NYC and the state of Illinois have ordered that restaurants and bars close.  They are allowing take out orders!  Thank God!  I practically live on takeout / drive-thru food.

Ohio did just the same...

I feel that we're gonna celebrate like people did during Cromwellian England...by ourselves at home! (Oliver Cromwell outlawed public parties and events)....
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.

Things aren't too bad at our local grocery store. Plenty of frozen food, fresh beef and pretty much everything I needed.  The only aisle that was bare was the bread aisle. I couldn't get my split-top wheat bread.  Thank goodness the bakery makes hamburger buns and I found a small loaf of white bread. The wife is making her Manwich recipe later today, we needed some buns!

I heard that Chick-Fil-A has closed their dining area and is only taking drive through orders.

Oh no! Our governor has just ordered all indoor shopping centers to shut down. Now I can't go malling with all my besties this weekend.

From what I've been hearing over the past coupla few years, there are hardly any malls left anymore.

People pretty much quit going "malling" when online shopping started really taking off.

getting tired of seeing all those empty grocery shelves containing zero essential items: canned goods, meats, pasta... it seems CLNN (Chicken Little News Network) has done too good a job at frightening people into some sort of Apocolypse era, when actually SARS killed more people, as did MERS, and living conditions were way were during WWI and WWII (especially in the encampments). People need to get a grip- its not the end of the world.

Today's word of the day...Social Distancing!

The are shutting down bars and restaurants around here now too. Excluding carry-out, drive-thru orders.

Avoid gatherings of more than 10 people.  I don't remember the last time we had 10 members on here at the same time.

I went to the Sav-a-lot today & they were cleaned out like a hurricane was coming in.  Except for cans of hominy, creamed corn, and no-salt added corn.    Still managed to spend $9 on stuff (mostly snacks...)

I actually got the opportunity to use cironavirus to my advantage - knock on the door at 8pm while I was watching tv dressed in sweats and a housecoat and halfway down a bottle of malbec - knock knock - I answer the door - random telephone company dude wanting me to change my network.... shows his ID and clipboard - I spray sneeze all over his clipboard and fake a followup cough - then I say *sorry - Im not feeling well at all - been sneezing and coughing all day - I’m really sick* The look on the kid’s face was - how should I describe it..... terror. So much for door to door marketers. btw - I’m not sick, it was a sneezing attack from the tannins in the wine lol

California orders its nearly 40 million residents to stay home to prevent the spread of coronavirus


I'm wondering if this will happen in Wisconsin.  If our overzealous cops are going to pull over random people to see if they are out 'joy riding'!

(CNN)The nation's most populous state is ordering its nearly 40 million residents to stay home to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

Nineteen people have died and more than 900 tested positive for coronavirus in California.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom's order marks the first statewide mandatory restrictions in the United States to help combat the outbreak. It went into effect at midnight Thursday, meaning Californians should not leave home except for essential things such as food, prescriptions, health care and commuting to jobs considered crucial.
The restrictions will remain in place until further notice and come a day after Newsom warned that more than half the state is projected to be infected by the virus in two months.

does anyone else feel like the Govt. isnt telling us everything about this virus? List your favorite conspiracy theories here - I’ll throw one out here - I think this was a manufactured virus in China that was meant to thin the herd (population) by specifically targeting the elderly and the sick, but it moved to quickly, and now, like Pandora’s Box, it is globally out of control.

Where are you from?  If you don't want to answer, I understand.

I think it was started by Dr Evil....



And the only person who can stop it is Austin Powers.

I like that theory, but ultimately, it doesn't really matter. 'Cuz even if it was true, we'd probably never find out. Do we ever?

I'm sure Ohio will be closed-down.

I think we'll be in a new Middle Ages.

No, I think it is only sheer incompetence in dealing with something that occurred naturally.  But bad players have taken the opportunity to inflame the overreaction to it.  We're only a few small steps from being put under martial law, and look how easily it can be instituted.  Seems like a test run to do just that, and no doubt lessons & corrections will be learned to do it better the 'next time'.  But that's just 'crazy talk'...
