    Has anyone here been affected by;
    Work layoffs - Not in my job - in the trades
    Slow downs - Not yet, maybe when money gets tighter with clients. worried about that...
    Cut backs - No
    Exposure to virus - No reported cases anywhere near us, but wife works in healthcare business and son is in grocery stores, so possibility is there
    Quarantine - voluntary social distancing
    Self quarantine - not yet

    unfortunately, all restaurants etc are closed until further notice. We still have 16 or so inches of snow on the ground, all water is still ice that is too thin to do anything, roads are in breakup stage of frost coming out and camp is still totally inaccessible. Not much to do. Going for walks with Can

    CA teacher- sent home March 13th and told that all of our county's schools would be closed until April 14th. Our spring break was April 6-13. Our county has NO reported cases...
    Not exactly quarantined at home.
    Social distancing.
    Spend my days messing with our horses and throwing bumpers in the corral.

    Wife is a NICU nurse. It's a busy time for her because quite a few nurses are having child care issues with schools being closed. The hospital is paying double time for those that volunteer to work extra shifts.

    I hope we can go back to teaching on the 14th. I have a class that was a train wreck for the first quarter but they turned it around big time. All state testing has been cancelled. Most teachers hate testing, but my kids were looking forward to it. It is their Super Bowl and they want their chance to shine.

    Still trying to stock up on a few things. Stores around here are empty of eggs, dried beans, rice, TP, paper towels, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes (clorox, Lysol, etc.), bleach, fresh and frozen vegetables, most meats, most canned goods, etc. (but plenty of beer and wine, too bad I don't drink). We've been remodeling the house we bought about 3 yrs ago (in spits and spurts), so tomorrow, I'm going to buy the materials to build the rest of the kitchen cabinets and just settle in to do that. I need to learn a couple of software programs and should have time to work on that too. Time to get the tomatoes in the garden. Need to build some more boxes for raised beds, and weed around the trees and such, so plenty to do to stay busy. When the kitchen is done and the garden in, I have a piece of rent property that needs some work. I already have most of the materials, so we'll get started on that next.

    Have a good friend who owns a restaurant that depends, at least to some extent on student traffic. The local Univ. is closed for an indeterminate period, plus, the Texas Governor has just ordered all restaurants to close their dining rooms, the order to go into effect just before midnight tomorrow night, but encouraging folks to switch to take out. My buddy's business was already WAY off, and he is justifiably very concerned. He has owned the place for over 40yrs, and it has been a Kingsville institution for over 50. He's not sure what he's going to do, run a skeleton crew for take out orders for now, I guess. As far as I know NO KNOWN cases within 100+ miles.

    We're trying to stay away from people as much as possible, and if I can grab the last few things we need from the store tomorrow, we'll be staying home for a while.


    I was just about to start a push to pick up weddings for the summer, that's out for now. Definitely will have to tighten our belts some, but less opportunities to spend money anyway.

    Just remember to wash your face and try not to touch your hands!!

    OH, I agree with the projection on the increase in births over the next nine to ten months.

    I seldom, if ever, post a whole article, but one I read today touched on something I have been deeply worried over. I could just past the link, but I know some are a bit system challenged and others may not bother to look at the substance of the article...Therefore, I apologize in advance, but I think everyone should, by now, be asking questions....If this strikes a note with you, pass it on, call the alarm!

    How Long Will Americans Tolerate Corona-Madness?
    By Lloyd Marcus

    A usually level-headed Christian conservative lashed out on Facebook, scolding everyone they thought was not taking the coronavirus seriously enough. Fake news media has successfully infected many with irrational fear. Hearing Gov. Larry Hogan on my car radio announcing his executive order to close bars, restaurants, gyms, and theaters sounded like the script of a 1950s horror movie. “We will stop the spread of this deadly disease!” dramatically proclaimed Hogan. Little more than 100 have died in the U.S. and under 9,000 worldwide. According to the CDC, during the 2018-2019 flu season, an estimated 16.5 million people got sick and 34,000 died in the U.S. When Hogan mentioned plans to restrict church gatherings, a chill went up my spine. In the United States of America, government is mandating that people not attend church. Wow!

    CDC data confirms that the martial-law-light mandates steamrolling across America are disproportionate to the threat of the virus. Some governors and most corporations are responding to media-mob pressure to halt life in America. Others see an opportunity to land a death-blow to the Trump administration. Insidiously ignoring the CDC's no-need-to-panic-data, fake news media created and is gleefully fueling corona-madness. Using their huge bully pulpit, fake news media says anyone who dares to contradict their you're-all-gonna-die narrative will be dragged into the high tech public square, stripped naked, branded an irresponsible idiot with a hot iron and their career will be canceled.

    It is disturbing that there is practically zero push-back against governors instantaneously overruling our constitutional freedoms. Sadly, many youths are clueless regarding their constitutional freedoms. They grew up in public schools where progressive teachers taught them that the Constitution is an outdated piece of paper written by racist, sexist, homophobic, and Christian dead straight white men.
    We have far too many Bernie Bro youths who say, “If the government is going to give me free stuff, I am down with whatever controls government deem necessary.”

    A gentleman said this about Democrats/fake news media in an email, "...they are willing to destroy hard working people's jobs to accomplish their power play." This guy is spot on correct. This is why I regard Democrats'/fake news medias' gleeful spread of corona-madness so loathsome and evil. Democrats and fake news media are 100% committed to destroying Trump, their greatest Nemesis. Collapsing the U.S. economy and even the loss of American lives is acceptable collateral damage in their quest for power to control every aspect of our lives. They believe corona is their highly sought-after kryptonite to kill We-the-Peoples' superman president.

    A wise woman emailed me, “I think a lot of people are willing to do social distancing, etc., but they're unwilling to live in perpetual fear.” I say, “Amen, sister.” How long can fake news media/Democrats successfully keep Americans at a fever pitch level of irrational panic and fear? How long will U.S. businesses allow media to bully them into losing billions of dollars simply because they hate Trump? How long will it take Americans to say screw this nonsense, “I'm going out for a burger and a beer?” I believe there will be a tipping point when Americans say enough is enough, I'm going to resume my life.
    My baby boomer generation is still the largest demographic. We know our constitutional rights and will fight for them. We will not go gentle into Democrats' snap-of-their-fingers repeal of our constitutional freedoms intended to collapse our economy.

    The simple truth is the coronavirus has had very little effect, causing around 125 deaths nationwide. What has caused the unprecedented closing down of America is media-hype about the coronavirus. We are suffering the consequences of deranged Democrats and fake news media willing to sacrifice everything to stop a president from implementing his America-first agenda.
    Democrats and fake news media view the coronavirus as blood in the water to create a feeding frenzy of criticism of Trump. Remarkably, every crazy, illegal, and evil scheme to remove Trump from the White House has failed. So will corona-madness. Why? Because God put Trump into the White House and only God will take him out.

    Two buddies of mine said the hysteria is causing seniors in nursing homes to be isolated from visits by their loved ones. But Democrats/fake news media do not care. All they ever care about is furthering their socialist, communist, and progressive agendas and damaging Trump. Thank God Trump caught and denied Democrat Nancy Pelosi's sneaky attempt to hide abortion funding in Trump's corona relief spending.

    In response to a 50-degree temperature day after people who have been cooped up in their homes because of a brutally cold winter, people rush outside wearing t-shirts and flip-flops. I believe Americans will eventually respond the same way, becoming emotionally burnt out over corona-madness. This will spark a huge economic boom. Folks, the light I see at the end of the corona-madness tunnel is the strong will, spirit, and instincts of the American people. Without analyzing their feelings through a lens of political ideology, Americans will begin demanding to have their lives back: work, weddings, kid's birthday parties, restaurants, and so on. We are Americans! Trump is the perfect man in office when that day comes. He will gladly say, “I am with you folks. Let's get back to keeping America great!”

    I just read bits and pieces of this. The first thing that comes to mind is, can you not see how contradictive this is? I say that because it is screaming at Democrats yet a Republican President is having daily press conferences lately. A Republican Senate Majority leader is pushing for a 1 trillion dollar financial package.

    Is this thing overblown? A little bit, Yes I believe it is. But to point the finger directly at the Democrats for everything that is going on with regards to how this is affecting most Americans is messed up!!!
