  1. We used Zoom for my FIL's 90th birthday on Sunday. Offspring and families in Texas, Nebraska, Colorado, Missouri, and Tennessee participated. Worked well.

    "...Send in the clowns. There ought to be clowns. – Last week, two craven political hack governors – Steve Sisolak in Nevada and the detestable Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan – made the indefensible decision to deny their citizens the right to be treated with hydroxychloroquine for the Wuhan Virus. On Sunday, the FDA issued an emergency authorization to doctors to use that cheap, highly-effective drug across the United States. Today, the two circus clown Governors reversed their stupid edicts, now allowing those who contract the Virus in their states to be treated with the drugs. Better late than never." The Whitmer administration has since removed the language threatening doctors from the letter and is now asking the federal government to send shipments of the drugs, Bridge magazine reports. https://dbdailyupdate.com/index.php/2020/03/31/democrat-clownshow-sisolak-whitmer-reverse-course-on-hydroxychloroquine/?utm_source=whatfinger
  4. My favorite look is putting it down unfinished, then sanding and finishing with oil based poly. Especially fir and pine. Soft wood gets love marks easily, but that's character. I did this fir floor about 14 years ago in the house we used to live in. Tons of work, and stinky poly, but we did it in the summer when we could open up the house. It was worth it to us - it's a look you can't get with a pre-finished floor. Wouldn't want to do it often, but the look is rewarding to me.
  5. You better pass. No cab, no power steering, no tilt wheel, no TA, no LED upgrade on the lighting. There. I did my part.

    So it appears we may have a cure. Couldn't find a word about this on CNN, MSNBC, CBS News, ABC News. Wouldn't want the peasants to find out. https://techstartups.com/2020/03/28/dr-vladimir-zelenko-now-treated-699-coronavirus-patients-100-success-using-hydroxychloroquine-sulfate-zinc-z-pak-update/ https://dbdailyupdate.com/index.php/2020/03/30/fda-approves-hydroxychloroquine-democrats-media-hardest-hit/

    Evidently you'd better keep your distance. "An 86-year-old woman awaiting treatment for bowel blockage at a Brooklyn hospital yesterday died after being punched by a fellow patient — for not engaging in “social distancing” amid the coronavirus, law enforcement sources told The Post on Sunday. The death of Janie Marshall of Williamsburg appeared to be the first potential crime in the city sparked by fears over the deadly contagion. Marshall was in the emergency room at the city-run Woodhull Medical Center when she was smacked in the face by a 32-year-old patient, who was awaiting psychiatric treatment and got out of her nearby bed to launch the unprovoked attack, sources said. Marshall was knocked off her feet and cracked her head on the floor shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday, sources said. Her attacker allegedly told a Health and Hospitals Corp. police officer that she did it because Marshall “didn’t stay more than 6 feet away.” The alleged assailant was issued a summons for disorderly conduct by hospital police and left the hospital without being admitted. Meanwhile, Marshall was sent for a CT scan and was awaiting the exam when she was found slumped over in the hospital around 5:40 p.m. and pronounced dead from her head injury, sources said. The NYPD wasn’t notified about the incident — which was caught on video — until around 10:30 p.m., with sources blaming the delay on the fact that Woodhull is swamped with patients due to the coronavirus pandemic. Cops were seeking to arrest Marshall’s alleged attacker on upgraded charges. She has a record of 17 previous arrests, many for trespassing, sources said." https://nypost.com/2020/03/29/elderly-woman-dies-after-being-shoved-for-not-social-distancing-sources/

    "While it is unclear at this point whether the recent suicides were directly linked to the spread of the virus, their timing alone is strongly indicative, if not proof that they were. According to local Knoxville news station WBIR, the county’s suicides over the span of two days this week equates to about 10 percent of last year’s total where 83 lives were lost to suicide. Other states have also reported an increase in suicide-related incidents as the virus continues to take its toll on the nation’s mental health. Crisis hotlines nationwide are surging with calls from Massachusetts to Oregon, both of which are states with “shelter-in-place” orders implemented, keeping people out of work and isolated at home." https://thenationalsentinel.com/2020/03/29/suicides-rising-around-the-country-amid-virus-related-shutdowns-they-surpassed-covid-19-deaths-in-tennessee/?utm_source=whatfinger

    Link at the bottom: "Last Wednesday, we published the success story from Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, after he successfully treated 350 coronavirus patients with 100 percent success using a cocktail of drugs: hydroxychloroquine, in combination with azithromycin (Z-Pak), an antibiotic to treat secondary infections, and zinc sulfate. Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment. Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four hospitalizations. Dr. Zelenko said the whole treatment costs only $20 over a period of 5 days with 100% success. He defines success as “Not to die.” Dr. Zelenko first posted his Facebook video message last week calling on President Trump to “advise the country that they should be taking this medication.” A study by the National Institute of Health (NIH) also confirmed some of Dr. Dr. Zelenko’s findings. The study by NIH showed that Zinc supplementation decreases the morbidity of lower respiratory tract infection in pediatric patients in the developing world. A second study also conducted by NIH titled: “In Vitro Antiviral Activity and Projection of Optimized Dosing Design of Hydroxychloroquine for the Treatment of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2),” also showed hydroxychloroquine to be more potent in killing the virus off in vitro (in the test tube and not in the body)." https://techstartups.com/2020/03/28/dr-vladimir-zelenko-now-treated-699-coronavirus-patients-100-success-using-hydroxychloroquine-sulfate-zinc-z-pak-update/

    I'm certainly not taking it lightly, but I don't take anything on this list lightly. Still not understanding, though, why the world stops for this one only. Lorenzo, that's an interesting site. https://www.worldometers.info/
  11. WASHINGTON, DC—Members of Congress told reporters Friday they can’t wait to read through the massive economic stimulus package they passed earlier today in response to the Coronavirus crisis. “As with other important legislation, we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Other lawmakers voiced similar sentiments, telling sources they were excited to learn about all the wonderful, economy-altering mandates contained in the bill they voted on and supported. “We couldn’t waste time reading through the bill. We had to do something, Americans are hurting,” Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) told reporters, as he hung up the phone with his stockbroker after authorizing another lucrative stock trade. At publishing time, members of Congress were lining up in front of network cameras to tell Americans how much they will benefit from the bill they have yet to read. https://babylonbee.com/news/congress-excited-to-learn-whats-in-stimulus-package-they-just-passed?utm_source=whatfinger
  12. True story - a neighbor of mine is named Kenworth. Told me he was born during Gerald Ford's administration. His mom wanted to name him Ford, but his dad said if we're going to name him after a truck we need to name him Kenworth.
