’t think you could go anywhere without going through a toll booth. From the Airport to Holiday Inn Universal, I lost count of all the toll plazas. You drive through any neighborhood and I can guarantee you’ll be picked up on someone’s doorbell cam.

    At least here, if you have one positive (real or a false positive due to bad test performance) you need two negatives before the Health Department gives you a "recovered" and free to go status

    I am currently out of work for up to 3 weeks. My wife had surgery on 3-18, so I am home to take care of her. The doctors order was she can only have soft food, eggs, grits, pasta. No meat, bread or chicken as it could get caught in her throat. Thanks to the MORONS, trying to find food to keep her fed is next to impossible. The store shelves are wiped out.

    She has underlying medical conditions. While i am not worried about me, as I am in pretty good health, I am worried about bringing it to her. Later on today I am going to try again to get food and TP but I am not going to hold my breath. I went on the internet trying to get toilet paper and came across some. They are asking $30 for used toilet paper. I chit you not. I don,t know which is worse someone is selling used, or that someone bought it. When I clicked on it, it came up not available, so someone bought used. YUUUUUUUUUUUCK

    I haven't seen paper products on store shelves for weeks. The local major national store that is normally open 24/7 now closes at night and opens at 6 AM. I got there at 6:15. Parking lot full.

    Picked up two "smallish" TP's, one large paper towel, four cans of cat food, two cans of black beans and a dozen eggs.

    You should have seen all of the full baskets, people just buying everything, clearing the shelves in short order.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    IMO...

    Part of the reason our system is soooo easy to break...
    Is we are trying to fine tune it too far.
    There NEEDS to be a small reserve within the system...
    ESPECIALLY in each or our pantries...
    For the unknown.

    We seem to have forgotten, during these good times...
    That bad times happen...

    GA hvac I appreciate the offer and will see how the store run goes. I would be lying to say that I am not stressing hard. I thought seriously of having her postpone the surgery until this nonsense is over but hopefully once she is healed her pain will be gone or seriously reduced in her neck. Just it was tough watching her suffer like that and not a damn thing I could do about. I am used to fixing things, and don't take it well when I can't. The one up side is the garden is coming along nicely. We have been running in the 80's for close to a month now. This summer I believe is going to be brutal.
