Thanks.  It really is.  Especially the view....

I think when all this is over and done with, we have field trips to cougar's house - and do a 'daryl's house' type of jam session / video, except it would be 'cougar's house' - so it would be cooler.

btw - where is that if you don't mind me asking.

Many States are opening up. About damned time.

Here in southern Il., we haven't closed much except bars, restaurants and churches. 

 

 

New York hasn't been as fortunate.   The reason it's a bigger problem here right now is not because we are overpopulated.   Manhattan is densely populated.   The outlying counties are not necessarily.   That probably doesn't help, but the main reason we are getting hit hard is because New York is a hub for international travel.   

IMO some of the other states are getting a false sense of security, but I sincerely hope I'm wrong about that.

We had to postpone our move to our "cabin" in the woods.  I'm optimistic about next month though!

I am a member of a classic motorcycle forum and a lot of us more fortunate members contributed funds to our Australian members after they lost everything in those terrible fires. 

You have a lovely cabin in a idyllic setting but I would be terrified of a fire starting.

Illinois SAYS it's extending the lockdown, however the State is allowing more and more things to open, which is a good thing.

State parks will open, greenhouses, nursery's, elective surgeries, garden centers, animal grooming.

Rock and Roll....

More reason for optimism, Murph  - although here in San Antonio, you can face 6 months in jail for not wearing a mask - in the 5 days since implemented, while nearly 3,000 good citizens have dropped a dime on their neighbors - police have only issued 28 citations.   Even more encouraging .... California is moving to give Emergency Funding to a large group of their population - Undocumented Voters/Aliens.  They will give millions out to local non-profits to pass out to people who can somehow prove they are not documented.   This is to ensure there is no risk of these folks being identified.   Unlike those who don't wear masks here.

Just curious, how many people posting in this thread are "anti-vax"?   Or at least willing to admit it? 

Wots vax ?

Sorry it's a movement that probably only exists in the US.   We have people here that think you are better off without any vaccines than you are with them.

I'm from the US. And I've heard of the movement. 

But I've never heard the term anti-vax

It's a movement that's alive and well over here in Europe as well ä. That is, when it's not in an ICU.

Well, if there was a vax for Covid 19 I would get it.

I tend to keep away from the doctors (and it's free in the UK) .

I haven't had my anti flu jab for four years, mainly because I can't be bothered to go rather than anti.

So the cops not only have to go on domestic violence calls, drug OD calls, shooting , rapings, murders, and any other situation you can think of, and now to pile it on they have to be the mask police too.

They guy who robbed the store. He had a mask on and stayed 6 feet away. I had to hand him the money in the bag on a 6 foot pole. The guy who didn't rob the store had one on too.

Is it really free? No taxes over in the UK. Someone is paying the doc's salary and for the scripts, ect.

You know, just because you haven't heard a term that SOME are using doesn't necessarily mean you are stupid. 

But thanks for implying that I am. 

Especially with the post after this one.

I had the flu several years ago.  Man, it was AWFUL.  I mean REALLY BAD.  I've gotten a flu shot every year since without fail!  And a pneumonia shot and a shingles shot (well, not every year for those).  All we need now is a coronavirus shot!

Is the swine flu still doing the rounds? 

That one was... not fun.

Why does flu always come from  disgusting creatures?  Bats, Swine?   Can't we get at least one year with a Butterfly Flu?  Puppy Dog Flu?

Yep, it's still around.  It has mutated a little but it's still basically the same virus.  It has also been included in all Flu vaccines since '09.  Due to a combination of herd immunity through infection and vaccination, it doesn't cause anywhere near the problem it did when it first popped up.  The problem with that virus was that the human population had not been exposed to anything like it for a long time.  Many older people had been exposed to genetically similar Influenza when they were young so they were not getting that sick from it.  Kids and younger adults, on the other hand, got very sick and did have higher mortality.

And then they want a bailout from the Federal Gov. because they're broke...

At least Illinois is broke because of Union pensions....

Went to a Subway yesterday to support them. They just re-opened.

Walked in to order, but no seating allowed yet, which is stupid, there was nobody else in there. We would have been social distancing just fine.

Ya gotta wonder who's in charge of this lunacy...
