The infection rate of COVID19 is way lower than that of bad information about it. Too bad there isn’t even a mask to cut the rate down.
You mean . . . there’s something going around?
Been struggling with worsening asthma. I switched out another air filter on Thursday. I hope it’s just seasonal allergies and asthma.
My seasonal allergies used to start in what used to be spring; this year, they decided to wait a few months.
Or is it still spring?
Trump is killin’ all the nanas, even those of his political “friends”.
I’ve been so angry today…the folks next door are STILL having gatherings, arriving in Caddy SUVs and a huge Dodge pickup (PLUS they have five cars of their own) outdoors, but no masks (I’m guessing they’re not wearing them inside, either)…and I’m stuck in the house, with not even enough gas in my car to go for a nice ride, and no money to buy more.
I just don’t get it.
And in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, a state of emergency has been declared. As of 6pm last night, we moved to stage 4 of lockdown 2.0. With a curfew from 8pm to 5am. I missed this news as I was sleeping after work. It means that, as a nightowl, I can’t grocery shop at my customary time of after 8pm. For the next six weeks, at least. Oh well, whatever it takes to get this plague under control.
I found out about on FB from Carly Findlay, whom I follow. I hope things are better there than they are here in the US!
Remember Stephnie Weir from “MADtv”? This is hilarious!
I have a friend in the Midlands, and someday I’m gonna go there and visit her!
I just picked up a prescription from a tiny local pharmacy. The prescription had to be compounded so there’s only a few places I can get it. There’s only one or two people who work there, and the hours are limited.
They keep the door locked, I suppose because it is really tiny store. I was supposed to call them when I got there and wait outside. The only person with the key was in the bathroom, a situation I can identify with, so that wasn’t a problem.
Five minutes later the compounding pharmacist, whom I know from previous refills, walked out with the drug.
I was wearing a mask of course–but she wasn’t. You’d think a health professional would know better.
Also, I was wrong. It’s been declared a state of disaster, not state of emergency.
Anyway. Most retail stores, manufacturers etc will be required to close from either midnight tonight (Tues) or tomorrow night. No childcare centres open, schoolkids are back to remote learning. Kids with essential worker parents were allowed to attend school last time but I’m not sure this time.
Um, what else? There’s a slight irony in that my work-from-home job which deals with most Australian states went back to pre-pandemic hours just last week. And that at the age of 47, I’m finally going to have to learn to adult properly and shop etc - where I can - during the day because the curfew’s been enacted. Goodness me!
Good luck to you! It’s not as difficult as you may think!
Police said this trend included so-called “sovereign citizens” - who espouse an anti-government ideology - confronting officers.
Yeah, that looks perfectly safe.
Welp, the conservatives got their dumbing down, all right.
(and the dumbing-down part has a great deal to do with our current sitch)
